Laser Hair Regrowth

The Challenge of Hair Loss

Hair loss can significantly impact one’s emotional and psychological state. We commonly see patients who say that their hair loss causes them to begin avoiding social situations, feeling like other people are just as fixated on their hair loss as they are. 

What is HAIRestart® Treatment?

Unlike Low Level Laser Therapy devices that focus on preventing hair loss and maintaining hair density, HAIRestart® with the Fotona™ SMOOTH laser actively stimulates dormant hair follicles. This reactivation is crucial for producing new hair growth, not just preserving existing hair strands.

By targeting the follicles with precise laser energy, HAIRestart® encourages the activation of dormant hair follicles, leading to new hair growth. 

Most Commonly Asked Questions Regarding HAIRestart

  • One of the most appealing aspects of Fotona HAIRestart is that there is no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately after the procedure. Some may experience mild redness or warmth in the treated area, but these symptoms are typically short-lived and resolve within a few hours.
  • Sensation During Treatment: Most describe the sensation as a warm feeling with minimal discomfort. The scalp can handle higher temperatures, which makes the procedure quite bearable.

The entire procedure typically takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Yes, it can be effectively combined with other treatments like PRP or Microneedling, albeit not in the same day. These treatments should be separated a week apart. 

A series of 4 to 6 HAIRestart treatments is recommended to see optimal results. Results can be seen as early as 3 months in, but most often all hair treatments take between 6-12 months to really show their effects.
