Hair Loss Treatment in Ottawa
Hair loss is a condition that affects both men and women of all ages. Hair transplantation and medicated shampoos are the traditional treatments, however, medical advances have brought forward a simpler option for hair restoration.
Our Hair Regrowth Treatment is an effective treatment for both men and women. We use a combination of injections, microneedling and laser hair stimulation to awaken dormant follicles and reactivate hair growth, even after years of baldness.
Our Treatment Methods
Hair Regrowth Injections
This is a proven method that we’ve seen a lot of success with – see more information here!
As a second proven delivery method, a micro-needling pen is used to optimize results by creating micro-trauma on the scalp. At Inovo Medical, we use both Dermapen and the The Beauty Booster. The Beauty Booster has the benefit of 9 tiny needles injecting directly into the scalp with more precision, depth and accurate dosing. It also minimizes the pain and decreases both treatment time and downtime. The results may take several weeks to become apparent, but are amazing: a beautiful set of hair, without the need for hair transplantation.
Before beginning the treatment, our aesthetic professionals will first analyze your scalp to determine whether you are a good candidate. The success of the treatment largely depends on the presence of hair follicles under the scalp, which may disappear after years of baldness.
Laser Hair Stimulation
There are only a few kinds of lasers that have been proven to be effective in the treatment of hair loss. At Inovo Medical, we use two of them: the Nd:YAG laser and the Er:YAG laser.
The laser treatments work in conjunction with our injection treatments to stimulate follicles to produce new hair. The Fotona is one of the most advanced cosmetic lasers in the world and Inovo Medical is the only clinic to have this technology in Ottawa. The Fotona Laser Hair Stimulation treatment has a proven record of effectively working as a solo treatment.
Downtime and side effects
This cosmetic procedure has a low complication rate and is minimally invasive. Additionally, there is little downtime. It is an out-patient procedure, meaning that the procedure only takes a few hours, and you go home the same day. Risks include bruising, soreness, and swelling of the scalp.
Are there any contraindications to the Hair Regrowth Treatment?
We do not recommend this treatment for hair loss caused by scarring. Also, we do not recommend this treatment for women who are either pregnant or breastfeeding, or for people who have a blood condition.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on many factors. We often recommend one every month for the first three months. After this stage, a treatment every six to twelve months for upkeep is best. Results become apparent six weeks after the first treatment. We guarantee noticeable results. Conditions may apply.
Our innovative approach to cosmetic medicine combines a number of medical procedures, many of which are complementary and work synergistically to optimize results and offer the best possible cosmetic outcome.
We view beauty as more than just an outward appearance. It reflects how you feel inside, and in turn affects your confidence, your self-esteem, and your appreciation of life. It also affects your career opportunities, your relationships, and your personal growth.
At INOVO, we offer exceptional medical aesthetic services to improve your skin, and the contours of your face and body, and we treat a variety of skin conditions.
