Laser Hair Loss Treatment FAQ

Most Asked Question About Laser Hair Therapy

red light hair regrowth treatment Tupelo MSLaser hair loss treatment therapy for men and women of all ages that suffer from extreme Alopecia to mild thinning hair. This hair loss solution has been gaining ground as a real solution. We always get a lot of questions about this treatment and we hope to answer those questions here.

Does Laser Hair Therapy Work?
Laser hair loss treatment therapy does work well and has been recognized by the FDA as a viable therapy for men and women suffering from hereditary hair loss and hair thinning (androgenetic alopecia). Not everyone will benefit from laser hair therapy however, especially if you have very little to no hair. It is recommended that you have a hair loss consultation where a trained hair loss specialist can examine your scalp and hair follicles to determine what the cause of your hair loss is, if you are a good candidate for laser hair therapy treatments with a viable opportunity for a successful outcome.

How Many Treatments are Needed?
During a hair loss consultation, your scalp will be examined to determine the health and state of your hair follicles. A laser hair therapy treatment session usually takes about 20 minutes. To get the best results possible, you will need to continue treatments for about a year with two to three treatments per week.

When Will I See Results?
The results you will get from low-level laser light therapy will start to become visible in about 24 to 36 weeks. You will need to be vigilant and keep up with your treatments with each treatment lasting 20 to 25 minutes. Of course, each person is different and some may see results sooner while others may take a bit longer.

What Side-Effects Are There?
One reason laser hair therapy is becoming so popular is not only for the results you can get but for the fact that low-level laser hair therapy treatments don’t burn or cut the skin and there are no known side effects.

Low Level Laser Hair Therapy for Hair Loss

Laser hair therapy uses therapeutic lasers approved safe by the FDA for purposes that fully comply with federal standards for laser safety. Laser hair therapy has been around for many decades and more men and women are drawn to it as a proven non-surgical solution for hair loss for men and women and to gain hair that is thicker and fuller and healthier looking.

Hair Loss or Hair Shedding: Telling the Difference

Hair Shedding & Hair Loss Are Not the Same Thing

Custom Human Hair Wigs for WomenA common question you may have is “Am I losing too much hair?” For most people, the good news is they are not actually seeing a significant amount of hair loss. What they may be seeing is hair shedding, which is the process of losing your hair through the normal hair growth process. Knowing when you should seek help is important as losing too much hair could point to an underlying health issue or complication.

What Is Hair Shedding?

Our natural hair growth cycles last between two and seven years. During that time, not all of your hair follicles are producing hair. In fact, we typically only have about 30 percent of our hair or more not growing at any given time. This means that at various times throughout the hair growth process, it is normal to see hair fall out or shedding. Sometimes it may seem like a lot of hair falling out. This hair shedding is a normal, natural process. In this three-stage cycle of hair growth, life and dormancy, there is one stage that involves hair loss. It simply falls out and the hair follicle goes into a dormant stage for a period of time.

Hair that falls out in this manner is called hair shedding. You should see hair shedding every day. On a daily basis, we lose between 50 to 100 hairs. You find this hair in your shower or in your brush. This hair shedding can result in a significant amount of hair falling out. It normally results in hair regrowing from the same hair follicle after the dormant stage.

There are some situations that hair shedding will occur in clumps. While hair shedding isn’t uncommon, it can be worrisome for some individuals. It is common for hair shedding to happen in the following situations:

• You’ve lost more than 20 pounds.
• You had a high fever.
• You are a woman that just gave birth.
• You’re under a significant amount of stress – physically or emotionally.
• You’ve undergone an operation or other physical ailments.
• You are a woman that stopped taking birth control pills.
• You’re recovering from a significant illness.

If any of these things have happened to you, the result could be a sudden burst of hair shedding. Without doing anything about it, your hair will regrow again.

When Is It True Hair Loss?

