Laser Cap (Low Level Light Therapy) Hair Restoration

Hair loss is a common problem for men, and for many women as well. Hair loss can reduce your confidence, make you look older, and change your appearance in a way you don’t like. Because this concern is a long-standing issue that affects millions, there is a wide range of products, treatments, and procedures to help resolve and reverse hair loss. Laser Cap stands out as a cutting-edge treatment that requires no surgery, no invasive measures, and no medication. Yet it produces effective results.

What happens during a Laser Cap treatment?

Laser Cap is a simple, painless procedure. The Laser Cap device fits over your head, and the red light beams pass over the scalp for a period of time, lasting about 30 minutes.

Continuing treatments are required to produce lasting results. It will take about two months to achieve your initial results, and these results will continue to improve over the following months. 

This treatment works best on men or women in the early stages of hair loss who have noticed their hair is getting thinner and weaker. Laser Cap works well on its own, but it is also easily paired with other treatments. 

What is a Laser Cap?

Laser Cap is a device that utilizes low-level laser therapy (LLLT). LLLT uses laser light to boost and renew cellular function in the hair follicles, using red light waves to trigger healthy hair growth. 

First discovered by a team of cancer researchers who were surprised to see the hair of the mice they were working with begin to grow quickly, LLLT has now been the subject of thousands of clinical studies. Application of LLLT increases circulation and promotes stem growth in the area it’s applied to, and it has been shown to help heal wounds, prevent tissue damage, and greatly restore hair.

When LLLT is applied to the scalp where the balding or thinning area is, the increased blood flow and oxygen strengthen the hair follicles and make them healthier. The hair follicles are stimulated to start producing thicker hairs again, and the increased metabolic activity further boosts hair growth. LLLT also helps block the production of DHT, the hormone that causes hair loss. This unique device is one of the few options Dr. Cappuccino provides for hair restoration in Maryland. 

How Does It Work?

LaserCap uses Low-Level-Laser Therapy (LLLT), to re-energize inactive hair follicles, Red laser light is absorbed by specialized  cells deep within the follicle, providing energy to enhance cellular respiration and hair growth. As a result, follicles become awakened from their inactive state and produce thicker, healthier hair. LLLT is a safe and effective treatment for both male and female pattern hair loss, proven in numerous high quality clinical trials.

Did You Know?

LaserCap delivers a higher dose of energy per treatment than other comparable devices. Many of these devices in fact deliver a dose of energy well below what experts consider to be optimal.

Pulsed Wave Emission

The key to LaserCap's prescription-strength treatment is pulsed wave light emission. This is a fancy way of saying LaserCap turns off and on its lasers many times per second during a treatment, causing them to blink, or flicker. Doing so allows the laser diodes to cool during the fraction of a second when they switch off. As a result, LaserCap is able to deliver higher levels of energy without excessive build-up of heat.
