Introduction to Scalp Stimulation Therap

Done by two ways:

  1. Low level laser therapy
  2. High frequency

Low Level Laser Therapy-

Lasers have long been used in all types of medical specialties, including dermatology. Many have used specific lasers to resurface the skin by creating a wound on the top layer so that new, fresh skin emerges from underneath.

But a new generation of lasers takes a very different-'wound-less'-approach.

LLLT isn't a light source that causes thermal, or heat damage. With LLLT, there is no cutting or burning sensation. Hence they are also called as COLD LASERS.

The relationship between lasers and hair growth was first discovered almost 40 years ago. During the 1960's and 1970's, researchers used low level lasers to evaluate their potential bio-stimulating effects on living tissues. In a surprise finding, during experiments on patients with leg ulcers, doctors observed that the hair follicles which surrounded the area being treated by the low level laser grew new hair.

Laser light stimulates microcirculation, decreases inflammation and improve both cellular metabolism and protein synthesis. LLLT increases blood and lymph circulation at the hair roots and stimulates follicular cells, which may cause hair to grow thicker and stronger.

LaserComb, a hand held device is used as a treatment for 'androgenetic alopecia' (male pattern hair loss). The visible red light from the comb's lasers travel several layers into the tissue without harming the skin and scalp. Because the laser light does not cut or burn the skin, the therapeutic light-energy is absorbed by the cells and the process of cell repair begins. One theory of how this noninvasive, non-chemical hair loss treatment works is that it stimulates the production of energy at the cellular level; therefore, improving cell function.

Low level laser used in the Laser Comb is non-invasive and without any known side effects. 


Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a term adopted by the laser therapy community to surgery. The laser energy produced by the Laser Comb is within the accepted level of LLLT.



  1. Treatment is done on a weekly basis.
  2. On the day of treatment
  3. Apply anti hair loss solution with the help of cotton bud on the areas with thinned hair.
  4. Here we use IPL laser with filter of 690nm under SR (skin rejuvenation) mode.
  5. Keep RF mode off and IPL on 1
  6. Then apply gel on the scalp and give laser shots.
  7. At the end of session wipe off the gel.                                    

High Frequency

  • High frequency current may be applied in 2 ways:
  • Direct high frequency, to give a germicidal effect.
  • Indirect high frequency.

Direct High Frequency

Direct high frequency is an external application which dries, refines and heals the skin. It produces a germicidal effect ozone formation at the skin surface via the glass electrode.

The therapist holds the electrode in contact with the treatment area and gently moves it over the skin. The electrode discharges its high-frequency energy directly into the skin at the point of contact.


Skin type:

  • Mild acne condition
  • Oily areas of combination skin
  • Oily skin


Hair type:

  • Oily scalp
  • Hairfall
  • Dandruff
  • Itching (Pruritis)       

Effect of direct high frequency:



  • Increase circulations.
  • Aids removal of waste products.
  • Increase cellular activity.
  • Increase glandular activity.
  • Aids relaxation
  • Cause dilation of superficial capillaries.


These effects are due to the products of ozone caused by decomposition of oxygen in the area where the electrodes is placed on the skin. The current flows along the electrodes and the high frequency energy is discharged into the skin where the electrode makes contact. When the high frequency current is passed through oxygen, it produces ozone. This occurs between the electrode and the skin and more intensely when the electrode is lifted very slightly off the face to ‘spark’ pustules.


Germicidal effect on tissue.

Improves skin defence against bacteria.

Dries up sebum.

Aids desquamation by general drying effect.



6-8 minutes


Products used:

Boric acid powder, ozone cream, Diprovate/ Rovate/ Flucort solution



  1. Check machine whether it is in good working order and positioned safely on a stable trolley.
  2. Remove jewellery from client and self.
  3. Cleanse skin thoroughly.
  4. Check for contra-indications.
  5. Explain to client the routine procedure, the sensation she will feel, the precautions to be taken during treatment and reassure her about the noise from the machine during treatment.
  6. Make sure the skin is dry. Apply talc or ozone cream to the face and neck to facilitate the movement of electrode, or apply a clean gauze piece on the skin. Wrap a piece of gauze around the electrode.
  7. Place the electrode on the skin before switching on the machine. 

Switch on the machine, increase the intensity gradually .start from zero intensity and place the electrode on the client’s face, increase the intensity upto the client’s tolerance level and move in round circular movements without breaking contact with the skin.

Lower the intensity to zero and switch off the machine. Then remove the electrode from the face.

Remove gauze, talc and continue with other treatments.
