Low Level Laser Therapy works at the cellular level.
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Today, there are new techniques for improving skin quality and health that don't cause injury or pain. Awaken for Beautiful Hair & Skin is a Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) treatment that uses FDA-approved technology to promote accelerated production of healthy skin and hair. This is an innovative cosmetic treatment that is incredibly safe and effective.
LLLT treatment for hair or skin is performed by directing light upon the scalp or skin. It works by waking cells within the hair follicle from dormancy into an active growth phase, and in skin cells, it accelerates cell growth and improves skin elasticity and appearance. This unique cosmetic treatment utilizes the amazing benefits of light therapy to naturally enhance cellular health. Basically, light energy can change how a cell manages its own metabolism in a positive way. Look inside a cell and you'll find tiny structures called mitochondria which act as the ìpower houseî of the cell. Their function is to take up nutrients and convert them into energy. Mitochondria also generate most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a very important energy source for cell processes. Research begun in the late 1960s showed that enzymes within the mitochondrials energy factory are light sensitive. In fact, particular wavelengths of light will enhance the mitochondrials output of ATP ñ providing more energy for healthy cells. LLLT provides exactly this light energy.
Awaken uses a combination of the two most effective wavelengths -- visible red light and infrared light -- to promote accelerated production of healthy skin and hair. Wavelengths used in the Awaken system are safe for humans, and do not require eye protection. The light in the visible red spectrum stimulates surface cells, opening pores in the skin and increasing blood supply. The infrared light penetrates slightly deeper into the skin layer where hair follicles reside. This promotes the conversion of light energy into energy that can be used by the cell, thus waking dormant hair follicles into an active growth phase, and enhancing skin's natural cellular activity.
Clinical testing on people with hair loss demonstrated the following results:
- Average hair count increase of 93.5 percent.
- 78.9 percent increase in hair strength.
- 90 percent benefited from reduced hair loss, hair regrowth, or both.
- More than 40 percent of participants experienced positive results as early as 6 weeks and the other half between 6 to 12 weeks.
Optimum results with Awaken Laser Therapy are achieved through a consistent treatment schedule. It takes time for the body to respond, and convert energy into new hair and skin. For the resolution of hair loss, one full year of treatment is recommended, according to the following guidelines:
- Months 1 to 4: 1 hr per week
- Months 5 to 8: 1 hr every other week
- Months 9-12: 1 hr per month
Skin therapy is delivered for approximately 20 minutes, once per week, for six months. This is usually delivered by an esthetician as part of a relaxing facial treatment.
Unlike other treatments for hair loss or skin rejuvenation, Awaken Laser Therapy is safe and effective for all skin types and all hair types. So everyone can benefit, because nearly everyone has a hair or skin concern. Most people who choose the cosmetic benefits of Awaken Laser Therapy are seeking a non-medical, non-invasive solution for:
- Alopecia / Pattern Baldness
- Chemotherapy or Chemically-Induced Hair Loss
- Weak and Thinning Hair
- Acne and Rosacea
- Sun-induced Skin Changes
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Low-Level Laser Therapy, as delivered as part of Awaken for Beautiful Hair & Skin, offers a pain-free, scientifically proven method to promote and maintain beautiful hair and skin.
