Laser Therapy (LLLT) Conveniently located to serve La Jolla and San Diego
Dr. Carman and La Jolla Hair Restoration are proud to announce they have partnered with Capillus in order to offer our patients the highest quality low-level laser therapy (LLLT) technology available as an option to treat both male and female pattern hair loss. With his extensive experience, Dr. Carman is considered a top provider of laser therapy for hair restoration in La Jolla.
What is Laser Therapy?
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the use of red and near-infrared monochromatic light to enhance the body’s natural healing and growth processes. The light source is placed in contact with the skin, allowing the light energy (photons) to penetrate tissue where it interacts to increase circulation and help restore normal cellular function. In addition, controlled clinical trials have demonstrated that LLLT stimulates hair growth in both men and women.
After extensive personal research evaluating all of the available LLLT products manufactured and distributed worldwide, Dr. Carman concluded that Capillus produces the highest quality devices available which perform at or above the standards set and approved by the FDA for hair growth and maintenance.
Capillus® is a non-surgical hair restoration option for both men and women who suffer with thinning, shedding, or balding hair. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Carman to find out if this therapy is right for you.
Hair Therapy with Laser Caps
Stop the progression of hair loss while fueling your scalp with the key ingredients for thicker, fuller hair. Hair therapy with laser caps is a simple yet effective way to encourage natural hair growth through better circulation, nutrient delivery, and hair follicle health.
Improve Circulation. Laser caps leverage the power of low level laser therapy (LLLT), an established medical technology that is known to improve circulation through phototherapy. Phototherapy occurs when low level laser light penetrates the cells of the scalp, increasing cellular activity and the potential for growth.
Increase Nutrient Availability. Experience higher levels of oxygen, nutrients, and other growth factors delivered directly to each hair follicle. Better blood flow carries these key ingredients directly to the scalp, creating ideal conditions for naturally long and thick hair growth.
Fortify Follicle Health. With laser therapy caps like the Capillus272™ Pro, individual hair follicles are given the fundamental building blocks needed to improve health and vitality.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair loss using red light lasers has also been reported to:
- Stimulate the sebaceous glands for silkier-looking hair.
- Darken grey hairs by increasing natural melanin production in the hair follicles.
- Increase cell metabolism and the health of blood vessels in the scalp for thicker, supple, and more durable hair shafts
Capillus® Laser Hair Restoration: A Safe Option for Women
Women are not always candidates for hair transplant surgery, leaving few options for clearing the personal and social hurdles of hair loss. Certain prescription medications, like Propecia®, are not safe for women. And when it comes to topical hair loss foams like Rogaine®, the hassle of twice-daily application is a deal-breaker for most women.
Our female patients love the Capillus272™ Pro, and it’s easy to see why. The laser cap fits discreetly beneath your favorite hat, and it’s battery-operated for easy use on-the-go.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Therapy with Capillus®?
The best candidates for Capillus® laser hair therapy are healthy individuals who want a non-surgical option for hair restoration. It’s suitable for men and women with androgenetic alopecia, or pattern baldness.
Capillus® can treat frontal hair loss and hair loss types I-1 to 4, type II-1, and type II-2 in women. For men, Capillus® can treat hair loss types IIa, III, IIIa-Vertex, IV, IVa, and V.
Since the device is a laser cap, you can comfortably wear it while doing other activities like watching videos on your phone or reading a book.
Capillus® laser hair therapy is a quick treatment, which is perfect for individuals who prefer a short treatment due to their busy schedule.
Capillus® may not be safe for patients diagnosed with skin cancer of the scalp, head, or neck. Those with an allergy to 650 nm light should also consider another type of hair-loss treatment.
The Laser Hair Restoration Consultation
During your consultation at La Jolla Hair Restoration, we will confirm if laser therapy is the best option for your hair-restoration goals. Your type of hair loss will be diagnosed. You will also be asked about your complete medical history, including current prescriptions and past treatments. Inform us of any possible allergies as well.
Once it is confirmed that you are eligible for Capillus® laser therapy, you will be given an overview of the treatment, including the recommended number of sessions. The total sessions needed will vary per type of hair loss.
When Can I Expect Results from Capillus® Laser Hair Restoration?
The results from Capillus® laser hair restoration will be different for everyone. Patients may initially experience hair fall after the first treatment for around three months. This is a normal process as the older hair is pushed away by new hair follicles. Fuller hair can be seen in four months.
How Much Does Laser Therapy for Hair Restoration Cost?
The price of your laser hair restoration therapy will depend on which Capillus® system is best for you. Dr. Carman can determine the ideal intensity of low-level laser energy for your needs after assessing your hair and scalp in a consultation. He can then recommend which of the four Capillus® systems will be most effective for you and provide specific details regarding the cost of your treatment.
