Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL) in males and Female pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) in females are the most common types of alopecia. To treat this alopecia and perhaps reverse the effect, the laser hair therapy serves as one of the best alternatives.

The science behind the theory of Laser therapy for growing hair is very simple. It includes the fact that lasers irradiate photons into tissues of the scalp. The weak cells of the scalp tissues absorb them. This assimilation stimulates micro-circulation of blood in the hair follicles. The cellular activities are increased by ensuring that the distribution of blood and nutrients is abundant to the hair follicles and thus the growth of hair is encouraged thereby diminishing the minifying further hair loss. The low light laser therapy to be specific has bio-stimulatory effects on tissues. It RESUMES their anagen (growth) phase, stimulates their re-entry to anagen from telogen (resting) phase and inhibits their early transition to catagen (regression) phase.
