 The Designed of Alopecia Treated Device by Using Light Stimulation
Invention discription
 Alopecia (Hair loss disease) affects approximately 57% of men and 25% of women. A loss of hair more than 100 pieces a day could signal Alopecia. Currently, Alopecia can be treated by drug and hair transplantation. However, drugs have side effects attached. Transplanted is prone to falling off of hair at the begining. Nowadays, light is widely-used in medical treatments, as the wavelength of 580-860 nm is capable of making cells more energy in cellular respiration. LLLT can be used to assist the growth of dermal papilla cells, the important part in hair growth, during the early phase after hair transplantation making the hair much stronger and not prone to fall off unlike in normal state.
