How effective is low level laser light therapy?
Over the past several years, studies have confirmed the efficacy of LLLT, especially as provided with a multi-diode hood device (such as the Revage system). Anecdotally as well, we have a number of patients, both men and women, who have reported very positive outcomes from the LLLT, including thickening of existing hair and decrease of hair loss. For this reason, we do recommend LLLT as a stand-alone treatment for most women and some men with diffuse pattern thinning, as well as adjunctive with a transplant procedure to help accelerate healing and the regrowth of transplanted hairs
