How does it work?
The Fotona treatment for hair loss or hair thinning works by transmitting laser light at a specific wavelength that stimulates hair growth in the follicles, resulting in the strengthening of existing hair and the production of new hair growth. Hair restoration treatments work not only to drastically reduce hair loss but also to make those thin, wispy hairs thicker and healthier.
Who does it work for?
Our hair restoration treatment works equally well for anyone regardless of age or gender.
Is the treatment painful and is there a downtime?
The area treated might appear red for 24 hours and in that case, showering is postponed to the following morning. The treatment area(s) may feel a little tight but feeling subsides within a few hours and is not noticeable to anyone but the client. There is no down time and clients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
How many treatments are required to see optimal results?
Treatments are scheduled 2-4 weeks apart with a total of 6 to 8 treatments. Results may vary from person to person, and some may notice better results than others. Sometimes, depending on the situation, our PRP hair regrowth treatment can also be combined with Fotona laser hair restoration to enhance results for those clients that have been less than successful with either PRP alone, transplant surgery alone, or just want to ensure the best outcome possible.
FOTONA LASER HAIR RESTORATION
This video shows you how a session of Fotona Hair Restoration looks!
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a patient's blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.
PRP contains essential proteins and growth factors that stimulate natural hair growth. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply.
The treatment increases blood supply to the follicle, increases shaft size (thickness), triggers and maintains the growth phase, controls hair growth cycle and decreases hair loss.
We combine this treatment with other hair restoration solutions, such as Fotona Laser Hair Restoration, for some of our clients to help them achieve longer-lasting or quicker results.
