In my opinion, the IGrow Laser is one of the best all around at-home laser devices for hair regrowth. Apira Science, LLC has done a very good job at marketing the device with the real potential of the device and the correct way to use it.
For the money, the IGrow Laser is best laser you can purchase unless you have very fine blond hair. The Igrow Laser is cost effective and is well made. Their customer support is also fantastic.
The Igrow laser has received their 510K FDA Market Clearance recently which makes them a better purchase against the Hairmax Lasercomb devices.
If you have blond hair though, it will not be strong enough. You will need to purchase the LaserCap that is about 10 times as powerful. People with very light hair need more laser energy to get a result. This is due to blond hair reflecting light versus black hair that will attract light. If you have black to light brown hair, the Igrow Laser device will work well.
I do however recommend that every laser unit be used with the right product to get the best result for your individual situation. At Evolution Hair Loss Institute I have put together multiple Igrow packages for different situations.
What used to be a “men’s condition” is now quickly becoming a female epidemic. It is scary to think that you could randomly wake up one day and begin to see more hair on the pillow case and less on your head.
For women losing their hair, it is a serious blow to femininity and the ideal vision of themselves. We are constantly cutting and coloring to make sure our hair looks the best it can. But what if one day the un-thinkable happens… and it falls out and doesn’t grow back?
Female Hair Loss on the Rise
In a recent study by the Dermatology Online Journal, it states that at least 10 percent of pre-menopausal women will experience hair loss and that a staggering 50 percent to 75 percent of women will lose hair after 64 years of age. In a recent report on NBC Online it states these numbers are low and that female hair loss is seriously on the rise.
But why are women losing hair now more than ever? And what can be done about it? After contacting numerous hair loss professionals in the valley, one seemed to have his finger on the pulse of the problem, and this is what he said:
Question: What causes women’s hair loss?
Answer: Female hair loss can be caused by multiple factors, but the most common cause is an underlying genetic pre-disposition to hair loss known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss. Unlike the popular myth that you inherit hair loss from your mother’s father, women can inherit hair loss from either side of the family. This means that women can inherit hair loss from men and vice versa. It is much more common than people know.
There are other factors that can cause hair loss or increase hair loss due to family history. They include stress, lifestyle, diet, thyroid dis-function, fungal infections, scalp parasites, and medications (most common hormone replacement and birth control pills).
Question: How you do know what is causing your hair loss?
Answer: A simple patient history is the easiest way. Many women have blood tests for hormonal issues, thyroid dysfunction, iron levels, and vitamin D deficiency. Unfortunately this rarely produces any other cause other than normal pattern hair loss.
At our clinics we use a video microscope to analyze the condition of the scalp at 50x magnification. At this level we can tell if the client has loss due to stress, diet, infection of the hair follicle, or simple hormonally related hair loss.
Question: Is there hope for women with thinning hair? How do you control it?
Answer: There certainly is. There are so many tools that can be used to control female hair loss and reverse it in many cases. Once you have established the reason for the hair loss and it can be treated with a variety of methods. Unfortunately, most general physicians simply don’t have the time or the knowledge to get a full understanding of why a woman is losing her hair. The female patient is then left combing the internet for solutions that rarely leads to any real answer.
Questions: What do your clinics use to help women with thinning hair?
Answer: Depending on the reason for the loss, the treatment protocol will vary. Usually though for common female pattern hair loss the protocol is relatively similar. We a have a 9 month program that includes twice weekly office visits for cool light laser treatments for the scalp. This stimulates cell regeneration and is already approved to promote thicker hair.
Our program also includes topical pharmaceuticals, hormone therapy balancing cream, nutritional supplementation, holistic hair care products, and topical scalp serums. This is most aggressive treatment that we offer, but it works. When you use everything together the way that our program does, you are bound to get results.
Question: What advice would you give a woman who is dealing with this problem?
Find the source of the problem as quickly as possible and treat that problem. Don’t try to treat it yourself because you are wasting time that could be spent growing hair back. I obviously would recommend to call us and then come to the clinic for a consultation. Worst case scenario, you can stop the progression of the loss. Best case, we can dramatically reverse your hair loss and regrow hair.
We have had numerous cases where a woman was wearing a wig or extensions when they started the treatment. Then 9 months later they were able to remove their wig permanently or stop getting extensions because their hair had gained so much volume and density.
