What is hair bio-stimulation?

Hair bio-stimulation using low level laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive option for hair restoration. It uses laser diodes that emit low level laser light (LLLT) to stimulate blood circulation and lymph circulation at the hair roots. It is proven to decrease inflammation and improve cellular metabolism and protein synthesis in hair follicles.

Significant studies have been done on low level laser therapy for the scalp and hair. Results are usually visible between 2-6 months.

 

How is the treatment performed?

The patient being treated sits under the laser unit while the unit delivers phototherapy to the scalp. It is comfortable and painless. Treatment time ranges from 15 to 30mins. The interval between sessions are recommended to be weekly initially and may be longer once the patient’s hair fall has stabilized.

 

The diodes emit visible red light and patients will usually be asked to wear goggles to for eye protection. The light however does not harm the skin nor scalp, as they are configured at low therapeutic levels. The light energy will be absorbed by the cells and stimulate healing and cell repair.

 

Who are the best candidates for bio-stimulation hair laser therapy?

  • Men and women in early stages of hair thinning
  • Men and women experiencing hair fall
  • Individuals using other hair restoration methods such as minoxidil and propecia
  • Post-chemotherapy patients who wish to reactivate their hair follicles

 

What is the price of bio-stimulation hair laser therapy?

Bio-stimulation for hair loss ranges from $200 to $250 per session. Hair centers typically give better prices when treatments are purchased in a program of 3, 6 or 12 months.

SOCIETY OF HAIR RESTORATION SURGEONS MEETING 2008

Seven Subjects: Male & Female Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) Patients

Average Hair Counts (terminal=16, Vellus=14)

  • After 3 months TX = 8.57% average of fewer vellus hairs
  • 5 of 7 had fewer vellus hairs
  • After 3 months TX = 7.57% increase of terminal hair
  • 4 of 7 increase in terminal hair count

Harvard Study

  • Increased Cellular stimulation
  • Increased cellular repair and ATP production
  • Increased oxygen uptake
  • Reduction of follicular swelling

 

International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology

  • In a clinical study published in International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology (Volume 5, Number 2, 2003)
  • It was reported that the “combined average hair count increase for all men and women (using laser hair therapy) in the temporal and vertex areas was 95.5% and tensile strength was increased 78.9%”.

 “High Power Lasers are most familiar with us as they are used to cut or burn tissue, for example,

Lasik for eye correction. Low level lasers on the other hand, are used to stimulate tissue repair

through a process called photo-biostimulation.”

“Laser Hair Therapy treatments are designed to slow, stop, and even reverse the

effects of hair loss.” Dr. Alan J. Bauman – Boca Raton, Fl
