What is Low Level Laser Therapy for Hair Loss?
Low Level Laser Therapy for hair loss (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 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.
