Each treatment is enhanced with BioAMP™ technology, which adds thickness from inside the cuticle and strengthens the hair shaft, and the Scalp Access™ delivery system, which helps protect nutrients as they nourish the scalp and hair.

Four formulas are available: Scalp Treatment System 2 for fine, natural (not chemically enhanced) hair; Scalp Treatment System 4 for fine, chemically enhanced hair; Scalp Treatment System 6 for medium or coarse, natural hair; and Scalp Treatment System 8 for medium or coarse, chemically enhanced hair.

LED-Light Therapy

The Revitalight skin-care system provides noninvasive skin treatments with painless LED-light therapy. In an average of six to eight 20-minute sessions with the Revitalight system, patients will notice how different their skin looks and feels. Already cleared by the FDA for treating acne and pain, Revitalight uses LED therapy procedures, which work by pulsating colored light into the skin. The Revitalight LED directs light energy from the pulsator to specific problem areas, rather than using the “broad-brush” approach used by other LED devices.

Red LEDs prevent the appearance of aging and promote photorejuvenation, amber LEDs trigger pain relief, and blue LEDs treat acne. A disposable plastic pulsator cover ensures cleanliness, while trained professionals apply the proper technique to stimulate skin for a smoother, healthier appearance.
