Capillus272 Laser Light Therapy

Laser hair treatment has been making waves for a while now, and Capillus272 Laser Light Therapy takes things to a new level. Low-level light therapy, or LLLT, made its debut back in 2007 as a cutting-edge solution to the generations-old problem of male-pattern hair loss. The Capillus272 takes that same core technology and makes it portable and easier to use than ever before.

What Is Capillus272 Laser Light Therapy?

Capillus272 Laser Light Therapy is a new non-surgical way to combat hair loss. Already approved by the FDA for use in hair-loss treatments, it has seen lots of clinical trials and may be an effective solution for those troubled by hair loss.

Several hair-restoration experts have begun recommending the use of this mode of treatment for its ease of use, simplicity, and convenience. The Capillus272 device itself tucks snugly under a baseball hat or cap, so you can actually treat your hair on the go. It is battery powered for added mobility.

How It Works

The Capillus272 uses a beam of low-level laser energy to treat the affected area. Hair growth is stimulated by energizing the hair follicles using this energy. LLLT is said to boost cell metabolism and improve the general health of your blood vessels, resulting in stronger hair shafts. The therapy also coaxes the sebaceous glands to work harder, resulting in shinier hair.

If required, this can be used in conjunction with a topical medicinal treatment as well. Some men and women opt to use this treatment in addition to surgery or hair restoration medication. An added benefit of the treatment is that it can help darken any gray hair you may have, because of its ability to boost melanin production in your hair follicles.

What to Expect

First, get a complete workup of your hair loss problem. Filling out this diagnostic will help Dr. Kaufman understand the causes for your hair loss and will enable him to decide if any complementary treatment should also be prescribed.

After meeting with you, Dr. Kaufman will decide on the course of treatment needed. Combination therapy may be suggested and will be administered under careful guidance.

Who Can Use Capillus272?

The great thing about Capillus272 Laser Light Therapy is that it is suitable for both men and women and can be used in hair-loss treatment from numerous causes.

Since it gets to the root of the problem, it can treat cases of hair loss resulting from hormonal or genetic problems or stress. It is suitable for treating androgenetic alopecia.
