Policies & Disclaimers

Disclaimer and Terms of Use
The information provided on this website and our literature are intended for informational purposes only. The information provided on this site is designed to support, not replace, the relationship between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician. Information and opinions expressed on this website may be those of the thinning hair experts and thinning hair professionals who have written them based on their education, experiences, and over 34 years of work at the HLCC and our parent company.

The information provided should be examined in the light of individual case evaluations by local doctors. The website developers, HLCC, and its affiliated companies take no responsibility whatsoever for the consequences experienced by the patients who may use the information provided on this website. HLCC and our thinning hair experts and hair loss team assure you of the best possible efforts for those who apply for online solutions. However, please note that we do not claim to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate, or prevent any disease or, illness nor do we guarantee any magical cure. The products and the claims made about specific products and hair loss programs and rs on this site have not been evaluated by HLCC or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate, or prevent any disease or, illness. Results vary by person. Before using any information or products, you should consult with your physician. It is considered that the user has read and agreed to this disclaimer when one uses the information or literature on this site and the online treatment option. HLCC makes no claims about any of the lasers or products it sells. The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the medical laser device the HairMax LaserCombs and many others are now clinically proven to promote hair growth in males with androgenetic alopecia (Norwood IIA to V with Fitzpatrick skin types I to IV)To view FDA’s public record of this clearance visit http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/pdf10/K103368.pdf. * Check with the FDA for the list of others. The FDA approves drugs such as Minoxidil and gives clearance for devices such as the HairMax LaserComb, Theradome, iGrow, etc. and we include those products and lasers and other FDA-approved drugs (Minoxidil) in our programs. Although proven in 1,000+ locations worldwide none of our programs are, by themselves, approved by the FDA only the individual items within those programs may be. Should you find a mistake on this site or elsewhere where it refers to a program with a laser or that a laser was approved by the FDA it is in error and should read a laser that with FDA Clearance not approved and again refers only to laser mentioned above or with the FDA. The only topical Minoxidil approved by the FDA to grow hair is Rogaine® and its exact generic equivalents. Although we have found our products to be effective in our 1,000+ locations, they are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate, or prevent any disease or, illness, including hair loss in any way. The affiliated program and distributor sales are available other than in the Greater Capital District. See your Hair Loss consultant for further details of specials.

Further Hair Regrowth and Stopping Thinning Hair Disclaimer

All HLCC locations or affiliated clinics offer thinning hair solutions programs and laser thinning hair programs that can include Rogaine, generic 5% Minoxidil, and the HairMax Laser comb, etc., each proven to regrow in certain cases. All mentions of hair growth, stopping thinning hair, and anything other than changing the appearance of hair to appear fuller, thicker, and healthier-looking are related only to the programs that include those products. All other products are cosmetic and do not claim to re-grow hair and stop thinning hair. To be clear it does not matter how effective or for that matter ineffective a product is if it is not clear as a medical device (like the MEP-90 and Hairmax® Lasercomb and many others, or FDA-approved like 5% Minoxidil or Propecia®) it is cosmetic and we don’t and no one can claim it can change the body and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate or prevent any disease or illness.

 

No Medical Training or implication of you being able to provide Medical Treatments Hair Loss Practitioner, Hair Loss Specialist, Associate Trichologist, Trichologist, etc. are Industry terms, referred to by many within the Cosmetic and Beauty Industries.  By no means does HLCC or USTI® imply that you are participating in any form of medical training or training to provide medical services and/or practices to your clients, by your participation in our business development training seminars.  Anyone seeing a Hair Loss Practitioner, Hair Loss Specialist, Associate Trichologist, or Trichologist agrees they understand that although these people may or may not have great knowledge about thinning hair they are in no way medical nor should their advice be considered anything but cosmetic advice.

Please check your local, county, state, and Country Laws and legal requirements to provide any services that may be referenced in our seminars.
