Tapering Minoxidil during Theradome treatment, reducing Minoxidil


It is very important to slowly reduce your dosage over about 6 months (each) to 1 year (preferred). We recommend you don’t immediately stop using it as this will cause massive shedding (since that is their major side effect). You can start by reducing the concentration of Minoxidil from 5% to 2.5% for example, then decreasing the number of times per day, then use it every other day, and then two times a week to once a week, and then finally after 6 months to 1 year, stop altogether. Laser phototherapy does not cause shedding, but Minoxidil has clearly labelled side effects of shedding. So it is important to maintain laser phototherapy sessions at all times.

Using Theradome with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment


The Theradome is an FDA cleared treatment for both men and women for Androgenetic Alopecia. The Theradome helmet provides maximum benefit to the scalp for years and is an at-home wearable product. It is designed to be effective alone without other additional treatments.

PRP requires periodic visits to the clinic and the procedure involves several injections to the scalp. PRP is an “off label” treatment, meaning that the FDA has not cleared or approved it for treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia.

The difference between PRP and the Theradome is that the Theradome has been clinically proven and FDA cleared to

1) slow down or stop hair loss

2) thicken existing hairs

3) regrow or promote new hair growth.

PRP treatments only address #3, regrowing or promoting new hair growth.
