Understanding Genetic Hair Fall
There is an age-old adage that if mom’s family history has hair loss, especially her father, then it can be passed down to her son. If father’s family history has the problem, it could pass to his daughter. These myths are traveling alongside countless other genetic theories on hair loss. Though, it is now cleared that one of the prime reasons of baldness can be genetic. But these genes can be passed to offspring from either parent. The modern science has indicated that genes can contribute baldness but it is still unclear the exact mode of inheritance.
Genetic hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia which is referred as male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. The genetics of the androgenetic alopecia is complex, involving an inherited sensitization of genetically predisposed hair follicles to the hormone DHT. It is a progressive type of hair loss that affects the front, crown, hairline and temporal areas of the scalp of men. With times, hair follicles start producing thin, fine and light colored hair. The condition is called villus hairs. They start thinning because of miniaturization, a process when normal hair is chocked by dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It slowly keeps shortening the growth cycle of strands. Over time, follicles affected by DHT get close and scalp starts noticing.
Androgenetic alopecia can start as early as puberty and more than half of the male affected in their 50s. And the figure can increase up to 80% at the age of 70. A majority of women wouldn’t notice any thinning hair until menopause.
Laser Light Therapy
LLLT is one of the most reliable and effective treatments for hair restorations. The Low-Level Light therapy is capable of reversing miniaturization which prevents hairs to re-grow fuller and healthier. Laser light is absorbed by weak cells and slowly start returning to healthy state. The light repairs unhealthy cells.
How does it work?
There are three phases of hair growth- the Anagen phase is the growth stage, the Catagen phase is the transition stage where the follicles start shrinking and in the Telogen phase, hair follicles start dormant and shed. LLLT stimulation helps to shift follicles into Anagen stage, thus hair restoration is gained. The red light therapy produces a specific wavelength which has the ability to be absorbed by the follicles. It increases blood flow to the scalp and stimulate metabolism which is necessary for growth
