In order to determine if LLLT were to be effective in stopping hair loss they looked over the studies. According to their research, LLLT does not appear to be as effective as claimed to be. Many of the assertions not being supported by any the scientific evidence.
According to them, there’s no scientific evidence that supports the claim that LLLT can stop hair loss. Because LLLT does not have the ability to fight DHT, the root reason for hair loss, MENSCRIPT argues that it’s efficacy against hair loss is doubtful.
The researchers also discovered that the majority of studies to have a direct link to the business. Most of the studies received financial support from the manufacturer responsible for selling the product. Doubting their legitimacy.
In addition to study sponsoring, MENSCRIPT criticises the current reseach on two other accounts such as study length, and improvement in clinical quality.
