Laser Therapy & Hair Loss
The low level lasers are called “soft” or “cold” lasers since they do not emit heat, sound, or vibration. Rather than a topical that metabolises into the blood stream once applied, the lasers penetrate 650 nm into the scalp to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and stimulate hair regrowth. The conversion and presence of DHT will still continue, however laser therapy prevents excessive build up of DHT in blood vessels so hair is able to receive proper protein, nutrients, water and cellular energy.
Laser Therapy in Treating Chemotherapy Induced Hair Loss
Laser therapy has been shown effective in treating patients with chemotherapy induced alopecia. Those using laser therapy following chemotherapy have seen their hair returning up to 3 months sooner and with normal characteristics. The goal is to stimulate hair regrowth so hair does not get stuck in dormancy. Laser Therapy is a great option for those who have undergone chemotherapy and want to accelerate hair regrowth and for those who have finished years ago and are still struggling with regrowth.
