Fotona HAIRestart®: Non-Invasive Hair Regrowth Treatment
It is perfectly normal to shed between 50 and 100 strands of hair a day. This will unlikely cause noticeable thinning of the hair on the scalp because new hair is always growing at the same time.
When you shed significantly more than 100 strands per day, you are likely suffering from teologen effluvium, or hair loss.
Male pattern and female pattern hair loss are the most common form of hair loss affecting men and women respectively.
Causes of hair loss
HEREDITARY HAIR LOSS Perhaps the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. If your grandparents, parents or siblings have hair loss, you are likely to suffer from hair loss too. This means that each hair follicle will shrink and eventually stop growing hair. Shrinking of hair follicles can begin as early as in your 20s.
Female pattern hair loss is a distinctive form of diffuse hair loss that occurs mainly in women. It is usually defined by overall thinning of hair or a widening of natural part.
On the other hand, male pattern baldness tends to develop a little more slowly. It begins as a receding hairline or bald spot on the top of the head. It can take years before the bald spot or receding hairline becomes visible.
EXTRINSIC AGEING As we grow older, our hair become grey and hair growth also slows. Hair loss associated with ageing happens to almost everyone. Hair strands become smaller, more fragile, and have less pigment.
EXTREME STRESS We may notice that significant emotional stress, physical stress, and environmental stressors can sometimes lead to hair loss, causing hair to shed at a quicker rate.
POST-PREGNANCY AND OTHER PHYSICAL STRESSORS Major events such as childbirth, recovering from severe illness, post-operation, or even the death of a loved one can cause your hair to shed more than usual. The good news is, if these stressors disappear, the hair will likely grow back.
CERTAIN MEDICATION Some drugs such as acne medication containing retinoids, antibiotics and antifungal, birth control pills, and cholesterol drugs.
What is Fotona HAIRestart?
Fotona HAIRestart hair regrowth stimulation is an effective method for treating a wide range of hair loss treatments. This gentle laser works by stimulating dormant hair follicles to promote hair regrowth.
The Fotona SMOOTH mode enables the doctor to control the delivery of energy and provide the best outcome for the patient, with minimal discomfort and downtime. By safely increasing the temperature of the scalp, Fotona HAIRestart aims to induce tissue regeneration and promote new follicle growth.
How does Fotona HAIRestart work?
The mode of action lies in the patented Fotona SMOOTH pulses that gently deliver laser energy into the sensitive tissue, triggering the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles in a safe and controlled manner.
Fotona SMOOTH operates at the optimal infrared Er:YAG laser wavelength of 2.94μm that coincides with the maximal absorption in the skin.
The patented feature of Fotona SMOOTH has the ability to act in a non-ablative manner, producing precisely engineered mild thermal pulses. This ensures that the laser energy is delivered to the tissue gently and effectively, heating the scalp in a safe and controlled pulsed manner.
The overall effect is a gently heating of the skin, inducing the scalp to produce growth factors, without any significant ablation of the epidermis.
