Low Level Laser Treatment LLLT uses lasers lights to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation and reduce oxidative stress.
Laser have been FDA cleared to grow hair and are backed by clinical trials, it is a drug free treatment with no known side effects. But here is some information on choosing which laser to purchase.
Laser light have been clinically proven to promote hair growth. They deliver high energy and a more direct light.
LED lights have not been clinically proven to promote hair growth. They don't deliver high energy and don't have a direct light. That is what makes some lasers less expensive because they have mostly LED lights.
Dentist, orthopedist, dermatologist, veterinarian, physical therapist and sports medicine all use laser therapy.
There are laser combs that are the size of a hair brush that can be used to target just a certain spot of hairloss. They are great for traveling and are usually less expensive.
A Laser Band is simply a band that has combs on it to part the hair so the light can get through to the scalp. This is best on someone with minimal hairloss.
Laser Caps are better on someone with more diffused thinning so that it can get right to the scalp and cover more surface.
Hair grows in 3 month cycles so you won't see results over night with a laser. The key is to consistently use the laser to see results. If you know you won't remember to use the laser as directed this may not be the best option for you.
Make sure to take a picture before you start using the laser and check back every 3 months. Also follow the directions on the frequency for the laser that you purchase.
I have chosen to offer my clients only the highest quality lasers that are FDA cleared and supported by clinical studies. They are also true lasers and not LED.
