Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low level laser therapy, or LLLT, is a medical treatment that employs a “cold” laser to treat a variety of medical conditions. Since the 1950s, more than 40 independent studies have produced evidence that low level laser therapy reduces inflammation, improves circulation, and nourishes cellular tissue. Today, laser therapy for hair loss is a leading non-surgical hair restoration technique designed to help both men and women suffering from thinning, shedding, or bald spots.

Dr. James E. Vogel is pleased to offer the Capillus272 Pro, a leading laser therapy cap designed to help adults prevent hair loss and encourage natural hair growth.

Laser Hair Treatment with Capillus272 Pro

Laser hair therapy is a new approach to non-surgical hair restoration that uses the proven effectiveness of “cold” laser technology to gently encourage natural hair growth. In as little as 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times each week, Capillus272 Pro can improve blood flow and hair follicle function across the scalp. By improving circulation and hair follicle health, Capillus272 Pro stimulates thicker, fuller, and more consistent hair growth. Light therapy for hair loss (LLLT) has no known side effects and may be combined with other hair loss therapies, such as topical foams, prescription medicines, and hair transplant procedures.
