Those of you who suffer from hair loss have probably been hearing about laser therapy otherwise known as Low Level Laser treatment (LLLT), as one of the best, non-invasive, safe treatments for hair loss. I have to admit, I’m excited by the idea that this treatment might just work after all. Usually laser + hair = hair removal, so what did they add to this equation to flip the answer to hair growth? The answer is ‘low level light therapy’.
Laser therapy for hair uses lasers at a low intensity to rid the hair follicles of any impurities. It then regenerates the cells, increasing the blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and into the follicles, stimulating growth. This is a brilliant treatment for both men and women suffering from male/female-patterned baldness.
As a non-surgical and safe treatment, laser therapy has been providing excellent results for all those who have tested this treatment. If you have just started noticing hair loss or are at the stage of having whispers, but not so much a bald patch, then this is the time to try low intensity laser treatment. When consulting your doctor of physician, they may recommend that you try low laser light therapy alongside another hair growth treatment such as supplements or hair products. Laser hair growth treatments are so much more effective when used in this way.
Laser therapy for hair loss can last anywhere from 6 months – 2 years, all depending on how quickly you have been losing your hair. Remember, this treatment is not going to make your hair grow back immediately, and if you are bald and planning to use this low laser light therapy, don’t waste your money. Results have only been effective on people suffering from thinning hair, or have just started experiencing hair loss where the follicles are still alive.
