Laser Hair Therapy FAQ
What is Low Level Laser Light?
Low level laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength) and columnated (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot).
High Power vs. Low Level Lasers
There are two types of lasers: high power and low power. High power lasers are used to cut through tissue and give off heat. Low level laser on the other hand does not give off heat and uses photo energy.
For many years, leading hair restoration clinics and salons around the world have been using ‘cold-beam’ laser technology for individuals suffering from problem hair conditions. The Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) works by increasing blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles, encouraging hair volume and healthier looking hair.
“Will I benefit from Laser Hair Therapy?”
Both men and women experiencing early stages of hair loss (Norwood 1-3), may benefit from and see results from low level laser hair therapy.
Laser hair therapy has also been shown to be especially effective in many men and women when used in a multi-therapeutic setting in combination with a recognized hair loss control program such as Transitions exclusive dhtSENSOR hair loss prevention and control program.
Is Low Level Laser Hair Therapy Safe?
Yes. The type of laser light used in low level laser therapy (LLLT) meets all international safety standards and legislative specifications of a “non-significant risk” product, and is classified as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser.
