Men and women alike can suffer from thinning hair and often desire at-home treatments such as iGrow® to help alleviate hair loss. Montclair, NJ residents in need of iGrow® turn to New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, serving patients from Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What is iGrow®?
Approved by the FDA, iGrow® is a device that resembles a helmet with a set of headphones attached. This device delivers low-level light therapy to the scalp in an effort to stimulate new hair to grow. In addition, the helmet also contains LED lights, which stimulates cell growth. It delivers results in only a few weeks without the need for more invasive procedures.
The Best Candidates for iGrow®
Female hair loss is measured using the Savin Scale. This scale uses images to depict the most common patterns of hair loss among women. The ideal female patient will have a pattern that most closely matches images one to two through eleven to one. She should also not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Men with mild to moderate androgenetic alopecia can also benefit.
Planning Your iGrow® Procedure
You must wear your iGrow® helmet approximately 30 minutes daily. For best results, you should schedule your treatments for around the same time each day.
Preparing for Your iGrow® Procedure
Dr. DiBernardo will give you specific instructions as to which wavelength of LED and laser light to use and will also show you how to adjust your iGrow® helmet accordingly. After that, you will only need to test your helmet briefly before placing it on your head each day.
The iGrow® Procedure
Simply place the correctly-adjusted iGrow® device on your head and allow the LED and laser lights to work their magic. The device even contains a built-in Mp3 function that allows you to enjoy your favorite music during your treatment. You will begin noticing results within a few weeks, with optimum results being noticed after approximately nine months.
