Laser Hair Therapy

Discover how this new Laser Hair Therapy technology can rapidly give you your hair back and make you feel on top of the world.

Science recognizes that all life forms, regardless of how primitive or how advanced, derive life-giving sustenance from the sun’s energy. Since the dawn of time the sun has been the source of all life on earth.

Because of our modern lifestyle, we tend to spend less time exposed to the positive benefits of the sun’s energy. Scientists have known for more than a hundred years that light, even ordinary light has an effect on cell function and that light deprivation can cause debilitating mental depression. Light can heal and conversely, the lack of light can cause serious illness. Remove a plant from the sun’s rays and it withers and dies. Place a child, born with jaundice under a simple blue light and the symptoms are reversed.


(During the summer months when we are exposed to extended hours of natural sunlight we find that our hair grows faster and thicker.)
It is the pure red spectrum of sunlight that stimulates blood supply to our scalp and provokes this biological phenomenon. Science has now harnessed this energy providing mankind with a therapeutic solution to hair loss in the form of laser hair therapy.


In order to understand the mechanism responsible for the sometimes, stunning results achieved with laser hair therapy, it is necessary to understand the difference between ordinary light, and laser light. It is also important to recognize the difference between high level laser energy and low lever laser energy.


Ordinary white light, as produced by the sun and commercial light bulbs, is comprised of all colors of the light spectrum and emits its light in all directions. Normal light with a high degree of infrared light produces a thermal effect on the skin. This is due to its high energy and high absorption rate of water in the surface of the skin.

Laser light has one precise color (monochromatissity) and produces a coordinated emissions of photons traveling in a parallel path (coherence), capable of projecting its highly concentrated energy on a small determined area regardless of the distance (polarization, parallelism).


High energy lasers, to varying degrees, heat the water in the outer cell structures of the skin and are thus, effective medical instruments for creating delicate surgical incisions, skin resurfacing and even hair removal. Pulsed lasers are sequenced to provide intermittent cooling of the skin’s surface and alleviate burning.


In industry, high energy lasers have many uses including fusing and cutting steel. Low level lasers or cold lasers have no thermal component and can not cut, burn, or vaporize tissue. They operate on the principal of photo-bio-therapy and are capable of reaching deeper layers of the skin. This is due to the permeability of the epidermis for specific colors (visible red and near invisible, infrared).


When low level laser light is absorbed by cellular and sub-cellular structures, a photo biochemical chain reaction (cytochromes, porphyries) is triggered, provoking, positive, therapeutic results.


The use of low level laser energy would not be possible without the foresight of the “Father of Laser Biostimulation,” Professor Endre Mester of Budapest Hungary. It was Professor Mester who first discovered the miraculous healing effects of Low Level Laser Therapy, and inadvertently, the potential for stimulating hair growth.

In 1964, while performing wound healing treatments on laboratory mice, using a low reactive laser, Dr. Mester observed that not only did the laser light stimulate microcirculation of blood supplies resulting in tissue regeneration, but the body hair located in the treatment area grew thicker and longer than the surrounding hair. This was proof positive to researchers that laser light, delivered with the correct power at the appropriate wavelength had a positive effect on cell function within the hair follicle.
{Today, hair restoration clinics around the globe are employing laser hair therapy as an important tool to stop the progression of hair loss and stimulate regrowth.}


Free standing laser hair therapy clinics are springing up in every quadrant of the world to meet the demand of individuals seeking an effective, non-invasive, therapeutic solution to their hair loss.


Professor Mester’s clumsy helium neon laser has been replaced by sleek, state of the art, clinical laser hair therapy devices with 40 or more diode lasers mounted in a hood. These are devices, under which the patient/client sits for 15 to 30 minutes, while “soft” laser light energy is delivered to the tissues of the scalp.
{The most advanced laser is the AlphaLase LX-40.}


This space age looking device is equipped with laser modules that power 40 precisely tuned laser diodes. Programmable banks of laser lights modulate around the client’s head distributing laser energy to specific areas of the scalp. To insure full cranial coverage, the hood in which the lasers are mounted automatically raises and lowers incrementally during the treatment period.


Other features include a soft touch screen on which treatment time, power level of individual laser modules, and programmable computer system are controlled. The vertical movement of the hood is also managed on the touch screen. For music lovers who can’t be separated from their iPOD for fifteen to thirty minutes, the hood of the AlphaLase is equipped with stereo speakers as well as a “port” in which the client’s iPOD can be plugged for relaxed listening during treatment…


Professor Endre Mester’s research contributed much more to the quality of our lives than the ability to stop hair loss and grow more hair. His clinical investigation into low level laser therapy has provided us with the ability to heal wounds (with reduced scar formation), and control pain through increased B-endorphin release and ATP production. Beyond that, the application of low level laser therapy extends in Rheumatology, Sports Medicine, Dentistry, Dermatology, and Laser Acupuncture. Indications range from the treatment of hemorrhoids, carpal tunnel syndrome, burns (first, second, and third degree), chronic eczema, rheumatoid arthritis and more…much more…


A study of low level laser hair therapy is truly a journey into the light.
