Low level laser therapy

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive procedure used to reverse hair loss. Rather than apply a cream, pop a pill, or undergo surgery, LLLT allows you to use a device to cover an area of your scalp with red, near-infrared, or infrared laser light. When applied for 10 to 30 minutes every other day, this light prompts dormant hair follicles to produce new hair. The whole experience is painless and side-effect free!

Unfortunately, when something sounds too good to be true, it tends to be. LLLT treatment is often done in clinics, which means continually commuting to a place that offers this service for at least a few months. If you’d rather do your own treatment at home, buying your own LLLT device can be very expensive (around a few thousand dollars a pop).

Like other hair loss treatments, LLLT is likely to be most effective if you try and treat your hair loss early on. That being said, if you’ve already tried more common treatments, like minoxidil or finasteride, LLLT may be the answer for you.
