While the hair restoration physicians at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute are world-renowned for their skill, innovation, and success with hair transplant surgery, we offer several non-surgical options for the treatment of hair loss that are safe, proven, effective. This includes low-level laser therapy (LLLT) – the use of specialized energy and light to stimulate hair growth.
How Does LLLT Encourage Hair Retention and Growth?
Low-level laser therapy works by sending pulses of energy into inactive follicles. These pulses nourish the follicles and “spark” them back into a regrowth phase by encouraging better circulation and cellular respiration.
Specialized combs, caps, or domes deliver this hair-stimulating energy to the scalp. At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we offer multiple LLLT options, including:
CapillusRx Laser Cap
The most powerful laser device available for preserving hair and reducing thinning, the CapillusRx Laser Cap can be used at home with minimal time or effort. Worn for only six minutes a day, it is simple and convenient and easily integrated into a busy lifestyle. While you go about your regular activities, 272 laser diodes are hard at work under your cap working to improve the strength and resilience of your hair.
For hair transplant patients, we use the CapillusRx to maintain non-transplanted hair and keep the hair surrounding the transplanted hair healthy.
HairMax LaserComb and LaserBand
Backed by decades of clinical research, HairMax LaserCombs and LaserBand devices fit seamlessly into busy lifestyles. LaserComb treatment only takes up eight minutes of your day three times a week, and you can see results in as little as 25 weeks. LaserBands incorporate patented hair-parting teeth which allow for optimal laser light delivery to the hair follicles. Treatment takes as little as 90 seconds, three times a week.
Stand-alone Treatment or In Conjunction With Transplant Surgery or Medication
LLLT can be effective by itself, but we also use it 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. Even in the most successful hair transplants, however, there can still be some stubborn and uncooperative follicles which resist regrowth. LLLT can get those reluctant follicles in gear and stimulate growth.
