Phototherapy: Centuries of Scientific Discovery

The use of PhotoTherapy (light therapy) in medicine has a long history. The Egyptians filtered sunlight through precious gems to obtain desired colors of light. Archeologists have found ancient records on Egyptian papyri dating back to 1550 BC detailing PhotoTherapy "treatment." The Greeks built solarium cities in high mountains to harness the additional ultra-violet light available there for healing tuberculosis. And red light was used to quell the effects of the smallpox virus.

In 1903, the second Nobel Prize in Medicine (Physiology) was awarded to Niels Ryberg Finsen, M.D., in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases with concentrated light energy, "PhotoTherapy". Dr. Finsen was recognized for opening a whole new avenue for medical science.

It was this Nobel Prize winner's important discovery in the field of PhotoTherapy that laid the foundation for the invention of the HairMax LaserComb for the treatment of hair. Dr. Finsen is also responsible for bringing early credibility to this therapy.

Today's PhotoTherapy devices are used to treat everyone from newborn infants suffering from jaundice to adults seeking relief from skin conditions.

At Elite Hair Studio, we are confident the HairMax LaserComb will be a major step forward in controlling hair loss and stimulating hair re-growth* - breaking the cycle of emotional pain associated with hair loss.

Our goal at Elite Hair Studio is to provide hair loss sufferers with renewed self-confidence and hope, free from worry of losing their hair.
