Laser Light Therapy

Lasers are the new gold standard for hair and skin treatments. Low level laser light therapy  (LLLT) for hair regrowth has helped thousands of men and women worldwide to get rid of light to moderate hair fall and regain hair. Human hair provides protection to the scalp, regulates body temperature and helps with evaporation and perspiration but more than that hair are valued as an indication of aesthetics and youth in both males and females. The presence or absence of hair is directly proportional to the emotional wellbeing of a person. Most people recover the daily hair loss of 50-10 hair but for many hair fall becomes a nightmare. This is evident in the increasing number of people reaching out to hair treatment specialist in India for hair regrowth treatments.
