Causes Of Hair Loss
Hair loss, also known as alopecia, may be due to different causes. We can distinguish three main causes of hair loss:
Hereditary hair loss / androgenetic alopecia
Is hair loss in most cases there is a genetic or hormonal form of hair loss. This is often referred to as age-related hair loss, although it can also occur in the early years. Also called androgenetic alopecia, hereditary hair loss in 99 percent of cases the cause of hair loss. Up to 70 percent of men suffer from this form of hair loss that often begins at an early age. For those who are affected by it, draws back the hairline. As a result, the formation of so-called receding hairline. In the course can also thin out the hair on the back of the head, also called the tonsure, and only just a fringe of hair remains. Some victims are also particularly in the area a center parting of hair thinning. However, not only men can suffer from this type of hair loss. Even 30 percent of all women are affected. For them, the thin hair from middle-aged then often at the top.
The genetic form of hair loss is due to an above-average production of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This degradation product of the male sex hormone testosterone prevented the healthy growth of your hair. The growth zones of your hair to show an extremely sensitive reaction. At the beginning of hereditary hair loss, the blood and energy supply is restricted in the hair roots. With advancing time the production of new hair cells is then stopped altogether.
Respond that hair roots to the DHT-sensitive, genetically determined. This is also the reason why, for example, the inherited predisposition to baldness often from father to son. However, if you start early with a treatment of hair loss can be slow or even stop altogether.
But even new hair growth is possible! For as long as your hair follicles are not dead by the DHT, are they still reproduced hair. However, their growth phase is considerably shortened and severely hampered by the lack of supply. This has the consequence that the hairs do not grow through the scalp, atrophy and therefore not visible to you.
With the gentle low-level laser therapy, you have the opportunity to bring your hair back and in this way to ensure that they can develop and grow healthy.
Diffuse hair loss
When hair all over my head and turn out thin out evenly, it is called diffuse hair loss. The hairs are generally not sufficiently supplied with necessary nutrients for the hair structure. Women suffer more than men in this form of hair loss. Among others, thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalances, infections, stress, iron deficiency or a nutrient-poor diet causes of diffuse hair loss.
The circular hair loss, also known as alopecia areata, is another form of hair loss. It counts in men to the second most common causes of hair loss and is responsible for ensuring that suddenly bleak, forming coin-sized offices. In extreme cases the hair even fail completely. The cause is still largely unclear, however. Drug treatment is successful only in rare cases. It is believed that the alopecia areata, the body's immune system attacks its own hair follicles depends.

Why Laser Therapy Works
Why Laser Therapy Works
Hair follicle weakening can occur in the scalp’s vascular network when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT disrupts the binding of essential proteins and nutrients to cells in the follicle. In time, this lack of nutrients leads to a weakening of the hair in the follicular site.
Regeneration of new and healthier cells in the scalp can increase hair quality, hair thickness and hair regrowth. Bio-stimulation using lasers at 650nm wavelengths are reported to increase nutrient transport and cellular ATP production of cells in the inter-membrane space of the scalp. Furthermore, increased ATP synthesis dramatically increases the mobilization of calcium ion (Ca2+) stores and cell signaling cascades that lead to increased protein production, intracellular nutrient acquisition and cell proliferation. This process ultimately leads to a decrease in DHT-dependent disruption of follicular protein and nutrient loss and to the maintenance of healthy scalp hair.
COMMONLY TREATED HAIR CONDITIONS
- Alopecia areata
- Androgenic alopecia
- Alopecia due to stress
- Generally unhealthy appearing hair
- Post-partum hair thinning Telogen effluvium
Mechanisms of Action
Improvement of blood microcirculation
Increase nutrient acquisition by follicular site
Initiation of protein synthesis
Increase in ATP production
Increase in cellular stimulation
Increase mobilization of calcium ions
Effectiveness of the save hair therapy for hair loss is demonstrated by studies
It can be accompanied by numerous medical studies cited that prove the effectiveness of our low-level laser therapy for hair loss. These include studies that made the producers of our laser devices to perform themselves.
"Increase in hair counts by 93.5 percent,"
An independent study that was published in "International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology" (Volume 5, Number 2, 2003) could show that the number of hairs in a test group of 35 men and women with low- level laser therapy has been treated has risen on average by 93.5 percent. Moreover, also the tensile strength of the hair has increased by 78.9 percent.
