Laser Hair Therapy
A Scientific Approach To Hair Loss
Low Level Laser (LLL) therapy is a revolutionary technology that has been proven to be effective when used in conjunction with the recommended products. It uses photo-bio stimulation that transforms laser energy into cellular energy. It affects hair growth in multiple ways; LLL stimulates capillary blood flow and its regenerative activity stimulates cell proliferation. The results are hair that is fuller, thicker, shinier, and healthier. Low Level Laser therapy also slows down the progression of hair loss.
- Increases the blood supply to the scalp by 54% after only one treatment.
- Stimulates hair follicles.
- Stops the progression of hair loss in 85% of patients.
- Increased hair strength and elasticity.
- Fuller, shinier, softer, thicker hair.
- For post-operative transplant surgery, such treatments have been shown to help newly transplanted hair to thrive and increases the healing process.
- Repairs damage normally caused by chemical services.
- Delivers light energy directly from different positions without loss of light properties to ensure appropriate dosage.
The Science of Low Level Laser Therapy
In 1964, Professor Andre Mester began experimenting with the use of low-power laser energy in Budapest, Hungary. In his experiments with wounds on mice, he noticed rapid healing due to microcirculation of blood supply. This healing was also obvious in Laser Hair Rejuvenation treatment of diabetic patients suffering from dystrophic sores.
This theory, through its evolution, has since been refined and has widely become one of the most popular non-invasive hair loss treatments.
Until recently, the use of such treatments has been relatively underutilized in North America. Today, however, there is increasing awareness and acceptance of such treatments.
The Capillus model is device that features 82 laser diodes for great scalp coverage (compared to similarly priced helmet and comb gadgets). Treat your hair while you go about your daily routine. Wear just 6 minutes while you perform any activity. Capillus is hands-free & mobile. Laser diodes are embedded within the interior surface of the dome, providing maximum coverage of areas susceptible to hair thinning. Lightweight case serves to protect and store your device and accessories, as well as to provide an easy method to travel with Capillus therapy.

What Causes Hair Loss?
The major cause of hair loss is DHT (Di-Hydro-Testosterone). You can see the circular androgen receptors and blood vessels flowing, but the DHT is blocking the flow of capillaries and blood supply to the Androgen Receptors. Once DHT binds to the androgen receptors, the receptors are no longer able to receive nutrients and energy, which is essential for healthy hair growth. As the DHT continues to cut off the flow of nutrients and energy, the hair eventually dies and falls out.
To combat DHT, the primary cause of hair loss, we combine 8 DHT blockers in a proprietary formula to bind harmlessly to the androgen receptor site. As you can see, the blue DHT blockers bind harmlessly to the androgen receptors and stop the green DHT from binding. Over time, as less DHT binds to the androgen receptors, nutrients and energy can flow freely back into the hair follicle. The hair follicle now grows back into its normal growth phase, and your hair has a chance to grow fuller and thicker into vibrant, healthy hair.
Does Wearing Hats or Helmets Cause Hair Loss?
This is a common misconception. No, hats do not contribute to hair loss.
Can Medications Cause Hair Loss?
Cholesterol-lowering medications and blood pressure medications are among the many drugs that can cause hair loss in men. If you talk to an experienced professional, such as those at Christoffels Hair Restoration, we’ll be able to determine whether or not your hair loss is being exacerbated by drugs.
Cholesterol-lowering medications, oral contraceptives, blood pressure medications, and diet pills are among the many drugs that can cause hair loss in women. If you talk to an experienced professional, such as those at Christoffels Hair Restoration, they will be able to determine whether or not your hair loss is being exacerbated by drugs.
How Much Hair Loss Per Day Is Considered Normal?
The average number of hairs someone loses a day is approximately 100 to 150 hairs. While this may seem like a lot, most men and women have about 150,000 hair follicles on their heads.
Can Hair Loss Be Prevented?
If your hair loss is caused by hair care or styling habits, medications, stress, or diet, there are preventative steps you can take. This would involve altering your habits (eating healthier foods or relaxing your hairstyle.) If your hair loss is caused by genetics or a medical condition, this is where Christoffels Hair Restoration can help. We have years of experience and numerous options to help you recover your hair, whether it is through prevention, replacement, transplant, or alternate means.
What Are My Options When I Begin To Lose My Hair?
There are many options available depending on the amount of your hair loss, and the reason for your hair loss. Also, your expectations play a big factor in your options. We recommend that you contact a hair loss professional like Christoffels Hair Restoration and schedule a private consultation and scalp evaluation to review the options that will work best for you. Some options that may be discussed include a low level laser light program to stop or slow down hair loss, other treatment programs to slow down hair loss, which sometimes even causes hair to grow. Or you may be better served with a non-surgical hair solution or hair transplantation.
What Can I Expect At My Consultation?
Plan on 45 minutes to an hour consultation consisting of a medical questionnaire, digital pictures, microscopic pictures and an analysis & a scalp evaluation with a trained hair loss specialist. You will receive a customized treatment plan based solely on your individual hair loss needs and goals. We will help you make a decision on which option is best for you.
What Is Laser Therapy?
LOW LEVEL LASER HAIR THERAPY (LLLT) is a revolutionary, non-surgical breakthrough for both men and women suffering the devastating effects of hair loss. Now it is easier than ever to achieve thicker, fuller, shinier, and healthier looking hair.
The low level lasers are “soft” lasers often referred to as “cold” lasers and do not have the thermal component to cut, burn, or vaporize.
Low Level Laser Hair Therapy treatments utilize a device containing therapeutic soft low level light lasers which deliver light energy directly to the scalp.
First developed in Europe, it has been used for improving hair volume and hair shaft quality, prolonging the life of hair color, and improving hair colors and perms.
What is Low Level Laser Light?
Simply stated, it is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength), and columnated (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot).
