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.

Understanding LPT and LLLT (laser phototherapy and low level laser therapy)

There are three very important aspects of LPT to consider.  1) Wavelength 2) Dosage 3) Delivery

Wavelength, the higher the wavelength (red light) the deeper the penetration. This means that at 680nm vs 650nm (competitors) we can get much deeper and stimulate the hair follicles.

Delivery – everyone is at around 5mm, but our LASERS are proprietary and are made here in the US, vs ALL competitors are made in China, our LASERS provide low divergence beams of light for maximum penetration.  Our competitors uses a very high divergent beam which does not penetrate the scalp.

Dose – We have the best dosage schedule at 2x – 20 minutes, our lasers deliver the ideal energy dosage with absolutely no heat delivered to the scalp, unfortunately, the competitors devices run warm to hot which heat is not the mechanism of action for growing hair.

Lastly, our device is very convenient, you don’t have to move it around, by just wearing it for 20 minutes you get full scalp coverage and we deliver much more energy to the scalp than any of our competitors.  This device in made in the US and was designed by a NASA scientist.

What are the benefits of low level laser therapy (LLLT)?

With the correct power, wavelength, concentration and depth of penetration, Laser Phototherapy uses photochemical stimulation in a manner analogous to photosynthesis in plants, or in the case of humans, how we use sunlight helps us manufacture Vitamin D. LPT penetrates the skin and excites cells, initiate a reaction that triggers healing.

LPT has demonstrated the ability in decrease hair loss by:

  1. increasing blood flow to the scalp;
  2. decreasing inflammation of the scalp
  3. stimulating cell metabolism.

All of these factors contribute to restoring the body’s natural healing process by rebalancing the biochemical processes that nurture hair follicles and stimulate hair growth. Results will vary with different people depending on the severity of their hair loss, their personal physiological responsiveness to the treatment, their genetic makeup, and their underlying medical conditions, should they have any. LPT has been proven, through multiple clinical trials, to achieve the following:

  • Reduce or prevent hair loss
  • Return 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.

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.
