Cure for Balding Heads
Recently, a new solution was found for people who have the condition of hair loss. It turned out be a non-surgical treatment for the condition, referred to as low-level laser therapy. It turned out that the technology is not a recent discovery. The technology was already being applied in other areas, such as chronic pain management, among others. What the doctors noticed back then was that as it helped the patients with their specific problems, it had the side effect of causing hairs to increase in growth. Cancer was seen as one of the effects of using the laser on humans. To ascertain this, a low level laser was used on mice, which instead had more hair growing where the laser had landed. It was an accidental discovery that would not be seen as useful until much later.
Unfortunately, there has never been a distinct explanation of how low-level laser therapy can increase people’s hair growth rates. There is the idea that maybe it does this by increasing the amount of blood that flows to those areas under treatment. Others believe it is the transfer of light energy straight to the cells of the hair that causes an increase in hair growth rates. it is important to note that this therapy will not work on areas that have completely gone bald. Those who take it up need to also know that they shall always be on this therapy for it to kept the effects.
You will find two types of the low-level laser therapy products to choose from. You have one that is made safe for home use. This is the one that enables people to carry out their treatments right from home. Its only issue is that it somehow lacks the full levels of intensity and coverage that is necessary for complete treatment of the whole area. The other type on the other hand can only be used at the doctor’s office. It gives forth a lot more energy and coverage. You will however need to keep going back to the office for treatments. But there is yet to emerge a clear winner in terms of performance.
Low level laser therapy has been established as an effective method of treating those who have the condition of androgenic alopecia, whether they are men or women. It is unfortunate that for all its effectiveness, it cannot treat cases of people who have already gone completely bald. It works best for thinning hair instead. There are distinct procedures to both type of therapy. And as much as there is no clear winner, they are both helpful in what they were designed to do.
