Is LLLT Helpful For Treating Hair Loss?


Is low level laser therapy (LLLT) helpful for treating hair loss? To date there has been a number of studies that suggest LLLT is helpful including 5 randomized double blind studies - 2 studies with so called "laser brush/comb" devices and 3 studies with helmet/cap devices.

The photo here shows a LaserCap. This LLLT device consists of 224 ‘pure’ laser diodes (no LEDs) of 650nm/5mW each. The device is worn every second day for 30 minutes. Several hemet/cap devices now exist and are marketed as FDA cleared LLLT devices.
