Default Who has heard anything about laser hair therapy?

I found this device called grivamax. It supposes to help you fighting baldness, they gave me a coupon grivamax2018 for a discount. Is it worth buying? It's a great deal $ 500 off, just wondering about the effectiveness of laser therapy. Maybe someone has tried it already? I'm interested to hear your experiences.

If you are going to do a 'cap' - I would do lasercap.com If you want alot of diodes (for all over nearly entire scalp) go with overmachogrande.com helmet.

Cheers!

I had laser therapy for over two years and it didn't do anything.

After that I started finasteride which I responded to fantastically.

There is nothing wrong with trying a hair laser. Many come w/6 month guarantee or money back.

Nothing good huh hair rep guy? Whatever...

Women respond BEST to laser since they usually have hair all over their head and have thicker and more dense natural heads of hair than men - on average.

Even transplant docs advising for laser will tell you the same thing.

If there is evidence that they work then I am happy to see it. I'm not against this sort of treatment or any treatment that works.

Lasers are totally useless. Waste of money. Avoid

Lasers have definitely helped with my severe inflammation and neuropathy in the donor area caused by an awful fue. Dr. Cooley even remarked how improved my condition was after a year of treatment. It can certainly help with healing or thickening, but have never seen any evidence of new regrowth.

I have to agree with Matt here. I've personally not seen any positive results from laser alone (I've had friends/acquaintances/family members used it with varying degrees of hair loss). I haven't seen any female's try it though.

I guess if there is a money back guarantee it can't hurt right?

Default Iíve used it for 6 months

Hi .. I had the capillus laser cap for 6 months .. bought it for $800.. I was hoping it would work , but my hair continued to shed n gotten thinner due to MPB. The laser didnít seem to do much .. So after the 6 month guarantee .. I returned it n got my money back . Minus the $200 restocking fee .. so I got back $600 .. I donít care about the money , it was the waste of time .. during those 6 months I should of been on FDA approved drugs ..like finasteride ..
I would of kept more of my hAir instead of wasting 6 months on trying the laser
Cap n natural supplements .. in theory I thought it would work , since lasers can grow plants , like tomatoes n marijuana etc ..
- I mean I still hope that it would work but out of experience I found that it didnít .. I have diffuse thinning and a full head of hair , a Norwood 1, now Iím a Norwood 2 .. I was hoping it would thicken up my thinning hair n make it thicker , but it didnít ..
ó n I was reading up on a post from Doctor Feller , he has a YouTube video where he experimented with the laser , he put a piece of paper in front of the laser light n the laser didnít penetrate it , instead the laser spread out ,.. so out of that experiment I know for sure it doesnít work .. because if it canít penetrate the paper , how can it penetrate into your skin which is much thicker n denser than paper . So the laser light wonít be able to reach your hair follicle which is deeper into the skin .. thereís no point on the laser touching you hair right ? Since ur hAir is already dead .. it needs to reach the hair follicle for there to be any benefits .. n if it canít do that , then it doesnít work .. simple as that ..
Save ur money n time .. until they can make better lasers that can penetrate through the skin .. what I said makes sense ?
