About Laser Hair Therapy
Using the healing power of laser energy, laser hair therapy stimulates new hair growth and improves circulation to the scalp. At Madeliene Elaine in Chevy Chase, MD, this innovative procedure helps patients who suffer from androgenetic alopecia. Also known as male or female pattern baldness, you may experience thinning on the top of the head, near the part, or around the temples. Dr. Madeliene Elaine Gainers is a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in hair loss for all individuals and offers additional expertise in the treatment of hair loss for black people and persons of color. Through careful diagnosis and advanced treatment options, like laser hair therapy, Dr. Gainers can help rejuvenate your hair's appearance and improve your overall confidence.
Should I Receive Laser Hair Therapy?
Professional laser hair therapy is a procedure that helps men and women who:
- Experience hair fall or shedding
- See thinning hair near the temples
- Have a widening part
- Experience bald spots in the center of the head
This treatment works best during the early stages of hair loss and helps all hair lengths. At your consultation, Dr. Gainers will listen to your hair goals and concerns, review your medical history, and create a treatment plan.
What to Expect From Laser Hair Therapy
After creating a treatment plan that outlines the costs of laser hair therapy and how many follow-up appointments you may need, patients will come into the office and sit comfortably as Dr. Gainers administers the treatment. During this time, you should not experience any pain, but you may feel a slight warming sensation. Your appointment can take about 10 – 20 minutes to complete. For the best results, you may need to come into the office a couple of times per month. Dr. Gainers will determine the number of appointments during your consultation. After finishing your appointment sessions, it generally takes about six months to see your results. However, many patients enjoy the benefits much sooner. If you prefer laser hair therapy at home, we recommend LLLT at-home treatment options, which can be discussed further during your consultation.
