Surgical procedures and treatments performed using lasers are still regarded as a state-of-the-art option. Any process involving lasers can instantly appear high-tech and futuristic, regardless of its efficiency.
Laser-based hair restoration is just one such exciting solution available today, but does it really work as well as other techniques? Join us as we take a closer look.
Hair restoration with laser light
There are two different types of laser light-based hair restoration treatments: Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and Laser Hair Transplantation. Both are totally different.
LLLT focuses on hair loss-prevention, typically used alongside other medically-approved remedies to halt balding. The treatments are administered on a weekly basis for around six months, and each involves transmitting laser light onto the scalp at very low levels.
At the end of this six-month course, the scalp is usually much healthier and any hair loss may be stopped.
Laser Hair Transplantation, on the other hand, is a cosmetic surgery. It’s similar to traditional hair transplant methods but its effectiveness is still in question.
Key issues with Laser Hair Transplantation
Laser Hair Transplantation is not a new technique in the hair restoration field, but is simply a new instrument applied to existing methods.
There are two approved hair restoration procedures available at the moment: Follicular Hair Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). These are based on transplanting grafts that have been removed from the donor area before being relocated into the patient’s recipient area.
To transplant these follicular unit (FU) grafts into the balding scalp, tiny holes have to be cut into the skin using an instrument similar to a needle. The units are implanted into the scalp one by one.
The laser technique is innovative because the holes are cut into the scalp by a strong laser light rather than the traditional needle-like instrument. While this sounds effective and fast in theory, experiences and opinions are divided so far.
In many cases, the laser light causes burns around the holes cut into the scalp, which prevents the healthy blood flow into the newly-implanted follicular units. Without adequate blood flow, the new grafts will be unable to survive and causes the transplanted hairs to fall out after the treatments.
