Hi, it’s Dr. Bauman.
If you think back to high school, you might recall your science teacher explaining that light is a form of energy.
That’s one reason plants need light to grow.
And as it turns out, studies show that certain forms of light — specifically low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) — helps your hair grow, too.
It works in part because LLLT stimulates your hair follicles to enter anagen, your hair follicles’ growth phase. What’s more, once your follicles have entered the growth phase, LLLT helps them stay in this growth phase longer. (1)
Result: You grow more hair, faster.
In one study, a group of men and women with hair loss were instructed to use LLLT at home for 5 to 10 minutes every other day.
At the end of the study, all participants showed significantly more hair growth in all the areas where they were previously shedding hair. (2)
In another study, patients used LLLT for 5 minutes per day three days per week. At the end of this 26-week study every patient had significant improvements in hair regrowth, slowing of hair loss, thicker feeling hair, better scalp health, and hair shine. (3)
And in yet another study, patients saw a 51% increase in healthy hair counts after using LLLT. (4)
Having prescribed LLLT for our patients at Bauman Medical since 1999–the year we acquired our first in-office laser therapy device—I’ve been very impressed by how low-level laser light therapy can help both women and men regrow hair.
So much so, in fact, that I partnered with the original LaserCap inventor, Dr. Michael Rabin, as well as a Harvard-based photomedicine researcher and an MIT-trained optical physicist, to design what I believe is the highest-quality LLLT-device available today.
It’s called the Bauman TURBO LaserCap (click for more info).
The FDA-cleared Bauman TURBO LaserCap is, hands down, the most advanced low-level laser therapy product for hair growth I’ve ever seen.
That’s why people like Dave Asprey, bestselling author, health guru, and Founder of the Bulletproof brand (as well as a patient here at Bauman Medical) raves about it.
In fact, Dave’s been using low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) and red light therapy for almost 20 years. And he told me the Bauman TURBO LaserCap — our premium LLLT device — has “more lasers in it than I’ve ever seen in anything else.”
He loves it.
But is it right for you?
To help you decide, let me answer some of the more common questions patients have about this product.
Q: How does the Bauman TURBO LaserCap work to regrow my hair?
The Bauman TURBO LaserCap uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to provide energy to your hair follicles, which causes them to grow thicker, healthier hair.
It works because laser therapy utilizes wavelengths of light in the “visible red” part of the spectrum that have a known biological effect on cells.
For decades, LLLT has been used as an effective drug- and side-effect free way to help heal wounds, relieve pain, increase circulation, and decrease inflammation.
We’ve seen and measured the improvements in thousands of our patients. And you saw the eye-opening studies earlier that prove just how effectively LLLT helps regrow hair.
With the Bauman TURBO LaserCap you get therapeutic LLLT right in the comfort of your own home.
Or, call us at 561-394-0024 with any questions.
Q: What makes this LaserCap different from other products?
I developed the FDA-cleared Bauman TURBO LaserCap based on feedback from my patients on how to improve existing LaserCaps.
But I didn’t develop this device on my own.
I collaborated with a LLLT “Dream Team”, including the original LaserCap inventor, Dr. Michael Rabin. As well as a Harvard-based photomedicine researcher and an MIT-trained optical physicist.
Together, we’ve created what I believe is the most effective and cutting-edge LaserCap available.
More scalp coverage, more hair growing laser power, quickest treatment times, and total portability for travel puts the TURBO LaserCap at the top of its class.
Simply put, no other device on the market has these features, this pedigree, or decades of experience behind it.
What’s more, your Bauman TURBO LaserCap is made by hand at a state-of-the-art lab here in America. It’s truly a premium Made in the USA device.
Q: Can I combine my TURBO LaserCap with other treatments?
While the Bauman TURBO LaserCap can be used as a stand-alone treatment, many patients maximize their results by combining it with a multi-treatment therapy plan.
What’s more, hair transplant patients often use this product to help accelerate healing and growth of the newly transplanted follicles.
Q: Is the Bauman TURBO LaserCap covered under warranty?
Yes! Your Bauman TURBO LaserCap comes with a LIFETIME warranty. If it ever breaks or malfunctions, the manufacturer will handle repairs, no questions asked.
Q: How much time do I need for my treatments?
If you’ve got a busy, hectic schedule, then you’re going to love the Bauman TURBO LaserCap. Because it delivers some of the fastest treatment times of any device on the market.
Just 5 minutes a day is all it takes to help improve the quality, strength, and thickness of your hair.
That’s thanks to the TURBO LaserCap’s high-quality diodes and technological improvements that provide maximum power output for better hair growth results in less time.
Like Dave Asprey said, “This has more lasers in it than I’ve ever seen in anything else.”
We currently have a small number of Bauman TURBO LaserCaps available. (Remember, they’re made by hand, so inventory is very limited.)
If you still have unanswered questions, or if you’d like to order your Bauman TURBO LaserCap by phone, please call us at 561-394-0024.
