Laser Hair Therapy
Laser hair therapy is a breakthrough technology that uses your body’s own ability to grow hair. This safe, effective treatment is painless and has absolutely no side effects if used correctly. It uses a non-thermal, low-level red light that stimulates the scalp and hair. This therapeutic light interacts with your body’s metabolism to produce a fuller, thicker, healthier looking head of hair and enhance the appearance and feel of the hair.
How It Works
Low level lasers “energize” the tissue since light is a form of energy. The most common example of light converting into chemical energy is photosynthesis, where plants are fed via light that is converted into chemical energy. DHT is formed in the bloodstream when an enzyme (5 alpha reductase) interacts with the hormone testosterone and forms a substance called Dihydrotestostrone, or DHT. The problem occurs when DHT is formed in the follicle, narrowing and shortening the hair shaft with each cycle. This continues until the hair follicle no longer produces hair. Therefore, the principle cause of genetic thinning (Androgenetic Alopecia) is DHT. We now have supplements and medication that interrupt the interaction between the enzyme and hormone and reduces the development of DHT. Since DHT is genetically predetermined, a treatment that lowers it will reduce the original cause of the hair loss. While DHT blockers have been around for awhile, the lack of satisfaction with product results has not significantly changed. By the time we take action, we not only want the hair loss to stop, but we also want more hair back. Using these products alone will help, however, adding the laser will accelerate the effect and shorten the timeline.
The Laser Story
In 1964, while working on mice and diabetics with wound healing using low-level laser treatment, Dr. Andre Metser found a density increase in the hair in the treated area. Many years and much research later, the scientific principal of photo-dissimulation indicated that the application of a specific kind of light at the right power and frequency will increase blood flow and cell metabolism, which increases the density and growth rate of hair. Hair cells are photosensitive and fast growing. Laser light has a more dramatic effect on these cells than any other cells in the body. More than a decade of research and development has been done, including clinical case studies and wide use by the public in Europe. In January of 2007, the FDA in America cleared a low-level laser device.
Laser Hair Therapy
No shampoo-ing, styling or combing, and you remain with your present stylist, come to the salon, sit under the laser light for 30 minutes twice a week. Start today, frame your face with your hair, it will give you a younger appearance. This therapy is successful for many men and women; however, individual results will vary. A hair and scalp evaluation will assist in determining the likelihood of success of the treatment. The price of this service is competitive with that of a monthly service for hair weaves or braided extensions. Prices may vary.

This picture on the bottom left hand corner is a picture of myself. I have experienced hair loss due to my condition of DHT. Three things you must undergo for this theraphy is: natural herbal pill, triple x rogaine, and laser hair therapy. These three products will produce a fuller, thicker, healthier looking head of hair and will enhance the appearance as well as texture to the hair.
