When considering the cost per diode, the illumiflow 148 laser cap is about three times less expensive.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 18, 2019
In the crowded laser hair growth device industry, many popular and expensive brands cut costs by ‘stuffing’ devices with the useless LEDs for cosmetic reasons, to the detriment of effectivity. This practice generally means less lasers per square inch, meaning less scalp coverage. Market disruptor illumiflow® (https://illumiflow.com) is making waves speaking out about the importance of laser diode count on their website, and championing a lasers-only approach in their devices.
While use of red LEDS has not proven effective in treating hair loss, it is commonly included in LLLT products to give consumers a visible representation of the device’s efficacy. The idea is that if consumers can see the bright red LED lights are working, they will feel more satisfied by the ability of the device to regrow hair. The only problem is, with the availability of information on the internet, it appears that today’s consumers are now beginning to discuss cost per diode on hair loss forums.
Many laser cap brands combine red LEDS with as low as just 21 lasers to stimulate hair follicles, a number not proven to give necessary scalp coverage, according to illumiflow. illumiflow’s model with the least laser diodes is the laser cap 148 model which has 148 diodes, and they have a model that goes as high as 272 diodes.
Another first is that the illumiflow®148 and 272 run on a system that offers users the choice of going mobile—by using standard rechargeable battery packs. There is no need to rely on a wall outlet, limiting users’ freedom to the length of the cord. Pre-existing brands often have limited the mobility of the user by requiring wall plug-in. In response, certain brands have begun to attempt to compete by offering a rechargeable option, along with steep charges to upgrade to that feature.
illumiflow improves upon the plastic helmet style used by many competitors, which they hope will allow for greater travel and mobility of the user. The illumiflow® 148 and 272 caps fit into durable, lightweight baseball style caps. Users can stuff the device into a backpack or luggage because of the compact cap structure in order to continue treatment during travel. The illumiflow cap is three times lighter than some products with helmet-style models, which they cite as one of the main reasons illumiflow felt the need for change.
The illumiflow 148 offers treatment at a significantly lower cost than many similar products. The illumiflow 148 laser cap is their most affordable choice, coming in at $599, while laser helmets from similar brands cost around $595. While they’ve been undercut by about five dollars by brands offering less diodes, when considering the cost per diode, the illumiflow 148 laser cap is about three times less expensive.
In the crowded marketplace for hair loss treatment devices, it’s rare to see companies making products less expensive while also increasing the number of expensive parts involved, in this case the effective laser diodes. This is particularly true in the hair loss industry, where the name of the game might often seem to be, ‘they need it, they’ll pay for it.’ Perhaps most surprisingly, illumiflow also breaks the mold by sharing holistic hair growth tips with consumers on their blog, https://holistichairhealth.com where the company shares articles exploring the use of laser therapy as just one essential aspect of growing back hair without resorting to pharmaceuticals or surgery, amid many completely free hair growth tactics.
