Laser Hair Restoration
Low level lasers are the latest and most powerful technology to not only stop hair loss but it is proven to rejuvenate, restore, re-grow and strengthen hair. It is the only FDA (Federal Drug Association) approved treatment to regrow hair without the use of medication or surgery.
1000’s of men and women worldwide are living with a new lease of life thanks to this low level laser treatment and have benefited from;up to 95% regrowth
- only non medical/drug based treatment for hair loss
- average of 19 new hairs per cm2
- completely painless treatments
- no surgery needed
- up to 80% increase in hair strength
- stops further hair loss almost immediately
- promotes and increase in the thickness of hair
- up to 50% increased blood flow to the scalp
- absolutely NO side effects
How Does It Work?
Firstly you need to understand that hair is an excretion of dead keratinised cells from the body. Our cells are constantly dying and are disposed through our skin and scalp.
From the day we are born we have the maximum amount of follicles on our scalp. This varies depending on hair colour, for example blondes have around 150,000 follicles whilst brunettes have around 100,000 and red heads around 86,000. Our hair has a life cycle which varies between 2-7years depending on how long our hair grows.
Everything we ingest is eventually excreted through our scalp or skin.When the cells have died and keratinised in the dermal papilla the dead cells are pushed up and out of the scalp producing our hair.
Pattern Baldness is caused by testosterone. Boys start to produce testosterone at puberty around the age of 13-16. In women pre-menopause, poly-cystic ovaries or diabetes can all cause an increase in testosterone.
When testosterone and 5-Alpha reductase (an enzyme we produce) combine they convert in to what is know as DHT (dihydro-testosterone). DHT is the main cause of hair loss.
DHT is responsible for the slow down in cell division in the dermal papilla. It blocks the nutrients and food getting to the base of the dermal papilla thus resulting in less cells to keratinise, divide, die and be excreted from the scalp. This results in the hair becoming finer and finer and shorter and shorter and the follicle becomes smaller until production stops completely, as seen on the diagram below
In the human body there are only 2 receptors of DHT, these are the top of the head or in men also the prostate.
As the hair gets finer the scalp produces more sebum to protect the scalp and it’s this sebum that fills the gap around the follicle. If the follicle fails to produce a hair the whole follicle is filled with sebum, over time this can close off and kill the follicle for good.
So early intervention is the key. If the follicle has not completely died it can be revived and reversed with low level laser treatment.
How Low Level Laser Treatment Restores the Hair
Low level laser mimics the energy that was once created in the matrix in order to produce the cell division that previously occurred, resulting in the hair cycle reversing and becoming thicker again, as seen in the diagram below;
This is supported by the DHT blockers which are natural vitamins that are taken twice a day to help block the DHT from attaching to the base of the follicle. So we are attacking it from inside and out. Along with the shampoo, conditioner MGT (maximum Growth Therapy) and Scalp Therapy.
