Choose only lasers, not LEDs.


LEDs are often used by other brands as a cheaper alternative for light-based treatments. However, LEDs are best for treating conditions on the surface of the skin – you need the power of lasers to penetrate down to the hair follicles.


Lasers not only provide stronger, more focused and intense light energy, they are specific in the colour of light. All of the laser energy is concentrated into a single wavelength (colour) of light, whereas LED light energy is dispersed into various wavelengths.


FDA cleared laser devices

There are only 3 treatments for hereditary hair loss that are backed by the FDA.


Safe, easy and effective, low-level lasers deliver light energy directly to the scalp through a process known as photobiostimulation. The laser light increases the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel of the living cells within the follicle. ATP is integral to the function of the cell as an “energy transporter”. It promotes an increase in cellular activity, which helps create an optimal environment for hair growth. In addition, the energy from laser light may increase blood flow and circulation in the scalp. This leads to healthier hair follicles and helps remove harmful elements such as dihydrotesterone (DHT), the hormone responsible for hair loss.


Laser treatments infuse hair follicles with the energy needed to stimulate growth factors, reverse the thinning process, extend the growth phase, help restore a healthy hair cycle and regrow hair. No drug-related side effects.


Minoxidil (Rogaine) is topical drug that is applied to the scalp twice a day. About one-quarter of men and one-fifth of women who use minoxidil experience some hair regrowth, which may take 4 to 6 months. Side effects include dryness and irritation of the scalp. In women it may cause facial hair to grow. Topical drug, ongoing monthly refills required.


Oral finasteride (Propecia) is an FDA-approved drug for baldness. Taken once daily, finasteride blocks the formation of the hormone DHT, which is responsible for shrinking hair follicles. Side effects may lead to diminished libido and sexual dysfunction. Oral drug, prescription and monthly refills required.


Clinical trials of HairMax laser devices were compared to the results of clinical trials with minoxidil and finasteride and were found to be equivalent. (Clinical paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Practice).
