Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is used to treat hair loss. It helps the body provide necessary blood, oxygen, and other nutrients to areas where surgery (hair transplants) has been done. In addition, long term treatment after surgery can help limit any additional thinning. There are several ways that LLLT is administered. Laser domes, laser combs, and laser caps are used. Laser domes require outpatient visits. Laser combs are used at home but can be difficult to use. Laser caps are probably the easiest method, since they are portable, hands-free, and effective. The Hair Transplant Institute of Miami offers the Capillus272 laser cap, a powerful device approved by the FDA which can be used at home. It is the most powerful device available for at-home use.
