hi - im a new member and wondering if anyone can help me.
im 40 years old and my thinning hair really bothers me.
ive read about all different things. the most intriguing was the laser therapy.
does anyone know if this works? is there a general hair consultant that i can talk to regarding my situation?
your responses are greatly appreciated.

You should use the iahrs website to find local docs to talk to. try to get 3 opinions if you can.
also you can do research on actual science using the NIH website known as pubmed. do alot of ground work if you dont want to buy the wrong products and waste time.
Low level laser therapy is intended for men and women with thinning hair or pattern baldness caused by a hereditary condition. Patients with early stages of hair loss — typically those individuals presenting with hair loss equivalent to Norwood 1-3 are considered best candidates for this therapy. It’s absolutely safe, pain-free and has got a lot of positive reviews.
However, this is just on base of my knowledge and little experience. I hope you get the proper consultation from experienced consultant soon. It’s equally important to find out the right clinic to get the desired benefit out of your treatment. This is especially important in case of LLT, as it is no ‘miracle cure’ for hair loss. Evaluating your progress after treatment is highly recommended too.
