How does laser hair therapy work?

Laser hair therapy is most advanced hair restoration technique available. It’s a great treatment for thinning hair and hair loss, and it’s a great for accompanying and supporting other forms of hair restoration. Not only can it help you grow thicker, fuller hair, but it can also help you regrow lost hair if your hair follicles are still alive.

Laser hair therapy uses a low level laser to stimulate hair. This beam of laser is effective at stimulating blood flow to the scalp, increasing blood to follicles and encouraging hair to grow thicker or re-grow. Laser hair procedures generally take between 15 and 30 minutes on average three times per week and can, in some cases, be performed at home.

Does Laser Hair Therapy Hurt?

No. Laser hair therapy is a painless, non-invasive procedure that does not hurt or burn. This therapy utilizes a low level laser light is the compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. This means there is no burning or pain involved.
