The FDA approved the use of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in 2007, specifically its ability to stimulate thinning hair to increase in density and thickness.
A peer-reviewed study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology in January of 2014 proved the efficacy of LLLT in the treament of hair loss in men and women. Generally, over 80% of patients stop or significantly slow their hair loss, and over 50% of patients thickened their existing hair and improved its health and quality.
How do lasers re-grow hair?
LLLT is able to stimulate and preserve hair follicles in patients with various forms of alopecia (eg: hair loss). The laser light is absorbed by the cells of the hair follicles. The stimulation has been proven to increase the blood flow to the scalp, among other positive effects.
What is a "Laser Cap"?
A laser cap is a clinically proven, save and effective way to apply the treatment. I recommend, and offer to our patients, the Capillus Laser Cap. It has 244 laser diodes, compared to 12 on laser comb. These diodes are embedded in a polymer membrane "cap" that fits inside any baseball cap, making it portable and discreet. It has power of over 20 laser combs. It is completely painless and easy to use. A half hour every other day is recommended. LLLT is a proven therapy that, along with other non-surgical options such as PRP with ACell, can increase the thickness and density without a surgical procedure, for both men and women.
