How long should you continue Theradome maintenance treatment?

Healthy hair is like brushing your teeth or applying lotion for supple skin. Theradome maintenance treatments should be continued to maintain healthy hair and continual growth. Once you achieve the desired results, we recommend a maintenance treatment schedule of two 20-minute sessions per week for the Theradome PRO LH80 and four 20-minute sessions per week for the Theradome EVO LH40. Laser hair therapy is similar to exercise – you have to integrate it in your lifestyle to continue enjoying the benefits. You can go about 4 weeks before the process of reversing LPT benefits begin to take effect.

Will I see hair quality improvement?

hair quality improvement

The Theradome is a scalp-based device, not a hair device. 80 lasers penetrate the scalp tissue and reach 4-5 millimeters of depth to repair the cells that surround hair follicles. The provides overall hair quality imrpvement. This stimulation causes existing hairs to remain healthy while weak, thin hairs fall out to allow the growth of healthy, substantial “terminal” hair. Our helmet has proprietary lasers with computer-controlled algorithms that target the hair follicles at a cellular level. Follicles will return to a healthy state when exposed to our lasers.

How do hair growth cycles work?

hair growth cycles


The average human scalp consists of about 100,000 hairs. Normal, healthy hair is constantly growing in cycles. Hair growth cycles go through three important phases: a growing phase, a transitional phase, and a resting phase. The length of the growing phase represents a hair’s life cycle. During the transitional phase, a hair transitions to the resting phase. In the resting phase, hair does not grow at all. At any one time, 90% of scalp hairs are actively growing, while 10% are resting. Hair typically cycles through growth and rest with eventual random shedding. Large amounts of hair loss at any one time does not occur in healthy people. It can occur if you have an underlying medical condition. Healthy hair follicles are fed by the bloodstream. This carries nutrients required to generate new hair growth and sustain a healthy hair growth cycle.

When hair begins to degenerate, the lifecycle of a hair gets shorter and shorter. This causes hair to fall out more rapidly. The new hair that grows back becomes thinner and thinner every time. Theradome not only increases the length of the growing phase, but it also increases the thickness of new hair growth. Typically hair shafts double in size.

Hair can begin to degenerate for a myriad of reasons– genetics, age, stress, pregnancy, hormone imbalances, and many other factors that can burden the body. The body was designed to survive. It will instinctively redirect nutrients and attention from hair whenever necessary to provide extra sustenance to vital systems. These include the heart, lungs, and immune system that need attention. While you check these important medical issues, Theradome can maintain your hair by stimulating the scalp with an outside source of energy, exciting the mitochondria of the hair follicle cells with light energy, and increasing blood flow to the scalp by up to 54%. Both of these responses– added blood flow and cell stimulation– create the perfect recipe for hair growth. When the mitochondria in the cells are stimulated, they can more easily uptake the nutrients provided by the increased blood flow.

What is the difference with continuous vs. pulsed lasers?

The lasers on our Theradome helmets have continuous laser beams which means the maximum dosage is delivered without interruption. Some laser products pulse their beams turning on and off which means they deliver a fraction of the dosage. This is usually to manage their heat. Theradome lasers are cool and constant.

Understanding low-level light therapy (LLLT)



Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT), first developed in 1967. It is commonly used to promote wound healing and reduce inflammation. It acts through the photostimulation of cells involved in the human body’s repair process. Unlike industrial lasers that use high heat, low-level laser light, does not cut, burn or otherwise damage human tissue. And unlike common light bulbs or LED lights, laser light does not disperse. The ability to concentrate cold laser light within a small diameter allows the light to focus its energy on a specific target.

Will Theradome work on my problem areas?

Theradome treatment areas

Theradome will thicken and increase hair volume throughout the entire scalp, including any problem areas that you may have. However, any spots that are “shiny” on your scalp indicate that hair follicles are buried 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.

When is it best to start using the helmet – is it ever too early?

The Theradome is FDA cleared for ages 18+ for men and women. It is never too early to use the Theradome since it helps with various stages of hair loss and will add volume to your hair, even if you haven’t yet experienced major hair loss. The Theradome can also be used as a preventative measure or simple for maintenance of healthy hair.

How do I determine if the Theradome is right for me?

Our Theradome laser helmets are designed to effectively treat the earlier stages of hair loss, I-1 to II-2 for women and IIA to V for men. The Savin Scale for women and the Norwood Scale for men measure overall thinning and density. See the diagrams below to determine which stage best identifies your situation.

How to get thicker hair

how to get thicker hair


Theradome Inc. is the only company on the market that developed proprietary lasers that deliver 680 nanometers. Our lasers are the only lasers on the market that deliver 680nm, the optimal wavelength for the deepest penetration to the hair follicle increase its thickness and density. It also delivers maximum power to stop hair loss and promote hair growth.
