LLLT and topical minoxidil

Did you know? Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is one of the most versatile treatments for hair loss on the market. A primary reason for this is because LLLT can be combined effectively with other evidence-based treatments for enhanced hair regrowth.

LLLT and topical minoxidil may be particularly effective in combination, resulting in increased hair regrowth compared to if either is used as monotherapy. This has been demonstrated in a number of recent studies, which are cited below.1,2,3,4 

Other advantages of this combination include that it can be used in both men and women, and with extremely low incidence of adverse side effects.
