Our device operates in the visible light spectrum which is what the human eye can see and therefore, absolutely no radiation is possible at Theradome’s wavelength which is 680 nm. Theradome does not emit any harmful electromagnetic fields or waves and is purely in the photonic realm. As it relates to our photonic spectrum, there are no contraindications or side effects emitting from our device.
Red light does not cause damage to the scalp. There are no side effects if you wear the helmet for a few minutes longer.
If the foam pads are uncomfortable, we suggest adjusting them on your helmet to a more comfortable position. The indents you might experience are natural when something sits on the skin for too long and the marks are temporary.
It is similar to someone wearing a sock that is too tight and might leave a red mark for a few hours but eventually goes away.
The redness usually means that your scalp is not used to the helmet sitting on it. It will get better over time.
The Theradome helmets are FDA cleared for the safe and effective treatment of female and male pattern baldness. They are not recommended for any other medical usage.
The Theradome has a three-step safety system. It can only turn on when worn on the head. The laser beams broaden slightly and become less intense an inch away from the laser diode. They are also running at 7 milliwatts, a safe power level, at a wavelength in the visible spectrum that commonly enters our eyes. The lasers will seem uncomfortably bright if you get too close but will not cause eye damage.
Lasers are broken down into 4 classifications. Class 1, 2, and 3R are considered low-level (or cold lasers) and include devices like laser pointers, CDs, and hair restoration devices. Moderate and high-powered lasers, which are also called “hot lasers,” belong to the class 3b or 4 categories. These can damage the retina and burn the skin. The Theradome has a class 3R laser cleared by the FDA for safety and efficacy.
There are no side effects from using the Theradome. This has been verified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
