Questions About LLLT

LLLT is an acronym for Low Level Light Therapy. This refers to a therapy that utilizes laser or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength. Light sources used for LLLT may include laser and LED devices. Laser devices used for LLLT are also referred to as cold lasers. LLLT devices produce no heat, are safe and cannot burn or injure the skin.

Multiple clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of Low—Level Light Therapy in promoting hair growth in men and women with androgenetic alopecia. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but the most recent research has identified that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, triggering enhanced cellular activity. In other words, the theory is that LLLT makes aging cells more active, thereby increasing their effectiveness in hair growth.

Yes, Medical Doctors, including dermatologists, in the United States, Europe and Asia prescribe the hairpro® for use with male patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia.

It is important to use light within the recommended wavelength for laser hair treatment. Research studies suggest the most effective wavelength for hair growth is between 650—670nm. This wavelength has the most efficient and effective absorption that is essential for hair growth.

Most LLLT devices use either LEDs or Lasers. LED light doesn’t penetrate to the hair follicle level and is also diffused hence not that effective. All the top clinical research and reports done on LLLT show that true laser diodes are much more effective. Many helmet type devices use combination of LED and Laser and this can decrease the power and effectiveness of the devices. LED diodes are much more cheaper than laser diodes – hence companies use LED to reduce cost. But you must ensure that you choose true laser diode device for good results.

Will all laser and light devices provide equivalent results on the scalp?No. Not all devices have the same power and energy output, and therefore, will not yield the same results. Many devices only cover a limited area. Most of these devices require the user to manually move a hand-held comb or brush repeatedly over the scalp for 10-20 minutes at a time. This is tiresome and does not provide consistent application of the light. Some helmet devices are too difficult to use, bulky, not portable and most importantly may not have true laser diodes. So, ease of use and optimal power is important to get good results and not all devices are made the same.

No. Not all devices have the same power and energy output, and therefore, will not yield the same results. Many devices only cover a limited area. Most of these devices require the user to manually move a hand-held comb or brush repeatedly over the scalp for 10-20 minutes at a time. This is tiresome and does not provide consistent application of the light. The hairpro® combines laser and LED light in a hands-free automated device that is easy to use, while providing consistent scalp coverage in each 20-25 minute treatment session.

LLLT can be used with hair loss products Rogaine or Propecia. However the use of pharmaceuticals is not required to achieve results with the hairpro®. That’s what’s great about the hairpro! It is a product that requires only a one—time investment. The hairprocauses no side effects, isn’t messy, and is very easy to use.

Using an LLLT Device

There is no evidence that increased Low—Level Light Therapy (LLLT) will provide better results. LLLT should only be used as prescribed. Each LLLT session should be followed by a period of rest. This translates into alternating session days.

Hair loss is a progressive condition. If untreated, you can expect to lose more hair over time. After the initial 4 to 6 month LLLT treatment period, you should continue sessions once or twice per week to maintain your hair quality.

Yes. LLLT can be used immediately after transplant surgery. Doctors have reported that using LLLT can help stimulate healing of the wounds, and improve transplant results in hair loss patients. In fact, hair transplant surgeons worldwide have chosen to use the LLLT to improve results. Anecdotal reports have shown that LLLT sessions immediately following surgery decrease the recovery time in hair transplant patients, and increases hair thickness. Consult with your transplant surgeon for more information.

No. After transplant surgery, it is important that your scalp does not come into direct contact with any foreign object. Many devices use teeth or spikes that are studded with a laser. You should not use such devices as they will damage your transplant. Instead, use a device that covers the entire scalp but does not directly touch the scalp. At the present time only the hairpro® by HairPro India is safe and effective for patients immediately following transplant surgery.
