Risks and Side Effects of Low Lever Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Cold Laser Therapy Products

Atre there safety issues with regards to laser combs and other LLLT products to treat hair loss?

Based on all available evidence, there seems to be no safety issues with regards to low level laser therapy products and devices. Although some critics raise the caveat that long term issues are not yet known, LLLT/cold-laser applications have already been in use for more than 30 years with no report of any serious safety issue.

About FDA approvals for laser combs

FDA clearance is usually not required for products that are intended for cosmetic purposes. However, certain manufacturers make specific claims that the laser comb (particularly Hairmax) would promote hair growth in males with certain types of balding.

The company submitted both safety and effectiveness data to obtain FDA clearance. The effectiveness data was obtained from a multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled trial conducted at four sites in the US. FDA "approval" requires a much more stringent process.

Participants in the study used a laer comb or a "sham" (placebo type) device three times a week for 6 months. Based on this limited scale study, FDA clearance was obtained.

The laser comb that that I have used is based on the same principles as the tested comb but with further improved safety power features.
