Low Level Light Therapy is a technology that has just been approved by the FDA in January of 2007 as a legitimate medical therapy for hair loss. It can be done in two different setting: 1. An in-office setting where you sit under a 107 lighted panel system for 30 minute sessions, or 2. An at-home setting where a you use a 9 light comb system for 15 minutes three times per week.
This 640nm wavelength light therapy stimulates the matrix cells of the dermal papillae (hair root) to convert biochemical resting energy (ADP) into active energy (ATP) allowing these cells to function at their maximum capacity. It is these matrix cells that form the hairs of the follicle. If the matrix cells are functioning at their highest level, they can produce a thicker, fuller hair.
Anyone with thinning hair is a candidate for this non-invasive therapy. However, you should consult with a hair restoration specialist like the physicians at Ziering Medical to get a thorough evaluation of your particular degree of thinning and the best medical and or surgical treatment options that would best suit your individual needs.
