Q: What is Laser Light Hair Therapy?
A: Laser Light Hair Therapy is a non-surgical method of using low-level laser energy, or “soft” laser light, to treat and control hair loss. The use of light energy to treat and cure disease is relatively new compared to the use of antibiotics. The use of low power laser energy would not have been possible without the foresight of the “Father of Laser Bio Stimulation,” Professor Andre Mester of Budapest, Hungary.
Professor Mester began wound treatments on laboratory mice in 1967 using laser energy. He discovered that low laser radiation had a stimulating effect on biological systems and that high-energy radiation had an inhibiting effect. Using low powered (cold laser), he observed and recorded rapid healing of wounds due to increased microcirculation of blood supplies. He was astonished when he also observed accelerated hair growth as well as thickening of hair in the treated areas.
Q: What are the benefits of Laser Hair Therapy?
A: Low-level laser delivered to the tissues of the scalp using the correct power can do the following:
- Increase blood supply to the scalp by 54% after one treatment
- Stimulate hair re-growth
- Help control and manage hair loss
- Increase hair strength and overall hair shaft quality
Q: Is the Laser Light Hair Therapy safe?
A: Yes! The Laser Therapy program consists of therapeutic lasers approved safe for cosmetic purposes and fully comply with federal standards for laser safety. The energy produced by the laser diodes does not have the thermal component necessary to cause thermal injuries to users or operators. There has never been an incident where an individual was harmed in any way because of laser hair treatments.
Q: How does Laser Light Therapy work?
A: Low-level laser photons irradiate the entire scalp, increasing microcirculation of blood supplies to the hair follicles. Pure red, “soft” laser light stimulates the scalp, significantly increasing the number of red corpuscles that deliver life giving oxygen and nutrients to the hair bulb. Hair follicles, which are “dormant” but not dead, can often be rehabilitated as debris is flushed from the hair shaft, swelling the cortex and closing the cuticle.
