Lasercap for Hairloss

How does the laser work?

LaserCap uses 224 laser diodes at 650nm wavelengths that output low level laser therapy (LLLT) to the scalp. The LLLT has the following effects:

  1. Increased scalp blood flow and microcirculation
  2. Increases nutrient supply to enhance hair growth
  3. Stimulates and accelerates hair growth
  4. Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
  5. Reduces the binding of excess levels of skin 5 alpha reductase and DHT which contribute to genetic thinning
  6. Relieves scalp conditions such as psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, itchy/scaling scalp (anti-inflammatory properties)
  7. Normalizes sebum production (also increases production in under activity and dryness and decreases production in over activity or greasiness)
  8. Reduces tight, tender scalp

LaserCap is a non-chemical, non-invasive, pain-free treatment that can be applied almost anywhere, anytime. The LaserCap includes the rechargeable battery pack and A/C power adapter for charging. The battery pack means total cordless freedom during treatment. Charge the battery, clip it to your clothes, put on the hat, flip the switch and voila!

What are the results?

Patients should notice a reduction in hair loss. As expected with other sources of LLLT, hair regrowth can occur in as early as 6 months. LLLT will help the hairs to become thicker, stronger, and more dense.

How often is the treatment?

Treatment time is 36 minutes every other day.

Is it safe

Yes.

Does it hurt?

Absolutely not.

When will I see results?

Most patients will see results of hair stabilization and hair regrowth between 4-6 months.

Can this treatment be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes. Laser hair growth patients can be on oral or topical medications, as well as using certain shampoos/ conditioners meant for hair loss/thinning. In some cases, our doctor may suggest using Propecia or Minoxidil in combination with your treatment.

The excellent effects of LLLT on scalp and hair health make it an excellent addition for pre-operative and post-operative treatment when undergoing Hair Restoration procedures.

Who is a good candidate for treatment?

As long as there are living follicles in the area to be treated the laser can be effective in stabilizing and rejuvenating the hair. This laser can work on male or female, and any race or skin color. If the follicles are completely dead and the patient is completely bald then unfortunately this laser is not the right treatment for them.

What is the next step?

Call to make an appointment with one of our doctors. At your appointment, we will review your medical history, focus on the history of your hair loss, examine your scalp and determine if the LaserCap treatment is appropriate for you. We will outline the costs and options for payments but you are under no obligation to purchase anything.

You can expect your consultation to last about 30 minutes during which time we will answer any lingering questions you have, and determine if any further testing or treatments are required.

We look forward to seeing you at Laser Away.
