• Female Pattern Baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia

    Is the most common form of hair loss in women. 4 out of 10 women experience hair loss by age 40, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Tens of millions of women are affected by hair loss in the United States alone, and more research and technologies are being developed in response. There are some treatments out there, like laser therapy and minoxidil, but the best thing that you can do is be proactive about your hair loss.

If you’re here that means you’ve noticed your hair thinning

Capillus offers industry-leading expertise and cutting-edge medical technology to help reverse the effects of androgenic alopecia.

Knowing more about your hair loss and what to expect in the future can help you figure out how to fight it effectively.

How to Identify:
Female Pattern Baldness

For women, there is a chart that you can use to help identify which stage of the hair loss process you are in. This scale is known as the Ludwig-Savin scale.

Female pattern baldness typically begins to appear around menopause. Hair starts to thin in the area where it's parted. Over time, hair becomes noticeably thinner and shorter, although complete baldness is rare in women.

Are there any non-surgical
options for treatment?

Surgeries can be very expensive. However, you’re in luck. There are a handful of non-surgical treatment options available for preventing and treating mild to moderate hair loss. This includes medications, topical solutions, and laser therapy devices.

  • Supplements
  • Laser Therapy

Cynatine HNS and DHT blockers are supplements that can help prevent hair loss. Cynatine HNS strengthens hair and gives it shine, while DHT blockers target a hormone linked to hair loss. Capillus offers both supplements, Capillus Hair Supplement and DHT Blocker, to help fight thinning hair.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) uses safe, low-energy lasers to help stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. The lasers penetrate the scalp and help increase blood flow to the hair follicles, providing them with the nutrients they need to grow healthy hair. We have a whole page on how that works, click here.

The Cap Is On

  • Your Scalp and Red Light
  • Mitochondria and Red Light
  • The Results

Within the mitochondria, red light stimulates an enzyme known as cytochrome c oxidase. This causes your mitochondria to produce more energy, or Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This extra energy enables the body to repair damaged tissues and sends vital nutrients to your hair follicles, restarting the growth process.

Red light can also cause your blood vessels to expand – increasing blood flow throughout your scalp. Pair this with the accelerated production of ATP; now, lots of energy and resources are available to grow new hair.

Used for just 6 minutes daily, Capillus can help grow new and healthier hair using clinically proven technology. For best results, combine our laser therapy caps with our Hair Care Kit and Capillus Minoxidil.

We’re Serious About Facts.

Are there clinical trials that support the efficacy of Capillus?

Yes. Capillus Laser devices only use clinically proven technology. In fact, the premiere laser therapy cap model from Capillus - the CapillusPro model - has been proven effective through an independently reviewed clinical trial for which results have been published in an esteemed medical journal, Dermatologic Surgery. Dermatologic Surgery is a monthly peer-reviewed journal published by American Society for Dermatologic Surgery that deals with the subject matter of dermatology.

The CapillusPro device has been clinically proven in a double-blind clinical study registered on ClinicalTrials.gov and managed by a neutral third party.* Clinical trial data indicated that low-level laser treatment of the scalp for 17 weeks with the CapillusPro device significantly improved hair counts by 51% in study participants who used the active (non-placebo) device. Subjects were able to use the device on a self-treatment, home-use basis. No side-effects of any kind were reported from clinical trial participants. The CapillusPro was proven to be a safe and effective treatment for androgenic alopecia within the appropriate stages of hair loss and skin tones as per FDA clearance.

Please note that the results mentioned above are specifically for the CapillusPro model. There have been no clinical trials to date on the other Capillus models to be able to assert an exact percent of average increase of hair.

*See details of clinical trials at ClinicalTrials.gov

There have also been many other clinical trials that support the efficacy of low-level laser technology for treatment of androgenetic alopecia.

Is Capillus good for use after hair transplant procedures?

Yes, Capillus uses safe, low-level lasers to stimulate, energize, and renew cells within the hair follicle for thicker, healthier hair. It also helps those who’ve undergone a hair transplant procedure to protect the new hair growth. Follow your transplant physician's directions for follicle support after transplant.

Are Capillus products safe for women?

Yes. Unlike some prescription medications for hair loss, Capillus low-level laser therapy (LLLT) products are safe for use by women.

In fact, the convenience and effectiveness of personal LLLT products makes the Capillus products the first choice among many hair restoration surgeons who treat women suffering with thinning, shedding, or balding.

What is the difference between lasers and LEDs for hair regrowth?

Capillus laser therapy devices use only medical grade laser diodes as a light source. What does this mean? You get the right amount of light energy exactly where you need it. Capillus uses lasers because the output penetrates deeper, better and is clinically proven to be therapeutic for their specific purpose.

Laser light does not spread as much as LEDs over the same distance, which allows lasers to penetrate tissue to a deeper level with higher concentration. For photobiomodulation therapy, the farther the light is from the target, the less intense and less effective the treatment will be.

For light therapy to be effective, it needs to reach the cells that respond well to photobiomodulation therapy.

LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulation of Emitted Radiation. This simply means that a source of light is amplified within a gain medium and emitted in a specific way. LASER produces a very intense beam of light which has the following properties:

  • Monochromatic (meaning it consists of one wavelength)
  • Coherent (meaning all parts are in phase)
  • Collimated (meaning all parts travel in one and same direction)

LED stands for Light-emitting Diode. And it’s pretty much just that. A diode that emits light when electricity passes through it. Often in pretty colors.

LED light can produce collimated light (with a focusing lens) but not coherent light thus they do not concentrate all their power in a coherent beam. Laser diodes by definition produce effective collimated and coherent light output.