Of course, hair loss isn’t uncommon either. If you suspect what you have going on is hair loss or balding, you should consult with your medical doctor or a hair restoration professional. For hair loss to happen, something has to cause your hair to stop growing. There can be several reasons this can happen. Some common causes of hair loss include:

• Your immune system triggers hair loss.
• You’re taking medications or undergoing procedures or treatments such as chemotherapy that stop hair growth and cause your hair to fall out.
• You use hair products that are damaging.
• You have hereditary hair loss, known medically as androgenetic alopecia.
• You have a compulsion to pull your hair (trichotillomania).
• You tie your hair up so tightly that it pulls it out (traction alopecia).

If you believe the hair loss you are experiencing is sudden and you worry about whether it will grow back, see your dermatologist as the earliest opportunity.

Laser Hair Therapy for Hair Loss: How Effective Is It?

Laser Hair Therapy for MenIf you are struggling to cope with hair loss, you’re likely familiar with the sea of hair loss treatments claiming to regrow your hair. While some treatments can reverse hair loss, others have harmful side effects or ingredients that can irritate the scalp, leading to dandruff, dry scalp, or allergic reactions. However, there is a drug-free hair loss treatment that can help to alleviate hair loss without the harmful side effects.

Laser hair therapy is one of the latest non-surgical approaches to treat thinning hair, hair loss, and other problems associated with the scalp and has thus far shown to have a positive effect on decelerating the effects of hair loss.

The revolutionary treatment can improve hair volume and hair shaft quality, helping to ease the anxiety associated with hair loss. Continue reading to learn more about how laser hair therapy works, as well as some of the benefits and caveats associated with the treatment.

How Do Laser Treatments Work?

Laser hair loss treatment therapy works through the use of therapeutic low-level lasers, which deliver light energy directly to the scalp, increasing blood flow and stimulating hair growth. During treatment,  a device is placed over the scalp and the low-energy light is delivered directly to the affected areas. It’s important to note that laser treatments do not use thermal energy (heat) to treat the scalp and it’s not painful at all. In fact, our clients are able to sit comfortably during therapy, often while perusing a magazine or relaxing.

What Are The Benefits Associated With Laser Hair Loss Treatments?

Both men and women in the early stages of hair loss can benefit from these types of treatments. The treatment is safe as it uses low-level lasers, which meet all international safety standards and legislative specifications of a “non-significant risk” product. Laser therapy has been shown to be quite effective in both men and women when used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery as well as other hair loss treatment procedures.

Here are a few of the benefits associated with laser hair loss treatments:

  • Increases the blood supply to the scalp after only one treatment
  • Stimulates hair follicles
  • Fuller, shinier, softer, and thicker hair
  • No adverse effects have been reported
  • It requires minimal time commitment
  • Increased hair strength and elasticity

Who Is Laser Hair Loss Treatment Best Suited For?

Unfortunately, this therapy method isn’t suitable for everyone with hair loss. In fact, it’s always wise to consult with your doctor or a trained specialist before you undergo laser hair therapy treatments.

The reason for this is simple: if a thyroid problem or iron deficiency is causing your hair loss, laser treatment will offer little to help you. Laser hair therapy is primarily used to potentially treat hair loss that’s caused by genetics (a.k.a. pattern balding or androgenetic/androgenic alopecia).

An Evaluation By A Trained Hair Loss Professional Is Essential

If you’re concerned and ridden with angst over hair loss, it’s crucial that you get evaluated in-person by a trained hair loss professional as laser hair loss treatment programs are only effective if you have enough living hair follicles.

Top Natural Ways to Treat Your Hair

hair healthWe all have those bad hair days, where nothing stays in place. Natural hair also gets damaged and loses its luster from time to time. Other factors such as chlorinated pool water or the dry and cold winter air even cause such conditions.

Revitalizing salon treatment is often the most viable solution. However, as this short article will reveal, there are plenty of D.I.Y. natural hair treatments. Here is a roundup of some of the most effective natural remedies for healthy hair.

Natural Aloe Vera Hair Conditioner

Aloe Vera juice is the secret sauce you need to keep hair hydrated for longer. Chockfull of minerals and vitamins, aloe Vera, extracts also soothe itching while boosting the scalp’s healing process.

