Hair is one of the most important aspects of one’s aesthete. People with scarce hair on their head suffer a lot where they not only tolerate the deterioration in their self-respect but also their beauty and grace. Even American president Mr. Donald Trump’s ‘longtime doctor’, Harold Bornstein, who confirmed The Donald’s use of Finasteride 1mg as published by the New York Times. When a colossal business tycoon and the present American President couldn’t ignore the hair loss disorder, how could we expect something like that from mundane people?
Why the generation today is facing this problem?
Years ago, when the world didn’t succumb to mixed and degraded materials; when ‘ghee’ meant only ‘ghee’, not the obligatory unhealthy acids that come free with it nowadays, the conditions were not as bad as they are now.
- It is the result of the lifestyle that we are enduring that not only the older section of society but the adolescence age and the women today is not spared from the cruel pangs of massive hair fall.
- Sometimes hair loss is also a hereditary problem, while in some cases over-shampooing can also be a cause.
- Hair fall is also because of change of Hormones in the Human body. Especially higher testosterone is seen as a cause.
- Over exposure to sun, improper diet, higher stress levels could be some other reasons for the same.
One or the other, few people accept hair fall or baldness as a part of their life, while it is also a cause of lack of confidence and inferiority complex in many. But, in today advanced world one need not to worry about the hair problems. Research has come out with many therapy and solutions for reduction of hair fall and also to grow hairs.
What is the solution to hair fall?
Hair fall scientifically known as Alopecia is a common ailment that affects more than half of the population worldwide. Androgenetic alopecia, the most common type amongst all, affects 50% of the males over the age of 40 and 75% of females over 65. It is not less than a concern that a disorder that has affected more than half of the population today only two major drugs that have been approved so far for the suppression of hair fall. Hair transplant is the other treatment alternative and to be said frankly, a much better option than the rest. The application of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) applied to the scalp and hair deficient or bald areas for the treatment of hair loss are not only a prevalent but a determining treatment.
How does a laser treatment for hair transplant or retention works:
Though initially, laser therapy was used to remove hairs not to revive the growth of hairs. It is called a low laser light therapy because usually while removing hairs scientist noticed that if a laser is used with an inadequate energy it boost hair growth.
The birth story….
The birth of LLLT was actually an accidental one – in 1967, a Hungarian scientist was doing an experiment on mice, wherein he was trying to resolve the effect of visible red light on skin that has been affected by cancer. However, what he perceived was that when the skin was exposed to this red light, the hair in the area grew much faster.
“The theory is, if you can stimulate the follicle to reactivate hair cells, you can get new hair growth,” Dermatologist Sandy Tsao
When a laser light is absorbed by a cell, it encourages regrowth of hairs. According to the “New York Times” article, laser hair restoration won’t bring dead hair follicles back to life; however, it will stimulate follicles in the state of decline and make existing hair thicker and fuller.
The process of LLLT…
Over the past several decades, there has been much research in the area and studies have shown that the visible red laser light in the 630-670 nanometer spectrum is absorbed really well by an enzyme known as cytochrome c. The resultant photobiological reactions send out signals to the cells present in the hair follicles. This, in turn, will stimulate genetic activity; decreases the cell death caused due to the genes and also improve the survival rate of the follicles.
Laser treatment uses therapy to nourish hair follicles and thus hair growth. The therapy has not been reported with any side effects till now and requires lesser time commitment too. Such process does improve your motivation and confidence. Controlled clinical trials lead to the conclusion that Laser therapy stimulates hair growth in both men and women.
Apart from the healing treatment of hair fall, the red light treatment has been developed for various skin conditions, nerve regeneration, joint pain relief, stroke discovery, so on and so forth.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-evasive laser treatment that does not burn or harm the skin. The main concern of the people around the world and more specifically, in our nation is that they want to be certain of the fact that the therapy doesn’t lead to any serious side effects And while talking about its result and productivity, it would not be wrong to say that the outcome depends totally upon the individual; moreover on how the body reacts to the treatment. Before going for the laser treatment, one
should deliberately consult a dermatologist, trichologist or hair transplant surgeon to know about the options which would directly help the person to choose the best decision.
Get the good-looking appearance…
Hair transplantation aided by laser can prove to be beneficial in meeting the high expectations of hair transplantation patients. The high transplant patient of last few years and upcoming decade should expect a hair transplant with moderate-to-good coverage and above all a natural and good-looking appearance. When using laser therapy for hair loss disorder, one has to be consistent on the top of all. It should be understood that the person has to use the light therapy as often as three times a week, for 15 to 20 minutes per session. The laser therapy works best in the beginning stages of hair loss. The earlier the person starts the therapy the better would be the consequences, and as said, LLLT is not a medicinal pill, which works same on every person; the treatment responds to the genetic architecture of the body and takes varying time on varying individuals.
