FAQ - How To Choose The Right Laser Phototherapy Hair Comb

Feb 28, 2008
There are laser combs out there such as the Androhair which is a new laser comb system that is an ideal solution to female hair loss. Most women hair loss can usually be attributed to telogen effluvium, which means there is a diffuse (or widely spread out) shedding of the hairs and around th scalp.
It is usually associated to intense stress on the body's physical or hormonal systems or as a reaction to medication.

The condition can strike a woman at any age and can begin without any warning and will usually clear itself up after around six months.

If you have a hair loss problem please consult your doctor who can prescribe treatment or course of action.

The less common forms of women's hair loss is androgenetic alopecia that at anytime effects 13% of the female western population. It is often associated with the on set of the female menopause.

The hair loss of this condition is due to a chemical called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which is made from androgens (male hormones that all women produce) by the action of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase.

This causes the tinning of the women's hair all over the scalp but will predominately be over the sides and top of the head. It will lead to the scalp becoming visible through the hair and make a woman appear older than her chronological age.

Androgenetic alopecia unfortunately doesn't naturally cure itself and requires some form f treatment to counteract it effects.

There are drastic and expensive forms of treatment such as hair transplant surgery where tiny punch-holes of skin containing a few follicles of hair are taken from elsewhere in the body (such as the back of the head, if this is still well covered) and implanted into the thinning areas.

Then there is scalp reduction where devices are inserted under the skin to stretch areas of scalp that still have hair, then the redundant bald areas are removed. Alternatively, flaps of hairy scalp can be moved around the head.

A woman can also try cosmetic alternatives such as make-up and wigs.

There are then certain treatments that can be used and one is laser phototherapy. Laser phototherapy uses a laser diode operating in the red portion of the visible colour spectrum. Laser energy is also collimated which means it is a tight beam of light energy that spreads or diverges only a little at great distances while a light bulb loses its brightness very quickly with distance.

Studies using specific wavelengths of certain lasers show increased activity in cell and bacterial cultures, probably the result of ATP production. In simpler terms the laser phototherapy stimulates the weakened follicles and combined with increased vascularization leads to greater cellular metabolism. In other words it increases the blood flow to the scalp thus leading to healthy hair follicles allowing thicker hair growth.

Laser phototherapy (the patented Androhair system) has also shown to take away the harmful DHT chemical that causes the hair loss in the first place. It two part process allows the scalp to naturally recover and promote healthier and thicker growth. Laser photo therapy invigorates the scalp and can provide an answer to the female hair loss question.
