Drugs have side effects, and surgery is painful. Can I grow hair without taking medicine, injections, or surgery? This article will get to the reviews about LLLT technology (Low-Level Laser Therapy), a non-invasive and painless treatment for hair loss process.
What is LLLT?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the biostimulation of low-energy lasers to achieve the specific results. With unique characteristics, photons are irritated into the epidermal surface to increase the metabolism of tissue cells, without damaging the tissue in any way.
Low-energy laser light therapy, sometimes called Cold Laser or Soft Laser light therapy, has rapidly become the first-line treatment of rehabilitation medicine in pain control and tissue restoration in Europe and America.
LLLT emits enough low energy and the temperature of the tissue receiving phototherapy will not rise above 27 C (normal body temperature).
LLLT is safe, painless, non-invasive, and the results of phototherapy are often immediate and continuous.
How Does LLLT Treat Hair Loss & Hair Growth?
The applied light wavelength determines the effect on body cells, and LLLT generate the specific wavelength and frequencies. When laser light penetrates around the tissues, the photo electromagnetic is converted into chemical energy in each cell, triggering a series of chemical reactions and starting the process of phototherapy; the chemical reactions in the cells will cause:
Stimulate tissue repair
Increase tissue strength
Reduce swelling by stimulating lymphatic drainage
Increase the two main enzymes by up to 75%, improving lymphatic drainage, thereby speeding up circulation and recovery
Stimulate nerve function
Promote oxidation/detoxification of cells
Enhance the immune system by increasing the number of “killer” cells by 400-900%
Re-supply energy to the cell membrane: Allow the necessary nutrients to pass through the cell wall (nutrients will not pass through a damaged or sick cell wall, so recovery is slow), allowing healthy new cells to grow

LLLT helps hair regenerate, just like sunlight helps planets grow.
Regard the growth of hair follicles as planet seeds and LLLT as sunlight, seeds germination requires suitable sunlight; hair follicles get promotion by LLLT 650nm wavelength stimulation to regenerate and accelerate hair cells division.
LLLT treatment is applicable for hair loss, baldness, alopecia areata and hair transplant in both men & women to help wound healing and hair regeneration. As long as hair follicles are still active, patients with male baldness in the second to sixth stages will have effective results on home-use laser device, and hair improvement will be visible after 3-4 months. According to a clinical trial of 40 people, 20 people wore LLLT caps, and another 20 wore laser caps of other wavelengths. 11 women and 9 men, who used 650nm wavelength laser caps and took 25minutes every other day for 4 months, have hair increased by 43.2% average volume.
Those who used laser caps of other wavelengths, have hair increased by 5.7% average volume. The study also showed that 93% patients with androgenetic baldness between 25 and 60 ages experienced hair growth results without side-effects after having LLLT treatment. To hair loss patients, LLLT treatment is definitely a great option.
