It is much easier to prevent hair loss than it is to reactivate any dormant hair follicles. By using Theradome, you’ll reverse any potential hair miniaturization. As a result, your hair follicles will continue to receive the energy they need through laser light therapy. This will thicken and generate new hair growth.
While shampoos are designed for the scalp, conditioners are designed for the hair. You can use any conditioner that softens your hair that is washed out.
While undergoing a Theradome treatment, make sure your hair is free of any topicals, including stay-in conditioners. You can add them after your 20-minute session.
The helmet was engineered to fit 98% of the world’s population. The Theradome fits heads sizes up to 61.8cm. Optional foam pads are provided to create a more secure fit for smaller head sizes. These are not necessary for the success of therapeutic effects.
Foam pads are provided for a comfortable fit, but a loose fit isn’t cause for concern. For best results, we’ve designed a comfortable fit enabling customers to SIT STILL during treatment. Activities such as browsing the Internet, watching TV or reading are perfectly compatible, but vigorous physical activity should be avoided during each 20-minute treatment session.
Laser phototherapy works on all skin types but it can be even more effective for African American Hair Growth. Here’s why:
Low-level laser therapy works by delivering a highly concentrated dose of energy to your hair follicles’ mitochondria. Mitochondria are your cell’s power plants. When your hair follicles die, it’s because they don’t have enough energy. By stimulating them with the precise right wavelength of light, you can re-invigorate them and restore hair growth.
Now, would you go outside wearing black clothes on a sunny, sweltering 100º F day? No, you wouldn’t because dark colors absorb more light, and thus more energy. When it comes to your comfort that’s a bad thing because more light = more energy = more heat.
When it comes to hair growth, however, this works in your favor! More light = more energy = more bio-stimulation at the mitochondrial level = more hair growth. And no need to worry about overheating if you choose a high-quality LLLT device.
While the Theradome is FDA cleared for Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1 – 4 (due to a limited number of subjects, data for skin types 5 and 6 is currently unavailable), we have many African American customers who have experienced great hair growth results with the Theradome.

Please do the following:
Connect the USB cable end to the AC adapter. Attach the micro-USB cable end to the connector located under the master switch Plug the adapter into an outlet.
While your helmet is connected to the charger, the master switch will slowly change colors indicating that the helmet is charging. When the color becomes solid green for at least 10 seconds, your Theradome is fully charged and ready for use.
There are two ways of charging the battery:
1. Fully charge the device and then use it without charging until it runs out of charge (usually about 4 to 9 treatments per charge for Theradome PRO and 6 to 12 treatments per charge for the Theradome EVO).
2. Put the helmet back on the charger after every treatment.
Personal preference is the best way to choose your recharge routine. The most important thing is ensuring you maintain a treatment regimen with very limited difference in the life of your battery.
Frontal hair loss is often where hair loss begins. 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.
Theradome PRO and EVO are FDA cleared to effectively and safely treat hair loss levels IIa, III, IIIa, III vertex, IV, IVa and V
Theradome PRO and EVO are FDA cleared to effectively and safely treat hair loss levels I-1, I-2, I-3, I-4, II-1, II-2 and frontal hair loss
How does the light from the Theradome stimulate hair growth? A healthy terminal hair’s base sits between 3 and 5 millimeters below the surface area of the skin. Laser light reaches this depth to stimulate damaged cells, thus enabling miniaturized hairs to begin growing again.
More than one person can use the same Theradome device, however, the system will count the total number of uses for everyone. It cannot differentiate between users.
To determine how many treatments have been completed, follow these steps:
1. Please press the Master Switch once briefly. You should hear a voice response “Ready for treatment, place on head”.
2. Place helmet on head, or cover proximity sensors with hand so lasers turn on. Helmet should respond with “Treatment # XX started” You should now know how many treatments have been completed.
3. You can now leave your helmet alone and it will turn off after ~5min, or press the Master Switch down until you hear response “Treatment aborted”.
Theradome has a rechargeable lithium battery. It is slightly bigger than an AA battery, and stores enough charge to operate for several treatments. A replacement battery cost is $49.00.
Batteries last about 250 to 450 treatment sessions depending on often it is used and method of charging.
There are two ways of charging the battery: 1) Fully charge the device and then use it without charging until it runs out of charge (about 6-8 treatments per charge for the PRO LH80 and about 6-12 treatments per charge for the EVO LH40). 2) Put the helmet back on the charger after every treatment.
Either way is fine but leaving on the charger at all times assures that the helmet will always be ready for treatment.
