More on this chart: The chart above compares the different devices available for administering low level laser therapy for hair loss. Lasers produce and emit light at specific wavelengths and watts of power. All the devices compared here emit 5mW of power per laser at wavelengths of 650 nanometers. The wavelength of laser light is chosen for laser devices based on its specific purpose. As per the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons, “The laser light used for treatment of pattern hair loss is visible red light with wavelength of 630-670 nanometers and low power (wattage),” [i].
