LED for hair: everything you need to know

Just as LED can bring dull skin to life and give you back your glow, it can also re-invigorate lacklustre hair and restore a healthy shine. Find out more about the benefits of using your Boost device on your hair, and the microneedling salon treatments that will stimulate regrowth.


The hair growth cycle

There are four phases in the hair growth cycle. The first is anagen, the growth phase, when the hair bulb is active and the blood supply is strong. About 90% of your hair follicles are in the anagen phase and can stay that way for two to eight years. The second is catagen, the regression phase, when the blood supply becomes detached from the follicle. The third is telogen, the resting phase, when hair no longer grows. The fourth is exogen, the shedding phase, when the hair falls out.


How to maintain healthy growth

To achieve fuller, healthier hair, and to minimise loss, our goal is to maintain the anagen growth phase and a healthy hair cycle by creating the best possible conditions on your scalp. There are two ways we do this: one is LED therapy, and the other is applying growth factors.


LED as a tool for hair vitality

The precision red 633nm and near-infrared 830nm LED wavelengths used in our salons and devices increase the blood flow in your scalp. This stimulates your hair follicles and improves their metabolism, encouraging re-growth and minimising hair loss. For those with healthy hair cycles, each time a hair is shed, the follicle is already producing a new one to take its place. LED supports this renewal and strengthens the quality of hair in the growth phase. What’s more, light therapy is proven to relieve stress, a common trigger for thinning hair, so you can think of LED as working double time for the benefit of your hair health.

To strengthen your hair and support healthy re-growth, try using your Boost LED Body Patch or Boost LED Collar three to five times each week on the hairline and scalp.


How growth factors work

As well as an LED treatment for hair in our salons, we also offer hair restoration treatments  that combine LED with microneedling and a patented serum complex by CALECIM®, containing stem-cells, ethically sourced from the cord-lining of red deer umbilical cords. Stem-cells are growth factors and proteins which occur naturally in our bodies but which may be depleted for a variety of environmental and genetic reasons. By replenishing them, we are able to kick-start the follicle into a healthy hair cycle. The treatment works by suppressing the inflammation and hormonal cues that trigger follicle cells to die, and stimulating follicle cell growth and hair follicle development, resulting in a reduction in hair breakage and loss.


What to expect from hair microneedling

Our hair microneedling treatments combine LED, nano-dermabrasion and microneedling with CALECIM® Serum for Hair and Scalp Restoration. First, the scalp is cleansed and prepared using our Boost Cleanse and Recovery Spray and a thorough nano-dermabrasion. Then the serum is applied and the scalp is needled at a depth between 0.5mm and 1mm covering the hairline down to the temples, and, if needed, covering the scalp to the crown of the head. Following another serum application, anti-inflammatory LED is used to soothe the skin and stimulate oxygen circulation. You’ll be asked to avoid washing your hair for 24 to 48 hours following the procedure, at which point you can massage the remaining serum into your scalp.

For optimal results, we recommend a course of six treatments, spaced six weeks apart. If you’d like to speak to a therapist for more details, please book a consultation. Alternatively, take a look at our full hair treatment menu and book an appointment.
