Low Level Laser Light for LPP – UPDATE

Wednesday, 1 August 2018

I’ve been in touch with the Spanish authors of the paper on using laser devices for LPP (see previous post) and the US makers of Hairmax laserband. The Spanish device used in the trial is not available in the UK. If you are using the Hairmax Laserband 82, available from the shop on this site, you would need to use for 12 minutes in each area on a daily basis to achieve a similar energy level as the cap design that they used. This is obviously a lot more than the recommendation for pattern hair loss, but you could cover the whole of the head in half an hour. It’s important to note that the benefits were only seen at 6 months and it is likely you will need to continue with this device, but it may be possible to decrease the frequency after 6 months. I would be interested in getting real world experience so please get in touch if you find these devices useful.
