When it comes to hair loss treatment, low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, has been shown to be an effective and safe method to stimulate not only hair follicles, but also the scalp to increase blood flow. Increased circulation nourishes the follicles even more, in turn. Laser therapy can also be used together with hair-loss treatment drugs like Rogaine and Propecia.
More than 50 million men in the U.S. are affected by hair loss, but a common misconception is that only much older men have to deal with it. The truth is that there is no specific age when hair might start to thin out. Some men start to notice their hair thinning when they’re in their 20s, and some even in their teens. For most men, hair loss can start to be an issue around age 35.
Male pattern baldness is responsible for 95% of hair loss experienced by men, according to the American Association for Hair Loss. Hair starts to recede from around the crown and temples of a man’s head. If you’re noticing more hair in the drain when you shower, or on tabletops, desks, or other surfaces even when you’re not touching your head or engaging in physical activity, it’s time to consider laser hair restoration.
At any age, thinning hair may lead to problems with self-confidence. Especially if it’s getting more and more apparent. If you’re starting to feel embarrassed by what’s happening, this is another occasion when you should look into laser therapy.
Be proactive. Pay attention to the signs and begin a hair loss treatment program as soon as you notice more of your hair falling out.
