How does it work?
Laser Hair Rejuvenation works by using low-level lasers to permeate the scalp and stimulate blood flow around the hair follicles, rejuvenating the scalp and stimulating hair growth. The therapeutic light is absorbed by cells surrounding the follicle, resulting in a safe and comfortable treatment with no side effects.
When will I see a visible change?
Visible hair growth can usually be seen from the 12-month mark following regular treatment. However, a change in hair loss/shedding can be noticeable immediately. These timings are approximate and change per person depending on responsiveness to treatment and frequency of rejuvenation sessions.
