While science tells us there are no proven ways to slow down the overall aging process, there are effective means of combating certain symptoms of aging such as hair loss. Formulas for hair loss prevention and hair transplant procedures are becoming very popular and effective means of restoring hair loss. One of the newest methods used to stimulate hair growth is a laser hair loss comb.
A laser hair loss comb is simply an electric hair comb with laser light components. This type of comb can utilize laser light therapy to help stimulate hair growth in a healthy and safe way. A laser hair comb has been approved for use in the treatment of pattern baldness and thinning hair in both males and females.
Approximately 90% of the patients who have reported using a laser hair loss comb notice great benefits after as little as 8 weeks of use. Most patients report increases in hair growth, decreases in hair loss, faster hair growth, more vibrant hair color and better hair manageability.
Light therapy has been used for centuries to treat many different physical and emotional conditions. More recently, scientists have figured out how to use light in a highly controlled and precise manner, to target specific areas of the human body.
A laser hair loss comb works to stimulate hair growth by using a low-level laser on the scalp and hair follicles. Hair clinics and salons have been using this technology for many years. Much like a plant will grow better when given better lighting conditions, the hair responds to the laser hair loss comb’s phototherapy. More technically, the hair responds directly to the light in the Catagen (resting phase of hair growth) or Telogen (shedding phase of hair growth) and causes new Anagen hair to grow. The new Anagen hairs open up room for healthier and strong hair growth in the treated area. In addition to promoting hair growth, a laser hair loss comb may also lead to a reduction in dandruff and other scalp irritations.
Laser hair loss combs are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as being safe to use. The laser light used in this device meets all regulations of laser product standards. There are no harmful side effects associated with a laser hair loss comb.
