While there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for hair thinning in South Coast Massachusetts, there are many promising options now available for men suffering from male pattern baldness. Laser hair therapy is currently being used as part of the Corrective Hair Solutions (CHS) treatments at South Coast Hair Options in New Bedford. Southeastern Massachusetts laser hair therapy has been proven to stimulate cell metabolism and cause damaged cells to repair themselves. Laser hair therapy sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it engages the long-used principle of low level laser therapy (LLLT) or photo-biotherapy. For those who are not candidates for LLLT treatments, dermal lens hair through Virtual Reality, as well as other therapy options are also used successfully with many clients.
What is Laser Hair Therapy?
A low reactive laser, which is sometimes called a “cold,” “cool,” or “soft” laser, does not have the thermal component that is used in surgical lasers for cutting, burning, or vaporizing tissue. The low level laser hair therapy approach is based on the scientific principle of photo-biotherapy, which can cause beneficial changes in cells to stimulate growth and repair. The correct amount of light energy must be delivered at the appropriate wavelength for the treatment to be successful. So far, studies have shown that Southeastern Massachusetts laser hair therapy has been a successful treatment for hair thinning in South Coast, particularly in clients who require telogen effluvium treatments.
Laser light has the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of skill and be absorbed. The Laser Hair Therapy 5000 device that we use at South Coast Hair Options has 51 diode lasers that are mounted in a half sphere to deliver laser energy into the tissues of the scalp. The laser energy photons are absorbed by deeper cell structures, resulting in a photo-biochemical chain of cellular and sub-cellular events. European studies have clinically proven that this type of hair loss laser treatment stimulates cells, leading to a dramatic increase in micro-circulation of the blood supply, resulting in cessation of hair loss and stimulation of hair re-growth.

Used Since the 1950s, Perfected Today
A variety of different light sources, including lasers, have been used since the 1950s in an attempt to stimulate hair growth and stop the progression of hair loss. The research discovered success in the wavelength range of 280-310 nm in 1969 through experiments on mice. Other studies were conducted between the late 1960s and the mid-1980s, until 1984 when one particular study showed the best response after just six to eight treatments administered twice each week for four weeks. Other achievements were made, increasing hair growth as well as the density of the hair follicle in both male and female patients who suffered from stress alopecia and alopecia areata.
Today laser hair therapy is used on clients as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment, as well as a standalone treatment, depending on their individual needs. It has been successful with both men and women, providing results where other treatments and topical medications have failed. Clients can even use Southeastern Massachusetts laser hair therapy in conjunction with solutions that offer immediate results, such as dermal lens hair through Virtual Reality products. This can be a great way to gain all of the benefits of multiple laser hair therapy treatments while still achieving the desired look and feel without delay.
