Is Laser Light Hair Therapy right for me?
It is important to know the basics of how hair grows and replaces itself in its natural cycle. Every hair on one’s head usually grows for several years and then falls out. The root then rests for some weeks before starting to re-grow a new hair. This cycle continues throughout our lives. Unfortunately, as we age, some people replace fewer hairs than are shed (and/or thinner, lighter hair) resulting in thinner hair and gradually baldness occurs. You don’t go bald or thin out because your hair falls out – it’s meant to do so. You go bald or thin out if it doesn’t grow back! Laser used on a regular basis strengthens and regenerates the hair roots. This slows or arrests, and in some cases, reverses the degenerative cycle as previously described.
Once the hair roots are dead, nothing can be done to restore them, so the sooner treatment is started, the better your results are. Therapeutic pure red light stimulates blood supply to the hair bulb and scalp, increasing the number of red blood cells that deliver vital oxygen and nutrients. The result is a restorative and reparative chain reaction that clears debris from the hair shafts, swells the cortex and closes the cuticle leading to a healthier scalp and hair that looks and feels softer, thicker and shinier, and is more easily managed. Used in conjunction with mHm products, laser light therapy delivers even more benefits, because the laser light closes the cuticle.
Laser Light Hair Therapy is a non-surgical therapeutic laser and good for the hair. It works in varying degrees on everyone, from slowing, arresting or reversing hair loss to increasing the shine, body and elasticity of hair. Laser is recommended for either men or women who are in the early stages of hair loss or who demonstrate sufficient hair follicles capable of being rehabilitated by the laser hair therapy program. To maintain a healthy head of hair, especially if there is a history of baldness in your family, the sooner you start, the better.
Usually noticeable improvement is achieved in 4 to 6 months. However, if you have heavy hair fall-out, you may notice a reduced rate of fall-out after only a few treatments. Results vary per individual, and compliance is necessary to achieve the best results.
Laser therapy in conjunction with oral and topical therapy, may achieve faster and better results, than these treatments alone. If started early enough, it alone may be all the treatment that is needed to maintain your hair.
There are several benefits:
- Delivers light energy directly from different laser positions without loss of light properties to insure appropriate dosage.
- Increases blood supply to the scalp.
- Stops excessive hair loss.
- Stimulates hair follicle.
- Repairs and improves hair shaft quality.
- Relieves irritating scalp conditions.
- Enhances the lasting effects of hair color and perms by closing the cuticle.
Laser Light Hair Therapy can also be used with hair transplants. It is used post operatively to promote healing, reduce scarring, and ensure a higher rate of success for transplanted units. It has been proven very helpful when used before and after transplant procedures to help establish new grafts and minimize shedding of transplanted hair.
The mHm Hair loss treatment program works for nearly every client at the right stage of hair loss. Some clients who are in the initial stages of hair loss may see a faster response to this treatment program. However, almost all clients on this program stop hair loss and re-grow hair. Like any treatment, results vary by individual.
