There is nothing ‘hairy’ casual about receiving low level therapy. It is not even a matter of ‘just to be on the safe side’ and you should view this careful consideration as a very wise and responsible choice. Anything stronger could very well damage a lot more than you were desperate to bargain with. Indeed, the sudden and dramatic loss of natural hair for whatever reason is certainly no laughing matter. It is going to be a traumatic experience for anyone at any given time. The low level light therapy for hair loss tends to err on the side of extreme caution.
Undoubtedly, much that is positive about laser therapy in general has already been said. So many overriding positives over conventional care and treatment work has already been emphasized. But why all the caution. Why not, in fact. Would it not be better to play it safe? Dealing with the sensitive matter of restoring someone’s hair does require some caution, surely, especially since you are going to be working with lasers.
Pinpoint the laser in the wrong direction and at the wrong frequency and the hair clinic could be looking at a possible lawsuit. A malpractice suit. Instead of restoring the hair, damage could be done to the scalp, permanent damage, in fact. While therapies may work well for a majority of people, there is always that possibility that it is going to fail in certain cases. It really depends on the condition of that person’s scalp.
The caution could be taken a step further. Consult with a registered dermatologist and let him have the last word. Just to be on the safe side. Of course, you do not require a medical prescription to visit the hair clinic.
