Expectation for Laser Therapy Results

As you probably know, one of the treatments for hair loss that actually works is low-level laser therapy or LLLT. This kind of treatment for hair loss is approved by the FDA, it’s painless, and it’s noninvasive.

People often wonder what to expect for laser therapy results, and what kind of a timeline they can look forward to.

So, here’s what to expect.

First three months of treatment: Don’t expect much. You may not feel anything at all or you may notice some more shedding, which is totally normal, as some hairs will be moving into the growth phase and pushing out the hairs that are ready to fall. Remember, each follicle has several hairs coming from it, and they may be in different phases of growth. Some people experience some itching, but not everyone does.

Months three to six: Some people may not notice much or you may just notice a decrease in shedding. Hair loss will slow down as follicles start to get ready to regrow hair. It’s a long process, so don’t get discouraged. Our caps are designed for comfort, and sticking to the schedule or patient compliance is very important. You’re playing the long game here.

Months six to twelve: Now you will start to see new hair growth. Your hair will become noticeably fuller, and your patience will be rewarded. Keep to the prescribed schedule because you want to maintain your gains.

Twenty-four months: You will see a significant change in hair growth and thickness. The changes will have been slow and subtle over a long period, so you might want to look at some before and after photos. You will have to continue with your schedule to keep all your new hair looking thick. The caps aren’t a cure for hair loss, they are a treatment. Compliance is as important now as it was in the beginning.

Now you know what to expect. The results take time, but they are real. Let us help you get your hair back.
