Hair loss is a common concern among men and women and is a problem that specialists are trying to solve. According to specialists, alternative treatment like low level laser therapy can be used as a treatment for hair loss. Generally, when people mention lasers in the context of hair, it refers to the removal of hair, until recently when these equipments are receiving significant attention with regards to the stimulation of hair growth.
Due to the lack of treatment options that are nonsurgical, laser therapy is again the focus to help millions of men and women for example in the United States alone.
Laser therapy is known by scientists and physicians to have a stimulatory effect for hair growth.
One home device is developed recently with greater laser power in the form of a hat to aid hair growth. This hat or cap would cover the entire top of the scalp and has mesh network containing 224 5-mW laser diodes. This hat or cap has a rechargeable battery that you can administer in a convenient and discreet fashion even while you are on the go. Physicians are having these devices at a rental cost and patients can avail of this treatment. There is a need to follow-up patients undergoing low level laser therapy to determine the therapeutic benefits of the procedure.
The gadgets of LLLT or low level light therapy use light energy of laser and LED devices that produce no heat and thus would cause no damage to the skin or hair follicles. It is indicated in researches that when LLLT is absorbed into the cells, there is an enhanced cellular activity happening to promote hair growth.
With FDA approval, this LLLT method may for some persons respond better than others. It is observed that some people who are still in the beginning of hair loss could have better results. Specialists can claim that many men and women are experiencing positive changes in their hair when they underwent laser hair therapy.
Praises from the medical professionals for this new technology for hair loss, and many television channels are featuring this new technology.
With laser hair therapy, one will not feel pain, thermal or damage, and no cutting or burning sensation, because it uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.
