You can purchase the wireless Theradome PRO LH80 laser hair growth helmet from Amazon after reading the reviews. Also available is the cheaper Theradome EVO LH40. Both devices can be discounted when on sale. Make sure to also search for coupons expiring in 2020 and beyond. You can also find used ones on ebay.
Theradome Laser Helmet is Here
I decided to write my original post on laser and hair growth after reading about a new laser device called the Theradome. Since the HairMax Lasercomb first became popular a decade ago, a number of new laser products and contraptions have entered the market. However, it seems like the Theradome (released in 2013) is the first one that is getting as much publicity as the HairMax Lasercomb. Update: Also see my posts on iRestore for a comparison.
LLLT Devices Popularity
What really struck me about this whole LLLT business is that so many people are willing to splurge for these devices. The proven benefits of LLLT when it comes to hair growth are limited. There are even disputes about the appropriate wavelength of low-level laser devices.
Theradome raised close to half a million dollars (!) via its crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo in 2013. Quite surprising considering that it is a new device with few ratings and reviews. Edit: 75 reviews on Amazon as of 2019, and 114 reviews on Costco’s website. The campaign’s initial funding goal was $50,000, which I thought as somewhat optimistic. Perhaps my opinion is clouded by seeing the weak results of numerous other kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns.
On the campaign home page, you can see a tab for number of founders, and the total is 1,266. The vast majority of those names are “anonymous” with no country of origin displayed. All the people who bid $395 in the campaign were given a Theradome unit in return.
Theradome Cost and FDA Clearance
The current cost of the Theradome is $795 on the company’s website. Also see their Youtube channel and their Twitter. Edit: Prices in 2019 vary depending on model. The most reviewed version of the HairMax Lasercomb is selling for a substantially less $320 on Amazon at the moment. The Lasercomb has been given FDA clearance for marketing to both males and females.
The Theradome laser is advertised as being the “First and Only FDA OTC Cleared Clinical Strength Laser Hair Therapy for Home Use”. It has been given FDA 510(k) clearance and is not likely to result in any serious side effects with correct use. The device comes with a 1-year warranty, and you can order replacement parts and batteries from the manufacturer.
