With all the buzz surrounding the use of light to permanently reduce hair growth, we were a little surprised to hear about using lasers to help prevent hair-loss.
While topical treatments like minoxidil are usually the first line of defense against hair-loss, many hair-loss physicians say light-based therapy treatments can be effective too. Light therapy, which is 100% painless, can utilize low-level diode lasers to improve the function of the hair cell, in turn thickening it and causing it to grow. On average, a year of treatments with monthly maintenance treatments thereafter is necessary. But this isn’t necessarily a cure; laser-based therapy treatments are often used in conjunction with hair restoration surgery for optimal results.
