HOW DOES THE LASER WORK?

The laser uses 181 true laser diodes at 650nm and 670 nm wavelengths that output low level laser therapy (LLLT) to the scalp.  The LLLT has the following effects:
1) Increased scalp blood flow and microcirculation
2) Increases nutrient supply to enhance hair growth
3) Stimulates and accelerates hair growth
4) Stops the progression of hair loss
5) Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
6) Reduces the binding of excess levels of skin 5 alpha reductase and DHT which contribute to genetic thinning
7) Relieves scalp conditions such as psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, itchy/scaling scalp (anti-inflammatory properties)
8) Normalizes sebum production (decreases production in over activity or greasiness)
9) Reduces tight, tender scalp
The results are:
99% of all patients will stop their progression on hair loss, meaning you are able to achieve stabilization of hair loss. All of these patients will also see fuller, thicker, shinier and healthier hair.
Patients should notice a 20% increase in thickness alone within the first 3-5 months of treatment.
Upwards of 85% of patients will also see hair re-growth of terminal hairs.
*Treatment results vary person to person.

IS IT SAFE?

The illumiwave laser stimulates cell function. The effect is not thermal as in the case of surgical lasers. This non-surgical therapeutic lasers is certified Class 3A by the FDA. The energy produced by the photons of these lasers is low and does not have a thermal component that can cause injuries to users. This low level energy does not alter molecular structures, but STIMULATES the body’s mechanisms to REPAIR AND HEAL itself. This laser can also be used for wound healing and there are no reported side effects.
You should not use the Illumiwave laser if you are pregnant, have active cold sores or skin infections in the treatment area, active skin cancer, or extreme sensitivity to light.  People with a history of glaucoma, cataracts or retinal detachment should discuss this with the doctor to determine if treatment is possible.

DOES IT HURT?

You will not feel much at all while the laser is running.  Some people will feel a mild tingling sensation or a warming sensation, which goes away within 10 min of completing the treatment.

WHEN WILL YOU SEE RESULTS?

Most patients will see full stabilization of hair loss within 3 months and hair regrowth can be seen as early as 6 months.

CAN THIS TREATMENT BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

Yes. Patients can be on oral or topical medications, as well as using certain shampoos/ conditioners meant for hair loss/thinning.  In some cases, our Medica Director may suggest using Propecia or Minoxidil in combination with your treatment.  Most people will benefit from the Infusiderm hair products we offer to complement their hair health.
The excellent effects of LLLT on scalp and hair health make it an excellent addition for pre-operative and post-operative treatment when undergoing surgical Hair Restoration procedures.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT?

As long as there are living follicles in the area to be treated the laser can be effective in stabilizing and rejuvenating the hair.
This laser can work on males or females, and any race or skin color.
If the follicles are completely dead and the patient is completely bald then, unfortunately, this laser is not the right treatment modality.
