Laser Technology

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is based on the scientific principal of photo-biotherapy. Photo-biotherapy occurs when laser light is absorbed by cells, which causes stimulation of cell metabolism and improved blood flow.

It was in 1967, shortly after the first lasers were invented, that Endre Mester in Semmelweis University was doing experiments with lasers on skin cancer. He noticed that when applying lasers to the backs of shaven mice, the shaved hair grew back faster in those mice in the treated group versus the untreated group. Since then, numerous experiments have shown that a certain exact wavelength of laser light – 650 nm (nanometers) – is most effective in stimulating hair to regrow.

Unlike your typical lasers that are used in surgery that cut tissue, Low Level Lasers are referred to as “cold” lasers”, because they do not have the thermal component to cut burn or vaporize tissue. LLLT is based on the scientific principal of photo-biotherapy. Photo-biotherapy occurs when laser light is absorbed by cells, which causes stimulation of cell metabolism and improved blood flow. So, this laser is classified as a IIIA cosmetic laser, safe for human cosmetic use.

LLLT for hair loss treatment uses the well known principal of Photobiostimulation. Photobiostimulation is the biochemical, non-thermal effect that results from exposure of living tissue to various dosages of energy at varying wavelengths emitted from low level lasers. At HLCQ, we have the imported the latest technology in laser therapy to ensure that clients gain the maximum benefit over the shortest possible time. This not only produces results, but saves hundreds of dollars.
