What is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?

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.

Efficacy and Safety of Low-Level Laser Devices for Hair Growth

Lasers may have once been the domain of science fiction, but today, the powerful light and energy that lasers emit are very real and are used in a wide range of ways in industry – and medicine. In the field of hair restoration, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has proven its value, safety, and effectiveness in strengthening hair and encouraging follicle growth.

At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we have used LLLT devices such as CapillusPro cap, HairMax LaserComb, and HairMax LaserBand with tremendous success. We offer these treatments to all hair loss patients to promote or stabilize hair loss, both as a post-operative adjunct to hair transplant surgery or as stand-alone hair restoration treatment.  

What is Low-Level Laser Therapy?

LLLT nourishes hair by sending pulses of energy into inactive follicles. These pulses “spark” dormant follicles back into a regrowth phase by jump-starting proper circulation and cellular respiration. The hair-stimulating energy is delivered to the scalp through the use of specialized comb, caps, or domes.

After a hair transplant, LLLT helps bring blood, oxygen, and nutrients to balding areas, enhancing the effects of the surgery. Even the most successful hair transplants can face some stubborn and uncooperative follicles which resist regrowth. LLLT can get those reluctant follicles in gear and stimulate their growth.

Is LLLT Effective?

Decades of clinical research prove that LLLT works. Researchers who conducted a comprehensive 2016 review of 21 earlier studies involving LLLT devices for the treatment of hair loss concluded that “FDA-cleared LLLT devices are both safe and effective in patients with male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss who did not respond or were not tolerant to standard treatments.”

Is LLLT Safe?

All of the LLLT devices and treatments that we offer at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of hair loss in men and women. None of the many studies performed on LLLT for hair loss have revealed any safety concerns or significant adverse effects.

Non-invasive, unlike surgery, and non-biochemical, unlike medication, LLLT is an attractive hair loss restoration option that you should discuss with an experienced hair loss physician.

Make a Full Head of Hair Your New Year’s ResolutionEvery December 31, the holiday season concludes with promises we make to ourselves about how we’re going to do things differently when the calendar turns to the new year. We’re going to lose weight, start exercising, stop smoking, be more grateful, or make ourselves better in some other way. If you are one of the millions of men and women who experienced hair loss in 2018 (and 2017, 2016, 2015…), consider making 2019 the year that you get back the full, youthful looking head of hair you once had.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we may not be able to turn back time, but we can turn your hair into a source of confidence and pride rather than something to worry about or be embarrassed by.

Hair Loss Prevention Plan: Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Capillus Laser CapNot every hair restoration journey or hair loss prevention plan will involve transplant surgery. While hair transplants are indeed a popular, safe, and effective way to restore hair to a fuller, more youthful appearance, it is not the only option for those battling hair loss. In recent posts, we’ve discussed some of the medications which hundreds of thousands of people use every year to prevent further hair loss or even grow new hair. But medication is not the only alternative to surgery. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer patients a safe, effective, non-surgical treatment that involves the use of specialized energy and light to stimulate hair growth.

What is Low-Level Laser Therapy?

Low-level laser therapy, also called LLLT, 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 the use of specialized comb, caps, or domes. All three of these delivery systems are effective and non-invasive, but one of them offers superior ease and convenience.

Laser domes are professional pieces of equipment, so a visit to the doctor is required to receive such treatment. While laser combs can be used at home, the application and use of the comb can be cumbersome and time-consuming.

Laser caps, however, could not be easier to use. They are portable, hands-free, and they work.

The Hair Transplant Institute of Miami offers the Capillus272 laser cap, a device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Capillus272 caps have 272 professional-strength lasers to make it the most useful at-home device for thinning hair.

The Capillus272 cap can be worn anywhere without disrupting your routine. Better still, it won’t disrupt your appearance: the battery-operated laser insert can fit discreetly inside your favorite hat or baseball cap. While you are living your life, the lasers will be hard at work under your cap, strengthening your follicles and improving the quality 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. 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 their growth.

How to Grow Fuller Hair with Stem Cell Hair Therapy

Researchers Succeed in Growing Hair From Embryonic Stem CellsOur bodies are finely-tuned, intricate machines. Like all machines, they need regular maintenance and occasional repair. Stem cells are the all-purpose handymen of our bodies, available to help restore healthy functioning throughout, including the hair and scalp. Full heads of hair are the result of hair follicles which are constantly regenerating, due in part to the presence of stem cells. But when those stem cells shrink and deteriorate as we age, hair stops renewing and ultimately falls out. That’s why reintroducing an individual’s own stem cell back to the follicles has the potential to create a nourishing environment which may foster regrowth and fight the battle against hair loss.

That is why stem cell therapy for hair loss has become an increasingly popular treatment.

What Does Stem Cell Treatment for Hair Loss Involve?

