In this latest laser cap showdown, we'll compare Capillus vs. LaserCap. Read on for an in-depth but friendly assessment of two of the best brands on the market.
How Low-Level Laser Therapy Works and Why It's Effective
Before comparing laser hair growth systems, we'd suggest it's a good idea to at least have a basic understanding of the core technology that makes them effective. Let's spend a few minutes getting to grips with the science and benefits behind low-level laser therapy.
Low-level lasers work by emitting light that penetrates the scalp without heat or pain and stimulates hair follicles. The light energizes weakened follicles on a cellular level, improving function and blood flow. This spurs dormant follicles into an active growth phase.
Low-level lasers can improve hair density and growth rate in both men and women suffering from androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness. While low-level laser therapy cannot revive dead follicles, it can strengthen and revitalize partially diminished ones.
The biggest benefit of low-level lasers is that you get drug-free hair regrowth with lasting results. The treatment is non-invasive and safe when FDA-cleared devices are used as directed. Now that we understand the technology let's see how Capillus and LaserCap incorporate it into their laser hair systems.
Capillus and LaserCap Device Options
Capillus Laser Caps
We offer an industry-leading 9 low-level laser therapy options. The more choices they have, the more our customers can find the best laser cap to fit their needs and budget.
At the high end, we offer the CapillusPro S1 featuring 304 laser diodes to deliver maximum hair regrowth potential. At the lower end is the most affordable option, the CapillusOne, with 112 diodes. In between, we have a broad selection of devices- you can compare our complete laser cap collection here.
For those with localized thinning or receding areas, Capillus also provides targeted laser caps. The Capillus Focal series (all offering 84 Laser Diodes) concentrates light on specific zones like the temples, frontal medial region, or crown. By focusing on hair loss hotspots, these caps pinpoint intense laser power where you need it most.
In all models, Capillus uses an ergonomic baseball cap design for comfort and subtlety. The low-profile style allows conveniently wearing the caps during everyday activities without drawing attention. The lightweight fabric and adjustable fit of the laser caps make them easy to integrate into your routine at home, work, or when out and about.
The LaserCap brand offers customers three low-level laser therapy options depending on their needs. For those in the early stages of hair loss, the LaserCap SD provides a gentle 80 diodes of light energy to target thinning and jumpstart regrowth.
Stepping up, the LaserCap HD includes 224 laser diodes to deliver more intense photonic stimulation for moderate to advanced thinning. At the top end, the LaserCap HD+ packs 304 diodes for maximum coverage across the scalp, making it LaserCap's most powerful hair growth option.
Like Capillus, the LaserCap device has an inconspicuous baseball cap design. This stealthy, low-profile look allows unassuming wear during daily activities. Its low-key sporty style means laser therapy can be part of your routine virtually anywhere.
With our laser caps, we've always had bragging rights about the short but highly effective treatment times. A Capillus therapy session takes just 6 minutes once daily, which is extremely easy to fit into your routine. Wear your laser cap while making breakfast, on your daily commute, or catching up on social media. The automatic timer will also switch off once your treatment has ended, so one less thing to think about.
LaserCap recommends 30 minutes every other day, so it requires a bit more commitment. But at least the sporty, low-profile design allows for it to be worn pretty much anywhere without standing out from the crowd.
But consistency is needed if you expect results from either system. Skipping too many treatments can render therapy unproductive.
Consider which treatment duration you can realistically commit to long-term. Our Capillus caps make it easy with quick 6-minute protocols.
LaserCap expects more dedication with half-hour every-other-day sessions. But sticking to the schedule recommended for your chosen system is how you'll combat hair loss.
Both Capillus and LaserCap back their products with responsive customer service teams to provide guidance and support. Their experts are available to answer questions, troubleshoot any issues, and make sure you get the most out of your laser hair cap.
