As opposed to andropause, menopause marks the decline of estrogen production. Unfortunately, the hair, skin, and other vital organs in the body are affected by this process.
Besides stress, thyroid dysfunction, and other illnesses, hair loss could occur during menopause because of androgenic activity.
Women also produce androgens in the ovaries and adrenal glands. Experts believe that hair loss happens during this stage since androgen levels can become a powerful factor in the destruction of the hair follicles.
When testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), hair loss is highly likely. Age-related hair loss in women is often characterized by a diffuse pattern of hair loss.
Using Hair Loss Laser Treatment
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a light source treatment that renders a coherent light, which emits no heat, sound, or vibration. Rather than thermal, the effects of LLLT on the living cells are photochemical.
A hair loss laser treatment using LLLT induces photobiostimulation, a natural process by which light energy turns into chemical energy for the cells’ consumption. The chromophores absorb the photons which then work on the mitochondria. In this manner, cellular metabolism improves.
Besides photobiostimulation, experts found out that LLLT also results in vasodilation, which is one of the conventional methods today to promote hair growth.
LLLT is a non-invasive and non-drug therapy known to treat hair loss. It is the subject of more than 2,500 research groups. It is very common among Europeans and Americans because of its reported positive effects on the living cells.
According to European studies, LLLT stopped 85% of hair loss progression while induced hair regrowth for 55%. This type of hair loss laser treatment is considered by all standards, a non-significant risk laser so it’s practically safe for the general public.
