Low Level laser therapy for hair loss: efficacy analysis by MENSCRIPT

The use of low-level light therapy (LLLT) to treat male hair loss has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. Manufacturers are claiming to stop the process of hair loss and to increase hair density and thickness’ after only two or three treatments.

In the case of MENSCRIPT however these claims are exaggerated. MENSCRIPT can be described as an Online Health Clinic for Men that allows men to speak an online doctor and be treated for issues like the loss of hair and erectile dysfunction, acne , and the signs of ageing on the skin.

In an effort to find out whether LLLT could be effective against hair loss, they analysed the studies. And according to their analysis, LLLT does not appear to be as effective as claimed to be. The majority of claims not supported by scientific evidence.

According to them, there is no evidence from science that supports the claim that LLLT stops hair loss. Because LLLT lacks efficacy against DHT, the root reason for hair loss, MENSCRIPT asserts that its effectiveness against loss of hair is not likely.

They also found most studies to have a direct link to the industry. The majority of them receive financial assistance from the company who is responsible for selling the product. Doubting their legitimacy. Besides study sponsorship, MENSCRIPT criticises the current reseach on two other accounts, namely study length and clinical improvement.
