This is a recent "Obscure Patent of the Week" entry from a favorite site of mine, IPWatchdog. An excerpt: "This invention is a method of stimulating the hair follicles through the use of radiation. The radiation in question is a light source. Performing the method essentially requires the arrangement of at least two essentially parallel rows of light sources, which are then moved repeatedly over the area of skin to be treated in order to create a pulsating stimulation of the hair follicles." I just knew they'd figure this out someday.
