How does Laser Hair Restoration Work?

How does Laser Hair Restoration Work? | Los Angeles | Sherman Oaks Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has emerged as a popular hair restoration procedure today. LLLT is a completely non-invasive med spa procedure involving no cuts, incisions, injections, or medications. Both men and women who are suffering from hair loss can benefit from this painless treatment. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier provider of LLLT and various other procedures. The medical spa provides LLLT for hair restoration to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding locations.  

How does it Work?

LLLT is based on a treatment with “cold” or “soft” lasers to stimulate hair re-growth in the targeted areas of the scalp. These low level lasers do not emit heat, sound or vibration. As a result, it does not cause any tissue injury because of absence of heat. Many patients prefer this gentle med spa solution over surgical lasers or other aggressive hair restoration treatments. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is equipped with the state of the art Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser. This is an in-office procedure, which provides total comfort and convenience to the patients. The patient can simply sit and relax beneath the device while the treatment is performed. The procedure is painless and involves no downtime. Some of the latest medical studies have revealed that low level laser therapy with the Sunetics Laser system produces more pronounced outcomes over shorter periods of time than other low energy laser techniques. Dr. Farah’s medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for LLLT.  

Safe and Proven

The Sunetics laser technology for the treatment of both male and female pattern hair loss received clearance from the FDA in 2013. In the FDA clinical trials, 93 percent of the patients treated with LLLT experienced hair re-growth at an average of 22 hairs per square centimeter. The efficacy of this therapy has been proven in stabilizing hair loss over the entire scalp and re-growing hair in the both the frontal and temporal areas of the scalp. Clinically proven outcomes with LLLT include:
  • Re-growth of hair and acceleration of hair growth in 93 percent of the patients
  • Increase in blood flow from dermis to hair follicle root
  • Stimulation of up to 70 percent of resting or dormant hairs back into active growth cycle
  • Halting the progression of hair loss
  • Improved hair elasticity and strength
  • Augmenting hair follicles to provide fuller, thicker, softer, and shinier hair
  • Repairing and improving hair shaft quality
Patients should note that as with most other non-invasive hair loss treatments, LLLT requires periodic follow-up procedures to maintain the results. Maintenance sessions could involve weekly treatments initially, but the frequency would reduce over time.  


LLLT is an effective solution for both men and women suffering from thinning hair and mild to moderate degrees of hair loss. Women typically make standout candidates for this procedure. Men may use this therapy independently or in conjunction with other treatments.
