What Makes the Best Laser Hair Treatment?

What makes the best laser hair treatment effective? For years, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been regarded as one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for hair loss. Consumers have a variety of products to choose from, including laser combs, in-office laser “dome” devices, and at-home laser therapy caps. There are several factors to consider when shopping for a laser therapy product. The most critical include safety and effectiveness, two common benchmarks that consumers most often use to measure value. But when it comes to finding the best laser treatments for hair loss, it is equally important to consider how endorsements from physicians, ease of product use, and overall product design help (or inhibit) natural results.

Characteristics of the Best Laser Hair Treatments

Safety. Never use a hair treatment if you are uncertain of how safe it is. Safety—both for you and for those around you—is the #1 factor to consider when purchasing medical devices. After all, is it really worthwhile if it is damaging to your health and well-being?

Effectiveness. Safety alone is not enough. When looking for the best laser hair treatment option, it is vital to choose a product that is effective within a reasonable time frame. Always verify claims made by the manufacturer as well. For example, Capillus272™ Pro has shown the ability to increase hair count by up to 51% compared to placebo device—a finding that is verifiable by independently published studies on ClinicalTrials.gov.

Physician Endorsement. When it comes to treating hair loss, no one knows more about safe and effective treatment modalities than hair restoration surgeons. These professionals are licensed experts in the field, and many actively research hair loss and methods of treatment. Watch physician testimonials to better understand how they feel about the laser treatment, and use their endorsements as a guide to selecting a product that will be best.

Ease of Use. One thing that the best laser hair treatments all have in common: They are easy to use. Life gets hectic, and no one has time for complicated or time-consuming hair loss treatments. We’ve designed the Capillus272™ Pro and Capillus82™ with this in mind, offering portable laser therapy caps that can be used almost anywhere for just 6 minutes every day.

Ergonomics. One thing that drastically improves ease-of-use is ergonomics. Ergonomic design is a way of building a product so that it can be easily and efficiently used. This is a big reason why Capillus® laser therapy products are so popular among physicians and patients. No other laser therapy cap provides better coverage across the top, rear, and sides of the scalp. Better coverage and a more ergonomic fit combine to deliver even laser exposure across the scalp, significantly improving treatment and results.

Hair is made up of proteins called keratins, and it grows from follicles underneath the skin. Although every strand of hair on the human body goes through the hair growth cycle, each hair grows independently of the other.

The hair growth cycle occurs in three main phases: the Anagen (growing) phase, which lasts 2 to 6 years, is when the hair is firmly attached to the hair root; the Catagen (transitional) phase lasts a few days and is when the hair stops growing and forms the basis for the next hair; and the Telogen (resting) phase which lasts 3 to 4 months and is when the hair sheds and causes the stem cells to move deeper in the dermis to start a new anagen phase.

People are born with approximately 5 million follicles on their body, and about 100,000 follicles on just the scalp. Regardless of where the hair is located on the body, all hairs undergo a similar growth cycle.
