CRLABS instruments are designed to enhance the high efficacy of our trichological products.
They are used here at Hairlab Chicago, exclusive center of Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories.
CRLAB Steamer machine that releases ozone in the vapor. The warm vapor emitted from the steamer is useful to open pores freeing the scalp from toxins while allowing the penetration of the products. The ozone released acts as an antibacterial agent for the scalp.
This CRLAB machine produces a targeted mechanical massage to the scalp. It enhances skin elasticity, stimulates microcirculation and helps spread the CRLAB trichology products on the scalp.
The biological and physiological interactions affecting the effects produced by exposure to light rays are:
• Calcium metabolism and vitamin D
• Production of melanin
• Adjustment of the sleep-wake rhythm
• Maintenance of body temperature
• Action on some biological mechanisms that affect mood
What is it for?
Increase cell metabolism:
Laser therapy is able to increase blood flow and microcirculation to the scalp. Local vasculature is essential for the correct stimulation of the pilose-sebaceous follicle and the development of its physiological functions.
The increase in blood flow induced by laser therapy in the tissues involved, therefore, facilitates the transport of the fundamental nutrients inside the follicle (ensuring the right amount of it) and, at the same time, it takes away harmful degradation products, such as DHT (dihydrotestosterone, primary responsible for thinning and subsequent hair loss). This can result in a correct and substantial growth of the hair.
The improvement in microcirculation is therefore related to an increase in cellular metabolism. Once emitted from the device, the laser hits the tissue to be treated and the light is absorbed by the various cells that compose it, causing an increase in their activity. The energy of laser light is initially stored in the mitochondria and is then used to produce new ATP (adenosine triphosphate) molecules.
Increase the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP):
Another important beneficial effect of laser therapy against hair loss is precisely to promote the production of ATP, which plays a key role in numerous metabolic processes. Adenosine triphosphate is synonymous with energy, so it is clear that the more it will be in circulation, the more it will be used to encourage all the fundamental metabolic processes, such as the synthesis of DNA and all the other molecules necessary for the normal life cycle of hair.
At the level of the pilose-sebaceous follicle, the cells most influenced by this mechanism of laser therapy addressed to the scalp are those of the epithelial matrix. In more practical terms, the follicle is supplied with energy to increase its cellular activity and produce healthier hair. In alopecia cases, laser therapy invigorates the hair follicle, prevents further loss and stimulates hair regrowth.
Increase the production of growth factors and cytokines:
Laser therapy applied to the scalp can accelerate mitosis (thus causing a strong increase in cell proliferation), inducing transcription factors and stimulating the stem cells of the pilosebaceous follicle.
In a certain sense, laser therapy may reverse the apoptosis process of the hair follicle (i.e. programmed cell death), thus avoiding further hair loss. As a result, treated hair may be thickened, as well as appear stronger and robust.
Modulate inflammatory processes:
Another aspect that could play a significant role in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia is the ability of laser therapy to promote the resolution of perifollicular inflammation, which almost always accompanies hair loss. This is possible due to the modulation of the processes underlying inflammation and immunological responses that may have an effect on hair growth. This effect can be beneficial in preventing or reducing fibrosis (and subsequent damage) of follicles in cases of androgenetic alopecia, especially if associated with sebum hypersecretion with inflammatory reactions.
Tricoglam is based on PHOTOTHERAPY.
Numerous studies and direct experiences have stated that “Lower Level Light Therapy” is the only scientific, effective phototherapy to combat thinning and hair loss. Takes care of the skin and scalp.
The energetic properties of light are the basis of the LLLT. The only truly efficient light is in a range of wavelengths from 650 nm to 900 nm, i.e. red and infrared lights. The new TRICOGLAM PROFESSIONAL combines the therapeutic effects of red and infrared light with the antibacterial properties of light close to ultraviolet and Laser.
TRICOGLAM is the device composed of:
• FOUR different types of diodes
• Diodes positioned and tested in their position to stimulate the entire area of the affected scalp well
• 309 total diodes between Laser and LED (15 Laser and 300 LEDs)
LED and Laser will work for an optimal and total coverage of the entire scalp.
