Cure for Balding Heads
There was a recent discovery that could help those who had the condition of hair loss. It was in the form of a non-surgical treatment called low-level laser therapy. It emerged that this technology it was not found in recent times. It was already in use as far back as fifty years ago, for treatment of conditions such as chronic pain, among others. The doctors came to this discovery by accident, since it was not their aim to cause hair to increase growth, but that was what was happening. Cancer was feared as one of the effects of using this type of laser on people. To find out if this was the case, low-level laser was applied on mice, which had instead hair growing on the targeted areas. It was a chance discovery that would be treated as a useful one much later.
Unfortunately, there has never been a distinct explanation of how low-level laser therapy can increase people’s hair growth rates. There is the idea that maybe it does this by increasing the amount of blood that flows to those areas under treatment. Others believe it is the transfer of light energy straight to the cells of the hair that causes an increase in hair growth rates. Another thing to note is that this therapy will not work in an area that has gone completely bald. Those who take it up need to also know that they shall always be on this therapy for it to kept the effects.
There are two types of these low-level laser therapy products. You have one that is made safe for home use. This one has made it safe for people to stay at home and still take their treatments. Its only issue is that it somehow lacks the full levels of intensity and coverage that is necessary for complete treatment of the whole area. This type, on the other hand, has been designed to be used in an office setting. It has a lot more energy and coverage. You will however need to keep going back to the office for treatments. It is still not clear which among these is the best method to use.
Low level laser therapy has been found to be good for patients who suffer from androgenic alopecia, irrespective of the fact that they are men or women. It is ad that for such an effective treatment, it cannot do much for those who have already gone completely bald, or for patches of complete baldness. It is good for thinning hair. Whether it is home or office treatment, there are distinct procedures to how you carry them out. Despite the fact that no clear winner has emerge among them, they are both effective solutions.
