Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, pill-less and pain-less treatment for both men and women experiencing hair loss. The low level lasers are called “soft” or “cold” lasers, since they do not emit heat, sound, or vibration. Unlike surgical lasers that either vaporize or burn tissue, low level lasers do not generate heat or cause tissue injury.
Rejuvenate Medical Spa is excited to introduce the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser: an in-office system that has perfected this low-level laser energy technology, making hair restoration simple and convenient by allowing its users to sit and relax beneath the device while they receive treatment. The Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation is a pain free treatment solution with no downtime for both women and men experiencing hair thinning or hair loss. Recent medical studies show that low-level laser therapy with the Sunetics Laser produces more dramatic results over shorter periods of time than any other low-energy laser device.
In June 2013, the FDA cleared the Sunetics laser technology for the effective treatment of both male and female pattern hair loss. In FDA clinical trials, 93% of patient subjects treated with low level laser therapy experienced hair regrowth at an average of 22 hairs per square centimeter. Low level laser therapy has demonstrated efficacy in stabilizing hair loss over the entire scalp and proven success at regrowing hair in both the frontal and temporal areas of the scalp, where drugs like Rogaine and Propecia may be less effective.
Clinically-Proven Results from Treatment with Low Level Laser Hair Therapy:
- Accelerates hair growth and regrows hair for 93% of patients.
- Increases blood supply from dermis to hair follicle root.
- Stimulates ~70% of ‘resting’ hairs back into active growth cycle
- Stops the progression of hair loss.
- Increases hair strength and elasticity.
- Augments hair follicles, giving patients fuller, shinier, softer, thicker hair.
- Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
As with most nonsurgical treatments for hair loss, LLLT requires continuing treatments to maintain the improvements. Maintenance could involve once per week treatments at Rejuvenate.
Low level laser therapy is an effective hair loss treatment for both male and female patients suffering from thinning hair and mild to moderate degrees of hair loss. Women often make excellent candidates for low level laser therapy. Unlike males who bald, females typically see a diffuse pattern of scalp hair loss and the laser therapy has demonstrated tremendous success at treating this type of balding, as well as reversing post-partum and post-menopausal hair loss.
Men benefit from LLLT as well, using this therapy as a ‘stand-alone’ drug-less treatment therapy or by combining it with their existing regimen of Propecia and/or Rogaine.
Low Level Light Therapy will not work on men or women whose hair loss is progressed to the point where there is smooth skin baldness where no follicles or vellous hairs are present. As long as there are miniaturized, residual hairs present, there is a very good chance of reversing the miniaturization and stopping future hair loss. An in-person consultation with a specialist at Rejuvenate Medical Spa is essential to determining if low level laser therapy is right for your hair loss needs.
