how to Reverse Thinning Hair
There was a recent discovery that could help those who had the condition of hair loss. It turned out be a non-surgical treatment for the condition, referred to as low-level laser therapy. In truth, this technology is not so new. It was already in use as far back as fifty years ago, for treatment of conditions such as chronic pain, among others. The doctors came to this discovery by accident, since it was not their aim to cause hair to increase growth, but that was what was happening. Cancer was feared as one of the effects of using this type of laser on people. 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 argue that it has to be the transfer of energy from the light right into the cells that causes the accelerated hair growth. Another thing to note is that this therapy will not work in an area that has gone completely bald. You will also have to be on regular therapy to ensure the effects are constant.
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 one has made it safe for people to stay at home and still take their treatments. 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. It is still not clear which among these is the best method to use.
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 ad that for such an effective treatment, it cannot do much for those who have already gone completely bald, or for patches of complete baldness. It is good for thinning hair. Depending on whether it is home or office treatment, you will have to go through some distinct procedures. There may be no winner among them, but they both end up serving their purpose.
