LLLT is a modern non-surgical hair loss treatment that uses laser light to stimulate cell growth and supercharge hair follicles. It helps to combat hair loss and improve the volume and appearance of hair. The therapy is painless and has no known side effects.
LLLT has been approved by the FDA as a hair loss treatment for both men and women. It is mainly used to treat androgenetic alopecia or what’s often referred to as male or female pattern-baldness.
Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women, and a hereditary condition which causes hair follicles to shrink and become dormant, eventually stopping hair growth all together.
LLLT can also be used to treat other forms of alopecia and hair loss that stems from causes such as chemotherapy or severe hair loss that may occur in women after pregnancy or menopause.
It is also frequently used to complement other hair loss treatments such as PRP therapy and can be particularly effective in conjunction with hair transplant procedures. Results with LLLT have also shown to be even more beneficial than medications over the short-term
