Alma TED
Hair Restoration

Hair loss is on the rise, with more than 80 million men and women suffering from it. In the past, expensive and invasive surgical procedures were the only options to restore thinning hair and areas of baldness. Unfortunately, as hair loss becomes an epidemic, the number of patients seeking treatment continues to rise. But with this comes more advanced treatment options that work for various hair-related issues.

Hair loss is a multifactorial problem, and everything from stress, diet, and genetics to hormonal fluctuations and pollution can affect how your hair grows.

Once we lose our hair—which can show as thinning or more patchy areas—our outlook on life and self-esteem can change because our hair defines who so many of us are. While the corrective options for hair loss run the gamut from topical treatments to transplantation surgery, the most innovative solution available is Alma Ted, an excellent solution for getting back the hair you’ve lost.

Many hair growth solutions are uncomfortable and traumatic and come with serious downtime. Alma TED is the opposite, thanks to its ultrasound-based system, making it a growing option for correcting hair loss.

What is the Alma TED hair restoration treatment?

A hair restoration treatment is any procedure (there are different options) that prompts the hair to restore its normal and healthy growth patterns. Unlike traditional hair restoration treatments, Alma TED is unique in that it is pain-free and does not use any needles. Instead, it relies on acoustic sound waves and air pressure to drive the medication into the dermal layer of the scalp. The Alma TED system also harnesses the power of ultrasound-based energy with a unique tip engineered with Impact Delivery™. This special push-back effect compliments the treatment when topical products are used. Together, this unique approach delivers a non-invasive, non-traumatic option to correct hair loss and thinning hair concerns.

TED stands for transepidermal drug delivery, a unique, revolutionary technology that sets this hair restoration treatment apart from the rest. It employs a specialized hair growth formula with proven ingredients that support the optimal environment and functionality of the hair and scalp. Strengthening the scalp and feeding it with the nutrients it needs to thrive also strengthens the hair follicles so that each strand is equipped to grow efficiently.

The device is perfectly calibrated to your skin depth so that the scalp can receive and absorb the highest amount of the medication delivered for maximum effectiveness.

How does the TED hair restoration procedure work?

The Alma TED system works by pushing acoustic sound waves and air pressure to drive the active ingredients in a specialized serum deeper into the scalp. This combination provides the highest level of absorption possible.

However, each piece of the treatment works individually. For example, the sound waves produce these gaseous bubbles that expand so the medication can absorb appropriately. On the other hand, the air pressure makes a push-and-pull effect of further driving the hair-improving ingredients into the skin.

Currently, Alma TED is the only low-frequency hair restoration ultrasound system on the market that works with sound waves to grow better hair. The ingredients in the serum used during the treatment contain growth factors to wake up dormant hair follicles to jumpstart the hair growth cycle. In turn, the hair begins to grow thicker. Studies report that with the treatment, the hair can even grow back to its original shade.

The TED hair restoration treatment uses no needles, lasers, or incisions. Instead, the treatment relies on sound and air pressure, which makes it a pain-free, revolutionary process and procedure.

A session takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. First, the hair is washed (or you’ll be asked to arrive at your appointment with freshly-washed hair). Then, the handpiece makes contact with the scalp, and there will be some warmth on the skin, a vibration, and a ringing sound. The treatment is entirely painless, and there’s no downtime or recovery.

Some patients notice results as soon as three weeks, although most see the full effect at the treatment’s end, consisting of three sessions one month apart.

What are the benefits?

Hair restoration treatments can provide a multitude of benefits. Of course, the most obvious benefit is increased hair growth, but that’s not all TED is capable of producing. It can also:

Most patients need at least three treatments spaced one month apart. However, most patients start to see the initial signs of improvement after the first month.

Who is the TED Hair Restoration treatment for?

The TED treatment works well for anyone with hair-related concerns regarding growth or thinning. The treatment works to nourish the scalp and hair follicles, making it an appropriate solution for anything with hair shedding or hair loss. It’s an excellent treatment for maintaining hair health, too. TED works for genetic-related, stress-related, post-partum and even COVID-related hair thinning.

The procedure is effective for men and women and helps to improve male and female pattern baldness and non-scarring alopecia.

Does it hurt?

No. The TED treatment is pain-free and doesn’t require lasers, scalpels, or injections. During the 30-minute treatment, you feel some mild warmth on the scalp and a gentle buzzing feeling, neither of which hurts. Most patients find the treatment relaxing and enjoyable. At the end of the treatment, your hair may still be damp, and you’ll be able to return to your regular activities with no downtime.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the Alma TED treatment varies from person to person, depending on the number of treatments required. Therefore, we recommend a consultation for a detailed estimate to determine your treatment’s cost.

While PRP is an excellent option for restoring thinning hair, it relies on blood plasma extraction and needles. TED does not require a blood draw or any injections into the scalp.

Yes! Although Alma TED is most frequently used to improve the correct condition of the scalp, you can use it on other areas where hair growth is affected. Popular treatment areas include the beard and the eyebrows, which can experience hair growth changes, too.

What’s great about TED is that there’s no downtime with the treatment. However, it is advised not to wash your hair for the first 24 hours post-procedure. Also, do not color your hair in the first few days following your session.
