How Is Capillus Better Than Our Competitors?


We know you have options. Hair growth technology is expensive and the choice you make is not one to be taken lightly.

First of all, we know you are doing your research, and you are correct in doing so: not all low-level laser therapies (LLLT) are equal. In this hair growth medical field, words like “light technology” (LED’s, infrared light) and “laser diode technology” are often interchanged for sales and marketing purposes, aiming to mislead the consumer on a highly complex topic.

There are competitor devices that sell for hundreds of dollars less than ours, but most of these mix LEDs or infrared bulbs with laser diodes to increase the number of lights on their devices. No association or agency is responsible for correcting these misleading messages being sold to consumers, which makes matters more confusing.

The first way to know what you are buying is by looking at the price points. If the device has 100s of lights but is less than $200, chances are there is most of those lights that are NOT medical-grade laser diodes.

These “language” details matter at the time of your research because you want your money to be justified, and your hair story to be the best it can be. Why pay $300 for lights that do not perform as well as laser diodes?

If it’s a financial decision, that’s one thing, but if you want to explore your options, do so with all the information you need to make the best choice. Here at Capillus, we offer affirm financing*, which is a great option to pay as you grow, using the best technology available.

Why Laser Diodes Are Better for Hair Restoration than LED’s or Infrared Light

The depth of light penetration on the scalp is EVERYTHING for hair restoration and low-level laser treatments, especially home use devices. Laser diode light is cohesive, which means direct, like a laser pointer. LEDs and infrareds are made up of scattered light, and then a lens is put on it to “direct” the light. Even with the lens, this scattered light will never reach the depths of the laser diode bulb and will not provide the same results in the same amount of time.
