Low-Level Laser Therapy

How Is it an Alternative to Hair Transplantation?

The method has been proven to promote the growth of hair in patients of both sexes who are affected by androgenetic alopecia.
Low-Level Laser Therapy - Lasers have been in use for some time for the treatment of a wide range of health problems, including skin issues, vision problems, trauma, aches etc. It is also being used for hair loss treatment in many areas of the U.S. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive and non-chemical treatment method that makes use of light energy or lasers to promote the growth of hair. It is also known by other names such as photobiomodulation, biostimulation, soft laser, cold laser, low-level light therapy and red-light therapy.

Mechanism of Action

The method has been proven to promote the growth of hair in patients of both sexes who are affected by androgenetic alopecia. It is not known how LLLT actually works, but studies have displayed its effect on the human body and its possible effects for treating hair loss problems.
Studies conducted by top clinics like SHIFT Hair Transplant suggest that the laser rays are absorbed into the cells, thus triggering the improvement in cellular activity. Low-Level Laser Therapy is supposed to increase the activity of ageing cells and promotes the effective growth of hair. The effectiveness of this treatment has been highlighted only for people affected by Androgenetic alopecia. However, it works very well for people with pattern baldness and thinning hair resulting from a genetic problem. The cure might not be effective for every patient and is unlikely to yield results for people with no hair or with an extremely little amount of hair.

Type of Results

Research has shown that the process can exhibit results after various time periods for various patients. On an average, however, patients witness some benefits after about 26 weeks from the date of the therapy.
The results can also vary based on the scalp area that is being treated. The technique could have potential effects on a single region of the scalp and promote the growth of new hair. However, there is also the possibility of the therapy being unable to work equally good on other spots. In such cases, the growth of new hair is unlikely to be uniform all over.


Low-level laser therapy is an FDA-approved method, and scientifically it has been proven to be extremely effectual and safe for restoring hair when used properly. This is a painless therapy and needs minimal investment in time. It boosts blood flow, reduces inflammation and boosts new hair growth.
