The Leading Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Options

When it comes to hair loss treatment, you might be surprised to learn of the numerous non-surgical hair restoration methods outside of the traditional hair transplant. For some, these are the only possibilities for hair regrowth. Typically, women are not good candidates for hair surgery due to the diffuse pattern of thinning associated with female pattern hair loss (FHPL), a type of hereditary hair loss that affects approximately half of all women by the time they reach 50-years-old, according to the North American Hair Research Society. Even though men suffering from male-pattern baldness may be candidates for surgery, it may not be the best solution based on their lifestyle, budget or hair loss condition.

Consider the following non-surgical hair restoration solutions that could help you reverse thinning and achieve a thicker, more attractive head of hair:


Minoxidil, applied topically, was the very first hair restoration medication to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Prior to the discovery of its hair regrowth benefits, minoxidil was first used in pill form to treat patients with high blood pressure. After results revealed hair growth as a side effect, researchers began testing minoxidil as a topical hair loss treatment to be used on the scalp. Minoxidil works by dilating the blood vessels, increasing blood supply and feeding nutrients to inactive hair follicles. Although minoxidil is available for both men and women, the formulas are specified by sex. Women’s Rogaine, for instance, comes in a 5% foam or 2% topical solution. Men also have a few popular minoxidil products to choose from, but the method of application can be messy and imprecise. Capillus 5% Minoxidil for Men compares to Men’s Extra Strength Rogaine, less the inaccurate application and time-consuming cleanup. Rather, Capillus Minoxidil comes with a spray applicator that’s easy to apply and target only the areas of hair loss needing treatment.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, or LLLT as its commonly known, is a non-surgical hair restoration option proven to treat androgenic alopecia in both men and women. The different types of LLLT devices range from combs, in-office domes and laser caps. LLLT works by emitting medical-grade laser light to stimulate blood flow and energize inactive hair follicles. Like minoxidil, LLLT draws nutrients and growth stimulants to the source. By far the most convenient and targeted method of receiving laser therapy on the scalp is via a laser cap. Individuals suffering with hair loss can use Capillus laser caps on-the-go or at home, thanks to a portable and rechargeable battery. Our devices range from 82 diodes to the strongest 272 diode configuration. Whichever device you choose, optimal wear is 6 minutes, every day. There are no known side effects to laser therapy for hair loss, and you can even undergo LLLT alongside other non-surgical hair restoration methods.
