Australia's #1 Hair Loss Treatment. Leimo Hair Regeneration System

FAQ's

  • 1. What causes hair loss?

    Hair loss in men and women results from hormonal, chemical and systemic changes in the body. For example, Pattern Baldness (Male and Female) results from a by-product of testosterone known as Dihydrotestosterone (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 resulting to hair loss. This is reported to be the cause of 85% of hair loss.

  • 3. How does the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Treatment Starter Kit prevent hair loss?

    The Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Starter Kit prevents hair loss by BLOCKING the Cause (DHT in the scalp) and REVERSING the Effect (miniaturisation of the follicle). The Leimo® shampoo and conditioner cleanses and conditions the hair follicle and hair shaft. The scalp therapy and scalp serum vasodilates the blood vessels of the follicle and inhibits the formation of DHT in the follicle. The Leimo® Personal Hair Laser provides phototherapy to stimulate the hair follicle, promote hair regrowth and prevents hair loss.

  • 4. What is the 12-Month Money Back Guarantee and how does it work with the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Treatment Starter Kit?

  • 5. How does the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser work?

    The Leimo® Personal Hair Laser uses Low Level Laser Therapy to create a process known as Photobiostimulation. Photobiostimulation provides stimulus to the hair follicle by increasing the cells’ available energy which results in hair regrowth, healthier hair follicles and prevention of further hair loss.

  • 6. Don't lasers remove hair?

    There are two “types” of Lasers – COLD and HOT beam lasers. Hot Beam is used for destructive purposes – such as hair removal, whereas COLD Beam is used for Therapeutic purposes which stimulate cells, rather than destroying them. Leimo® uses COLD beam laser technology. Our laser falls within the international guidelines and specification for a COLD BEAM Low Level Laser Therapy device.

  • 7. What kind of results should I expect using the Leimo® system?

    Within 2 – 3 months, you will start to notice a difference in how your hair looks and feels. Your revitalised hair will make your hair look fuller and denser. With continued use, your hair quality will continue to improve and stay healthy. The important thing is not to “look” for hair regrowth on a daily basis, all this does is add concern to your condition. One way to check your progress is to take photographs of your hair on a monthly basis. Either you or a friend or partner can do this for you. Rest assured this will show progress and remember hair does not grow faster under treatment – you will not see appreciable differences from day to day.

  • 8. Why is it important to use the Leimo® scalp therapy and serum?

    The Leimo® scalp therapy and serum the major components of the treatment to block the main cause of hair loss by inhibiting DHT on the scalp.

  • 9. Do I need to use the Leimo® shampoo and conditioner every day?

    The Leimo® shampoo and conditioner have been specifically formulated for everyday use. We encourage a clean scalp to be maintained as this helps to remove the harmful effects of DHT from the scalp and enhances the effectiveness of the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser by reducing material build-up on the laser window. Please note, it is very important to use the Leimo® conditioner along with the Leimo® shampoo as part of your daily routine.

  • 10. What is the difference between the active foaming agent in the Leimo® shampoo and what others use?

    The Leimo® shampoo uses a naturally derived foaming agent (Sodium Laureth Sulfate – SLES) which has little or no irritations and allergies. Other manufacturers use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate SLS which is a synthetic foaming agent and can often cause skin irritations and allergies. The foaming agent used in the Leimo® shampoo is sourced from Coconut and Palm Tree extracts.

  • 11. What is the Leimo® Scalp Serum Night Treatment and how will it help stop my hair loss?

    The Leimo® Scalp Serum Night Treatment is a topical formula made of natural active ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be the most potent anti-DHT compounds known today. It works by decreasing the levels of DHT in the scalp. This allows the hair follicles to rejuvenate and produce thicker and stronger hair, creating a fuller and healthier head of hair.

  • 12. What is the Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment and how will it help stop my hair loss?

    The Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment is used in conjunction with the Leimo® Hair Regrowth system and provides an all-natural alternative to Minoxidil – (Rogain or HairAgain). The non-medicated Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment provides a natural form of vasodilatation which is a process by which blood vessels in the hair follicle become wider following the relaxation of the smooth muscle in the vessel wall. This will increase blood flow to the hair follicle which helps to assist hair follicle health and eventually stop hair loss.

