These days, there’s a wide range of hair loss treatments available on the market. However, one which is gaining in popularity is laser treatment. You can even find home laser devices which promise to treat your hair loss and accelerate hair growth. The question is, do they work, and could laser treatment be the best treatment option for you?
Are home laser devices effective?
Home laser devices have become extremely popular due to their convenience and lower cost compared to professional laser treatment. However, no two devices are the same. As companies look to cash in on the hair loss market, they’ve developed products which aren’t as effective as you might think.
In the US there is an FDA approved device available to purchase, but even this may not prove effective. It all depends upon the cause of your hair loss and its severity. Those suffering from very mild hair loss may experience good results with a home device, but it is risky choosing the best one. Sadly, the majority of hair loss sufferers are unlikely to see much benefit from these home devices.
Is professional laser therapy worthwhile?
If you are looking to go down the laser treatment route, it’s definitely better to get it done at professional clinic. The lasers are higher-tech and are much more effective than those sold in your local store.
It’s actually often used alongside other hair loss treatments in order to produce the best results. In particular, the lasers work by increasing blood flow to the scalp. In previous studies, laser therapy has been known to boost blood flow to the scalp by as much as 50%.
What’s most impressive about laser therapy is it’s one of the few treatments which can slow down the progression of genetic related hair loss. While it isn’t suitable for everyone, it can prove to be a fantastic solution for mild to moderate hair loss conditions.
Before deciding whether or not laser treatment is the right route to go down, it’s important to seek advice from a hair specialist. They will be able to tell you whether laser therapy is the best option for you.
