Hair Regrowth and Lichen Planopilaris Symptom Reduction

Quick Dose Info

Wavelength (nm):
650/660
Joules (J):
4 J/cm^2

RESULTS

Researchers treated patients to low level light therapy (LLLT) using red light with a  630 nm wavelength.

All treated patients had lichen planopilaris.

Symptoms included redness (erythema), corkscrew hairs indicating too much keratin production (perifollicular hyperkeratosis), and hair loss.

After 3 and 6 months, the patients had more and thicker hair.

After 3 months, the erythema and perifollicular hyperkeratosis settled down, but after 6 months it had returned.
