Beware and do in-depth research before choosing a "so called" laser device.

LASER (wave length 650 nm, 5 mw) has been approved for safety as well as efficacy. However, patients wonder about difference in price of various laser devices. That is happening because some companies are passing off cheap LED lights.

e.g. if there is a helmet with 80 lasers.



To cut cost, some companies may install e.g. 60 LED & 20 lasers and sell at a fraction of cost.



LEDs are for Diwali/Christmas decorations. Do not fool people.

I have been researching LED treatments for quite sometime now. It seems that there are nothing but inconclusive studies out there, and most of them state that it is not an effective nor viable hair loss treatment.

There was quite a stir in the hair loss communities some years back around some promising studies in regard to lasers. Lots of folks used them. I personally built my own device and used it for 2 years.

I had no noticeable success with lasers nor did I ever see a credible posts from anyone who did.

Lots of money to be made selling laser devices so folks are very passionate. But if you do your research on results going back may years, you will be disappointed.

Thanks for sharing your experience and providing some logic.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

there are many serious scientific studies using light therapy to prevent cell death by increasing ATP production -look it up online its used to cure things like trumatic brain injury, skin damage etc.. but it has to be powerful enough

its just photons, lasers or led are the same at the end if the power is the same and now you can have a 20W LED in 850 nm with an optical power of about 2W which is equivalent to a 2000MW laser at a fraction of the price, and with no risks of damage to the eyes because LED are unfocused by nature.

the probelm is that hair is opaque and wont let light pass through so its not going to work if you have hair, only for a very short haircut situation and then its not going to regrow anything but only help reduce cell death or promote better growth in a mild manner but with no running costs and no side effects as an addition a proven regimen that is

OMG!
Just went through your regime.
You are still taking those outdated, harmful medicines.
The MNCs earned profit from unsuspecting and unaware patients like you to maximize their profits (by the way if you are in Canada) you should know that the class section lawsuit is being filed there as The Post-Finasteride Syndrome.
Please go through the following link as proof.
