Low Level Laser Therapy, most commonly known as LLLT, is a relatively new therapy that employs low-level laser devices to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. LLLT can be used to treat hair loss in both men and women. It has no known side effects and is a painless solution to hair loss. Used concurrently with Minoxidil or Finasteride, LLLT can produce very satisfactory results.
Low-level light therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation or photobiostimulation is a relatively new technique used to promote hair growth in both men and women with AGA and female pattern hair loss.
Low-Level Laser Therapy utilizes cool lasers to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) uses devices with diodes that emit red light (wavelength 630-670 nanometers),or infrared radiation.
Whereas the exact mechanisms of hair growth stimulation by LLLT remain unknown, LLLT has been proposed to accelerate mitosis and may stimulate hair follicle stem cells and reversing miniaturization (the process leading to thicker hair shafts and a fuller look)
There have been a number of commercially available devices as: in-salon hoods or overhead panels, bonnet or head caps, hand-held devices.
Two to three times weekly treatments are typically recommended, and consist of a 8 to 15-minute exposure of the scalp to light-emitting diodes under a bonnet or head cap or using a handheld comb or brush.
Low level laser therapy is intended for men and women with thinning hair or pattern baldness caused by a hereditary condition.
Yes, Minoxidil and Finasteride can be used together with laser; there’s no need of stopping the medication.
This treatment method is safe but should not be used concomitantly with medications or products that are photosensitising.
