Hair Restoration / Rejuvenation
Light therapy is one of the most effective ways to treat the progression of hair loss available today. Studies have shown that light therapy has been found to slow or stop hair loss in about 80% of clients, and with consistent use, has also been found to thicken the existing hair in around 40%. While we cannot guarantee any new growth, tests have shown that clients stop losing their hair and possibly even thickening the hairs that have become finer over the years, it provides most clients with a much-improved appearance in regards to density and coverage.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Light Therapy Defined
Lipo Angel Light Therapy is not a new technology. In fact, laser light therapy has been used for decades in different industries ranging from dermatology to physical therapy. The laser energy used to slow or stop the progression of hair loss is visible in the red light spectrum. Often referred to as a “cold laser”, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), while a highly concentrated wavelength of light, is very low-level (650-670 nanometers), resulting in a successful treatment for both male and female hair loss without the risk of any side effects.
Lipo Angel Light Therapy at Work
When light therapy is applied to a target area – in this case, your scalp – it has been found to increase blood flow to wherever it is being applied. The specific wavelength of light used in the Lipo Angel Photon is (650-670 nm) and this stimulates the mitochondria (the energy centers of our cells), resulting in cells that become much more active. When this happens, the cells metabolize faster, resulting in more blood flow. More blood flow means that more oxygen, platelets, and other healing properties that our hearts naturally produce get applied to help “heal” the affected area. The end result is a happier, healthier scalp, and more often than not, thicker, healthier hair as well.
The Discovery of Low-Level Laser Therapy’s (LLLT) Origin in Stimulating Hair Growth
In 1967, a Hungarian scientist studying the use of lasers for other purposes in mice, discovered that visible red laser light may stimulate hair growth. The hair on the backs of the mice were shaved in the area to receive treatment. One group of mice received laser treatments, and one group did not. The hair within the shaven area grew back more quickly in the mice treated with laser.
Who May Benefit from Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?
Laser therapy is best for clients who have existing hair they’d prefer not to lose, the treatment is relaxing and has no side effects.
