LLLT Low Level Light Therapy

What Is Laser Hair Therapy?

Laser Hair Therapy (LHT) is a non-surgical, scientific approach in the cosmetic treatment of hair loss, thinning hair, and scalp problems. LHT has been tested for effectiveness and safety for over 30 years all around the world.

The LHT non-surgical cosmetic treatments utilize a device containing  therapeutic soft low light level lasers. LHT delivers light energy directly from  laser diodes covering your head. LHT functions on the same scientific principle, as that of photo-bio-stimulation; laser light stimulates cell metabolism and helps damaged cells to repair themselves. This breakthrough technology has recently been featured on national newscasts across the country. Physicians are praising this new technology as an effective treatment of hair loss, when used in conjunction with proper scalp and hair hygiene products, such as XTC Xtreme Growth Therapy and XTC Xtreme Strengthing Therapy.


Scientific Studies of Low Level Light Therapy

Now, the latest study released at the ISHRS Convention in Amsterdam, Netherlands* 2009 showed:

  • 100% of the subjects saw an increase in hair growth
  • 97% increased hair count equal to or greater than 20%
  • 77% of the subjects increase of greater than or equal to 51%
*Study presented by Dr. Grant Koher called Effect of Laser Biostimulation In The Treatment of Female Pattern Hair Loss 

  • Dr. Martin Unger conducted a study which showed a 94.4% increase in Hair!
  • A European Study showed 100% retention of hairs and a 20% improvement in thickness and density of hair follicles using Laser Bio-Stimulation**.
  • A Laser received certification by the Canadian Government to claim and indicate that it strengthens hair, prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth of hair in men and women.
  • Long term international and Recent Clinical Trials with the Laser suggests many benefits from laser hair treatments.

How lasers came to be a standard in hair loss therapy

The Laser was first used in Eastern Europe about 25 year ago to speed up the healing process of diseased individuals. Since the late 1700s, scientific studies have shown that sunlight- or the lack of it - definitely affects our body's biochemistry.

Light also affects our hair, including how fast it grows. We have all experienced how our hair grows quicker during the summer, and this increased growth is due to improved blood supply to the hair follicles stimulated by the red light in sunlight.

Laser Hair Therapy light provides the essential boost of pure red light at precisely the right frequency to revitalize and repair hair, yet it utilizes a soft laser that uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.

Although some lasers vary in the strength of each diode (normally 4.9 mw) generally the more lasers diodes a person is sitting under during each laser treatment will provide better results.

Individual results may vary. At Shear Artisan Salon we use a home strength hair laser.
