Laser Hair Therapy
Low level laser therapy, LLLT, is an effective treatment for most forms of hair loss, including male and female pattern baldness.
Laser hair therapy is a process of non-surgical hair treatment which consists of exercising low level light lasers directly to the scalp. LLLT is absorbed into the cells which triggers cellular activity and an increase of blood supply to the hair follicles which allows more nutrients to be absorbed and encourages tissue regeneration.
Laser hair regrowth therapy is painless and the session takes about 25 minutes. Repeat treatments are required weekly for approximately 6 months, depending on the extent of hair loss.
Vitamin Infusion Therapy
Vitamin infusion therapy is a method of administering vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous drip.
Vitamins deficiency can have a significant impact on hair loss as other parts of the body are prioritised.
As the vitamins are passed directly into the blood stream, 100% is absorbed as opposed to 10% with vitamin tablets. Patients often report an almost immediate positive effect on their well being.
High Frequency Treatment
High-frequency scalp treatment for hair growth is a hair treatment that makes use of low-current and high-frequency to the scalp which stimulates dormant hair follicles to encourage hair growth by increasing blood circulation.
Two sessions a week are recommended for a minimum of 6 weeks which should see results in hair growth. Ongoing maintenance is required after this but no as frequent depending upon the hair growth requirements and the effectiveness of the treatment on the patient.
Prescription & Over-the-Counter Drugs
Minoxidil is an over the counter medication that reactivates and revitalises shrunken hair follicles by increasing their size. With continued applications, the follicles gain greater volume so that longer and thicker hairs are produced.
The Wimpole Clinic can also provide prescription drugs for hair loss and recommend a suitable treatment from our in house Trichologist during a consultation. Please call or email for further details.
