LG Debuts Hair Growth Helmet to Combat Hair Loss
The futuristic device uses light therapy to stimulate hair growth.
Part of LG’s Pra.L beauty product line, the MediHair is a sleek white helmet that utilizes Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) to treat androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. Similar hair-growth devices that use LLLT, such as the illumiflow, have been FDA-cleared for over-the-counter use. LG’s version is made with 146 laser and 104 LED lights that stimulate hair follicle stem cells, supporting hair growth and slowing down the balding process. According to LG, a study conducted at the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital reported that patients who used the Pra.L MediHair three times a week for 16 weeks saw improved hair density and thickness.
