A.L - male age 35 Treated for hair loss and balding.
“For many years I wasted a large amount of money on buying every over the counter product there was for hair loss. I even went to the dermatologist who knew of no help for hereditary hair loss.
I was astounded on Saturday after seeing the improvements in my hair growth after 14 or my 28 sessions. Hardly anyone had faith that the laser would work, and now these pcs prove them all wrong. My experience at The Laser Loft has always been pleasant. The atmosphere is always warm and I am always welcomed with a smile and I love the coffee.”

IT'S NOT ALL IN YOUR HEAD
Most people shed 50 -100 hairs a day. But with about 100,000 hairs in the scalp, this amount of loss shouldn't cause noticeable thinning.
While there are numerous causes, there are 2 main types of hair loss:
1. Telogen Effluvium
During telogen effluvium, hair shifts faster than normal from its growing phase into the "resting" phase before moving quickly into the shedding, or telogen, phase.
Telogen effluvium is a phenomenon that occurs due a temporary trigger eg. after pregnancy, major surgery, drastic weight loss, or extreme stress.
In this case large amounts of hair is shed every day, usually when shampooing, styling, or brushing. It can also be a side effect of certain medications, such as antidepressants, beta-blockers, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
The Symptoms: Men and women with telogen effluvium typically notice diffuse hair loss 6 weeks to 3 months after a stressful event. At its peak, may lose handfuls of hair.
Simple Test: Your therapist may look for small "club-shaped" bulbs on the fallen hair's roots. The bulbs mean the hair has gone through a complete cycle of growth, suggesting that the cycle may have sped up due to stress.
2. Hereditary Hair Loss
Hair loss that is genetic is known as androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness) and, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, is the most common cause of hair loss. The gene can be inherited from either your mother's or father's side of the family and dictates how sex hormones trigger a particular pattern of permanent hair loss.
At it’s very basic -testosterone converts to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is held in a hair follicle's oil glands. DHT shrinks hair follicles, making it impossible for healthy hair to survive.
So while testosterone levels in a blood test may be considered normal –reduced oestrogen and elevated DHT may offset the sensitive balance.
The symptoms: Men and women with this trait tend to develop thinning at the hairline, the vertex (crown of the head) or in some cases, the hair loss may be diffuse, meaning it's spread across the entire scalp.
The condition develops slowly and may start as early as your 20s.
Active compounds in ordinary hair-growth shampoos and conditioners degrade quickly on the surface of the scalp – where they are totally useless.
