How It Works
Hair Restoration Therapy is offered in two levels.
1.Comprehensive Health Review
Our in-depth comprehensive health assessment looks for possible root causes of your hair loss struggles such as nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and disease.
During your review, our family practitioner performs an in depth analysis of your current state of health; this includes a thorough look into your hair, scalp, nails, and skin, as well as your current protein and vitamin levels**. Through screening for conditions such as an overactive or under-active thyroid, essential mineral and protein deficiencies, a sluggish or compromised immune system, and any hormonal imbalances, we are able to better understand why you are losing hair and support hair loss prevention over time. Essentially, the results of your comprehensive assessment help us create a customized treatment plan to help prolong the effects of our Hair Restoration Therapy.

2. Stress Analysis (Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Test)
The HRV test helps to measure your risk for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and immune disorders; providing a powerful snapshot into your current health condition. Through revealing how your body reacts to stress, and how your autonomic nervous system (heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, metabolism, etc.) has been affected over time, we are able to further identify any additional factors that could be relating to your hair loss struggles.
3. LED Cap Therapy
We incorporate the Capillus LED Cap into our HRT treatment because low level light therapy is great for regrowth and wound healing. Its regenerative and fortifying properties make it an important step before and after platelet rich plasma injections. This step is offered in clinic.
4. Platelet-Rich-Plasma – PRP for Hair Growth
A simple non-surgical treatment that involves extracting platelet rich plasma (containing at least seven different growth factors that stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate scalp tissues) from the patient’s own blood, and injecting it into the scalp to improve hair density, follicle health and slow the signs of hair loss and thinning.
PRP is extracted from the patient’s own blood and a result of this, there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions or side effects. At Vancouver Laser Skin Care Centre, we use the WorldPRP™ system. This system has been proven to contain the highest quality of viable platelets resulting in three times more PRP with unrivaled purity.
5. Supplement Recommendations
Based on the results of your Comprehensive Health Review, our family practitioner will prescribe a list of supplements to help treat any nutrient deficiencies, and improve your overall health in order to support your hair loss restoration journey. These supplements will be available for purchase in a ‘take home kit’, or can be purchased elsewhere at the patient’s own discretion.
Level 2 includes all the steps in Level 1, with the addition of in-clinic international testing, and prescribed supplement medication.
1.Comprehensive Health Review
2. Stress Analysis (HRV)
3.Comprehensive Oxidative Stress Assessment
This assessment helps determine the presence of excess free radicals (like rust) inside your body. These excess free radicals can lead to cancer and many chronic degenerative diseases and can also contribute to an unhealthy aging process.
This test helps to determine your body’s reserve levels of important vitamins and cofactors; as insufficient levels often contribute to chronic fatigue, poor immune function, degenerative diseases and premature aging
5. LED Cap Therapy
6.Platelet-Rich-Plasma – PRP for Hair Growth
We include a Glutathione Injection into our treatment because it contains powerful antioxidants that help improve immune function and fight disease, while detoxifying and releasing oxidative stress.
8. Prescribed Supplement Medication
Based on the results of your Comprehensive Health Review, our family practitioner will prescribe a 3 month supply of customized supplements to help address any nutritional deficiencies, and help to improve your overall health in order to support your hair loss restoration journey.
