How Laser Therapy Helps With Hair Loss
Ziering Medical offers many options for hair restoration treatments aside from surgical operations. For those seeking non-invasive hair restoration or whose hair loss issues are not severe enough to warrant hair transplantation surgery, Dr. Craig Ziering can work with patients to create a personalized treatment plan utilizing the appropriate non-surgical hair restoration treatment. These include methods that use cutting edge laser technology to promote hair growth and scalp health.
Lasers? How Do They Work?
While it sounds like something out of science-fiction, using lasers to restore hair is a standard treatment that is effective, non-invasive, painless, and has no known side effects. Patients experience a slowing down of hair loss and new hair growth as a result of laser treatments. Their existing hair becomes fuller and thicker by the effects of the low-level laser hair therapy at Ziering. This is achieved by utilizing lasers tuned to specific wavelengths that deliver doses of energy to the hair follicles, stimulating them and promoting the growth of hair.
The technology has matured to the point where Ziering Medical offers several types of laser hair restoration treatments, including: standard laser therapy in-clinic, KeraLase™ and the Ziering Cap or Z-Cap.
In-Clinic Laser Therapy at Ziering Medical
An ideal treatment for those looking for minimally invasive ways to address hair loss, in-clinic laser therapy at Ziering Medical promotes thicker hair by using cold laser technology that stimulates the follicles of your scalp. This increases their activity and reduces the effect of DHT enzymes that slow hair growth.
The cold laser technology utilized by this process gives off no heat and cannot harm the skin. Dr. Ziering generally prescribes 50 in-clinic sessions for patients who are ready to restore their hair to a richer thickness and fullness through laser therapy.
Each non-invasive, painless laser hair treatment lasts around 20 minutes. The sessions are spread over a 6 month period, and decrease in frequency as the laser therapy progresses. Each patient’s response varies on an individual basis, depending on the amount of hair loss, hair condition, and genetic history. Some patients begin to see results in as few as 6 to 8 weeks of laser therapy at Ziering.
KeraLase™ Combines Laser Therapy with Hair Growth Serums
A simple, pain-free procedure performed in Ziering Medical hair restoration clinics, KeraLase™ combines laser therapy with the unique, patent-pending KeraFactor® Serum. It is a clinically proven therapy for treating hair loss, improving scalp health, and stimulating hair growth.
KeraLase™ treatment is a two step process:
Treating the scalp with the Ultra Laser. The area of the scalp with thinning hair is prepared by the laser, which creates tiny microchannels in the scalp – an optimal environment for maximum absorption of the KeraFactor® Serum
KeraFactor® Serum massaged gently into the laser-treated areas. The medication is a compound of 5 bioidentical growth factors aimed to stimulate hair growth and 2 skin proteins which revitalize the scalp.
A minimum of 4 treatments scheduled one month apart is required, and an at-home follow up of KeraFactor product applied morning and evening is needed to realize the best results. This is a 30 minute in-clinic treatment and may be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with hair transplants, or combined with Z-Factors treatments. No downtime is required by this hair loss treatment.
Laser Hair Restoration at Home with the Z-Cap
As laser hair restoration technology developed, it has reached the point where the treatment can be done at home with the Ziering LaserCap. This is a clinically proven and FDA-cleared method to promote hair regrowth.
The Ziering LaserCap is a prescription-strength, portable hair growth device with 304 laser diodes, delivering 3.93 J/cm2 energy doses to your hair follicles.
Available by prescription only for Ziering patients, the LaserCap works by stimulating inactive hair follicles with low-level laser therapy (LLLT). This is a safe and all-natural painless hair regrowth treatment. LLLT illuminates the hair follicles with monochromatic red laser light at a finely-tuned wavelength and intensity across a wide area of the patient’s scalp.
Patients can now treat their hair loss with prescription-strength laser therapy in the comfort of their own homes or as they go about their daily lives. The Ziering LaserCap is so convenient that people can wear it even as they are on the move. It literally fits within a cap.
With regular and proper use of this laser cap for hair growth, 30 minutes per day/3 times per week, patients usually notice a difference in their thinning areas within 60 days. This hair loss treatment is scientifically proven to increase hair strength and diameter as well as improve the overall luster and appearance of hair quality.
All in all, laser Therapy is an effective non-invasive, chemical-free treatment to help stop hair loss, and it should be medically supervised.
The benefits of laser therapy for patients are many:
- Easy treatments performed at your home or in our hair loss clinics
- Faster healing of the scalp and suture areas after hair transplant surgery
- Thicker, healthier, stronger hair
- Increased hair volume
- Decreased inflammation and edema for problem scalps.
