LASER HAIR STIMULATION (HaiRestart)
cosmetic MD can offer Fotona's HaiRestart treatment at the Paddington practice.
Your hair follicles are all in different stages of their growth cycle at any particular time. There is an active growing phase (with a hair) and a dormant phase (without a hair). Baldness (or alopecia) occurs when the hair shaft falls out and more and more follicles become dormant.
Certain molecular pathways are involved in the follicle cells that determine whether the follicle comes out of the dormant phase back into a growing phase. These pathways are the targets for various non-surgical treatments available for alopecia such as topical and oral medications or platelet rich plasma. Laser hair stimulation is now another option for stimulating hair regrowth.
What are the key advantages of Fotona's HaiRestart program?
- Prevention of further hair loss
- Increase of hair density and thickness
- Promotion of new follicle growth
- No medications
- No down-time
How does Laser Hair Stimulation work?
Fotona has a patented special mode (SMOOTH® mode) that gently delivers laser light to the tissue, affecting the scalp hair follicles in a safe and controlled way.
Fotona's SMOOTH® mode delivers the laser energy in a non-ablative manner, producing precisely controlled mild thermal pulses. The overall effect is a gentle heating of the skin of the scalp which triggers the production of growth factors necessary for active follicles. There is no significant ablation of the skin.
How many sessions are required?
The current protocol consists of 6 to 8 sessions every 2 weeks or so. We cannot advise on the exact or maximum number of treatments required for any particular person, some will need more and some less to see results.
Maintenance sessions can be repeated every 6 to 12 months.
What can I expect after the treatment?
There is no downtime with this treatment, most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.
