I did receive an email from the PR folks for iRestore saying that they could send me their special shampoo and hair serum to try too. I declined that offer because I want to review the iRestore by itself. They also said that it might take as long as 24 weeks to notice positive changes. That differs from the information that came with the iRestore which says it takes 16 weeks. Right now I’m about halfway through the 16 week period. I’ll have another update in a couple weeks.

I just started with the igrow. I have hair loss due to taking accutane(isotretinoin). It started after taking it and has gotten progressively worse. After being off for two years I continue to loose a lot of hair. I am near balding on top my head with a receded hairline. Hair loss doesn’t run in my family until late 40’s and early 50’s. Whether my hair loss is just drug induced, or maybe accutane just sped up my genetic hair loss I was destined to have at a much later time, I will bookmark this site and try to update you guys if I have any results at a later time.
Thousands of people have successfully used the iGrow but, like diets and exercise programs, it's simply impossible to predict individual effectiveness until tried for 4-6 months. That's why iGrows purchased directly from us come with a Satisfaction Guarantee- so people can try it for a full 6 months and, if not effective for them, return it for a refund.
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.
Our verdict? Which method of laser treatment you choose takes a few things into consideration – price, convenience and, of course, effectiveness. You’ll spend more for a laser helmet (or cap) but you get a more powerful treatment. A comb treatment only takes several minutes and many are cordless to provide supreme convenience. But if more power truly leads to better results – as many experts suggest – then a laser helmet provides a better overall treatment option, if you’re willing to spend the money.
I couldn’t be happier with my results from using both the iGrow and iDerma. My hairline has grown back while the overall health of my hair has improved and I feel as though I am on my way back to having the hair I had a few months before all of the stress. As for my skin, it looks younger, less ruddy, and with iDerma's hands free feature that treats the whole face in 8 minutes it is much faster and more convenient then my old hand held device. Despite being a tough business Braile tells me, “Its hearing success stories like yours and others where our technology makes a positive impact on peoples quality of life that keeps us going”.
The restocking fee at $120 for a product that costs $700 is not bad. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. But then you’ve got to wonder, if you could make a garbage product for $30 and rent it out for six months for $120, could you make money? The answer is a definitive yes. The 6 month money back guarantee is nothing to brag about because of the high restocking fee. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted, but the restocking fee makes me cringe just a bit.

The helmet, when worn appropriately on the head and switched on, emits a red light, which is then absorbed by your cells. They claim that the light energy absorbed stimulates a rapid change in the metabolism rate and ATP production of the cells. This causes the hair follicles that have long been dormant to start producing hair again. Aside from the promise of regrowth of your hair, it is said also to strengthens and builds up the hair follicle so that your existing hair looks a lot thicker.  Results is said to be visible in 3 to 6 months
The iRestore Laser Hair Growth System is clinically proven to treat hair loss for both men and women. Low-level laser therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and clinically proven way to stimulate hair follicles to grow thicker and fuller hair without negative side effects. This powerful medical device uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat balding, thinning hair and receding hairline.
Update @ 4 months: I've started growing my hair out. I've done a little trimming and comb-over is working well now. The hair at the bald patch is noticeably thicker. Also, the hair on the top has become much thicker to the point where I can no longer feel my scalp with my fingers. Overall I just feel like my hair is way thicker and healthier. I had some trouble lugging it around with me over the holidays, so I bought a handheld device for when I'm on vacation, and I can honestly appreciate how convenient it is to have the helmet. I hope this thing never breaks.
I'd be more than happy to provide you with a replacement pair of ear pads. The material of our pads have slightly changed, so the replacements you receive should not give you that issue. If you are not comfortable leaving your email or phone number, please feel free to contact me at 561-465-7000. If it is more convenient for you, you may email customer.service@igrowlaser.com, instead. If you don't mind, however, please feel free to reply to this message with your contact information, and I will reach out to you. Whatever is convenient for you.

