Question
Hi Dr.,

I really enjoyed your segment on Michael Finney's show on KGO, 7/2015.  Does the red light laser treatment grow hair permanently or do I have to keep treating myself to keep the hair?

Nikki Pralon


Answer
Hi Nik,

  It stimulates hairs to grow and does a good job at keeping them young as well. In that regard it works better than minoxidil but if you stop using it two or three times a week to maintain your hair growth then the natural aging process of thinning gradually will take place.
   There should be a link on my website www.hairdoc.com which can direct you to learning more about how Low Level Laser Light Treatment works to simulate hair in the 650 nm range.

I'm glad you enjoyed the segment. I had a text message sent to me by a friend saying
" I was fascinated by the interview and I have all my hair"  --- so I'm glad it was entertaining as well.
