Affecting both men and women, telogen effluvium is debatably the second most common form of hair loss addressed by doctors, with the first being male pattern balding. Though the condition isn’t fully understood—not unlike many balding conditions—telogen effluvium is best defined by its scattered presentation and its eventual reversal. While some other forms of hair loss manifest in concentrated parts of the scalp, telogen effluvium appears as a diffuse thinning all over the scalp—though certain areas can lose more hair than others. The crown of the head, for instance, tends to lose slightly more hair than the sides or the back of the scalp. If there is good news, it’s that the hairline is usually not impacted, and having telogen effluvium will not cause total and permanent hair loss.

So how exactly does Low-Level Laser Therapy regrow hair?
Each hair on your head grows in a characteristic cycle with several phases. The hair follicle will first spend several years in the growth phase, during which the hair actively lengthens. Next comes the resting phase, where the hair stops growing for several months. After a few months at rest, the follicle sheds its hair, the cycle begins anew, and the follicle begins to grow new hair.
Red laser light energizes stem cells in the dermal papilla, deep within the hair follicle. As a result, the length of the follicle’s growth phase is increased, and it produces thicker healthier hair.
As a result of this increased activity, and a complex series of cellular and biochemical interactions, the hair follicle spends a greater amount of time in the growth phase of the hair cycle, thereby slowing or reversing miniaturization and the progression of thinning and balding. Blood flow is increased as well via these interactions, delivering much-needed nourishment to sustain the follicle.
