LLLT Safety Part II - Addressing EMF fields when using LLLT/Laser Therapy for Hair Loss!

People are more conscious about health effects the "unseen" waves around them -particularly EMF radiation and Wi-Fi. So, all those laser diodes up on your head must be generating a lot of electromagnetic fields, right??

WRONG! The brunt of EMF radiation is generated at the POWER SUPPLY! Don't wear the power supply on your head and you are fine!
There are no detectable EMFs at the point of the laser helmet.
Don't wear the power supply on your head, and you'll be fine! :)

“Would You Take a Knife to a Gun Fight?” Laser Light vs. LED Light… the DIFFERENCE explained!

Think L.E.D.s are as good as laser therapy/LLLT for Hair Loss? DEAD WRONG. L.E.D.'s are indeed useful for skin and health -and probably show some merit against hair loss- however, it is *not* the same thing as explained in my blog entry.

It takes REAL LASERS to make a profound impact on hair loss for several very real reasons explained in this article!
Lasers vs. LEDs -there is no competition.  Laser therapy beats LEDS every time!
"Whenever LED and lasers have been compared in studies (13 studies found), laser has come out on top." Jan Turner @ www.laser.nu

How many times a week should you use your laser device for hair loss?? -ANSWERED!

The TIME you use it each session depends on the device --I know EXACTLY how long to use the Laser Messiah II. ...But how many TIMES A WEEK is a little bit more flexible!

Here are the guidelines and the more recent conclusions that I've come to based on hearing from hundreds and hundreds of my customers (and my own experiences!).
Calendar of Laser Therapy Usage -frequency of LLLT usage for fighting hair loss!
Please note that I'm talking about REAL laser therapy device --professional ones, my Laser Messiah II, etc.! Not the mass-marketed CRAP out there!

The Connection between Laser Therapy / LLLT for Hair Loss and DHT REVEALED!!!

"OverMachoGrande... do you know the connection between lasers and DHT?" People are simply waiting on the edge of their seat to hear how lasers fit right in to what they think they know about hair loss!

Yes, I know the connection. If you want to read the answer, you'd better be prepared to "let go" something you may have been conditioned to believe as an absolute truth, though, and the answer may not be what you expect!
Does Laser Therapy impact DHT?  Mike Tyson's Mystery Team investigates!  Well, not really.
If you know this cartoon, you are laughing right now (even though hair loss is no laughing matter!). Professional caliber laser devices grow hair and halt further hair loss... ALL ON THEIR OWN. It's been PROVEN!

Laser Clinic for Hair Loss Success Rate Observations… 71% in the first 6 months, 80-90% after 1 year!

These aren't simply "studies" that happen somewhere in some text. These are REAL LIFE/REAL WORLD RESULTS!
Those are the stats from Dr. Maricle -one of the world's leading authorities on LLLT and hair loss- based on his observations and information gathering over his long, expansive history with laser therapy for hair loss.

This is key... those aren't STUDIES that don't translate into "real life". Those numbers are REAL WORLD NUMBERS from REAL PEOPLE.

Those numbers represent what is actually occurring in clinics with laser devices that provide the necessary 3-6 joules of energy under each diode to thousands of customer's scalps all over the world.
OverMachoGrande's Hair Loss Clinic -it would be the best in the world, for sure!
Hmmm... a possible goal for the future? What do you think... should I strive for my own clinic? I'm lucky enough to know some of the best minds in the hair loss world today, so maybe...

Safety of Laser Therapy for Hair Loss—Can it cause cancer??  What about eye safety??—ANSWERED!

The wavelength of the diodes we use (650nm) at our power level (5mW) DO NOT cause cancer, they are considered not harmful for eyes [don't stare at them too long, though, dammit... I'm sure there *is* a way you could hurt yourself!], and they only do GOOD THINGS to you!

Read for more details!
Laser Safety -is laser therapy / LLLT for hair loss safe?
Laser Therapy has been extensively studied for DECADES. Yet... it's still pretty much UNKNOWN to most people! [That's simply because it's doesn't require a prescription.]

