Low level laser therapy (LLLT) devices are proving to be successful in stimulating new hair growth in men and women who suffer with androgenetic alopecia, or pattern hair loss. In a clinical trial of 122 women and 103 men, an average increase of about 20 terminal hairs per square centimeter of scalp were seen after using the HairMax LaserComb for just 26 weeks*. , available to South Florida residents at Hair Transplant Institute of Miami.
The results were produced by a randomized, double-blind study. Neither participants nor administrators knew the critical aspects of the study under such quality controls, nearly eliminating both experimenter bias and potential placebo effect.
pattern hair loss is actually a chronic dermatologic disorder (of the skin). Leading research indicates that pattern baldness stems from hair follicle miniaturization, a phenomenon thought to be caused by hormonal imbalance and increase production of DHT. This condition causes hair follicles to shrink over time, eventually becoming unable to sustain natural hair growth.
Most recently, low level laser therapy (LLLT) devices have received acclaim from hair restoration surgeons and patients alike for their safe, non-surgical, and convenient approach to treating pattern baldness. LLLT devices are designed to reawaken dormant or “miniaturized” hair follicles through photobiomodulation, a biological process that induces cellular activity, repair, and growth. When applied to the scalp, this randomized, double-blind study provides the first clinical evidence that laser hair restoration works for both men and women.
