Low Level Laser Therapy for Hair Growth
FACING HAIR LOSS PROBLEMS?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE…
Over 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by age 35 and 65% by age 60. In the United States alone, hair loss affects about 40 million men and 20 million women.
On the average, the human head has about 100,000
hair follicles. Each follicle can grow about 20
individual hairs in a person’s lifetime. Most people lose about 50 – 100 strands a day. Once a hair is shed, the growth stage begins as new hair from the same follicle replaces the shed hair. Hair loss occurs when the rate of shedding exceeds the rate of
re-growth; when new hair is thinner than the hair shed or when the hair falls out in patches.
HAIR LOSS IN MEN
Male-pattern baldness (also known as Androgenetic
Alopecia) represents about 90% of all hair loss.
Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. DHT slows down hair production and causes a shrinking effect on the hair follicles to be shorter and finer until the hair eventually falls out. The hairline recedes over time and forms a
characteristic “M” shape pattern of hair loss with thinning at the crown (near the top of the head), progressing to partial or complete baldness.
HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
Female hair loss usually occurs in more than one pattern. Unlike men, Androgenetic Alopecia usually affects women much later in life. Majority of women have diffusing thinning over all areas of the scalp, with the front temporal hairline remaining intact. Another common type of hair loss is Telogen Effluvium, which occurs
2 – 4 months after childbirth or from acute illness, crash dieting, physical and emotional stress. As women tend to have less obvious hair
loss patterns compared to men, diagnosis of hair loss in women should preferably be made by a medical professional.
THE HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
Hair grows in repeated cycles of three phases. Normally up to 90% of the hair follicles is in anagen phase.
Phase 1 – Anagen (Growth Phase)
Anagen is the growing phase of hair. The process can vary from two to six years. During anagen phase, hair cells multiply rapidly and the hair shaft grows approximately 10cm per year.
Phase 2 – Catagen (Transitional Phase)
Catagen phase can last for about one to two weeks. It is called “transitional” phase as the hair stop growing and before the telogen/resting phase begins.
Phase 3 – Telogen (Resting Phase)
Telogen phase last about three months. During telogen phase, the hair does not grow. These old hair will be shed naturally or may be pulled out when we shampoo or comb hair. At the end of Telogen phase, the hair follicles
re-enters the anagen phase and new hair begins to grow
from the hair follicles.
HOW DOES LLLT WORK?
Hair has a life cycle in which
growth only takes place during the
anagen phase. According to
research, LLLT’s photobiogenesis
therapy induces dormant hair
follicles into the anagen phase. The
stimulation generates growth of a
more vital, robust hair than scalp
follicles cangenerate on its own. This treatment is clinically and scientifically proven to safely and effectively stimulate cellular
metabolism, protein synthesis and regenerate tissues while increasing blood flow. Visible results occur within weeks.
Low Level Laser Therapy is clinically proven to increase blood flow within the nourishing cells of the scalp by 54%.
