However there is now an increased awareness and acceptance of low level laser among the practitioners
What is Low Level Laser?
Low level laser is a term adopted by the laser therapy community to differentiate this form of treatment from high power lasers such as those used in surgery. Low Level Laser and Monochromatic Light Therapy are commonly used to threat hair loss
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy or as it is known by the Manufacturers Laser Phototherapy is compressed light of a wavelength from the red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise colour; 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). These properties allow laser light to penetrate with no heating effect, no damage and no known side effects, making it an excellent source of energy for people experiencing thinning hair or hair loss.
Many long-term clinical research programmes at laser institutes internationally have shown that bio-stimulation of laser phototherapy gives numerous positive effects to the skin and hair. Laser Therapy bathes your hair roots with a nourishing light and is designed to energize the hair cells. Living cells "like" light and your hair is not different. The most common example of light converting into chemical energy is photosynthesis, where plants are fed via light converted into chemical energy. Scientific studies on cell cultures have shown that laser penetrates into soft tissue and increases the action of adenosine triphosphate, a molecule that is a major carrier of energy from one reactor site to another in all living cell.
Laser therapy has lately been in the news as being the breakthrough in hair regrowth. This is correct in most cases where hair re-growth is possible with laser therapy. However, laser therapy is not the utopia as is bandied about. Careful evaluation of the hair loss is required to determine whether you are likely to benefit from laser therapy. And this can only be established during a consultation with an expert in the field of hair loss and hair restoration. It stands to reason that a person who has been bald for several years and this person is genetically predisposed to hair loss that no amount of laser therapy will revive something that is not there.
It is just not possible and amounts to false advertising. Beware of hair companies offering only one solution treatment for hair loss. The solution could very well be the wrong one for you, no matter what the various paid celebrities say.
