There's a Big Difference Between Lasers & LEDs
Let's Break it Down

You need the POWER of laser light to penetrate down to the hair follicles to stimulate hair growth.

HairMax devices are manufactured with 100% Medical Grade Lasers - No LEDs.

Lasers provide focused, narrow band light, which is coherent and more effective than LEDs. All of the Laser energy is concentrated into a single wavelength of light.

- 41 Medical Grade Lasers No LEDs

HairMax devices are manufactured with 100% Medical Grade Lasers – NO LEDs.

- 82 Medical Grade Lasers

- 41 Medical Grade Lasers No LEDs

iRestore helmets mix lasers and LEDs because LEDs are significantly less expensive. However, they’re not proven to work as well as lasers. 

LEDs disperse broad band light, which is not coherent, not as effective, and significantly less expensive than laser diodes.  

- Only 21 Lasers

- 30 LEDs

iRestore helmets are comprised of lasers and LEDs. LEDs are significantly less expensive and are not proven to work as well as lasers.

- Only 21 Lasers

- 30 LEDs

LaserBand Devices - 12X MORE Laser Density Than iRestore

HairMax - Laser Intensity
Focused Laser Light Reaches Follicles

Laser light is collimated, meaning it travels in a straight line. This collimated light penetrates the scalp to reach the follicle root, which is vital to stimulate hair growth.

iRestore - Diffused Light- Less Energy Reaches Follicles

iRestore Essential Helmet contains about 50% more LEDs than laser diodes, The light emanating from LEDs is not collimated, therefore it is reflected across the scalp – this provides less energy to the follicles.

Give it the DENSITY PAPER TEST to see how much laser light energy you're really getting.

The saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. It proves so true in the images below. We gave the iRestore Helmet and LaserBand Devices the "Paper Test" that clearly shows the actual amount of laser density.

Lasers are uniformly and densely placed in the LaserBand devices

Lasers are spaced evenly and densely in rows, which allows for an even and consistent distribution of light energy. There are no gaps, providing total and even scalp coverage. In fact, the LaserBand devices have 12x the laser density over the iRestore Essential Helmet.

Lasers on the iRestore devices are widely spaced

Light delivery is inconsistent and does not provide full scalp coverage or penetration to the follicles.

Simply put, there is less light energy that actually reaches your scalp, to the detriment of the treatment.

Front, Back and Sides
We've got you covered.

LaserBands – Full scalp Coverage

LaserBands provide full scalp, ear to ear, and front to back scalp coverage. The entire scalp is treated with nourishing laser light energy.

iRestore Helmet – Partial coverage

Provides top of head laser coverage ONLY. The light does not reach down the sides of the scalp and only the top portion of your head receives treatment.

HairMax Exclusive
Patented Hair Parting Teeth Technology.

Hair is designed by nature as a photo protectant, its purpose is to block sunlight from the scalp. This holds true for Laser Light as well. That's why we've innovated Hair Parting Teeth Technology to part your hair and allow the therapeutic light energy to reach your follicles and activate them for hair growth.

LaserBand devices are designed with a patented hair parting teeth mechanism, which greatly increases effectiveness of treatment.

The hair parting teeth part your hair to provide an unobstructed path for the laser light to reach your hair follicles.  

With the HairMax devices, you can see the cleared path for light energy to reach your hair follicles.

Stimulation Occurs.

HairMax Hair Parting Teeth

iRestore devices do not feature hair parting teeth. Your hair, being a photo protectant, significantly blocks the light energy from reaching your hair follicles. Root stimulation does not occur or is greatly reduced.

On the iRestore Helmet your hair blocks a majority of the laser light. It never reaches your follicles.

NO Stimulation Occurs.

iRestore - No Hair Parting Teeth
