A technology has recently emerged out as a non-surgical replacement for treating hair loss - low level laser therapy (LLLT). The technology has been around for more than 50 years and has been proven to be useful in treating chronic pain, decreasing inflammation, and helping with wound healing. Interestingly, some of the initial experiments with LLLT in the 1960's suggested it can result in increased hair growth. A Hungarian researcher, Andre Mester was investigating if LLLT caused cancer in a mouse when he noticed that the treated spots actually showed increased hair growth. This observation was mostly lost until the last few years.
