FDA Approves laser for hair growth
In January 2007 the FDA cleared the first and only device in history to re-grow hair, the HairMax LaserComb . The report stated:
- Effective on 93% of male subjects between 30-60 years of age
- Grew an average of 19 new hairs per centimeter
- Results were obtained in 6 months.
The HairMax LaserComb is an over-the-counter medical device and can not be used in a salon.
Cosmetic lasers are not medical devices, and therefore, we do not claim that they make physiological changes in the body, i.e, grow hair
Cosmetic lasers can be used in the salon to improve the appearance of the hair by creating a fuller, thicker look and feel. Hair Growth Salon Lasers can be used in salons and have 5 to 10 times more of the same laser diodes than the model used in the FDA study. To see our complete line of Cosmetic Lasers visit our Products Page.
Our professional cosmetic salon lasers, designed especially for salons, have 50 to 150 high quality laser diodes compared to the 9 used in the HairMax Lasercomb FDA study.
February 2010 the FDA cleared a new hood laser for hair growth, the MEP-90 Hair Growth Stimulation System. The FDA report stated:
- After 10 weeks, 92% of the female subjects demonstrated an increased hair count.
- After 18 weeks, 97% of the female subjects demonstrated an increased hair count.
- After 18 weeks, 98% of the female subjects indicated a medically significant stabilization of their rate of hair loss.
The MEP-90 is a medical device and can not be used in a hair salon clinic, however our units are suitable for salon applications.