The use of this product has been credited on the grounds that it has minimal or no side effects on the user since the technology used to design it and the method it uses to revive hair growth in the body of the user are both friendly to all sorts of users. The cost of the product however surprises a number of users since it only goes for six hundred and ninety five dollars; a cost that can never be compared or equated to the benefits that emanate from the use. Following the use of this product, the results can be recognized within the first four to six months of use making it a fast acting product one should go for.
You operate the device with a handheld controller that starts and stops the sessions, and which includes a small, backlit display with a timer. The LEDs automatically turn off after 25 minutes, although the controller emits a beep as a reminder. You power the unit with an AC adapter that plugs into an electrical outlet (you don’t have to worry about constantly re-charging batteries).
“A form of alternative medicine that uses low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Other names include low-power laser, soft laser, cold laser, biostimulation laser, therapeutic laser, and laser acupuncture. Whereas high-power lasers used in laser medicine destroy or cut tissue, low-power lasers are claimed to stimulate it and to encourage the cells to function.”
This is one of the newer options. If you’re an aesthetic type of person like I am, and the idea of wearing a ball cap appeals to you more than wearing a goofy-looking helmet, this may be worth checking out. It doesn’t have the review history or track record of the aforementioned products, but it does appear to be a legitimate and functional product. The Capillus82 features 82 laser diodes, a rechargeable battery back, carrying case, and a 1-year limited warranty. They claim their product has a 95% success rate.
Low Laser Light Therapy, or LLLT, is a method of hair regrowth that uses lasers and LED lights targeted at specific wavelengths of red light (usually around 650nM) to target skin cells and hair follicles, and energize them, boosting their metabolic rate and helping you regrow hair.  You should typically undertake these treatments at a frequency of 2-3 sessions per week.

A few safety tips before you use the iRestore system, or any helmet-like hair growth device, for that matter. For one, never stare directly into the laser light, because doing so can damage your eyes. Also, make sure that your hair is dry before use, and keep the device away from water and wet areas. Finally, keep it out of reach of pets and children.
​If you want to get technical about it and go the statistics way, here are the numbers. There was an increase in hair count by 37% in women and 35% in men after only 16 weeks. These reports were published by two separate peer reviewed clinical studies. Are the numbers impressive enough? Well, let’s look at what actual consumers have to say about iGrow.
Knowing that the medical device business is challenging to break into I wanted to know what the biggest hurdle has been for the Apira Science team. “When you pioneer a new technology you face severe challenges in credibility and consumer acceptance. You have the dual challenge of convincing both consumers as well as their physicians, who are normally skeptical of the efficacy of these devices and the credibility of the company. We have found that the “science sells,” but in today’s ever-changing environment traditional sources of retail are less prevalent, and digital assets and specialists are required to help navigate these changing waters”, states Braile. 

Since it takes several weeks of continued usage of the iGrow to see results I wanted to know what would happen should someone simply stop the treatment protocol. Braile tells me, “Results will diminish over time if no maintenance is followed. This is because without periodic stimulation, cells will eventually succumb to the normal aging process. However results can be quickly regenerated once treatments resume”.

My hairdresser is delighted with the results and has been giving me much better cuts; either because my hair is responding better or she is more excited about my hair and experimenting more. Who knows, all I know is I wouldn’t give my Igrow back for double the money back, but you will need to try it on your own head to see if it is right for you and in doing so, you have nothing to lose.

