Popular with both men and women, laser is shown to restore your natural hair, increase blood supply to the by up 54% and stop hair loss in 85% of patients. It works by stimulating the follicles and reducing excess levels of DHT hormones – one of the primary causes of genetic hair thinning. This treatment is a popular option for female pattern baldness as it can be used on permed, dyed and treated hair without affecting the style.

Using mesenchymal stem cells, this treatment actively repairs hair follicles that were once deemed ‘beyond repair’. Used in conjunction with PRP, stem cell therapy has almost chance of causing any form of reaction – due to the fact that it uses your own cells to regenerate your scalp.
