Fotona Laser in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX
The Fotona laser is an effective hair restoration system with little to no downtime required. If you are struggling with thinning hair or hair loss, you may want to consider Fotona laser treatments for hair restoration. Hopkins Dermatology offers this advanced solution to the residents living in and around Alexandria, Shreveport and Monroe, LA.
What is the Fotona Laser?
The Fotona laser is a gentle laser treatment that stimulates dormant hair follicles to restore natural hair growth. This process is known as the ScalpLase treatment. With the Fotona laser, we apply low energy light to the scalp, which stimulates blood flow and reactivates hair follicles that aren’t currently producing hair. As a result, the ScalpLase treatment can actually restore natural hair growth without any surgery, downtime or discomfort.
The results from the ScalpLase treatment can be further enhanced by combining treatment with PRP therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy. PRP also stimulates natural hair growth by introducing growth factors to the scalp. The ScalpLase treatment can further activate these growth factors for greater hair restoration benefits.
How Much Does the ScalpLase Treatment Cost?
The cost of ScalpLaser treatments will vary by patient, as techniques involved and the number of treatments may change based on a patient’s needs. During your consultation, we will develop your personalized ScalpLase treatment plan and provide you with detailed pricing information.
What are the Benefits of ScalpLase?
ScalpLase provides many significant benefits as a hair restoration treatment, including:
- Little to no downtime
- Stimulates natural hair growth
- Comfortable treatment with no numbing required
- Brief, 30-minute procedure
What is the ScalpLase Treatment Like?
The ScalpLase treatment with the Fotona laser is a comfortable treatment that requires no numbing or anesthetics. During treatment, the Fotona laser device will be used to deliver gentle laser energy to the scalp, stimulating blood flow and activating dormant hair follicles. You may feel a warm sensation during this process, but it is generally well-tolerated by patients. The treatment takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
What is Recovery Like After ScalpLase?
After ScalpLase, you may experience some redness in the scalp for about 24 hours, as well as some minor tightness or swelling. While these symptoms heal, we recommend avoiding exercise and showering for the first 24 hours. After this time, you can resume all normal activities, but should continue to protect the scalp from sun exposure as the skin will be vulnerable to sun damage for several weeks.
When Will I See Results from ScalpLase?
After reactivating dormant hair follicles and stimulating natural hair growth, the ScalpLase produces results that are visible within a few months of treatment. However, keep in mind that we often recommend a series of 6 to 10 treatments for optimal results. We may also recommend combining ScalpLase with PRP for enhanced benefits.
Am I A Good Candidate for ScalpLase?
The ScalpLase treatment is safe for all hair and skin types, so if you are struggling with hair loss and are looking for a non-invasive solution, you may be a good candidate for ScalpLase treatments. The best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation with the team at Hopkins Dermatology. We’ll evaluate your goals and symptoms to determine if you are a good fit for treatment before providing you with a customized ScalpLase treatment plan.
