Laser Hair Therapy Effective for Hair Loss

Laser hair therapy is a relatively new development in the treatment of hair loss for men and women. Lasers have played a huge part in medical procedures for decades, but the cool, low light lasers that are now used in laser hair therapy have only been around for about ten years in Europe. Only in the past few years have they been approved by the FDA to be used in America. Naturally, there is skepticism about any new product, but the studies and facts about laser hair therapy should assure anyone that laser hair therapy is here to stay as a great, non-invasive option in hair restoration and treating hair loss.

First, to understand why laser hair therapy works, it’s important to understand the reasons behind hair loss in the first place. Age, genetics and hormones play significant roles in both male and female pattern hair loss. An overabundance of a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) that is triggered both by age and genetics can begin to weaken hair on a follicular level, targeting the roots. When DHT enters the picture, the root becomes malnourished, starved of essential nutrients that keep hair growing and regrowing. All of us shed hair. There is a natural cycle to hair shedding and regrowth. But when DHT becomes a problem, the hair that sheds regrows weaklier. Hair becomes thinner and less vigorous. Eventually, the hair follicle will quit altogether and the root will finally die. That hair, once gone, is gone for good. Gather up a receding hairline full of such follicles and suddenly, you’re going bald.

Topical solutions such as Rogaine can put the DHT back in balance by inhibiting it. Such products stop hair loss, but do little to reinvigorate the hair that’s left. And if you ever stop using Rogaine your hair will simply fall out. So what’s the answer?

FDA-approved laser hair therapy does what topical solutions cannot. Low-level laser light is applied to the scalp for thirty-minute sessions, during which the patient feels nothing. This is because the changes are going on at a molecular level. Light from the laser hair therapy penetrates the tissue down to the roots and, bathing the root hair in stimulating light. This encourages a better blood flow around the hair root, which, in turn, nourishes the follicle root. Your hair is like a plant that has been stuck in the basement without sunlight, which results in stunted growth. The plant will wither and eventually die. But when exposed to sunlight again, it begins to grow and thrive. This is what the renewed blood supply does for the hair follicle. Laser hair therapy brings nourishment and oxygen back to the follicle and it begins to grow in a normal, healthy way again.

Laser hair therapy works equally well with both men and women. Because it’s a non-invasive therapy and painless, treatments are done in quick, easy visits to hair replacement clinics that offer laser hair therapy. Hand-held laser brushes, recently approved by the FDA, are portable laser units that can be purchased for home use. These laser brushes are not as powerful as the low-light lasers used in the hair clinics, but have the advantage of easy use whenever and wherever a clients prefers and have shown proven results in up to 90% satisfaction rate.

One of the great advantages of laser hair therapy is the fact that it’s all-natural. There are no hair systems, no glues, no adhesives and no surgery involved. For those not willing or ready to take that next leap into surgical hair restoration or commit to wearing a hair system, laser hair therapy may be the answer to premature hair loss.

Forty-year old Lydia Tomeleson began finding an alarming amount of hair every day in her shower drain. She was devastated when she noticed her thinning hair. Her mother had lost much of her hair around the crown of her head and Lydia dreaded the same fate. When she began seeing the white of her scalp through her hair, she visited her doctor and found that she was pre-menopausal. Hormones had conspired to thin out her hair. Her doctor explained that hormones (DHT in particular) had begun to weaken her hair follicles, which was why they were excessively shedding and not regrowing with the normal cycle. He recommended stimulating the blood supply of her scalp by using laser hair therapy. She went to a hair loss treatment clinic that offered laser hair therapy and underwent treatment. It took three months to see a real difference with laser hair therapy, but in 8 months, her hair had begun to grow back, even healthier than it had been for years. Lydia stopped checking her self-esteem at her door and began to feel like herself again, regaining the confidence she had lost.

If your hair is thinning and you want a more natural approach to hair replacement, talk to a hair loss treatment specialist about laser hair therapy. It can restore both your hair and your self-esteem.
