What is Laser Hair Regrowth?
Laser hair regrowth is a state-of-the-art procedure that makes use of Rotational PhotoTherapy (RPT) to deliver laser beams directly to the area being treated. This laser energy stimulates hair follicles that are no longer producing hair to begin growing them again. When laser light is emitted onto the scalp, the effects of the DHT enzymes that block proteins are greatly reduced, making it possible for new strands to develop.
The Revage system is the most popular one used for laser hair regrowth. The beams that are transmitted through the Revage system do not contain any thermal properties and are therefore referred to as cold lasers. Even so, they are highly effective at stimulating hair follicles, with results often being seen in as little as eight weeks.
Multiple sessions are required to achieve optimum results. In the beginning, these sessions will be scheduled very close together and will gradually be performed farther and farther apart once new growth begins. The final results are typically enjoyed for up to one year.
The Best Candidates for Laser Hair Regrowth
Since there are no incisions or anesthesia, laser hair growth can be performed on nearly anyone. You must be committed to undergoing multiple treatment sessions if you are to enjoy the maximum benefits.
Planning Your Laser Hair Regrowth Surgery
During your consultation Dr. DiBernardo will provide you with a proposed treatment schedule. It is important that you discuss any scheduling conflicts with him during that time, as maintaining regular appointments is crucial to your success.
Preparing for Your Laser Hair Regrowth Surgery
You do not need to make any preparations beforehand. However, you may want to bring some reading material to enjoy while Dr. DiBernardo performs your procedure.
Types of Anesthesia
When undergoing a laser hair regrowth procedure, you will not require any anesthesia, nor will you need any other medication to help you relax.
The Laser Hair Regrowth Procedure
You will sit in a chair that is similar to a barber’s chair. The laser hair regrowth system will be positioned just above your head and will transmit laser beams onto your scalp exactly where needed. Each procedure will take less than one hour.
How Much Does Laser Hair Regrowth Cost?
Laser hair regrowth is a highly customized procedure, which is why it is not possible to provide you with a cost up front. During your consultation Dr. DiBernardo will assess the amount of hair loss you have and then come up with a laser hair regrowth treatment plan especially for you. At that time, he will be better able to provide you with an accurate cost. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®.
