Non-Invasive Hair Loss Treatments: Low-Level Laser Therapy
Not every person dealing with hair loss is a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. Even some patients who are suited for a hair transplant may not feel comfortable or enthused about the idea of surgery, even though it is a safe and effective way to restore hair to its fuller, more youthful appearance. Such individuals aren’t out of luck by any means, however.
At the Miami Hair Institute, we offer a range of non-surgical, non-invasive hair restoration options that do a great job of putting the brakes on hair loss and encouraging new hair growth. One such treatment is low-level laser therapy (LLLT).
What is Low-Level Laser Therapy?
Low-level laser therapy nourishes hair follicles by sending pulses of energy into inactive follicles. These pulses “spark” those dormant follicles back into a regrowth phase by kickstarting proper circulation and cellular respiration.
The hair-stimulating energy is delivered to the scalp through specialized comb, caps, or bands.
The CapillusRX Laser Cap
The most powerful laser device available to treat hair loss, the CapillusRX uses low-level light therapy to strengthen hair follicles and create a thicker, fuller, healthier head of hair.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat androgenetic alopecia, hair loss patients can use the CapillusRX device at home with minimal effort. Patients only need to wear the Capillus cap six minutes a day, making it simple and convenient for everyday use. While you go about your regular activities, the 312 laser diodes are hard at work under your cap, improving hair quality and restoring your hair.
For some hair transplant patients, we use the CapillusRX to maintain the health of non-transplanted hair. Studies have shown that the device is effective at preventing thinning over time.
HairMax Laser Combs stimulate hair follicles at a cellular level to promote hair regrowth, reverse hair thinning, and help grow thicker hair. This quick and convenient treatment only takes up eight minutes of your day three days a week, and you will notice results in as little as 25 weeks.
The Laser Band 82 incorporates patented hair-parting teeth that part your hair during treatment to allow optimal laser light delivery to the hair follicles. All it takes is 90 seconds, three days a week, to see improvement in the thickness and fullness of your hair.
Stand-alone Treatment or In Conjunction With Transplant Surgery or Medication
LLLT can be effective by itself, but it is also often used as a complement to transplant surgery or alongside medication such as Rogaine or Propecia. After a hair transplant, LLLT helps bring blood, oxygen, and nutrients to balding areas, enhancing the effects of the surgery. However, even in the most successful hair transplants, there can still be some stubborn and uncooperative follicles that resist regrowth. LLLT can get those reluctant follicles in gear and stimulate their growth.
