Laser Therapy For Hair Loss: The Benefits and Side Effects

December 4, 2019



Hair Loss is More Common Than You Thought!



We lose around 50 to 100 strands of hair every day and for most of us, this isn’t an issue since hair grows back. For some people, however, hair regrowth isn’t possible.


Causes of Hair Loss

Age, stress, genetics, and hormonal changes.


How to Counter Hair Loss?

Undergo hair loss treatment!


One of the most popular hair loss treatments worldwide is laser therapy.


In Singapore, it’s also the most common hair loss treatment since most patients find it safe and tolerable.




Laser Hair Therapy

Laser therapy, also known as low-level light therapy, utilises a cold laser/light energy to stimulate hair regrowth. Also, it’s a noninvasive procedure that doesn’t penetrate the skin. Apart from that, what makes it an efficient form of hair loss treatment?


How Does Laser Hair Therapy Work?

Low-level light therapy is similar to watering plants. In this analogy, our scalp is the plant, while the laser is the water. The scalp absorbs energy from the laser, which stimulates hair follicles and distributes blood supply and nutrients in the process. As a result, low-level light therapy promotes hair regrowth, the same way water helps a plant grow.



Anyone can be a candidate for laser therapy. If you notice any signs of hair thinning, you can visit a hair loss clinic in Singapore to see if your condition is worsening.


Benefits of Laser Therapy:
  • Noninvasive. The laser does not leave marks or scars in the skin.
  • Painless. Expect nonexistent to minimal discomfort during and after the treatment.
  • Hair regrowth. The treatment stimulates hair follicles to promote hair regrowth.
  • Prevent hair loss. By stimulating hair regrowth, the treatment prevents hair loss from progressing.


Like all other forms of treatment, there’s the risk of experiencing side effects caused by low-level light therapy. Consider this possibility if you’re thinking of going through laser therapy.


The Side Effects of Laser Therapy

Since low-level light therapy is a noninvasive treatment, the risk of side effects is usually rare. In the presence of side effects, they are usually minor and mostly temporary.


While these side effects are uncommon, you should discuss with your doctor to calculate the risks of any negative results post-treatment. If you experience these side effects after treatment, consult a doctor immediately.


  • Headaches
  • Burning sensation
  • Scalp redness
  • Itching


Experts recommend people who experience hair loss to undergo laser hair therapy. It’s painless, and the risk of side effects is low, so you shouldn’t have to worry about any negative results.


As with all things, there are downsides to the treatment as well. For insance, it’s time-consuming; chances are you’ll undergo several sessions to achieve possible results. Also, it can be expensive, depending on your budget and the clinic’s offers.


Still, laser hair therapy is worth trying out if. It’s a stress-free experience that can get you positive returns. Visit a hair loss clinic in Singapore and try laser hair therapy today!
