Full, strong hair that shines healthy from roots to ends is probably one of the most sought-after ideals of beauty, but only very few are naturally blessed with it. Fine hair, brittle hair, unruly frizzy hair - reality has countless variations, but in most cases and with the right tricks and treatments it can be transformed into a smooth mane of dreams. It only becomes difficult if there is not only a lack of volume, length, or structure, but the hair becomes light in places or even falls out. Any kind of change can have medical causes, such as hormone fluctuations or a serious metabolic disorder, and should always be checked by a doctor.
In addition, hair growth can be helped with special scalp serums and tinctures and hair loss can be prevented. Injections of active ingredients into and under the scalp are said to be far more effective. In the following, an expert explains what this so-called unicorn lift is all about and what benefits one hopes for from it.
The unicorn lift is usually an anti-aging treatment for the face. A highly effective, endogenous serum is injected into and under the skin - in this case, the scalp. In the first step, blood is therefore taken from the patient, which is then processed in an incubator for about six hours. "In the meantime, the cells release anti-inflammatory proteins and growth factors in high concentrations," explains Dr. Murat Dagdelen from Diamond Aesthetics followed this approach. "After centrifugation, the crucial proteins filtered in this way are used and injected as a natural booster with the aid of microneedles." Unused blood can be frozen and reused for subsequent treatment.
For visible results, specialists recommend three to four treatments every two weeks. Depending on the effort, the costs vary individually and are around 600 euros per session.
The unicorn lifting is supposed to give the skin on the face more elasticity and a youthful glow (hence the name unicorn lifting) - and applied to the scalp? Even the physical treatment of the scalp with microneedles has a strong effect on blood circulation, which significantly improves the supply of nutrients and strengthens the hair from the inside out. In addition, the injected body's own protein serum actively pushes hair growth, strengthens the roots, and at the same time slows down hair loss. Isolated spots that are becoming bald or that have already thinned outgrow over time; light hair is visibly more full. "Often there are hidden hair roots below the scalp, which only receive the necessary impetus to sprout again through the unicorn lifting," explains Dr. Dagdelen the remarkable effect of the treatment. In addition, inflammatory processes and irritations are prevented and the health of the scalp is stabilized.
By the way: Even those who do not have hair loss can benefit from the unicorn lifting! Because the injections work like an intensive cure and ensure significantly healthier stronger hair.
