Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is one of the latest treatments for hair restoration that uses low-power lasers or, in some cases, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help stimulate hair growth. Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment that does not require an unreasonable commitment of a patient’s time. Low level laser technology has shown promising results when used to treat arthritis, joint disorders, hair loss, chronic pain, and many other ailments. Low-level lasers are now being used with great success by increasingly more hair loss patients, and they can also be used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments.
Cold lasers also work to counteract the negative effects of the DHT hormone by stimulating the cellular metabolism involved in hair growth. DHT is the leading cause of genetic balding and is the cause of male and female pattern baldness.
