LED and LLLT Hair Restoration Therapy
Laser Hair Restoration is designed to increase circulation to the capillaries and scalp area, restoring the health of hair follicles. Light therapy on scalp and hair follicles works by providing high levels of life-giving light which is used by the cells in the scalp and hair to assist the cells in performing their normal chemical processes, thus re-polarizing and rejuvenating damaged cells, allowing them to gain oxygen and eliminate waste products . The overall effectiveness of this type of hair restoration depends on the wavelength of light produced by the light. Computer-programmed LED and Low-Level Laser Light therapies (LLLT) at red light or near red light frequencies improve blood circulation and nutrient delivery to the hair follicles in the scalp, thereby counteracting the effect of testosterone.
It should be noted, however, that light therapy is not a cure for baldness. While it has shown promise for treating thinning hair, once a hair follicle is completely dead, no amount of therapy will magically regenerate it from nothing. That’s why, if one is to choose light therapy, it’s best to start treatments sooner rather than later, when the condition is still reversible. For this reason Dr Poon combines lasers and light source therapies with the FUE method to gain the most effective results.
