Laser Therapy for Hair Loss

March 2nd, 2007

Q: The makers of the HairMax LaserComb have claimed that it will “revolutionize the hair growth industry.” What do you think?

A: This claim is obviously overstated.

Since the Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) doesn’t affect the action of DHT on hair follicles, it doesn’t affect the underlying cause of genetic hair loss, and thus would be expected only to have limited effectiveness. The company’s own studies show that this is, indeed, the case.

It was also predicted that Rogaine would revolutionize the field of hair restoration and it had little impact.

In my opinion, only finasteride has made a significant impact on the long-term course of hair loss, particularly in its ability to postpone the need for surgical intervention such as hair transplants.
