The LaserBand 82 by HairMax is a premier, cold laser device with a captivating design. It is the upgraded version of the popular LaserBand 41 by Hairmax (read my LaserBand 41 review here).
This crazy device looks like it’s straight out a science fiction film. But, in reality, it’s an FDA-cleared treatment for treat hair loss for both men and women.
Because the only other FDA-cleared treatments for hair loss are Minoxidil (for both men & women) and Propecia (for men only – this one’s FULL of awful side effects), lots of hair loss specialists have been jumping onto the laser treatment product bandwagon.
HairMax has brought some serious engineering game to the growing laser helmet and laser come industry. The 82 model is engineered for speed, effectiveness, comfort and ease of use.
How does the HairMax LaserBand 82 regrow hair?
Through photobiostimulation, the LaserBand 82 stimulates hair follicles at a cellular level to promote hair growth, reverse hair thinning, restore the natural growth cycle and helping to regrow denser, fuller hair.
The LaserBand 82 delivers therapeutic light energy through 82 medical-grade lasers (No LEDs).
HairMax laser devices utilize laser energy to stimulate the follicle to grow healthy new hair when you have androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern baldness or thinning hair.
The HairMax laser devices work directly on the hair follicle, to provide the energy needed to support healthy hair growth, by helping to increase blood circulation to the follicle, to increase circulation and remove waste products.
Why LaserBand 82, instead of more affordable options?
The LaserBand 82 offers unique band design incorporates patented hair parting teeth which part your hair during treatment to allow optimal laser light delivery to your follicles.
The 3 elements for efficacy – the hair parting teeth, laser light intensity and laser light density work in unison to provide a highly effective treatment for hair loss and thinning hair. Comfortable, portable and lightweight for home use or while traveling.
This band offers a streamlined, premium hair loss treatment that works quickly and comfortably to help you regrow hair.
This is the top-of-the-line offering from the best known name in hair loss laser treatments. It’s the Rolls Royce of laser helmets: only the best for your head, ladies and gents!!
Who can use the HairMax LaserBand 82?
Adult men and women are both candidates for the HairMax LaserBand 82, to regrow their hair and prevent future hair loss.
The best results will be for men and women in early or moderate stages of hair loss, where it has just started thinning or shedding.
The Hairmax LaserBand 82 is a great alternative for women experiencing overall thinning of hair after menopause.
My hair is totally gone, should I use the HairMax LaserBand 82?
It depends on your situation, of course, but the best outcomes will be for those with mild to moderate hair loss or temporary hair loss.
In the words of HairMax:
While the HairMax laser devices can ‘awaken’ dormant hair follicles, once the hair follicle is no longer functioning, it cannot be revitalized.
SIdebar: I really wish more people knew they needed to be AGGRESSIVE at the first signs of hair loss. Once it’s gone gone, it’s REALLY gone gone.
Only weakened or dormant follicles can be coaxed back to life and hair production; dead ones are just that: dead. 🙁
For those of us who have noticed thinning or have any suspicion that it will happen to us because of lovely genetics, it’s absolutely essential that we take action now.
We are lucky we live in a time and age when there are so many incredible hair loss treatments for women.

At this time, in spite of all of our incredible science and technology, the only permanent solution for hair loss is surgical. Hair loss surgery is a mixed bag for many reasons.
Speaking only for myself, I can always see when someone has hair plugs. I have also seen scalps where the procedure didn’t take and the patient is basically disfigured forever.
(Worth going down that google image wormhole, if you need to see what I’m talking about with hairplugs gone wrong.)
WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE:
Treating your hair loss and protecting your hair is a long-term commitment.
You have a choice: do nothing and simply accept that it will continue to thin and fall out, or do something today to arrest the hair loss and turn the tide toward regrowth.
HairMax LaserBand 82: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner
If you are intrigued by cold laser therapy but need a lower price point, consider trying a base model laser comb by HairMax (those start at $199).
If you are still put off by the price point for the LaserBand 82, here’s a challenge:
- Go through your statements and receipts and add up all the $ you’ve spent on shampoos, supplements, sprays, and other hair loss treatments over the last year.
- Is it higher than $800? My money says it is. If you’ve been serious about dealing with hair loss, chances are you’ve spent some serious money trying stuff out.
- Take that amount you’ve spent and multiply it by the amount of years remaining in your lifespan.
- NOW, compare that amount to the upfront one-time cost for a high-quality laser device. See which option makes more sense?
I know that may sound grim, but the reality is that any of these hair loss treatments have to be continued indefinitely for most of us.
