5 Benefits of the Laser Cap

5 Benefits of the Laser Cap

You live a busy life. Between work, your family, social life, hobbies, and more, it can be hard to find time to relax. You might feel like you’re in the spotlight 24/7 and you want to look your best.

If you’re like the majority of aging men, you’re probably experiencing some degree of hair loss and are looking for a way to improve it. While there are a lot of hair loss treatments on the market, most come with discomfort and long recovery times.

Now there’s a discrete treatment that can be done on your own time to improve hair loss. A laser cap increases hair thickness and covers bald patches in just a few months. At Hair Doc, located in San Francisco, California, we’re here to explain five benefits of laser caps to help you decide if it’s for you.

1. Done on your own time

While you probably heard of Rogaine®, you might not have heard of a laser cap. A laser cap is a cutting-edge technology that involves low-level lasers. These lasers are placed on your head in a cap and emit photons to stimulate your scalp tissue and encourage weak hair follicles to grow. 

While most hair loss treatments require a lot of appointments to our office, the laser cap can be done on your own time. Just wear the cap while you work, read, do housework, or cook, and experience thicker hair.

2. It’s discreet

The laser cap is designed specifically for discretion — it’s sleek and fits snug on your head. This allows it to be easily hidden underneath a hat and worn in public if you desire. 

Because treatment times are only approximately 15-30 minutes 3-4 times a week, most patients can easily squeeze it into the hours spent at home. Sit back and relax while you watch TV and experience healthy new hair growth in as little as three months.

3. No incisions

You might have heard of a Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) or Follicular Unit Excision (FUE). While they offer results, they are surgical procedures that involve placing incisions into your scalp. This involves a level of discomfort and a healing process that may not be suitable for some people.

The laser cap is a completely pain-free method that doesn’t involve any nips, tucks, or stitches. This makes it a great option for patients who have a low pain tolerance or who may not be good candidates for the FUT or FUE.

4. No downtime

Want to get thicker hair without anyone knowing you had work done? A laser cap can do exactly because no downtime is associated with treatment.

That means you won’t have to take off work to schedule multiple appointments at our office. You don’t have to stop your life or daily routine to heal from other surgical means of hair restoration. No one will even know you had treatment — unless you tell them.

Many of our patients love the laser cap treatment because it requires fewer appointments than other methods of hair restoration. 

5. Can be combined with other treatments

Many of our patients, especially those in the early stages of hair loss, find the laser cap to be the perfect standalone treatment. However, if you have a greater degree of hair loss and want to get faster results, the laser cap can safely be used with other treatments.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a great minimally invasive treatment for patients who want to double down on hair restoration. For those looking for the most dramatic results, they may wish to use the laser cap after receiving an FUE or FUT. 

No matter what degree of hair loss you’ve experienced, we have a treatment option for you. Whether you want to learn more about a laser cap or another treatment, the fastest way to have thicker hair is by calling us today.
