For men and women experiencing hair thinning, a laser cap could be the answer, particularly if they are interested in non-surgical treatments.
How a Laser Cap Works
A laser cap is an air tight membrane that sits on the scalp and emits low-level laser light energy to increase blood flow in the scalp, activate the skin cells and, in turn, stimulate the hair follicles into the growth phase. It targets the entire scalp and is most effective if the treatment is started at the first signs of hair thinning or receding. Laser caps are rechargeable and a typical one has approximately 224 lasers. They do not feel hot on the scalp so there is no risk of injury. It’s recommended a laser cap is worn around 3 times per week for 30-minutes each session.
Why Laser Caps Are Effective
Laser caps have a number of benefits. Firstly, the laser cap is a home device, meaning you can use it at your convenience in the privacy of your own home. It fits comfortably and discreetly under a hat so you can even go about your daily errands outside with it on. They’re also time efficient since you’re not required to make regular visits to a clinic for treatment.
Most importantly, laser cap is effective. While an in-clinic laser emits 80 diodes, a laser cap has an output of 224 diodes. Controlled clinical trials have shown that low-level laser light therapy stimulated hair growth in men and women. Based on an independent dermatological study, average hair count more than doubled after laser cap treatments.

Lastly, a laser cap not only stimulates the scalp, the laser light energy also helps the hair grow thicker and stronger.
