The non-Surgical Treatments
Non-Surgical therapies are generally designed at maintaining and in some cases improving the quality of your hair. Since Androgenic Alopecia is a progressive condition, trying to halt the process is a vital part of the challenge of managing this condition. These treatment options can vary from topical therapies through to more invasive procedures that require the injection of growth factors into the scalp.
If you are suffering from Male Pattern Hair Loss or Female Pattern Hair Loss, the most effective form of non-surgical therapy will be a combination of prescription medication and medication that can be bought over the counter (OTC). Medical therapy is designed to stabilize hair loss. It is essential that you get a proper diagnosis and a full discussion of all available medical therapies.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy works by directly stimulating the hair follicles to grow and lengthening their growth cycle. This is a safe, portable, and non-invasive form of therapy that can be used as part of a holistic treatment regime. The quality of the device used will also impact the outcome of the treatment. It can safely be used with no side effects in both men and women.
How does Low Level Laser Therapy work?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) works through the principle of photo-biostimulation. Light at a particular wavelength reaches the root so the hair follicle which results in increased growth factors, thickening of the hair and decreased inflammation. It is an extremely safe treatment option that can be used by both men and women.
