Radio Frequency

I am looking for some guidance on purchasing a radio frequency machine for my home use. I am not sure what megahertz strength I need to have in order produce good results. Also, what type of watts strength does the machine need to have to be powerful enough.
Thank you

I’m interested in a laser hair transplant.

Question: How does a laser hair transplant surgery work?

Answer: The term laser has been unfortunately a bit romanticized in terms of what it claims it can do.  I personally believe that laser hair restoration is not a viable treatment method, as it causes undue thermal damage when making the recipient sites or “holes” unnecessarily.  I attend every major meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery and have not heard anything about laser hair transplant surgery in years.  That being said, I know about “low level lasers” that are used to help regenerate hair and to help with recovery after a hair transplant procedure.  Again, I do not personally use LLLs because I do not believe there is sufficient science to back this technology up.  However, I believe some of my trusted colleagues are seeing nice results that help support their hair restoration work.
