Women face a special type of hair loss, so it’s no wonder a unique solution is needed. Unlike male pattern baldness, female hair loss occurs in a more diffuse manner that is sometimes harder to detect. With an estimated 20-30 million women affected by hair loss in the United States alone, physicians are increasingly developing technologies and treatment protocols exclusively designed to help women overcome the personal, social, and professional setbacks caused by this traumatic condition.
The most common cause of hair loss in women is androgenetic alopecia, which is a hereditary condition. Unlike androgenetic alopecia in men, female pattern baldness rarely results in complete hair loss. Patterns of androgenetic alopecia hair loss in women can vary widely but usually include a diffuse thinning over the entire scalp with variations of areas of more noticeable thinning towards the back, front, and frontal hairline.
Traditionally, women have had few viable options to reverse the signs of hair loss. The most popular include the following:
- Minoxidil (Rogaine®) is a topical solution that has been prescribed for application twice a day. This is not a very favorable option for many because it only aims to treat the part, and is a messy application process, akin to dying hair at the roots.
- Finasteride (generic name for Propecia®), which is a treatment option for men, is not approved for use by women as it has been shown to cause birth defects in children.
- Hair transplant surgery is a more expensive but often permanent treatment for female hair loss. If the idea of surgery makes you feel uneasy, you are not alone. Many women hesitate to engage in hair transplant surgery due to the nature of the procedure and the post-operative healing process it entails.
And now, LLLT technology, a medically tested-and-proven hair loss prevention and reversal option for both women and men recommended by physicians to grow thicker, fuller hair.
Today, devices like Capillus® caps utilize Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) a sound science that has long been used in various medical fields. Capillus® caps utilized LLLT technology with a localized total energy output from 84 medical-grade laser diodes, to comfortably treat the scalp for prevention and reversal of hair loss in both women and men.

Why is LLLT Technology a game-changer when it comes to hair loss? How does it work to stimulate hair growth and improve blood circulation on the scalp?
Within the mitochondria, red light stimulates an enzyme known as cytochrome c oxidase. This causes your mitochondria to produce more energy, or Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This extra energy enables the body to begin repairing damaged tissues and send vital nutrients to your hair follicles, restarting the hair growth process.
Red light can also cause your blood vessels to expand – increasing the flow of blood throughout your scalp. Pair this with the accelerated production of ATP, and now lots of energy and resources are available to grow new hair.
What is Capillus® FOCAL MEDIAL proven to do for customer’s seeing hair loss?
For customers that are experiencing hair loss, we have treatments that can target specific or broad regions of the scalp. Our Focal lineup focuses light on different areas of your scalp and are made with men and women in mind since hair loss is experienced differently between them. For women, hair loss starts where the hair parts at the top/middle part of their head. For men, hair loss begins at the crown and temples. That is why our lineup has treatments for all these regions.
The technology behind Capillus Focals is red-light therapy. Utilizing medical-grade laser diodes, red light helps stimulate your hair follicles while also improving blood flow so that more nutrients can reach the hair follicle to help grow healthier and stronger hair.
