Low Level Laser Therapy is not new to medicine. Since the 1960s, doctors have relied on laser therapy to relieve the symptoms associated with chronic neuropathic and musculoskeletal diseases. At low levels, lasers relieve pain and inflammation by preventing further tissue damage.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a completely non-invasive method of returning to grow thinning or hair loss. LLLT involves photobiomodulation or phototherapy to stimulate cellular metabolic activity in the scalp, all without taking drugs or surgically modifying the hair follicles. Laser therapy naturally attracts nutrients and blood flow to the scalp so that follicles can normally enter the hair growth cycle.
Laser hair therapy is generally painless and safe, but possible side effects vary depending on the patient's medical history and the device used. Talking to a licensed hair loss specialist before undergoing laser hair therapy helps minimize the potential for negative reactions. Not all laser caps are created to the same standards, quality or attention to detail as others. Not effective or dangerous, it is not recommended to invest time and money in an unregulated medical device.
