RESULTS

Goal

Researchers tested 785 nm (infrared) light on balding patients aged 17 to 45 years old.

The treated group received 5% minoxidil solution and infrared light therapy two times per day.

The control group received 5% minoxidil and a sham LED treatment device.

Researchers tested hair patient satisfaction,  hair density and hair growth.

At 12 months, the patients getting both minoxidil and LED ligh therapy were singificantly happier with their hair growth than the sham group.
