Laser photo therapy effectively promotes hair growth and helps to treat hair loss in both men and women.
Lasers work through a process known as photo-biostimulation which is similar to photosynthesis which causes growth in plants. Laser devices utilise laser phototherapy, which delivers visible light in the red spectrum. Laser delivers this nourishing light energy to the hair follicles to stimulate growth factors, extend the growth phase of hair, and help restore a healthy hair growth cycle resulting in new hair growth with increased density, fullness and vibrancy.
How Laser Light Stimulates Hair Growth
Increases growth factors for more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles.
Energises and awakens weakened or dormant hair follicles.
Reverses hair’s thinning process and restores the hairs natural growth cycle.
Stimulates hair to grow fuller, denser and stronger.
The Phases of the Hair Growth Cycle
The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: Growth (Anagen), Resting (Telogen) and Transition (Catagen). The images above illustrate the various states of the cycle. At any given time, 10-20% of your hair is in the Catagen or Telogen phase waiting to be shed and replaced by an active Anagen hair (similar to the way a baby tooth is pushed out by a permanent tooth). Laser light energises and stimulates hair follicles in the Catagen (transition) and Telogen (resting) phases causing a new Anagen hair to be formed.
The Hair Growth Cycle
Laser provides energy for a healthier hair follicle stimulating more rapid hair growth and it stimulates the root to produce a new healthier hair follicle. Laser light helps to reverse the process of miniaturisation and stimulates the growth of denser, fuller and more healthier hair.
In the “Growth Phase” or “Anagen Phase”, each hair grows approximately one centimeter (1/2 inch) per month for a period of 2 to 8 years. Laser light helps by providing energy to the hair growth process thus producing healthier, fuller hair.
In the “Resting Phase” or “Telogen Phase”, the hair stops growing and ‘rests’ for 2 to 4 months and eventually falls out. The laser light helps by stimulating the regrowth of new hair.
Termed “Vellus Hair” (light coloured, short, fine “peach fuzz” hairs), laser light helps these fine hairs by stimulating them to grow into thicker, more mature hair.
Once the root is dead, nothing can be done to ever bring it back.