  • 15. Does Leimo® work as well for women’s hair loss as it does for men?

    Yes, and we have many satisfied women customers. In most cases, the cause of hair loss in women is the same as in men. Many women develop thinning hair and hair loss due to the same reasons as men who suffer from Pattern Baldness.

  • 16. Can I use other hair care products or colour my hair while using the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Treatment Starter Kit (Unisex/For Her)?

    Yes. You can use any other hair care products as you want, including hair colours and styling gels.

  • 17. I recently had hair transplants, can I use Leimo®?

    Yes. Although the transplanted hair is theoretically resistant to the destructive effects of DHT, the hair follicles surrounding the transplanted area may still be genetically susceptible to DHT. If these hair follicles are not protected they will eventually be lost, resulting in further hair loss and additional transplants.

  • 18. How long will I have to use the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser for?

    Laser Therapy should be maintained everyday (10 mins per day or 60 to 70 mins per week) for the first year – this will ensure the maximum Laser Therapy results be delivered to your hair follicles. After this period, Laser therapy then can be used in a preventative maintenance mode (i.e. 2 – 3 times a week).

  • 19. Can I use the Leimo® Laser more than 10 min per day?

    No – only in circumstances where you have missed one or two days in the week period. Remember the maximum recommended stimulation per week is 70 minutes. Therefore if you missed 1 or 2 days worth of treatment, you can catch up by using the laser 20 – 30 mins in one session.

  • 20. Do I have to leave the Leimo® Laser turned On all the time?

    The Leimo® Personal Hair Laser uses a cordless battery charging system that requires trickle charge technology to maintain the battery. If the battery in the Laser is depleted consistently, long term battery life damage will occur. When not in use, the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser should be kept in the cradle with power supplied to the laser unit.

  • 21. How long will I have to use the Leimo® hair and scalp care products (Leimo® Bio Cleansing Shampoo, Thickening Conditioner, Scalp Therapy Day Treatment, Scalp Serum Night Treatment and Deep Cleansing Scalp & Body Scrub) to stop my hair loss?

    DHT will start to reform as soon as you stop using the Leimo® products, so using them should be a daily activity.

  • 22. What happens if I stop using the Leimo® system?

    Without proper Photobiostimulation and DHT blocking, your hair will eventually return to its normal state of entropy. Hair loss will occur if you do not make efforts to prevent its return. You must continue to maintain your hair treatment through the use of the Leimo® system.

  • 23. Do I need to use all of the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser treatment Starter Kit products?

    All the components of the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Starter Kit are recommended for a holistic approach to stop your hair loss and in regrowing you hair. Of course, each product will individually produce results, however when all the products are used together – the best results are obtained. Your hair is important – so give it the best chance!

  • 24. Can I use the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser if I’m pregnant or have a pre-existing medical condition?

    If you are pregnant or have a pre-existing medical condition and are unsure of how the treatment might affect you – please consult your doctor or personal health professional before using the Leimo® Personal Hair Laser Starter Kit and use it only as directed.

  • 25. I experience a burning / itching / redness on my scalp after using the Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment – is this normal and will this lead to further hair loss?

    All the ingredients in the Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment are made from natural sources. The active ingredient in the Scalp Therapy Day Treatment is designed to act as a vasodilator to the hair follicle capillaries. If the Scalp Therapy Day Treatment is applied to a warm scalp – this effect is exacerbated in some cases and the feeling is of a “stinging” / “burning” / itching” nature - similar to using “Dencorub” or “Deep Heat” (sport gels or creams). The feeling passes relatively quickly and will leave no lasting effects. You must remember to use the Leimo® Scalp Therapy Day Treatment on a “Cool Dry Scalp” as this will minimise the effect, if you are inclined to be effected in this manner. If the conditions persists for more than 30 mins – please call the Leimo™ Customer Service Centre or consult your Doctor or Health Care Professional.
