Below the abstract of this interesting study is presented
Hair loss has a high prevalence in the general population and can have significant medical and psychological sequelae.
Pattern hair loss and alopecia areata represent the major reasons patients present to dermatologists in relation to loss of hair. Because conventional treatment options are generally incompletely effective, novel methods for hair grown induction are being developed.
In this article, the role of using electromagnetic radiation, including low-level laser therapy for the management of loss of hair through phototrichogenesis, is reviewed.
