If that’s the case then why doesn’t FDA do something about hairmax openly claiming that their device was tested by FDA for EFFICACY and safety? FDA did mind when hairmax stated that their device was APPROVED instead of cleared. So why dont they mind now? Such devices cannot be approved but only cleared.
Why dont you put this subject to rest by contacting FDA and asking them if they tested efficacy as well?
What about the recent peer reviewed published materials in the scientific journals that you were asking for so badly a couple of years ago?
What about your laser hat trials??
I respect you very much doctor, but when you talk about LLLT, you seem to be against it without any substantial basis.
Our laser cap trials were inconclusive with mixed results. The subjective view of some patients suggested benefit, but when we measured the hair bulk on these patients we saw not benefit. Patients had mixed reviews. One can argue that the trials were inherently flawed because we gave the laser caps away as a compensation for their time.
It is not my job to contact the FDA and my opinion of laser light therapy for hair growth is just that: my opinion. If you disagree with my opinions here on BaldingBlog, then I am ok with that! I want to correct one of your statements: The FDA does not, nor does it ever, test these devices. They rely on the manufacturer for the tests and review their data in submitted applications.
