MIAMI - Feb. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- A new study has shown that low level laser therapy (LLLT) devices are effective in helping men and women treat hair loss. In an evaluation of 146 men and 188 women, researchers found those using a popular LLLT hair comb experienced new hair growth after just 26 weeks of treatment.

In a new article published on the Miami Hair Blog, Miami hair transplant surgeons share the news that LLLT finally has solid research backing its claim to improve hair growth. Until recently, no study produced hard evidence that LLLT devices could help men and women reverse the signs of hair loss, as promised.

Now, however, a new study has shown that both men and women may experience new hair growth after several months of treatment. Researchers report that both male and female subjects saw an average of about 21 new hairs grown per square centimeter of scalp, significantly camouflaging the appearance of thin or bald areas.

The study is exciting news for several million men and women who suffer with thinning, shedding, or balding. Hair loss is known to cause emotional side effects, like compromised self image and confidence. It affects men and women at home as well as at the office, potentially derailing careers and interpersonal relationships.

As a non-surgical method of hair loss treatment, LLLT devices are particularly appealing for their relative low-cost and safety. Most LLLT devices—combs, in-office domes, and laser hats—are FDA approved, though patients should always verify on a product-by-product basis. LLLT devices are also popular among women because some prescription hair loss treatments, like Propecia®, are for only men. Others require continual foam application to the scalp, which some women find bothersome with long hair.

The Hair Transplant Institute of Miami is located in the Offices of Merrick Park in Coral Gables, Florida. Lead by Dr. Paul Rose and Dr. Bernard Nusbaum, the Institute stands committed to providing only the most advanced and effective methods of hair loss evaluation and treatment. Surgical hair restoration treatments are available in addition to LLLT combs and hats, ensuring that Miami residents can confidently pursue a treatment designed exclusively for their hair loss.
