I am a 37 year-old male currently suffering from mild-moderate melasma and have been advised by my doctor to avoid UV/sun exposure. The melasma is localized mainly to my forehead and right cheekbone. I currently use a Kojic-Acid based treatment 2x a day, and Retin-A 2x a week.
I am interested in using the a Hair Regrowth System to combat male pattern baldness.
The helmet uses Low-Level Light Therapy (LLT), and I am wondering if the light emitted will worsen my melasma-- as per my dermatologist's advice to avoid sun/UV exposure.
I received a response from iRestore about this question, posted below, but I wanted to get a second opinion.
Thanks in advance.
"iRestore is a low-level light therapy (LLLT) that uses red light therapy which does not utilize harmful ultraviolet (UV) light which can damage skin and cause cells to mutate. Laser devices have a completely different wave length than UVA, so there is no relationship."
