What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an FDA approved, clinically proven pain free and side-effect free non-surgical technology that is based on photo-biostimulation to treat and control hair loss. Clinical studies have consistently demonstrated the benefits of low level light therapy to help regrow hair, improve tensile strength, fullness and the overall health of hair.
How Does It Work?
Low level laser photons irradiate the entire scalp, which increases microcirculation of blood supplies to the hair follicles. This pure red, “soft” laser stimulates the scalp, significantly increasing the number of red corpuscles that deliver life giving oxygen and vital nutrients to the hair bulb. This in turn increases nutrient supply to increase skin repair and hair growth.
Great for patients after hair surgery to aid in healing and promote growth
It also activates the body’s anti-inflammatory repair and regenerative mechanisms which have been shown to significantly increase healing after hair restoration surgery.
Laser treatments coupled with Anagen Products stimulated growth in this patient’s temporal peaks and brought wispy hair back to life. After treatments his hair is much thicker and healthier.

Laser Revitalizes Miniaturized Hairs
Hair follicles that are dormant and not dead can often be rehabilitated with photo-biostimulation. Existing established hair becomes thicker, looks and feels softer and is easier to manage. This wavelength doesn’t burn or damage tissue like the higher wavelength lasers used in surgery to cut or cauterize tissue. Results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks.
Scientific Measured Benefits of Low Level Light Laser.
In 1967 professor Andre Mester, the father of Laser Biostimulation, noted that while experimenting with laboratory mice he discovered that low energy laser radiation accelerated healing of wounds and damaged hairs around the wounded area. He noted a rapid increase in the amount of collagen, an increase in microcirculation, quicker re-growth and thickening of the hairs in the affected area.
FDA Clinical Trials
Men and women with thinning hair in the scalp area were studied In the most recently conducted FDA clinical trials of the device. The patients received two low-level laser light treatments per week over a six month period.
No Side Effects
Dr. Unger adds, “No side effects of low-level laser therapy have been observed and there here have been no reports of eye damage from exposure to low-level laser light.”
Men - Stabilization of hair loss
Women had stabilization of hair loss in the frontal area
Men - had hair re-growth in frontal area
Women had hair re-growth (11% or more from baseline) in the frontal area
Men - had hair re-growth in the vertex area
Women had hair re-growth (11% or more from baseline) in the vertex.
I Have Questions!
Does it hurt?
No! There is no sensation of warmth or pain associated with laser therapy at all. It is a completely painless procedure.
Is it effective?
Laser therapy is extremely effective. It stabilizes hair loss and promotes hair growth.
Is it FDA approved?
Yes, laser therapy is one of the 3 FDA approved treatments for hair loss.
When will I see results?
You can see results as early as 6 weeks.
How often does it need to be done?
Treatments should be repeated twice a week for the first six months. After that, doctors recommend that patients receive laser therapy at least once a week if not twice for the second 6 months. Finally, to maintain results, patients should receive treatment at least twice a month.
