HAIRestart™ Treatment at Skin Vitality
Did you know by age 50, approximately 50% of both men and women experience some degree of hair loss? Hair loss can be a difficult and embarrassing condition for both men and women. Until recently, the main interventions were hair transplants and topical creams. These solutions unfortunately result in adverse side effects, long recovery times and strong follow up medications. Skin Vitality is proud to offer two different solutions to combat the stressors of hair loss: Fotona® HAIRestart™ and PRP Hair Restoration.
The Benefits of Fotona® HAIRestart™
Where can HAIRestart® be used?
Fotona® HAIRestart™ for hair growth is a novel treatment which was discovered by accident while the laser was being used for skin rejuvenation. Along the edge of forehead where the hairline starts, patients coming in for Fotona® 4D treatments started regrowing hair! This was very evident in bald men who were receiving this treatment.
The activation of Stem Cells in the dermal papillae of miniaturized hair follicles triggers the hair follicle to form an active hair follicle from the epithelial cells. This leads to new hair formation within the follicle. The end result is prevention of future hair loss and increased hair density and thickness.
The Fotona® 4D can also be applied for skin rejuvenating, but the HAIRestart™ program is specifically designed for use on the scalp.

Learn How HAIRestart® works
HAIRestart™ works by utilizing Fotona® 4D mode to provide controlled, gentle bulk-heating in the scalp to stimulate dormant hair follicles. It also increases blood flow in the scalp and stimulates metabolism, resulting in new hair growth, an increase in hair density and thickness, and the prevention of further hair loss.
Laser thermal pulsing of the scalp activates paracrine signaling pathways inside the skin, resulting with the production of growth factors and new extracellular matrix proteins, which promote tissue regeneration. Activation of Wnt/Beta-Catenin signalling pathway triggers dermal papilla (DP) cells to form hair follicles from epithelial cells. The unique patented feature of Fotona® is the ability to act in a non-ablative manner, producing precisely engineered mild thermal pulses. This ensures that the laser light is delivered to the tissue gently and efficiently, heating the scalp in a safe and controlled pulsed way.
The treatments take about 10 minutes. We recommend 6 treatments every 2 weeks followed by revaluation. We also recommend that a full work-up be done for your hair loss before the treatment to identify any underlying medical reason for your hair loss. Most of our patients combine the Fotona® Laser treatments with oral medications, vitamins, and PRP® Hair Restoration to guarantee the best shot at a successful treatment. Immediately following treatment you may experience some redness or swelling of the scalp that will diminish and should subside within approximately 24 hours.
FAQ's About HAIRestart®
HAIRestart is a safe and painless hair rejuvenation procedure that stimulates hair growth and improves the quality and health of hair. It utilizes Fotona Smooth mode to administer controlled and gentle bulk-heating into the scalp to stimulate dormant hair follicles. It also increases blood flow and stimulates metabolism in the scalp, resulting in new hair growth, increased hair density and thickness, and the prevention of further hair loss.
Each hair restoration treatment session costs approximately $250 and it is recommended to receive 6-10 treatments over two- to four-week intervals.
HAIRestart growth results are effective for at least 6 months following the initial treatment. Maintenance sessions can be attended in six-week intervals or as needed following this period.
The procedure imposes very little discomfort to the patient and no numbing is required.
During the treatment, a laser hand piece is held to the scalp tissue and the system works to deliver wavelengths deep beneath the surface of the scalp to the targeted hair follicles while causing minimal-to-no discomfort. It acts in a non-ablative manner which produces precisely engineered mild thermal pulses. This ensures that the laser light is delivered to the scalp tissue gently and efficiently, heating the skin in a safe and controlled pulsed way. Laser thermal pulsing of the scalp activates paracrine signaling pathways inside the skin, resulting in the production of collagen and new extracelluar matrix proteins that promote tissue regeneration.
Within the first three months, patients will notice that hair shedding has stopped. At the four- to six-month stage, new hair growth in thinning areas will be noticeable.
The HAIRestart treatment is very quick and takes approximately 20-30 minutes with no downtime required post-treatment.
Immediately following the treatment, patients may experience some redness, swelling or flaking of the scalp. These symptoms diminish and subside within a few days of the procedure. Physical activities and sun exposure should be avoided for 24 hours post-treatment, or as recommended by the hair loss specialist, and showering should be postponed until the morning following the procedure.
The HAIRestart treatment growth results are not permanent, and 6-week interval maintenace sessions can be attended as needed.
