High frequency is an emerging hair growth treatment that uses a mild electrical current to stimulate blood flow and nutrients to follicles. Handheld high frequency devices are now available for at-home use. But how often should you use a high frequency device for optimal hair regrowth results?

How Often to Use High Frequency for Hair Growth

Using a high frequency device for 5-10 minutes per session, 3 times per week, provides an effective regimen for hair growth. Consistency is key to seeing gradual improvements over 6+ months of regular use.

Session Duration

Each high frequency session only needs to be 5-10 minutes long. Any more risks overstimulating follicles.

Weekly Frequency

Using the device 3 times per week allows sufficient recovery time between sessions.

Treatment Length

It takes at least 6 months of consistent 3x/week use to see significant hair growth results.

How High Frequency Works for Hair Growth

Here’s how regular use of a high frequency device promotes hair regrowth:

Circulation Boost

The electrical current increases blood flow to provide nutrients.

ATP Activation

Electrotherapy energizes follicles to boost cellular metabolism.

Anagen Stimulation

Gentle electrical signals extend the active hair growth phase.

Edema Reduction

It helps reduce inflammation around follicles to remove growth barriers.

Maximizing High Frequency Results

Follow these tips to optimize your high frequency hair growth regimen:

Shampoo First

Use on clean, dry scalp for optimal conductivity.

Apply to All Areas

Cover the entire scalp for uniformly stimulated growth.

Use Conductive Gel

Water- or oil-based gels improve current diffusion into skin.

Low, Comfortable Settings

Use the lowest settings that don’t cause discomfort.

Combine Treatments

Pair with massage, laser caps, minoxidil for enhanced results.

Who Should Avoid High Frequency

Check with your doctor before using high frequency if you have:

Heart Conditions

Pacemaker users should avoid electrotherapy devices.

Skin Disorders

Open wounds, lesions or skin infections may increase risk.

Metal Implants

Plates, screws or metal implants near treatment site.

Localized Scarring

High frequency may interact with scar tissue.

Cancer History

Those who had cancer near treatment areas should consult their oncologist first.

The Bottom Line

Using a high frequency device just 5-10 minutes per session, 3 days per week, provides a safe, effective approach for gradually stimulating new hair growth through enhanced blood flow, metabolism and anagen prolongation. Consistency over time is key to success.
