At Natural Restorations, we have many tools in our belt to ward off hair loss and to help you keep, strengthen, and thicken your hair. We’ve touched on medical and topical therapies on other blog posts. Well, if PRP is your own personal hair fertilizer, then this laser light is juuuuust the right kind of sunshine… 650 nanometers of cool red light, to be precise.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been known to promote hair growth for over 50 years.  The laser penetrates your skin and stimulates your follicles, causing them to produce thicker, stronger hairs. It has several mechanisms of action that are efficacious for improving scalp health and hair growth, the most impressive being its inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase, which is the enzyme that converts testosterone to the follicle-killing hormone DHT. It can also stimulate and re-energize the mitochondria, or the “power houses,” of your cells, causing them to reproduce and function the way they were meant to. It boosts oxygenation to every cell of the scalp and dilates blood vessels to improve circulation to the scalp, allowing for healthier hair follicles that produce more and stronger hair.

In men and women, LLLT works best on thinning hair.  It will not cause hair growth in areas of “slick baldness” where the follicles have quit growing.  When used along with medical therapy and PRP, it can be a very effective tool to slow your hair loss progression and to thicken areas of the scalp where thinning has occurred.

The Laser device insert can be used in any hat, but it also comes with a cap for you to use. Plan to wear the cap for 30 minutes, 3 times per week, never on successive days. M-W-F works best for me.  It’s easy to remember and I often wear it while answering emails. It has a rechargeable battery pack, so you aren’t tethered to a wall outlet to use it. If you spend 30 minutes in traffic you can take it with you and turn that wasted time into valuable hair-growing time.

Until recent years, devices strong enough to be effective were only available for use at doctor’s offices.  But now at-home models are available and the prices have come down tremendously.  When searching for an at-home LLLT device, look for one with laser diodes (rather than LED’s).  At Natural Restorations, we offer LaserCap® brand devices because they are the only LLLT device made in America from the diodes up.  They come with a Lifetime Warranty and Customer Service is available over the phone 24hrs a day.  LaserCap® is only available from a doctor.
