Apira Science (Boca Raton, FL) received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration to offer its iGrow hair growth system over-the-counter. The device illuminates the scalp with red light using lasers and LEDs built into the helmet. It’s intended to be used at home three to four times a week for a period of about 25 minutes. Results, if it works for you, should be expected in four to six months.
The helmet has a pair of headphones built-in for listening to music or audio books while hiding what you’re doing from people that might get the wrong idea.
From the announcement:
The iGrow Hair Growth System can increase hair counts by 35 percent in just 16 weeks of therapy, and now men can easily regrow thicker, fuller, and healthier hair without a prescription from their doctors. The device offers a convenient, cost-effective, and clinically proven solution for androgenetic alopecia—patterned baldness—an ailment affecting more than 70 percent of American men. Unlike pharmaceuticals, topicals, and pills used to treat hair loss, the iGrow’s non-invasive LLLT technology has no side effects. With consistent use, men with varying types and degrees of hair thinning and hair loss can experience dramatic results.
In the clinical study, which was awarded the Best Overall Experimental and Translational Research Award by The American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc. (ASLMS), the iGrow re-grew hair 10 weeks faster than leading hand-held laser combs and brushes.
