Hair loss is a common concern among men and women and is a problem that specialists are trying to solve. According to specialists, alternative treatment like low level laser therapy can be used as a treatment for hair loss. When before lasers would be regarded as the means for hair removal in the context of hair, today the role of this device on stimulating hair growth is getting significant attention.
Due to the lack of treatment options that are nonsurgical, laser therapy is again the focus to help millions of men and women for example in the United States alone.
Because of the stimulatory effect of light therapy, scientists and physicians are driven to explore the possibility of hair growth using the low level laser method.
A greater laser power in the form of a hat is developed recently as a home device that will promote hair growth. This hat or cap would cover the entire top of the scalp and has mesh network containing 224 5-mW laser diodes. One can administer this device in a convenient and discreet fashion since it has a rechargeable battery that will have the treatment continuously done even while on the go. This device can be rented through physicians for patients to avail of the treatment. In order to determine the therapeutic benefits of the procedure, it is recommended that patients should have a long term follow-up with this therapy.
Further information about this low level light therapy or LLLT, is that the product can range between laser and LED devices that will produce no heat and therefore is safe to use and will not cause damage to skin or hair follicles. With researches indicating that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, there is claim that this would trigger an increased cellular activity.
Note that this LLT method is approved by FDA, although some people will have different response than others. It is observed that some people who are still in the beginning of hair loss could have better results. Specialists can claim that many men and women are experiencing positive changes in their hair when they underwent laser hair therapy.
This innovative technology has been featured for many years in several TV stations that shows praises from the medical professions about this new technology as efficient therapy for hair loss.
With laser hair therapy, one will not feel pain, thermal or damage, and no cutting or burning sensation, because it uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb. As the visible red light moves into the many layers of tissue, this is being done without injuring your scalp and skin. There is an improvement of flow of blood and cellular metabolism within the scalp as the laser light stimulates the hair follicles.
