Microneedle introduction: good news for patients with hair loss!

If you are losing your hair, are you discouraged after trying many methods but the results are still not ideal? I believe that the most commonly used treatment is to apply minoxidil externally, but it may be found that the hair grows very slowly after a few months of use. This is not because minoxidil is ineffective, but there is a problem with the medication. The amount of medicine absorbed by the skin is really limited, coupled with the interference of hair, oil and dander, it is even less pitiful, then you need a new way of medication-microneedle introduction. Everyone should know a little about micro-needling. Micro-needling therapy has been widely used in facial beauty at home and abroad. In recent years, it has been gradually applied to the treatment of hair loss. The principle of micro-needling is very simple. Through ultra-micro needles, numerous tiny channels are opened in the epidermis. On the one hand, it stimulates the synthesis and release of its own endogenous growth factors and collagen, on the other hand, it can promote the skin to absorb exogenous drugs or nutrients, and can easily transmit the drugs to the epidermis and dermis. Compared with simple application, it can only stay In the stratum corneum, the absorption effect is increased by nearly 10 times. Commonly introduced drugs are the hair growth liquid of minoxidil and plant active ingredients, which are introduced through microneedles to promote the proliferation of dermal papilla cells, make the hair follicles enter the growth phase, promote hair growth, and provide various nutrients to the hair follicles to make the hair firm . Microneedling treatment generally needs to be performed 1-2 times a week and must be operated by a dedicated person. Microneedling is an invasive operation and must comply with aseptic operation procedures. Please consult a physician for details and strictly implement the precautions after microneedling. The advantages of microneedle are its convenience, economy, benefits, excellent effect and no obvious side effects; its indications include most types of hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and postpartum alopecia. If you are still worried about the unsatisfactory effect of hair loss medication, you may wish to give it a try.

Food switching in infancy

Hebei Xianghe Health Management Co., Ltd. focuses on early childhood development intervention and rehabilitation education. As the infant grows and matures, it needs to enter the milk replacement period from the conversion of pure milk at birth to solid food. The muddy food during the milk-changing period is an insurmountable food form in the development of human ecology. It not only provides nutrients, but also plays an important role in promoting the development of children’s digestive function and the development of eating ability and behavior. It should be paid attention by pediatricians. (1) Food conversion of babies with different feeding methods The food conversion process of infant feeding is a process of gradually adapting babies to the taste of various foods, cultivating babies to be interested in other foods, and gradually switching from milk as the main food to eating solids . The problem of food conversion for breastfeeding babies is to help babies gradually replace breast milk with formula milk or animal milk, while introducing other foods. Part of breastfeeding and artificially feeding babies’ food conversion is to gradually introduce other foods. (2) Transfer food (also known as auxiliary food) Transfer food is a semi-solid food rich in energy and various nutrients added to the transition to adult solid food in addition to breast milk or formula milk (animal milk) ( Muddy foods) and solid foods (Table 55). The time and process of introducing food to the baby should be suitable for the baby’s ability to accept, to ensure that the food structure, flavor, etc. can be accepted by the baby. The addition of supplementary foods (often referred to as complementary foods) should be based on the baby’s physical growth, nerve development, feeding skills, social skills and other aspects of the decision to introduce other foods. Generally, the baby should weigh 6.5-7 kg to maintain a stable posture, control trunk movement, Sitting on the seat, eating from the spoon, etc. At this time, the age is mostly 4-6 months old. Principles of introduction of supplementary foods: (1) From less to more: That is, a small amount of rice powder containing fortified iron is given to the baby immediately after breastfeeding and eaten with a spoon, which can replace one milk amount after 6 to 7 months of age. (2) From one to many: such as the introduction of vegetables, each vegetable puree (mushroom) should be tasted 1-2 times / day, until 3-4 days after the baby gets used to another one to stimulate the development of taste. The introduction of a single food method can help understand whether a baby has a food allergy. (3) From thin to coarse: The transition from mud (pile) to minced can help learn chewing and increase the energy density of food. (4) From soft to hard As the baby ages, a certain hardness of the food valley can promote the child’s teeth eruption and chewing function formation. (5) Pay attention to the development of eating skills: try to let the children take the initiative to participate in eating, such as 7-9 months children can grab food, and can eat with a spoon after 1 year old, which can not only increase the baby’s interest in eating, but also help coordinate eye-hand movements And develop independence. It is not appropriate to use forced and violent passive feeding methods to cause infants and young children to have a psychological reaction of boredom and fear of eating.
