The Capillus RX mobile laser therapy cap uses a special type of laser light that is known to improve circulation and stimulate cellular metabolism within and around the hair follicles of the scalp. Unlike the lasers used for aesthetic skin treatments and tattoo removal, Capillus does not ablate or damage the cells of your skin. Instead, hair restoration is performed with 312 low level lasers that are cool-to-the-touch. In a clinical study over 95% of active participants had increase in hair counts within 17 weeks. Just 12 minutes every other day on the Capillus RX will grow thicker hair.
Step 1: Dr. Bishara Recommends Capillus
First, Dr. Bishara recommends treatment with the Capillus hair loss laser to reverse the signs of thinning, shedding, or balding. Treatment recommendations vary, but might include 30-minute sessions every other day.
Step 2: Laser Therapy Becomes Part of Your Routine
In order to be effective, laser therapy must be incorporated into your daily routine. This is where laser caps like Capillus outshine other treatment options, like in-office domes and laser combs. The wearable and portable design of the Capillus enables comfortable, convenient, and consistent treatment for superior results.
The Capillus Rx provides safe exposure to low-level laser light on a regular basis. Exposure is non-invasive and the lasers are cool, creating a hair loss treatment experience with absolutely no pain or discomfort. Read the white paper on LLLT for hair loss.
Step 4: Circulation and Metabolism Improve Across the Scalp
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is known to improve circulation and cellular metabolism across the scalp. This nourishes hair follicles along the front, top, and sides of the head—even the ones that no longer produce hair.
Step 5: Newer, Fuller Hair Grows Naturally
LLLT continues to improve circulation and cellular metabolism, delivering more blood, nutrients, and oxygen to each hair follicle. Over time, consistent use of the Capillus Rx has been shown to increase hair growth by up to 51%.*
PROPECIA® is available by prescription from Dr. Mark Bisharaand is a once-a-day pill developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss, a hereditary condition that causes receding hairlines, thinning and/or balding on the top and front of the scalp. This product is proven effective for treating hair loss in MEN ONLY.
The active component in PROPECIA® is finasteride, which significantly reduces DHT, a major cause of hair loss, to prevent the affected hair follicles from shrinking any further and allowing hair to regrow.
Nine out of 10 men who took PROPECIA® saw visible results in both a reduction of further hair loss and regrowth of hair. Healthy hair usually grows about half an inch each month, so results may not appear for several months. If there is no improvement within one year, further treatment is unlikely to be effective. However, most men reported an increase in scalp hair within the first 12 months and enjoyed continuing improvement throughout treatment. For some men, PROPECIA® also slowed further hair loss.
There is a risk of certain side effects associated with PROPECIA®, including decreased sex drive, difficulty achieving erection, or a decrease in the amount of semen. Each of these side effects occurs in less than 2% of men taking PROPECIA®. It has also been established that inhibition of a certain enzyme can cause the male breast to engorge or a condition called gynecomastia. Patients should notify their doctor if any of these symptoms are present. PROPECIA® can also affect the results of prostate screening exams, so patients should always notify their physician if they are taking this medication.
PROPECIA® should not be handled by any women of childbearing age, as its active ingredient can cause abnormalities with the sex organs of a male baby. PROPECIA® pills are coated to protect against contact with the active ingredient during normal handling.
Platelet Rich Plasma PRP Therapy is a process by which a hair restoration surgeon takes a small amount (1 vial) of a patient’s own blood and removes the platelets and plasma. The hair restoration surgeon then injects them just under the scalp where hair growth is desired. Scientists believe that the hormones and growth factors in platelet rich plasma hold the key to renewed hair growth as well as turning smaller, thinner hair shafts into thicker, fuller hair. This treatment is available for men AND women.
Because PRP therapy uses your own platelets and plasma, there is no danger of rejection. It also concentrates the good cells from your own body into the area of the scalp where it is needed. Platelet rich plasma therapy is ideal for patients who have follicles with hair that has become smaller and smaller over the years. It is also appropriate for patients who want to slow or even reverse hair loss without surgery.
The latest data indicates 3 PRP therapy treatments has the greatest effectiveness for hair growth stimulation. Many patients get PRP once every other year after the initial 3 treatments.
PRP is used for all Hair Restoration/Hair Loss patients, including patients who come in for Robotic Hair Transplants. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic treatment for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. The use of PRP for the treatment of alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male or female hair loss) is available from Dr. Mark Bishara’s office.
