How It Works

The science of hair growth and loss

Hair grows in a continuous cycle made up of four stages - Growth, Transition, Resting and Shedding. Every hair will go through this life cycle, no matter of age or gender. Up to 20% of your hair will be in the Transition or Resting stage ready to shed. Every shed hair in turn, should be replaced by the growth of a new one. Up to 90% of your hair is growing, a stage that usually lasts between 3 and 6 years. However, when the Growth stage begins to shorten, hair loss will start to set in.

The science of laser re-growth treatment

Laser treatment stimulates the damaged hair follicles just a few mm below the surface of the scalp, increasing protein production and flow of oxygen in a patient’s bloodstream.

This increased oxygen flow delivers more nutrients to the hair follicle and reduces levels of DHT hormones. The follicles are able to heal and re-grow normal, healthy hairs, stabilising hair loss and improving hair thickness and texture.

Laser treatment stages

By using laser therapy, hair loss can be halted and reversed in three stages:

  1. Preventing the loss and thinning of hair (usually 2-3 months)
  2. Improving the thickness, strength and shine of hair (3-5 months)
  3. Promoting the growth of new full-sized hairs (6-9 months)


Typical laser treatment

We recommend the following laser treatment cycle for patients:

  1.  2 x weekly for the first three months
  2.  1 x weekly for the next three months
  3.  If further treatment is required, this can be scaled down to 2 x monthly appointments

Our laser therapy is very easy to set up and manage. Any staff member can turn on the machine and check the position over the patient’s head to ensure the entire scalp is covered. Each laser treatment lasts for 20 to 30 minutes. The laser machine automatically turns off after this session so patients can return to reception once their treatment is complete. During treatment patients can relax and read comfortably. Sessions should be scheduled with at least one day in between to allow the effect of the laser to be maximised.
