Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Hair Therapy FAQ

 Laser Hair Treatment Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why does hair fall out?
A: One reason is because of Dihydrotestosterone, otherwise known as DHT.   DHT causes hair follicles to stop producing the thick, healthy hair we once had. Follicles become more clogged with unhealthy debris and nutrient clogging cellular waste products. Hair falls out and fails to grow back naturally. If left untreated, the follicles will close completely, but if caught in enough time, the process can be reversed.
Q: How does the laser program work?
A: The Laser Hair Program involves a select treatment process specific to your condition to take control of your hair loss.

Q: Are there any side effects?
 A: No. There are no short or long term side effects with the Laser Hair Therapy Class IIIA laser unit; it is FDA approved for cosmetic use, as is the topical activator solution.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: No. There is no pain associated with any aspect of the program. The laser is a Low Level Diode Laser, without a thermal component. A tingling sensation of the scalp may be noticed during use due to an increase in blood and nutrient flow in the scalp and hair follicles. 
Q: How long has this treatment been on the market?
A: This program was introduced to the United States about five years ago; however, individuals in Europe have been using low level lasers for over a decade.
Q: How is the program administered?
A: A certified technician specialized in Trichology (the study of the hair and scalp) will follow your progress throughout the course of the program, making any necessary changes and/or recommendations that aretailored to fit your individual needs.
Q: How soon will I begin to see results?
A: In two to four months you will begin to see a noticeable improvement. Each person's response varies on an individual basis, depending on their personal hair loss history.
Q: Will it work for me?
A: LLLT works for many users. It may work for you as well. A complete medical history, along with an in-depth consultation, will help determine if you are a good candidate.
Q: How can I find out if I am a good candidate?
A: Call 1-210-858-8554 today. Space is limited, in that the center can only service a set number of clients per year. Call the center to learn more.

Q: What is the difference between hot and cold lasers?
A: Quite simply, hot lasers and high energy lasers have a thermal component, while cold lasers do not, and therefore, cannot burn, cut or vaporize tissue.
Q: What separates one hair laser from another?
A: Just as location, location, location is critical when investing in a home; quality, quality, quality is critical when investing in a laser hair therapy device. The quality of the components that go into the device will determine the quality of the results that come out. This is particularly true when applied to the laser diodes that distribute energy to the tissues of the scalp. Output power should be consistent and the nanometer (wavelength) of the laser diodes must be accurate and precisely targeted in order to stimulate maximum cellular activity.
Q: Does it make a difference whether a laser diode has a glass or a plastic lens?
A: Good question, and yes it does. Glass provides a more effective prism through which laser light can be transmitted. Plastic does not transmit as well or last longer.
Q: Are the smaller, hand-held lasers effective?
A: Yes. The technology, though on a smaller scale, has earned a place of respect in any treatment program. Once again though, you should invest in quality.
Q: What is the future of Laser Hair Therapy?
A: As bright as a laser light itself. Laser hair therapy will continue to offer a viable, effective therapeutic alternative to hair loss.
