LASER HAIR THERAPY
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.
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
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
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.”

Yes! A double-blind
placebo controlled study was conducted to evaluate the effect of
laser light therapy by comparing it with a placebo laser.
All patients with the exception of one in the laser
treated group showed a complete stop of hair loss.
Fifteen out of 18 patients showed a clear re-growth of hair
with a reduction of at least one category in the Norwood
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.
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:

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.
