Hair Loss Treatment through LLLT

Posted by | Health care | No Comments

Unveiling the secrets of Laser Light energy

Scientist and researchers have proven that light energy works on the principle of Photobiostimulation, thr absorption of light energy by body cells, Low Level Laser Therapy, commonly abbreviated as LLLT follows the same principle for Hair Growth.

What is LLLT?

Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT is a kind of laser light energy treatment used in physical therapy that uses Low-level (Low-Power) lasers or light-emitting diodes to alter cellular function. In other words: The technology activates the aging and dying cells to increase their effectiveness in hair growth and controlling hair loss.

Mechanism of LLLT in treating hair loss

The hair cycle is divided in 3 stages. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and new strands of hair begin to form. The most important part here is that, the laser phototherapy is assumed to stimulate Anagen re-entry in Telogen hair follicles. This results in prolonged duration of the Anagen phase (The phase when the Hair Shaft grows) that eventually increases the rate of proliferation in active Anagen hair follicles and prevents premature Catagen development. Remember, the longer the hair stays in the Anagen phase, the longer it will grow.

llltEvidence has also suggested that, LLLT may alter cell metabolism through increased ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate-ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism) production, modulation of reactive oxygen species, and induction of transcription factors. These transcription factors in return cause protein synthesis that triggers further effects down-stream, such as increased cell proliferation and migration, alteration in the levels of cytokines, growth factors and inflammatory mediators, and increased tissue oxygenation.

In laymen’s language; the light energy from LLLT entices the new hair follicle in Telogen phase that eventually increases the rate of proliferation of hair follicles in active Anagen phase.

How to identify the right laser machine that provides LLLT technology for home and clinical use

Since the LLLT technology received US FDA clearance, there are many players in the market that offer infra-red light devices, that makes it quite difficult to diffrenttiate pure laser diodes from the cheaper Infra-red devices. To deal with this information assymetry, one must ask/see for 2 things: Diodes are generally brighter and uncomfotable to look at directly and a good laser machine will be supported with clinical trials.

HLCC is one such company that claims to be one of the pioneers of LLLT for Hair Growth. Their machines and products are proven to work by clinical trials that have published in various journals in the world.

Conclusion

Based on the studies demonstrating LLLT’s effects on promoting graft survival, it may be concluded that it can be an effective treatment for androgenetic aloepecia/hereditary hair loss.

Scope for Further Study

It could be suggested that Low level laser therapy for Hair Growth may have a potential to be used post hair transplant surgery to fasten the healing process, enhance graft survival and faster growth of the grafts.

 

 

ROLE OF DHT IN MALE PATTERN BALDNESS (Androgenic Alopecia)

Posted by | Health care | No Comments

Every man understands virtually what and how to optimize testosterone’s – obviously with good reason. But in almost every situation of like #God!_Iam_getting_bald, chances are very less where they actually understand the possible primary reason of losing those strands, a much stronger male androgen which is called as Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

img08

The stage starts with the conversion of testosterone to DHT with the aid of the enzyme Type II 5-alpha-reductace, which is held in prostate, testes, hair follicles, and adrenal glands.

Male-Pattern-Baldness (1)

Coming to the hair follicles, the dermal papilla is responsible for the growth of hair. The papilla cells divide and differentiate to form new hair follicles. Just like the root of a plant, papilla makes its contact with blood capillaries to get essential nutrition for proper hair follicle growth. The DHT androgen gets attached to the papilla which undermines the absorption of vital nutrition requirements and eventually affects the divide and differentiation part of new hair follicles. Hence the follicle resting stage gets longer and growing phase shorter, which then leads the hair follicle to the miniaturization stage and eventually to Male Pattern Baldness

Experts say that 95% cases of male pattern baldness are caused due to adverse effect of DHT on hair follicles. Down the line it is again those chromosomes and genetic science that decide how much DHT would be produced – because more it is produced, the greater and more widespread the miniaturization would evolve, resulting in evolution of hair loss stages.

How Laser Regrowth Treatment Works?

Posted by | Health care | No Comments

Lasers are widely used in medicine, in industry, in the military, and of course, as weapons in science-fiction. The laser’s energy used to stimulate hair growth is visible in the red light spectrum. Their use in treating hair loss and other medical conditions is defined as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). LLLT is sometimes included under a broader definition of photo therapy called “low-level light therapy” where the light-emitting device may be a laser or a light-emitting diode (LED). Only laser energy has been proven effective in the treatment of hereditary hair loss whereas photo therapy using lasers and LED’s have numerous uses in medicine.

Laser Regrowth Treatment

Laser Regrowth Treatment

Light from a laser has an effect on your body when molecules of the target tissue absorb the specific wavelength of light. When light energy is absorbed by target tissue molecules, the energy level of the molecules is increased and the molecules respond by “working off” the excess energy with adaptive changes. These changes may be chemical or physical and they may have biological effects on the target tissue or surrounding tissues.

Laser hair treatment works on the principle of healing wounded tissues. It stimulates the blood supply in the scalp with appropriate wavelength of light.

It helps in healing the existing hair and helps in stimulating new hair growth. Men and women who start taking laser therapy treatment can notice the results within weeks. It is quick, pain free and with no side effects.

Laser light penetratesthe scalp tissue, and increases blood supply, protein synthesis and cell metabolism. It is said that sub cellular activity breaks down the collection of DHT and therefore helps in controlling hair loss.

Recently given FDA clearance for stopping Hair Loss, it has now joined the elite list of FDA approved treatments for controlling Hair Loss.

Hand-held devices come with recommended protocols for home use. LLLT in a medical setting may require regular therapy sessions over a period of months. As with the medical treatment of androgenetic alopecia, hair restoration using LLLT is not a one-time “fix” for hair loss. It must be repeated at intervals to maintain results; medical treatment also must be maintained to retain results.

  • Corticosteroids- It helps in suppressing the immune system. It is injected into the places with hair loss. It is also available in cream and lotion form which can easily be massaged on hair loss patches.
  • Minoxidil-It may help some patients with primary hair loss. It can be easily used by adults and children. It can be applied twice a day to the scalp, beard or brows. You can see the results in 3monts.
  • Anthralin- Dose of Anthralin helps in altering immune function. A tar like substance is applied on the skin for 50-60 minutes. After that it is washed off to avoid itching and irritation.
  • Diphencyprone- This medicine basically helps a lot on bald skin. It can even cause small allergic reaction like itching, swelling and redness. It is believed by dermatologists that it reaction tricks help in sending white blood cells to surface of the scalp.
  • Other treatment- Sometimes there is major hair loss problem, so patients have to mix 2 treatments to boost success in hair loss treatment.

Before taking any treatment always make sure about the possible side effects of any medicines because some medicines have very bad reaction.
