Lasers in Surgery and Medicine
Recently, the use of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been proposed as an alternative treatment for the prevention of hair loss and to stimulate hair regrowth in both MPHL and FPHL, with possibly better outcomes and minimal risk. A previous review concluded that LLLT appears to be a safe and effective therapy for multiple forms of alopecia . Due to their minimal risk, there are now two commercially available LLLT devices that are FDA-approved.

Eleven studies were evaluated, which investigated a total of 680 patients, consisting of 444 males and 236 females. Nine out of 11 studies assessing hair count/hair density found statistically significant improvements in both males and females following LLLT treatment. Additionally, hair thickness and tensile strength significantly improved in two out of four studies. Patient satisfaction was investigated in five studies, and was overall positive, though not as profound as the objective outcomes.
The majority of studies covered in this review found an overall improvement in hair regrowth, thickness, and patient satisfaction following LLLT therapy. Although we should be cautious when interpreting these findings, LLLT therapy seems to be a promising
