Hairmax Professional Laserband

The US FDA approved Hairmax laserband is an improvement of the popular Hairmax laser comb. The laserband is curved like a hairband for ease and speed of treatment. It has 82 medical grade lasers to stimulate hair growth and promote scalp health. Its main advantage is the patented comb-like teeth on the outer edge. These teeth help to spread the hair follicles so that maximum laser light energy can reach the scalp and follicle roots. You simply “comb” the laserband starting at the front of your hairline. A vibration prompts you to move every 10 seconds and you work your way to the back of the scalp. It takes only 3 minutes to complete 1 treatment. It can be used on damp or dry hair. 

You should use the Hairmax laserband on alternate days for the best results. Using it more often does not improve the results. It is wireless, so you have the freedom to use it anywhere you like. It is best used for mild to moderate hair loss, or in combination with other treatments that our doctor will recommend. But speak to our staff or doctor to find out if you are suitable for this treatment.

iGrow

The iGrow laser helmet is another low level laser device to treat hair loss. For patients with mild to moderate hair loss, this is a cost effective, convenient handsfree treatment that can be used in the comfort of your own home or office.

iGrow laser therapy (laser hair treatment) has 51 proprietary dual laser light and LED design. A study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, the iGrow improved hair growth in men by up to 35% and up to 37% in women suffering from androgenetic alopecia. It is used 3 times a week, 20 minutes each time for at least 6 months. Both men and women can benefit, be it for maintenance of hair volume, or to stimulate hair growth.

Which should I use? iGrow or Hairmax? The choice is entirely up to you!

Very often, our patients ask what is the difference between the iGrow and the Hairmax laser comb. They are both low level hair laser devices designed to stimulate hair growth and are high quality products with FDA endorsement. The main difference is that the iGrow is a hands-free device but it is slightly bulkier, takes 20 minutes per treatment session and you need to plug the device into a power source. 

The Hairmax laserband is wireless, compact and easier to bring on overseas trips. It takes a shorter time of 3 minutes per session versus 20 minutes with iGrow helmet. They are both just as effective as long as you use them as prescribed.
