It is estimated that one in four women suffer from hair loss and over half of men suffer significant hair thinning before the age of 50 but thanks to the team at Theradome it could one day be a thing of the past.
The Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet, which “reawakens dormant hair follicles and makes existing follicles bigger, to stop hair falling out” has been awarded the prestigious Innovation Award at the fourth annual Hollywood Beauty Awards,
The helmet might look super space age and that’s because it is, it was developed by former NASA Biomedical engineer Tamim Hamid, who himself suffered from thinning hair.
FDA cleared for the treatment of hair thinning in women, the Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet has 80 custom made phototherapy lasers to flood the scalp, similar to a clinical laser therapy machine and totally portable.
Laser Phototherapy works by flooding the scalp with light at a specific wavelength and power to increase blood circulation, nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicle. The lasers penetrate the hair follicle to repair the damaged tissue that can lead to hair loss, it reawakens dormant hair follicles and makes existing follicles bigger, to stop hair falling out.
Trichologist Sally-Ann Tarver said: “Throughout our ageing process not only do we have less hair actively growing, our existing hair becomes finer too. This is where Laser Phototherapy really comes into its own and may restore hair diameter to its pre-ageing state.”
“It’s a great honour for me, as a scientist, to be honoured along with such innovators and pioneers in beauty, aesthetics and film,” Hamid said about the award.
“For us, this acknowledgement showcases the importance of the innovation itself, drawing a direct parallel from proven science to the results-oriented beauty world.”
The Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet, which should be worn for 20 minutes, two-four times a week, costs £749. Visit www.theradomeforhairloss.co.uk for more information.Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet
