Hair Loss Q & A

Body Contourz

What causes hair loss in men and women?

Male pattern baldness is the biggest culprit for hair loss in men. This genetic condition means you inherit hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT (a byproduct of testosterone), so the lifespan of the hair follicle is shorter than normal. Eventually, the follicles may stop producing hair altogether.

Women’s hair loss can come from the same condition of having hair follicles that are overly sensitive to DHT. Additionally, as a woman, you may experience hair loss or thinning hair as a result of a traumatic physical experience like pregnancy and childbirth, malnutrition, or chemotherapy.

How does the Sunetics laser work to treat hair loss?

The Sunetics laser system uses low-level light therapy (LLLT) to stimulate your hair follicles so they produce new hair growth. The Sunetics laser is FDA-cleared for use on men and women who experience thinning hair and hair loss, and it’s a noninvasive, pain-free procedure without side effects.

LLLT has the unique ability to:

  • Increase circulation within hair follicles
  • Increase the way the follicles absorb nutrition
  • Increase the removal of DHT
  • Repair weakened hair follicles
  • Increase oxygen and calcium ion mobilization
  • Decrease inflammation within follicles

LLLT works at a cellular level to remove DHT and stimulate your hair follicles to grow new, healthy hair. As a result, you get fuller, thicker hair that grows naturally from your head.

You experience results from Sunetics LLLT treatments in three stages: 

What kind of results can I expect from LLLT treatments?

  • Reduction of hair loss
  • Thicker, fuller hair
  • New hair growth

Over a series of treatment sessions, you first notice that you’re losing less hair, then that the quality of your existing hair growth improves, and finally that your new hair grows into normal, full-sized hairs because the follicles are no longer damaged.

The team at Body Contourz works with you to develop an individualized treatment plan based on your needs. The treatment itself is a convenient, 20-minute session in which you sit comfortably under the Sunetics laser so the light can shine on your head. There’s no downtime or side effects, and you can return to your daily activities immediately following your session.
