New laser tech­nol­ogy stops the pro­gres­sion of hair loss and pro­motes re­growth

Burling­ton clinic one of the few places to of­fer the state-of-the-art Il­lu­mi­wave™

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

It’s a fact: 40 per cent of men have no­tice­able hair loss by age 35, and 65 per cent have lost hair by the age of 60. And men aren’t the only ones who suffer: fe­male pat­tern bald­ness, and cer­tainly the con­di­tion of thin­ning hair, is among the ma­jor aes­thetic con­cerns of pre- and post­menopausal women.

The cause is sim­ple: as we age, and as hor­mone lev­els fluc­tu­ate, blood sup­ply within the scalp to the hair fol­li­cle be­comes in­creas­ingly lim­ited. As blood flow to the fol­li­cle is re­duced, the hair be­gins to weaken and can even­tu­ally die. To stop this re­gres­sion, the fol­li­cle re­quires in­creased blood flow car­ry­ing pro­teins and nu­tri­ents.

Un­til now, the only two op­tions for peo­ple who want to do some­thing about their thin­ning hair have been trans­plant surgery, which is ex­tremely ex­pen­sive and may or may not look nat­u­ral when com­pleted, and drugs, which of­fer a myr­iad of some­times dan­ger­ous and/or painful side ef­fects, and no guar­an­tee of suc­cess.

But now there is an­other op­tion. It’s not a cure for bald­ness, but this new tech­nol­ogy,

Laser Bio Stim­u­la­tion, is mak­ing head­lines in the on­go­ing bat­tle against thin­ning hair.

This pro­ce­dure, de­liv­ered via the il­lu­mi­Wave™, has been gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity south of the bor­der, and Ad­vanced Re­ju­ve­na­tion Med­i­cal Spa, lo­cated at 425 Lo­cust Street in down­town Burling­ton, is now pleased to of­fer the treat­ment to clients.

For Bill, an ex­tremely sat­is­fied client, Laser Bio Stim­u­la­tion has com­pletely trans­formed his life.

“I used to feel re­ally self-con­scious about my hair loss and felt like ev­ery­one could see my scalp through my hair. I started the Il­lu­mi­wave treat­ments and within a few weeks, I could see a dif­fer­ence.”

“My hair looks much thicker and fuller,” he says. “My hair dresser claims you have done a great job on my hair. It’s com­ing back very well.”

Most im­por­tantly, the treat­ment has had pos­i­tive re­sults on his over­all well­be­ing.

“My whole fam­ily has no­ticed the change in my hair; also the change in me.”

For Eric, be­ing in his late twen­ties and un­der­go­ing the treat­ment, it was more of a pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sure.

“Af­ter four months my hair thick­ness and growth has got­ten back to a stage of where it was in my late teens and early 20’s. It is never too early to start, you will be glad you did.”

Dr. Rose Jeans has owned and op­er­ated Ad­vanced Re­ju­ve­na­tion for the past six years.

“When I heard about the po­ten­tial for this tech­nol­ogy to im­prove the qual­ity, thick­ness and healthy ap­pear­ance of thin­ning hair, I jumped on the op­por­tu­nity right away.”

The process of Laser BioS­tim­u­la­tion is sim­ple, and when com­pared to the cost of a qual­ity trans­plant, very af­ford­able. Clients sim­ply sit com­fort­ably un­der a laser de­liv­er­ing low-level ther­apy for 20 min­utes per ses­sion. As the ses­sions progress, the stim­u­la­tion helps cells re­gen­er­ate into newer health­ier cells. The pro­teins and nu­tri­ents found in the new cells help feed the hair fol­li­cle through the scalp’s blood sup­ply.

It can take from be­tween three to eight months for re­sults to be no­tice­able. Hair loss gen­er­ally stops within the first three months of use, and any new hair growth be­gins in the sec­ond three months.

“With the in­creased nour­ish­ment pro­vided to the fol­li­cle, your chances to in­crease the num­ber of hairs on the scalp im­prove the healthy ap­pear­ance, thick­ness and over­all qual­ity of the hair fol­li­cle also in­crease greatly,” Dr. Jeans ex­plains. “It’s a time com­mit­ment. Stud­ies show that the more fre­quently you use the ma­chine – ev­ery few days is ideal – the bet­ter the re­sults will be.”

“We gen­er­ally rec­om­mend a 52- week pro­to­col, with two ses­sions a week for eight weeks, one ses­sion a week for 16 weeks, and then bi­weekly ses­sions for six months,” she adds.

Jeans is also quick to stress that this tech­nol­ogy will not work for ev­ery client. “If there is com­plete bald­ness, mean­ing no hair fol­li­cle left at all, the pro­ce­dure can not grow hair. This tech­nol­ogy will ben­e­fit only those small, weak hairs that still have a liv­ing fol­li­cle.”

Dr. Jeans con­ducts a rig­or­ous com­pli­men­tary con­sul­ta­tion with clients be­fore de­ter­min­ing if they are can­di­dates for the Il­lu­mi­Wave™.
