Laser brush boosts number of thick hairs on balding scalps, company says
Bald may be beautiful, but for guys who don't share that opinion, help could be on the way.
A Florida company says it's come up with a handheld laser device that promotes hair growth. And now they say they've got the OK from federal regulators to sell it.
The "Hairmax Lasercomb," as it's known, is a combination of a low-level laser and a comb. It went through a six-month clinical trial conducted by its manufacturer, Lexington International LLC., during which the device increased the number of thick hairs on the scalp.
