I have heard reports of using unusual wave lengths of light to stimulate hair growth for MPB. Is there any documented results on this work? Is there any application in stimulating growth in newly transplanted hair?
I have been doing the Laser Light Therapy for the past 4 months with No positive results yet, if fact it seems to have made my hair loss worse. Do you have any data on this therapy?
I have been bombarded with questions about Low Laser Light Therapy (LLLT) for hair growth stimulation since I started writing the BaldingBlog. The above are just two recent examples which reflect the wide variations in questions, one of which was already answered in a previous entry. To address these questions, I have prepared and will continue to prepare more updated information on the laser’s mechanisms of action and benefits as understood by the medical, scientific and commercial establishment. This summary should serve to supply an overview of the subject on LLLT. Until a well controlled FDA quality study is in our hands, we will not be able to judge with any degree of certainty whether or not the laser will become an important part of today’s hair loss treatment armamentarium. The wide enthusiasm for the technology in the United States today has been preceded in Europe for many years. I expect to review the European and American literature sometime in the next month or so.
Please read the new Low Laser Light Therapy page at newhair.com for more information.
With regard to the second person’s question: the laser should not cause hair loss, so I would expect that this person is going through a rapid loss period that is coincidental to the laser treatment, or has some medical cause of hair loss that needs proper medical assessment. It is important to seek the help of a competent doctor when something like this occurs.
