Can I use Theradome after Chemotherapy and will it help to regrow hair?


Results vary for each individual, but Theradome has been used by chemo induced hair loss patients with great success.

We have had great feedback from many patients who have achieved results re-activating dormant hair follicles which have been affected by chemo treatments. Since there is nothing out there that has been developed specifically for chemotherapy-induced hiccups (CIH), we are excited about this potential new application. If you have any questions about this potential treatment, there are a few great clinical trials with LPT (laser phototherapy and CIH) that you can reference. We recommend contacting your physician regarding usage of our device with your condition.

How does Theradome deal with Telogen Effluvium?


Telogen effluvium is a form of temporary hair loss that usually happens after stress, a shock, or a traumatic event. The Theradome can definitely slow down your hair loss. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is the only treatment in the world that can slow down hair loss. We do recommend that you contact your physician to understand the underlying reason for your hair loss.

Can I use Theradome with dermatitis, eczema and inflammation?


Many of our customers have indicated that Theradome has helped their scalp with various inflammatory scalp conditions. These include seborrheic dermatitis (SD) since laser light improves the function of impaired cells caused by inflammatory conditions. We recommend that you contact your physician first regarding usage of Theradome with your condition.

Is it safe to use Theradome with photosensitizing medications?


The Theradome lasers operate at a wavelength that will not affect the patient should they take photosensitive medications. The sun emits many types of wavelengths and the photosensitive medications are mostly sensitive to UV (ultraviolet) wavelengths. To be more specific, wavelengths within the UV-A spectrum (320-400 nm) and UV-B (290-320nm) cause drug-induced photosensitivity reactions.

The Theradome device emits wavelengths at 680nm +/- 8nm, which is closer to the near infrared spectrum. This means the Theradome lasers have absolutely no effect when patients both use the Theradome and are on medications that have photosensitivity warnings or labels.

Are there any medical conditions that may interfere with the effectiveness of low-level laser therapy, LLLT?


Before considering any hair growth treatment, we recommend you visit a physician to properly diagnose the cause of your hair loss. If you have any underlying medical conditions such as thyroid disease, anaemia, are taking any medications, or if you have any possible scalp conditions such as psoriasis, please visit your doctor to discuss these medical concerns. Any underlying medical conditions can be the cause for seeing slower than average results with your Theradome.

Is there a cancer risk using the Theradome?


Low-Level Laser Therapy is safe and has been around for decades and does not produce ionizing radiation. Over 1,500 scientific peer-reviewed papers support its benefits for bio-stimulation. The lasers of the Theradome penetrate up to 5mm into the scalp. Theradome uses cool lasers to reach the base of both vellus and terminal hair follicles. They do not penetrate the brain or skull. The Theradome is cleared by the FDA for safety and efficacy, and without any side effects.

Patients that have an Ommaya reservoir under their scalp need to consult their physician before undergoing laser treatment for hair growth. Additionally, scalp cancer patients should refrain from using the Theradome, as it can activate the growth of both healthy and unhealthy cells.

Can I use the Theradome if I have had a hair transplant?


The nation’s top hair restoration experts, such as Bosley Medical and Hair Club for Men, provide the Theradome to their patients. Theradome laser hair helmet works very well with pre-op patients and with those who are post-transplant. Transplants cause trauma to nearby hairs. Using the Theradome will alleviate these effects by providing extra energy and minimizing shock loss by:

1) accelerating the healing process

2) reducing redness/inflammation

3) protecting neighboring hairs

4) encouraging transplanted hairs to grow faster.

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.