Question: O.M.G., does laser light penetrate through my thick hair, too?? -ANSWERED!

This question is usually followed with "Should I buzz my hair down initially when I'm doing these treatments?"

The short answer is that it doesn't matter how thick your hair is... laser therapy is getting to the scalp! Trust me, that scalp of yours is still getting irradiated with nice, soothing, healing, BRIGHT LLLT! You can't stop it.

Laser Light with LLLT / Laser Therapy for Hair Loss DOES INDEED penetrate thick hair!
Impossible to photograph, but this should show that there is a large laser footprint on my skin that penetrated through my thick side hair!

You want DIFFUSED diodes with Laser Therapy for Hair Loss—not dots!  So how much do ‘diffused diodes’... diffuse?? -Laser diffusion sizes at 1cm / 2cm / 3cm!

We noticed eons ago from our own experiments that "diffused" (uncollimated)laser diodes (with lens caps removed) work better than "dots". We also noticed that most pro devices remove the lens caps and have "diffused" diodes, whereas many of the mass-marketed crappy ones still have that lens cap, constraining the footprint and sucking away power.

This will help you if you want to see the rough size of a diffused diode at the heights of 1cm, 2cm, and 3cm...
You want diffused laser diodes to fight hair loss -not dots!
Guess which type my Laser Messiah II uses? :)
Guess which type mass-marketed crap uses? :P

Laser Therapy Diode Spacing—Don’t have a Home Depot but want to space or calculate your diodes like us? Look no further!

With LLLT devices for hair loss, diode spacing is CRUCIAL. You want to minimize gaps and overlaps to get more of the scalp into the "window of energy" for the best results possible!

This is a template to help you determine how many diodes you need to make your own DIY laser device for hair loss (or to help you better determine how many diodes you need on the laser helmet that I make -the Laser Messiah II!).

One of my worktables, and seeing this reminds me that I'm going to have to refinish it one day soon!

Hairmax Revealed - Inside the $600-$700 Hairmax Laser Comb (It’s SICKENING)

This HURT every hair loss sufferer. Why?? Because LLLT is a fantastic treatment for hair loss, but this comb was overpriced, less-than-spectacular, and turned people off of a great treatment (when done RIGHT, like with my Laser Messiah II!).
Inside the Hairmax Laser Comb -more circuitry inside your remote control on your coffee table!
Believe it or not, I was asked once, "Well, don't you think you OWE HairMax for bringing awareness to laser therapy??" What?! NO. I BLAME THEM for keeping laser therapy out of my regimen for a decade!

How’s this for results… [Laser Therapy / LLLT for Hair Loss with the LDS 100 Laser Clinic Device]

No minoxidil (which is TERRIBLE anyway, and if you ever are thinking about starting minox, please email me!!!), no finasteride, and no hair style changes -just RESULTS with laser therapy! Oh, and it's not done by a mass-marketed device, either -it's done with a professional strength laser clinic device!
Chart of LDS 100 professional laser clinic device results
Yet... this treatment is still largely ignored! Why?? ...because of the INFERIOR DEVICES out there on the market! Vote "Laser Messiah"!

Laser clinic dishonesty in reduction of times/week during course of treatment…

Don't fall for it... just like anything else, you have to keep doing it to keep the benefits!
"Hey", said the Laser Clinic advertisement, "Don't worry about it... you only have to do this treatment for six months/one year/whatever our most profitable time period is, and then you can only do maintenance treatments every blue moon after that!" [...said NO SCIENCE EVER.]
Doctor and Dr. Evil - Laser clinic dishonesty
Well... I wouldn't say they are "evil", ha ha... but I would say that it's a sales pitch. Now, the $700 mass-marketed devices with a tiny amount of diodes are indeed EVIL, though!

Sunetics Model “G” Complete Laser System

The $40,000 benchmark for laser clinic professional devices! ...and my helmet uses the EXACT SAME DIODES (and, umm... for A LOT less money! Ha ha!!!).
Laser Clinic with Sunetics G -the benchmark for hair loss!
Photographing laser therapy in action is actually pretty hard. The lasers BLOW OUT the picture very easily.