Question: Is there maintenance required?
Answer: 99% yes. I usually tell people it’s like brushing your teeth. If you don’t brush them and go to the dentist, your teeth will rot and fall out. The same goes for your hair. If you have a genetic hair loss problem, you have two options; one- you can treat the problem long term, or two- let your hair fall out and go bald. Clearly our clients choose hair.

Surgical Hair Restoration or hair transplantation is an irreversible surgical procedure. In Phoenix Arizona there are many physicians to choose from. Hair restoration surgery has risks and rewards that you should be aware of before you spend thousands of dollars and may not happy with the appearance post treatment. You must choose your physician or treatment wisely and do your research. Learn about Hair Restoration Surgery Alternatives.
Who should NOT get Surgical Hair Restoration?
Women are usually not good candidates for surgical hair transplantation due to how women lose hair. Women lose hair in a diffuse pattern which makes the transplanted hair susceptible to loss after transplantation. Only women over the age of 45 years of age and with isolated small areas of baldness should get a hair transplant. Female Hair Loss Treatment
Young men under the age of 25
Men under the age 25 are also usually not a good candidates for hair transplantation because it’s unclear how bald he may become later in life. The younger a man is when he begins to lose hair, usually the greater the area of loss down the road. This could be problematic when a young man gets a hair transplant because the area that is covered by a transplant or multiple hair restoration surgeries will most likely continue to bald. If this happens, it will result in an unnatural appearance that looks “puggy” or future additional balding areas will not be able to covered by additional hair transplants because the donor area has already been used up.
Who should get Hair Transplantation?
Men over the age of 30 that have no possibility of hair regrowth in a given area of the scalp are good candidates for hair restoration. Additionally the best candidates are:
- Men who have a receding hair line
- Men who are unwilling to use products daily to maintain their hair
- Men who lost hair over a long period of time
- Men who have lighter hair
Men over the age of 30 who meet the above criteria could be a good candidate for hair restoration. It is wise to research your alternatives. Now with new hair loss treatments, you can actually regrow hair using a multi therapy hair loss treatment program. Do your research before making any surgical decision that is irreversible.
Phoenix Hair Restoration Alternatives
For those people who do not want surgery or who are not a candidate for hair restoration surgery in Phoenix AZ have a powerful treatment option that could stop your hair loss and reverse thinning hair. This is ideal for the people listed above that do have hair transplant surgery as an option.

Hair Regrowth Injections GDE6GUHECQ84 a.k.a. mesotherapy has received a lot of publicity in the media and internet about its possible role in androgenetic alopecia. However, the subject is controversial in view of lack of documented evidence. This article provides a critical commentary on the use of mesotherapy in the management of androgenetic alopecia.
Mesotherapy, a technique involving injections of medications directly into the skin, was first described by a French physician, Dr. Michel Pistor. He first administered procaine intravenously to treat an asthmatic patient and found that the patient’s hearing improved. He then started experimenting on superficial injections of procaine for various indications and coined the term “mesotherapy” in 1976. It has been subsequently tried for treatment of many other conditions such as joint pain, eczema and tinnitus.[2,3] The term mesotherapy was coined to denote “treatment of the mesoderm”.
Hair Regrowth Injections have recently attracted interest, curiosity and publicity as a treatment modality for several cosmetic indications such as cellulite, aging skin and body contouring.[5–8] There have been claims and reports in internet sites and lay press about its use in management of hairloss too. In India, several esthetic, beauty and hair clinics (some of which are run by nonprofessionals) have advertised this modality extensively in lay press, as a safe and effective remedy for androgenetic alopecia, leading to many patients seeking this treatment. Dermatologists are frequently sought opinion as to the efficacy of such treatments. A critical analysis is therefore necessary to ascertain the role of this treatment in pattern hairloss, if any.
What strikes the author while searching for documented material on the subject, is the near total lack of documented data about all aspects of the treatment — mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, therapeutic regimes, etc., in standard medical journals. Inhouse publications and company brochures suggest that injections of “cocktails” of natural plant extracts, homoeopathic agents, vasodilators, finasteride and minoxidil and vitamins are carried out with a mesogun once in 2—4 weeks. Of these, only minoxidil and finasteride have an established role in the management of pattern hairloss. Both the mechanism of action and the efficacy of other agents are not established and are doubtful.
