Laser Hair Treatment with the Fractionated Thulium Laser
Laser Hair Rejuvenation is a painless and effective way to create a fuller head of hair through laser therapy to revitalize and nourish hair follicles. Lasers have been used throughout aesthetic medicine for multiple purposes, and are shown to improve blood supply to hair follicles and improve growth factors. To understand how laser hair rejuvenation works, it is important to understand the life cycle of a hair follicle.

The Phases of Hair Growth
PHASE 1 - Anagen (Growth Phase)
The anagen phase is a phase of active growth. The roots are dividing rapidly, adding to the hair shaft. Depending on genetics, this phase can last between 2-7 years and hair grows about 1cm every 28 days. At the end of the anagen phase, the hair goes into the catagen phase.
PHASE 2 - Catagen (Transitional Phase)
A short transitional phase that occurs at the end of the anagen phase which signals the end of active growth. This phase lasts about 2 - 3 weeks, and the hair converts to “club hair”. A club hair is formed when the section of hair follicle that is connected to the lower portion of the hair becomes attached to the hair shaft. This cuts off the blood supply to the hair and the cells that produce new hair. After the club hair is completely formed, the hair follicle enters the telogen phase.
PHASE 3 - Telogen (Resting Phase)
The telogen phase is the final resting phase of the hair follicle.Extreme stress can also subject up to 70% of hair to prematurely entering the telogen phase, resulting in a sudden and considerable loss of hair. Hair does not grow during the telogen phase. These old hair will naturally shed or fall off, whilst combing or washing. The club hair in the telogen stage, is now a dead, fully keratinized hair. At the end of this phase, the new hair follicles re-enters the Anagen phase and new hair begins to grow.
How Laser Hair Treatment works
Laser Hair Rejuvenation is a laser hair treatment that works by inducing the hair follicles to enter the anagen phase. The laser stimulates the scalp and creates growth of thicker, stronger hair than what the hair follicles could naturally generate on their own.
