It’s natural to lose a small amount of hair every day. However, as we get older hair loss can become a more significant problem. Studies by the American Hair Loss Association show 85% of men and 40% of women will start to experience thinning hair by the age of 50. Exactly why some people experience hair loss and others still enjoy a full head of thick hair into their senior years isn’t always known. Nevertheless, there are some things that are more likely to put you at risk of hair loss. These include:
Having a family history of hair loss (either your parents or grandparents)
Taking certain medications
Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer
Prolonged or extreme stress
While some people can adapt to hair loss fairly well, for others, their changing appearance causes them a significant degree of distress.
There is a long list of treatments that claim to be able to counteract hair loss and regenerate the hair that is already missing. These range from supplements to shampoos. However, most of these produce very temporary and mediocre results – if they work at all. The good news is Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center offers a treatment that is FDA approved and very successful. This treatment is called Sunetics.
What Is The Sunetics Hair Regrowth Laser And How Does It Work?
The Sunetics hair regrowth Laser is a low-level laser therapy, also known as an LLLT treatment. It is called low level laser since it uses red and near infrared light to produce the therapeutic effects that cause hair regeneration. When targeted at hair follicles, the red light stimulates and heals them, which in turn enables them to start regenerating the patient’s hair. It does this by:
Improving blood circulation so that more healthy blood can reach the hair follicles.
Reducing inflammation of the hair follicles.
Increasing the amount of nutrients being absorbed by the follicle, which helps to improve the strength and health of the hair.
Increasing the production of cellular energy (ATP) in order to repair the weakened follicle.
Patients are usually referred for multiple sessions of The Sunetics hair regrowth laser, although precisely how many you need will vary depending on how much hair you have lost and how well your body responds to the treatment. In most instances, however, patients are recommended to attend sessions at least twice each week for three months, after which time the frequency may be reduced. Each session is painless and lasts around 30 minutes. There’s no downtime to worry about, and patients can go back to their usual activities immediately following treatment.
How Long Does It Take To See Results From Sunetics Treatment?
Every patient is unique and responds to The Sunetics laser hair regrowth treatment at a different rate. This means that how long it will take to see a significant difference in your hair will vary. Some patients may notice their hair becoming thicker within eight weeks of treatment, while others may obtain noticeable improvements weeks later. The average time it takes to see a reasonable improvement in growth and hair quality is approximately six months.
