When it comes to treating male- and female-pattern baldness, there are a number of options available throughout the market. If diagnosis by your physician has shown that your diet may be to blame, you should be able to reverse whatever hair loss has taken place by cleaning up your diet—whether this includes reducing processed foods for natural or adding nutritional supplements to your diet, such as folic acid or iron. If your hair loss has been brought about by chronic bouts of stress, hair loss can be lessened by decreasing overall stress, whether that involves practicing mindfulness activities, attending therapy, or beginning medication.
Regarding scalp treatments, many people will rely on medicated salves that are applied to the top of the head, which will help to stop hair from getting thinner and promoting regrowth. The usefulness of these products can be mixed, but it particularly depends on the specific product. However, there has been another treatment method that has grown into prominence in recent years. Provided by Capillus LLC through their hair loss caps, this treatment method is known as low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT).
Clinical studies have shown that LLLT is particularly useful in treating hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia. Accepted theories among LLLT innovators is that lasers within the visible wavelength help to positively affect the stem cells that cause hair growth—i.e., this treatment activates cytochrome c oxidase, increased mitochondrial electron transport to increase ATP within the scalp, which reverses hair follicles from their dormant to active stages of growth.
Devices cleared by the FDA for LLLT are meant to promote hair growth in males who have Norwood Hamilton Classifications of IIa to V and in females who have Ludwig (Savin) I-4, II-1, II-2. We recommend anyone using LLLT devices to consult a physician before use, as they can effectively determine the stage of hair loss.
Capillus’ caps are designed to have a high-concentration of laser diodes to effectively treat the scalp, allowing for an overlap in emitted laser light to provide the highest activation of the scalp. Our FDA-cleared, USA-made LLLT laser hair restoration caps rely on the high number of light elements to allow for maximum coverage and increased treatment. Our product line ranges from standard treatment methods, including the Capillus82, which features 82 laser diodes to the CapillusPro—this cap contains 272 light elements.
These portable hair regrowth devices make it easy to perform treatment either at home or on the go. With a slim, ergonomic battery pack and an inconspicuous design, you can easily undergo the 6-minutes-a-day recommended treatment without it affecting your plans, whether those include work, traveling, or taking care of dinner for your family.
