iGrow uses the Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), where the red light from the device stimulates cells within the hair follicle. Recent researches have identified that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, triggering enhanced cellular activity and making aging cells more active, thereby increasing their effectiveness in hair growth.
Hair loss is one depressing problem that I faced few days ago & iGrow was one stop solution for it. I started regaining my lost hair by spending just 20 minutes every day.
I saw drastic results in just 16 weeks & really loved my new healthy hair. It’s truly life changing & I'm overwhelmed for getting back my own hair.
Every time I look at myself now, I feel so good and special about my hair. Few months ago, I started losing my hair and my scalp was becoming so much visible to others. It was then that I came to know about iGrow and it seemed to be so surprising.
It really worked & now I’m free from grabbing a hat/scarf to cover up my head every time I got out. I feel so confident & strongly believe in iGrow
I started losing my hair from when I was just 35 and I felt so worried and depressed because of this. After I started using iGrow, I was really amazed at the improvement in the density of my hair.
Just 120 days and I had my hair back. Am so excited and happy about regaining my hair and confidence.
LLLT is an acronym for Low Level Light Therapy. This refers to a therapy that utilizes laser or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength. Light sources used for LLLT may include laser and LED devices. Laser devices used for LLLT are also referred to as cold lasers. LLLT devices produce no heat, are safe and cannot burn or injure the skin.
Multiple clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of Low—Level Light Therapy in promoting hair growth in men and women with androgenetic alopecia. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but the most recent research has identified that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, triggering enhanced cellular activity. In other words, the theory is that LLLT makes aging cells more active, thereby increasing their effectiveness in hair growth.
Yes! Please see our page on clinical studies, here.
Yes, Medical Doctors, including dermatologists, in the United States, Europe and Asia prescribe the iGrow® for use with male patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia.
Red light from Laser and LED devices emitting 650—670nm wavelength light can stimulate cells within the follicle, as part of an effective LLLT hair treatment. The Laser light produces a specific wavelength that is believed to stimulate the hair follicle cells. The LED light uses a broader beam of gentle light energy to cover a wider area of the scalp. Combining the Lasers and LEDs offers the benefit of both light sources for men and women with androgenetic alopecia (thinning hair). But the proof is in the results. The iGrow Hair Growth System has shown the highest percentage increase in new hair growth of any published clinical studies on light mediated hair growth.
It is important to use light within the recommended wavelength for laser hair treatment. Research studies suggest the most effective wavelength for hair growth is between 650—670nm. This wavelength has the most efficient and effective absorption that is essential for hair growth.
Most LLLT devices use either LEDs or Lasers. The iGrow® by Apira Science, Inc. utilizes both high—quality Laser and LED light sources. This form of LLLT is effective for hair growth in men and women with genetic—based hair thinning/loss. Will all laser and light devices provide equivalent results on the scalp? No. Not all devices have the same power and energy output, and therefore will not yield the same results. Many devices only cover a limited area. The iGrow® combines Laser and LED light in a hands—free automated device that is easy to use, while providing consistent scalp coverage in each 20—25 minute treatment session.
There is no evidence that increased Low—Level Light Therapy (LLLT) will provide better results. LLLT should only be used as prescribed. Each LLLT session should be followed by a period of rest. This translates into alternating session days.
Hair loss is a progressive condition. If untreated, you can expect to lose more hair over time. After the initial 4 to 6 month LLLT treatment period, you should continue sessions once or twice per week to maintain your hair quality.
The iGrow® is intended to be used by men and women who are afflicted with androgenetic alopecia. LLLT hair treatment should be incorporated into your weekly preventative maintenance routine to preserve and strengthen existing hair and provide a healthy environment for continued growth.
LLLT is effective in men and women ages 18 and older. Please consult your physician if you are under the age of 18.
Yes. LLLT can be used immediately after transplant surgery. Doctors have reported that using LLLT can help stimulate healing of the wounds, and improve transplant results in hair loss patients. In fact, hair transplant surgeons worldwide have chosen to use the LLLT to improve results. Anecdotal reports have shown that LLLT sessions immediately following surgery decrease the recovery time in hair transplant patients, and increases hair thickness. Consult with your transplant surgeon for more information.
The iGrow® has been specially designed with safety features for at—home, office and travel use, including a safety mechanism controlling both laser and LED devices.

Yes, the iGrow® requires no manual movement. Simply, place the iGrow® on your head, select one of 5 pre— programmed sessions and then sit back and relax. When will I know if iGrow® is working for me? Every person is different. However, within 12 to 16 weeks of using iGrow® as directed, most users report that they can see a positive change. The appearance of thicker, fuller, and healthier—looking hair is typical within 24 weeks, or 6 months of LLLT.
You can use your normal shampoo to keep your hair and scalp clean.
No. Testing and user testimonials have shown no side effects when utilizing the iGrow® with LLLT for hair growth.

Balding is a touchy topic with many people. They do not like to be reminded that their thick mane is now thinning, and what is left of it barely conceals their scalp. They miss running their hands through their hair, and more often than not, their confidence is linked to the amount of hair on their heads.
Hair transplant surely seems to be the only option available. But, a new method called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is creating waves worldwide. LLLT helps in stimulating and energizing weak and thin hair follicles and shafts.
Usually, over time, follicles get damaged or deconstructed. In such cases, the hair progressively becomes thinner, and eventually dies, thereby not producing hair ever again. LLLT can, as has been proven in clinical trials, stimulate and re–energise these follicles so that they can produce thick hair again!
Apira Science, a pioneer in LLLT for the last 10 years, has come up with a device that can be used at home to re– grow hair. The iGrow device, patented by Apira Science, utilizes this LLLT technique and can be used at home. iGrow covers your full scalp with light from 51 sources (30 LEDs and 21 lasers), with an output of anything between 650 and 670 nanometers.
Technically, this creates wavelengths that are considered to be optimum in treating hair loss. The laser diodes’ output is 5 milliwatts. If you look it up, you’ll find that the lasers are 'Cold lasers', and, in effect, will not cause any harm.
The helmet, in addition to being extremely easy to use, is more comfortable than it looks. Like any new apparatus, you need to get used to wearing it. You can use it at home, while doing whatever it is you like doing.
