Like every part of our bodies, time and the stresses of modern life can take their toll on our scalp causing it to become unhealthy and not function properly. This can lead to or exasperate hair loss.

AQ Advanced Hair Complex is a topical hair loss product, rich in growth factors and specifically designed to nourish the scalp and help to repair damaged hair follicles to aid the growth of normal, healthy hair.

The AQ Skin Solutions brand is an award-winning range of cosmeceuticals from America which are based upon the use of growth factors. The range was pioneered by Dr Ahmed Al-Qahtani, PhD who has done extensive research into the medical applications for growth factors in wound healing.

Growth factors are found naturally in the human body and are crucial for activating and stimulating stem cells to produce new cells within the body. Growth factors come in a variety of forms and are responsible for different actions, including blood vessel formation, collagen and elastin production, as well as cell division and production.

By applying additional growth factors to areas where we want to trick the body into repairing tissue, scientists have discovered that they offer a potent solution to many restoration needs and are now used in many applications where growth factor induced therapies are needed to improve and heal tissue and to restore healthy function.

The AQ Advanced Hair Complex literally allows us to get to the root of the problem of hair loss and hair thinning using a follicle-stimulating formula.

The produce was designed and created to both prevent and improve hair loss, by rejuvenating damaged or ageing hair follicles, improving hair quality and thickness, increasing circulation and nutrition within the scalp and follicle, and restoring healthy hair growth cycles using patented growth factor technology.

By supplementing the ‘diet’ of the stem cells found in the hair follicles with growth factors and other active ingredients, we are able to nourish the hair follicles and support them to thrive and produce healthy and functionally optimal hair growth.

The system provides for a dual functionality or combined targeted approach to hair loss improvement, offering both a home use treatment regime for you to follow, alongside in-clinic professional treatments. This combined approach maintains a significant level of active support to restore and regenerate healthy hair follicles.

How does it work?

Based on AQ’s ‘GF-Technology’, Advanced Hair Complex has been specifically formulated with a growth factor combination that meets the particular needs of the scalp.

The stem cells found in our hair follicles are crucial for hair growth so the ingredients in this concentrated serum have been carefully selected and refined to support these vital cells. This restores the scalp to optimum health by repairing damaged hair follicles and stimulating regeneration of active, new hair follicles.

The serum can be applied at home, but Dr Sherif Wakil also performs an in-clinic treatment using the Dermastamp or Dermapen which enhances penetration of the AQ product and further stimulates the wound healing response by creating micro-channels in the scalp.

Your suitability for AQ Advanced Hair Complex will be established during a consultation with Dr Wakil.  A full medical history will be taken, along with a physical examination of your scalp and hair.

If you have thinning hair or hair loss or simply want to improve the health of your hair and scalp, without undergoing invasive or minimally invasive hair restoration treatments, then AQ Growth Factor Advanced Hair Complex may be an ideal solution for you.

Treatment with AQ Growth Factor Advanced Hair Complex doesn’t involve any pain or discomfort. The product is non-greasy and has no reported side effects. If treatment is combined with medical skin needling using the Dermastamp or Dermapen, you can expect some mild discomfort.

Treatment with the AQ Growth Factor Advanced Hair Complex involves a five-week course combining in-clinic treatments with at home application.

You will need to wash and dry your hair and scalp before applying the product to the areas you wish to treat. You then massage the area for around five minutes and repeat the process every other day until all the vials of product have been used. You will also come in every week for treatment using the Dermastamp or Dermapen

There are no reported side effects when using this product. Mild tenderness may be noted immediately after the medical skin needling treatments which will quickly resolve.

Advanced Hair Complex can improve the overall condition of the scalp, stimulate new hair growth as well as making the hair thicker, fuller-looking and healthier.
