Question

Can low-level laser therapy lead to improved hair density in androgenetic alopecia?

Answer

There are only studies of low quality showing treatment efficacy in androgenetic alopecia. The validity of a single RCT with positive results (sponsored by the manufacturer) is, however, limited because of methodologic deficits. Laser treatment of androgenetic alopecia is not recommended in guidelines.
