We are proud to offer LaserCap™.  Though it looks like an ordinary ballcap, it is anything but. This FDA cleared, easy-to-use-at-home treatment stimulates and maintains hair regrowth. It has several impressive mechanisms of action, which are scientifically proven to improve the number and caliber of hairs on your head. It can be used alone or in combination with finasteride, minoxidil, and PRP treatments.

Inhibits 5-alpha reductase

5-alpha reductase is the enzyme responsible for converting the common sex hormone testosterone into the hair loss hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Researchers have found that the more 5-alpha reductase enzyme a person has, the more likely they are to suffer with hair loss. LaserCap™ inhibits the production of 5-alpha reductase in the user, thereby halting the conversion of testosterone into DHT. This in turn slows and eventually halts the loss of hair due to DHT.

Boosts Oxygen Delivery

LaserCap™ boosts oxygenation to every cell of the scalp. When the low-level infrared lights interact with your scalp, the laser separates two key factors of the hair loss equation: nitric oxide (NO) and an enzyme known as cytochrome c oxidase (CCO). These elements then bind together, moving oxygen on a cellular level and lowering cellular respiration. As a result, more life-giving oxygen is delivered to hair follicles along with essential nutrients for new hair growth.

Causes Acute Inflammation

Inflammation is a natural response of your immune system and can be used to encourage hair regrowth. While too much inflammation can actually contribute to hair loss, smaller “doses” can be significantly beneficial to the hair growth process. The focused effect of red light on the scalp helps to instigate this helpful form of inflammation, thus aiding in the growth of new hair without becoming uncomfortable or resulting in any negative side effects.

Activates Shock Proteins

Heat shock proteins are known to aid in cellular health. In the scalp, the specific shock protein known as HSP27 is utilized. The LLLT technology of LaserCap™ works to activate this specific shock protein and others, allowing them to boost hair follicle stem cell growth. Essentially, this process encourages hair re-growth at the innermost layer of the cell, the outer root of each sheath, and within the top layer of skin (at the epidermis cells where a structural protein called keratinis produced).

Increases Blood Flow

As the cells of your scalp begin to receive more oxygen, the small capillaries of your scalp are finally allowed to “breathe”. Nitric oxide acts as a vasodilator, helping to widen the tiny blood vessels. Old blockages are released and the flow of blood increases even as the delivery of oxygen is improved. This process is often referred to as vasodilation and, as you might imagine, it is vital to the growth of new hair and considered a foundational requirement for sustaining healthy hair.

Discreet to wear anytime

As with any medical therapy, dosage and frequency are key. It is important to use LaserCap 3 times per week for 30 minutes, not on successive days.  It has a convenient battery pack so that you can wear the cap while driving, doing housework, answering emails, or just relaxing at home. It is painless and comfortable, with no side effects. Ask about making LaserCap part of your hair loss action plan at your free consultation at Natural Restorations.
