Theradome™, developers of the first clinical-level laser hair restoration product, has announced the launch of the Theradome Laser Helmet LH80 PRO, the first FDA and over-the-counter cleared laser hair restoration treatment. The light-based medical treatment was developed for the convenience of in-home use and is clinically tested, and designed for patients suffering from the debilitating effects of thinning hair and Androgenetic Alopecia. Theradome Laser Helmet LH80 PRO is a compact, easy-to-use, over-the-counter helmet that utilizes proven laser light therapy used at dermatologists and hair restoration clinics to grow new healthy hair, while doubling the hair follicle size of existing hair and slowing down or stopping hair loss.
"Temporary, hereditary or long term hair loss is a medical condition that is faced by both men and women. In fact, 40 percent of women have thinning hair. Hair transplants, high-priced oral drugs and clinical-level hair treatments can cost several thousand dollars and clearly, are not an option for everyone," said Tamim Hamid Ph.D., founder and CEO of Theradome, and a former NASA scientist at the Kennedy Space Center. "Theradome provides patients with new found confidence. Our proprietary technology delivers a triple action, safe and effective at-home therapy at a fraction the cost of hair restoration clinics."
The Theradome Laser Helmet LH80 PRO propriety-based laser technology delivers professional level light treatment with every use. Using 80 lasers that provide over 560 mW of low laser light therapy (LLLT), the helmet stimulates the scalp and hair follicles in a state of decline by increasing blood flow and microcirculation, improving cellular metabolism and protein synthesis to restore and maintain a healthy head of hair. It maximizes human hair growth when used twice a week for 20 minutes per session.
Theradome Laser Helmet LH80 PRO underwent clinical trials in June 2012 and showed successful results of various degrees in all test subjects.
"Many of us can relate to the woes of hair loss. Our hair is part of our identity and without it, causes emotional, personal and even professional stress," said Dr. Sara Wasserbauer, a California hair restoration surgeon, member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons, and medical spokesperson for Theradome.
