Men and women benefit from laser hair restoration treatment in Portland
Hair loss can be an unfortunate effect of aging. Approximately 50 percent of men over 40 have started losing hair. However, men are not the only ones who suffer from hair loss. As many as 40 percent of women experience hair loss or thinning hair at some point in their lives. Dr. Maddox and his team proudly stay on top of trends and technological advancements. Using state-of-the-art technology allows Thrive to offer laser hair restoration treatment to patients in Portland.
There are a number of hair restoration products and procedures available to patients. Ranging from commercial topical creams to hair transplants to laser procedures, the treatments vary in cost, effectiveness, and invasiveness. Commercially available products often come at a lower cost but that cost equals its effectiveness. Lasers have given patients an effective alternative to invasive transplant procedures but a more effective option than over-the-counter products.
Low Level Light Therapy
Laser hair growth therapy is safe and painless. Laser technology has advanced providing precise, accurate procedures. Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is a breakthrough in non-surgical treatments for hair loss. With this therapy, patients wear a hat that emits a red light that is absorbed by the skin and hair follicles. As an FDA approved procedure, LLLT stimulates hair growth, increases blood flow, and stops hair loss from progressing. This is an outpatient procedure. Patients have the convenience of wearing the cap in their home or office when it suits their schedules. Worn as little as 20 minutes two to three times a week, patients achieve thicker, fuller hair in just six months.
Benefits of LLLT include the following:
- Effective for men and women
- No burning or scarring of the skin
- Full scalp coverage
- Promotes the growth of thicker, stronger, healthier hair
- Stimulates hair follicles for new growth
- Stops the progression of hair loss
