Low-Level Laser Hair Therapy (LLLT)
Hair restoration with laser involves the application of a low-level laser commonly referred to as a cold laser.Laser therapy can help boost the healing process on the newly transplanted regions after a hair transplant and reduce post surgery side effects like swelling and redness.Apart from LLLTbeinguseful inexpediting the rate of hair growth in operated areas, it also stimulates the growth of hair in thinning regions.
How Does it Work?
The Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) process is a clinically approved form of treatment for hair loss.In LLLT we expose the skin to a light frequency of 650 nm to stimulate cells beneath the scalp to produce more protein.Keratin is derived from protein and is one of the mainstructural components of hair. Higher levels of Protein lead to stronger levels of keratin and therefore growth of healthier hair. This technology works best on areas where hair is still present but thinning.
Additionally to expedite the hair growth process Low-Level Laser Therapy also increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is responsible for initialising the release of nitric oxide which triggers advanced hair development and growth. LLLTalso stimulates the hair follicles by increasing the rate of blood circulation to the hair follicles as well as the entire scalp.
At Fortes Clinic we use a 5-module laser therapy device with each of the modules transmitting energy from 364 sources. The device has 6 different frequencies that can be adjusted to suit each patient accordingly.
LLLT isusually needed twice a week to produce effective resultsandthe process takes less than a half hour. The laser therapy will be responsible for the stopping of hair lossand trigger the hair regrowth process. Once the desired results are achieved therapy canbe reduced to once a week.These will help maintain hair growth.

Is Laser Hair Therapy Dangerous?
The type of laser used in hair therapy is a cold laser that is well regulated and has no heating effect.
Low-level laser hair therapy is categorised as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser and it meets all the global standards of safety. The light from this low-level laser is a form of compressed light that is emitted from the cold red part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. It is different from the natural light we know because it’s only one of the spectrum colours in a columnated form, i.e. the beam of light is concentrated on a specific spot. This is what allows light from the laser to penetrate without the generation of heat withno damage to the scalp.
There are no side effects with this procedure and it is completely safe.
