There are various reasons we lose our beautiful head of hair. It can be due to health reasons, medication, infections, unhealthy lifestyle or simply because of genetics. If you suffer from hair loss due to some of these referenced reasons, you may still be able to regrow them.
Laser hair loss therapy is the latest non-surgical scientific approach for treating hair loss, thinning hair, and problems associated with the scalp. This therapy makes use of low level laser light or “cold laser” to effectively prevent and control hair loss problems.
In addition, laser therapy works for all types of hair loss and scalp conditions including the following: male or female pattern baldness, chemical damage, eczema, seborrhea, hormonal changes, medications, diet and stress.
How does laser hair loss treatment work?
Laser hair loss therapy involves stimulating the scalp in low level laser light with the frequency and intensity determined by the administrator. The application of laser energy directly to the cells can purportedly enable them to revitalize hair regrowth.
Laser hair loss treatment uses low-level infrared light energy that penetrates deep into the tissues of the scalp, stimulating micro-circulation of blood supply, cell metabolism and protein synthesis. Once the blood circulation in the hair follicles increases, added nutrition is then brought into the hair follicle and then stimulates growth within it. In other words, with the utilization of the laser hair loss therapy, nutrients are then transported to the area of the scalp, hence nourishing the hair follicles for better hair growth. Laser therapy reactivates hair growth by stimulating live, but weakened, follicles at the cellular level; however, it does not reactivate dead follicles.
As a result of this treatment, the hair you already have can grow thicker and stronger than it did before treatment began. It can also reduce the amount of hair loss and can be used to assist recovery of the scalp following hair transplant surgery.
Does it work for everyone?
Every person differs in the forms and stages of hair loss; hence, results will vary from person to person. However, various studies have shown that 90% of people who have undergone this therapy achieved positive benefits. And over 40% noticed improvements in their hair within 6 weeks of starting treatment.
Is laser hair loss treatment safe?
Yes. Hair loss therapy through low level lasers is a non-invasive procedure. Unlike high powered lasers, low level laser lights do not give off heat and do not have the thermal component to cut, burn or vaporise. The lasers that are used need less energy than a 40-watt lightbulb; this therapy has been tested and proven safe. There are no side effects, and the only safety precaution is to avoid looking directly into the laser beams.
