CRANSTON, R.I., Sept. 6 -- Low-level laser therapy is being promoted as a remedy for hair loss by at least one hair-restoration clinic.
Robert Leonard, founder and chief surgeon at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates--one of the first hair-restoration clinics in the US to offer the 5000 series cold-laser technology--said a device consisting of 21 rotating, soft low-level lasers can repair tissue with "impaired cellular metabolism" and stimulate blood circulation at the hair roots.
"It encourages regeneration of normal healthy tissues causing hair to grow thicker, stopping hair loss progression in 85% of patients," Leonard said.
"When used postoperatively with surgical hair transplantation, the newly transplanted hair follicles forego the typical three-month dormancy stage. Improvement in hair shaft quality, volume and evidence of regrowth are immediate," he added.
