FDA Approved Low Level Laser Hair Therapy Now at Transitions of Indiana
A study was done by John L. Satino and Michael Markou, D.O. to confirm the efficacy of low level laser therapy for stimulating hair regrowth and also determine what effect it had on tensile strength of the hair. 35 subjects were used, 28 males ages between 28 and 72 and 7 females between 46 and 76, which all had androgenetic alopecia (AGA). These subjects underwent a 6 month treatment period every other day for 5 minutes. The final results showed that the hair count in the temporal area averaged of 55.2% in women, 74.1% in men, and 69.1% for all patients. In the vertex area, 64.9% for women, 120.1% for men, and 111.9% for all patients. This gives a final result of 93.5% efficacy when all temporal and vertex subjects were combined. Similarly, hair tensile strength showed improvements as well. The temporal area increased 82.6% in women, 64.4% in men, and 69.3% in all patients. In the vertex area, 71.1% for women, 89.3% for men, and 86.4% in all patients. The hair tensile strength was increased by 78.9% when all temporal and vertex subjects were combined. This study confirms the hypothesis that low level laser therapy is an effective treatment for stimulating hair growth and increasing the tensile strength of hair in both sexes.
