At Medi Tresse, we take a lot of pride in being able to offer different types of female hair loss treatments to women throughout Boston and Wellesley. That's why we strive to give our patients as many options as possible. One of the best hair loss treatments available, and one we highly recommend, is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is an extremely effective non-surgical hair regrowth treatment for women’s hair loss. LLLT not only thickens existing hairs, but also increases the number of hairs in the growth phase. LLLT stimulates the hair follicle cells to grow in the scalp and increases cellular activity around the follicle. This also decreases inflammation so existing hairs can grow thicker and stronger. A 2014 randomized, double-blind (the gold standard of studies!) multicenter study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology found that there was statistically significant improvement in hair density in the treatment group, and hair shafts were both more numerous as well as thicker in about 95% of the treatment group. LLLT is beneficial in the treatment of Androgenic Alopecia (Female Pattern Hair Loss), Traction Alopecia, and Telogen Effluvium.
While there are a number of LLLT products available on the market today, we wanted to share some news about the LCPRO™ by the LaserCap® Campany. The LaserCap® Company recently announced that they received FDA 510(k) clearance for their LCPRO laser cap as an effective women’s hair loss treatment. The LCPRO is a great option for patients that are interested in utilizing the effects of LLLT. The LCRPO is extremely easy to use, and it covers the entire scalp with even light distribution with 224 diodes. The recommended usage time of the LCPRO is between 10 to 30 minutes three times a week, however, since the device is hands free, it allows you to multi-task in the comfort of your own home while you are treating your hair.
If you are interested in finding out if the LCPRO™ would be an effective hair loss treatment for you set up a free consultation with our medical staff today.
