Perhaps you are wondering if using a laser comb is safe. The newest, quality 17diode laser comb follows all FDA guidelines for a low level laser device, and since no heat is created, there is no chance of burns or skin damage. As with any appliance, users are cautioned to not stare at the laser light, and to use the comb only as directed. Hopefully this has answered some of your questions about this relatively new use for low level light lasers. As we age and seek new ways to keep out youthful looks and vitality, this is only one of many methods to safely and inexpensively achieve that goal
A laser hair comb is a laser device designed to be used by the general public in the comforts of their own home. Due to stress, illness, medication, and/or age we can all relate to hair that was once fast growing and lush that has turned thin and lifeless. Now recent FDA guidelines allow the laser hair comb to be used to rejuvenate this lifeless, thinning hair to its former state. You must be wondering whether the claims of manufacturers and dealers are true or just another gimmick. Well, the effectiveness of this laser device has long been established and used in clinics and by dermatologists in Europe and Canada for many years, and now the FDA allows its use in the United States.
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.
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. Exposure to toxic chemicals (including tobacco smoke), radiation exposure, iron deficiency, hormonal changes (pregnancy), thyroid disease and stress including crash diets can be factors. It is important to note that many of these conditions change and hair follicles that are not totally "dead" for more that seven years can re-grow hair.
