Frontal hair loss, hair loss at the front


Often hair loss begins in the frontal region. There is a misconception that the frontal region is the most difficult to grow back. This is due to the fact that previously prescription medications and topical applications were FDA cleared to show efficacy for hair growth, but only in the crown region. Theradome has been shown to regrow hair in the frontal region for users with early hair loss, as well as other regions. It’s always best to start using laser hair therapy as soon as you notice a problem, but later stages of hair loss can also be helped.

How hair growth is stimulated using light


A healthy terminal hair’s base sits between 3 and 5 millimetres below the surface area of the skin. Our VL680 red laser light reaches this depth to stimulate damaged hair follicle cells, thus enabling miniaturized hairs to begin growing again.

Understanding low level laser therapy and laser phototherapy


There are three very important aspects of LPT or LLLT to consider – wavelength, dosage, and delivery.

Wavelength: The higher the wavelength (red light) the deeper the penetration. This means that at around 680nm (what Theradome uses) vs 650nm (what other companies use), we can get much deeper and more effectively stimulate hair follicles.

Dosage: Our dosage schedule requires just two 20-minute sessions per week because our lasers deliver extremely targeted wavelengths that produce no heat. Other devices on the market tend to run warm to hot, which requires them to reduce laser output so you’re not receiving the full benefits of treatments.

Delivery: Our proprietary VL680 lasers made in the US provide targeted wavelengths delivered with low divergences beams for maximum scalp penetration, unlike other products with high divergent beams that do not travel deep enough to penetrate the scalp.

Theradome’s laser quality and quantity of lasers


The quality of lasers is more important than the quantity of lasers. Theradome’s medical grade lasers deliver 5x more dosage than caps containing 200-300 lasers. Our proprietary VL680 lasers are made in the US at the superior wavelength of 680 nanometers. This means that we can get much deeper and stimulate the hair follicle 2.5x more than at 650nm. This delivers faster and much better results for keeping and growing your hair back.

Theradome lasers penetrate up to 5mm into the scalp with cool lasers. They continuously deliver the optimum dosage throughout each 20-minute treatment session. Laser caps pulse on and off because of the heat they generate and pulsing interrupts treatment reducing scalp penetration to 0.5mm.

Using Theradome after micro-needling


Micro-needling is using a roller with hundreds of needles. The roller is rolled on the scalp causing micro injuries to the scalp that promotes forced healing to the micro wound sites.  Sometimes a product to promote hair growth might be applied to the open wound for better absorption. Using Theradome before this treatment will prepare the scalp and reduce shock loss.

Are Theradome lasers safe and is there any danger?


The lasers in the Theradome are of a red color, part of the visible spectrum of light. They are not intense enough to cause damage to the eyes. Since the lasers are very bright, a three-step safety system has been implemented. This prevents laser light from accidentally shining into your eyes. If you intentionally defeat this system, the lasers will still cause no harm, but we do not recommend staring into your Theradome for any reason.

What are hair removal lasers and how do they work?


Lasers used for hair removal are completely different from those used in Laser Phototherapy: they are lasers that kill hair follicles with heat, since burning or damaging a hair follicle is required for its death. On the contrary, lasers used for hair growth are COLD lasers: they produce relatively low levels of light, and do not produce significant heat when manufactured correctly.

Understanding photochemistry and the 680 nanometer wavelength


The secret behind Theradome is the following.  Light must be absorbed by a chromophore (which gives a molecule its color) to initiate a photochemical effect and to ultimately have a biological effect on hair. This is the first law of photochemistry.  Light must hit this chromophore to prompt the engine of the cell, called the mitochondria, to start working again.  If laser light is not 680-nanometers, the process of converting light energy into chemical energy to repair the hair follicle does not occur.

 

What is the origin of low level laser therapy?


What is the origin of low level laser therapy? Who really invented laser therapy?  In 1965, Hungarian Physician Dr. Endre Mester was testing the effects of lasers on mice. To allow for easier penetration, he shaved the mice’s hair. He soon noticed that hair on mice grew back much quicker than mice unexposed to laser light. Curious, Dr. Mester soon discovered that his assistant had accidentally turned the laser power down to a very low capacity. This emitted a cold or “low-level” laser. Today, Dr. Mester is recognized as the father of Low-Level Light Therapy, otherwise called Laser Phototherapy.

What results does low level laser therapy for hair (LLLT) produce?


Low Level Laser Therapy for hair LLLT (or LPT) is a proven hair los solution. Through multiple clinical trials, is has been shown to achieve the following:

  • Reduce or prevent hair loss
  • Return weak, vellus hair to a natural, healthy terminal hair state
  • Increase the thickness of hair
  • Promote new hair growth

All of these factors can contribute to a fuller, thicker and more vibrant head of hair.  Low Level Laser Therapy for hair was first developed in 1967. LLLT promots wound healing and reduces inflammation. It works through the photostimulation of cells involved in the human body’s repair process. Unlike industrial lasers that use high heat, low-level laser light, which comprises cool or cold lasers, does not cut, burn or otherwise damage human tissue. And unlike common light bulbs or LED lights, laser light does not disperse. The ability to concentrate cold laser light within a small diameter allows the light to focus its energy on a specific target.
