Spencer Forrest’s X5 Laser Device Enters Clinical Trials for Treatment of Male Pattern Baldness
Spencer Forrest’s X5 Hair Laser has entered clinical trials to determine efficacy in the stimulation of hair growth and the cessation of hair loss in men who are balding. If approved, the X5 will become one of only four other products to receive recognition from the FDA for treating male pattern baldness.
Westport, CT (PRWEB) June 6, 2008 – Spencer Forrest Inc. has announced the commencement of major clinical trials of the X5 HairLaser. The X5 is the most advanced personal laser therapy device ever developed for the treatment of thinning hair. The aim of the study is to gain clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration validating the effectiveness of the X5 in halting hair loss and stimulating hair growth in persons with balding and thinning hair.
The double-blind, placebo controlled study is being conducted at several prestigious research centers and universities throughout the United States. The study will focus on a large sample of men experiencing hair loss, with a female study to follow. If proven effective and cleared by the FDA, the X5 will become one of only four products ever recognized by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern baldness
The X5 was introduced in late 2007 and features numerous technological advances over all previous laser therapy devices. The X5 uses 15 individual laser beams to ensure maximum coverage and optimum power. The laser light makes direct contact with the scalp rather than previous “comb” designs which lose much of their power due to hair remaining in the balding area. The use of 15 individual lasers makes the X5 the most powerful laser hair therapy device ever developed for personal use.
The X5 is operated with a rechargeable cordless power supply and utilizes a small, circular design (it can be held in the palm of ones hand). The X5 actually conforms to the shape of the subject’s scalp for a precise angle of penetration. It comes equipped with a backlit LCD screen allowing the user to precisely track his treatment time. All of these features are designed to ensure that the X5 yields significantly greater benefits in addition to allowing for superior user comfort.
