Hair loss in men and women can be frustrating and embarrassing, even though it affects a huge part of the population. Thankfully, there are options, like PRP paired with Illumniwave Laser treatments.
WHAT IS PRP?
PRP is an exciting, non-surgical option for patients suffering from hair loss, thinning hair, pattern baldness, and even alopecia in some cases. Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for hair loss has three steps to it: drawing your blood, processing it, then injecting it back into the scalp. The blood is processed by putting it into a machine called a centrifuge, which separates out the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich in platelets, is then injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. These platelets contain healing growth factors which trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle, while increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.

WHAT IS ILLUMNIWAVE?
Illumiwave is a highly effective treatment for those with thinning hair. The illumiwave laser stimulates healthy cell function. Most patients will see full stabilization of hair loss within 3 months and hair regrowth can be seen as early as 6 months with the Illumniwave treatments. 99% of all patients will stop their progression on hair loss, meaning you are able to achieve stabilization of hair loss. All of these patients will also see fuller, thicker, shinier and healthier hair.
Hair follicle weakening can occur in the scalp’s vascular network when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT disrupts the binding of essential proteins and nutrients to cells in the follicle. In time, this lack of nutrients leads to a weakening of the hair in the follicular site. Regeneration of new and healthier cells in the scalp can increase hair quality, hair thickness and hair growth.
Bio-stimulation using lasers at 650nm and 670nm wavelengths are reported to increase nutrient transport and cellular ATP production of cells in the inter-membrane space of the scalp. Furthermore, increased ATP synthesis dramatically increases the mobilization of calcium ion (Ca2+) stores and cell signalling cascades that lead to increased protein production, intracellular nutrient acquisition and cell proliferation. This process ultimately leads to a decrease in DHT-dependent disruption of follicular protein and nutrient loss and to the maintenance of healthy scalp hair. Laser bio-stimulation energy is delivered to the scalp which in turn opens up the vascular network within the scalp by using a cell signalling process.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Increased Scalp Blood Flow & Microcirculation
Increases Nutrient Supply
Stimulates & Accelerates Hair Growth
Stops Hair Loss Progression
Repairs & Improves Hair Shaft Quality
Reduces The Binding Of Excess Levels Of Skin 5 Alpha Reductase & DHT Which Contribute To Genetic Thinning
Relieves Scalp Conditions Like Psoriasis, Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, Itchy Scalp
Normalizes Sebum Production (Reducing Greasiness)
Reduces Tight, Tender Scalp
Most patients will see full stabilization of hair loss within 3 months and hair regrowth can be seen as early as 6 months. 99% of all patients will stop their progression on hair loss, meaning you are able to achieve stabilization of hair loss. All of these patients will also see fuller, thicker, shinier and healthier hair. Patients should notice a 20% increase in thickness alone within the first 3-5 months of treatment. Upwards of 85% of patients will also see hair re-growth of terminal hairs.
