Stimulating hair growth while fighting hair loss.
The Dermal Papilla controls the hair follicle development and growth. It is located in the deepest part of the hair bulb. The hair matrix is one of the most rapidly proliferating tissues of the human body. The hair matrix, which is a part of the epidermis layer containing keratinocytes embeds a “ball” of specialized dermal cells called dermal papilla (DP). The DP plays a major role in hair follicle development and growth. It initiates the growth of new hair by controlling the switch from degeneration (telogen) to growth (anagen) phase in the hair life cycle.
Low-Level Lasers “energize” the tissue since light is a form of energy. For example, laser light on scalp and hair follicles provides high levels of light which are used by the cells in the scalp and hair to assist in the normal chemical processes performed by those cells. The term for this is photobiostimulation. The most common example of light converting into chemical energy is photosynthesis, where plants are fed via light converted into chemical energy. In a similar way, laser penetrates into soft tissue and increases the action of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule that is a major carrier of energy from one reaction site to another in all living cells. By doing so, laser light increases the energy available to cells so they take in nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.
