How Does Capillus Laser Therapy Work To Treat Hair Loss?

Capillus laser therapy reverses the natural process of miniaturization in which the hair follicle weakens with each hair cycle, producing increasingly thinner hair until the follicle dies and ceases to produce hair. Laser therapy has been shown to be effective in stimulating and energizing the cells within the hair follicle, renewing the hair follicle for thicker, healthier hair.

Capillus brings options to those suffering from hair loss: physician consultations, laser therapy, hair care products, and quick fixes to conceal hair loss. We strive to be a resource of information to those looking for ways to deal with thinning hair and hair loss. While there may not yet be a cure for hair loss, we look for safe and effective ways to treat it.

The FDA-cleared CapillusPro (formerly the Capillus272 Pro), CapillusPlus (formerly the Capillus202), CapillusUltra (formerly the Capillus82) and Capillus OfficePro use safe, low-level lasers designed to energize hair follicles and spur new, natural hair growth. Capillus® laser therapy devices may be used as a stand-alone treatment for hair loss or in conjunction with topical foams, prescription medications, and hair transplant surgeries. The device and treatment protocol is cleared by the FDA to promote hair growth in adults with androgenetic alopecia (AGA) who have Ludwig-Savin Classifications of I-II or Norwood Hamilton classifications of IIa-V and Fitzpatrick Classification of Skin Phototypes I to IV. Capillus laser devices are used by hair restoration physicians around the world to treat both male and female patients with hair loss due to genetics, as well as for other indications which are yet to be studied.

“It’s kind of like sending your hair to the gym. It’s a bio-stimulatory therapy, in that it stimulates the hair cells to both stay in the growth phase longer, reenter the growth phase sooner, and stay out of the non-growth phase for as long as possible.”

Getting to the Root of the Problem

Sometimes, hair loss is genetic. Other times, it can be the result of trauma, intense stress, or a underlying medical condition. It might also be hormonal, occurring when DHT—a unique form of synthesized testosterone—spreads across the scalp and seeps into hair follicles. Although much is still unknown about what causes hair loss, science has shown that most hair loss conditions have a common denominator: Dysfunctional hair follicles.
Capillus® treats hair loss at the root of the problem. If an underlying cause for the hair loss has been ruled out, such as thyroid disease or anemia, Capillus laser devices may be the solution to reenergize the hair follicle. Utilizing state-of-the-art low-level laser technology, Capillus® is designed to leverage the power of phototherapy to energize and reawaken dysfunctional hair follicles. Phototherapy has a broad range of medical applications, and today it’s used by hair restoration physicians to help patients realize a fuller head of natural hair.
