What Is Laser Hair Therapy?
There are various reasons why a person may lose hair during their lifetime: genetics, disease, medications, stress, or the dreaded unavoidable aging. The average person may lose up to 125 hairs per day. Hair loss/baldness can begin as early as the teens or 20s in both men and women. By age 50, the majority of men and nearly half of all women are affected by some degree of hair loss. What can be done for this concerning issue? Laser hair therapy is an advanced non-invasive, non-surgical, and pain-free technique to treat thinning hair, hair loss, and baldness. The advantages of laser hair regrowth have been enjoyed since 1964 when it was discovered that the hair regrowth process can be stimulated with low-level laser light therapy (LLLT).
The benefits of laser hair therapy include:
- Stimulation of hair regrowth
- Reduction of further hair loss
- Thicker, fuller hair regrowth
- Improvement in the overall health and quality of hair.
What Is the Capillus Laser Hair Cap?
The Capillus® laser hair cap is a type of laser hair therapy designed for quick and convenient use at home. The system is concealed in a baseball-type cap with a flexible design that goes unnoticed as you carry out everyday activities such as working, walking, exercising, driving, errands, etc. The Capillus laser hair cap is a thinning hair treatment that both men and women can utilize for laser hair regrowth. This form of laser hair restoration can be used as a stand-alone thinning hair treatment or, under the supervision of a physician, can be used as a treatment to complement other forms of thinning hair treatment such as over-the-counter or prescription medications like minoxidil (Rogaine®) or finasteride (Propecia®) and/or hair transplant surgery.
How Does the Capillus Laser Cap Work?
Capillus laser hair therapy utilizes energy in the form of photons aimed at the scalp to excite and awaken hibernating hair follicles. It is this type of LLLT that improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicle, fueling the natural regrowth of thicker and fuller hair. Patients have the option of wearing the Capillus laser cap for 30 minutes every other day or for 6 minutes per day to achieve laser hair regrowth, as much as 20% of hair volume in some cases. The Capillus laser hair therapy system works best in the initial stages of hair loss, and the earlier you start this thinning hair treatment, the more likely your chances of success. It is important to remember that, like with all hair growth treatments, results can vary from person to person. This is why you should have realistic expectations, as laser hair restoration via the Capillus system does not represent a “magic bullet” for hair loss/baldness. Capillus laser hair therapy could take as long as 3 to 6 months of continuous use before providing any meaningful hair regrowth.
How Is the Capillus Laser Cap Different from Other Hair Loss Treatments?
Laser treatment for hair loss with the Capillus laser cap has been proven safe and effective. Unlike other forms of LLLT for laser hair restoration that are administered via rigid means, the Capillus laser hair therapy system provides full coverage and consistent exposure during treatments. Compared to other forms of thinning hair treatment, the Capillus laser cap is non-invasive, non-surgical, pain-free, and has no known side effects. Because the Capillus laser treatment for hair loss is hands-free, combing the hair is not required, and there are no messy solutions or topical/oral medications to administer.
