Hair loss, in both men and women, can make someone feel very self-conscious. There are many myths as to why we lose our hair and those include overuse of shampoo and hair products, too much blow drying, stress, dying hair, wearing hats and more. The truth is that 95% of hair loss is an inherited genetic condition (and not just from your Mother’s side!).
Hair grows in a cycles. A perfect hair growing cycle would be growth for about one thousand days, “resting” for about 100 days, after which it falls at. For some people these cycles turn abnormal, and that is when hair thinning (and loss) occur. In the abnormal cycle, the hair follicle becomes miniaturized, producing hair that is weak, thin and luster-less. As miniaturized follicles take over, the thinning hair does not adequately cover the head, causing the person to have balding spots (more often occurring at the crown of the head).
People cope with hair thinning and hair loss in different ways. Some try to cover it up with wigs, toupees, hats or creative hairstyles (“comb over”) while others opt for surgery (hair transplant) and/or drugs (topical or oral) to stimulate hair growth. Now there is another option for hair restoration in Santa Barbara! Evolutions Medical Spa is offering Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to help stop hair loss and re-start hair growth through healthy hair follicles.
The advanced hair restoration laser therapy works by penetrating the scalp about 5 to 6 millimeters which stimulates blood flow and micro-circulation, causing cellular metabolic changes that reverse the miniaturized hair follicles, resulting in thicker, fuller hair. This luster-full, thick hair gives the appearance of more hair and covers balding spots.
Low Level Laser Therapy hair restoration is completely painless and does not subject the person to UV radiation. Patients are required to sit under the light two times per week for a duration of 30 minutes. The laser therapy process takes place for about 6 to 12 months, depending on the individual’s response to treatment. Keeping a regular schedule is a key component to seeing results and therefore Evolutions also offers a portable hair restoring laser that can be used at home or when traveling.
This advanced laser hair restoration program is now available at Evolutions Medical SpaSanta Barbara for men and women. The package includes both laser therapy and a prescription home-care regimen with FDA-approved hair regrowth products, thus ensuring maximum efficacy.
