You may have noticed an increase of hair shedding, your part is noticeably wider, or the circumference of your pony tail is smaller. Many people change their hair style to cover up thinning before coming to terms with the fact that they might be experiencing hair loss. In many cases, men don’t realize they are losing hair because they cannot see the balding at the crown and others find it a difficult subject to bring up. Hair loss is usually a progressive condition meaning it worsens over time if left untreated. It can be devastating at any age and can have severe psychological effects on men and women.
Once someone first notices hair loss, they likely have been shedding for years and have already lost half of their hair volume according to industry expert and hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Robert Leonard. It is a medical fact that there is no way to bring a dead hair follicle back to life; however, if you catch hair loss in its earlier stages, there are ways to stop further progression and regrow hair that has begun to thin. The trick to treating hair loss is to identify it early on and do something about it before it is irreversible.
Just as light makes plants grow, it helps hair regrow. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is based on the biological effects of photobiomodulation in living organism and has been shown to be effective in stimulating and energizing the cells within the hair follicle. Capillus laser caps work to reverse hair loss in those with pattern hair loss and stimulate thicker, healthier hair. Low level laser therapy increases cellular respiration and capillary blood flow to the dermis of the skin – which helps slow down progression of androgenetic alopecia and even regrows miniaturizing hair.
Hair loss is a severe and wide-ranging issue affecting millions of men and women around the world. Also known as pattern balding, androgenetic alopecia is the most prevalent form of hair loss in men and women, accounting for 98% of hair loss. Hair loss in androgenetic alopecia occurs through the process of miniaturization, where hair follicles that were formerly producing healthy hairs begin to produce thinner, shorter, more brittle hairs with weaker shafts until they eventually die and cease to produce hair permanently.
Capillus's independently-reviewed, double-blind clinical trial was registered on ClinicalTrials.gov and was managed by a neutral third party. The clinical trial data indicated that low-level laser therapy of the scalp every other day for 17 weeks with the CapillusPro™ device, significantly improved hair counts by 51% in those study participants who used the active (non-placebo) device. Subjects were able to use the device on a self-treatment home-use basis and no adverse events or side-effects were reported. The CapillusPro™ was proven to be a safe and effective treatment for androgenic alopecia. See details of clinical trials at: www.clinicaltrials.gov
Capillus brings customers choices to fit every budget. The difference in the devices is the amount of laser coverage.
Capillus laser caps for mobile use at home or on-the-go range from the value-priced CapillusUltra to the CapillusRX that is available through physicians only. The CapillusPro with 272 laser diodes covers more surface area of the scalp than any FDA-cleared device available directly to you.
