Laser Hair Therapy
Laser hair therapy using a low-level laser is a clinically approved form of treatment both for hair loss and as a follow-up after hair transplant in women and men.
Laser Hair Therapy is an increasingly effective and minimally-invasive treatment option which serves to alleviate some of the fears around hair transplant side effects, long term issues, and costs, by stimulating growth naturally in areas where the hair is thinning.
Laser hair therapy is also an effective healing treatment following hair transplant surgery, helping to boost the healing process by reducing side effects such as swelling after hair transplant, and scarring from hair transplant. As a result, laser hair therapy is one of our top treatments for those seeking a hair transplant as well as those looking for a way to boost their natural hair growth and combat the effects of hair loss and hair thinning.
Laser Hair Therapy
Laser hair therapy is a treatment which supports the restoration of hair, by stimulating hair follicles into growing hair naturally.
The therapy works by applying a low-level laser to the affected areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred. The laser used in laser hair therapy is commonly referred to as a cold laser due to its low invasive nature, stimulating the growth of new hair in areas where the hair is thinning.
But that’s not all. We also use laser therapy as part of the healing process after hair transplant – with the low-level laser boosting the healing process across those regions of the head which have received the transplant. This laser treatment is commonly linked to the reduction of side effects such as swelling and redness.
Low-level laser therapy exposes the skin to a light frequency of around 650nm. The idea is to stimulate the cells in the scalp to produce more protein – thus producing more keratin which is one of the main structural elements of hair. By increasing and strengthening the levels of keratin, the hair is able to grow healthy and strong – making the laser therapy an ideal solution for those who are suffering from hair thinning.
And that’s not all. Low-level laser hair therapy is also responsible for producing higher levels of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This ATP plays a big part in releasing nitric oxide, which is in turn responsible for hair development and growth – giving the whole scalp and the hair follicles a boost of growth and blood circulation.
In short, laser hair therapy runs on two separate branches, one of which helps to prevent hair loss and support the growth of stronger and healthier hair in areas where the hair is thinning, while the other promotes and triggers regrowth of hair.
As part of your treatment, our team will first complete a thorough consultation and assessment to find out what your individual concerns are and the kind of results that you are looking to achieve as part of your treatment. From there, we will work with you to determine if laser hair therapy is right for you, considering the benefits of the treatment and any potential side effects that could occur as part of your lifestyle.
Laser hair therapy is typically required a couple of times every week for the first few months, to both prevent further hair loss and to start stimulating the triggering the regrowth process. Once your hair has reached its desired coverage, we will start to scale back on treatments, likely inviting you back to one session a week. This can continue for as long as you wish to see the results sustained in your hair growth – with many clients requiring some form of long term support from our laser hair therapy team.

FAQs about laser hair treatment
If you have ever tied your hair into a tight ponytail for exercise, plaited it, or created an elaborate hairdo, you will be aware of the pressure and tension that such hairstyles can put on your hairline. When left unaddressed, this tension can gradually turn into a cause of hair loss particularly across the hairline.
Using a low-level laser, this treatment is very safe with no heating effect and a high level of regulation. The laser which is used in the treatment is a compressed light which is emitted from the cold red part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. What this means is that the laser can be concentrated on a specific spot for treatment but without causing damage to the scalp.
Here at Skinoza we are constantly updating our training and treatment procedures and can provide you with more advice and guidance on the safety of certain treatment options. If you have any further questions about the safety of laser hair therapy, please get in touch with one of our team directly.
With no direct side effects, laser hair therapy is a non-invasive and clinically approved, safe procedure for those experiencing hair loss and hair thinning. However, if you are on any medication, please let your treatment therapist or consultant know as some medications can react with laser hair therapy.
One of the main things that clients should consider is the time restraints of laser hair therapy. To be effective, therapy needs to be conducted a few times a week with long term treatments at least once a week for as long as you want the results to last.
Laser hair therapy is non-invasive. As a result, it should not affect your day to day life or routine.
Many of our everyday habits pose a negative impact on our hair, often without us even realising. These include factors like stress, diets, use of hair products, heated styling, and even smoking – all of which can damage the protein fibres in our hair, causing those hairs to become brittle and to cease growing. Aging can be another factors which leads the hair to start becoming brittle, as can disease.
In order to repair those proteins, laser hair therapy stimulates the most damage and weakened follicle units, by increasing blood circulation both to the individual follicles and across the scalp.
Laser hair therapy is currently only being used on the scalp hair growth.
Please note: Laser hair therapy is typically used as a treatment for hair loss from the top of the head and should not be confused with laser hair removal which is a form of beauty treatment used to combat unwanted hair growth around the eyebrows and facial features.
