Capillus® Laser Therapy for Hair Loss Arrives at Dermatology and Hair Restoration Specialists

Dr. Sean Behnam now offers low level laser therapy (LLLT) to men and women who suffer with androgenetic alopecia, or hair loss, at Dermatology and Hair Restoration Specialists in Santa Monica, California.


“I see a lot of hair loss patients," explains Dr. Behnam, founder and lead surgeon at Dermatology & Hair Restoration Specialists. "A lot of them want hair restoration, but unfortunately most of the patients I see are not candidates for hair transplant[…] A lot of them are just experiencing rapid shedding or just have some thinning. We do have a lot of medications at our disposal, but most of the time patients just don’t want to take oral or topical medications. This is where lasers come in."

Low level laser therapy, or LLLT, has been shown to stop the progression of hair loss by stimulating important cells deep within the hair follicle. Through ongoing LLLT exposure, hair follicles experience an increase in blood flow, which ultimately delivers more oxygen and natural growth factors directly to the root of each strand of hair. Hair loss experts like Dr. Behnam recommend patients undergo laser therapy for at least 30 minutes, every other day, to stop hair loss and encourage new growth.

Like all other methods of non-surgical hair restoration, consistent use is vital for long term results. Physicians refer to this critical make-or-break factor as "patient compliance." According to Dr. Behnam, the mobile and hands-free design of the Capillus272™ Pro is ideal. In a video interview, Dr. Behnam explains "[Capillus] has more laser diodes than in-office devices. People can place it on their heads and walk around and perform chores. They’re not locked down, and this increases compliance. By increasing compliance, patients end up having better results."

To ensure exceptional patient results, Dr. Behnam takes microscopic digital pictures and hair follicle photographs before patients begin laser hair restoration with Capillus272™ Pro. Follow up photographs are taken every 3 months to monitor progress, helping Dr. Behnam create a personalized treatment plan that evolves with patient needs.

Patients at all levels of hair loss can benefit from the [Capillus] laser hat," says Dr. Behnam. "I recommend it to patients who are experiencing rapid shedding or just have some thinning and even after hair restoration. I recommend it to maintain one’s own care of natural hair."
