Low Level Laser Hair Therapy (LLLT)

Low Level Laser hair therapy used alone, and in combination with customized topical and/or oral herbal supplementation, has produced excellent results in both men and women who have experienced hair loss.

Also known as "cold" lasers, this state-of-the-art Swedish technology was originally developed to use therapeutic soft low-light level lasers to stimulate the healing of wounds. Now it has been adapted to treat hair loss and other diseases of the scalp. The Swedish scientists discovered that pure, visible red light applied at the optimum wavelength and frequency of 670 nm has the effect of stimulating a large increase in the micro-circulation of blood supplies which increases the metabolism within individual cells and thereby helps to repair damaged tissues. When applied to the scalp, this has the effect of strengthening weakened hair follicles and stimulating new hair to grow.

We generally offer LLLT therapy using treatment protocols of 2-3 relaxing weekly visits of 20-30 minutes each for a period of several months. Most clients will see new hair growth within 6-12 months.

Protocols for fine, damaged and split ends require fewer visits with wonderful results.

With our Healthy Scalp and Thinning Hair Solutions, your freshly washed scalp and hair are first analyzed with a special magnifying scope and digital pictures are taken of your scalp and head area. The appropriate customized at-home-care program is recommended including specific natural internal supplementation to help balance your hormone levels.

We then apply Therapro Energizing Scalp Stimulator which helps to create an oxygenated, healthy environment promoting new hair growth. This is followed by a 30-minute relaxing FDA and Health Canada approved low level laser treatment - using 'spectrum specific' coloured laser light to increase circulation, oxygenation and collagen synthesis, thus creating a healthy environment for hair to grow.

We will also recommend further products from our full complement of FDA approved Mediceutical Laboratories formulations, including stimulating, non-follicle clogging, gender-specific shampoos, conditioners and styling products, all of which can help to address distinct scalp conditions and hair types in both men and women. For example, our Distinctly Feminine "W" product line is an excellent adjunct to the daily hair care routine of post menopausal women.

Who are our clients?

No two women are ever totally alike, but there is a pattern of symptoms described below that is a good diagnostic indicator of possible hormone imbalance.

Typically, our female clients are aged between 30 and 50, but may be younger. You may be pre or post-menopausal, and may have had a hysterectomy to control your heavy, irregular periods, uterine fibroids, or uterine/cervical cancer. Your periods are, or were, probably irregular in terms of both your cycle and amount of blood loss. You may also experience breast tenderness, cramping or bloating, irritability, depression, decreased libido and headaches (especially pre-menstrually), as well as difficulties with memory recall, sensitivity to cooler temperatures, body weight increase, and poor sleep patterns.
