According to the relative amount of telogen-stage hair, subjects are categorized into 3 groups. (15~35%: - normal, 35~45%: serious, 45%~: very serious). They are divided again into 2 groups and treatments are applied on their head per once a week and twice a week, respectively. Effects of far IR and TDP are observed after 24 times of treatments. Hair-map is generated by a visual analyzing instrument connected to PC.A microscope on the instrument is used to check the increase/decrease of the number of hair.
