What are Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) caps?

These caps are a new device that apply a treatment with LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) or Low-Intensity Laser Therapy, that is, a therapy based on LED diodes. In both aesthetic medicine and hair health, there has been a lot of research on the effect of LED heat to stimulate cells in different areas of the skin according to the selected wavelength. Daily exposure of the affected area with this low power laser activates the cells that intervene in the physiological process of hair growth.

This type of caps have 120 diodes and allows to carry out the session outside the clinic. At the end of the session (approximately twelve minutes depending of the cap brand) the device automatically turns off. It can be used at work, the gym, watching television, reading, lying down, in short, wherever it is most comfortable.
