Laser Hair Growth Treatment

A laser hair growth treatment works! Tested and proven, laser therapy can stimulate resting hairs to grow, promoting thicker, more healthier hair with new hair growth.

The popularity of this hair loss treatment continues to grow for several reasons, the most important being that it does not require taking dangerous hair loss medications such as Propecia, which can have some serious side effects. Specialists in the field of hair loss recommend using a laser hair growth treatment combined with other hair loss products such as shampoos and topical lotions. A laser treatment is a great choice for men and women experiencing the signs of thinning hair and the early stages of hair loss.

Lasers work by widening faltering hair follicles, stimulating them to repair and regain the ability to grow hair shafts that may have been getting smaller in the hair loss process. Those in the early phases of hair thinning will experience the best results from a laser hair treatment. People with the advanced stages of hair loss will not be able to stimulate hair growth in follicles that are dead, which is all the more reason hair regrowth results are best seen with people who started a treatment as soon as they noticed thinning hair and hair loss.

Best Candidates for Laser Hair Growth

The most suitable people for laser therapy are men and women in the early to moderate stages of hair loss. Treatment will not be as effective for those who are in the advanced stages of hair loss.

Hair grows in three phases: anagen (growth phase), catagen (resting phase) and telogen (shedding phase). People do not go bald overnight. It is Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), poor blood flow and environmental pollutants that cause oxidative stress in the hair follicles, causing the hair growth phase to be shortened and hair to prematurely enter the resting phase and fall out. The anagen phase eventually becomes so short that the follicle only produces a small vellus (fine) hair. When this hair sheds the follicle may enter a dormant period and produce no hair at all. This is known as miniaturisation and eventually the dormant hair follicle dies.

Treatments such as lasers have been proven to extend the anagen phase, reversing the miniaturisation process and stimulating dormant hair follicles into being productive. Once a hair follicle has completely died, there is nothing that can be done to revive it.

Laser Therapy - An Effective Hair Growth Treatment

Laser treatments can improve existing hair health, promote hair growth and are one of the more recommended hair loss treatments in use today. People who have undergone a hair transplant also use laser therapy treatments to improve and strengthen newly transplanted hair follicles. Men who ingest Propecia (a drug we advise against), use hair laser therapy to stimulate hair follicles from the outside. Women and men who use Minoxidil topically, use laser therapy to improve its effectiveness in hair growth. It should be noted that Propecia and Minoxidil do not work on receding hairlines, however laser therapy can. The combination of shampoos, conditioners and topical lotions combined with a laser hair growth treatment may help many suffering from hair loss experience new hair growth.