It is interesting to note that while medline search for key words “mesotherapy” and “hairloss” reveals only two results, a similar search in google reveals 209,000 results!!! Also, the two results on medline search are reports of side effects following the use of mesotherapy for hairloss! One report documented the development of alopecia in two patients following the use of mesotherapy for hairloss. Histopathologic features showed an almost complete absence of terminal anagen hair follicles and a marked increase in the number of telogen germinal units and catagen follicles, suggesting acute noncicatricial alopecia similar to anagen effluvium. The pathogenesis of hair loss in both the cases was difficult to establish. The other article reports the development of multiple abscesses, thereby suggesting that the treatment could have serious adverse effects.
It is also relevant to note here that Federal drug administration (FDA), USA, has not approved this method of treatment for any indication. The CDC has recommended that “providers should adhere to recommend standard precautions, follow safe-injection practices with appropriate aseptic techniques, and inject only FDA approved products that are prepared following guidelines to ensure sterility as described in the FDA’s good manufacturing practices.”
Further, a recent publication of guidelines on esthetic practices in Singapore listed mesotherapy as a List B procedure (List B procedure indicates procedures with low or very low evidence or local medical expert consensus that procedure is neither well-established nor acceptable.)
In view of these data, the current position on the use of mesotherapy in pattern hairloss can be summarized as follows. GDE6GUHECQ84
Data on its safety and efficacy in pattern hairloss have not been adequately and critically evaluated and documented in proper, peer-reviewed clinical trials.
Data evaluating the rationale and pharmacology of the combination of herbal and allopathic medicines used are not adequate. There are no clear-cut guidelines on the dosage and efficacy of the products.
Further, mesotherapy is not entirely a safe technique as publicized in lay media and can give rise to complications, as stated earlier.
Routine use of the technique is therefore not justified. Well-designed controlled scientific studies are required to substantiate the claims of effectiveness of these products. Regulatory authorities and associations have a role to play in ensuring such studies. What is also needed is proper public health education to ensure quality, ethical management and prevention of commercial exploitation of patients.

I have seen the LaserCap on the open market now for about 18 months. I am always sceptical of new devices. I have been in the Laser Hair Therapy industry since 2002 and have seen so many devices come and go. If I haven't seen it work for someone first hand, usually I will write it off.
The LaserCap is unique though for one reason. It is the most powerful at home device available to date. After testing and being involved in many clinical studies for laser hair therapy, I know that more power is not necessarily a good thing. More power can lead to overstimulation and aggravation of scalp conditions including psoriasis and fungal infections. Yet, these devices are available and need to be used under the watchful eye of an experienced practitioner.
Why the LaserCap may be better for you than any other at home device:
The LaserCap has 224 pulsed direct light diodes. For about 40% of the people losing their hair, this may be the best at home laser available.
LaserCap users should have:
- Fine hair
- Light or natural blond Hair
- Extremely Thin Hair
If you have thick, black, coarse hair. You should NOT use the LaserCap.
The reason for this is that too much laser can cause rapid shedding. People with thick coarse hair attract more light to the follicle. Think of the hair like a lightning rod. Each rod will attract light to the root of the follicle and delivery the energy. When the right amount of energy is delivered, the hair will grow more effectively. If too much energy is delivered, the hair may shed or slow its growth. This is the case in laser hair removal. High amounts of laser are delivered to the follicle and the hair sheds and grows back finer.
Now, people who have fine, thin, or light hair, attract less light to their hair follicles. This is due to the fact that light hair will reflect some light and fine hair is not as dense and needs more laser stimulation to grow.
For these people, the LaseCap is most likely the best chance at successful laser treatment from home. Below you will see an example of hair types that will benefit from the LaserCap.
Apply your $500 LaserCap product credit below or call 480-222-4247.
For the hair types mentioned above, I am now recommending the LaserCap for home use.
The LaserCap should be used as follows:
- Weeks 0-4: 5 mins 2 x per week
- Month 2: 6 mins 2 x per week
- Month 3: 7 mins 2 x per week
- Month 4: 8 mins 2 x per week
- Month 5: 9 mins 2 x per week
- Month 6: 10 mins 2 x per week
- Month 7-12: you may increase if needed to 15 mins 2 x per week
If you have seen rapid regrowth by the end of month 6, do not increase the laser duration. Maintain the 10 minutes 2 x per week. This mean that you have responded well to lower intensity light and do not need to increase it. If you increase the laser duration after regrowing alot of hair, you risk overstimulation. For more personalized instruction you can always call our main office at 480-222-4247 and ask our advice.

