Apira Science, which is a privately held company founded by Braile and two other partners not only offers the iGrow for hair growth, but is preparing to launch their latest device, the iDerma, a hands-free facial mask that utilizes a combination of 142 red (660nm) and infrared LEDs (940 nm) in both narrow and wide angle lenses that reduce fine lines, wrinkles, minimize pores, improve texture and boost overall skin health. iDerma officially launches in January but is available to purchase now on Amazon or directly from their website.
You’d basically be a guinea pig for this product, since there isn’t enough third party feedback on whether this works or not. It might be a better offer if they let you break up the payments into installments, or offer a trial period where you pay a smaller up front cost of around $100 and then pay the balance if you like it after 60 days. But the way they have this set up puts all of the risk on you, even with their guarantee in place. Anytime we see that we think that the company isn’t very confident in their product. We like it better when there is some risk placed on the business so they have a vested interest in bringing a working product to market.
HOW IT WORKS: Our engineers have calibrated the lasers to the optimal wavelength (650nm red light) proven to promote hair growth. The 51 medical-grade lasers and LEDs radiate light energy that is absorbed by the hair follicles to enhance cell metabolism rate and reactivate follicles to stimulate hair growth. Although it can be used alone, physicians often recommend laser therapy to be used along with other solutions (such as minoxidil, finasteride, shampoo or supplements) to accelerate growth and get maximum benefits.
Considering its price which isn’t cheap, you may need to really think a thousand times. However, if you deem it suitable for you and if you think it will help address your hair loss problem, then, the manufacturer will gladly help you make your purchase once your purchase this product as you can always communicate with them for assistance after your purchase.
I purchased the iGrow in June of 2017, have used it 2-3 times a week as directed, every single week since June 2017. It is now March of 2018, and I can't say there is even the slightest of difference in my hair density. If anything, I might have lost more since I purchased the device, but I think it's due to the progression of hair loss and nothing to do with the device, although I still believe the iGrow helmet hasn't made any difference.
Simply select the programme that's most suited to your needs, place the iGrow on your head and let it do its work. iGrow's patented Low Level Light Therapy works directly on the roots of the hair, based on Professor Endre Mester's findings that in the right light, skin cells became healthier and actually grew hair. iGrow has worked on this technology and combined low level laser therapy with red light therapy for the most effective results.
Braile explains, “The differences in the degree of improvement between men and women may be a function of how genetic hair loss presents itself in men versus women. Male pattern baldness is usually located between the top of the ears and the top of the scalp, so men with androgenetic alopecia usually have receding hair lines or a completely bare area on the top of the head, making these baldness patterns difficult to hide. Women, on the other hand, usually keep their hairlines but have diffused thinning throughout the rest of the scalp. This can be far easier to conceal”.
The recommended use for HairMax Ultima 9 is three 10-15 minute sessions per week. That seems like a lot of combing – and you may develop some nicely-toned and muscled arms in the process – but, again, it’s only for three times a week and you can do it in the convenience of your home. So, put on some music, or your favorite television show, and comb away.
