Low Level Laser Therapy

Definition: Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as photobiomodulation (PBM), is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes low-energy lasers or LEDs to stimulate hair growth. These lasers deliver low levels of light to the scalp, believed to trigger cellular processes that promote hair follicle health and activity.


  • Non-invasive and painless procedure with minimal side effects.
  • May stimulate hair growth in some individuals experiencing thinning hair or androgenetic alopecia (common male and female pattern hair loss).
  • Convenient and can be performed at home with handheld devices or in-clinic with specialized equipment.


  • Research on LLLT’s effectiveness for hair loss is ongoing, and results might vary depending on individual factors.
  • May require regular treatments for several months to see noticeable results.
  • Not a permanent solution, and ongoing maintenance treatments might be needed.


  • Medications like minoxidil and finasteride for hair loss treatment.
  • Hair transplant procedures for more permanent hair restoration.

Recovery Time:
LLLT has no downtime and can be easily incorporated into a daily routine.

The effectiveness of LLLT for hair loss can vary. Consulting with a dermatologist or hair restoration specialist can help determine if it’s a suitable option and manage expectations for results.
