What is Laser Hair Therapy for Hair Loss?
Low-Level Laser Hair Therapy is one of the most effective methods of treating early-stage androgenetic alopecia (genetic pattern hair loss) in both men and women.
Laser Hair Therapy, (also known as photo biotherapy) is a clinically proven, non-surgical, effective approach to treating hair loss and thinning hair due to androgenetic alopecia.
In the treatment of androgenetic alopecia with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), physicians have found that Laser Hair Therapy is generally most effective for individuals who are in the early stages of hair loss and thinning (Norwood Scale 1-3). It should be noted that individual response to Laser Hair Therapy differs from one individual to another. It is therefore important to consult with a qualified hair loss professional to determine whether low level laser hair therapy may be an effective treatment for hair loss in your specific situation.

The Science of Low Level Laser Therapy
In 1964, Dr. Andre Mester began experimenting with the use of low-power laser energy in Budapest, Hungary. In his experiments with wounds on mice, he noticed rapid healing due to microcirculation of blood supply. This healing was also obvious in Laser Hair Rejuvenation treatment of diabetic patients suffering with dystrophic sores.
This theory, through its evolution, has since been refined and has widely become one of the most popular non-invasive hair loss treatments in the world.
Until recently, the use of such treatments has been relatively underutilized in North America. Today, however, there is increasing awareness and broad acceptance of low level laser therapy.
What is Low Level Laser Light?
Low level laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength) and columnated (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot). These properties allow laser light to penetrate with no heating effect, no damage and no known side effects.
For many years, leading hair restoration clinics and salons around the world have been using ‘cold-beam’ laser technology for individuals suffering from problem hair conditions. It is a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) that works by increasing blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles, encouraging hair volume and healthier hair. The unique laser light penetrates into the scalp tissue where it stimulates the microcirculation and improves cellular metabolism and protein synthesis.