All you need to do is apply a liberal amount of the gel and allow it to sit for 30 minutes. If you don’t care for the strong smell, you can apply the gel directly on to the hair for a 15-minute soak.

Vinegar for Dry Hair

White vinegar boosts your natural hair’s shine by closing the cuticles. Such treatments make highlights more prominent by re-balancing the pH effectively, reducing the production of excess sebum and dandruff. A strong odor and scalp irritation are major drawbacks, so you should opt for diluted treatments.

Coconut Oil Revitalization

Coconut treatments are packed with proteins that prevent breakage and protects hair fibers while keeping them supple. Aside from the enchanting smell, it’s also proven to be effective at penetrating hair follicles. For in-depth treatment apply to the root, let it soak for 20 minutes and wash.

Eggs Are Truly Incredible Hair Treatments

Eggs are nature’s best-kept hair treatment. The yolk has natural moisturizing fats and proteins, while the white has enzymes that feed on bacteria. To treat brittle hair, use the yolk, for oily hair, the white, and you can use the whole egg for normal hair.


The sugar enzymes found in honey release hydrogen peroxide that enhances hair highlights. Honey also repairs superficial hair layers and evens down cuticles. Please avoid spreading honey liberally as it would need more shampoo to rinse your hair.

Onion Juice

This juice has anti-bacterial properties that prevent scalp infections, hydrate the hair while promoting growth. Such an ingredient also prevents premature greying. This juice also adds body to the hair rids of dandruff, fungal infections and scalp acne.

Regardless of the treatment you use on your hair, it is important to take good care of your locks which can help prevent hair loss later in life. If you are suffering from hair loss contact us to schedule a free, confidential appointment.  We will work one-on-one with you to help deterine the cause of your hair loss, the extent of hair loss, and find the best solution for you to get your hair back and live the life you deserve.

New Year’s Resolution Time: Doing Something About Your Hair Loss

New Year’s Resolutions – Tupelo MS Hair Restoration Studio

hair loss restoration treatment tupelo oxford starkville msStarting off the new year always comes with a host of New Year’s resolutions. Some may include going to the gym or eating healthier. But if you are a man or woman who hates to look in the mirror because all you can fixate on is how thin your hair has become, the New Year is the perfect time to finally do something about your hair loss and restore a full head of amazingly great looking hair in the latest styles or in your old favorite style.

If you are a man or woman in the Tupelo MS area who is suffering from thinning hair and balding, we’ve gathered some information for you to help you make that decision to finally do something about it and do something for you.

How Badly Does Hair Loss Really Bother You?

Yes, it may be true that hair loss may not seem like a big deal when you compare it to some of the other types of health issues people face. If you take a look back through history, you will see that our hair has always been important. People will often judge your health by how your hair looks. Our hair can make us feel great, just think back to your last good hair day and you see what we mean. Your confidence level goes up when you have great looking hair.  And people more often than not make an initial judgement about us based on our appearance – whether we look healthy and fresh.  Hair loss can make you look 10 years older than you are (or feel).

A dermatologist and Harvard Medical School instructor Maryanne Senna, MD, who specializes in hair loss from an evolutionary perspective say that having hair that is thick and luscious has traditionally been a sign of youth, fitness, and good health. For a person to lose their hair it can be difficult to accept and for women, it can be even more detrimental to their self-esteem.

Hair Loss: What Can You Do?

Some people that have thinning hair may turn to the latest fad. Whether it be a new supplement or shampoo that comes with a promise of working or going on the internet where there is no shortage of information that is questionable at best. It’s a natural reaction to want to find a cure for your thinning hair. The problem with hair loss is that it is often tied to underlying genetic or medical issues. To really find a treatment that will work you need to first find out the real cause of your hair loss.

Some of the reasons that people in the Tupelo MS area (and elsewhere) may develop hair loss can range from stress, autoimmune disorders, hormonal imbalances, and many, many other causes. By seeing a hair loss specialist, they can help you find the real cause of your hair loss, and help you find the right solution that not only will restore your hair but increase your self-esteem.

hair for the holidays

Don’t Let Hair Loss Keep You From Enjoying the Holiday Season

mens hair loss replacement tupelo oxford starkville msOne of my favorite times of the year has to be November through January. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, New Years and beyond give you so many opportunities to spend quality time with friends and family, enjoying special times together and creating memories to last a lifetime.

