Clinical Data & Photos

 

A 41 year old Caucasian female presented with a long history of hair loss. No therapies had been used. She reported progressive thinning along her part line along with noticeable shedding of hairs in the shower, on her brush, and on her clothes. She denied symptoms of pain or itching.

Examination revealed a widened midline part line, retained frontal hairline, and decreased luster and shine of the hair overall, consistent with a diagnosis of female pattern hair loss. There was no scalp inflammation, and no evidence of infection or scarring scalp disease.

Low level laser light therapy was initiated with a LaserCap®, used 30 minutes every other day. No topical or oral treatments were initiated. At her follow-up visit at six months, the patient reported ease of use, and a significant decrease in shedding, and described her hair as “shinier” and “healthier.”

Examination revealed a significantly decreased midline part width, and a noticeable healthy hair luster. Figure 1 shows the comparison between the baseline and 6 month appearance.

A 58 year old Caucasian woman presented with a many year history of thinning hair throughout the scalp. No therapies had been tried. The patient reported significant daily shedding, but denied pain or itching.

Examination revealed healthy hair and scalp, but with a significantly widened central part line consistent with a diagnosis of female pattern hair loss. No inflammation was noted.

Low level laser light therapy was initiated with a LaserCap®, used 30 minutes every other day. No topical or oral treatments were initiated. At her follow-up visit at five months, the patient reported ease of use and decreased shedding, and described her hair noticeably thicker. Examination revealed a significantly decreased midline part width and thicker hair volume. Figure 2 shows the comparison between the baseline and 5 month appearance.

A 57 year old Caucasian woman presented with a long history of female pattern hair loss. She had undergone a hair transplant in the past with significant increase in hair density. Six months after the procedure, the patient experienced significant thinning throughout the scalp, involving areas both treated and not treated with surgery. No oral or topical treatments were being used.

Examination revealed significant mid scalp thinning extending from the vertex scalp to the hairline. A hair pull was notable for excess hairs easily pulled from the scalp. There was no scalp inflammation noted. The findings were consistent with ongoing female pattern hair loss.

Low level laser light therapy was initiated with a LaserCap®, used 30 minutes every other day. No topical or oral treatments were initiated. At her follow-up visit at six months, the patient reported ease of use, a dramatic improvement in hair density and thickness, and a complete cessation of shedding. Examination revealed a significant recovery of central scalp hair volume. A hair pull was negative for excessive hairs. Figure 3 shows the comparison between the baseline and 6 month appearance.

A 34 year old Caucasian woman presented with slowly progressive hair thinning and excessive daily shedding. This was causing her significant psychosocial distress. She had tried topical minoxidil in the past without success.

Examination revealed a mildly increased central part width, and an overall thin hair volume, consistent with a diagnosis of female pattern hair loss. No scalp inflammation was noted.
