Capillus Laser Therapy “Safe and Effective” at Treating Female Androgenetic Alopecia: Published Study

AlixPartners Forecasts: Household Products Could Cost U.S. Manufacturers and Consumers 15% More This Year Due to Resin Shortage

While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing. But how is this process controlled, and with what specific tools? Read on.

Capillus Laser Therapy Published Study to Treat Female Androgenetic Alopecia

A peer-reviewed study authored by Dr. Shelly Friedman, D.O., F.A.O.C.D. and supported by Patricia Schnoor, BSBA, confirms that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with Capillus® may play a considerable role in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia for females, given the impartial evidence illustrating favorable hair regrowth results. The research was published in the June 2017 edition of Dermatologic Surgery, the official journal of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, encouraging familiarity of LLLT as a practical method of fighting hair loss at home within the greater medical community.

Dr. Friedman of the Scottsdale Institute for Cosmetic Dermatology is a board-certified hair restoration surgeon with nearly three decades of experience treating over 15,000 patients with hair loss. Patricia Schnoor is the head of quality assurance and governmental affairs at Capillus, overseeing the assembly, testing and quality control for Capillus’ line of FDA-cleared at-home laser caps.

The study’s circulation is expected to pave access to new international markets, allowing more individuals to undergo laser therapy hair loss treatment by way of physician prescription or recommendation.

Evidence Based Practice Guidelines:  Fernando Bermúdez, Director of International Distribution at Capillus, “Performing and publishing clinical research under the rigor of a prestigious journal is of critical importance for doctors prescribing under evidence based practice guidelines.” He added, “Published data is also a reference for increasingly savvy consumers wanting to make an educated purchase decision before committing to a long-term treatment.”

The purpose of this randomized controlled trial was to outline the effects of photobiomodulation, or laser light, on the hair follicle and surrounding tissues in patients suffering from hair loss. The subjects consisted of 44 healthy females ages 18 to 60 years who were recruited at two separate board–approved treatment sites.

The Capillus272™ Pro was used in the study under the alias of a “handi-dome” laser device. Using the discreet dome insert with laser diodes operating at 650 nm, active participants receiving LLLT with the Capillus272 Pro™ showed a 51 percent mean increase in hair counts compared to patients who used a seemingly identical yet defunct device.

The researchers concluded that low-level laser treatment administered for 30 minutes every other day for 17 weeks is both safe and effective in treating androgenetic alopecia in healthy females between the ages of 18 to 60 with Fitzpatrick skin Types I to IV and Ludwig–Savin Baldness Scale I-2 to II-2 baldness patterns. No side effects or adverse reactions were reported by any subject at any time during the study.
