Dear Hair Restoration Physician and Associates,
1. Based on feedback from last week’s email, I have edited the biphasic-dose-response graphic below to make it more readable; please see below.
2. LaserCap® SPRING SWAP – with your next LaserCap order, we will swap out ANY one of your non-LaserCap devices for a LaserCap as as I am expanding my inventory of non-LaserCap devices to measure their power outputs (part of our ‘prp + photomed for hair regrowth’ registry trial planning). Some of the more common non-LaserCap devices are organized in the graphic below, by calculated treatment dose (J/cm2). And here are the SWAP parameters: swap for LaserCap80 with any purchase of 3 LaserCaps; swap for LaserCap224 with any purchase of 5 LaserCaps; swap for LaserCap300 with any purchase of 10 LaserCaps.

Biphasic photomed treatment dose-responses have been previously demonstrated (e.g., lllt in traumatic brain injury; hamblin et al). In photomed for hair regrowth, the biphasic dose-response was thought to peak at around 4J/cm2 (similar to what had been previously described with photomed for wound healing). However, new research in photomed-induced proliferation of human dermal papilla cells shows in-vitro peak at 10J/cm2 (and with light-blocking effects of hair and skin, an in-vivo equivalent may be in the 20J/cm2 range or more). In light of this new information, here’s where some common photomed devices for hair regrowth may lie on the revised dose-response curve:
