Hair loss in men and women can result from any or all factors including hormonal, chemical and systematic changes in the body.
Pattern Baldness or Androgenic alopecia (AGA) can occur for both Men and Women and it is when hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples. Hair also thins at the crown of the head. Often a rim of hair around the sides and rear of the head is left, or the condition may progress to complete baldness.
The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.
Caused by a by-product of testosterone known as DHT which is produced in high quantities by the enzyme 5-alphareductase in the scalp. The binding of DHT to the genetically predisposed hair follicle results in gradual miniaturisation and eventual deterioration of the hair follicle. This is reported to be the cause of 85% of hair loss.
The LEIMO Personal Hair Laser Starter Kit is extremely effective because it works by targeting the Cause (eg DHT in the Scalp) and the Effect (eg Miniaturisation of the Follicle) in three easy steps. The Leimo system has also been effective for customers who have lost hair through pregnancy, menopause and previous chemotherapy.
The LEIMO solution treats people with mild to moderate APA and LEIMO is not suitable for severe Androgenic Alopecia or other forms of Hair Loss such as Alopecia Aareata, Telogen effluvium and Cicatricial Alopecia. Healthy hair is possible with an every day commitment to using the natural range of Leimo hair and scalp products. Prevention is always better than Cure. The earlier you start looking after your hair and scalp the greater chance you have of keeping your hair healthier and longer.
Step 1 – The LEIMO Bio Cleansing Shampoo and LEIMO Thickening Conditioner cleanse and condition the hair follicle and hair shaft. To further exfoliate and deep clease the scalp use the LEIMO Scalp Scrub.
Step 2 – The LEIMO Scalp Therapy and LEIMO Scalp Serum vasodilates the blood vessels of the follicle and inhibits the formation of DHT in the follicle.
Step 3 – The LEIMO Personal Hair Laser delivers Photo Therapy to stimulate the hair follicle and promote Hair Regrowth. The LEIMO Personal Hair Laser is included on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods as a Class IIa medical device with the intended purpose of Hair Follicle stimulation and Hair Regrowth.
