Laser Hair Growth Treatment – Does it Really Work?


August 06, 2019

If you’re looking to grow your hair and prevent hair thinning, laser hair therapy may be for you. Laser hair regrowth treatment devices are designed for at-home use, or as part of a larger hair treatment program in a salon. It is quick and convenient, which means it won’t disrupt your weekly schedule. Best part? You can watch Netflix at home while doing the treatment!

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is being used more and more to promote hair growth in people with androgenetic alopecia.

 

How Does Laser Hair Regrowth Treatment Work?

Laser hair therapy uses medical-grade lasers to deliver safe, low level laser light to your scalp. Laser therapy is similar to watering plants. Like the water and nutrients absorbed by plants, the light energy is absorbed by your hair follicles so that your hair can continue to grow. As the light is absorbed, microcirculation increases, therefore distributing a more abundant blood supply and nutrients to the hair follicle. Low level laser light stimulates cellular activity in your follicles to help diminish hair loss while helping regrow hair.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair regrowth?

In general, laser hair therapy is meant for men and women with all lengths of hair that are noticing thinning. This would potentially mean they are in the early stages of hair loss.

Low level laser therapy works best for people with androgenetic alopecia, and can promote hair growth in males who have Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to IV and Norwood Hamilton classifications of IIa to V, and in females who have Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to IV and Ludwig (Savin) I-4, II-1, II-2 classifications, or frontal patterns of hair loss. (Receding hairlines, etc.)
