The authors wished to confirm the efficacy of low level laser therapy (LLLT) using a HairMax LaserComb for the stimulation of hair growth and also to determine what effect LLLT with this device had on the tensile strength of hair. Thirty-five patients, 28 males and 7 females, with androgenetic alopecia (AGA) underwent treatment for a six-month period. Both the hair counts and tensile strength of the hair were affected very beneficially in both sexes in the temporal and vertex regions, with the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Low‐level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) for treatment of hair loss
TLDR
The evidence for low‐level laser therapy applied to the scalp as a treatment for hair loss is surveyed and possible mechanisms of actions are discussed.
Clinical evaluation of a novel fractional radiofrequency based device for hair growth stimulation
TLDR
The HairLux device is effective and safe for hair growth stimulation in AGA and demonstrates less hair shedding, fuller hair, and faster hair growth.

TLDR
This pilot study showed that a 1,550‐nm fractional erbium‐glass laser might induce hair growth, but more intensive studies are required to clarify the clinical applications of this treatment.

TLDR
LLLT may be a promising treatment option for patients who do not respond to either finasteride or minoxidil, and whoDo not want to undergo hair transplantation, and this technology appears to work better for some people than for others.
Low level laser therapy and hair regrowth: an evidence-based review
TLDR
It is found that the FDA-cleared LLLT devices are both safe and effective in patients with MPHL and FPHL who did not respond or were not tolerant to standard treatments.
The current role of laser/light sources in the treatment of male and female pattern hair loss
TLDR
The authors believe that, while seemingly safe, there are no controlled, peer‐reviewed studies validating current devices for hair loss and that all patients should be medically evaluated for any hair loss by a physician specialist to rule out other underlying medical conditions or the etiology of hair loss.
The Effect of One Session Low Level Laser Therapy of Extracted Follicular Units on the Outcome of Hair Transplantation.
TLDR
One session of LLL irradiation has no significant effect on the outcome of transplanted hair follicles in patients with androgenic alopecia.
Photobiomodulation and Hair Growth
TLDR
As photobiomodulation continues to emerge as a treatment modality for androgenetic alopecia, additional information on the most effective light sources, precise light wavelength, treatment schedule, and effectiveness on various hair diseases is still needed.
The growth of human scalp hair in females using visible red light laser and LED sources
Low level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) has been demonstrated to promote hair growth in males. A double‐blind randomized controlled trial was undertaken to define the safety and physiologic effects of
