It takes time for lasers to work. You should complete the treatment before deciding if it is worth it for you. Studies on this laser have found it to be 85% effective at reduction of hair (more)

The key to success with laser therapy is really choosing the best laser device and regimen for treatment. Some hair loss patients do better with in-office treatments and others with at-home units. The power and convenience of an at home laser like LaserCap is helpful for those patients who cannot make it to the office for the required 3x/week treatments.
The other factor is tracking your progress. In the early stages... like the first few months, it can be difficult to tell which areas are improving. HairCheck is a non-invasive tool that scientifically measures hair growth without trimming any hair. Routine HairCheck visits can help you track your improvement in the early stages of treatment and can also help you see if you are maintaining benefits from whatever treatment over time. If you know your 'number' you know what's working and how well.

  In-office hood treatments vs. at-home LaserCap
February 1, 2011 6:43 AM

New tech in LLLT like the LaserCap might make visiting a clinic for Laser Therapy obsolete. LaserCap is a fully portable, cordless, rechargeable, hands-free, discreet and simple treatment device. With more than 220 individual laser diodes embedded under a traditional baseball hat, the LaserCap is by far the easiest at-home laser therapy device for the hair and scalp currently available. No more combing or brushing with weak hand-held devices. No more driving to the clinic for treatments. You can use LaserCap in the comfort of your own home, in your car, walking the dog, etc. Since it is easy to use, patients are finding that they are more compliant with the treatment regimen... and therefore getting better results.

  Revage 670

In answer to the response "if it's not working it's a waste." Not helpful. Many things do not work for a long period of time (exercise, lazer txs on skin) and prove beneficial in the long run. It does not appear to be aorking after three weeks. I am aksing if there is any information about its efficacy over the long term.

In answer to your question, I have been doing the Revage laser for three weeks.

Thank you so much, Dr. Bauman. If I proceed with hair transplantation, I will definitely consider going to FL for you to do the Neograft approach. What I get from your response is that the Revage 670 laser may produce some modest improvement on the thickness of my thinning hair and perhaps even revive some still active follicles. But it also sound like this will take months. And at $200/week for three months and then $100 for week for at least another three months, it is seeming cost prohibitive. Perhaps I should consider the handheld unit you recommend - do you think results would be comparable?
