Female Pattern Hair Loss Treatment with the LaserCap Pro Q & A

What causes female pattern hair loss?

Losing your hair is never a pleasant experience, but for women, hair loss can be especially devastating. Female hair loss can occur for many reasons; some of the most common include:

  • alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that attacks the follicles

  • fungal infections

  • hormonal changes, especially those associated with menopause

  • trauma, including trichotillomania, or hair-pulling disorder

  • chemotherapy or radiation therapy

  • nutritional deficiencies

  • chronic stress

What is the LaserCap® LCPROTM system?

The LaserCap® LCPROTM system is a state-of-the-art approach to hair loss that uses special laser diodes to help stimulate hair growth without surgery. The diodes are embedded in a comfortable cap to ensure accurate and “close-up” delivery of the laser energy for enhanced results. The cap is designed to provide coverage of the entire scalp and to deliver a consistent level of energy throughout treatment. The LaserCap® LCPROTM system is different from other hair growth treatments because it's portable, which means it can be used in your own home on your own schedule so treatment is much more convenient.

How does the LaserCap® LCPROTM system work?

The LaserCap® LCPROTM system's proprietary diode-based system helps to stimulate hair growth by improving cellular function and respiration, optimizing the health of follicles to stimulate better growth and stronger, healthier hair. Most treatments involve wearing the comfortable cap for about 36 minutes every other day, with initial results appearing within about 12 weeks.

Is the LaserCap® LCPROTM system safe?

Yes, the LaserCap® LCPROTM system has been cleared by the FDA so you can feel confident using it.

How can I tell if the LaserCap® LCPROTM system is right for me?

The first step in treatment is to schedule a consultation appointment so your hair and scalp can be carefully evaluated. During your visit, you'll learn about the system and decide if it's a good choice for your needs.
