Studies suggest that more than 50% of men over the age of 40 are affected by Androgenetic Alopecia,(common hair loss) and 75% of women over 65 also suffer from alopecia. Hair loss can also occur due to
- Hormonal changes
- Medical conditions, such as lupus and diabetes
- Poor nutrition
- Side effects of a medical treatment, such as chemotherapy
Treatments to stop hair loss and possibly reverse it include:
- Hair transplant surgery
- Red Light Therapy (Low-level laser therapy)
Red Light Therapy has been found to be a natural baldness treatment for both sexes with increased hair count, hair density, hair strength and hair thickness. Red Light Therapy has been shown to have a major stimulating effect on the dermal papilla cells which play a big role in the regulation of hair cycling and growth. Unlike some medications and surgery, all of these benefits are painless, non-invasive and come without any negative side effects.
