Hair restoration therapies have become increasingly popular in recent years, but the treatments are often prohibitively expensive. Newport Beach, CA based Apira Science, Inc. has just announced the launch of its iGrow system, which it claims will significantly reduce the cost of hair restoration treatment. The iGrow consists of a helmet with laser and LED diodes which deliver low level laser therapy to the scalp, and that supposedly allows patients to regrow their hair at home. Paint us skeptical, but what do we know? Apira claims that results can be realized with 12 weeks of use, and recommends that patients use the helmet for 24 weeks for best results.
From the product page:
The iGrow features 51 light sources that include 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights to provide full scalp coverage, while combs and other hand held devices only have 9-15 laser lights. The output from iGrow is equivalent to most in-office clinical hair lasers. Hundreds of clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of low level laser therapy (LLLT) on various conditions including hair loss, carpal tunnel syndrome and acne. “LLLT is an amazing, proven technology that can rejuvenate hair and even delay the onset of thinning hair,” noted Nicholas Brox, CEO for Apira. “We have seen first-hand just how effective it is with our Revage670, and we are excited to make this same technology available to the home consumer.”