Safe and effective, the minimally invasive stem cell procedure involves isolating a few ounces of adult stem cells from fat in the abdomen, flanks, or love handles and reintroducing them to the scalp.

Those fat cells are removed from the midsection using a “mini” liposuction procedure. Prior to this approximately 20-minute-long outpatient procedure, a mild oral sedative and local anesthesia is administered, minimizing any pain or discomfort.

Following the liposuction, the medical professionals performing the procedure will isolate the stem cells while you rest. Once isolated, they will then be injected into targeted areas of the scalp, where they will begin their work stimulating hair growth.

What Happens After the Treatment?

The whole treatment process should last approximately three hours. As an outpatient procedure, you will be able to go home shortly thereafter. However, since you will have been under mild sedation, you should arrange for someone else to drive you home. While you may experience some mild soreness after the procedure, you should be able to go back to work the next day.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

It may take a few months before you notice any results, and as this is a relatively new procedure, it is not yet clear how long results will last. However, the team at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami is optimistic of long-term hair regrowth potential, particularly with ongoing treatment. Stem cell treatment can be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, topical treatments or low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to increase your odds of success.

To consult with Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose about whether Miami stem cell treatment may be right for you, call our office at 305-925-0222 or contact us online to book your appointment.  

Can You Prevent Male Pattern Baldness?

prevent male pattern baldnessMany individuals are concerned about going bald later in life. To some degree, male pattern baldness (MPB) affects two-thirds of men by the time they reach age 35. By age 50, around 85 percent suffer noticeable thinning or balding. The odds of developing hair loss at an older age are high – so what can you do to prevent male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia?

Androgenic alopecia is an often devastating and emotionally grim condition to cope with, despite how prevalent it is among men today. Although certain medications, immune problems, cancer treatments and traumas can cause hair loss, male-pattern baldness is hereditary. Those who experience MPB have follicles that are inherently sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a byproduct of testosterone that causes hair follicles to miniaturize. Once these follicles shrink to a severe extent, regrowth is challenging. But, early intervention can slow or stop the miniaturization process altogether.

Consider the following treatments which can help prevent male pattern baldness progression.

Minimize Your Stress

Although you can’t change your genetics, you can adapt your lifestyle to avoid circumstances that exacerbate hair loss. Serious stress or emotional trauma can render hair follicles inactive. Unlike normal hair growth, more hairs enter the resting phase (catagen) at once and fall out (exogen) in larger numbers about three months following a tense event. If you’re already predisposed to male pattern baldness, high stress interferes with whatever partial hair growth remains. Managing anxiety through meditation and a healthy work-life balance lessens your odds of abrupt shedding. Trying to prevent male pattern baldness from escalating is a stressful situation alone. If you already suffer from noticeable hair loss, seeking treatment early on reduces negative emotions by restoring self-confidence.  

Improve Your Physical Health

Changing your diet and starting an exercise regimen has a profound impact on your internal health, which can help prevent male pattern baldness severity. Studies show that older men with a higher cardiorespiratory fitness level release almost half as much cortisol as men who aren’t in healthy form.¹ Cortisol is the stress hormone believed to be linked with sudden hair shedding. When it comes to non-hereditary hair loss – which can strike alongside male pattern baldness and make matters worse – maintaining healthy hormone levels with exercise and good nutrition can enable healthy growth.

Create a Better Environment for Hair Growth

Low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, is a non-invasive technique used to stimulate underactive hair follicles. Through phototherapy, laser diodes interact with the scalp to promote better blood flow, helping follicles function properly. In some instances, LLLT helps prevent male pattern baldness from advancing. At-home laser caps can be used alongside other hair loss treatments, including prescriptions and topical foams. LLLT can also be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery to reduce inflammation and nourish follicles for better results. Hair is stronger, thicker and more resilient to everyday damage.

Despite your genetics, hair loss does not have to become your destiny. To learn more about how to prevent male pattern baldness from worsening, or to discuss treatment options, call the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami at 305-925-0222. Through understanding, education and highly-effective treatment methods, we are determined to help patients attain a fuller head of hair and positive outlook on life.

The Emotional Toll of Female Hair Loss

female hair lossAlmost 40 percent of all hair loss sufferers are women. Despite the astounding statistics, male pattern baldness is more commonly discussed – and aesthetically accepted – than female hair loss. Famous actors like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel make balding look fashionable. Women, on the other hand, rarely opt to shave their scalps, even while suffering with thinning or shedding locks. Instead, female hair loss sufferers are left with widening parts, limp locks and a diminished sense of self-confidence.

Men who suffer from hair loss can certainly suffer a blow to their self-esteem. For women, who often favor long and thick hairstyles, hair loss adds further psychological and emotional damage. Hopefully, better education and widespread discussion can normalize female hair loss and help patients find comfort in knowing they aren’t alone – and that treatment is available.

