iGrow Hair Growth System from Apira Science Gets FDA Green Light
Apira Science of Boca Raton, Florida received FDA 510(k) approval for its iGrow hair growth system for men with androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness. The system purports to reverse hair loss by projecting red light onto the scalp using a laser and LEDs built into the helmet-like device, what the company calls Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT).
The therapy takes four to six months of wearing the cap in the privacy of your home, something you’ll appreciate since others might think you’re wearing a high-tech tin-foil hat. It has a standard 3.5 mm connector to plug in your phone or music player, so you can listen to tunes, or even meditate on the activity of your hair follicles.
