Low Level Laser Therapy

Low level Laser Therapy is the method of using laser light at very low power to stimulate body cells.

LLLT was first discovered soon after the invention of the Ruby laser. Discovered that use of this laser light at low power on the backs of shaven mice caused the hair to grow back faster. Subsequently many other uses of LLLT were discovered.

LLLT is used not just for hair rejuvenation but also for faster healing of wounds and ulcers, in chronic joint pain, muscle pain, etc and for rejuvenation of skin.

LLLT uses light at red or infrared frequency. The light is projected on to the scalp and kept for the specified time. The exact mechanism through which LLLT acts is not known, but it is hypothesized that LLLT acts on the mitochondria in cells to cause increased ATP generation which in turn leads to increased oxygenation and activity of the cell.

Downtown Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic performed the first FUE Hair Transplant in Guwahati, Assam and the North East in 2012 and offers the best and most cost effective results in completely modern and hospital based setting for total safety. More than 500 procedures have been performed and more than 5000 patients treated till date from all over the North East and other Indian states and including patients from outside India.

LLLT will not cause bald areas of the scalp to regenerate hair follicles. It is similar to the fact that medicines can help a sick person to get well but nothing can revive a dead eperson. So also LLLT cannot revive the dead hair follicles in bald areas but it can rejuvenate follicles which have become weak. LLLT works best for persons who have been having severe hair fall. It also works for those with thin hair, weak hair, hair which has become easily breakable, etc and helps to make such hair stronger.

LLLT is available in Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic. A sophisticated 80-laser array helmet-type assembly is used which is to be worn on the head. It is used for those with excessive hair fall and weak hair. During the process, the helmet is worn on the head and the patient sits in a chair for the required time. It is a completely painless process and the patient will not feel anything.

Sessions last for 15-20 minutes once or twice a week for 6 weeks. This is sufficient to reduce hair loss and rejuvenate the hair. Each session costs Rs 500.

There are quite a lot of scientific studies done on LLLT. Most studies show a clear benefit in hair rejuvenation but a few studies have not reported any positive results. There is hence a scientific controversy as to whether it actually helps in hair rejuvenation and other conditions in which it is used. It has both academic supporters and detractors. Overall there is reasonable scientific evidence to go for this treatment, on the premise that it at least will not cause any harm, even if it does not bring any benefits. Links to some studies both positive and neutral are given below. It is really up to the individual person to read up and decide whether to go for this treatment.

Quality assuarance:
Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic takes several steps to ensure that quality is maintained for each and every patient. The key to quality maintenance is to implement quantizable quality standards and maintain proper documentation and review of processes. Downtown Hospital is an ISO 9001:2008 and NABH accredited hospital which demands strict adherence to quality control.Steps taken are:

Dr. P. J. Mazumdar is the first and only American Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and all procedures are done following the ethical and technical guidelines of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery. As such, patients can be assured of receiving full professional care as per International standards approved by the ABHRS and ISHRS.

100% safety assurance: all procedures are done in the main OT of Downtown Hospital with its full complement of anesthesiologists and critical care specialists. Hence patients are assured of full safety standards at the same level as that of major surgeries including transplant surgeries.

100% sterilization assurance: since procedures are done in the major OT full sterilization is maintained. Fumigation is done every week and swab tests are done to check for contamination.

Best instrumentation: Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic uses the best available instruments like 6X Heine Loupe for precision and accuracy, Blunt Titanium punches which avoids damage and transection of the grafts, Choi implanters to standardise the process of planting and prevent damage during planting, Major OT level sterilization, fumigation and autoclaving of all instruments, etc.

Counting trays: Counting trays are used to contain the grafts and all patients are given photographs on their mobiles which they can use to easily count the number of grafts taken out so that they can be sure that they have received the correct number of grafts.

Efficiency count: Efficiency counts for FUE like transection rates and speed of transplant are noted and documented for each case and reviewed every 10 cases. Arogyam Hair Transplant achieves international standards of transection and speed consistently.

Correct recepient density: To ensure correct recepient density, 'density stamps' are used to ensure proper density is achieved. Angle and direction of hair is meticulously maintained.

Out of body time: The out of body time, the time for which the graft is outside the body, is the most critical factor for success in hair transplant. Aroyam Hair Transplant follows a special procedure to ensure that this time is the minimum. This is done by doing only 500-600grafts at a time and then replanting them. This ensures that time out of body is less than or equal to1 hour only. This is the shortest period acheivable. Many centers do upto 2000-2500 grafts at a time so that time out of body goes upto 4-5 hours. We are proud of our time out of body quantum. Though this may cause some sacrifice of time but results are more important.

Follow up: follow up period is critical for the patient when there are many doubts and anxieties in his mind. In our clinic, Dr. P. J. Mazumdar will remain always accessible to the patient directly on his personal cell for any questions the patient may have during this period.
