When was the last time you thought to yourself, “Am I losing more hair than normal?” Our hair falls out when we shower, brush, blow-dry, and even when we sleep. While it may be distressing to see all loose hair, shedding as much as 100 hairs a day is actually normal. In most cases, people won’t even notice daily hair loss or pay attention when it grows back. For some parts of the population, however, excessive hair loss can be truly alarming.
If you are in the early stages of a receding hairline or if you have noticed a significant amount of hair thinning, there are options available. Some treatment options Ava Laser Clinic can suggest will help to reduce or slow the hair loss, lowering your frustration in the process. Laser hair loss treatments is definitely a solution to look into.
Millions of people suffer from hair loss and their thinning hair can be caused by many different factors. This can range from illness to poor hair care. However, the most common reason for hair loss is genetics. Male and female pattern baldness affects as much as 40% of the population. It is most commonly seen in men, but women can be affected too. Other causes of hair loss are:
Hair loss affects how you look. It also affects how a person feels. Many people who suffer from hair loss or hair thinning can sink into depression or have lower levels of self-esteem. It can generate social anxiety, social withdrawal, and other anti-social behaviors.
In the past, people could only use topical creams, hormone medications, or surgery to correct hair loss. Some of these treatments were effective, while others were not. The risks of scarring or poor results often plagued those who were considering hair loss surgery, but with so few options on the market, many had to choose between the possible negative side effects or living with their hair they had left.
Thanks to recent advancements, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) can now be used as a hair loss treatment. The treatment uses FDA approved lasers to help treat the scalp and slow or stop the effects of hair loss. The lasers used are medical grade and stimulate the follicles on the scalp to grow more luxuriant, stronger hair.
According to scientific research, LLLT has been proven as an effective way to stimulate the scalp into re-growing hair. Lasers used for hair loss treatments also have no side effects, pain, or downtime required after the treatments. Most people only think about lasers for hair removal, but those operate at a higher level and burn the follicles. Hair loss lasers operate on a lower wavelength, which works to stimulate the follicles by increasing the circulation. This increased circulation forces the tissue to react. Instead of burning the skin or hair, this type of laser actually encourages hair to grow much faster!
There are a lot of hair loss treatments on the market, but very few of them are truly effective. If you are interested in a treatment that will help improve your hairline and give you thicker hair, then LLLT is a perfect choice. The experts at Ava Laser Clinic are standing by to evaluate your hair loss and form an LLLT treatment plan based on your specific problem.