For me, it has been several years since I have been able to go back home for any of the holidays. Life and distance have just gotten in the way and just made going home complicated.

A couple of years ago I made the decision that I just had to get back home for the holidays and see family and friends again. I have missed seeing them in person and reminiscing with telling stories, laughing and of course the food.

The thought of going back home was actually bitter-sweet. Yes, the opportunity to see everyone was exciting but I couldn’t help feeling a little nervous about how they would see me after all this time. I have had a lot of thinning hair develop over the last couple of years. The thought of seeing dread on those familiar faces made me a little unsettled.

Getting downright nostalgic, I started looking at old photos. To see everyone, including myself over the last decade really made me take notice of how much my own hair has changed. Just how much hair loss I have had made me sad. Once again, I started dreading even more seeing everyone’s faces and the sad looks from them on my hair or lack thereof.

I decided I couldn’t deal with the thought of not doing something about my hair loss before going back home. I started researching online on hair loss treatment and hair replacement studios in Mississippi near me. I found one near me and I made an appointment for a free hair loss consultation.

During my appointment, they examined my scalp and bald spots, asked about my family history. I not only started to feel like there was hope but the people at North Mississippi Hair Loss Solutions took my anxiety away as they discussed the treatment options they thought would work for me and the type of hair loss I was experiencing.

I wanted to have hair that was similar to what I had seen on myself a decade ago. Hair that was fuller, and healthy. I made the decision to go forward as I really didn’t have anything to lose.

When it was time for me to come back in for my hair replacement, I was literally blown away and couldn’t stop smiling. Once they started putting it on, my appearance changed so much before my own eyes.

Looking in the mirror I couldn’t believe that in just one afternoon I was looking at myself again with a full head of hair. As I ran my fingers through the hair there was no difference. It was my hair again.

When the time came and I was back home, not a single person glanced at my hair. I really didn’t expect them to but I was so glad to see they saw me in the way I wanted them to. I know deep down my friends and family wouldn’t care how much hair I had. They would just be happy to see me.

It was more of an internal struggle and how I saw myself and that affected my self-confidence. I never gave my hair another thought and my visit back home for the holidays that I was so excited for was absolutely great.

If you suffer from hair loss don’t let the anxiety keep you from enjoying this time of year and getting together with the ones that you love. At North Mississippi Hair Loss Solutions our hair loss specialists will help you, so you can have the hair you want and get your confidence back. Call today to schedule a free hair loss consultation and see what we can do for you.

Scarring Alopecia: What Can Be Done?

Scarring Alopecia Affecting More African-American Women

female hair loss treatment for scarring alopecia mississippiHave you ever seen Rihanna or Nicki Minaj in concert or at an awards show and noticed their beautiful and sometimes outrageous hairstyles? Or how often they change their looks in an instant? In order to keep up these appearances they, like many other women turn to hair extensions or weaves. Women who use human hair weaves can flawlessly change their look when it’s done right. Be sure to seek out a professional if you’re considering hair extensions or weaves.

Studies have shown an increase in scarring alopecia in African-American women who often wear hairstyles that cause traction or the constant pulling of hair follicles. This inflammation of the hair follicle is called folliculitis and often results in hair loss. Hair weaves typically can be quite costly and many women opt to leave their weaves in for months in order to justify the cost of the weaves. When they are left in too long the tugging of the follicles can lead to this serious hair loss condition.

Related: Female Hair Loss: Aging & Your Hair

There are steps women can take to help prevent folliculitis and female pattern baldness from occurring. The vast majority of reputable hair specialists encourage women with curly hair to avoid over-processing their hair and to rely on their hairdresser to professionally apply relaxers in a salon setting at about six to eight week intervals.

