Laser Treatment for Hair Loss Consultation

During your initial laser treatment for hair loss consultation your laser therapist will want to know what your expectations are for the results of the treatment. This is important as it will produce the goals that your therapy team will aim for in order to give you the best possible match between the actual results of your therapy and your expected results. It will also give the clinic the opportunity to let you know if you expectations are unrealistic or if another method might be more suitable for you. For example, if you have areas of scalp that are completely bald where you wish to have hair replacement, laser treatment will not work and you would need to consider one of the many other hair replacement techniques available. However, if you went down this route, your therapist would be able to advice you on how you could still use laser treatment after your hair transplant surgery (whatever type you decide on using) in order to stimulate further growth of your implanted hair and reduce any further hair loss. 

Any concerns that you have about the risks and safety of the laser treatment will be discussed so that all of your questions are answered. It is important that you realise that your initial consultation is a two-way information exchange so you should use the opportunity to ask as many questions as you can (no question is a stupid question) as well as answering all of the questions that your clinic team asks of you. They will need to take a full medical history from you to check that they think you are suitable for laser therapy and they will also ask you to sign a consent form to make sure that you understand the potential risks involved.

You laser treatment therapist will advise you on the best type of laser for your requirements as well as the treatment sessions that you would need in order to achieve your desired results. This could involve a year long period of treatment where you have laser treatment at the clinic every month or two weeks, or it could include a 3 month long period using a hand held device every day. Different clinics will have slightly different laser equipment so you may want to consider having a number of different initial consultations with a range of clinics in order to see which clinic can offer you the most convenient treatment plan for your lifestyle. In addition, different clinics will have different price plans, so if this is important to you then you should certainly consider having multiple consultations and checking for seasonal offers with all your local clinics.
