Using Theradome with hair loss and hair extensions

Theradome can help improve follicle and scalp health when using hair extensions and dreadlocks. Just a little tip for you: hair extensions pull on your hair and may weaken your hair follicles causing hair loss. Theradome can help strengthen your hair follicles so you will experience less damage when using hair extensions or with dreadlocks.

What are the advantages of Theradome’s medical grade laser diodes

The Theradome PRO LH80 contains 80 medical grade 680 nanometer lasers.

The Theradome EVO LH40 contains 40 medical grade 680 nanometer lasers.

Theradome’s lasers are the only lasers on the market that deliver 680 nanometer wavelength, the strongest dose available for the deepest penetration to the hair follicle. This is why Theradome is recommended by over 6500 hair restoration clinics globally.

What is the difference between the Theradome PRO LH80 and the EVO LH40

Both of Theradome’s helmets, the PRO LH80 and the EVO LH40, are made with medical grade lasers. They emit 680 nanometer wavelengths. This targets stem cells in the base of the hair follicles for maximum stimulation and growth. The decision of which helmet to purchase will come down to a personal preference between cost and desired use time.

The PRO LH80 has 80 lasers while the EVO LH40 has 40. This means you will get the same results by using the PRO LH80 2X per week as you will with the EVO LH40 4X per week. The treatment time for both helmets is twenty minutes per session. We have many users that wear their helmets everyday with absolutely no side effects. You can achieve results twice as quickly using the PRO LH80 everyday as you can using the EVO LH40 for the same number of treatments.

If you choose to wear your helmet more than once per day, we recommend you wait 12 hours in between treatments.

Both the PRO LH80 and EVO LH40 have full scalp coverage. Lasers reach the top, back, sides, crown and temples. The PRO LH80, with a higher number of lasers, will initially reach more hair follicles in each treatment. The laser energy scatters and absorbs similar to water hitting a sponge. While each helmet covers the full scalp, it just takes more treatments with the EVO LH40 to achieve the same amount of follicle stimulation as with the PRO LH80. Here’s some more information on their similarities and differences:

Can Theradome be used to hair loss if it is in the family?

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.

Can I use hair conditioner with Theradome treatment?

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.

Will the Theradome fit my head, what size is the Theradome?

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.

Can I use the Theradome if I have dark skin?

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.

How to charge the Theradome and leaving the charger on

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.

Why do I have frontal hair loss?

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.

What is the light penetration of Theradome?

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.
