The relationship between lasers and hair growth was Folexin Review first discovered almost 40 years ago. During the 1960's and 1970's, researchers used low level lasers to evaluate their potential bio-stimulating effects on living tissues. In a surprise finding, during experiments on patients with leg ulcers, doctors observed that the hair follicles which surrounded the area being treated by the low level laser grew new hair.Laser light appears to stimulate microcirculation, decrease inflammation and improve both cellular metabolism and protein synthesis. Furthermore, European studies suggest that LLLT increases blood and lymph circulation at the hair roots and stimulates follicular cells, which may cause hair to grow thicker and stronger.In January of 2007 a hand-held laser therapy device, called the HairMax LaserComb, was cleared by the FDA as a treatment for 'androgenetic alopecia' (male pattern hair loss). The way the laser comb works is quite simple. The visible red light from the comb's lasers travel several layers into the tissue without harming the skin and scalp. Because the laser light does not cut or burn the skin, the therapeutic light-energy is absorbed by the cells and the process of cell repair begins. One theory of how this noninvasive, non-chemical hair loss treatment works is that it stimulates the production of energy at the cellular level; therefore, improving cell function.
