Capillus Laser Cap

Over time, you might experience hair loss due to the gradual miniaturization of your hair follicles, leading to progressively thinner and shorter hairs. Capillus is a daily-wear laser cap that delivers low-level laser therapy to reverse the miniaturization process and restore hair growth. Capillus laser cap is an FDA-approved laser hair restoration treatment for patients who want a discreet and non-invasive solution to their hair loss problems.

Dr. Christopher C. Chang’s surgical center in Washington DC offers the most advanced and cutting-edge laser treatments and technologies to improve your skin, hair, and overall cosmetic appearance. Dr. Chang has a keen understanding of facial anatomy and hair restoration, and he leverages that insight to help you achieve hair fullness. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your Capillus laser cap treatment options with Dr. Chang today.

What is the Capillus laser cap?

The Capillus system is a simple baseball cap-like device worn on the scalp to stop and reverse hair loss. The Capillus laser cap uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) principles to encourage the growth of healthy and luscious hair. It includes 82-272 laser diodes that deliver consistent laser energy into the hair follicles to increase blood circulation into the dermis, reversing hair loss. You have to wear the Capillus laser cap for 6 to 30 minutes every day.

How does Capillus laser cap work?

The Capillus laser cap reverses the natural process of miniaturization, i.e., the natural process wherein your hair follicles progressively grow weaker with each hair cycle until they stop producing hair altogether. The laser diodes in the laser cap deliver steady streams of laser energy to the scalp to energize the cells and increase blood circulation to the follicles. Over time, your hair grows out thicker, stronger, and more luscious.

How is a Capillus laser cap procedure performed?

The Capillus laser cap procedure starts with a simple consultation with Dr. Chang. He’ll examine your hair loss and discuss your treatment options. The Capillus system is inserted within a baseball cap or hat of your choice. You have to simply wear the cap for 6 to 30 minutes per day as you go about your daily life. Dr. Chang will recommend the ideal treatment time based on your specific condition — you might have to wear the cap for several years.

When do I see the results from a Capillus laser cap?

The Capillus laser cap is a gradual system that restores hair growth in gradual stages, so you won’t see dramatic improvements in a few days or weeks. The following is a general overview of the results you can expect at various stages of the treatment.

  • 0 to 3 Months: You might notice an increase in hair fall as the older hair follicles will be pushed away by newer hair follicles.
  • 3 to 6 Months: You’ll notice a slight decrease in hair fall.
  • 12 Months: You’ll see visible results with a fuller and denser scalp.
  • 24 Months: At this point, you’ll see optimal results from the treatment with a full head of hair.
