Lasers are widely used in medicine and throughout a variety of industries, in a multitude of varying capacities. The laser energy used to grow hair is visible in the red light spectrum. The laser light used in treating hair loss and other medical conditions is defined as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). LLLT is sometimes included under a broader definition of photo-therapy called ‘low-level light therapy,’ where the light-emitting device may be a laser and/or a light-emitting diode (LED).
Thinning hair and hair loss is primarily a genetically-driven condition called Androgenetic Alopecia. Over time, this condition deconstructs or damages follicle cells and causes hair to progressively thin until the hair follicle ultimately dies, unable to ever produce hair gain.
Non-invasive Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) at a scientifically-established and clinically-proven wavelength (approximately 650 nanometers) can re-energize unhealthy follicle cells, and correspondingly stimulate and stabilize the production of fuller, thicker, and healthier hair.
When used consistently Low-Level Laser Therapy has been shown to effectively treat the primary effects of Androgenetic Alopecia (thinning hair). LLLT can effectively suspend hair loss, and ultimately return thin hair to a fuller, thicker and healthier state.
