Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is now a growing trend in Malaysia. Low Level Laser Therapy is a method that uses low-level laser to stimulate the hair follicles with minimal side effects but with very encouraging, positive hair growth results. This laser therapy exposes your scalp to 630-670mm wavelength per second to strengthen the villus hair roots before it gets weak and falls off. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an FDA-approved hair growth treatment for hair loss. It is very safe and highly effective in hair regrowth for men and women.

What Problems Does Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Treat?
The primary function of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is to effectively treat hair loss and baldness. In the past decade, most men and women would start experiencing hair loss in their mid-30s or early 40s. But nowadays, millennials as young as mid-20s suffer from hair loss as well as thinning hair. The common causes of thinning hair are due to genetics, lifestyle, poor diet, smoking, intake of alcohol, lack of sleep, stress, diseases, sicknesses and aging. You should look out for the early apparent signs of hair loss. The following are 3 major signs of hair loss:-
- a gradual thinning on the top of the head, an alarming sign that shows you are experiencing hair loss.
- your receding hairline is a sign of premature hair loss caused by male-pattern baldness.
- you have patchy bald spots here and there in non-uniform size and pattern.
At the first stage of your hair thinning problem, you should consult our doctors. At the second and third stage, you should get treated by our doctors immediately to stop your hair loss and avoid it from worsening further before it is too late. Our doctors will use low-level laser therapy to effectively treat your hair loss problems. Low-Level Laser Therapy will emit laser light into the targeted cells. This low-level laser therapy is absorbed into the cells triggering enhanced cellular activity by making aging cells more active. Hence, low level laser therapy treatment helps in increasing their effectiveness in hair follicle growth.
Benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
The scalp tissues are irradiated by the photons of low level laser therapy (LLLT). The photons are absorbed by weak cells to encourage hair growth. The following are the other benefits of low-level laser therapy (LLLT):-

The Procedure of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
The low level laser therapy will emit laser light into the targeted cells. This laser light gets absorbed by the stem cells in the hair follicles, triggering enhanced cellular activity by making aging cells more active. Thus this laser treatment that emits low power coherent monochromatic red light helps in increasing the effectiveness in hair follicle growth. This safe and effective low-level laser therapy treatment is frequently used to treat male and female hair loss. This is found to be most effective for treating male-patterned baldness. It has been proven that LLLT treatment has helped to slow down or even stop hair loss in 85% of our patients undergoing this treatment. About 55% of our patients also found some new hair has emerged. The result of the treatment can be seen as early as 2 months after the procedure.
But Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is not effective for those who have severe baldness for years. Hair growth laser can only work on active hair follicles but will have no effect on dead hair follicles. For maximum result, our doctors will recommend our patients to combine low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with other procedures such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment. For further enquiries, consult our specialists.
Precautions of Doing Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
The following precautions are for patients doing Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT):-
- Watch your diet
Avoid consuming too much sodium(salt) in your food. Replace sodium with high protein diet to increase keratin production in your head. Food such as eggs, spinach, fish and nuts can help you regrow your hair. Eating berries can stop hair thinning and promote hair growth.
- Keep yourself hydrated
The key to keeping a healthy set of hair is by drinking enough of water every day. As our hair comprises one quarter water, drinking enough water can prevent hair loss.
- Reduce alcohol intake and avoid smoking
Drinking alcohol and smoking will lead to hair loss. Smoking reduces the amount of blood circulation to your scalp and so your hair lacks the nutrients for it to grow.
- Low Level Laser Therapy is not for certain patients
Low Level Laser Therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, light-sensitive patients and patients with malignant tumors due to irradiation.
Side Effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
There are no known long-term or adverse side effects of low level laser therapy. Unfortunately low level laser therapy does not work for patients who have suffered severe baldness for years. Hair growth laser (LLLT) can only work on active hair follicles but has no effect on hair follicles that are already dead.
