Bosley also offers treatments using the LaserComb Elite and Theradome Laser Helmet, which are FDA approved medical devices that emit “controlled laser energy” to promote hair regrowth. However, both of these options are generally best for individuals with early-stage hair loss.
Does Bosley’s Hair Transplantation Procedure Hurt?
“Although patients are administered local anesthetics and other medications, the degree of pain or discomfort experienced during or after the procedure varies according to the patient. We may supply patients with medication to use after the procedure, if needed. Many of our patients find that they do not need to take any medication at all after their hair transplant procedure.”
With this said, we encountered many online reviewers who claimed that the procedure was much more intensive than they were originally led to believe (more about this in a moment).
Will Bosley’s Hair Transplantation Cause Scarring?
Bosley claims that the scarring from their hair transplantation procedure will be virtually undetectable and will usually be covered by your existing hair. Again, we’ll come back around to this topic shortly.
With this said, it can take 12-18 months for the full effects of the hair transplant to become apparent, and 3-6 months for FUE.
Propecia patients generally begin experiencing results after 12 months of continuous use, while Minoxidil takes 4 months to begin and up to 1 year for full results.
Finally, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) success rates vary wildly, although for those who experienced some level of benefits, it generally took at least 3-4 months to occur.
