LASER HAIR THERAPY


Laser Hair Therapy (LHT) is a new nonsurgical scientific approach to treating hair loss, thinning hair, baldness and problems associated with the scalp. LHT is a medically tested and proven method using low-level laser energy, or “soft” laser light, to effectively treat and control hair loss.

The LHT nonsurgical treatments utilize a device containing 15 therapeutic soft low light level lasers developed in Europe for the treatment of hair loss and diseases of the scalp.

The treatment delivers light energy directly from 15 rotating laser positions designed to increase the blood flow to the scalp. The laser therapy functions on the same scientific principal as photo biotherapy, where the laser light stimulates cell metabolism, causing damaged cells to be repair themselves. This breakthrough technology has been featured on national newscasts across the country. Physicians are praising LHT as an effective treatment to combat hair loss.


Evolution of Laser Hair Therapy

Laser Light Therapy was first tested in Europe over ten years ago to treat diseases of the scalp and skin.

In 1964, Professor Andre Mester began experimenting with the use of low-power laser energy in Budapest, Hungary. He observed that low-energy laser exposure has a stimulating effect on the biological system, while high-energy laser exposure had an inhibiting effect.

In his experiments, Mester noticed rapid healing due to microcirculation of blood supply. The healing was also obvious in laser light treatment of diabetic patients suffering with dystrophic sores. He was amazed to find that sores that would not heal began to improve dramatically.

This theory, through its evolution, has since been refined and is widely becoming one of the most popular non-invasive hair loss treatments in the world.


Laser researcher Dr. J. Layton Wright states:  ”Laser Hair Therapy increases microcirculation of the hair follicle, which allows nutrients and freshly oxygenated blood to access the hair follicle with the results being a stimulation of the natural hair growth cycle.”


What causes hair loss or thinning hair?

  1. Autoimmune Diseases
  2. Diet
  3. Excessive Chemical Processing
  4. Heredity
  5. Male Pattern Baldness
  6. Medications
  7. Menopausal Changes
  8. Postpartum Changes
  9. Stress
  10. Thyroid Disorders
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Therapy?
  1. Fifty-four percent Increase in blood supply to the scalp after one treatment

  2. Stops the progression of hair loss in 85% of the patients

  3. Stimulates re-growth of hair

  4. Repairs and improves hair shaft quality resulting in a 25% increase in volume

  5. Dramatically prolongs the life of hair color and perms

  6. Relieves irritating scalp conditions

  7. When used post-operatively with hair transplantation, the newly transplanted hair follicles can forego their dormancy stage.

Have the benefits of Laser Hair Therapy been scientifically measured?

Yes! A double-blind placebo controlled study was conducted to evaluate the effect of laser light therapy by comparing it with a placebo laser.
  1. All patients with the exception of one in the laser treated group showed a complete stop of hair loss.

  2. Fifteen out of 18 patients showed a clear re-growth of hair with a reduction of at least one category in the Norwood Classification.

  3. Fourteen out of 18 patients showed an increase in hair thickness and all 18 showed improvement in the general hair shaft quality. The results showed no improvement in the placebo group or any adverse effects of the treatment.

  4. The present double-blind study confirmed by histological examination, revealed that re-growth of new hairs could be achieved in most middle-age and younger males with typical male pattern baldness, when the scalp is irradiated with Laser Light Therapy for 30 minutes, twice a week, for 5 weeks. The treatments are pain free, completely safe, and contain no side effects.

Who is the best candidate for Laser Hair Therapy?

Generally men in the early stages of male pattern baldness and women experiencing a general thinning of the density throughout their scalp. LHT is the long-anticipated answer for the hair transplant specialist who is unable to perform transplant procedures on certain individuals:

  • Patients in the early stages of hair loss (Thinning area where the existing hair is still too close together to warrant an incision between the existing hairs).

  • Women who experience a general thinning, including the sides and back where a transplant specialist would typically harvest the donor site.

Is Laser Hair Therapy safe?

Yes! The Laser Hair Therapy device, (which is classified as a Certified Class IIIA cosmetic laser) is recognized by the FDA and is approved for cosmetic use in the United States.

The energy produced by the photons does not have the thermal component to cause thermal injuries to users or operators. Laser light energy does not change or alter molecular structures; it stimulated the body’s mechanism to repair and heal itself.
