People hide their thinning hair by wearing baseball caps to barbecues or football helmets to family portrait shoots. Let your noggin breathe freely with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get three months of laser hair-regrowth treatments at Images International in Bingham Farms (a $1,008 value).
All of the stylists at Images International enroll in yearly training sessions to brush up on the latest advances in hair restoration. It's there that they learn about such high-tech treatments as low-level laser hair therapy, an option best suited for clients just beginning to notice hair loss. The treatment situates scarce hair fields and fraying brillo pads under the glow of a cold laser for 30 minutes at a time. Cells on the scalp absorb the resulting energy, which revs their metabolism and, in turn, helps them slowly repair and regenerate themselves. This reaction jolts head-based circulation, and the fortification of fresh blood inspires hair to grow without the discomfort of wearing a bicycle helmet lined with pictures of Fabio. Patients must attend sessions twice weekly in order to see thicker, fuller hair at the end of their three-month regimens.
Not only does Images International cut hair, it also grows it. The LaserTek 9000 Hair Therapy laser emits low-level light, causing a chain reaction of cell repair. This microscopic round of dominoes eventually leads to hair regrowth, and Image International's team of tight-knit technicians has revitalized dozens of scalps on both men and women. Once clients have thicker heads of hair, stylists can cut it into chic styles and use the trimmings to make friendship bracelets. The salon's other treatments for hair loss include permagraphs, prostheses, and professional wigs customized to each scalp.