Additionally, it is important to avoid having a weave sewn in too tightly. When it’s pulled too tight it can lead to permanent hair loss. If you’re already noticing some hair loss consult a professional and try using special shampoos that will kill existing bacteria on the surface of the scalp. By killing the bacteria you can help prevent folliculitis.

If you routinely use weaves and you are experiencing hair loss we encourage you to schedule your free, confidential consultation today. Meet with a trained North Mississippi hair loss specialist at our state-of-the-art center in Tupelo. There is no charge or obligation! Your hair loss consultation will provide you the information you need to understand your hair loss and know what can be done about it.

When Is The Best Time to Start Hair Loss Treatment?

Tupelo Hair Replacement TreatmentsLegions of men and women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss, yet it’s not always easy to decipher when it’s time to opt for hair restoration.

According to Statistic Brain, approximately 35 million U.S. men and 21 million U.S. women experience hair loss; however, only 811,363 hair loss sufferers worldwide seek professional treatment (Source).

We understand taking the first step in seeking treatment is difficult, especially if you are still in the early stages of hair thinning or loss, or if you are unsure how to go about it. Acting sooner than later is a great way to slow hair loss, and in some cases, even prevent it from progressing further. Remember, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your very best. It’s never too early or too late to realize that you can do something to combat your hair loss.

This post explores your options if you are just beginning to lose your hair or are worried about losing your hair in the future.

The Impact On Self-Image & Self-Confidence

Loss of self-confidence and the desire to feel good about oneself again is perhaps the most common reason our patients opt for the procedure. For some people it may seem superficial, yet human beings naturally yearn for that unique feeling of being self-assured and desirable. Our patients have claimed that having a full head of hair not only improves their physical appearance, it also helps reduce their sense of helplessness and anxiety.

As many studies have suggested, confidence plays a major role in a person’s ability to be successful, whether it’s related to one’s career, dating, friendships or social life.

Far too many patients we’ve consulted with over the years acknowledge that the gradual onset of prolonged hair loss and its seemingly irreversible consequences has affected their self-esteem. In turn, this makes them feel more self-conscious about daily personal interactions. These dark feelings can lead to withdrawal from everyday social activities and can be a cause for hesitation before considering new business opportunities.

If you feel as though having hair will help you gain a more positive outlook on life and achieve a more outgoing demeanor, you should absolutely consider speaking to a hair restoration specialist about your various options, including hair transplant surgery, non-surgical hair replacement and – if you are in the early stages of hair loss – FDA cleared low level laser hair therapy as soon as you feel comfortable doing so.

Visiting A Hair Loss Professional for an Evaluation is Crucial

As soon as you notice the first signs of thinning hair or hair loss you should visit a dermatologist, a Trichology specialist or a hair loss professional.  They will be able to assess your situation and help you to determine the best plan of action going forward. Genetic hair loss is typically caused by testosterone combining with other enzymes to form dihydrotestoserone commonly known as DHT.  DHT gets into the hair follicle and blocks the hair shaft from growing properly.  The hair shaft begins to miniaturize until finally blocking the follicle from producing hair. It’s important to keep in mind that this is not an instant process; rather, it happens over years, even starting right after puberty.

Advancements in medicine and advancements in technology have made treating the symptoms of hair loss a successful solution plan.  A good hair retention plan starts with early treatments. Remember: prevention is easier than correction.

Consider Laser Hair Therapy If You’re In The Beginning Stages Of Hair Loss

Do you experience signs of thinning hair and are anxious that you will continue to lose more? If you’re nodding in agreement, you may want to look into laser hair treatment. Laser hair loss treatment is a maintenance program that works to slow down thinning hair and in some cases has stopped hair loss in its tracks.

Low-level laser hair loss treatment is a non-chemical, non-surgical treatment for men suffering the devastating effects of hair loss, helping them to achieve the appearance of thicker, fuller, shinier, and healthier looking hair. It’s recommended to initiate laser hair loss treatment as soon as a person sees signs of thinning hair, as individuals in the early stages of hair loss tend to have better results.