So what’s the deal with all of these clays? Clays for Hair Loss and How They Help with LLLT!

The hair loss internet world has endured spectacular claims about clays for hair loss. However, once you separate the fact from the fiction, there are still very solid reasons that most people suffering from MPB would probably have some benefit from using this simple treatment.

These reasons are analyzed, and instructions are given on how you can make this treatment right in your own home.

Also, LLLT users get an invaluable benefit from using clay as a "pre-shower topical", and I'll explain why in this two part video news article.

LASER THERAPY FOR WOMEN’S HAIR LOSS: BREAKING NEWS - NEW FDA CLEARANCE FOR FEMALE PATTERN BALDNESS FOR A LASER DEVICE

The FLOWBEE…  A hair loss sufferer’s best friend! (Also a mention of Grapefruit Seed Extract)

I absolutely will make a video on this soon and go over some easy styles!
Every person fighting hair loss should own one! You can give yourself a stylish haircut that rivals any barber or Super Cuts, and you don't have to suffer the indignity of having someone messing with your balding head!

You how humiliating it can be getting a hair cut, so why not remove that from your life permanently!
The Flowbee is a hair loss sufferer's best friend!!!
I've been a proud Flowbee user since 2008 --that means that every picture you see me in, it's a Flowbee hair cut that I DID MYSELF!

OverMachoGrande has retired from [other] hair loss forums indefinitely!

You are welcome to email me at omg@overmachogrande.com, though!
Haven't seen me in forums lately? I build the greatest laser helmet for hair loss in the WORLD! ...That makes it a bit "unethical" or wrong or something for me to post anywhere else but my own sites and own forums!

I wish OTHER COMPETITORS felt the same way --I see them posting ALL THE TIME!!!

This is an old post that I re-upped to remind people that I really don't post in forums, so that might be why you don't see much from me!

LLLT / Laser Therapy and Gray Hair: An unexpected Christmas present from my laser helmet to me!  ...Noticeable reduction of gray hair!

Gray hair reduction with laser therapy / LLLT has been reported for years with professional laser devices. I actually didn't know this when I first started, and this is the story of my unexpected surprise!
LLLT / Laser Therapy reduces gray hair!
It definitely took an entire year for me to notice this, but this is an exciting and unexpected benefit of laser therapy for hair loss for me!
This is an old article re-upped -and LLLT definitely reduces gray hair! I have another article coming soon -but until then, you can email me at omg@overmachogrande.com!

Switchable Zones and Soreness… an Added Benefit to Laser Therapy for Hair Loss (???)

Older article, and I will follow up with this more soon --It's really fascinating!
UPDATE: Since my foray into selling the world's greatest laser helmet for hair loss, the "Laser Messiah II", I have determined from a much larger "sample pool" that some of the concepts in this article are wrong (mainly: full coverage DOES give stimulation as much as zones) -but this "soreness thing" is still an interesting phenomenon!

Look for my upcoming article about "I no longer make switchable zones" for more info, and I have some updates in this article!!
Switchable Zones and Soreness -an added benefit?
In my opinion... one of the more interesting phenomena of Laser Therapy for Hair Loss!

What a FANTASTIC WEEK for the “common person” like you and me!

This is an old article from October 17th, 2008 that I wanted to "re-up" and transfer to the new site. It's a great reminder that even DOCTORS that you think would be on top of cutting-edge hair loss research can still be relentlessly unethical (and idiotic). Also, it showcases one of the worst-of-the-worst in deception and trickery from a mass-marketed inferior laser device manufacturer!

I no longer endorse “standard laser brushes” (or devices with ridiculously low numbers of diodes, for that matter!)

Professional results are achieved via COVERAGE, and getting the proper energy to the area of skin below the diode! The inferior devices just are not supported scientifically (they can't get into the proper "window of energy"), and even more importantly... there is just NO DANG SUCCESS STORIES with any of them in the forums! All I see is a lot of disappointment and anger -and even worse, CONFUSION.
This may seem OBVIOUS now, but I re-upped this so you can read why I finally had to announce this!
