The ORIGINAL LaserCap
LaserCap is a portable, hands-free, cordless and rechargeable low level laser therapy device for men and women designed to deliver laser therapy to the scalp in a convenient and discreet way.
Consistent use of low level laser therapy treats hair loss, hair thinning and has been proven to improve the appearance of hair quality, hair strength and hair thickness in addition to promoting hair growth.
LaserCap is the original and first hair growth device to offer the power of a clinical laser therapy unit in a 100% cordless, rechargeable, discreet treatment device that literally ‘fits under your favorite baseball hat.’
Nearly 40x the power of comb, brush or band-lasers and infinitely easier to use. Walk, jog, bike, drive or sit… LaserCap is a non-chemical, non-invasive, pain-free hair growth treatment that can be applied anytime you can wear a hat or scarf. Note: LaserCap is available only through physicians.
Am I a good candidate for LaserCap?
Because hair loss and hair thinning are medical conditions that may be influenced by many factors, including heredity, medications, illness, stress, nutrition, lifestyle, etc. and may get worse with time, Dr. Bauman recommends that all patients have a thorough medical consultation before initiating any hair restoration regimen. Baseline evaluations, tracking measurements and standardized medical photos are critical to provide an objective measurement of your progress.
When can I expect results from LaserCap?
Hair fibers are produced at a growth rate of about 1cm per month, even with consistent use it can take six to twelve MONTHS to see visible changes in your hair in the mirror*. However, by using an accurate scientific measuring device like HairCheck which takes cross-sectional hair bundle (Hair Mass) measurements, it becomes easy to monitor your scalp’s response to laser therapy in just a few weeks*. Sometimes, one area of the scalp improves more than another… many patients ask “why?” The answer is that the improvement with Laser Therapy treatment with LaserCap will be proportional to the amount of weak hair in a given area. The higher numbers of weaker hair follicles, the greater the improvement in Hair Mass. If the density in a given area is very weak, improvements will be less dramatic. In addition, if the hair density and thickness is excellent in a given area of scalp, the improvement in that location will also be less dramatic. It may seem counterintuitive, but just like other non-invasive treatments like Minoxidil (Formula 82M, etc.) and PRP, the response in each area will be proportional to the amount of hair that can be modulated or improved. High-powered magnification of the scalp or Dermoscopy with a device like the HairCam can help your hair loss specialist determine which areas are likely to respond to non-invasive treatment and which areas will need minimally-invasive hair transplantation with NeoGraft FUE.At Bauman Medical Group, during your hair loss consultation Dr. Bauman will evaluate several areas of your scalp using HairCheck measurements and HairCam micro-dermoscopy and then prescribe a treatment plan based on your hair loss status in each area and hair restoration goals.

Is LaserCap safe?
LaserCap meets or exceeds all federal safety and manufacturing standards. As a Class 3R laser, the LaserCap is considered safe when used as directed. Laser therapy is a 100% painless treatment that has absolutely no side-effects.
How does Laser Therapy work?
Laser therapy is the use of visible wavelengths of light (e.g. ‘red’) which have a biological effect on cells. It is known that wavelenghts of light produced by the diodes of the LaserCap are associated with an increase of energy production within the cells and which may be the primary mechanism for helping patients hair follicles produce thicker, healthier looking hair.
Can I use LaserCap in conjunction with Propecia/finasteride, Rogaine/Minoxidil/Formula 82m or other treatments?
Laser Therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment regimen or in conjunction with FDA-approved and custom compounded medications, nutraceuticals and nutritionals, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma and stem cell therapy. Laser Therapy has also been shown to decrease discomfort as well as accelerate healing and accelerate hair growth after hair transplant surgery.
