New Bedford Laser Therapy: Hair Loss Treatments That Work

laser-therapyLike many Americans, there are a lot of people in the South Coast region who are looking for a remedy for hair loss that works. While there are a lot of “as seen on TV” products and over-the-counter remedies that can be purchased, most people will tell you that they haven’t gotten great results by taking that course of action. If you are looking for an FDA approved hair loss treatment that will actually give you the results you desire, consider coming to South Coast Hair Options and see if you are a candidate for our local New Bedford laser hair therapy treatment.

Every Client Requires a Unique Approach
There are many different reasons why people experience hair loss throughout their lives. For some, it’s a result of a traumatic or particularly stressful situation. For others, such as those who suffer from male pattern baldness, there are other causes. It is important to go to a clinic that will provide you with a diagnosis for your hair loss before prescribing a treatment. Not every treatment works for every type of hair loss. Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT is one of those types of hair loss treatments that work, as long as it is applied to a patient that suffers from the type of hair loss that will benefit from it the most.

What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Also known in the industry as “red light” therapy, “cold laser” treatments, “soft laser” therapy, biostimulation and photobiomodulation, Low Level Laser Therapy is an FDA approved hair loss treatment that has been shown to be effective with genetic forms of hair loss. It is effective in both men and women. Our New Bedford laser hair therapy has been proven to work with pattern balding or androgenetic alopecia.

What Is Androgenetic Alopecia?
According to studies, androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern balding and female pattern balding as it it known by most people, affects up to 70 percent of men and 40 percent of women at some point in their lifetime. Women will exhibit a unique pattern of hair thinning over the top of their scalps, usually where a part would be at the center of their heads. Men, on the other hand, typically see a pattern of balding along the hairline, a pattern that is often known as a “receding” hairline.

Low Level Laser Therapy is now seen as a proven remedy for hair loss with clients who have this type of pattern baldness hair loss. It is an FDA approved hair loss treatment that has been proven to work as effectively as minoxidil. It is even as beneficial as hair transplantation, without all of the surgical concerns and side effects. The type of laser therapy that is used by professionals to treat hair loss, such as the local New Bedford laser hair therapy at South Coast Hair Options, uses a low level laser that penetrates the scalp. Not a high powered “hot” laser that can cut or melt things, but a “cold” laser that has a low level of red light that is used to stimulate cells as a remedy for hair loss.

How Does It Work?
As we have discussed in previous articles, there are three phases in the hair growth cycle, the growth phase, the resting phase and the shedding phase. Low level laser therapy increases blood flow within the scalp to stimulate the metabolism in the hair follicles that are in the resting and shedding phase. Scientists believe that this stimulation results in the production of “anagen” or growth phase hair, causing it to get out of a dormant state and begin growing again. While there are many different views on how LLLT works, most clinical specialists have agreed that this is definitely one of the hair loss treatments that work, which is why laser therapy is now an FDA approved hair loss treatment.

Some of the benefits associated with laser hair therapy include:

  • completely painless therapy
  • zero adverse side effects have been reported in study after study and in actual use
  • the cost to apply this type of therapy is inexpensive compared to other treatments
  • does not require a lot of time to begin seeing results
  • hair growth can occur anywhere along the hairline or on the top of the head
  • proven to work with both men and women patients
