4 Tips to Choosing the Right Laser Hair Regrowth Treatment

Shopping is usually straightforward: you walk into a store, browse through clothes, gadgets, and books, and make your purchase. Simple as that. However, shopping for laser hair loss treatments is a different story.

When it comes to buying a laser cap/helmet online, the process can feel overwhelming. What rules should you follow? How can you tell which products work? Don't worry! Follow our four easy tips to discover the best laser hair regrowth treatment and achieve gorgeous locks as you begin your online beauty search.

1) Look for a Device with True Lasers

Did you know that hair follicles are located 3 to 5 mm under the scalp? Only laser light with the optimal wavelength is powerful enough to penetrate that depth and effectively energize your hair follicles. If the device you’re considering uses Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) or a combination of LEDs and lasers, it won’t do the job. Not only are LEDs ineffective, but they also produce excess heat, which can cause hair shedding.

Unsure if a laser helmet uses actual lasers or LEDs, or if it has the optimal wavelength? Contact the manufacturer and ask for specifications. Better yet, choose laser hair therapy devices made in the U.S. Only premium devices, manufactured to the highest engineering standards, and using 100% lasers with no LEDs, can provide you with glamorous hair, rich in texture and volume. 

2) Look a device that provides consistent light energy output

Some laser hair regrowth treatments use pulsed lasers, meaning they turn on and off. This is often done to minimize the heat and thus reduce hair shedding caused by excessive heat. However, this also means you receive only about half of a true laser hair therapy session. Ensure your device emits consistent light energy to receive full treatments, leading to more new hair growth, extra density, and fullness.

3) Look for a device which has the right number of lasers

While it might seem that more lasers are better, that's not always the case. Devices with over eighty lasers can generate excess heat, reducing their power output and potentially causing hair shedding. To maximize hair count and thickness, opt for devices with around 80 lasers and ensure they have an efficient ventilation system.

Some high-quality devices, like Theradome, address the heat issue by incorporating 24-carat gold heat sinks for each laser to help control heat and keep the scalp cool, along with a ventilated design. Other low-level laser therapy (LLLT) devices may add more LEDs and lasers as a marketing tactic, charging more without increasing effectiveness. This can be very misleading. Always prioritize devices designed to manage heat effectively and avoid unnecessary LEDs.

4) Look for a wearable device with full coverage

Manually moving a device around your head or combing your hair can be tedious and time-consuming. Moreover, it’s essential for all your hair follicles to receive adequate energy during treatment. Choose a wearable laser helmet that offers maximum scalp coverage for optimal results.

Wondering how much energy your follicles need to minimize shedding and strengthen your hair? Research by a Swedish clinician has shown that 20 minutes of constant laser light at the optimal wavelength and energy output is the therapeutic dose. Adhering to this guideline can help ensure you receive the full benefits of your laser hair therapy sessions.


In conclusion, while shopping for laser hair loss treatments may seem daunting at first, following a few key guidelines can simplify the process. By choosing a device with true lasers, ensuring it provides constant light, selecting the right number of lasers, and opting for full coverage, you can confidently invest in a laser hair restoration treatment that works. These tips will help you achieve the luscious, thick hair you desire, making your online beauty search both effective and rewarding.
