Hair loss can be devastating at any age. Unfortunately, this is a problem that’s becoming increasingly common among both men and women. Whether caused by genetics, alopecia, adverse hormonal conditions, unhealthy lifestyle habits or styling-related damage to the follicles, thinning hair can greatly diminish a person’s self-esteem and detract from his or her appearance.
Fortunately, there are a number of hair restoration solutions available at our office that may be able to slow or even reverse hair loss. Possibly the least invasive and the most effective of any of these is red light therapy.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy for hair restoration targets and stimulates dormant hair follicles to incite the production of new and healthy strands of hair. Best of all, the benefits of red light therapy for hair loss can be attained without surgical intervention. Regular exposure to the red light wavelength brings the follicles back to an active growth phase.
Red light therapy can be used as a standalone treatment for hair thinning and loss, or it may be used in conjunction with other, more aggressive measures for creating a thick and attractive head of hair. It all depends on your unique situation.
Alleviate Scalp Inflammation and Irritation
It’s not uncommon for people with thinning hair to experience irritation and inflammation of the scalp. The red light wavelength limits inflammation and helps to expedite the body’s own natural recovery abilities by minimizing the redness, swelling and inflammation that may be impacting the functionality of the follicles.
The application of red light is not just believed to incite new hair growth; it can also greatly improve the well-being of the scalp tissues overall. As such, not only can patients look forward to marked improvements in both hair thickness and length, but they’ll also have a much lower likelihood of experiencing future problems with hair thinning and loss.
Why Choose Red Light Therapy as Your Hair Loss Treatment?
Red light therapy is arguably one of the least invasive and most natural ways to address hair loss and thinning in both women and men. Whether struggling with male pattern baldness, alopecia (including scarring alopecia) or extreme follicle damage as the result of aggressive styling, red light therapy may have the ability to dramatically improve both scalp and follicle health. It can also be a very effective part of an individualized and integrated plan. No discomfort or downtime is involved, making it a convenient treatment.
