The health and beauty sector is set to change in 2016 thanks to a serial entrepreneur’s breakthrough invention. Craig Nabat, the CEO at Freedom Laser Therapy, first became famous for his revolutionary quit smoking system. Using drug and nicotine free treatment, he successfully helped thousands of people break their smoking addiction. Now he’s set out to help the 80 million people currently suffering with hair loss.
For the first time, men and women suffering from hair loss can benefit from an at-home, high tech laser treatment. The iRestore Laser Hair Growth system has been designed with in-clinic effectiveness and affordability in mind.
What is iRestore Laser Hair Growth?
The FDA approved iRestore laser hair growth system was launched on January 8th 2016 at the celebrity gifting suite at the Golden Globes. It has also been CE mark certified, enabling the company to sell the treatment to homes across Europe.
It is a low level laser treatment which basically stimulates the scalp and encourages new hair growth. It works via a hands-free device that users wear for 30 minutes, 3 times a week. It needs to be worn on non-consecutive days.
Separation barrels are the key to the devices effectiveness. Each high-output LED is equipped with a separation barrel which works to part any obstructing hairs. A timer alerts the user when to move the device every 10 minutes. It is said to take up to 60 days to see results.
What is low level laser therapy?
Low level laser therapy is often used to treat hair loss in men and women. It can be used to treat pattern balding, genetic hair loss and even androgenetic alopecia. It’s a light treatment also known as soft laser, red light therapy and biostimulation. Red light is emitted into the affected area, helping to prevent a build-up of DHT and releasing nitric oxide from cells, helping to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the roots of the hair.
Experts are divided on whether they think low level laser treatment actually works to restore the hair. Some believe that it has no effect whatsoever, while others believe it works well.
Overall many people have seen success after undergoing low level laser therapy. The new at-home treatment offered by Freedom Laser Therapy is no doubt going to boost its popularity. With no adverse side effects and offering a pain-free solution, this type of therapy can also be used alongside other hair loss treatments to boost their effectiveness and promote wound healing after a hair transplant.
