THE SCIENCE OF HAIR LOSS
Why Do We Lose Our Hair?
If you are looking into medically effective therapies to treat you thinning hair or balding, you probably already know that 98% of hair loss is genetic. You just have to look into the hair status of members of both sides of your family, looking back a few generations, and you now know why your hair is falling out.
Hair loss is “polygenic”, which means that bits of genetic information from both sides of your family are taken into account for your hair loss. This genetic information is additive; so, for example, if your mother’s grandmother was a woman with thin hair or your father’s brother was bald, then this is where your pattern of hair loss is from. And…you can’t change those genes!
As you have noticed, with male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss—both of which are also called androgenetic alopecia, didn’t happen overnight! It takes months to years for hair loss to occur before it is noticed. Hair doesn’t just fall out overnight. What happens is that, genetically determined, the hair cycle begins to turn off. This process, which is progressive throughout life, is called miniaturization. It is an important concept to understand.
In both women and men, over months to years, the hair follicles actually shrink in size. As this happens, the size of the hair shafts they produce also miniaturize. The hairs that we see gradually become shorter and finer and with less pigment. As more and more of these miniaturized hairs replace the robust, thick, long ones that we love, thinning becomes noticeable.
A statistic about this process is: after 50% of the hairs on your scalp have already fallen out is when you just begin to notice thinning! It is astounding and frightening! This means that the process of miniaturization is happening for a long time before it is recognized. This is why, for more than 35 years, I have encouraged my patients to treat their hair loss right away and not to wait. Because if they wait, then they definitely will have less hair at their next office examination.
Why Does Miniaturization Occur?
How Does the AUXO A300™ Work to Treat Hair Loss?
The AUXO A300™ laser cap, with its 300 surface mount technology laser diodes, works in a couple of ways to stabilize further progression of thinning and shedding and also to re-grow those tiny miniaturized hairs into thicker, fuller, and longer terminal hairs. As indicated already, the major effect from this advanced device is to increase that blood flow in the scalp’s capillary network, which directly feeds the follicles with oxygen and nutrients and removes cellular metabolic toxins. Additionally, the AUXO A300™ stimulates the mitochondria of the cells, which are the workhouses of cellular activity of all cells.
Is More, Better? Yes and No!
Remember, I indicated that a true laser is coherent light energy that does not spread beyond its thin beam; this is important. More is also better in that the greater number of laser diodes in a device, the better the coverage on the blood supply. I call it laser density. Think about it. The closer those laser beams are in a situated in a device—the more numbers of diodes within a given unit—the more stimulation of the blood supply. The AUXO A300™ laser cap has a whopping 300 lasers! In this case, more definitely is better.
More is not better when it comes to the amount of time the laser is used per treatment; in other words, using the laser for a longer time than it is prescribed to do is not good. It can, in fact, be counterproductive in treating your hair loss. More is also not better if the device is used more frequently than it is supposed to be used—meaning using it more often than it is recommended.
The AUXO A300™ is designed to provide just the right amount of treatment time and frequency.
How Does Photobiomodulation Work to Treat Hair Loss?
What is Low Level Laser Therapy (Photobiomodulation)?
The AUXO A300™ is State of the Art
- 90% efficacy to stabilize hair loss
- 60% effectiveness to regrow miniaturized hairs
- Because the lasers no longer flash or pulse, treatment time is just ten minutes each day
- It is used in the privacy and comfort of your home or while you are travelling
- It has a total of 300 SMT diodes—more reliable and higher dosage than any other device
- It is made as a soft, flexible shell that is lined with medical-grade silicone, which makes it very comfortable to wear
- The battery is small and powerful
- There is a 5-year limited manufacturer’s warranty for the AUXO A300™.
- It is the ONLY device cleared by the FDA for laser hair regrowth to use surface mount technology
- There are no side effects with the use of the AUXO A300™ laser device
- $3000, 5yrs at the minimum = $ 1.64 / day!!! Less than a cup of coffee to keep your hair
