Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) for HAIR REGENERATION
The Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) technology to combat the never-ending effects of male or female pattern hair loss is here! Male pattern hair loss affects a huge percentage of men (50% in the US) and female pattern hair loss affects 1 out of every 20 women.
Historical Development of Low Level Light Therapy and How It Works
The positive effects of LLLT were discovered by accident. During the 1960’s and 1970’s, laser energy was used to evaluate the potential bio-stimulating effects of living tissues. During experiments on the effects of laser energy on treating leg ulcers in patients, it was observed that the surrounding hair follicles began to grow new hair! These studies show that improved cellular growth is most likely through the process of photo-biotherapy (a fancy word meaning cells repair by light absorption). It is believed that laser light penetrates into the scalp tissue where it stimulates the microcirculation, improves cellular metabolism, and protein synthesis. Some studies indicate that LLLT increases blood and lymph circulation at the hair roots, decreases inflammation, and energizes follicular cells causing hair to grow thicker and fuller.
Who Are The Best Candidates for LLLT?
Men in the early stages of male pattern hair loss and women who are experiencing thinning hair or loss.
MicroCamera Hair Analysis
Do you ever wonder what your hair looks like close up? The health of hair is seen in several ways; color, thickness and structure of the hair all tell a story. Hair that is thinning is also usually losing pigment. With our MicroCamera technology we can clearly see the condition of the hair. This system allows us to monitor the changes to the scalp over time utilizing times series photos.
