Laser hair combs work on the principle of phototherapy or light therapy. The correct laser frequency is concentrated on the scalp to increase blood circulation resulting in hair growth. The process, similar to photosynthesis in plants, is known as photobiostimulation. In a laser hair comb, lasers emit red (or cool) light waves which pass through the soft tissues of the scalp and about 5 to 6mm into the hair follicles. This light results in the increased molecular action of adenosine triphosphate(ATP) which stores and transports energy. This action increases cellular metabolism by stimulating the cells intake of nutrients and the removing waste products. In this process damaged tissues get replaced and repaired quickly resulting in increased hair growth and hair restoration.
Cholesterol lowering drugs, Parkinson medications, ulcer drugs, anti-coagulants, anti-arthritics, anti-convulsants, antidepressants, beta blockers, anti-thyroid agents and male hormones may cause hair loss (reversible alopecia). In addition this list includes acne, diet and anti-fungal medications. Your doctor can look up your medications in his Physicians Desk Reference to see if the drug is linked to reversible alopecia, and may be able to substitute another medication. Your pharmacist is also a knowledgeable person to ask. There are other temporary or longer term issues that may inhibit the ability of the laser hair comb to increase hair growth. Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis and Schleroderma along with the autoimmune disease alopecia totalis or universalis cause balding.
Laser hair combs are an effective hair loss solution. They are user-friendly, do not emit heat in any form and have no side-effects. They are safe to use as they save you from being exposed to harsh chemicals used in many hair treatments, and expensive surgeries. The effectiveness of laser hair combs can be further increased by a combination of treatments such as, minoxidil and DHT blocking supplements like procerin, but it is advisable seek the advice of a medical practitioner before taking any of these medications. You should also consult your physician if you have any open sores or are taking any medications as these may be actually causing your hair loss, and a change in medications or healing of a skin disease may solve the problem.
We normally lose up to 100 hairs per day, but there are that many new hairs being generated in the follicles each day on a healthy head. At any one time 90% of the follicles are producing hair in a growth (anagen) cycle, but each follicle has its own time clock that can be influenced by age, disease, medicines and other factors. This timed life cycle has three stages. The anagen phase is active growth and lasts between two to six years. The catagen or transitional phase lasts from two to three weeks. The telogen or resting phase lasts two to three months, and at the end of this phase the hair is shed and new hair replaces it, starting the cycle all over again.
