What Is Laser Hair Therapy?

Laser hair therapy is a non-surgical treatment in which infrared light therapy is applied to a patient’s scalp to stimulate growth. As one of the most advanced hair loss treatments today, laser hair therapy can help men and women who are suffering from hair loss achieve fuller and thicker hair. This form of hair restoration works to stabilize hair loss and even stimulate re-growth. Laser hair therapy gives women experiencing hair loss a better option over Rogaine for hair restoration.

How Does Laser Hair Therapy Work?

With laser hair therapy, light energy is delivered directly to the scalp where it increases blood circulation and oxygen supply to the hair follicles. With this treatment, about 70% of the hair follicles are stimulated from the resting to the growing phase.

How Long Does Each Treatment Take?

Each laser hair therapy treatment takes about 30 minutes. It is recommended that patients using this treatment receive three to four treatments per week to benefit from it.

Who Is the Best Candidate for Laser Hair Therapy?

With laser hair therapy, the best candidates are those who have just begun to experience significant hair loss. Also, those experiencing hair loss due to stress, mineral deficiency, and/or genetics have success with laser hair therapy. This treatment is also used as a follow up to hair transplantation surgery as a way to speed up the healing process and accelerate the growth of newly grafted hair.

Is Laser Hair Therapy Painful?

Because laser hair therapy is non-invasive, there is no pain or discomfort at all. After receiving treatment with laser hair therapy, patients can immediately return to their daily activities and schedules.

When Will I Start to See Results?

Although results vary with each case, most patients begin to see a reduction of hair loss within the first two to three weeks (or five to six treatments) followed by hair growth within five to six weeks (10-12 treatments). It is important to remember that the initial results start below the scalp within the follicle.

What Is the Cost of Laser Hair Therapy?

The cost of laser hair therapy varies with each patient depending on the amount of hair loss and the extent of the treatment to achieve your individual appearance goal. During your initial consultation and evaluation, you will be given a good estimate as to the cost of your laser hair therapy. Dr. Kiely accepts cash, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), and check as payment options.
