How Does Laser
Theradome’s targeted lasers
Deliver a precise dose of energy to your hair follicles, bio-stimulating your mitochondria (the “power plants” of your cells) in order to stop hair loss, thicken hair follicles, and grow new hair
A precise wavelength proven to get results
Theradome helmets are specifically engineered to deliver laser light at 680 nm wavelengths, the gold standard in stimulating hair growth, according to the Swedish Laser Medical Society Most other LPT devices do not meet this same standard and some don’t even use real lasers at all, relying on cheap LEDs instead.
What’s the difference between LASERs and LEDs?
Medical Grade LASERS
Theradome medical grade LASERs penetrate the scalp up to 5mm for maximum follicle stimulation, more than any other at home laser hair growth device.
Some laser hair loss products use LEDs. LED beams diverge without reaching the base of WARREN – 71 hair follicles.

LASER PHOTOTHERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS
Treating Alopecia Areata with Laser
PHOTOTHERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS
Alopecia areata is classified as an inflammatory, autoimmune skin disease, in which white blood cells mistakenly identify hair follicles as foreign invaders. Similar to how the human body deals with microbes and viruses, the immune system proceeds to destroy hair follicles, from which hair shafts should develop under healthy circumstances. As a result, patients diagnosed with alopecia areata experience hair loss, usually in clumps, which can develop in smooth, circular or oval bald patches on the scalp. These patches are usually small and around the size of a quarter; however in some cases, hair loss can be more extensive or involve the complete loss of scalp hair, which is known as alopecia areata totalis. In even rarer cases, individuals experience hair loss on their scalps, bodies and faces (referred to as alopecia areata universalis). Bald patches may regrow while other bald patches form and are typically bordered by ‘exclamation point hairs” -short broken hair that result from hair shafts breaking off as anagen follicles enter the catagen growth phase Over time, hair can regrow with a lack
There is much that is yet to be understood regarding alopecia areata, including its complete mechanism of action. Skin biopsies of affected areas have revealed the presence of lymphocytes in hair cells, which affects the healthy growth of hair follicles and causes them to undergo miniaturization. However, the stem cells that keep supplyinghair cells to follicles remain unaffected bythe intruding lymphocytes, meaning that hair regrowth can still occur Hair regrowth is often seen in patients while other patches of hair loss form simultaneously. Thus the unpredictability of alopecia areata makes it a difficult and frustrating condition to treat. Other factors regarding alopecia areata are still unclear, including why individuals inherit the disease and others do not. It has been noted that alopecia areata has a larger presence in families affected by other autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anemia, or Addison’s disease.
Alopecia is a rare genetic disease that results in patchy hair loss. The course of the disorder is unpredictable; traditional treatment lacks both reliability and efficacy, and often comes with undesirable side effects.However, the clinically proven benefits of Laser Phototherapy (LPT) for reversing androgenetic alopecia could lead to a much more effective treatment for alopecia areata. This paper examines LPT, its mechanism of action, and how it could possibly help alopecia areata patients reverse and prevent the devastating effects of their conditions.
STANDARD TREATMENTS AND LIMITATIONS
Standard treatment today has no effect on the long-term progression of alopecia areata5 and cannot prevent the random occurrence of hair loss patches. The number one treatment performed is the injection of intralesional corticosteroids (usually triamcinolone acetonide) into bald patches,6 a procedure that must be repeated at 4 to 6 weekly intervals. While the anti-inflammatory properties of corticosteroids help temporarily reverse hair loss, relapse is known to occur. The injections can come with several side effects, including skin atrophy, bleeding, infection, allergic reactions, pigmentation changes and telangiectasia – filamentous red lines or patterns on the scalp caused by the widening of venules, which can present another cosmetic issue with thinning hair. Furthermore, systemic reactions including syncope, anxiety, profuse sweating, chest and back pain and collapse have also been reported.7 Other traditional treatments include the use of topical corticosteroids, which have higher relapse rates8 and which can include folliculitis as a possible aftermath. 6 Minoxidil is also sometimes used to induce hair regrowth with moderate results, common side effects involve contact dermatitis and facial hypertrichosis.
