What Is Low Level Light Hair Therapy?
For women with hereditary hair loss, low-level light therapy can help stimulate healthy hair growth and prevent less hair loss. The process consists of regular treatments in which light energy is delivered to the hair and scalp. It’s a painless procedure with no side effects that improves hair growth and allows your hair to grow in thicker and healthier.
Does it work?
If you’ve been wondering if low level light therapy might help your thinning hair, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that you can’t know for sure right now, while you’re doing research, if light therapy will work for you. The good news is, you can know for sure whether you have a type of hair loss that can be treated with low-level-light therapy. The way to find out is to have a microscopic hair and scalp analysis done by a professional you trust. Flora Fuentes and Unique Hair Concepts can tell you after a short consultation whether you will benefit from low level light therapy treatments or not.
Low Level Light Therapy Works for certain types of hair loss.
Because men lose their hair primarily for one reason, and because that cause responds well to low level light therapy, more men than women are likely to see results from low-level light therapy. That said, it’s fairly simple to identify whether this treatment will help you. It all depends on how and why your hair is starting to thin or fall out.
The make-or-break question when it comes to low level light therapy is this: Is your hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia? If it is, you can very likely prevent loss, promote healthy hair growth, and enrich the hair you have using light therapy. If not, another condition is probably causing you to shed hair, and low-level light therapy won’t help it.
Female Pattern Baldness
Even though it’s often called “male pattern baldness,” androgenetic alopecia can affect up to 40% of women at some time in their lives. In this condition, a hormone reaction causes hair follicles to move too quickly out of the actively growing stage in their growth cycle. Growth is stunted in the affected follicles, and hairs become increasingly miniaturized. Over time and without treatment, hair can be shed and follicles can stop growing hair.
Low Level Light Hair Therapy works by:
- Preventing build-up of the harmful hormone DHT
- Promoting delivery of vital nutrients to damaged hair
- Lengthening the growth cycle of the hair
- Improving the thickness and health of hair strands
- Promoting healthy hair growth
