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.

What is the hair growth cycle?

Normal healthy hair is constantly growing in cycles. People lose a certain number of hairs daily. Hair follicles usually cycle through growth and loss randomly. This is so you’re never losing large amounts of hair all at once. Two important phases of the hair cycle are the growth phase (called Anagen) and a rest phase (called Telogen). In the resting phase, hair follicles are dead, which means they are not growing at all. At any one time, 90% of scalp hairs are actively growing, while 10% are resting. Healthy hair follicles feed through the blood stream, which carries nutrients required to generate new hair growth and sustain a healthy hair growth cycle.

Diabetes Hair Loss Treatment

Diabetes negatively affects the body’s circulatory system. Less nutrients and oxygen reach the extremities, such as the feet and scalp. Diabetes creates a hormonal imbalance in your body that can cause hair loss and prevent new hair growth.

If you have diabetes, and you’re untreated, we recommend your contact your physician first to be treated. Once you’ve addressed the root of the problem, then you can focus on re-growing your hair in the comfort of your home with the Theradome.

What are the reasons why hair degenerates?

Hair can begin to degenerate for a myriad of reasons. Genetics, age, stress, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, and other ailments that can burden the human body. The body is designed to survive. So it will instinctively remove nutrients and attention from the hair whenever necessary to provide sustenance to the most important bodily systems (heart, lungs, immune system, etc.).

The Theradome helmet can help your hair maintain itself despite these hair degeneration issues by stimulating the scalp. The mitochondria of the hair follicle cells activate with laser light, which results in increasing blood flow to the scalp by up to 54%. Additionally, the stimulation of the mitochondria forces cells to readily utilize nutrients provided by the increased blood flow. Both of these responses – added blood flow and cell stimulation – create a perfect recipe for hair growth.

Is Theradome an Alopecia Areata treatment?

Alopecia Areata is displays as hair loss in patches. Whereas Telogen effluvium is a scalp disorder displayed by the thinning of hair. This results from the early entry of hair in the Telogen stage of the hair growth cycle.

Before purchasing the Theradome, we recommend that a doctor examine a patient diagnosed with Alopecia Areata for any other underlying medical conditions. That being said, Theradome  customers with Alopecia Areata experience great success with Theradome.

Understanding Alopecia Areata and its causes

Hair loss, medically termed alopecia, can result from a number of factors, such as genetics, age, stress, pregnancy, and hormonal imbalances. Changes in the body’s chemistry from these causes can lead to a series of reactions that reduce blood flow and nutrients supplied to hair follicles and scalp tissue, resulting in cell damage and underperforming follicular hair growth.

Over time, the biological pathway that nurtures follicles and healthy hair growth shuts down. Malnourished hair follicles cause hair growth degeneration, a process called hair miniaturization. Over time, hair becomes thinner, shorter and more brittle. The hair growth life cycle becomes shorter and shorter, causing hair to fall out more frequently. Eventually, only vellus, or “peach fuzz” hair grows. In many cases, hair completely stops growing.

Is Theradome successful with a bald spot hair growth or shiny scalp?

Theradome will thicken and increase hair volume throughout the entire scalp. This includes any problem areas  or bald spots that you may have. However, any bald spots that are “shiny” on your scalp indicate that hair follicles are under a layer of skin. Laser phototherapy will not be effective for those areas. For these cases, we recommend a combination of hair restoration surgery and laser hair therapy.
