Recently there has been a great deal of discussion and controversy about the recent FDA approval of low level laser therapy. Some members of our discussion forum  feel that the marketers of these low level laser hair loss treatments have been misrepresenting this very limited approval for safety by presenting it as if it were an endorsement of their effectiveness in treating hair loss.

In reality the FDA approval for devices like the Laser Max Hair Comb is not based on any measure of their effectiveness as a hair loss treatment. Rather such laser hair therapy devices have merely been FDA approved recently for being non harmful.

Yet the marketers of these low level laser hair therapies have been cleverly touting their products FDA approval in press releases and their advertisements as if it were now proven to be an effective FDA approved hair loss product like Rogaine or Minoxidil.