I found this independant blogger video on youtube.
Also, Dr Bauman in Boca Raton Florida has featured the LaserCap on a Florida New program.
Evolution Hair Centers has been using the iGrow Laser in our clinics now for Outpatient use and for those who are post-treatment since March of 2011.
In last year, I have seen the device work very well for those people who have used it. The device holds up under normal wear-and-tear and does not have the electrical problems that I have seen with similar devices.
Because the iGrow Laser has 27 laser diodes and 30 LEDs, the device gives good hands free coverage of the the top of the scalp that can be used consistently from home twice weekly for 20 minutes.
I have seen it work especially well for females in the the early stages of the thinning. Females seems to do better with the iGrow Laser because they are not experiencing extreme DHT suppression of the hair follicles as men do. Women can use the iGrow Laser with a herbal progesterone cream to create an excellent result because they are counter acting testosterone and stimulation the hair follicles with Laser Light simultaneously.
It has even better results when used with a full program that includes topical Minoxidil, vitamins, and herbal progesterone cream as with our Women's Extreme Hair Loss Treatment Kit.
For a personalized consultation on this matter call 480-222-4247 to find out if this is right for you. Otherwise, you can see our iGrow Packages at our online store.
Perfect Image Minoxidil had a good thing going for awhile. They were selling 15% Minoxidil with Azelaic acid, among other topical minoxidil formulas, over the counter.
While they did have a big following, I believe that they were eventually shut down for destributing their minoxidil products without a physician's prescription.
In the US, all minoxidil products formulated with more than 5% minoxidil require a physician's presciption. Perfect Image had been selling many formulas over 5% for years on Amazon and other internet resellers.
Laser Hair Therapy can be greatly enhanced with use of 5% Minoxidil compounded with natural topical anti-inflammatories.
Due to Minoxidil’s vasodilatation properties, it can perfect enhancement to Low Level Laser Therapy. Minoxidil is responsible for expanding and reinforcing blood vessels and capillaries that feed the hair follicle. When increased nutrients from the blood are feeding the scalp, the treated hair follicles are forced into the growth phase of the hair cycle and lead to longer fuller hair. This will create a minor increase in hair density and will act as a substantially better starting point for laser hair treatments.
When the hair follicle is already in the growth phase, laser hair therapy will able to add its benefits on top of the benefits from Minoxidil. This actually creates a multiplying effect to each product so that you can get up to 4 times the result of using laser or Minoxidil alone.
Low level laser therapy for hair growth also increases blood flow to the scalp and accelerates cell regeneration. When used in conjunction with Minoxidil, these actions strengthen the entire vascular system of the scalp. Capillaries are expanded with Minoxidil and strengthened and expanded further with laser.
Other topical ingredients further enhance treatment for male and female pattern hair loss suffers. These following ingredients can improve results by another multiplier because it removed some of the other reason for hair loss
Azelaic Acid-is useful as a hair growth stimulant. A research report by Stamatiadis in 1988 suggested that azelaic acid (and combinations of it, with zinc ion and vitamin B6) was a strong DHT inhibitor. Di-hydro-testosterone or DHT has been found to be the cause of male and female pattern hair loss.
Retinoic Acid- also called tretinoin, is the acidified form of vitamin A. Retinoic acid is used to remove fine skin wrinkles and roughness. It works as a natural chemical peel, enabling better penetration of minoxidil into the scalp and speeding the cell regeneration process.
Caffeinated Green Tea Extract- Green tea contains high levels of substances called catechin polyphenols, known to possess strong antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antitumorigenic, and even antibiotic properties. Recent study results have found that caffeine in topical formulas helps to regulate the effects of testosterone levels. 
Licorice Root Extract- Licorice is used to treat general skin problems. It is known to be healing and soothing to dry and irritated skin. It is particularly used as a facial oil for acne to expedite healing. Licorice root is also another herb that prevents hair loss and further damage to the hair.
B5- is the only vitamin (Vitamin B5) known to penetrate the hair shaft. It has historically been used to build healthy follicles and reduce graying.
Aloe- Aloe Vera Gel is rich in mucupolysaccharides which provide a natural and anti-inflammatory effect.