"Increasing the scalp blood flow by 54 percent"
Professor Pekka J. Pontinen, one of the first users of low-level laser treatment in Scandinavia will have noticed that laser energy has positive effects on blood circulation to the scalp. In his study, which was published in 1996, he has measured the effect of hair lasers on the circulation of the scalp with three different devices: he used a He-Ne laser (632.8 nm) transfer, in which the laser light through fibers and lenses is a hair care laser (670 nm) and a further hair care laser in which the laser unit has been previously removed, as placebo. It was found that the functional hair care laser, a low-level laser, resulted in an increase of the scalp blood flow by 54 percent. In contrast, the He-Ne laser has no effect. Moreover, it was, even a reduction of the scalp blood flow be detected by 36 percent in the treatment, which was carried out with the placebo laser.
"Laser radiation has a significant increase in hair growth result"
2009 had been the results of a study by Dr. Michael R. Hamblin, one of the leading experts in the field of low-level laser treatment and a professor at Harvard University, on behalf of the Laboratory of Bio-EC, Paris, performed, published . In this study, he examined the nutrient solution in an ex vivo growth of hair follicles, which were exposed to irradiation with a low-level laser. In contrast to the control group could be detected in the hair follicles, which were subjected to treatment with the laser, the laser treatment resulted in a statistically significant increase in hair growth.
Studies by the manufacturer of laser equipment commissioned
"Increase in hair density by 20 percent after three months"
Also Sunetics, the U.S. manufacturer of laser devices, which also uses save hair, gave a few years ago his own studies.
Through the year 2007 by Dr. YG Crassas Lyon conducted study showed that increased after three months of treatment with low-level laser Sunetics of the hair thickness and hair density in subjects by 20 percent.
"78 percent of the subjects coming from her hair thicker"
Already in 2005 sponsored a study that was conducted by leeveresearch than 375 users of low-level laser treatment, the following results to light:
- 78 percent comes from her hair thicker
- 76 percent comes from her hair fuller
- 64 percent comes from her shiny hair
- 85 percent believe that their hair looks nice
- 84 percent are satisfied with the treatment
"Better and healthier looking hair"
Another study from 2005, which was conducted by the Bauman Medical Group found that nearly 77 percent of the 254 respondents reported that their hair better after treatment with low-level laser of Sunetics looks. Also reported having more than 71 percent, that your hair feel healthier since then.
How does the laser work?
The iMatrix Pro-series laser uses 120 laser diodes at 650nm wavelength stimulate hair improvement effects. Laser bio-stimulation energy is delivered to the scalp which in turn opens up the vascular network within the scalp by using a cell signalling process. The laser energy delivered to the scalp increases microcirculation by mobilizing calcium stores, The increased ATP (Adenosine-5'-triphosphate) production cascades into increased protein and nutrient production which is delivered up to the hair follicle site.
Does it hurt? Is it safe?
The iMatrix Pro-series laser is completely pain-free and completely safe to use. Some people report a mild tingling or warming sensation which typically goes away within 20 min of completing the treatment. The illumiwave laser stimulates cell function. The effect is non-thermal in contrast to surgical or hair removal lasers. The laser’s low level energy does not alter molecular structures, but STIMULATES the body's mechanisms to REPAIR AND HEAL itself. This laser can also be used for wound healing and that is why there are no reported side affects.
- Women who are pregnant
- Active herpes infection (cold sores) in the area to be treated
- Skin infections such as impetigo at the site to be treated
- Extreme sensitivity to light
- Active skin cancer
- Glaucoma, cataracts or retinal detachment * always consult with your doctor prior to treatment.
When do patients start to see results?
Most patients will see full stabilization of hair loss within 3 months and hair regrowth can be seen as early as 6 months. Can patients use anything else in combination to increase results? Yes. Patients can be on oral or topical medications, as well as using certain shampoos/ conditioners meant for Hair loss/thinning.
Who is a good candidate?
As long as there are living follicles in the area to be treated the laser can be effective in stabilizing and rejuvenating the hair. This laser can work on male or female, and any race or skin color. If the follicles are completely dead and the patient is completely bald then unfortunately this laser is not the right treatment for them.
During the reactivation phase, all areas of your scalp that are affected by hair loss, treated within a period of about three to four months with the help of a low-level laser (low energy laser). The aim of this phase is to reactivate through intensive treatment of your scalp, the damaged hair cells. To achieve this goal, at least 26 therapy sessions are planned with a treatment duration of 20 minutes.
The construction phase consists of several sessions with a duration of 30 minutes each, which are tailored to your individually designed treatment plan for you. In addition, hair analysis can be carried out more frequently in the construction phase. So we can adjust your treatment plan at any time. The aim of this phase is to build beautiful and full of hair and maintain it.
