Learn about red light hair regrowth therapy from Washington area dermatologist
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, our team of professionals, including Dr. Cheryl Burgess, Board-certified dermatologist, are here to assist individuals with solutions for common skin, hair, and nail concerns. This includes patients who are faced with hair loss or thinning. Instead of dealing with products that fail to provide results, many times Washington, DC area patients may be advised to consider red light therapy.
Red light therapy explained
Regrowth of the hair with red light therapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgeries such as hair transplants. Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her staff are committed to offering patients solutions that are effective and comfortable for men and women ready to target hair concerns. Red light therapy is the use of a special device known as the Capillus 655 nm red light treatment. This technologically-advanced device is used along with stem cell-growth factor serum for amazing results in hair growth.
The red light with the Capillus 655 nm stimulates and energizes the cells that are located within the hair follicles to provide regrowth using LLLT (low level light treatment). It is perfect for patients with thinning and patterned hair loss. Alopecia continues to be treated in this method, and clinical trials consistently show results. Many physicians are learning about the effectiveness of red light therapy and are using it for their patients. The light penetrates the skin up to 10mm deep, and provides wavelengths that are therapeutic and effective in stimulating hair growth.
In addition to hair loss, red light therapy can be used in a dermatologist’s office for:
- Treating burns
- Addressing dermatitis
- Treating non-healing ulcers
- Treating edema
Medical professionals find LLLT to be effective in treating several conditions, making it one of the most technologically advanced solutions for a variety of issues. When it comes to treating hair loss, LLLT is best at increasing cell metabolism, improving the health of the blood vessels, stimulating the sebaceous glands for healthier-looking hair, and improving the melanin production to reduce the growth of gray hairs. Hair restoration using this treatment is highly desirable. Hair growth with this method shows increased thickness, darkness, and overall improvement of the visible hair on the scalp, helping patients build confidence and self-esteem.
Approximately 70 percent of men and 40 percent of women experience hair thinning or loss at some point in their lives, meaning that hair loss is an incredibly common concern. When patients in Washington, DC or Annapolis, MD visit Dr. Cheryl Burgess, they will be introduced to a variety of methods for treating these issues. With red light therapy, patients enjoy hair regrowth with little effort.
