What Is HAIRestart®?
Fotona’s HaiRestart® hair growth stimulation is an effective method of treating hair loss disorders. This innovative solution is focused on stimulation dormant hair follicles to promote hair growth.
With Fotona SMOOTH® modality HaiRestart® enables treatments that ensure highly controlled delivery of energy and provide the best comfort for the patient. Practitioners can effectively and safely deliver unique temporal and spatial temperature profiles to the scalp, resulting in increased tissue regeneration and the promotion of new follicle growth.

How It Works
The method of action lies in the patented Fotona SMOOTH®pulses that gently deliver laser light to the tissue, triggering the scalp in a safe and controlled way. Fotona SMOOTH®operates at the optimal infrared Er:YAG laser wavelength (2.94 μm) that coincides with the maximal absorption in the skin.
The unique patented feature of Fotona SMOOTH® is the ability to act in a non-ablative manner, producing precisely engineered mild thermal pulses. This ensures that the laser light is delivered to the tissue gently and efficiently, heating the scalp in a safe and controlled pulsed way. The overall effect is a gentle heating of the skin and the production of growth factors, without any significant ablation of the epidermis.
Significant Results and Highly Satisfied Patients
Several clinical studies of HaiRestart® have demonstrated high efficacy and an absence of adverse effects. Significant improvement of hair growth along with increased hair density, and a stabilization of hair loss were reported, regardless of AGA (androgenetic alopecia) grade, patient age or AGA duration.
The results of patients’ blind evaluation in one study (Day D. et al., 2021) indicated improvement in hair quality in 93% of patients, which was not correlated with age or AGA grade. In other studies (Dekeyser B., 2019 and Mercik G. et al., 2021), patients reported subjective feedback as well, describing a more elastic and less dry scalp, and thicker, more durable, healthier and denser hair than previously.
