A new product for treatment of hair with laser technology has been launched in UK.
The product developed by Apira Science Inc, looks like an old salon hairdryer. The helmet, called iGrow Hair Growth System, fires red lasers into the scalp to treat hair loss. The makers claim that it provides a minimum of 35-40 percent increase in hair growth.
The helmet works using 51 low-level red laser and LED lights to help re-energize cells in the follicles, called low-level laser therapy (LLLT).
The helmet has several fascinating features that are user friendly. It has a built-in headphone base which enables you to connect any music, audio, TV or entertainment device while your hair treatment is on.
The makers say, it is to be worn for 25 minutes a time and is recommended for men and women with alopecia or those with baldness in the family.
“After a few months their hair should start looking and feeling thicker, healthier and stronger. After nine months they will see the maximum results and continued use with the iGrow will continue these results,” Klein said.
The product has its reference in a study published in the Lasers in Surgery & Medicine journal. According to the study, the product encourages new, healthy hair while doubling the follicle size of existing hair and slowing down or stopping hair loss.
According to a leading science website, the published study was only conducted on men and a similar study on women is due to be published shortly and the early results look “promising”, a website reported.
