    Its odd that some people use lasers to remove hair and others use them to promote hair... but apparently the hair growth ones use a different "laser wavelength"; one that supposedly promotes rather than kills the hair folicle.

    Not really. There are different kinds of laser being used for different purposes ranging from making accurate cuts in thick sheets of steel to helping wounds heal.

    Maybe the laser creates Vitamin D just like Sun Light, and it is well known that Vitamin D is good for hair. That maybe the reason why some people claim LaserComb to be useful.

    Maybe. Who knows? Who knows why women respond to laser better than men? We may never know.

    If there is bona fide scientific evidence with proper controls published in a peer-reviewed journal then no red flag. Use it. Hairmax Lasercomb has thus far not met with these requirements.

    True. Why is it that most women have benefited from laser treatment versus men?

    The overall view looking at those is for most people they seem to make little or no difference, but some comment that the amount of shedding lessens.

    There are no known side effects according to the on-line blurb.


    Those amazon review comments are probably from the manufactures themselves Lol

    I can only guess. We can start with the general attitudes between men and women about treating hair loss. From reading this forum, it is rather obvious that most men feel that if a treatment does not give them all of their hair back - and do so very quickly, the treatment does not work. A woman will take any help she can get - no matter how big or how small the improvement might be. Most women recognize that every little bit helps. Most men want all or nothing. Lexington performed seven studies. In the study that Lexington submitted to the FDA for men's hair loss, Lexington showed that terminal hair count increased by 21 hairs per square centimeter with LLLT. That's not a lot. That's actually just barely cosmetically significant - but every little bit helps. The study that Lexington submitted to get clearance for treating women's hair loss had a little bit better increase in terminal hairs - but not a lot more. However, every little bit helps.

    Are you kidding me? Its a lot of hair IMO! Its interesting to note that you typically lose 50% of your hair before you notice the thinning, so even if you have a density of 45 hairs/cm2, you are doing pretty well. Now 21% is nearly half of that!

    They do not say 21% and neither did I. They said 21 hairs per square centimeter. Those two things are not the same - and 21 hairs per square centimeter is actually not very much at all considering how many hairs you have per square centimeter before hair loss moves in and ruins your life.
