Hair loss is an extremely common problem. According to the American Hair Loss Association, by the age of 50, as many as 85% of men and 40% of women will experience thinning hair. Unsurprisingly, the effect that this can have on one’s confidence and self-esteem can be considerable. Many people who suffer from hair loss find themselves avoiding social situations due to the way that they feel about their hair.
The exact cause of hair loss can vary between patients, and there are some factors that are more likely to make someone suffer from thinning hair or hair loss in the future. Some of the most common contributors include:
A family history of hair loss (male or female pattern baldness)
Taking certain medications
Radiation therapy or chemotherapy
There are many different products and treatments that claim to be able to regenerate hair and provide relief from hair loss. However, the results of these solutions are often mediocre and short-term. Fortunately, there is another option – the Sunetics Laser.
The Sunetics laser is an FDA-approved, cutting edge laser technology treatment that is designed to reverse hair loss and help patients to enjoy naturally-regenerated hair growth.
How Does The Sunetics Laser work?
The Sunetics laser uses Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). This type of laser treatment uses the application of red and near infra-red light in order to produce a therapeutic effect. In the case of the Sunetics laser, this effect is to stimulate the hair follicles, gently healing them and helping them to produce new, normal-sized hair.
Specific effects that the laser is capable of:
Increasing the production of cellular energy (ATP) to energize and repair the weakened follicle
Improve blood circulation to the follicle
Increase the amount of nutrients being absorbed by the follicle, improving the health of the hair
Decreasing follicular inflammation
Removal of harmful DHT which is believed to be linked to hair loss
By boosting cellular activity and removing DHT from your body, the Sunetics laser will enable the hair follicles to heal and again become capable of producing healthy, normal, strong hair.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Every patient is different and will find that the Sunetics Laser treatment program is tailored to their individual needs. Typically, patients can expect to require treatment in accordance with the following timeline:
Sessions twice a week for up to 3 months
Following this, sessions once a week for another 3 months
Any additional ‘top-up’ sessions as recommended
Each Sunetics Laser session lasts approximately 20 minutes, with a little extra time needing to for preparation. This means that the treatment can be performed during your lunch break if needed.
Will the Sunetics Laser hurt?
Many people are understandably concerned about whether laser treatments such as Sunetics are painful to experience. The laser used in Sunetics is known as a ‘cold’ laser. This means that it targets under the skin, rather than being ablative and harming the skin itself. Non-ablative lasers such as those used in Sunetics do not heat or damage the skin in any way, meaning that there is no pain experienced. The entire treatment can be performed comfortably without the need for anesthesia.
Patients also love the Sunetics Laser because there are absolutely no side effects associated with the treatment. After your treatment, you will be able to go about your day as normal with no worries about suffering any ill-effects from the laser.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Again, precisely how quickly a patient’s hair responds to the Sunetics Laser treatment can vary. Some people will see a noticeable difference in the thickness and growth of their hair in just 8-12 weeks into their treatment plan. Others may not notice a significant improvement in their hair quality for up to 10 months. However, the average response is a marked improvement in visible hair quality and growth around 6 months after beginning treatment.
