The official phrase low level laser growth therapy (LLLT) is a medical procedure that uses low-power (or “cold”) lasers to react with cells and their functions in the human body to treat a variety of conditions. One such popular treatment is for encouraging healthy hair growth for people, men and women, afflicted with hair loss.
Biological reaction to light is used widespread for many conditions, from cancer treatments to soft tissue repair in physical therapy. For hair growth, red light (the low-level light, or “soft” laser) is used to react to the damaged cells responsible for growing your hair. The result is healthier cells and a restoration to normal bodily functions.
Study after study has shown that LLLT is a safe, non-invasive hair growth procedure that can show real results in restoring healthy, shiny hair. It increases volume, growth and thickness of miniaturized hair follicles whether you’re suffering from trichotillomania or simply want fuller hair; this procedure could be for you.
Like many other treatments and therapies, laser hair growth treatment or therapy is not 100% effective for 100% of people. But, recent advances in technology and more conclusive studies and research have increased the odds in this procedure, making it more effective than ever before.
In addition to faster and more efficient procedures in-office, there are products offered to use outside of the doctor’s office, like hair laser combs.
Still, it is important to seek the help of a hair loss clinic who has much experience with this therapy. The staff at HRC is extremely knowledgeable in LLLT and has been administering this therapy for many, many years in the Los Angeles area.
