Low Level Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an innovative, painless procedure designed for both men and women suffering from hair loss and hair thinning conditions. The procedure involves low level laser beams that are known as ‘soft’ or ‘cold’ lasers because they do not emit any heat, sound, or vibration. Surgical lasers can burn tissue, but low level lasers do not cause any tissue injury.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides an advanced LLLT system called the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser. This is an in-office procedure that can provide a simple and convenient way of hair restoration. The patient can simply sit and relax beneath the treatment device while expert performs the procedure. The Sunetics system allows a pain free treatment and does not involve any down time.

Recent medical research has shown that LLLT with the Sunetics laser system can lead to more effective outcomes over a shorter period of time as compared with any other low energy laser equipment. Rejuvenate med spa offers this innovative non-surgical hair restoration treatment as well as various other advanced anti-aging solutions to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations.

Suitable Candidates

Both men and women who may be concerned about their condition of thinning hair and mild to moderate level of hair loss may consider low level laser therapy. Women typically make sterling candidates for this procedure. Unlike the male pattern baldness, the hair loss in women is usually more diffused across the scalp.

Laser therapy has shown highly encouraging results in the treatment of this type of balding. It is also helpful in reversing hair loss that may have been caused as post-partum and post-menopausal conditions. Men can also benefit from LLLT, whether employing it as a stand-alone procedure or combining it with another regimen of Rogaine or Propecia.

Cleared by the FDA

Sunetics laser technology received clearance from the FDA in 2013 for the treatment of both male and female pattern hair loss. Clinical trials for the FDA showed that 93 percent of the patients treated with LLLT experienced hair re-growth at an average of 22 hairs per square centimeter.

LLLT has shown to be effective in stabilizing hair loss across the scalp and demonstrated successful results in re-growing hair in both frontal and temporal areas of the scalp. These are the areas where common drug therapies such as Propecia or Rogaine may not have show very satisfactory results.
