Whenever causing hair loss on the head but a greater production of facial hair, testosterone also shrinks hair follicles.
Androgens, or male hormones, often increase as estrogen levels decrease.
Whenever causing the new hairs to grow ever thinner with every cycle of hair growth, an androgen known as dihydrotestosterone appears to bind to hair follicles and force them to go into their resting phases, or telogen, sooner than normal. Therefore this causes androgenic alopecia, another kind of hair loss. Hair loss during menopause is typically tied to hormone levels, though other factors can also be at play. I went for laser therapy for balding.
I wear a cap everywhere I go which is a special cap that is UV resistant so I’m not exposing my head to the sun.
Can anybody comment or has any one experienced identical thing. Accordingly the discoloration is the exact shape of the balding pattern and is really worrying me.
Its like a huge birth mark on my head.
Is this from the laser therapy.
Now let me ask you something. Even if it were sun exposure why is the shape exactly that of the balding pattern? Normally, I decided to stop the treatment and simply shaved my head bald. I tried it out for a year and a half and got no results. Also, I cant see any other explanation. Few years later I am now noticing a huge discoloration on my sculp where my hairloss occured. For example, I believe I know it’s a great therapy for those with a small quantity of loss. Seriously. Dr. Anyways, I was doing laser therapy for 2 months now.
I think those that have a more progressed problem may have difficulty seeing results from it.
I has helped me so far and I am confident that by 6 months my problem gonna be resolved.
I has thickened up my existing hair and patchiness in Undoubtedly it’s working for me! There’s a lot more info about this stuff on this website. Feller is there’re very few that have FDA clearance, while there’re lots of home use devices available on the web making all sorts of claims.
And so it’s that simple……DO NOT buy any home use device that does not have FDA clearance, period!
How do you know what actually is p laser to pick for treating a specific condition, particularly for home use?
While lots of us are aware that there are many devices advertised for hair growth, the HairMax LaserComb is the ONLY home use laser phototherapy device that has FDA clearance for marketing for the promotion of hair growth, as an example. Likewise, while So there’re many devices that claim efficacy for hair removal, only a couple of them have FDA clearance. Accordingly the answer is simple -you must ONLY consider any home use medical device that has specific FDA clearance for marketing. Know what, I can provide very simple explanation for why grocery store checkout clerks do not grow hair on their hands for a reason of scanning items with a laser, To be honest I am neither a doctor nor an engineer. Seriously. Rather than just dismissing everything, I’d like to see him express some knowledge of the scientific literature in his critiques.
I think all of this discussion great.
Alan Feller doesn’t come across well. I am Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services at Lexington International, LLC manufacturers of the HairMax LaserComb. You should take it into account. So this posting isn’t for commercial purposes but to provide further information about laser phototherapy for treating hair loss. Actually, more lasers in a device could actually be delivering because of excess energy delivery. So it’s not true as That’s a fact, it’s the TOTAL energy output that is important and NOT the amount of lasers it will take to deliver this energy, as mentioned above. Big buzz word in hair growth is the allegation that the more lasers a device has, the better it will work to grow hair. It’s crucial to know these facts about lasers and what they are used for as there is a lot conflicting information on the web about lasers and what they can do. With that said.
Baumen, and im sure his machine is Superior to any comb, or any other light product period.
For my fellow man, the waiters, that are my best frineds and cant afford 4k a yr for ‘in office’ light/laser therapy.
Just as the blueish acne lights in the dermatologists office are far superior to the home versions. Just got done listening to segment oh my god, ok I alomost fainted. Loads of info can be found by going online. GOOD LUCK TO YOU, To be honest I HOPE IT GIVES YOU BETTER RESULTS THAN IT DID ME. AT ABOUT TWO TO THREE MONTHS INTO THIS THERAPY I NOTICED SOME VERY, VERY MINISCULE HAIRS FORMING AT MY HAIRLINE BUT I WAS STILL LOSING HAIR LIKE CRAZY SO I CALLED THEM AGAIN AND ALSO CALLED MY DERMOTOLOGIST IN NYC. WELL, AFTER ‘4 5’ MOS.
HENCE, I’M IN WORSE SHAPE NOW THAN I HAD BEEN BEFORE ALL MY TIME, EFFORT, AND ADDED SHEDDING.
FROM THE VERY START MY HAIR SHEDDING INCREASED SO AFTER A FEW WEEKS I WAS BECOMING CONCERNED AND CALLED THE MANUFACTURER.
THEY SAID THAT THE NEW HAIRS WOULD SOON BEGIN TO APPEAR WHERE OTHERS HAD FALLEN OUT. YOU’LL KNOW WHEN AND IF TO GIVE IT UP. WHEN MY OVERT SHEDDING DID NOT ABATE, AND THE TINY LITTLE HAIRS WERE STILL BARELY VISIBLE, To be honest I SENT THE COMB BACK FOR A REFUND. THEY TOLD ME THAT THIS WAS A POSITIVE RESPONSE TO THE LASER COMB AND THAT NEW HAIRS WERE PUSHING THE OLD ONES OUT. I WISH I’D NEVER TRIED IT BECAUSE IT ONLY WORSENED MY SITUATION BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO CONTINUE WITH IT, BE CAREFUL TO USE IT AS RECOMENDED AND PERHAPS GIVE THE MANUFACTURER A CALL TO DISCUSS YOUR SITUATION AND YOUR DERMOTOLOGIST IF YOU GO TO ONE. Of course, hERBERT, To be honest I USED THE HAIR MAX LASER COMB FOR ABOUT FIVE MONTHS. Essentially, bOTH TOLD ME TO CONTINUE AND THAT THEY THOUGHT THE COMB WAS EFFECTING A CHANGE. Usually, be sure to do your research and assure that the company marketing the device you are considering has spent the resources to achieve FDA clearance for marketing the right to make claims for efficacy.
