According to the recent research, most people with thin-looking hair have Demodex mites. Besides, we provide computerized hair scanning analysis to identify the presence of Demodex hair mites in hair follicles.
7. How long does the treatment take?
The treatment normally takes around 13 weeks, depends on individuals and severity of the hair condition.
8. How to help eliminating Demodex hair mites?
Ungex system is an all-new concept that can help eliminating the hair mites.
9. How did scientists become familiar with Demodex mites?
----Until now no one noticed the relevance of hair mites are present on the hair follicles of humans who are losing their hair!
Scientists became familiar with this parasite when it was suggested to be an aggravating factor with an acne skin. At that time there was not much information about Demodex folliculorum or proof to back up the claim, so it slipped into the ever increasing pile of research material and forgotten!
10. What is the geographic distribution of Demodex mites?
The Demodex mite spp., which belongs to Class Arachnida. In humans, the infestation is known as 'demodicosis' and occurs worldwide.
11. How many kinds of Demodex mites are living in human’s skin?
There are two kinds living in human’s skin. One is Demodex brevis that is shorter than the other one and it usually lives in glands. The one with longer tale is Demodex folliculorum and this usually lives in hair roots. 97.68% of adults have Demodex mites in their skin.
They avoid lights and prefer warm places. During the day, they consume nutrition inside of the skin and during the night they came out of the follicles and usually mating takes place at this time.
It is known that one person has about 63000 pores. Think about 7~8 Demodex mites live in one pore.
12. What is a hair follicle?
A hair follicle is a long narrow tube leading down from the skin surface to the root of the hair. Branching off the side of the hair follicle quite near the surface is a sebaceous gland that continually produces sebum, a fatty secretion to moisturize and protect the skin.
13. Where do Demodex mites live?
They live in hair follicles. While hair follicles and sebaceous glands occur virtually all over the body, follicle mites seem to have a predilection for the follicles and glands of the face. Early research indicated that they are most numerous around the nose and eyes, but some recent studies have found the highest numbers on the cheeks and forehead.
Follicle mites are long and thin the better to fit inside a long thin hair follicle with their four pairs of legs right up at the head end and the rest of their tubular body dragging behind. Demodex brevis mites live in the sebaceous glands while Demodex folliculorum mites occupy the hair follicles both species feed on sebaceous secretions, reproduce in the follicle or gland, and both occasionally leave the follicle and travel across the skin to a new follicle.
