Hair Loss Concealers

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low-level laser therapy, sometimes called low-level light therapy or LLLT, is one of the newer procedures being used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, or male and female pattern baldness. LLLT works by directing low-level laser light energy to the scalp tissue, in order to boost the blood supply, and stimulate hair growth cells beneath the scalp.
