What are low-level laser caps?
Low-level laser caps are innovative devices designed to promote hair growth using low-level laser therapy (LLLT). The caps contain medical-grade lasers and LEDs that emit controlled light energy.
This allows the caps to target your hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissue. This noninvasive technology is a good option for patients seeking an effective solution for hair loss without surgery or medication.
How do low-level laser caps work?
Low-level laser therapy stimulates cellular activity within your hair follicles, enhancing blood flow and providing the cells with more energy. This process revives the follicles, encouraging them to enter the growth phase, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.
Based on the principle of photobiomodulation, this treatment describes the use of specific wavelengths of light interacting with the cellular structure to promote cellular activity.
LLLT also stimulates blood flow to the treatment area, supporting hair growth and encouraging thicker, healthier strand development.
What can I expect from LLLT?
A session with a low-level laser cap is painless and relaxing. Clients wear the laser cap for a predetermined amount of time, usually 15-30 minutes, while seated comfortably at Honest Hair Restoration.
Some individuals even prefer to read a book or enjoy a soothing cup of tea during the session. Since the lasers operate at low levels, there is no sensation of heat or discomfort.
Results vary from person-to-person, and consistent treatment over a series of weeks or months is essential to achieve optimal hair restoration. Many clients notice a decrease in hair shedding within a few weeks, followed by gradual regrowth and thickening of the hair.
Dr. Maag works with you to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals, ensuring you receive the best possible results.
Am I a candidate for hair restoration with LLLT?
Low-level laser caps are suitable for both men and women experiencing different stages of hair loss. Signs that you might be a candidate for this treatment include:
- Gradual thinning of hair on top of the head
- Receding hairline
- Generalized thinning across the scalp
It's essential to consult with an experienced provider like Dr. Maag to determine if low-level laser therapy is the right choice for you. A thorough evaluation of your hair loss pattern, medical history, and expectations will guide the decision-making process.
