Low Level Laser Hair Therapy
Low level laser hair therapy (LLLT) is a groundbreaking development for men experiencing hair loss. This state-of-the-art technology has already helped stop, and even reverse, hair loss in millions worldwide. If you, or a loved one, are seeking a non-invasive, highly affordable hair restoration treatment method, low level laser hair therapy is the perfect solution.
The Science Behind Laser Hair Therapy
The restorative powers of low-level lasers were first discovered by Andre Mester in 1967. A professor at Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary, Mester was studying the effects of laser therapy on wounded mice. Not only did his research reveal the healing powers of low-level laser therapy, Mester also discovered that LLLT promoted hair regrowth in his subjects.
Widely used throughout Europe, and recently approved by the FDA for use in the United States, there have been more than 2,500 scientific papers published supporting Mester’s findings. With no harmful side effects, this painless, non-toxic solution has revolutionized the way we approach hair restoration. Also known as ‘cold lasers,’ low-level laser light is compressed light from the red spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. Because it travels in a straight line, in a single wavelength and is concentrated in a defined location, LLLT penetrates the skin with no heating effects or damage.
LLLT increases blood flow to your hair follicles, the results: thicker, fuller, healthier, shinier hair.
Benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy
- Though the results speak for themselves, laser hair therapy has proven to:
- Produce thicker, fuller, shinier hair
- Increase blood flow to the scalp by up to 54% after a single treatment
- Stop the progression of hair loss in 85% of the population
- Stimulate hair regrowth and healing in hair transplantation patients
- Repair damage to hair caused by chemical treatments
- Preserve hair follicles
Are you a Candidate for Laser Hair Therapy?
Because LLLT is non-invasive and free of harmful side effects, it is the ideal solution for those suffering from hair loss; regardless of age or level of health. In fact, laser hair therapy meets international safety standards as well as legislative specs for ‘non-significant risk’ products and is classified as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser.
Laser hair therapy has proven effective in treating men presenting in the early stages of hair loss, those with overall thinning, as well as those with hair loss isolated to a small region of the scalp and those who suffer from alopecia areata. LLLT is also commonly recommended for those men following a hair transplant, as a method to help stimulate hair regrowth in both the donor and recipient areas. Finally, laser hair therapy is commonly used to treat patients with advanced hair loss and those seeking hair restoration therapy following chemotherapy. Regardless of your age or stage of hair loss, you are likely a candidate for laser hair therapy. Only an experienced professional can determine your best course of treatment and we are here to help.
