The low-level laser therapy represents a light or heat treatment for hair loss. Usually, it is utilized for the treatment of genetic hair loss forms which are common in men and women (androgenetic alopecia or pattern balding). In this article, our hair transplant specialists in Turkey present you with a brief guide on the low-level laser therapy.
 

How does the low-level laser therapy in Turkey work?


The low-level laser therapy treatment used in hair transplant clinics in Istanbul functions based on a laser which produces light of a very precise wavelength and power.

The wavelength characteristics are the ones which make the laser unique. The laser light color and its wattage (power) are chosen for certain purposes.

The light of the laser utilized for the pattern hair loss treatment is a visible red light with a wavelength of 630-670 nanometers and a low power.

The low-level laser therapy used by Turkey hair transplant physicians has the ability to be absorbed in the hair follicle molecules.

The light enters the patient’s scalp and stimulates the epidermal stem cells which regenerate the hair follicles.

The increased blood flow which results after applying the low-laser therapy helps to raise the nutrient and oxygen delivery to the hair follicles.

Consequently, this type of therapy for hair loss stimulates the metabolic processes and helps to avoid the build-up of DHT (dihydrotestosterone, an endogenous androgen sex steroid and hormone) in the hair follicles.
 

Who can benefit from the low-level laser therapy in Istanbul?


The low-level laser therapy used in hair transplant clinics in Istanbul is suitable for both men and women who have thinning hair issues or experience pattern baldness because of hereditary conditions.

Hair loss specialists utilize a system which is named the Norwood-Hamilton Classification for men and the Ludwig-Savin Scale for women to establish the degree of hair loss.

The low-laser therapy is used for male patients who have Norwood-Hamilton Classifications of IIa to V and for female ones with Ludwig-Savin Classifications I-4, II-1, II-2, or frontal pattern hair loss, as well as Fitzpatrick skin prototypes I to IV.
