Laser hair loss treatment in Edmonton

Hair loss can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Reasons for hair loss include genetics, hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiency or the shortening of the hair follicle’s life cycle. The innovative Smooth Mode from Fotona Er-Yag laser has shown significant results as a hair loss treatment.

Why do people lose hair?

We lose hair every day, it is normal. On average, we lose about 100 hair follicles from the scalp every day, which is 0.1% of our total hair. During its life cycle, a hair follicle goes through three defined phases: The anagen phase (the growing phase) that lasts 3-5 years, the Catagen phase (short transition phase) that lasts about 10 days and the Telogen phase when the hair falls out. For most healthy people about 90 percent of their hair follicles are in the Anagen phase.

Different laser, different results

The difference is similar to the difference between getting warm and getting burned. The laser hair removal delivers a strong pulse of energy to burn the dark hair follicles. Fotona Er-Yag laser works differently as it is not absorbed by the hair follicle colors, but by water in the scalp. Higher temperatures increase blood flow and help hair follicles grow faster and stronger.

How does laser hair loss treatment work?

Foton Laser delivers nourishment to the hair follicles and deeply stimulates the root of the hair at the cellular level. The boost of laser light revitalizes and enlivens the weakened hair follicles. Moreover, it stimulates growth factors, reversing the thinning process, and helps restore and extend your hair’s growth natural cycle.

What results should I expect from laser hair loss treatment?

The results are fuller scalp with stronger and thicker hair. Most of the clients start seeing results after the fourth session. However, it may vary considerably from patient to patient.

Does Laser work for all types of hair loss?

It is important to understand there are many causes of hair loss, and laser treatment is not a cure. For example, some cases of hair loss are directly linked to hormonal imbalance and autoimmune diseases. In this example, laser treatment will help reduce the hair loss and restore the life cycle for the follicles, however, it will not eradicate the cause of hair loss.

How many laser hair loss treatments do I need?

We recommend one session (usually take thirty min) every two weeks for a total of eight-sessions, followed up with one session every following month.

Can I combine laser hair restoration treatment with other treatments?

Yes, we recommend combining the laser restoration therapy with Rich-platelet Plasma (PRP) injection. We also recommend using some collagen products and multivitamins compounded, especially for this treatment.
