HAIR RESTORATION OPTIONS
The Low-down on Low Level Laser TherapyThere’s a new option in hair restoration that is painless and noninvasive. Medicine is beginning to see lasers in a very different light—low level light, that is…In fact, low level laser therapy (LLLT) is among the most exciting new options in the treatment of hair loss. Lasers have long been used in all types of medical specialties, including dermatology. Many have used specific lasers to resurface the skin by creating a wound on the top layer so that new, fresh skin emerges from underneath.
But a new generation of lasers takes a very different—‘wound-less’—approach. To understand how LLLT works, you have to alter the way you view lasers. LLLT isn’t a light source that causes thermal, or heat, damage.With LLLT, there is no cutting or burning sensation. The technology doesn’t even resemble the look of traditional lasers. Instead, LLLT is delivered by a device that contains panels of lasers that shine on the scalp.
