Previously only available to women, the LH80 PRO Laser Helmet leverages laser phototherapy (also known as low-level laser light therapy) to stimulate weak hair follicles and provide them with targeted laser energy, which improves cellular metabolism and protein synthesis required to grow and maintain a healthy head of hair.

The device, which produces results with two 20-minute treatments each week, uses 80 red lasers to generate over 440 J of energy and treat the full scalp area. The lasers delivers the optimum wavelength of light for hair growth (678 nm).
