What is Low-Level Laser Therapy?
If you have noticed early signs of hair loss, such as thinning areas or bald patches, you may be a great candidate for a nonsurgical treatment, such as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). A fantastic way to improve healthy areas and stimulate dormant follicles, LLLT treats hair disorders, such as female and male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher provides low-level laser therapy cap treatments for men and women to use from the comfort of their home. LLLT can be used alone to treat early signs of hair thinning or baldness, or it may be provided in combination with other medications or therapies.

How Does Low-Level Laser Therapy Work?
Dr. Boucher will examine your scalp and hair before discussing treatment options, like LLLT. He frequently suggests LLLT to both male and female patients with mild to moderate hair loss. As soon as Dr. Boucher creates your personalized hair loss treatment plan, he will provide you with the LLLT cap device and instructions for at-home use. The cap is typically worn for 30 minutes, 3 – 4 days a week. By emitting low-level laser energy, the treatment works to stimulate the cells within the hair follicle to aid hair growth. With consistent use of the LLLT tool, many patients are able to see visible results after about 4 – 6 months. You may want to still occasionally use the LLLT device after reaching your hair goals to help you maintain your best results.
