Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Bay Area hair restoration surgeon, Sara Wasserbauer, M.D., stays on top of the latest advancements and research in hair restoration, often participating in the medical advancements herself. Wasserbauer is researching and studying the effects of the new Theradome LH80 laser helmet that can be used at home to help individuals improve hair thickness, volume, and density. The Theradome laser helmet is the newest advancement on the market to treat hair loss, and has been approved by the FDA for efficacy and safety.
Dr. Wasserbauer is looking for 20 patients to document their experience with the Theradome laser helmet. Eligible patients include those who have not changed their therapeutic regimen in the past year, those who can’t use Rogaine or Propecia or other non-surgical options for hair growth, and hair transplant patients who want to maximize their surgical results. Those eligible for the study will receive a free Theradome helmet. Patients included in the study must keep their hair one inch or longer, and consent to taking photos and other metrics to document their therapeutic results.
Women in particular may benefit from the use of the Theradome device. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 40 percent of women have visible hair loss by the time they are age 40—a concern for many women’s self image and emotional well-being. Theradome is the first and only FDA-approved, over-the-counter, hand-free laser treatment for hair loss, and can improve hair growth in just two 20-minute treatments a week. The laser helmet treats the full scalp area with 80 proprietary lasers that deliver the optimum wavelength of light to stimulate hair growth.
“Traditional therapies to help treat female hair loss were typically only available in medical practice settings, and the cost was often prohibitive,” said Dr. Wasserbauer. “Theradome offers women a less expensive clinical strength alternative that can be done safely in their own home. I’ve spent a lot of time researching this device, and the results can be significant, especially for women suffering from androgenetic alopecia. The purpose of my own study is to determine what kind of results can be found with specific factors, such as following a hair transplant, and for documenting the changes over the course of the hair growth cycle – typically a full year.”
The Theradome LH80 laser helmet was designed by a leading expert in health and biomedical engineering who suffered from hair loss himself. The system offers clinical strength hair growth therapy that can be done in the comfort of home for a fraction of the cost of office-based systems.
The laser helmet is available for study participants at Dr. Wasserbauer’s hair restoration practice, located at 1299 Newell Hill Place, Suite 200, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.
