Laser Hair Therapy is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment that is being used around the U.S. for the treatment of hair loss. Like other treatments (such as Propecia and Minoxidil), some patients tend to respond better than others. In general, it seems that patients who ‘have more hair’ (perhaps in early stages of hair loss) tend to have better results. Large-scale clinical trials have yet to be performed. However, many men and women are seeing positive changes in their hair in response to these types of treatments. In the wake of the positive performance of a hand-held laser therapy device in the Dateline-NBC investigation, NBC6-Miami interviewed several South Florida residents who have been using the laser therapy in-office “hood” treatments.
For many years, leading hair restoration clinics and salons around the world have been using ‘cold-beam’ laser technology for individuals suffering from problem hair conditions. This Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) works by increasing blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles, encouraging hair volume and healthier hair. The unique laser light penetrates into the scalp tissue where it stimulates the microcirculation and improves cellular metabolism and protein synthesis.
Does It Hurt?
No, since Low Level Laser Therapy is non-invasive, patients should not be able to feel any discomfort. Additionally, because Low Level Laser Therapy is a “cold” laser, there is no burning or UV radiation associated with the procedure. One of the great benefits is that patients are able to immediately return to their normal schedule and resume their regular activities.
