How to measure results and progress when using Theradome – before and after pictures

theradome pictures

It’s important to take before and after pictures when tracking the progress of your laser helmet treatments.

For best results, maintain consistency in positioning, lighting, and camera angle for all photos. Avoid using the camera’s flash or fluorescent lighting. Set the camera to autofocus and have a friend or loved one take the picture – no selfies!

Hair should be styled in the same way while documenting your progress and you should check photos for clarity and focus before concluding a photo session. Learn more here.

Can Theradome be used on wet or damp hair?

You can use Theradome at at any time. Use your Theradome when your hair is damp to maximize laser phototherapy treatment. It should not be wet and be towel-dried (not blow-dried) right after a shower. This isolates thinning areas on your scalp by combing and exposing those areas that might not be accessible when dry. Exposing those areas of your scalp will provide more light and dosage to those areas. You do not need to wet your hair every time. Also, we recommend your hair being damp versus wet since this is an electronic device and excess water could get into the electronics as our helmet is not water proof. Therefore, removing excess water from your hair will reduce the risk of electrical issues with your device.

Shampoo and hair regimens with Theradome

Since hair loss is often associated with inflammation and fungus, we recommend shampooing with medicated and anti-fungal shampoos to clean the hair, reduce inflammation of the scalp, and kill any fungus loads.

Theradome works better when inflammation and fungus is controlled as these conditions interferes with hair growth process and will take longer than usual.

Here is an example of a medicated shampoo

It is recommended by many trichologists who are experts in hair that you should shampoo your hair every two or three days. Shampooing every day tends to irritate the scalp, especially with the wrong shampoo. Shampooing once a week causes too much build up of fungus and inflammation, therefore every two or three says is optimal.

Inflammation or fungus can only be properly diagnosed by a physician / Dermatologist and acute or chronic cases of inflammation or fungus should be managed with medicated shampoos or topicals.

Our helmets have class 3R lasers. We are the only company on the market that uses proprietary lasers. The Theradome PRO LH80 contains 80 proprietary VL680 lasers. The Theradome EVO LH40 contains 40 proprietary VL680 lasers. Our lasers are the only lasers on the market that deliver the optimal wavelength for the deepest penetration to the hair follicle and maximum power to stop hair loss and promote hair growth.

Recommended usage and frequency of use

The Theradome PRO LH80 is FDA cleared for a usage of 20 minutes a day, twice a week (every 3 days). The Theradome EVO LH40 is FDA cleared for a usage of 20 minutes a day, (every other day). We have many customers reporting that they use Theradome more frequently with positive results. We don’t recommend the Theradome be used more than once in a 12-hour period. You can use other hair treatments and products in conjunction with your Theradome treatments, such as Minoxidil (Rogaine) or finasteride (Propecia).

If you are currently using Minoxidil or finasteride please continue using them while you start your laser phototherapy treatments. Also, be sure not to have these products in your hair, free of any topical, while undergoing a Theradome treatment. You can add them after your 20-minute session.
