Effects of Low Level Laser Therapy

The physics of laser light, along with its known properties, led the way to a practical application for low energy lasers in medicine. Various studies have confirmed these properties on the living organism. Taken together, the data points to the following effects of low level laser light on the scalp:

  • Increased scalp blood flow and microcirculation by 20-30%
  • Increases nutrient supply to enhance hair growth
  • Stimulates and accelerates hair growth
  • Stops the progression of hair loss
  • Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
  • Reduces excess levels of skin 5 alpha reductase and DHT which contribute to genetic thinning
  • Relieves scalp conditions such as psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, itchy/scaling scalp (anti-inflammatory properties)
  • Normalizes sebum production (also increases production in under activity and dryness and decreases production in over activity or greasiness
  • Reduces tight, tender scalp

Theses effects also make LLLT excellent adjunct therapy for pre-operative and post-operative Hair Restoration procedures.
