WHAT IS LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY?
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that uses lasers, or light energy, to help encourage hair growth. The laser devices that are used in the treatment are ‘cold lasers’ as they do not give off any heat and therefore are safe to use, and will not cause damage to the skin or the hair itself.
LLLT is a treatment that can be used for individuals who are experiencing male and female pattern hair loss which is also known as androgenetic alopecia. It is a genetic condition and it is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. Androgenetic alopecia is caused because of a gene that is more sensitive to the effects of Dihydrotestrostone (DHT). DHT can build up in the roots of hair follicles and can cause them to get smaller. Eventually, the follicles become completely dormant and hair growth stops.
How does LLLT work?
The Low-Level Laser Therapy works by energizing and activating the cells within hair follicles to promote growth.
During your LLLT treatment, you will be sat under the laser therapy machine. The hood looks just like a hooded dryer that you would see at a hair salon, and the device holds a number of laser diodes. These emit a particular wavelength and frequency of light which delivers the LLLT to the follicles.
During the treatment that lasts around 30 minutes, you do not feel anything whilst under the machine. You will need to repeat the LLLT treatments regularly depending on the extent of the hair loss which will be discussed with your Hair Dr consultant.
