Red light therapy uses photons to stimulate hair growth in scalp cells. Low-dose laser therapy increases circulation, promoting hair growth. But do the results support the theory?
Low-level laser therapy results need to be more consistent. NIH studies from 2013 and 2014 showed modest patient improvements. Despite some positive signs, low-level laser therapy has apparent drawbacks.
Some patients need lifelong treatments for slight hair growth. The cost of treatment can run into thousands of dollars per year! Low-level laser therapy can make some users sunlight-sensitive with certain medications.
For those looking for alternative solutions, some long-lasting hair loss solutions have minimal side effects. One such treatment is scalp micro pigmentation, which can give the appearance of a fuller-looking head of hair for life.
This procedure, which works by injecting small amounts of pigment into the skin, is usually accomplished within 2-3 treatments, each about one week apart, and does not require additional treatment once completed. There are little to no side effects both during and after treatment.
This procedure takes 2-3 weekly sessions with no follow-ups. The treatment typically has minimal side effects. Scalp micro pigmentation lets men customize their appearance. For men with thinning hair, this can create a fuller head of hair, while for bald or balding men, micro pigmentation can create a durable freshly-shaved look.