Only in that way can you be confident that they will do what they are designed to do and are a Undoubtedly it’s easy to eliminate a lot of those advertised for consideration for a while being that they DO NOT have FDA clearance SPECIFIC to their brand, while the various lasers on the market. There had been a bunch of publicity about lasers and their use in all areas of medicine, from surgical uses to uses for cosmetic indications just like hair growth, hair removal, wrinkle effacement and cellulite reduction. Recently, there are an ever increasing number of home use laser devices introduced that make all sorts of unproven claims.
So this review and clearance, the FDA requires and monitors strict manufacturing and quality control standards.
Using any other devices that do not have this clearance means you do not know how they are made and in so this oversight assures that the energy put out by these devices ALWAYS complies with the energy output for which they have been cleared for marketing. You should take this seriously. There’s no such thing as a FDA approved brand of laser! This is where it starts getting serious, right? For a while with the soles of the feet -are the few areas on the human body where there’re no hair follicles. You should take it into account. Whenever meaning that they do not grow past a certain length and they maintain a particular thickness, the hairs on the reverse side of the hands are what are called terminal hairs. As a result, stillman for the clarification of what the standards are for laser treatment for hair loss.
Thank you Mr.
I’ve been scouring the internet to understand as much as I can and your explanation is the clearest explanation I have found.
It’s particularly devastating for hair loss to occur in women and you have helped me consider some plan of action I could possibly to 60 minutes sometimes, usually 23″ times a week. If the dark blue light will kill dandruff, im also curious to know myself? I went online and found dark blue and redish LED lights meant for very similar acne treatments they do ‘in office’, and bought them for my home. Baumen or Feller, and plan on consulting both of them on hair transplants in the future. That is interesting. Heres what I have to say about my experience with the laser. Any swelling, or redness is going away. Well what does DHT do to the follicle? Of course the laser they are refering to is a fancy name for basic dark red light therapy. Furthermore, light red light basically targets swelling. Generally, I dont know neither Dr. I know for a fact, blueish light had been published in the as being proven to kill bacteria, harvard medical journals not speculative or therory. On p of this, why cant other wavelengths of light possibly So in case dark blue light had been medically prooven to effect skin.
Hairs on the head are NOT terminal hairs -meaning that they do have for awhile and thick, up until a certain point. When the hair on your head thins, rather the follicle becomes choked and clogged, it’s not that hairs become terminal hairs. Even if Dr. Anyway, I could see why doctors would not need ‘outside’ treatments to work. Normally, that’s all. I am not a regular listener or a doctor. As a result, there was not very much info here. It’s supposedly the new salon treatment available to hairstylists, salon owners. Felling was brutal I agree with where is the phenomenon? Two doctors with opposing views and callers talking about transplant problems. I am researching ‘laser light therapy’ on hair loss and tuned into the 3 segments on this show that were supposedly about that. I am a hairstylist in San Francisco North Bay area.
I’m sure that the action of these lasers is dependent on the TOTAL output of laser wavelength they emit and is NOT dependent on the actual number of lasers used to give this output.
For a laser to destroy or remove hair, they have to have a higher wavelength output in the visible light spectrum of around 800 nm.
Certainly, lasers used in surgery to remove lesions have to have an even higher wave length of as a matter of fact, if a laser is designed for hair growth, tal laser output has to be specific at 655 nm to be effective. Eventually, you can see that just a little higher wave length than that which is required to work for a specific condition, can actually cause another reaction as between hair growth and destruction.
Why is this FDA clearance so vital?
The reason is that this means that a 510 submission had been submitted to the FDA for the device and had been reviewed by that agency to assure that the device is safe.
As with the HairMax LaserComb, in any case efficacy is proven in well controlled clinical studies and these studies were pivotal in the clearance of the device by the FDA. However, I use my laser comb each day with the rogaine routine gether with finasteride. Seriously. Try using it at night, and use traditional rogaine in the morning, if the foam leaves your hair crusty and matted down. Essentially, trust me, if you follow this religiously I am quite sure you will at least stop the loss of additional hair, and, more than likely, regrow a considerable percentage of lost hair. Consequently, after about 3 months, you will see that your hairloss will taper off after about 2 3″ weeks, after that,, you will slowly begin to notice your hair filling in a bit.
I’d say if I use the old school rogaine in the morning, for ages being that from my personal experience, it’s greasy, I’m almost sure I can blow dry my hair until it’s completely dried.
I also use nizoral each and other day as well.
It’s easier to keep the hair you have. Essentially, you must combat hairloss from multiple angles if you truly hope to be successful. I’m going through this with you all and am making an attempt to share my experience and knowledge. Now pay attention please. Identical is true for me, To be honest I tried the lasercomb for about five months properly by the book but my hair loss has gotten worst. My suggestion is don’t spent money on treatments that don’t work instead accept it and hope for scientific break through to regrow hair in the future.
It seems from this post and others a bunch of the people who tried laser treatment have not seen any result and even gotten worst. I have rarely seen people who claim the laser treatment worked for them. Have heard that it’s just fluff, To be honest I also use Nioxin. I know it’s thinning, but I also use NISIM hair nic and I have not seen any further loss of hair, Actually I still have hair. IS THERE ANY PROVEN RESULTS WITH USING Nizoral in reducing or eliminating hair loss. It’s necessary to spend at least 15 minutes a day under it for 3 months straight. After that. That said, laser therapy works. Some info can be found easily online. The issue is this… those who administer it don’t give you enough time under the laser.