Benefits of Laser Hair Treatments:

  • Increases the blood supply to the scalp after only one treatment
  • Stops the progression of hair loss in 85% of patients.
  • Stimulates hair follicles
  • Fuller, shinier, softer, and thicker hair
  • No adverse effects have been reported
  • It requires minimal time commitment
  • Increased hair strength and elasticity

Physicians have shown broad acceptance of this technology as an effective treatment for both men and women suffering the devastating effects f hair loss. With laser hair therapy, you can achieve thicker, fuller, shinier, and healthier looking hair.

The Benefits Of Gradual Hair Restoration

While some people want their hair back as quickly as humanly possible, a sudden drastic change isn’t right for everybody. In these cases, it may be prudent to look into gradual hair restoration, an option that works to attract attention to your new look not your hair replacement.

With gradual hair restoration, your full hair replacement is completed in stages over the course of a few months— the stylist will subtly add more new hair each time. You may still receive questions from coworkers, but people won’t be able to tell what you’re doing. Essentially, it’s a great method if you want to keep your hair restoration efforts discreet while enjoying immediate results.

scalp psoriasis

Dealing with the Effects of Scalp Psoriasis

scalp psoriasisHave you noticed itchy scaly skin invading your scalp? Has the itch become so severe that you are even experiencing upsetting hair loss? This issue can be due to a skin disease called scalp psoriasis. As most of the symptoms of scalp psoriasis are temporary, hair loss and itchy scalp can still be an embarrassing issue that is hard for some people to cope with. Lack of confidence can hinder performance in our daily activities and therefore it’s beneficial to utilize this article for tips to cope with hair loss caused by scalp psoriasis.

What Is Scalp Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory disease that causes scaly skin. This type of skin disease appears as red scaling, slightly raised bumps that are frequently seen on the elbows and knees but also commonly occurs on the scalp. This scaly rash on the scalp is also extremely itchy, which can lead to hair loss. Scalp psoriasis can also extend beyond the scalp and reach down to the forehead. Sometimes, it extends to the back of the neck or appears behind the ears. This skin disease can be really uncomfortable and make people feel very self conscious about their appearance. Psoriasis affects everyone differently but is a disease that typically lasts a lifetime. However, for some, psoriasis completely clears up for months or even years at a time.

What Causes Scalp Psoriasis?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers estimate that at least 50% of the people who have plaque psoriasis will have at least one flare-up on the scalp. Regardless of where psoriasis forms, the cause will be the same. The skin disease develops when a person’s immune system has faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow quicker than usual with new skin cells forming in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells and these skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin, causing patches of psoriasis to appear (Source).

Related: How Does Trichotillomania Affect Your Hair and Scalp?

What Are the Symptoms?

Scalp psoriasis affects everyone differently and can appear in large or small patches anywhere on the scalp and beyond the scalp. Larger patches are challenging and uncomfortable while smaller patches are easier to hide with different hairstyles. The following are some symptoms that can occur from scalp psoriasis:

  • Dry Scalp: The scalp becomes extremely dry, which can lead to cracks and even bleeding.
  • Itchiness: Scalp psoriasis is itchy and in most cases is mild but in more severe cases can cause intense and continuous scratching.
  • Reddish Rash: some patches can be extremely inflamed, and some may only be slightly noticeable up close.
  • Flaky Scalp: the scalp can become flaky and look very similar to dandruff.
  • Temporary Hair Loss: The patches of dry skin, flakiness and intense itching can all lead to patches of temporary hair loss.

How To Cope with Scalp Psoriasis Hair Loss

The first tip to coping with scalp psoriasis hair loss is to not stress out and do what you can to avoid itching, which further irritates the skin. Be gentle when washing your hair and remember this skin disease isn’t due to something you are doing wrong so don’t beat yourself up over it. Next, if you feel embarrassed or self-conscious, find a solution that makes you feel more confident so you can regularly function throughout the day without constantly feeling insecure. Some people choose to wear hats or custom wigs to cover any patches of hair loss or thinning. This is a viable solution but be sure if you do so, the items are not further irritating the skin and making the issue worse. Ultimately, the best solution is to talk to a dermatologist or hair restoration professional who can provide a confidential hair loss evaluation. They will provide you with complete information regarding causes of hair loss and specific treatment for hair replacement and prevention options tailored to your individual situation and lifestyle.


