Is it true that low-level laser therapy or LLLT can be performed after hair transplants to promote growth and help the survival of the grafts?

We offer low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) to all our patients. We feel it does increase the blood circulation to the scalp. Increasing the blood circulation to the scalp may help reduce the incidence of post-operative shock and/or hair loss as well as create a quicker turn around of the sleep cycle, leading to hair growing sooner.

There have been no real studies to date to prove that low-level laser therapy used post-operatively in hair transplantation procedures has any negative affects on the procedure itself.
