Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry J. Perkins announced that he will be offering an Advanced Laser Hair Restoration Treatment at his Santa Barbara Medical Spa – Evolutions. Press Release follows:
SANTA BARBARA, CA., FEBRUARY 25, 2011 – Evolutions Medical Spa Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry J. Perkins introduced a new hair restoration therapy that is non-invasive and non-surgical at their monthly Educational Event. Referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), this is ideal for the person whose hair is thinning, but not completely lost.
Low Level Laser Therapy is a light therapy that penetrates about five to six millimeters into the scalp, releasing energy and causing cellular metabolic changes to existing hair follicles. The stimulation of blood flow and micro-circulation reverses the miniaturization of the hair follicles thus improving hair quality and appearance.
As a person ages their healthy hair cycles begin to diminish, creating miniaturized hair follicles that produce thin, weak hair. Eventually the thin hair exposes the scalp, resulting in a bald look. This happens in both men and women, and although there are many myths about why hair thinning and loss occurs, the reality is that about 95% of hair loss is an inherited genetic condition. Current hair restoration options are surgery (hair transplant), cover ups (wigs and toupees) or prescription formulas (both topical and oral). Now Low Level Laser Therapy can be added to that list.
Low Level Laser Therapy hair restoration is completely painless and does not subject the person to UV radiation. Patients are required to sit under the light two times per week for a duration of 30 minutes. The laser therapy process takes place for about 6 to 12 months, depending on the individual’s response to treatment. Keeping a regular schedule is a key component to seeing results and therefore Evolutions also offers a portable hair restoring laser that can be used at home or when traveling.
This advanced laser hair restoration program is now available at Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara. The package includes both laser therapy and a prescription home-care regimen with FDA-approved hair regrowth products, thus ensuring maximum efficacy.
