Peptide used for hair growth and restoration but requires valproic acid to activate it. Alone, this peptide has shown the best results for hair growth but is often used in combination with other hair restoration peptides. It has also shown great results when used after micro-needling procedures.
- PTD-DBM 25ml Spray, drops, or foam: $120
- Valproic acid 30ml Spray, drops or foam: $100
Benefits May Include:
- Improved hair growth
- Increased follicle development
- Prevention of hair loss by inhibiting shrinkage of hair follicles
PTD-DBM is a topical hair product that helps activate the Wnt-Beta-catenin pathway via inhibition of CXXC5. This particular pathway has proved to help rescue DHT induced hair follicle miniaturization. CXXC-type zinc finger protein 5 (CXXC5) is a negative regulator of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway associated with hair restoration and wound healing. Follicle development and formation can be impeded by CXXC5 binding with the protein Dishevelled. PTD-DBM is a very recently created peptide that interferes with the binding process of CXXC5 and Dishevelled. Studies have proven that PTD-DBM is significantly more effective at inducing hair neogenesis when combined with Valproic Acid, which stimulates the Wnt/β-catenin pathway when applied topically. It’s recommended to use this combination post-micro needling to take advantage of the follicle development that is induced naturally by the wound healing process.
