Most people know that laser therapy has been used to remove unwanted hair permanently. But what you may not know is that lasers have been used to help restore hair.
In 1967, Andrew Mester, a Hungarian scientist discovered that the use of low level laser therapy (LLLT) was efficient in stimulating hair growth. The follicles are stimulated via the laser light that helps to generate increased blood flow. Unlike the lasers that are used to remove hair, with cold lasers there is no sensations during the process.
One question that many people ask is how long does it take? Well, the typical process normally would be 2-3 visits a week that are about half hour sessions. The whole process can take up to 6-9 months but that can vary depending on the individual and their level and degree of thinning.
Laser hair therapy is mostly used for male pattern baldness and female pattern thinning for those suffering from androgenic alopecia (genetic hair loss). The general rule is that the sooner you do something about hair loss and thinning hair, the more successful your results will be.
Laser hair therapy is also most effective for individuals in the early stages of hair loss. An added benefit of Laser Hair Therapy is that this non-surgical hair regrowth method is that is it painless and there are no side effects.
For most people, Laser hair therapy treatments produce thicker hair with more shine than ever before. It gives those who have the process a much younger look. If you suffer from genetic hair loss and thinning hair, then low level laser hair loss treatments might be just what your looking for to get the hair you want.
