If you are experiencing hair loss, you know just how frustrating and embarrassing it can be. However, you are not alone; hair loss is a common condition that affects over 80 million Americans. While hair loss and balding is often thought to be a condition that predominantly affects men, 40% of those affected by hair loss are women.

Hair Loss in Women

Approximately 50% of women will experience hair loss in their lifetime. Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is the most common cause of hair loss in women and mainly affects the hair at the very top of the head and along the part. Women typically experience hair loss postpartum, during menopause and due to other hormonal changes. Some women are genetically predisposed to develop hair loss, especially after the age of 40.

Hair Loss in Men

It’s estimated that 85% of men will experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 50. Male pattern baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia) is the most common type of hair loss in men. It typically develops as a receding hairline above the forehead and thinning hair on the very top of the head. Androgenic alopecia is generally a result of genetics and hormonal changes.

How to Restore Fuller, Thicker Hair

Fortunately, there are ways to restore fuller, thicker hair for men and women. At Broward ENT & Aesthetics, our dynamic system utilizes laser energy for safe, predictable and natural hair restoration results.

How Does Laser Hair Restoration Work?

Precise laser pulses in a unique configuration are delivered to the scalp (or other area of hair loss) with our laser hair restoration device. This ensures controlled delivery of the thermal pulses for gentle heating and optimal efficiency and safety. By combining Nd:YAG and Er:YAG wavelengths, this advanced hair restoration technology effectively reaches the deepest layers of the scalp and hair follicles.

The laser energy increases blood flow to the area and activates dormant hair follicles to begin the natural healing process, stimulating hair growth. The laser energy also causes new blood vessels to form in the area (a process called ​​neoangiogenesis), creating a conducive environment for healthy hair growth. The diameter of each hair increases, resulting in increased hair density and thickness.

Activating the Hair Growth Cycle

There are three phases to hair growth:

  1. Anagen (growth phrase)
  2. Catagen (regression phase)
  3. Telogen (rest phase)

Laser hair restoration stimulates the active growth stage of the hair cycle (anagen). The hairs then continue cycling through the natural phases of hair growth.

Will I Need Downtime After Laser Hair Restoration?

No downtime is needed after your hair restoration session; you can continue with your daily activities straight from treatment.

What Results Can I Expect From Laser Hair Restoration?

Laser hair restoration offers restored hair growth for natural yet noticeable results. This treatment is clinically proven to restore natural hair growth in just a few short treatments. It also has the benefit of preventing further hair loss.
