The Capillus unit has 272 lasers, as opposed to the lasers that we had in the office. This is actually more powerful and more effective.

Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, led by Dr. Jon E. Mendelsohn, suggests low-level laser therapy with the Capillus272™ Pro for patients suffering from hair loss. This device holds 272 laser diodes, providing greater concentrated energy than any other at-home laser cap currently on the market.

“The Capillus unit has 272 lasers, as opposed to the lasers that we had in the office. This is actually more powerful and more effective,” Dr. Mendelsohn stated.

The Capillus272™ Pro is a nonsurgical FDA-cleared laser cap for the promotion of hair regrowth in men and women suffering from androgenetic alopecia. Used as a standalone or with surgical intervention, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) helps revitalize hair follicles that have failed to maintain their steady growth cycle. Each laser emits energy to stimulate a portion of the scalp, which then in turns draws blood flow and nutrients to balding or thinning areas.

“The Capillus laser works by creating what we call neo-vascularization, or new blood vessels, which are bathing the hair follicles,” he said. “By creating a healthier environment, these hairs will begin to grow more.”

Low-level laser therapy is especially useful for women who aren’t candidates for surgical intervention. Dr. Mendelsohn often prescribes the Capillus272™ Pro before and after a hair transplant to trigger ideal results. Typically, Dr. Mendelsohn’s patients see Capillus272™ Pro results within 6 months.

“Over time, it’s very clear that the hair is stimulated to grow. Your hair dresser will very likely notice results, as well as yourself.”

As Clinical Director of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, Mark Lucas says he was slightly skeptical when LLLT first came on the market. Lucas has been in the hair-loss field for over 25 years. He’s not only a practiced hair-loss professional, but a patient himself. Lucas says after about 4 months of ongoing treatment, he saw faster growth, stronger strands and lasting color. He’s now a big believer in Capillus low-level laser therapy.

“Now, a patient can treat themselves at home, while they are driving to work… they do not need to come into our office anymore for treatment,” Lucas said. “As far as the schedule goes, it’s a home run.”
