Notice your hair falling out daily?
…it may not be as bad as you think.
The average person loses 50 to 100 hairs per day. That is considered “normal” and not a cause for concern. It happens when you’re taking a shower, blow-drying your hair, or even just sleeping. And while most people don’t see these few loose strands as a cause for alarm, for many others it’s a cause for concern.
Whether your hair is in the early stages of receding or already showing signs of more significant thinning, there are quite a few options available on the market to stop the progression of hair loss so you can free yourself from the stress and frustration.
But first, let’s get into the “why.”
According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), hair loss and thinning affect 50 million men and 30 million women in the U.S. Many conditions and diseases can result in hair loss, the AAD reports, as can improper hair care.
While the exact cause of hair loss may not be fully understood, the most common type of hair loss is due to genetics - called male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. It usually occurs gradually and in predictable patterns — a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair in women.
Heredity also affects the age at which you begin to lose hair, the rate of hair loss, and the extent of baldness, the Mayo Clinic points out. Pattern baldness is most common in men and can begin as early as puberty. This type of hair loss may involve both hair thinning and miniaturization (hair becomes soft, fine, and short over time).
Going beyond heredity and the “normal” daily shedding that we all experience, the AAD points out that people who notice their hair shedding in large amounts after combing or brushing can trace the problem back to one or more of these 12 causes:
The physical symptoms of hair loss can be traumatic, but the psychosocial impact of hair loss can be just as severe, according to the AAD. “Hair loss can cause dramatic and devastating emotions in patients that can negatively impact their quality of life,” the organization states.
Studies on the psychosocial impact of hair loss have found patients’ self-esteem, body image, and self-confidence to be negatively affected,” the organization reports, with depression, low self-esteem, altered self-image, and less frequent and enjoyable social engagement being some of the most impactful side effects of hair loss.
Up until recently, hair loss sufferers had just a handful of hair restoration methods at their avail, none of which have been proven universally effective. Topical creams, oral/prescription based medications, injectable cortisone or hormonal medications, hair transplantation surgery, and scalp reduction surgery were all used to help men with male pattern baldness and women with thinning hair.
Some of these methods require surgical procedures that may leave scars while others required hair loss sufferers to take drugs that could produce even more negative side effects than the hair loss itself.
So what other options do hair loss sufferers have?
Thanks to advancements in technology over the last few years, there’s a new solution that men and women can turn to restore their hair from younger days without the need for pills or surgery.
Commonly known as low-level laser therapy (or LLLT), this FDA-cleared solution uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat hair loss and thinning hair for both men and women. LLLT uses non-invasive, pain-free light technology to stimulate hair follicles and scientifically induce regrowth of thicker, fuller hair.
All across the U.S., hair-loss sufferers are realizing the benefits of LLLT for restoring their hair’s youthful consistency, texture, and glow. Here are five more benefits of laser hair growth therapy:
There is a myriad of hair loss solutions available on the market, but few can boast a safe, effective, and side-effect free approach for users like LLLT can. In addition, many physicians believe laser therapy can be used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments to boost results, so it becomes a no-brainer to add LLLT to your hair care regimen.
“I recommend laser therapy to anyone suffering from alopecia as it’s clinically proven to reverse hair loss.” – Dr. Adam Bodian
Adam Bodian, M.D. is a board-certified laser surgeon and a member of the American Academy of Dermatology based out of New York. He conducted the latest clinical research study on the top-rated laser hair growth device on Amazon - the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System.
For the 80 million men and women in the U.S. who suffer from hair loss, there is hope after all. If you have not yet tried laser hair therapy for yourself, be warned - there is a small chance that it may not work for you due to people’s varying response to light therapy.
With that in mind, however, companies like Freedom Laser Therapy (that’s us, for those who aren’t aware) understand the natural skepticism and uncertainty around this type of technology. In response to this, we’ve decided to provide a 6-month 100% money back guarantee to our customers. This gives YOU the opportunity to try the device risk-free in the comfort of your own home - we know how embarrassing it can be - and gives you a peace of mind knowing that you’re guaranteed results or a full refund.
So if you’re ready to take the leap of faith, take a look at the iRestore to find out for yourself whether low-level light therapy can reverse your hair loss and help you look and feel younger today.
