How to Use
For best results, use the LaserCap SD for 30 minutes every other day. Please refer to your user manual to find detailed instructions for use.
How it Works
The LaserCap SD is a FDA-cleared laser hair restoration medical device that delivers a treatment called Low-Level-Laser-Therapy (LLLT), also known as Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT). LLLT is safe, natural, free from drugs or other chemicals, and clinically proven to be an effective treatment for male and female pattern hair loss.
LLLT works by stimulating hair follicles with low-intensity red laser light. When hair follicle cells absorb this specific kind of light, they are able to “work,” that is, perform cellular respiration more efficiently and produce thicker, healthier hair.
Indications for Use
Degree of Hair Loss
The LaserCap SD can be used by men and women with thinning hair due to hereditary pattern hair loss, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia. Doctors use specific rating scales to describe the degree of hair loss (see the image below).
For men, this is the Hamilton-Norwood scale, while for women, this is the Ludwig-Savin scale. The LaserCap SD is indicated to treat hair loss in men with Hamilton-Norwood classifications of IIa-V, and women with Ludwig-Savin classifications of I-II. These classifications are shaded in the diagram below.
Like other laser hair caps, the LaserCap SD is known to be effective in men and women with white to brown skin tones, specifically Fitzpatrick skin types 1-4. The Fitzpatrick system is a way to classify skin type based on complexion and what happens when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
Contraindications for Use
If any of the following apply to you, consult with a physician before using the LaserCap SD or other laser hair restoration devices.
- You are taking medications or have a medical condition that makes your skin sensitive to the sun or light.
- You are allergic to red or near-infrared light (645-660nm).
- You have a history of skin cancer of the scalp, head, or neck.
- You are suffering from severe diseases such as cancer, hematological diseases, advanced diabetes, or heart disease.
- You are suffering from scalp injury.
- You are pregnant, menstruating, or nursing (lactation).
- You are under 18 years of age.
Like other laser hair caps, the LaserCap SD requires regular, consistent use to achieve results. Make sure you use the LaserCap SD for 30 minutes every other day, or as directed by your physician.
Timeline of Results
If you comply with your treatment protocol, you should start seeing positive results from the LaserCap SD within 4-6 months. Over the next 1-2 years, you may see continued improvement, after which you should continue to utilize the LaserCap SD’s laser hair restoration to maintain your results.
*You may see increased hair shedding for the first 1-2 months using the LaserCap SD. This is a normal part of the regrowth process and should not be a cause for concern.
Quality of Results
LLLT is an evidence-based hair loss treatment, proven effective in numerous high-quality clinical trials. The LaserCap SD is also cleared by the FDA as an effective treatment for male and female pattern hair loss.
Nevertheless, it is important to understand that the results from laser hair caps can be subtle. Results will also vary from person-to-person based on the degree of hair loss when starting treatment, genetics, environmental conditions, and other factors inherent to each individual. In some cases, LLLT will produce hair regrowth and thickening. While in other cases, results will be limited to stabilization or slowing the rate of hair loss.
You can achieve better results by combining laser hair restoration therapy with other evidence-based hair loss treatments. These include but are not limited to medications such as minoxidil (Rogaine), finasteride (Propecia), and hair transplant surgery.
