Portable Laser Hair Growth Cap vs In-house Laser Cap
If you are looking to buy a laser system to regrow thinning hair, you may be wondering which of the two most popular caps is best for you. In this article we will review the Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap which is a portable battery operated system and the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System which is an in-house system which has to be connected to the AC power.
The technology both of these systems is similar, they are both using the LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) of laser light, to stimulate the hair follicles and surrounding stem and cell tissue to produce thicker hair, new hair growth and in some cases get darker too. Both systems are using the same laser wavelength of 650 nanometer which is in the red light spectrum. So as far as the tech side, the two of them are similar.
But there is more to it.
The Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap has like it’s name – 82 laser diodes inside the cap, while the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System has only 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights (all on the same wavelength). The laser diodes are those who really able to generate the beam to penetrate the skin layers.
Even if you take into account that the LED lights can spread the light better inside the iRestore laser cap, still there are only 51 compared to 82 spots of light to transfer the light/heat energy down under the skin.
So in this comparison the Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap has a definite advantage.
Covering The Right Areas With Laser
Both caps have most of the laser on the top part where most of the hair loss usually happens. Most men and women have thinning hair and balding area at the top of the head and forehead line regressing backwards.
The Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap has many laser diodes on the lower part of the hat, which is nice to stimulate but that is not where the problem is.
This may be effective for women who have an even loss of hair thinning all around and not like men only at the top of the head. The Capillus 82 would cover for them more scalp skin with laser.
Portable Vs At Home Hair Growth Treatment
Both systems require 25-30 minutes of each session. While they are both ‘hands free’ (unlike a laser comb) they allow you to hold your mobile or watch TV with the cap on. The main difference is that the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System needs to be connected to the AC in order to work, while the Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap has a power pack as portable carry on.
Allow us to assume most men and women will not leave the house with a laser hair regrowth cap on their head. Thinning hair is such a sensitive issue for men and mega sensitive issue for women, no one will just go shopping with a laser device cap on their head..
Most people do not follow the treatment plan after a few days or weeks, because of the discomfort which comes with being fixed to a spot with ‘a thing’ on the head. So after few month they do not see results as they could have achieved.
A portable laser cap is so much more user friendly it’s an advantage at home more than it is useful outside.
So in our point of view the portable Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap is favorite and more likely to bring results even while having a similar technology compared to the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System.
The iRestore has a full 6 month money back guarantee (less shipping and an applicable restocking fee) to allow users to see results or return the item.
The Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap and the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System are getting good rates and reviews and both are far less expensive than clinic treatments alternatives which use the same technology… (650 nanometer laser).
For those suffering from hair thinning the Capillus 82 Laser Hair Growth Cap which can help prevent the shedding and thinning is worth the investment.
Note different people can expect different results, and the factors for success are quite many. With all this said, the LLLT technology is well researched and many do see a visible improvement in the hair growth condition.