How Does Female Hair Loss Occur?

Female hair loss due to androgenic alopecia transpires due to the miniaturization of hair follicles, which causes strands to appear shorter, thinner or more delicate and prone to breakage. Over time, miniaturization encourages hair follicles to discontinue production, thus limiting the overall active follicle count on the scalp. Genetic hair loss in women rarely results in total baldness. Women who suffer from total baldness may have alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder, or chemotherapy-induced hair loss.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, female pattern hair loss (FPHL) affects roughly 30 million American women. Female pattern baldness is the most prevalent cause of progressive hair loss in women. The symptoms of FPHL are a widening part and thinning crown, generally differing from the receding hairline seen in male patients.

Like male pattern baldness, female hair loss is understood to be a genetically predetermined condition. But, other risk factors include the following:

Underlying Illness

Lupus, anemia, diabetes, ringworm, polycystic ovary syndrome and thyroid dysfunction are all commonly associated with hair loss, which is why visiting a hair loss specialist or physician to diagnose your condition is critical. Hair loss is often the first sign of a more serious illness, so ruling out other motivating medical conditions helps physicians determine ideal treatment options while minimizing further health damage. 

Menopause, Pregnancy or Post-Partum

Hair loss due to aging can worsen with menopause, particularly when considering the massive hormonal changes during the change of life. Estrogen levels fall during menopause around age 50, frequently manifesting as thinning or shedding on the scalp. Similarly, women who are pregnant or who have just given birth might experience hair loss due to hormonal shifts.

Stress

After a traumatic event like a death in the family or job loss, hair loss is common. When your body undergoes severe emotional shock, normal functions like hair growth are put on the back burner. In fact, serious distress “shocks” follicles into a resting state, which means they aren’t active to produce replacement strands after ordinary shedding. Stress-induced hair loss is known as telogen effluvium (TE) and can resolve itself, assuming anxiety and tension dissipates. 

Poor Nutrition

Eating too little to lose weight fast often means you miss out on key nutrients that keep the body functioning. Hair follicles require proper nutrition to function, and eliminating these from your diet can harm the growth cycle. If you see hair loss while dieting, consult a nutritionist to review your caloric needs, current intake and dietary recommendations.

 

Women’s hair loss is treatable. Early detection helps increase your odds of reversing follicle miniaturization and regaining a healthy, full head of hair. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, patients suffering from female hair loss can undergo both low-level laser therapy or hair restoration surgery, depending on individual candidacy and hair loss patterns. To schedule a consultation to diagnose your hair loss condition and move forward with treatment, reach out to us at 305-925-0222.

Hair Transplant Myths, Debunked

Does Balding Negatively Affect Work Life?Contrary to popular belief, hair transplant surgeries are not as obvious as they were in the past. Long gone are the days of obvious hair plugs and embarrassing surgical scars. With modern technology and advancements in the field, hair restoration surgery can be done under minimally invasive conditions for streamlined and natural-looking results.

Although hair transplants are increasingly popular among patients suffering from male pattern baldness and other hair loss conditions, there are still many falsities and misconceptions about the practice. In order to debunk some of these hair transplant myths, consider how we’ve helped revamp the practice:

  1. Scars are Obvious

While linear scars were more noticeable in the early days of hair transplant surgery, technology has helped the professionals eliminate obvious post-surgical blemishes. Nowadays, patients may see light scarring that is easily covered when hair at the donor site regrows. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, our surgeons make minimal scarring a priority in strip donor procedures. Dr. Paul Rose developed the Ledge Closure technique which helps direct hair at the wound site to grow through the scar line, virtually concealing any indications of a past surgery. This leaves patients happier with their overall results and more confident in showing off their fuller locks.

  1. Surgery = Plugs

Hair transplant surgery received a poor reputation in its early stages, when procedures worked to fill in balding but often resulted in an obvious plug-like look. Today, however, hair plugs are a thing of the past. We’ve replaced these former practices with advanced procedures that leave virtually no signs of transplant, just natural-looking regrowth. In fact, hair transplants are barely recognizable among the general public, so you can stay discreet with your hair loss history. In a 2010 study from the International Society of Hair Restoration, 85 percent of Americans could not identify a hair transplant patient.

  1. The Process is Painful

Most hair transplants do not involve much pain and only require local anesthesia to numb the surgical site. Some patients experience discomfort during the injections, but much of the ache is relieved by an oral sedative. Once the scalp is numb, patients won’t feel much of anything during the procedure itself. After the surgery, taking care of your scalp carefully for optimal results is key. Brushing or washing vigorously can damage the natural scabbing process, so be as gentle as possible in the few days following surgery. With follicular unit grafting, our surgeons shampoo and check healing the day after surgery. Overall, healing time can vary by person and individual health factors. Typically, patients are ready to be out and about a week after the operation with no discomfort. If you have a big event approaching, try to schedule your hair transplant surgery at least one month in advance to ensure scabbing and swelling has time to subside. 

