laser hair therapy treatment for hair loss

LOW LEVEL LASER HAIR THERAPY (LLLT) is a revolutionary, non-surgical breakthrough for both men and women suffering the devastating effects of hair loss. Now it is easier than ever to achieve thicker, fuller, shinier, and healthier looking hair.

The low level lasers are “soft” lasers often referred to as “cold” lasers, and do not have the thermal-component to cut, burn or vaporize.

Low Level Laser Hair Therapy treatments utilize a device containing therapeutic soft low level light lasers which delivers light energy directly to the scalp.

First developed in Europe, it has been used for improving hair volume and hair shaft quality and prolonging the life of hair color and improving hair colors and perms.

The Science of Low Level Laser Therapy

While conducting research on diabetic patients in 1964, Dr Mester used LLLT to try to heal wounds that would not respond to other treatment.  Using the laser, he was able to hyper-stimulate the body's ability to generate cell growth in the affected area, thus healing the wound.  However, there was a side effect. The laser also stimulated hair growth in the treated area.

This theory, through its evolution, has since been refined and has widely become one of the most popular non-invasive hair loss treatments.

Until recently, the use of such treatments has been relatively underutilized in North America. Today, however, there is increasing awareness and acceptance of such treatments.

What is Low Level Laser Light?

Simply stated, it is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength) and columnated (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot).


“What are the Real Benefits of Laser Hair Loss Treatments?”

Both men and women experiencing early stages of hair loss may benefit from and see results from this type of treatment, the earlier you start after you noticing your thinning, the better your results will be.

It has also been shown to be especially effective in many men and women when used in a multi-therapeutic setting which includes the incorporation of specialty shampoos to maximize benefits of the laser treatment.

Is Laser Hair Loss Treatment Safe?

Yes. Low Level Laser Therapy meets all international safety standards and legislative specifications of a “non-significant risk” product, and is classified as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser. It may be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery as well as other hair loss treatment procedures.

How Soon Can I see Results?

The appearance of reduction of hair loss usually occurs after five to six treatments. Some patients and clients have also indicated that they have also experienced some regrowth after 10-12 treatments.
