Ensuring even better, faster results, we use the newer, more advanced LaserTek 5000
The Principle of Low Level Laser Therapy or photo-biotherapy is as old as sunlight itself. Harnessing and refining the therapy with low reactive laser, like LaserTek 5000, is relatively new. Low level lasers are “soft” lasers, often referred to as “cold” lasers, and do not have the thermal-component to cut, burn or vaporize tissue. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is based on the scientific principal of photo biotherapy. Photo-biotherapy occurs when laser light is absorbed by cells stimulating cell metabolism and causing damaged cells to repair themselves. Photo-biochemical changes in cells can only be achieved with the correct amount of light energy, delivered at the appropriate wavelength. According to laser researcher, Dr. David G. Williams, “Low Level Laser Therapy, or LLLT, is a miraculous healing tool used for telogen effluvium treatments.
Light Energy Explained
Normal white light produces a thermal effect in the skin. This is due to its relatively high-energy output, with a large share of its light in the infrared spectrum being absorbed by the water in the outer cell structures. Laser light, with one specific wavelength, penetrates deep into the layers of skin and is absorbed, provoking a photo-biochemical chain reaction. The Laser Hair Therapy 5000 device has 51 diode lasers mounted in a half sphere, delivering laser energy to the tissues of the scalp. Laser energy (photons), penetrate deep into these tissues and are absorbed by deeper cell structures, resulting in a photo-biochemical chain of cellular and sub-cellular events. Hair loss laser treatment is clinically proven in European studies to stimulate these cellular and sub-cellular events, leading to a dramatic increase in micro-circulation of blood supplies, cessation of hair loss and stimulation of hair re-growth.
