Low Level Laser Therapy
What Is Low Level Laser Hair Therapy? (LLLT)
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is non-invasive, non-surgical scientific approach to fighting hair loss. It is effective against multiple levels and types of hair loss including thinning hair, receding hair line, male and female pattern baldness and various scalp issues. LLLT has been rigorously tested for both safety and effectiveness for well over 30 years and has been in use in many countries throughout the world for over 30 years.
LLLT non-surgical cosmetic treatments utilize a laser device which typically has between 110-160 therapeutic soft low level lasers. These lasers deliver light energy directly from the diode covering your head to the hair follicles under the scalp. This is essentially the same principle as that of photo-bio-stimulation; laser light stimulates cell metabolism thereby helping damaged cells to repair themselves. LLLT is a breakthrough technology which has received national attention on newscasts and news journals throughout the country. Many accredited physicians have praised this new technology as an effective treatment for hair loss.
Each laser treatment session lasts 30-minutes, and is given twice a week. (It is necessary to allow one day between your laser treatments.) You will relax in a private treatment room while sitting under the laser listening to relaxing music during the session.
This safe and effective treatment is equally beneficial for men and women, with absolutely no side effects. A maintenance program is recommended after the desired results are attained.

How does it work?
Laser hair therapy uses cool soft laser to deliver light energy to the hair and scalp. This process does 3 main things.
- Clears debris from the hair shaft.
- Swells the cortex and closes the hair cuticle.
- Creates skin balance necessary for normal scalp function, resulting in healthier hair that appears thicker and shinier with added manageability
