I think I want a hair transplant. I have been reading up on them and also looking at low-level laser treatments. After I have a hair transplant would it be useful to begin the laser treatments to stimulate blood flow to the new hair grafts?

Low-level laser therapy following a hair transplantation procedure is sometimes recommended by physicians. The reasoning behind this recommendation is that the physician feels there is a benefit from low-level laser therapy with an increase in blood circulation to the scalp. This may help to promote healing, limit inflammation and potentially speed up the sleep cycle of the hairs leading to quicker hair growth.

Low-level laser light therapy can also be used on patients who have not had hair transplantation surgery. This has been shown to help some patients but also to have not much of an affect on others.
