For the treatment of hair loss, an electronic device is used to apply the cold laser to the scalp so as to stimulate red blood cells.

Dear Sirs

I live in London and would like to know, if I can go and see the product in person, before I consider buying.

Please could you suggest a ‘show’ that may be due in and around London for me to consider purchase the product, which can be seen in action and there may be a choice of supplier in the UK, if possible in London.

Many thanks.

Rachhpaul.