Female Hair Loss Restoration - Tupelo, Mississippi

The Truth About Laser Hair Therapy

Female Hair Loss Restoration - Tupelo, MississippiLaser hair therapy is a relatively new treatment option for both men and women who suffer from the destructive effects of hair loss. However, like many other new technologies, laser therapy is often misunderstood, leading many to spread false information. Information is published and spread quicker than ever in today’s increasingly digital world with misinformation spreading after just a few keystrokes. Ultimately, this makes it difficult for hair loss sufferers to access important information.

This post covers just a few of the most pervasive myths surrounding laser hair therapy. Get the truth about the common misconceptions below, and post your own questions about laser therapy in the comment section of this article.

Laser Hair Therapy Only Works For Women

One of the oddest misconceptions about laser hair therapy is that it is exclusively for women. While it is true that women might have limited hair restoration options due to the fact that female hair loss occurs in a dispersed fashion that is often difficult to treat with surgery, men are equally good candidates for laser hair therapy.

Treatment Causes Burning Or Discomfort

If you’ve heard that laser hair therapy causes pain or a burning sensation, you can rest assured that this is completely false. The vast majority of laser hair therapy patients feel little to nothing while receiving their treatment as the “cold” lasers used are tuned to a specific wavelength and power which provides the beneficial effect and nothing more.

The amount of power that is emitted is roughly equivalent to a laser pointer– a traditional light bulb emits more power than the diodes in our lasers.

While there are more powerful lasers that use high power light beams in the medical community, the lasers used in Low Level Laser Light Therapy are nowhere near that abrasive.  Any warmth that a patient feels is usually the result of blood flow and cellular activity.

In fact, with the devices we use, the most you can expect to feel is a slight tingling feeling during your treatment. Remember – the lasers used in hair therapy are not the same as the lasers used for laser hair removal!

Laser Hair Therapy Isn’t Safe

Many of the misconceptions surrounding laser hair therapy are related to the use of the word ‘laser’. The very word can conjure up images of sci-fi headsets burning heads with laser weapons; yet, the reality stands in stark contrast, so let’s put your mind at rest by explaining exactly how safe laser hair therapy is.

The treatment incorporates a non-surgical therapeutic laser. It is the most powerful type of laser that is safe to use in cosmetic procedures.

In America, the FDA has also stated that the laser light used in laser light hair treatments, such as those offered by North Mississippi Hair Loss Solutions, comply with the United States FDA CDRH safety regulations section 21 for cosmetic use United States as a certified class 11A cosmetic laser.

Therefore, you can rest assured that all relevant official bodies are confident laser light hair therapy is a safe and non-invasive procedure.

Laser Hair Therapy Only Works for Blonde Hair

You may have heard or read that laser hair therapy only works with lighter shades of hair. This myth is believed to have started due to a very old study which limited the shades of hair listed in the results as there wasn’t enough diversity in the group of hair loss patients being studied. Whether your hair is light or dark, if low-level laser therapy is indicated as a beneficial treatment by your physician, then it’s one worth exploring.

Laser Hair Therapy is a Miracle Cure for Hair Loss

While we wish that we held the cure for hair loss, this is another unfortunate myth that has been circulated for several years. Any hair restoration studio that makes the promise of guaranteeing hair regrowth should be avoided.

It’s true that laser hair treatments can provide fantastic results, but it doesn’t work for everyone, which is why it’s important to consult with an ethical, friendly, and professional hair loss expert before you spend money on the treatments.

You will not grow your hair back if you are completely bald, though there have been some companies and website that have told people otherwise. This only does a disservice to the laser hair therapy industry, as it distorts expectations, leading to negative reviews.

Laser hair therapy is not a cure-all for every person, but it is highly effective in treating thin, fine hair in both men and women. Our Laser Hair Loss Treatment Therapy has been highly effective in treating those with thinning hair.

An Evaluation By A Trained Hair Loss Professional Is Essential