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.
iGrow® is intended for those with mild to moderate androgenetic (hereditary) hair loss looking for a medical-grade hair growth treatment without incurring the time and expense involved in visiting a spa, salon or doctor's office. The treatment offers a more natural and gradual alternative to expensive hair restoration procedures and in clinical studies, more than 90% of those who have hereditary hair loss showed increased hair counts with the average being around 35%. iGrow offers the same low level laser therapy (LLLT) technology used by professionals worldwide and considering that many practitioners charge as much as $3500 for a 6-month course of laser hair growth sessions, the affordable iGrow® will pay for itself after only a few treatments!
The restocking fee at $120 for a product that costs $700 is not bad. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. But then you’ve got to wonder, if you could make a garbage product for $30 and rent it out for six months for $120, could you make money? The answer is a definitive yes. The 6 month money back guarantee is nothing to brag about because of the high restocking fee. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted, but the restocking fee makes me cringe just a bit.
The only thing that can trip you up here is if you get it and don’t use it as much as you’re supposed to. If after 6 months you don’t like it and end up returning it, the restocking fee will be about $120, so worst case scenario you’re going to pay $20 a month to try it out and see what you think. When you look at it this way, and compare it to the cost of trying out other products, it doesn’t sound like too big a risk. Plus if it works you’ve got a one-off payment for a hair growth solution that you can use daily with nothing more to pay.
Update @ 9 months: So, it's normal now for people who haven't seen me to comment on my hair, usually asking if I've dyed it darker or just mentioning that it looks thicker. The hairs on my balding patch are fully mature now and seems to be as thick as other hairs although there are fewer of them there. I grew my hair out several inches and at times was sporting some serious volume. My hair is more noticeable in the shower drain, and I experienced one week of excess shedding. But the shedding was temporary and now everything is going well, I'm not worried about hair loss at all. I can feel that my hair is healthy, and I'm enjoying the ability to grow it longer and try different styles.
Again, this device in my opinion for about 70% of the people who use it, especially those with dark hair and dark skin, but also those who have not been losing hair for a long period of time, definitely less than 5 years, they will do very, very well with this device. I always stress it to be used in conjunction with all the right products, such as our products. Particularly, we have many kits that have the iGrow laser in it, so that all of that can be used successfully.
Bought this almost 2 years ago, paid over $600 for the unit. Use of it has never resulted in any more hair on my head. It was a total waste of money, and the price was certainly not insignificant. Additionally, the unit just died on me and will not even turn on anymore....but that doesn't matter since it never helped anyway. I am totally disgusted that Amazon would even list this item on their site. This makes me think twice about the quality of the items Amazon allows to be marketed for them. Oh by the way, now I see that the price has been dropped significantly. Guess people are getting wise to this gimmick product and not buying it.
I completely understand. It does feel different when you’re female though. I think hair is more important to women and more important to the way people feel about a woman. It’s completely acceptable for a guy to be balding, or have a buzz cut, but not so much for a woman. Case in point, I was recently shopping at Walmart and some older guy in a wheelchair made the unsolicited comment that it looked like someone had done a number on my hair. I asked him what he was talking about and he repeated his comment. I replied that I like to keep my hair very short. Then I turned away and he said “looks like a boy’s haircut to me” I just walked away without saying anything because it took me off guard and kind of embarrassed me. Of course 5 seconds later I was just pissed about it, but it was too late to make a witty comeback.
To be continued: I just bought this and am giving it three stars for now because the directions are incorrect or dated. The directions tell us to use this twice a week at whatever setting desired. I'm not bald so I chose the lighter setting. However, since I had read here (THANK YOU AMAZON FOR REVIEWERS!) that someone said to use it every other day, I called IGrow to ask about the proper use.
When you’re losing your hair you’ll look for anything that works. There are many different treatment options, and each company has a different approach as to how to get your hair loss to stop and even better to get it growing again. Some use creams, lotions, and serums. Others use pills to supply the body with the nutrients it needs to grow hair again. A relatively new approach is using laser combs. The iGrow is trying to take the laser comb technology and make it easier to use.

I've used this protocol in conjunction with all of our products very, very successfully, and it is the most FDA-approved laser, meaning iGrow has 2 FDA clearances, one for men and one for women, based upon their own research. This is totally unique to every other at-home device that is a helmet. This is based upon their own clinical research, their own evidence that it works, and quite frankly after using it in practice for nearly 5 years now, I know it works. It's what I recommend continuously.
I have been using igrow for more than a year and while I do not see any improvement I also do not see my hair getting any worse. I believe that the use of the igrow is helping me maintain my my current hair. I only wish that I started using the unit earlier when I had more hair. My only issue is that my ear pads are beginning to wear out. I do not see replacement parts or recommend alternative replacement pads on the igrow site so that I can replace them.
“Plants convert sunlight into energy, which they use to grow. This is similar to the process of photobiomodulation. Certain wavelengths of light whether laser or LED, are absorbed into the outer layer of skin where your hair follicles reside. The light creates ATP (cellular energy), which strengthens both the cells and the surrounding area creating a perfect scenario for hair growth. Follicles expand, hair gets thicker, and new hairs grow from the now open hair follicles”, Braile tells me of how LLLT works to stimulate hair growth.
The only thing that can trip you up here is if you get it and don’t use it as much as you’re supposed to. If after 6 months you don’t like it and end up returning it, the restocking fee will be about $120, so worst case scenario you’re going to pay $20 a month to try it out and see what you think.

Plus if it works you’ve got a one-off payment for a hair growth solution that you can use daily with nothing more to pay.
“I have been using the iGrow for more or less 7 months and I have seen substantial hair growth all over my head. I am so excited, and I have been telling my close friends about the success I have had with the iGrow. I have tried many hair re-growth treatments without any growth at all. Thanks for developing the iGrow… I actually bought another one for my son!” —Julian— Phoenix, Arizona
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".
