What is the Capillus Hair Growth Laser Cap?
Capillus Hair Growth Laser Cap is designed to stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
How does Capillus Hair Growth Cap work?
The Capillus Hair Growth Cap contains low-level lasers that claim to stimulate, energize and renew cells inside your hair follicles through the use of targeted light.
Is the Capillus Hair Growth Cap safe to use?
Yes. Capillus technology uses a special type of low level laser light that operates at 650nm. This wavelength of light is visible red light. Red laser energy is restorative in nature and does not damage skin cells. Rather, light is absorbed by the skin without causing any pain or discomfort. The US FDA gave clearance to Capillus devices as safe treatment for androgenetic alopecia.
Are Capillus lasers hot?
No. Capillus lasers are cool to the touch, meaning your LLLT treatment will be comfortable. In fact, LLLT (low-level laser therapy) is also known as cold laser therapy. Some users have reported a slight increase in temperature to the treatment area, but this is safe during treatment, and is most likely a result of heat naturally emitting from the covered scalp.
How often can I use the Capillus Hair Growth Laser Cap?
Treatments consist of wearing the cap for 6 minutes daily.
Do I have to cut my hair to use your laser cap?
No. For most individuals, cutting or trimming hair is not necessary. Laser light typically shines through individual strands of hair to easily reach the scalp beneath. Our laser light caps have a smooth silicone liner with a flexible fit that adapts comfortably to your scalp. There are no projecting bumps or comb-like teeth. Instead, low-level laser light shines through individual strands of hair to easily reach the scalp beneath.
