A new era of hair restoration, using iGrow’s proprietary Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is here, offering new hope for men and women suffering with thinning, balding and dull hair.
iGrow utilizes 21 lasers and 30 LED lights for the first combination laser light hair restoration system. With over 12 years experience, advanced iGrow technology incorporates physician-grade laser experience into a single portable and hands-free device. LLLT uses therapeutic soft low-light level lasers and broad coverage LED diodes with pure red light at 633-670 nm.
Combination Laser & LED light therapy offers the optimum wavelength and frequency to treat hair loss. iGrow stimulates an increase in micro-circulation of blood supplies in the scalp. This increases cellular metabolism and promotes the repair of damaged cells and weakened hair follicles. Dr. Melamed, a leading specialist in hair restoration, reports using iGrow to stop the progression of hair loss and to stimulate new hair re-growth.
According to a review article published from Harvard Medical School (Hamblin M.R. Mechanisms of Low Level Light Therapy, Photobiology), the effects are based on enhanced cell proliferation, leading to more growth and rapid healing. This same principal is now applied in LLLT in order to repair damaged blood vessels in the scalp by promoting neovascularization, thereby providing hair follicles with the circulation they require. Research indicates that the loss of vascularization and gradual loss of hair can be alleviated by using combination laser and light therapy.
The iGrow hair treatment program uses 51 laser and light diodes positioned in a hands-free device worn on the head. The proximity of the iGrow to the patient’s scalp allows for maximum effectiveness and minimal dispersion of the laser & light energy. Each treatment session is 20 minutes two times a week. The FDA has certified LLLT laser as a class 1 cosmetic device.
iGrow is extremely safe. The laser does not emit ablative energy and is not hot. Hence, there is no risk of injuring the patient’s skin. The treatment does increased blood flow in the scalp, and some patients may experience a transient headache after the first few treatments.
Dr. Melamed recommends his patients to use the iGrow in order to stop the progression of hair loss and to re-grow hair. After 6-8 weeks of regular use (as directed), iGrow will stop the progression of excess hair loss, and stimulate a gradual increase in hair volume, thickness and growth.
Dr. Melamed has also recommend iGrow as a treatment choice in managing androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss), telogen effluvium and menopausal hair thinning. Dr. Melamed reports that 80 percent of patients with androgenetic alopecia report increased hair density, and nearly all patients with telogen effluvium report complete cessation of shedding. Less than 2% of patients using laser hair therapy report a transient headache associated with increased blood-flow.
