HANDHELD HAIR RESTORATION
Apira Science, Newport Beach, Calif, releases iGrow, a home-use hair-restoration device that uses low-level laser therapy technology to effectively rejuvenate shedding and thinning hair. The iGrow comfortably sits atop the user’s head, providing continuous overall coverage and leaving them completely mobile and free to do other things while receiving treatment. The iGrow even allows for users to listen to music while their hair rejuvenates—it features iPod/MP3 compatibility.
The iGrow features 51 light sources that include 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights to provide full scalp coverage, while combs and other handheld devices only have nine to 15 laser lights. The output from iGrow is equivalent to most in-office clinical hair lasers, according to the company.
