The laser hair comb may sound like a gimmick but for people suffering from thinning hair or hair loss it is worth investigation. Laser hair therapy is the latest device for re-growing hair. It uses cool or red spectrum light laser to enhance the restoration of scalp hair without side effects or the need for clinic visits or prescription medications. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT ) or cool light laser uses laser energy to energize the tissue on the scalp. As the lasers in the laser hair comb are passed over the scalp area the hair follicles receive the high intensity light and cell processes are stimulated causing new or renewed hair growth. This process is scientifically known as Photo Bio-stimulation. Similar to photosynthesis in plants where light energy is transformed into chemical energy to cause plant growth to create food here the cellular energy creates new hair growth. This laser technology has been used for 25+ years in Europe and for nearly 10 years in clinics in the United States for treating hair loss. This treatment in a clinical setting was quite costly and time consuming as it required multiple weekly sessions that needed to be scheduled for 6 months at a time before the sessions could be tapered down to once a week or less. Now the laser hair comb provides treatment at relatively low price and can be used conveniently at home or even while traveling.
We normally lose up to 100 hairs per day but there are that many new hairs being generated in the follicles each day on a healthy head. At any one time 90% of the follicles are producing hair in a growth (anagen) cycle but each follicle has its own time clock that can be influenced by age disease medicines and other factors. This timed life cycle has three stages. The anagen phase is active growth and lasts between two to six years. The catagen or transitional phase lasts from two to three weeks. The telogen or resting phase lasts two to three months and at the end of this phase the hair is shed and new hair replaces it starting the cycle all over again.
The hand held device that you purchase should have a simple button to turn the laser on and off so you can use your hand held laser device as a regular brush. Convenience is probably one of the main factors for opting to buy a laser device for your own personal use so do not choose one that is difficult to operate. Using the laser hair comb should be simple enough to do while watching your favorite television show. Like brushing your teeth to maintain healthy teeth and gums regular laser hair comb usage is recommend to keep your hair looking its best. Follow the manufacturers guidelines and use only every other day for a total of 15 minutes or as directed for maximum benefit.
Laser hair combs use low level laser or cold laser therapy as a non-invasive method to re-grow hair and restore its youthful qualities. Surgery and prescription medications or covering up the problem are the only alternatives to this light therapy. No chemicals are used and there is no thermal or heat damage to the scalp. Both men and women are good candidates for this treatment and it is painless and safe with no known side effects. In fact use of these devices can decrease inflammation and edema of the area treated. Some people may think that the cost is prohibitive. The initial outlay of $300-$500 for the laser comb is the main cost. A good quality laser comb can use rechargeable batteries which is a cost savings. Any shampoos or conditioners that compliment the laser therapy process cost no more than traditional quality products and any suggested vitamins are good for all areas of your health.
