Questions About LLLT
LLLT is an acronym for Low-Level Laser Therapy. This refers to a therapy that utilizes laser and or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength. Light sources used for LLLT may include Laser and LED devices. Laser devices used for LLLT are also referred to as cold lasers. LLLT devices produce no heat, are safe to use and will not burn or injure the skin.
Multiple sites Double Blind Independent Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of Low—Level Laser Therapy in promoting hair re-growth in men and women with androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness associated with hereditary hair loss. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but the most recent research has identified that LLLT is absorbed into the hair growing cells in the follicle tubes, triggering enhanced cellular activity. In other words, the theory is that LLLT stimulates ageing cells to become more active, thereby increasing their effectiveness in hair re-growth.
Yes! Please see our page on clinical studies, here.
Yes, Medical Doctors, including Dermatologists, in the United States, Europe and Asia prescribe the iGrow® for use with male and female patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia. (Genetic Hair loss)
Red light from Laser and LED devices emitting a wavelength of 650—670nm light can stimulate hair growing cells within the follicle, as part of an effective LLLT hair treatment. The Laser light produces a specific wavelength that is believed to stimulate the hair follicle cells. The LED light uses a broader beam of gentle light energy to cover a wider area of the scalp. Combining the Lasers and LEDs offers the benefit of both light sources for men and women with androgenetic alopecia (thinning hair). But the proof is in the results. The iGrow Hair Growth System has shown the Highest Percentage Increase in New Hair Re-Growth of any published clinical studies on Laser Light-mediated hair growth.
It is important to use light within the recommended wavelength for Laser Hair Re-Growth Treatment. Research studies suggest the most effective wavelength for hair growth is between 650—670nm. This wavelength has the most efficient and effective absorption that is essential for hair growth.
Most LLLT devices use either LEDs or Lasers. The iGrow® utilizes both high—quality Laser and LED light sources. This form of LLLT is effective for hair regrowth in men and women with genetic-based hair thinning/loss. WILL ALL LASER and LIGHT DEVICE'S PROVIDE EQUIVALENT RESULT'S ON THE SCALP? NO!. Not all devices have the same power and energy output, and therefore will not yield the same results. Many devices only cover a limited area. Most of these devices require the user to manually move by hand a handheld comb or brush repeatedly over the scalp for 10-20 minutes at a time. This is both tiresome and does not provide the all-important consistent application of the light. The iGrow® combines Laser and LED light in a hands-free automated device that is easy to use, while providing consistent scalp coverage, with the Lasers and LED light sources at a specifically recommended distance from the scalp, in each 20-25 minute treatment session.
