LaserCap, the latest wearable hair loss device from America fits inside your own hat or cap, and uses low-level laser therapy to treat thinning hair in both men and women.LaserCap - The Latest Wearable LLLT Hair Loss Treatment Device

Like the recently released Theradome helmet, designed to be a convenient, wearable solution to treating hair loss using low-level laser treatment (LLLT).

Described as ‘an anti-ageing treatment for the hair and scalp’, the LaserCap is a flexible plastic disc which contains 224 low level lasers and is meant to sit inside a cap or hat. The portable insert is rechargeable, and a battery pack is provided with the product.

Once the fully-charged disc is placed inside one the hats provided, or one of your own styles if you prefer, the low-level lasers embedded in the insert, emit a therapeutic red light which covers the top of the head.

The LaserCap device uses ‘optimal power’, which is up to 4 Joules/cm2 of laser light energy to the scalp per treatment session. This is the power level shown to produce the best cell activation results in other LLLT devices, such as the popular HairMax LaserComb.

It is recommended that users have three 20-minute LaserCap sessions per week, with no more than a 1 hour session every other day. The company advises users to consult their doctor for specific advice on the optimum timing for their specific type and stage of hair loss.

The company claims the LaserCap will treat female and male hair loss, thinning, shedding and receding hair lines. However, the product is not currently cleared for hair loss treatment by the FDA. Additionally, it has seemingly not yet undergone any clinical trials. The company provides details of the general science behind LLLT to back up the claims that the LaserCap’s treatment is ‘scientifically-proven’, as low-level laser therapy is indeed clinically proven to promote hair growth. It does this by increasing blood-flow to the scalp and hair follicles, stimulating them into hair production.

LaserCap is promoted as being suitable for use with hair loss medications, minoxidil and Propecia. Anyone taking these hair loss treatments is advised to continue using them alongside their insert to boost the effects of these established medications for combatting hair loss.
