WHAT TECHNOLOGY DOES IGROW USE?
iGrow uses both hight quality lasers and LEDs for hair growth treatment. This results in a more effective low-level light therapy (LLLT). The lasers produce a wavelength of 650 to 670 nanometers that have been shown to increase cellular activity within the follicles. The LEDs, with their broader array of light energy, help provide complete scalp coverage. Effective and perfectly safe, this combination of red therapeutic light helps to rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth.
WHAT IS LLLT?
LLLT stands for Low Level Light Therapy. This refers to a therapy that utilises laser or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength. Light sources used for LLLT may include laser and LED devices. Laser devices used for LLLT are also referred to as cold lasers. LLLT devices produce no heat, are safe and cannot burn or injure the skin.
HOW DOES LLLT WORK?
LLLT revitalisation is not superficial; it takes place within the cells of hair follicles. Cells absorb the low level light and become more active. This is known as photo-biostimulation; it’s akin to giving your cells vitamins for a healthy metabolism. Cells then begin to repair and revitalise organically.
ARE THERE ANY CLINICAL STUDIES FOR THIS TREATMENT?
The iGrow Hair Growth System has been verified by thorough research and clinical studies for both men and women. Please visit the official page on its clinical studies here.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF USING LEDS AND LASERS ?
Combining the Lasers and LEDs offers the best benefit of both light sources for men and women with thinning hair. The iGrow Hair Growth System has shown the highest percentage increase in new hair growth of any published clinical studies on light mediated hair growth.
Red light from Laser and LED devices emitting 650-670nm wavelength light can stimulate cells as part of an effective laser hair treatment. The Laser produces a specific wavelength that stimulates the hair follicle cells and also promotes vascular-neogenesis. The LEDs use a broader beam of gentle light energy to cover a wider area of the scalp.
IS WAVELENGTH OF THE LASERS IMPORTANT FOR HAIR GROWTH?
It is important to use light within the recommended wavelength for laser hair treatment. Research studies suggest the most effective wavelength for hair growth is between 650—670nm. This wavelength has the most efficient and effective absorption that is essential for hair growth.
DO ALL LLLT DEVICES USE LEDS AND LASERS TOGETHER?
Most LLLT devices use either LEDs or Lasers. iGrow utilises both high—quality Laser and LED light sources. This form of LLLT is effective for hair growth in men and women with genetic—based hair thinning/loss. Will all laser and light devices provide equivalent results on the scalp? No. Not all devices have the same power and energy output, and therefore will not yield the same results. Many devices only cover a limited area. Most of these devices require the user to manually move a hand—held comb or brush repeatedly over the scalp for 10—20 minutes at a time. This is tiresome and does not provide consistent application of the light. The iGrow combines Laser and LED light in a hands—free automated device that is easy to use, while providing consistent scalp coverage in each 20—25 minute treatment session.
IS IGROW SAFE TO BE USED AT HOME?
The iGrow has been specially designed with safety features for at home, office and travel use, including a safety mechanism controlling both laser and LED devices. In addition, the iGrow is designed so that it can only be turned on when it is firmly placed on your head. The iGrow is a safe and effective laser hair treatment for use at home or while travelling.
