I just thought I would share the latest news in the world of Demodex mite treatment!
Ungex has been endorsed in a great article, which among other things talks about the important role Demodex play in the holistic treatment of hair, skin and scalp problems.
We would also like to thank the articles author Gregory Kirk who is a specialist in the hair and scalp care industry for taking the time to mention us in this enlightening article and for championing the awareness and importance of Demodex mites in the hair care industry.
Please see the article below.
DEMODEX MITES & THE POTENTIAL LIMITATIONS FACING PATIENTS POST TREATMENT OR SURGERY IF NOT ADDRESSED.
What are Demodex (folliculorum) Mites? and are they good or bad?
I wish I had stressed this more often over the years with colleagues, peers and mentors alike on the importance of ensuring each patient is free of Demodex mite infestation on the scalp skin, in hair tissue and deep in oil glands pre and post treatment or surgery.
Surgery, Dermatology, Para medical practices, so many other crafts treating the skin, scalp & hair could advance if we are to identify a patient pre-treatment or surgery of the degree they are host to mites either on the scalp , facial skin or nestled in hair cuticles.
What damage can Demodex follicle mites do?
Demodex follicle mites live inside the sebaceous glands and hair follicles, sucking nutrients from the hair roots and damaging the cell walls. After mating they burrow into the skin, laying eggs, at times introducing bacteria causing infection to the skin. Throughout the five phases of their life cycle, these mites destroy the skin by excreting wastes and secretions, laying eggs and dying within its layers. After death, their corpses become liquid and decompose inside the skin.
One really amazing find to this journey is having failed treating patients homes effectively, i.e… their intimate belongings and surroundings to minimizing re-infestation. Their good families can also benefit. Early in development of our commercial hair loss control & recovery system launching next year, I missed this step totally. Hence the re-infestation numbers and cases early in treating patients a few years back. Which I can say for certain contributed to some regression and hair shedding on the maintenance program and patients had to return to clinical support treatments to boost the growth and volume back.
As of late I had a chat with our friends at UNGEX, Now we can get it right!…
Seyed brought something up I had not understood how to do it effectively enough, until yesterday. We can now say Demodex can be managed in the home and that the family is also Demodex free.
If the Demodex mites are not controlled by treating the towels, bedding, furniture then re-infestation of the patient is almost certain. Even in contact with others we know they can jump and re-infest.
So the first step to be taken is with our very own staff, equipment and the clinic.
If practice staff, equipment and the clinic are not examined and treated most likely we are in the cycle to. Skin, nail or hair clinics, salons and even surgical theaters are prone and should be examined and treated. We are all on the best path in assisting recovery this I believe is just one more step in reversing hair loss naturally pre-surgery and taking the work done in surgery just that much further for a patients recovery if you will.
Most clinics, skin or scalp clinic can rid a patient of mites in a few zaps with High Frequency, added serums and tonics but if the home or their office, whether visiting a country or to be simply putting your head on a airplane pillow or head rest of the bus to the airport means we are probably in contact with a good count of mites.
So how does UNGEX prove they manage that..?
Seyed (M Mallak) Behbahani-Managing Director at UNGEX Pty Ltd shared with us he clearly has the solution for a clinic like ours to assist in the patient controlling re-infestation of the Demodex Mites.
Seyed’s centre has launched the NEWEST BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY & SOLUTION that targets DEMODEX Mites . DEMODEX Treatments are tested and proven to be effective and it is a non-invasive cosmetics procedure. Demodex mites under the Newest Breakthrough Technology is hands down one of the most amazing things to incorporate into our protocol. As a researcher and clinician watching this from baseline to recovery for the patient and for our team from trench to bench is amazing.
A bit of what we discussed at the National Institute for Integrative Medicine is on to how the Demodex can produce the enzyme lipase which is necessary for Demodex to digest the sebum it feeds on. Lipase can adversely affect the quality, condition and appearance of your scalp and hair
If the mites go unobserved, the mite populations can dramatically increase, resulting hair thinning problems. Hair loss, in some cases, pre-mature hair loss can be linked with extended demodex folliculorum activity and much more.
I endorse UNGEX!
The Strand Clinic and Ungex together not only can -bring hair follicles back but we also bring new health to the home.
