How Laser Hair Therapy Works for
Thinning Hair and Hair Loss
People whom have Androgentic Alopecia, patterned hair loss, or DHT build up have reduced blood flow choking the hair follicle causing the new Antagen hair to be significantly thinner. It is this cycle of hair fall out and progressive thinning of the individual hair follicle that leads to what is referred to as balding. Eventually as the hair cycle repeats over-time the hair becomes increasingly miniaturized and ceases to exist. Laser Hair Therapy provides nutrition for the hair helping keep the follicle alive.

What Does the Laser Hair Therapy Treatment Feel Like?
You may experience some scalp tingling, but it is completely painless.
Is it Safe?
The device uses class 3A 5MW lasers, which has been deemed to be safe by the Food and Drug Administration. There is no burning or heat sensations. The treatment has no known side effects.
Should I Use iRestore Every day?
No. It is recommend to use iRestore 3 times per week for 30-minutes as the hair follicles could potentially stop responding to the laser if used too often. The user is directed to skip a day in-between treatments.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
Individuals experience pattern baldness when their hair follicles begin to miniaturize. As hair follicles shrink, the new hair shafts they produce become increasing smaller and finer with each following hair cycle. In the case of a person experiencing noticeable hair loss the follicles become too miniaturized and weak to generate hair and fall into a dormant state. Follicles can remain in a dormant state for several years until ultimately they completely stop producing hair. iRestore assists most users by stimulating and producing light energy for these small hairs making them healthier and stronger.
It generally takes 3 months to begin visually seeing an improvement. With hair transplant surgery, it generally takes 9 months for the hair to completely grow back in. Be patient and understand that the hair revitalization process does not occur overnight, but you could see gradual positive changes month after month. The speed of normal hair growth is roughly 1.25 centimeters or 0.5 inches per month, being about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year. The older you are the speed of hair growth may slow down to as little as 0.25 cm or 0.1 inch a month.
Is There Any Substantiation that Low-level Laser Therapy Works?
The FDA cleared two United States companies for marketing through the Premarket Notification/510(k) process as adjunctive devices for promoting hair growth, the LaserComb device was cleared for males in Jan 2007 and females in June 2011; and the prescription unit used in hair restoration clinics received clearance in Feb 2010, which was cleared for only females. Clearances were based on the presentation of extensive clinical data to support such claims. These laser hair therapy device clearances brought global media exposure educating the public about this revolutionary hair loss treatment.

What If I am Almost Completely Bald Will iRestore Bring My Hair Back?
Once the hair follicles have completely fallen out laser hair therapy cannot revitalize the hair, if you’ve virtually gone bald.

Though, laser hair therapy is a great resource that may enhance the recovery process following hair transplantation surgery.
