The Science Behind The Theradome Pro Lh80 And Evo Lh40

In 1965, a Hungarian physician named Dr. Endre Mester accidentally discovered that shining low-level laser light on shaven mice grew their fur back quicker. He had no idea that this discovery would revolutionize the hair restoration industry and lead to the Theradome PRO LH80 AND EVO LH40.

Yes, it was due to a failed experiment and a confused lab assistant that Dr. Mester paved the foundation for laser hair therapy. So how did we go from there to today's state-of-the-art devices?

The Creation of the Theradome LH80 Pro

A former NASA scientist and biomedical engineer actually developed Theradome laser helmets for hair loss. These helmets leverage the latest advances in science and technology to restore hair. There are four crucial scientific principles that drive optimal hair restoration results. Together, they decrease shedding, increase hair shaft diameter, and grow new hair.

When a hair follicle dies, its nutrient supply is essentially cut off. The exact causes that lead to hair death can vary. However, in most cases, there is an overproduction if dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This causes hair follicle miniaturization. Of course, no one wants “miniature hair”, so this is where powerful laser hair therapy comes into play.

Rather than minimize the production of DHT, as some medications do, the Theradome PRO LH80 Laser Hair Growth Device opens a new pathway to nourish malnourished hair follicles in desperate need of energy. We call this pathway the “photonic pathway”, derived from the word “photon”– which was coined by the Great Albert Einstein and can be translated as “bundle of light”. To simplify things, think of a photon as an oscillating particle of light, and forget about Einstein’s crazy hairdo.

By energizing the base of hair follicles with laser light, the Theradome applies the First Law of Photochemistry to perfection. This law states that “Light must be absorbed for a photochemical reaction to occur. If light is not absorbed by the cell, it will not be stimulated.” Yes, it’s the base of a hair follicle that must absorb laser energy, which will then be converted to chemical energy under the right circumstances.


The Importance of Your Mitochondria

Well, all human cells are fueled by mitochondria, often called “the powerhouse of the cell”. Once laser light stimulates mitochondria, it produces energy that can then be used by a hair follicle. Simple, right?

So if you don’t treat hair loss at a cellular level (a.k.a.– by targeting the base of hair follicles buried 3 – 5 mm under the scalp), please do yourself a favor and throw out whatever so-called laser hair therapy unit you might be using.

Now that you’ve accepted that “it’s all about the base”, how does the Theradome ensure its powerful coherent light zips through 3 – 5 mm of obstacles buried under the scalp? .

Laser vs LEDs

The Theradome LH80 PRO only uses lasers, since they produce coherent light and can penetrate the scalp at the required depth. The term “coherence” means the photons that make up a wave of energy are all traveling in synchronicity. This means that they will not lose power once they reach their destination. Because LEDs light waves aren't aligned, they do not retain power output as they travel.

So once again, if you’ve bought an LED hair growth treatment device, please do yourself a favor and get rid of it now.

The Importance of Wavelength

Next comes the wavelength. Different wavelengths of light stimulate different parts of the body. Tanning beds, for instance, emit UV light that stimulates human skin (and no, we are not advocating the use of tanning beds). So which wavelength of light is best to use for hair growth? Throughout the years, TheradomeTM happens to have thoroughly done its homework and has narrowed this wavelength down to 678 ± 8 nm.

This specific wavelength corresponds to red light. Not convinced? Recalling that white light is composed of all visible colors, try shining a flashlight on one of your fingers. Your finger will light up with a glowing red color (just like E.T. the Extraterrestrial) because only red light manages to go through human tissue. And E.T. also happened to use his glowing finger for healing purposes before phoning home and leaving Earth. A mere coincidence...?

So we’ve got coherence, we’ve got the wavelength...what else is missing?

The Proper Energy Dose

Hair growth treatment sessions with the Theradome only last 20 minutes. Why? That's how long it takes for our coherent laser beams to deliver an optimal energy dosage to your hair follicles. Think of a proper energy dosage as you think of medication. You would never take a different dose of medication than your doctor prescribed.

So the exact time required to deliver an optimal dose of energy for stimulation is 20 minutes. And forget about brushing your hair with a laser comb during a 20-minute treatment window. As you impatiently comb your hair, rushing through your treatment and wishing that your hair would poof! just grow back, you’ll be targeting different areas of your scalp for approximately 4 – 30 seconds. So no area gets treated with the correct energy dosage while using a laser comb.

For the third (and last) time, do yourself a favor if you’ve purchased one of these­ deceptive devices– get rid of it. Or sell it to someone who hasn’t read this eye-opening article.

To summarize everything, the Theradome PRO LH80 and EVO LH40 use proprietary lasers to penetrate the scalp and reach the base of hair follicles. Should you forget everything else in this article, please at least remember this part. The most important concept of laser hair therapy is that coherent laser light must reach the base of hair follicles for effective stimulation. The Theradome achieves this with an optimized wavelength, an optimal energy dosage, and the proper treatment time.
