Laser Light Therapy As a Hair Loss Solution

Hair loss is a persistent problem for an enormous amount of men and women. There are several elements that influence hair loss, ranging from heredity to environmental influence to autoimmune disorders. Genetic pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause. For those suffering from pattern baldness, there are several options for hair restoration.

One such option is low-level laser light therapy. Low-level laser light therapy is an treatment option for people suffering from androgenetic alopecia who may not be eligible for surgical hair restoration and for those who have undergone transplantation as a supplemental treatment. This kind of therapy directly stimulates the patient’s hair follicles to strengthen them and promote hair growth.

Dr. Yates offers laser light therapy to his patients in two ways. At his recommendation, patients can receive this therapy during an in-office procedure, done 2 – 3 times per week for 20 – 40 minutes or as a convenient at-home solution. This at-home solution is made possible by the Capillus272™, a safe, proven, and effective product that has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of hair loss.

Capillus272™ treats hair loss at the root of the problem by using the latest innovative technology. The product is a dome-shaped flexible insert that fits inside your favorite baseball cap or hat so you can use it at home or on the go. Capillus272™ is typically worn for 30 minutes every other day, depending on Dr. Yates’ recommendation.

When activated, it emits cool laser light to stimulate hair follicles across the entire scalp. This increases micro-circulation and cellular metabolism, increasing blood flow and nutrient delivery directly to the hair follicles. With consistent treatment, studies show that low-level laser therapy can nourish hair follicles and increase hair counts by at least 50%.
