Trichotillomania, also known as “hair-pulling syndrome” or “pathological hair-pulling,” is an impulse control disorder with the irrepressible urge to pull out one’s hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, and other parts of the body.

Hair loss is an extremely common cause for concern not only with women but also with men. While there are very effective and natural hair restoration solutions available today, quite often, individuals suffering from alopecia or hair loss are hesitant to consider hair transplant surgery due to it’s invasive nature and up-front cost. While patient financing overcomes the cost concerns for many men and women, not all individuals suffering from hair loss are ideal candidates for hair transplant surgery since they may be too young to reasonably consider hair transplantation or they may simply not have enough donor hair to transplant. Similarly, they may also wish to achieve a thicker hair density than would normally be possible with hair transplantation.
Laser hair therapy or low level laser hair growth treatments is a clinically proven technology for achieving hair health and hair regrowth in men and women of all ages and hair types. This non-invasive, painless hair loss treatment stimulates blood flow to the scalp while at the same time encouraging follicle health and new hair growth. About 85% of laser hair therapy treatment patients are able to stop the progression of hair loss while achieving healthier, more healthy looking hair. Laser hair therapy is also used as a post-operative hair transplant aftercare procedure to encourage scalp healing and helping to increase the overall likelihood of hair transplant surgery success.