Hair restoration is still a nuanced field and many patients don’t know what to expect in the early stages. But, for qualified candidates, new technologies make transplants relatively easy, effective and discreet. To schedule your consultation and determine if you can benefit from hair transplant surgery, contact the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami at 305-925-0222.

Hair Loss: New Treatment Options

Hair Loss: New Treatment OptionsIn the world of hair loss, new treatment options are one of the most widely publicized topics. Often discussed hand in hand with ground breaking research, new hair loss treatments are continuously developed and researched in a tireless effort to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

Hair Loss: New Treatment in 2016

So, what are the newest hair loss treatment options to watch for in 2016? Browse the treatments below for expert insight on the year’s biggest trends in hair restoration.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP). Although this treatment has been around for few years, physicians are now using PRP in conjunction with other hair loss treatments to improve overall outcomes. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, PRP is often used to improve surgical hair restoration procedures, like Mosaic® Hair Restoration.

Mosaic® Hair Restoration. ISHRS Golden Follicle award winning surgeons, Drs. Nusbaum and Rose, have developed a patented method of hair restoration that ensures the best possible transplant result by identifying and recreating each patient’s unique follicular pattern in the restoration area. To learn more about Mosaic® Hair Restoration, visit this page on hair restoration techniques.

Laser Therapy. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a new approach to non-surgical hair restoration that utilizes safe, medical-grade laser light to increase blood flow across the entire scalp. By increasing blood flow, LLLT can improve oxygen availability within the hair follicle. Our clinic is pleased to offer laser therapy with Capillus272™ Pro, a FDA cleared laser therapy cap that can be used at home and while on-the-go.

Stem Cell Treatment. Stem cell treatments are done as an outpatient with local anesthesia and a mild oral sedative. A small liposuction procedure is performed on the belly, flanks or “love handles” to obtain the patient’s own fat. A special process is used to isolate and concentrate the stem cells from the fat and these are then injected into the scalp.

Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

Androgenetic Alopecia in WomenAndrogenetic alopecia in women is common. Although many people think of men when they hear “pattern baldness,” androgenetic alopecia can be just as devastating to a woman’s sense of image, confidence, and self esteem. It is estimated that androgenetic alopecia affects 20 million women in the United States, though the number might actually be close to 30 million. Androgenetic alopecia causes women to lose their hair in a diffuse manner, meaning that hair begins to thin and shed uniformly across the scalp.

Classification of Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

To classify androgenetic alopecia in women, physicians use a scale known as the Ludwig Classification. This scale categorizes female hair loss according to 3 unique stages: Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3. View the Ludwig Classification chart and learn more about each classification of female hair loss by visiting the following article, Ludwig Classification: Diagnosing Female Hair Loss.

Female Androgenetic Alopecia Prevention

For men, pattern baldness follows a somewhat predictable pattern that begins with shedding in the frontal hairline. This leads to more pronounced hair loss across the top of the head, and finally toward the crown. Androgenetic alopecia in women progresses differently than in men, however. For women, androgenetic alopecia may be undetectable for quite some time. Because the condition usually affects the entire scalp at once, it can be hard to tell when hair loss first begins. Luckily, there are warning signs to look for.

Know the signs of androgenetic alopecia in women. Visit this Free Infographic: A Guide to Hair Loss Prevention for Women to learn 4 warning signs that hair loss is happening.  

 

Androgenetic Alopecia: Specialized Treatment for Women

Female hair loss is unique, and there are two standout treatments that every woman should consider when taking up the fight against androgenetic alopecia. The first is topical hair loss foam. Called Minoxidil, this treatment is perhaps best known by the brand name Rogaine®. The foam must be applied directly to the scalp twice daily, or as otherwise advised by a hair loss professional. Many women find this to be a chore, which has led many to try a new method of treatment called low level laser therapy (LLLT).

Treating Androgenetic Alopecia with Laser Therapy

Low level laser therapy has been proven effective in clinical studies. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two options for this new approach to hair loss prevention. In the office, patients may experience laser therapy with the Capillus272™ OfficePro. Patients may also enjoy LLLT treatment in the privacy of their own home with the Capillus272™ Pro laser cap. Both products are cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in women. In independently reviewed clinical trials, Capillus® technology produced 51% increase in hair count among participants (study made available on ClinicalTrials.gov).

If you experience hair loss, you are not alone. Take control of your hair and experience thicker, fuller looking hair with a personalized approach to hair restoration at Miami Hair. All evaluations and treatment programs are conducted by Drs. Bernard Nusbaum and Paul Rose, two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeons with more than 40 years combined experience in the field.
