X5 HairLaser

X5 HairLaser

I remember seeing this ad in a newspaper that claimed: “Now there is an easy answer. Laser Hair Removal!” It showed a pretty woman with great legs, and I can only assume that her bikini wax was somehow done with lasers.

Well, I have no idea how lasers can remove hair, but apparently they can restore hair. This is exactly what the X5 HairLaser is designed to do. This little gadget is designed to fit in your hand like a tiny scalp massager, and can blast “15 distinct points of coherent laser light directly to your scalp at the optimum power and wavelength”.

Somehow, all these lasers are supposed to promote hair growth. However, it doesn’t work all at once, but it is a treatment that requires 10-15 minutes, three times a week. Anyone know if that is better than Rogaine’s program?

To me, this item seems like snake oil, but I have to admit that I don’t know a dang about hair restoration, and I’m not at the stage where I really need it. However, given a few more decades, and I may discover how much hair I can lose in my old age. Perhaps this technology will have greatly improved by the time I do need it.

But if you need this now, the X5 HairLaser is available for about $300, and it has a six-month return policy.

I do not know what this device does. I have never tried it personally. But do not let John Doe scare you. Countless research has been conducted on the safety and use of low level laser light to stimulate hair growth.

In 1964, Hungarian Professor Andre Mester began studying the use of low-power laser energy in biological systems. He observed that low-energy laser exposure had a stimulating effect on the biological system, while high-energy laser exposure had an inhibitory effect. He found that diabetic sores which would otherwise remain chronic, were healed. But most importantly, he was amazed to find accelerated hair growth and thickening of the hair in the treated areas.
