Let’s face it – our hair is an important part of our identity. We spend a good deal of time and energy making sure it looks great and that it complements not only our facial structure and skin tone but also our lifestyle. That’s why hair loss can be such a devastating event for anyone. Fortunately there is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment option available – low-level laser energy.
A common reason for hair loss is pattern baldness, which is a genetic condition. It affects both men and women, and it has a distinctive pattern for each gender. Men tend to see their hairlines recede back from their foreheads and may also suffer hair loss at the crown of their heads. Women tend to see a diffuse thinning all across the top of their scalps. In either case, it’s often heartbreaking and always frustrating.
Clinical studies have shown that low-level laser therapy can be an effective treatment for pattern baldness in both men and women. Not only does it increase the number of hairs growing in the treated area, it also seems to positively affect that hair which hasn’t been lost. Clients note that existing hair is thicker, shinier and more manageable after treatment.
The therapy itself is quite simple. The device used is a light source that emits a wavelength of light that can penetrate the scalp and stimulate hair growth. Clients engage in a series of short treatments over the course of several weeks that may also be combined with scalp treatments and massage to promote circulation. Because the laser used is infrared based, the treatment is painless and there are no side effects.
