Low-Level Laser Therapy
Light from a laser in a specific wavelength has an effect on your body when it is applied for a sufficient length of time. Observations of wavelength stimulation for optimal hair growth have shown precisely what wavelengths, power, and intensity are necessary for optimal effect in stimulating new hair growth.
It is important to note that heat is not associated with the photochemical and photo therapeutic effects of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is a low wattage ‘cold light’ laser, and while there are visible red wavelengths, there is no sensation on the skin of person undergoing treatment. Cold lasers are safe and universally accepted as such by medical authorities, worldwide. Also significant is the fact that there are no side-effects associated with the use of LLLT.
Hair growth using LLLT is not a one-time ‘fix’ for hair loss. It must be repeated at intervals to maintain results. Typically 3 to 4 sessions per week for 20 to 25 minutes is the suggested treatment frequency, and results usually take approximately 4 to 6 months. Once hair growth is achieved, an ongoing ‘maintenance’ schedule of 1 to 2 sessions per week is strongly recommended to maintain new growth, and keep the hair looking healthier, fuller, and more vibrant.
