Trichology is the para-medical scientific study of the hair, alopecia( hair loss), and associated scalp problems. It encompasses the study of the diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders.
The word “Trichology” comes from the Greek word, ‘Trikhos’, meaning ‘hair’, and was first conceived as a specialty branch of study in Britain in the late 19th century. It then became a specific para-medical discipline in 1902. Today, Trichology is perceived as the “bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.”
'Tricho-Wellness' is a term coined by Dr. Candy Lewis Williams, ND.; meaning "hair-wellness".
She believes your hair and your health are not mutually exclusive. Tricho-Wellness addresses the root causes of thinning with a whole-health approach.
We provide you with education on your present physical health, hair health, hair loss and or scalp disorder then a sound plan of action to repair and rebuild.
Our Tricho-Wellness program is holistic, comprehensive, multi-modality, multi-therapeutic, and far superior to any single hair loss treatment approach. It provides the building materials necessary for your body to manufacture healthy hair, as well as the proper signalers to encourage hair growth.
Tricho-Wellness program might include:
Dr. Candy chats about nutrition for healthy hair growth and tricks for concealing thin areas on the scalp.
Unlike other mammals human hair growth and shedding is random and not seasonal or cyclical.
At any given time, a random number of hairs will be in one of three growth cycles: Anagen, Catagen, or Telogen.
Main stages of hair growth and healthy shedding:

Tricho-LH80 PRO, low laser light technology proven for both men & women in 2 landmark studies.
These latest study showed:
Low level laser hair therapy (LLLT) is a revolutionary, non-surgical breakthrough for both men and women suffering the devastating effects of hair loss. With laser hair therapy, you can achieve thicker, fuller, shinier, and healthier looking hair without harsh glues used in hair systems or the pain endured from transplant surgery.
Low Level Laser Hair Therapy treatment is an effective, non-surgical, drug-free solution for hair loss and thinning hair, delivering light energy directly to the scalp and hair follicles.
Laser Hair Therapy (LHT) is a non-surgical, scientific approach in the cosmetic treatment of hair loss, thinning hair, and scalp problems. LHT has received over 30 years of world-wide testing for effectiveness and safety.
Laser Hair Treatment utilizes low light level lasers, delivering light energy directly to the scalp providing nutrients and energy to the hair follicle root. Functioning on the same scientific principle as that of photo-bio-stimulation; laser light stimulates cell metabolism and helps damaged cells to repair themselves.
The Laser was first used in Eastern Europe about 25 year ago to speed up the healing process of diseased individuals. Since the late 1700s, scientific studies have shown that sunlight- or the lack of it - definitely affects our body's biochemistry.
Light also affects our hair, including how fast it grows. We have all experienced how our hair grows quicker during the summer, and this increased growth is due to improved blood supply to the hair follicles stimulated by the red light in sunlight.
Is it safe?
This is one of the first questions many people have. The answer is absolutely. Laser therapy has been used successfully for more than 30 years to treat a broad spectrum of medical conditions. This therapy has no side effects and is both painless and non-toxic. The type of laser light used in low level laser therapy (LLLT) meets all international safety standards and legislative specifications of a “non-significant risk” product, and is classified as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser.
Is the treatment painful?
There is absolutely no pain.
Are there any side effects?
Laser therapy does not cut, burn, or harm the skin in any way. Unlike pharmaceutical preparations, laser therapy has no known side effects. Photo-medicine or laser therapy provides proper therapeutic treatment without unwanted and dangerous side effects.
Who is a good candidate for Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy is for all men and women who want to improve weak thinning hair. It is however important to note, with any therapy early intervention is very important.
What should I expect?
Hair re-growth generally can be expected to begin somewhere between the 4th and 6th month. Many may experience thicker and healthier hair as first signs of improvement. However, we notice better and faster results with clients using our evidence-based and clinically proven, Tricho-Wellness Program. This program includes:
How long is each treatment and how soon will I see results?
Laser treatment sessions typically last 20-30 minutes.
Laser Hair Therapy has been found to work for clients with a variety of hair loss and scalp conditions, including male and female pattern hair loss, alopecia, chemical damage, eczema, seborrhea, hormonal changes, certain medications and diet or stress factors.

The Lotus Concept’s Tricho-LH80 PRO laser diode helmet provides clinical strength laser technology for safe, effective hair restoration at home.
The hands-free operation allows the user to move about freely during treatments. This treatment option is perfect for someone with a hectic schedule or someone who can’t make it into a clinic for weekly treatments.
Tricho-LH80 PRO diode laser helmet uses specially developed, high efficiency lasers that deliver the maximum amount of light and cover 582 cm2 of the 720 cm2 total scalp area in the average human head.
Tricho-LH80 PRO 80 diode laser helmet reverses the miniaturization of follicles. Follicles return to their normal healthy state after being exposed to our special lasers.
Reversing miniaturization is the first step to getting your hair back. The next stage is re-growing your hair.
The Lotus Concept’s Tricho-LH80 PRO tackles the three critical areas needed to beat hair loss:
How Does the Tricho-LH80 Pro Work?
Tricho-LH80 PRO brings you the world’s most advanced technology to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
Unlike Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) devices, our laser light targets the stem cells at the base of hair follicles. This allows the formation of a new photonic pathway that can restore hair to a healthy state. Our laser helmet was engineered based on four crucial scientific criteria, which together provide the most powerful and efficacious laser hair growth therapy out on the market.
Effective, Coherent Lasers
Only lasers produce coherent light, meaning their light waves are aligned and traveling in synchronicity. Laser light is needed to penetrate the scalp at a depth of 3 – 5 mm and reach the base of a hair follicle. No other light source (i.e. – LEDs) can achieve this. By treating the base of hair follicles, our proprietary cold laser technology ensures the mitochondria of hair cells is stimulated. The mitochondria then produce cell energy that is harnessed by hair follicles.
The Power of Red Light
Penetrating a treatment area at the appropriate depth with subsequent energy absorption is crucial for the success of Laser Phototherapy (LPT). Different wavelengths of light will result in distinct laser energies, which enter human tissue at various depths. However, hair follicles can only absorb coherent laser light at a wavelength of 678 ± 8 nanometers (nm). The Lotus Concept’s Tricho-LH80 PRO 80 proprietary lasers harness the power of red light at an optimized wavelength of 678 nm, which is ideal for clinical strength hair rejuvenation.
Optimal Energy Dosage
Just like a medicine dose, a high quality LPT device should ensure hair is treated with the correct energy dosage – otherwise treatment will be ineffective. According to the Swedish Laser Medical Society, delivering an optimal energy density to the scalp during treatment will trigger proper cellular response of hair follicles for hair restoration. The Lotus Concept’s Tricho-LH80 PRO laser helmet strictly adheres by these guidelines, hence ensuring strong therapeutic effects that improve the density, health, and overall quality of your hair while accelerating its growth.
Maximum Therapy with Minimal Time
With our potent coherent laser light, our 678-nm wavelength optimized for hair growth, our ideal energy density and our full-coverage scalp design, The Lotus Concept’s Tricho-LH80 PRO is fully armed to rejuvenate your hair. A treatment time of 20 minutes, will ensure laser light reaches the base of your hair follicles with the required energy dosage. Anything less than 20 minutes will fall short of an optimal energy density, which will in consequence not reach the base of a hair follicle and fail to induce stimulation.
