What's the Difference Between Laser and Ultrasound Hair Restoration

18 May, 2023 | Return|

Let's face it - hair loss is a common concern for most people, and the people of Boise are no exception! Fortunately, painless, non-surgical options are available to stimulate hair growth and restore thinning hair. Two of the most popular treatments are low-level laser therapy and ultrasound therapy. However, before choosing the best option for your hair restoration needs, it's essential to understand the differences between them.

What Are My Options For Non-Surgical Hair Restoration?

Laser Hair Restoration

A non-invasive hair restoration treatment, low-level laser therapy stimulates hair growth and improves circulation in the scalp with red or near-infrared light. It can be performed at home or in a clinic for a fairly affordable price.

Unfortunately, more research is needed to determine the safety and efficacy of laser hair restoration therapy. Some users have reported positive changes in their follicular strength and production, others have reported no changes whatsoever.

Ultrasound Hair Restoration

Ultrasound hair restoration is a non-invasive treatment that uses a technique called sonophoresis to increase blood flow to the scalp. It involves applying ultrasound waves to the scalp, stimulating the growth of new hair follicles, and strengthening existing ones.

Alma TED™ ultrasound hair restoration typically requires only three treatments, spaced one month apart and lasting no longer than 20-25 minutes. Patients have often reported finding these appointments relaxing, and results are typically seen after just one month. In some cases, the reinvigorated follicle grows back to its original color.

What is the Best Ultrasound-Based Hair Restoration Treatment?

Both LLLT and ultrasound hair restoration are painless, non-invasive, and have no shown side effects. However, ultrasound hair restoration has more research to support its efficacy and has been shown to save time and money for patients.

Renowned hair restoration expert Dr. Bauman, well-known for his quality hair transplant, recommends the Alma TED™ for hair restoration. This non-invasive treatment uses ultrasound waves to promote new hair growth and strengthen existing follicles.
