What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?
The HairMax LaserComb® uses a laser diode operating in the red portion of the visible light spectrum and is different from natural light in many ways. First, it is monochromatic, meaning all the energy is essentially one wavelength or color whereas a light bulb produces a broad spectrum of light and energy waves.
Laser energy is also collimated which means it is a tight beam of light energy that spreads or diverges only a little at great distances while a light bulb loses its brightness very quickly with distance. Laser energy is also coherent: the waves of light energy produced by a laser are synched or in phase with each other. And while all light consists of waves of energy these waves, such as those in a light bulb, are not organized or in sync with each other. These characteristics make laser energy a truly unique form of light energy.
Scientific evidence from clinical trials demonstrates that LLLT reverses miniaturization, increases number of hairs per follicular unit, and induces and prolongs the anagen phase (see macro images).
Evaluation of the Activity of Laser Doses on Ex-Vivo Hair Growth
This experimental study showed that laser energy applied to hair follicles ex-vivo stimulated elongation of hair.
