Laser Phototherapy Hairbrush


From websites:

    Phototherapy Hairbrush

    Employing the same proven photobiostimulation therapy used in scientists' labs and in salons for more than 20 years, this lightweight handheld device helps revitalize tired locks for fuller, more lustrous hair.

    The light energy produced by its safe, low-level laser and four LEDs penetrates scalp tissue to promote increased circulation, resulting in more oxygen and nutrients getting supplied to hair follicles.

    Equally effective on men and women, simply "brushing" for three 15-minute sessions per week promotes thicker, more vibrant hair, with users typically seeing results in 8-16 weeks.

    A built-in timer frees you from tracking session time and automatically shuts off the hairbrush after 15 minutes.

    Two AAA batteries provide convenient cordless operation for up to 6 months.

    The laser and LEDs are rated for 10 years of service.

    8"L x 2"W x 1-1/2"D.




But why pay less?

Heck, if you like you can drop nearly $500 for the same kind of thing.

"Photobiostimulation" for hair regrowth is, of course, not actually "proven" at all. In the USA these devices have, at best, the usual FDA 510(k) approval, meaning they're grandfathered in as being "substantially equivalent" to devices that were on the market before the FDA required proof of efficacy and/or safety.

There is not the slightest reason to believe that shining laser pointers on your head will have any effect whatsoever on your baldness.
