Hair loss: The hairmax lasercomb produces nine laser beams which generate columnated, coherent visible light in the red spectrum. Laser light in the red spectrum and with the appropriate power output has been clinically proven to be beneficial for haiti loss. Rogaine (minoxidil) for men and the oral medication Propecia are more effective than the lasercomb.

How about the never products like laser cap that have much more power than the comb........Does the cap work better than the comb?

Not really: I know the laser comb has some sort of clinical evidence that it works, but every one of my patients who has tried it has told me nothing has happened. Your dermatologist can prescribe a tablet that actually works.

LLLT work on some: no guarantee on who. but typically the earlier you treat the better, and it is a lifelong commitment, so if it works you need to keep using it. red is best, and the question is the energy provided and for how long
