Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive treatment in which low-dose laser energy is directed at the scalp to promote hair growth and reduce hair thinning. Painless and with no side effects, LLLT is an effective treatment for mild to moderate hair loss.

What is low-level laser therapy?

Also known as “cold laser therapy” or “red light therapy”, low-level laser therapy is a gentle treatment that encourages natural hair growth. During an LLLT treatment, the light energy is absorbed by the weaker cells. The treatment increases blood flow and nutrient supply to the cells, encouraging hair growth without excess heat.

LLLT is safe and comfortable to experience. The light energy works to increase blood circulation and encourage dying hair follicles to come back to life and produce healthy strands of hair.

Candidates for low-level laser therapy

Low level laser therapy is an effective, non-surgical treatment for both men and women. Depending on your condition, we may recommend LLLT, hair restoration surgery, or both. During your initial consultation, Dr. Leong will evaluate your condition and recommend the procedures that will help you have a healthier, thicker head of hair. LLLT may be part of a comprehensive hair restoration plan used in conjunction with hair transplants and PRP injections. You may be a candidate for low-level laser therapy if you are experiencing:

  • Hair loss due to age or genetic factors
  • Hair thinning
  • A receding hairline
  • Male or female pattern baldness
  • Thinning on the crown of your head
