How does the laser work?

The IllumiWave Pro-series laser uses a total of 181 multi-wavelength lasers to stimulate hair improvement effects. Laser bio-stimulation energy is delivered to the scalp which in turn opens up the vascular network within the scalp by using a cell signalling process. The laser energy delivered to the scalp increases microcirculation by mobilizing calcium stores. The increased ATP (Adenosine-5′-triphosphate) production cascades into increased protein and nutrient production which is delivered up to the hair follicle site.

Does it hurt? Is it safe?

The illumiWave Pro-series laser is completely pain-free and completely safe to use. Some people report a mild tingling or warming sensation which typically goes away within 20 min of completing the treatment.

The illumiwave hair rejuvenation laser stimulates cell function. The effect is non-thermal in contrast to surgical or hair removal lasers. The laser’s 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 that is why there are no reported side affects.

When do patients start to 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 patients use anything else in combination to increase results?

Yes. Patients can be on oral or topical medications, as well as using certain shampoos/ conditioners meant for Hair loss/thinning.

Who is a good candidate?

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 male or female, 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 for them.
