Hair loss can be a discouraging part of aging for men as well as women, and if often completely outside of our control. Up to 70% of men and 40% of women suffer from androgenetic alopecia, producing different kinds of hair loss patterns.
Luckily, hair laser therapy can help – this state-of-the-art hair loss treatment can create new hair growth and help you regain your confidence. This procedure, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), emits light on a specific wavelength, which is absorbed by the tissue’s molecules and stimulates the growth of new hair follicles. Low-level laser therapy, which is also called cold laser or soft laser therapy, is a safe treatment that doesn’t have any adverse effects or result in pain.
The treatment can involve a few different kinds of tools, including a small hand-held laser device, an adjustable hood that can be moved over the head, and caps that are placed over the area of hair loss. The machine uses a red light at a wavelength of 630 to 670 nanometers to increase blood circulation in the scalp and stimulate the production of new catagen and telogen hair follicles, which then grow into anagen hair.
While men tend to experience a receding hairline and balding, women find that their hair becomes less dense overall. While many people associate hair loss with getting older, a surprising amount of patients seek hair regrowth treatments under 35. The best bet is to consult with your doctor as soon as you think that hair loss might have an impact on your confidence, and find out what treatments might be compatible with your exact kind of hair loss. You don’t have to wait until your hair loss has gotten really noticeable by others: if you anticipate that you will be affected by either male or female pattern hair loss, get in touch as soon as possible for your consultation – studies show that those who tried LLLT in the early stages benefited more from the treatment.
For those suffering from genetic hair loss, laser therapy is effective as a treatment, increasing hair density and overall appearance.
