Laser treatment for hair loss is generally suitable for most people and can be carried out on both females and males, however there are a few exceptions. For example, if you are sensitive to laser light then you should certainly consult your GP before considering undertaking laser treatment for hair loss as you might be unsuitable for the technique. If you have a history of skin cancer you may also want to consult your GP before considering using this technique.

You should also know that laser treatment for hair loss will not work on areas of your scalp that are completely bald. This is due to the fact that the laser treatment works by stimulating your hair follicles to grow (and reducing hair loss by strengthening your follicles) so it cannot work if there are no follicles to stimulate.
