Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Good for Hair Growth?

All over the world people are talking about oxygen therapy, and how it has helped them get a hold of so many medical conditions, including hair loss.  But some may be skeptical and in need of a bit more information about it. So, let’s start by explaining what’s behind this type of therapy.

You are aware of how medicine utilizes different drugs to treat different conditions. In this case, hyperbaric medicine utilizes only one drug: pure oxygen. How? Through the lungs. One may start to wonder what is the difference between regular breathing since you’re already inhaling oxygen. Well, in this case, it is being inhaled under pressure higher than atmospheric, in special devices – hyperbaric chambers. And we’re talking pure oxygen, without carbon dioxide.

Why do we need it to stimulate our health?

This highly valuable matter is necessary for the development of all life processes; it is the basic substance of life. A person can survive 30 to 40 days without food, 3 to 4 days without water, and only 3 to 4 minutes without oxygen! This tells you everything about how essential it is for sustaining life.

The cause or consequence of the largest number of diseases is the reduction or cessation of oxygen transport to cells as end users and the consequent suffering of cells, tissues, organs, and the organism as a whole (hypoxia or anoxia). Timely application of oxygen under pressure (HBO) prevents damage to cells and the organism as a whole caused by lack of oxygen and leads to healing, regeneration, and complete recovery of the organism if the damage has already occurred.

The organic systems for breathing, heart, lungs, and blood flow have the basic function of supplying oxygen to the body. The heart of a healthy person pumps almost 8,000 liters of blood per day, and the body consumes 368 liters of oxygen. Large consumers of this matter are brain tissue, muscle tissue, digestive organs, etc.

The therapeutic effect of oxygen has been known since its “discovery” (around 1750). Since then, it has been used more than any therapeutic substrate known to man. Applied in all hospitals of the world using catheters, oxygen tents, masks, injections, incubators, local applications, and only in specialized institutions in special devices – hyperbaric chambers.

Ok, but how does it stimulate hair growth…


Do you want to prevent hair loss simply and safely? As claims, this kind of therapy is used to achieve hair regrowth efficiently and naturally, and find out how in the rest of the article.

Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of the body. It is not toxic, even at elevated doses, unless there is a pre-existing medical condition. It is used to treat hair loss. In order to understand how one needs to understand what causes hair loss in the first place.

What actually causes hair loss?

The hair growth cycle consists of 3 phases. During the first phase, it grows actively. This phase can last for years. During the second phase, it stops growing and separates from the follicles, which are actually the structures under the skin that hold it in place. The second phase lasts about 10 days. In the third phase, the follicles rest for two or three months, after which the old hair falls out. The next first phase begins when new hair starts growing in the same follicle.

Did you know that most people lose 50 to 100 hairs a day as part of the natural cycle and that this is completely normal shedding?

Now, if this cycle is disrupted or if the hair follicles are damaged, the hair can begin to fall out faster than it regenerates, leading to symptoms such as hair loss, thinning, etc.

It is important to be aware that such a condition can also be related to a person’s genetics, although other factors can interrupt the growth cycle and cause loss. Some doctors specialize in hair and scalp disorders and can identify the type of hair loss as well as its cause.

But there’s also something you can do yourself to make sure it grows again. We’re talking about oxygen therapy, of course.

It is considered a natural treatment and works well in combination with laser therapy. The therapy is painless and quick. Natural, no needles – sounds just fine, right? Surely you also want to stop this condition in a natural, painless way. Well then, all you need to do is see if there’s a hyperbaric chamber somewhere near you, and make an appointment.

Here’s how it works…


As we mentioned above, this therapy improves circulation at the injection site. This process of oxygenating the area causes angiogenesis (the process of new blood vessel growth) of the blood vessels in the area by feeding the hair follicles.

Blood vessels expand, increasing blood flow and delivery of oxygen and other nutrients. Carboxytherapy provides cell renewal and increases collagen production.

This treatment works directly on the hair root, which is a vital part of the hair and any changes in the hair root are the main cause of thinning as well as hair loss.

It uses a completely natural process of our body: the use of oxygen to eliminate carbon dioxide. Red blood cells are forced to release oxygen in order to “catch” CO2 molecules and expel them from the body. This increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation enable skin regeneration and strengthening of hair follicles.

At the same time, the treatment has a vasodilatory effect (opening of small blood vessels), which allows for improving the nutrition of the scalp with vitamins and nutrients. How? The very fact that the circulation – the flow of blood and oxygen – is improved, the vitamins and other active components that we introduce into our body are more easily delivered to that injection site.

So, there you have it. A very simple, non-invasive, all-natural way to boost your hair growth.
