Who has heard anything about laser hair therapy?

Recommended Posts

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'e heard a lot about it over the years, but nothing good. I would avoid.

 

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 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?

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 didn’t 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 don’t 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 didn’t .. I have diffuse thinning and a full head of hair , a Norwood 1, now I’m a Norwood 2 .. I was hoping it would thicken up my thinning hair n make it thicker , but it didn’t ..

— 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 didn’t penetrate it , instead the laser spread out ,.. so out of that experiment I know for sure it doesn’t work .. because if it can’t penetrate the paper , how can it penetrate into your skin which is much thicker n denser than paper . So the laser light won’t be able to reach your hair follicle which is deeper into the skin .. there’s 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 can’t do that , then it doesn’t 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 ?

I have not seen a single scientific study which proves that laser helps against hairloss.

 

And women do not (!) have thicker and more dense natural heads of hair (as long as their is no hairloss yet).

As far as I know the hairmax laser combe is the only one that is FDA approved for hairloss. If they have FDA approval surely there are studies?

 

I've used the hairmax laser combe twice, each time for over a year at a time and have used it as prescribed. I definitely notice my hair is thicker and I shed less hair. For me it didn't regrow any new hair on my hairline that I lost. I would say they are worth a shot and not to be viewed as if it will be as good as finasteride. You need to really use it for a year to be able to see any difference, I'd also recommend taking good quality photos, I wish I had.

 

As for cost my laser combe is probably one of the cheapest things I've tried. I bought mine second hand on ebay for 100 pounds and I know if I don't want it I can sell it again for about the same amount.

If lasers do have any benefit at all, they still can't be expected to halt hairloss and like the more established treatments (Finasteride, etc.) the laser might work better for some people than others.

 

So basically, what I'm saying is, continued hairloss isn't necessarily proof that lasers don't work.

 

But I still don't think they that they do.

As I said don't expect it to be as good as finasteride and yes you're correct I don't think they work for everyone, to be fair it's the same with all treatments really. I do feel like the laser works for less people though that the big 3. Treating hairloss is about using all you can to fight the issue. All the things you use won't work equally as well as the other. Just because finasteride is the best doesn't mean you shouldn't use something else in a addition or instead even though it doesn't work as well. If it works for you use it, if not move on. Like I said above it's cheap enough to try the laser you just need to decide if you wish to commit the time to it.
