If you or someone you care about suffer from hair loss, you’ve probably looked into all sorts of potential causes and remedies. In fact, if you’ve searched enough, you may have come across laser hair therapies. However, you may not know how they work, if they work, or how long they’ve been around. Keep reading for a brief but informative history of laser hair treatments, so that you may take a more informed course of action.

History of Laser Hair Treatments

The history of laser hair treatments began over 60 years ago. Lasers were discovered in the 1960s. As you can imagine, people got all sorts of ideas. Scientists from around the world immediately went to work on experimenting with such unprecedented technology. Everyone was excited to find all the potential applications of this exciting new phenomenon that, until then, had existed only in science fiction.

The ruby laser was invented in 1960. The helium-neon laser soon followed in 1961. Later, laser hair removal was accidentally invented in 1963. A few years later, people found out that lasers could be used for the opposite effect of hair growth.

Scientists found that lasers could be used for more than the destruction that springs to mind. Lasers could actually be used to heal the human body. The first experimental wave of laser therapy proved to help with inflammation and swelling. Additionally, lasers helped decrease pain, and even heal wounds faster. This evolved into what we use today, known as low-level light therapy or LLLT.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

LLLT, referred to in some circles as photobiomodulation, harnesses light from the red and infrared spectrums and directs it in a completely safe and painless way when operated by, or used as directed by, an experienced professional. So when did we start using LLLT for hair growth?

In 1967, a Hungarian physician named Endre Mester discovered that LLLT could be a safe and effective treatment for hair loss. He was experimenting on shaved mice when he observed that the laser light caused the hair on the mice to grow back at a much faster rate than otherwise. Mester found that regular laser treatments could stimulate hair to grow in places it had otherwise stopped. Thus begins the history of laser hair treatments.

Laser Hair Treatments Today

These days, the lasers used in hair treatment are light-emitting diodes (or LEDs). LEDs were introduced in 1962, but have come a long way since then, and are now more cost-efficient and available in the red and infrared light spectrums used in LLLT. These diodes are used in such state-of-the-art hair therapy tech as the Capillus 312 laser cap.

Laser hair therapy caps were first cleared for public use by the FDA in 2007 for men and 2011 for women. This opened the door for innovation and competition, and today we have a selection of the best hair growth laser treatments the market has to offer. That is the essential history of laser hair treatments. Since then, laser hair treatments have helped many people who struggled with hair loss, and they can help you, too.

Low-level laser light heals hair follicles by increasing oxygen absorption and stimulating the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate – the natural and necessary energy source our bodies create from oxygen). Our entire bodies run on ATP, so this is just good for us in general. This helps increase our nutrient intake and blood circulation – and that goes for our hair follicles as well. LLLT can also help remove DHT (Dihydrotestosterone – a natural byproduct of testosterone that can be responsible for hair loss in men).
