A long time before now, when laser and hair were used in the same sentence, it meant using laser technology to remove hair. But now, laser technology is famous for its amazing application to hair growth.
The idea of using a laser to stimulate hair growth was first published in the 1960’s, and it was met with a lot of skepticism and doubt. It sounded very unreal- especially to people who had been dealing with hair loss for much of their adult lives- that hair could be restored by exposing the scalp to cool and gentle laser light. But it became believable as more and more people regained their hair from using laser devices. Currently, there are lots of devices in the market that use lasers to regrow and restore hair.
Hair loss is something that most of us would have to face at some point in our lives. And laser hair growth devices would become very handy then. Laser hair growth devices use low-level light therapy (LLLT) to promote hair growth and prevents the worry and anxiety that is associated with thinning or loss of hair. It is a very popular option for people who want a safe and effective way of restoring their natural hair.
How does a laser hair growth device work to restore hair?
The LLLT is absorbed into the cell, which triggers cellular activity and enhances it. The LLT also activates old aging cells, making them more active. This awakening of old cells increases their effectiveness in hair growth and enables the hair follicles to sustain a healthy and natural growth cycle.
In general, a laser hair growth device works to increase the diameter existing hair shafts, enhances hair growth from viable hair follicles and increases the hair’s resistance to breakage.
Who is laser hair growth device suitable for?

- People with diffuse hair loss

Hair cells are one of the fastest growing cells in our body. Laser light on the scalp creates an energizing effect that energizes the hair and improves its feel and appearance shortly. A Laser hair growth device is safe and painless, the lasers do not burn scalp or tissue.
The result of using laser hair devices to regrow hair varies from person to person, but it is more suited for people with moderate hair loss. That is why it is advisable to use it early before your hair loss condition advances.
As long as you avoid using topical medications (medications that increases your skin’s sensitivity to light) and avoid looking directly into the laser light while using the laser hair growth device, the device would be completely safe to use. It has no side effects and can trigger hair growth under a short space of time.
