Ell-Cranell with alfatradiol for hair loss
ELL-CRANELL 250 Micrograms- ml Alfatradiol 250 mcg/ml
Ell-Cranell with alfatradiol is an over-the-counter medicine used to treat hormonal hereditary hair loss – the most common form of hair loss in men and women. Alfatradiol works specifically against the main cause of hereditary hair loss and only where it is necessary: directly at the hair root. Ell-Cranell with alfatradiol can therefore be used by men and women and is very well tolerated. With the patented applicator, you apply the solution directly to the affected areas of the scalp only once a day. Your hair will not be soaked or greasy. The hairstyle is retained. 80% of the users confirm the therapeutic success with Ell-Cranell – for less hair loss and visibly more and thicker hair.
Benefits of Ell-Cranell with alfatradiol
How does Ell-Cranell work?
Ell-Cranell against hair loss works with alfatradiol. The active ingredient alfatradiol reduces the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which damages the hair roots. This protects the overly sensitive hair roots and the hair can grow again. Important: Ell-Cranell only works locally in the scalp and does not interfere with the body’s own hormonal regulation.
Application of Ell-Cranell
Ell-Cranell with alfatradiol is applied to the scalp once a day at the start of treatment. To do this, simply turn the patented applicator and stroke evenly over the affected areas of the scalp with the two “exit fingers”. Now the active ingredient alfatradiol is quickly absorbed into the scalp and reduces the harmful DHT effect directly on the hair roots. After the hair loss has improved, you can reduce the application to every second to third day. As with all preparations against hormonally hereditary hair loss, the duration of therapy is approx. 3 to 6 months in order to obtain the first visible results.
For the correct duration of therapy and first visible results, we recommend the Ell-Cranell 3x100ml therapy pack, for permanent results in long-term treatment the 3x200ml value pack.
How do you recognize hair loss?
Scattered hair in the sink, on the pillow, in clothing or on the hairbrush is completely normal and harmless. One speaks of hair loss only if more than 100 hairs are lost every day over a longer period of time. Visible hair loss is often seen in men in receding hairlines or on the top of the head. In women, hair loss usually shows up as thinning hair, especially on the parting.
Possible triggers and causes for hair loss
Hair loss can have various causes. The most common form is hereditary hair loss. The cause is an over-sensitivity of the hair roots to the body’s own messenger substance dihydrotestosterone (DHT for short). DHT acts directly on the hair roots in the scalp and in people with hereditary DHT hypersensitivity, the hair roots are damaged as a result. The affected hair falls out prematurely and does not grow back fully.
But physical or psychological stress, iron and vitamin deficiencies or hormonal changes can also cause hair loss. All of these triggers imbalance the physiology of the scalp and impair the function of the hair root cells. The result is hair loss.
Ell-Cranell alfa is a topical hair loss application popular mainly in Germany. Its sole active ingredient is alfatradiol. Ell-Cranell alpha is almost identical to Pantostin. Both Pantostin and Ell-Cranell alpha are said to protect hair follicles from the harmful attacks of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), without any negative hormonal impact. Hence, they can be used by both men and women. These products usually have very good tolerance but they are considered to be relatively weak DHT inhibitors. Therefore, they seem to be more suitable as a treatment for women, who have fewer options when it comes to treating hereditary baldness. It is assumed that alfatradiol-based products can slow the balding process but they should not be expected to regrow lost hair.
A clinical study performed in Germany seemed to reveal that Alfatradiol may perform well at slowing down or stopping the progression of hair loss whereas minoxidil proved to increase hair density and overall hair shaft thickness.
The study can be found below:
Comparison of the efficacy and safety of topical minoxidil and topical alfatradiol in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in women:
Two drugs which are approved for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in women in Germany were compared with regard to their influence on hair growth.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
Patients were randomized to group I (n = 52) who used 2% minoxidil solution twice daily for a period of 12 months or to group II (n = 51) who used 0.025% alfatradiol solution once daily for 6 months and were then switched to 2% minoxidil solution for months 7-12. Changes in hair growth parameters were determined using the TrichoScan.
Topical treatment with 2% minoxidil solution for 6 months resulted in a significant increase of cumulative hair thickness (p < 0.0001) and absolute hair density (p < or = 0.0025), whereas these parameters of hair growth remained nearly unchanged after 6 months of treatment with alfatradiol solution. Evaluation of the same parameters from month 7 to month 12 demonstrated that 12 months minoxidil treatment resulted in an increasing stabilization (group I). After the alfatradiol –>minoxidil switch in group II a significant increase in cumulative hair thickness (p < 0.0001) and absolute hair density (p < 0.0001) was achieved. Both study medications were well tolerated.
Treatment with minoxidil can induce an increase in hair density and hair thickness, whereas treatment with alfatradiol results in deceleration or stabilization of hair loss.
The study above seems to present that minoxidil is superior to alfatradiol in that it has the potential to regrow hair whereas alfatradiol may have the potential to stabilize an existing hair loss condition.
