Laser Hair Therapy
Definition - What does Laser Hair Therapy mean?
Laser hair therapy, also known as red light, cold laser, soft laser, bio-stimulation or photobiomodulation therapy, is a non-invasive hair loss treatment which uses cold laser technology to stimulate hair growth. Laser hair therapy uses low level lasers to stimulate hair follicle cells, re-energizing them, making old or damaged cells more active which all promotes positive hair growth.
TheConsultation explains Laser Hair Therapy
Laser Hair Therapy is used to fight reducing hair lines, pattern baldness, and hair loss caused both by aging and illness in both men and women. The treatment is non-invasive and painless. Laser hair therapy entails the implementation of low level laser therapy to stimulate hair growth by energizing hair follicle cells.
Low level energy lasers differ from medical lasers by using a low frequency of red and near infra-red light which don’t heat up the tissue, which is why they are referred to as “cold lasers”. The light emitted by the low level lasers is absorbed by the cells which increases cellular energy production. This is believed to stimulate hair growth. Research done on the topic is inconclusive, and it is yet not proven how effective laser hair therapy is.
While many have benefited from the treatments, laser hair therapy does not resolve hair loss which is a symptom of a deeper issue such as iron deficiency, thyroid problems or similar conditions.
