Starting to lose your hair but don’t think you are a candidate for a hair transplant? If you are looking to prevent future hair loss or just achieve more fullness, laser therapy is an excellent choice. Schedule at BHHR for a preventative consultation and learn about your options.
We currently offer the Lexington HairMax Laser Comb to both our male and female patients who are looking to prevent future hair loss. Laser light in the red spectrum and with the appropriate power output has been clinically proven to be beneficial for cutaneous medicine. In addition, the HairMax LaserComb has a patented hair parting mechanism. This combined with the precise alignment of the hair parting teeth to the individual direct beam lasers provides a true direct path for the laser light to effectively bathe the scalp. Learn more about how it works.
Energy is the power and ability to be physically and mentally active. Continuous energy supply is needed for the functioning of vital processes in living things inclusive of both plants and animals. The vital processes include metabolic activities, DNA and protein synthesis, transport of molecules and ions, exchange of minerals, breakdown of food to produce energy, removal of waste products from the body, exchange of gases in the body and so on which are symbolic of life in an organism. The biological molecule adenosine triphosphate, or the ATP, stimulates individual cell activity. ATP is responsible for the transport of energy in the cell. Laser light trapped in the mitochondria of the cell is transferred to produce ATP. ATP synthesis is similar to photosynthesis in plants.
Action of enzyme ATP synthetase on ATP releases the endmost phosphate group. It is an exothermic process and releases a large amount of energy, which is used by the organisms to carry out vital cell functions including protein synthesis. Enzyme acts as a catalyst and triggers the process process.
ATP and Laser Light Stimulation
Specific wavelengths of certain lasers are found to increase cell activity as a result of ATP production. Different wavelengths can stimulate the cell activity to different extent.
The HairMax LaserComb energizes the weakened follicles by a laser beam. The hair follicles are stimulated by the laser beam of optimum wavelength. This increases vascularization and cellular metabolism. With the increase in cell activity the circulation of blood is also promoted. Blood flow and circulation in the scalp is enhanced by laser energy. Increased blood flow promotes the growth of a healthy hair follicle.
Blood flow facilitates the access of important nutrients to the follicle and removal of harmful wastes such as DHT. Ample supply of nutrients boosts the hair follicle and the removal of waste makes them healthier. With increased cellular metabolism and cellular activity, a weakened follicle is transformed into a healthy one which in turn results in beautiful, bouncy hair. This invigoration of the hair follicle accounts for healthier hair, prevention of further hair loss and stimulation for the re-growth of hair. Hence, this mitigates the problems accounting to hair loss.
