Prescription-Strength Laser Therapy Technology
LaserCap uses pulsed wave emission for a higher strength treatment.
Not only is The Original LaserCap a clinically proven, FDA-cleared device, but also it delivers the strongest laser therapy treatment for hair regrowth on the market. Key to LaserCap's prescription-strength is that it is engineered to deliver light with pulsed wave emission. This involves switching off and on its lasers many times per second during treatment, causing them to blink, rather than remain on continuously. Studies have demonstrated that pulsing can improve LLLT outcomes.¹
This is because pulsing more effectively manages heat, allowing the laser diodes to cool during the fraction of a second they switch off. As a result, several device and treatment parameters can be optimized without excess heat generation, which may otherwise cause damage to the device, and discomfort for the patient.
Pulse wave emission, or pulsing, involves switching on and off a light source many times per second, releasing light energy in short representative bursts. This is different from most light sources which output light at a constant rate, also known as continuous wave emission
Higher Energy Dose Per Treatment
Pulsing allows for LLLT treatments at higher intensities and longer durations.¹ Since LaserCap is both one of the most powerful LLLT devices for hair regrowth on the market, and uses pulsed output, it delivers a much higher dose of light energy per treatment than comparable devices which use continuous output. Most of these devices in fact deliver a dose of energy well below what experts consider to be optimal.²
*Energy doses are calculated from device parameters and manufacturer-recommended treatment protocols.
Higher Peak Intensity
Peak intensity, the maximum amount of energy output per unit area over any given time period, determines how deeply light can penetrate into tissues.¹ Pulse wave emission allows LaserCap to deliver light at higher peak intensity without excess heat generation because this energy can be delivered over a very short period of time - much higher than continuous output devices with similar number of laser diodes. This is important when applying LLLT for hair regrowth, since light must penetrate through the surface layer of the skin to reach the base of the follicle.

More Consistent Output
Heat exposure can cause the power output of lasers to drop dramatically, resulting in an inconsistent and unpredictable dose of energy delivered to the patient. Even small, barely perceptible amounts of excess heat can cause this. From internal testing we found that the power output of continuous devices, such as the Capillus Pro, can decline by more than 30%, even over a 6 minute treatment. By comparison, decrease in the power output of the LaserCap was negligible over a much longer 30 minute period.

Improved Device Durability and Longevity
Since pulsing gives LLLT devices some time to cool off and rest, they are not as stressed during a treatment and over the long term, resulting in fewer device failures, and a greater device lifespan. This is important because LLLT treatments for hair regrowth must be applied continuously to maintain results. The durability of the LaserCap is unmatched due to pulsing in addition to our excellent quality control. In fact we have patients who have been using the same LaserCap device for over 10 years!
