South Korea has always been at the forefront when it comes to cosmetology and remedying unfortunate genetics with experimental treatments. The latest innovation from the plastic surgery capital of the world, however, won’t require you to go under the knife for the incredible benefit. This is the LG Pra.L MediHair… and it’s an actual hair growth/regrowth helmet.
Approved by South Korea’s drug safety ministry, the LG Pra.L MediHair is a wearable device that is based on Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) – an approved treatment for androgenetic alopecia. Otherwise known as male-pattern baldness.
Combining 146 lasers and 104 LED lights, the LG hair growth helmet stimulates hair follicle stem cells in what’s known as the bulge region to support and facilitate hair growth (obviously); as well as slowing down male pattern baldness.
According to a clinical study conducted by the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, participants who used this very hair regrowth helmet three times a week for a total run of 16 weeks reportedly saw a noticeable improvement in both hair density and thickness.
There’s no word on when the LG Pra.L MediHair hair growth helmet will be commercially available just yet nor the international/domestic pricing (although one is currently available on eBay for around $2,000).
All we know is that it’s on the way and the sun’s shining brighter for skin kings.
