How does light therapy work?

Light therapy uses “cold” lasers that target the follicles beneath your scalp and trigger natural regeneration, restoring a thicker, healthier head of hair. Unlike other laser treatments, light therapy does not involve any heat or vibration, and it causes no damage to your skin or the cells on your scalp. Instead, the light energy is absorbed by the follicles to stimulate cellular metabolism, blood flow, and the regeneration processes. When done several times a week, this treatment can provide significant improvements in hair growth and thickness.

The benefits of light therapy

Light therapy is an effective treatment on its own and can be used in combination with other treatments to maximize results and effectiveness. Some of the many benefits of light therapy include:

  • Painless, quick, and non-invasive
  • Zero downtime
  • Effective at fighting genetic hair loss (androgenic alopecia)
  • Can be done in-office or at home
  • Enhances the results from other hair loss treatments
  • Can stop the progression of genetic hair loss
  • Helps newly transplanted follicles activate faster
  • Improves scalp health

Am I a candidate for light therapy in Austin, Texas?

Light therapy is an effective solution for men and women experiencing thinning hair or mild to moderate hair loss. While it will not restore hair follicles that have been inactive for an extended period, it can be a highly workable treatment to keep the hair healthy. The procedure itself is entirely safe for virtually any skin type and hair color, making it available to anyone who wants to ward off hair loss.

What to expect with light therapy

Light therapy has the benefit of being both an in-office and at-home treatment. When you arrive, we will begin with a thorough, in-person consultation to determine whether light therapy will be an effective solution to achieve your goals. We will perform your initial session in our office under the care of one of our talented hair restoration professionals.

A single session usually lasts anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes and is entirely painless with no side effects. You will then have the option of returning to our clinic several times per week for in-office light therapy or going home with a state-of-the-art device that you can use at home, on your own time.

Light therapy: Your results

Results are usually seen within the first few months of continuous at-home treatment, and you are free to continue light therapy to continue to maintain a healthy, full head of hair. Many patients report as much as a 40 percent increase in hair growth, with some reporting even greater benefits over several months.

Why choose us?

At Face Austin, you will be under the care of Dr. Marcelo Antunes – a double board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon who is a leader in the field of hair restoration.

He can help evaluate which treatments will be the most effective for your unique condition.

Our entire clinic is operated on the principle that there are no shortcuts to quality, and we take the time to help our patients achieve the results they envision with comfort and personalized care.
