The helmet for the treatment of baldness through lasers, has been developed for years and has just received the approval of the FDA, the US agency that regulates everything related to food, drugs and bald.
It is used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, a disease that causes male pattern baldness but also affects women on a smaller scale. It may begin to appear in late adolescence and affects more than half of men over 50 years of age. In women it is most common after menopause.
The helmet uses 51 low-intensity red lasers and LEDs to essentially re-energize hair follicle cells. It has been shown to stimulate hair growth considerably after 16 weeks of treatment.
It was specifically approved for the treatment of baldness in men with androgenetic alopecia and prescription only, but the manufacturer’s CEO said in an interview that the company is working to achieve extend approval for use by women.
The use of the helmet has no side effects and comes with headphones that allow you to listen to music while it is being used.
