A newer modality for the treatment of thinning hair in Cincinnati is a technology called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) which is used to advance new hair growth, reduce “shock loss” following hair transplant surgery, and heal the scabs of newly placed hair grafts more swiftly than natural healing times. These low level lasers are a non-surgical treatment option available for both men and women and are called “cold” lasers since they do not emit heat, sound, or vibration.
Laser hair therapy can be done both in our office or safely at home with a special “Capillus laser cap” that is available to our patients.
LLLT has proven to be an excellent non-surgical hair restoration choice for many of our male and female patients. Some of our patients have been able to use this therapy by itself and bypass hair transplant surgery altogether. We have found that women in general make better candidates for this type of procedure due to their unique “diffuse” pattern type of hair loss.
The following benefits have been reported from Low Level Laser Therapy:
• Increases blood supply to the scalp.
• Stimulates and accelerates hair growth.
• Stops the progression of hair loss.
• Increases hair strength and elasticity.
• Fuller, shinier, softer, thicker hair.
• Stops the progression of hair loss in 85% of patients
• Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
