TED - HAIR RESTORATION
What is Ted
Looking for a cutting edge hair restoration Tampa. Alma TED (TransEpidermal Delivery) is a ground-breaking hair growth treatment that is completely non-invasive. TED is designed to address hair shedding, hair loss, and hair thinning for both men or women. Perfectly Bare Laser is excited to be the first Tampa Medspa provider to offer the TED hair restoration service.
TED is an ultrasound-based system that uses sound waves' power and air pressure combined with topical Hair Care Formula. The sound waves and air pressure allow deeper penetration into the scalp of this powerful hair growth formula.
Together, the treatment increases blood flow, improves the health of the scalp, and ultimately stimulates hair follicles. The result is thicker, stronger, healthier hair. Alma TED is unique in that it offers outstanding hair restoration benefits without the discomfort and shedding that are typically experienced with other in-office hair treatments and procedures.
What You Can Expect
TED is a 20-30 minute treatment that requires no downtime. Arrive with clean hair and without hair products applied to the scalp or hair. Once the treatment begins, you will feel a warm sensation and a vibration or ringing sound. There is no pain. No needles or anesthesia are required. The Alma TED device works by using acoustic sound waves and air pressure to drive the active components of the topical Hair Care Formula deeper into the skin for higher compound absorption.
You must refrain from shampooing your hair or using any hair care products for 24 hours after treatment for best results.

Areas to be treated:
ALMA TED is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness or treat female hair loss due to genetic disposition, alopecia, menopause.
TED can also be used to treat hair growth deficiency for men's mustaches and beards. For women another favorable treatment area is to help thicken eyebrows.
At Perfectly Bare we can split up treatment areas in multiple zones to ensure we can customize an appropriate treatment protocol.
How many sessions:
TED treatments are scheduled as a series of three
treatments per area. Each session is scheduled
4 weeks apart over a 3 month period.
A follow up session will be scheduled after the
final treatment after 4 weeks to evaluate results and determine a maintenance program.
Between sessions, we include two LED therapy treatments in our office to help with strengthening follicle growth.
Using low-frequency “ultrasonic” acoustic sound waves and air pressure, called acoustic cavitation, TED drives topical hair growth treatments deep into the skin. The use of sound waves to increase the amount of penetration achieved with topical treatments is called sonophoresis or phonophoresis. The “stratum corneum,” or the outermost layer of the epidermis, is made up of dead cells and lipids. These form the primary barrier between the body and the surrounding environment. The stratum corneum blocks the penetration of large molecules and moisture with its “brick and mortar” type of structure. The cells can be thought of as bricks, called the corneocytes. The mortar, or lipids, holds these cells together, creating the barrier.
Ultrasonic sound waves set at a very specific vibration cause the very small, transient gaseous bubbles in the stratum corneum to expand and collapse at a rapid rate. This helps break down the brick and mortar wall. The lipids are dispersed, temporarily increasing the ability to penetrate. At the same time, the mechanical pressure caused by the sound waves achieves a push and pull effect–this facilitates the ability to deliver topical compounds through the stratum corneum layer.
This is how TED increases the penetration of topical hair growth treatments through the scalp and into the lower layer of skin. More of the active ingredients reach the hair follicles below, achieving more significant results.
