LG’s Beauty Division Develops Laser Helmet Combat Hair Loss
LG’s beauty division Pra.L. Products has launched a game-changing new hair loss product named the LG Prael MediHair, which uses Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) to stimulate hair growth.
The device, which is shaped like a helmet, helps combat baldness with the aid of 146 lasers and 104 LED lights which stimulate the stem cells responsible for hair follicle growth.
The helmet targets problem areas on the head such as the crown and front where hair loss most often occurs.
The South Korean company’s product is FDA approved as a treatment for Androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male-pattern baldness.
LG says a clinical study carried out in a Seoul hospital found using MediHair three times a week for 16 weeks improves hair density and thickness.
The MediHair uses three modes: Total Care mode which treats the entire scalp, a Front Care mode that focuses on the front and a Top Care mode which focuses on the crown. LG claims there is a My Care mode which uses sensors to detect problem areas if the user is not sure which mode to choose.
LG’s beauty arm Pra L. Products also manufactures other beauty technology products including an ultrasonic cleanser for the face, a derma LED mask and a galvanic ion booster.
There is no word yet on when the MedHair is set to launch in South Korea or internationally or what the RRP will be.
