So to sum it all up, there are A LOT of variables that may have an influence on whether or not this product (or others like it) will work for you. The research out there (once again look through pubmed.com) shows that this kind of therapy undoubtedly works…so bottom line: yes, it does work. Will it work for you? Possibly. But there’s also a chance that it will not work for you. You have to try it out on your own.

I have been using iRestore for 6 weeks. I am seeing a modest amount of improvement at this point. I am not sure if it is new hair or just healthier existing hair. It is too early to expect significant growth or true "restoration". It is about on par with what my expectations were (my assumption going in was that it would be 4-5 months before I would notice any real improvement). I will report back again then.
The treatment protocol we used in both of the iGrow clinical trials was 25 minutes every other day for 4-6 months, and once per week thereafter is usually enough to continue energizing the follicles as well as maintain what has grown thus far. There is really no harm using it more often, but since it doesn't seem to improve results the main reason people choose to do so is simply because it's easier for them to get in a "routine".
I purchased this product because there is research on NCBI that indicates it's efficacy. I noticed immediately, that the light, which is a mixture of laser and LED , had a warming effect on my scalp. After the first use I noticed my scalp burned a little. Within a week, I noticed my hair felt thicker but no visible improvements to the thinning areas. I have always had thin hair, but I am a male, 33 y/o and started to notice early stages of male pattern baldness about 2 years ago. It had reached the point where it was impossible to hide. The hairs were getting smaller and becoming transparent. I was very disheartened, and so in an act of faith (in science), after doing a little research, I decided to buy this device. I am using this product in conjunction with Rogain and Bosley Revive, which I was using before I started the iRestore for years. I saw this as the last hope for my hair. I can't take Propecia because it gave me unbearable side effects. This device has no side effects, so it's safe.
iRestore is engineered to be lightweight, comfortable, and durable. The hands-free design allows you to go about your day uninterrupted, so you can save time and focus on the important things in your life. iRestore provides a safe, drug-free way to experience hair regrowth without the frustration of negative side effects. Although individual results may vary, you can expect to see visible growth in as little as 3 to 6 months.
The helmet contains 51 medical-grade lasers and red LED lights that emit at a wavelength of 650nm. All you need to do is wear it for 25 minutes every other day. You can do other activities while you wait for the session to finish. iRestore says it usually takes 12 to 24 weeks to see a reduction in hair loss. Then you’ll see thicker hair within 5 to 6 months.
The second one appeared in the peer-review medical journal, The International Journal of Trichology in August 2014. The article provides photographic evidence of the efficacy of the HairMax LaserComb used on subjects treated for at least 9 months for drugs and were either no longer responding or were intolerant of these treatments. The HairMax LaserComb was added to treatments with either with minoxidil and/or finasteride regimens, or used in place of these treatment. Almost 90% of patients treated with drugs and the HairMax LaserComb had significant results, and 100% of those patients treated with the device in place of the drugs, showed significant results.
