Laser Hair Regrowth Therapy Ireland
The Laser Hair Regrowth Therapy differs from other options as it works by stimulating the hair growth cells beneath the scalp. This specific process in known as PHOTO-BIO-STIMULATION, where the laser light is able to stimulate and repair damaged hair follicles, so they begin to grow back healthier and quicker.
Scientists have known for a long time that a certain amount of sun light affects how quickly hair will grow. The sun delivers nutrients to the body and speeds up the body flow to the head, so when exposed to the sun, hair will grow at a faster rate. It is from this concept that laser therapy began to move into the field of science. The same waves used to stimulate hair follicles from sun light are now able to stimulate hair regrowth with the use of lasers. By using a low frequency of these lights over a period of time, hair begins to slowly regrow and repair as much the same way it does with sun light.
It conforms to European standards and American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulations for safety. It is painless, with no known side effects.
It is now recognized throughout Europe and in the USA as an effective treatment for most forms of hair loss, including male and female pattern baldness. It is suitable for anybody who is in the early stages of thinning. In the first consultation with a specialist, you should clearly explain what are your expectations of the laser hair loss therapy treatment and the Trichologist should tell you whether this is the right treatment for you and whether you can achieve the results you’d like.
During Laser Hair Treatment
During Laser Hair Regrowth Therapy treatment, the laser therapy machine sits over the head. The laserhood is a static device which holds a number of diodes. The diodes omit a specific wavelength and frequency of light, delivering low level light therapy to the hair follicles.
So it is purported to encourage hair growth and improve the tensile strength of the hair fiber, possibly due to the therapy increasing microcirculation and also enhancing the hair papila’s ability to produce cellular energy. Other physiological effects are: acceleration of tissue healing, pain reduction and decrease inflammation.
Although shown to be effective in improving the thickness and fullness of hair on its own, the use of low level laser therapy is often combined with proven scalp and hair regrowth products for a full hair loss treatment program, so you will normally be given also some hair care and hair regrowth products for at-home use, in combination with the laser therapy, to try to achieve the best results possible. Repeated Laser Hair Regrowth Therapy treatments are required weekly for approximately 6 months.
The best way to explain how Low level laser light hair regrowth treatment works is as follows. The hair regrowth laser machine projects energy which in turn will massage the scalp and expands the pores of the skin. This means an increase of blood supply to the hair follicles, which will allow more nutrients to be absorbed. With these changes, the cell metabolism is also being stimulated which in turn it encourages tissue regeneration. Therefore, the existing hair can grow thicker and stronger and simultaneously a decline of hair loss you suffer is predicted.
During the Laser Hair Regrowth Therapy treatment we take a multi faceted approach where we will combine the laser technology with painless micro-needling, a process similar to the way PRP works. This will puncture the skin gently and by inducing micro-injuries it encourages the skin to regenerate and heal. This combination has shown to be very effective by improving blood circulation which in turn encourages hair regrowth by increasing the supply of nutrients to the hair follicles. Increased blood circulation is also known to reduce DHT levels as it may decrease DHT from the hair papilla.
The treatment has few main benefits like:
- No pain / no scarring
- Results will appear gradually (no need to explain yourself to anybody as it will be a gradual progress)
- Safest hair regrowth treatment (no side effects)
