A recent study shows that Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) improves hair regrowth and thickness in patients with androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The study was published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine.
The researchers at the university of Miami identified 11 studies (680 patients). Nine of the studies found significant improvements in hair count/hair density in both males and females after LLLT treatment. In two of four studies, hair thickness and tensile strength significantly improved. The five studies that assessed patient satisfaction showed overall positive results, although the results were not as profound as the objective outcomes. They concluded that LLLT therapy seems to be a promising monotherapy for AGA and may serve as an effective alternative for individuals unwilling to use medical therapy or undergo surgical options.
When combined with hair transplant using Smartgraft, LLLT may be used to sustain hair growth.
