LaserCap uses 224 laser diodes at 650nm wavelengths that output low level laser therapy (LLLT) to the scalp. The LLLT has the following effects:
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!
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.
Treatment time is 36 minutes every other day.
Most patients will see results of hair stabilization and hair regrowth between 4-6 months.
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.
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.
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.
