What Is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?
Low level laser therapy is intended for men and women with thinning hair or pattern baldness caused by a hereditary condition. The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: growth (anagen phase), resting (telogen phase) and shedding (catagen phase). Hair loss in androgenetic alopecia depends on a testosterone derivative in the skin, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Low level laser therapy is believed to increase blood flow in the scalp and stimulate metabolism in catagen or telogen follicles, resulting in the production of anagen hair. It has also been suggested that it may assist a hair transplant patient’s postoperative wound healing process and expedite hair growth. There are many benefits to this mode of treatment. To begin with, it is beneficial to both men and women and has no adverse effect. The process is relatively inexpensive and is clean and painless. There is a noticeable hair growth within a span of 12 to 26 weeks. Our medical experts at Musk Clinic also recommend, scalp treatments and massages to help promote blood circulation as part of the treatment process.
