Cure for Balding Heads
There was a recent discovery that could help those who had the condition of hair loss. It was in the form of a non-surgical treatment called low-level laser therapy. It emerged that this technology it was not found in recent times. It was already in use as far back as fifty years ago, for treatment of conditions such as chronic pain, among others. Doctors noted back then that as they were attempting to solve other issues, the laser ended up causing hair to increase growth. 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 a chance discovery that would be treated as a useful one much later.
It is still a mystery how low-level laser therapy has the power to increase people’s hair growth rates. There is some speculation that points towards the idea that this therapy can increase the amount of blood flowing to the specific area being treated. Others argue that it has to be the transfer of energy from the light right into the cells that causes the accelerated hair growth. You need to know that this therapy is not effective in areas that have completely become bald. You will also have to be on regular therapy to ensure the effects are constant.
There are two variants of the low-level laser products. 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 has been designed to be used in an office setting. It has a lot more energy and coverage. You however have to be ready to make the constant trips to the doctor’s office for treatment. It is still unknown which of the two is the best method to use.
Low level laser therapy is seen as a good method of treating those who have androgenic alopecia, regardless of the fact that 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 most effective on thinning hair. There are distinct procedures to both type of therapy. Despite the fact that no clear winner has emerge among them, they are both effective solutions.
