Since It's not working on you doesn't mean you have to be negative about it, It's different for everyone. If you start believing it won't work it's not gonna work its just that simple. Besides it has controlled my hairfall problem and has thickened my hair.
This post is not related to my experience with the Theradome laser helmet. This blog has 3 aspects.
1. My experience with the Theradome laser helmet. These posts will have photos of my hair and may contain some text detailing how I feel at the moment and any observations I made that week with regards to my hair or my Theradome helmet.
2. The Theradome company. These posts report any news I'm able to locate on the subject of Theradome. Recently the news has been negative. I will report any legitimate positive news as soon as I discover it.
3. Other users of the Theradome helmet who are willing to send photos of their hair. Any photos showing progress (hair where hair didn't exist prior to using the Theradome) will be posted. Unfortunately at the moment these types of photos only exist on websites that sell these devices or other forms of LLLT treatments.
This is the only objective site online ive found, and for one- and very appreciative to have this forum. I check it almost daily and enjoy reading the pros and cons.
If it's worked for Alan, I would love to see before and after pictures if he is willing to share- so that I would also feel more optimistic using this device.
Continue the great work blog admin!
THERADOME MISLEADS THE FDA AND GENERAL PUBLIC
The Theradome 510K summary submitted to the FDA, predicates the safety and equivalency of the device off another device, the MEP90. In Section 5 of the 510(k) document Theradome submitted, regarding safety and effectiveness information which led to FDA clearance, is this statement: “The Theradome Laser Helmet LH80 PRO ……….utilizes laser diodes in the helmet to deliver laser stimulation to the ENTIRE SCALP…”).
This statement is allegedly false, misleading and spurious in that the Theradome helmet does NOT “DELIVER LASER STIMULATION TO THE ENTIRE SCALP”. To show this, I suggest that anyone with a Theradome device turn it over and lay a tissue or paper over the laser to see the beam profile. This is the laser beam profile which would be on your scalp. You will clearly see 80 laser SPOTS and then lots of area outside the beam coverage that are NOT receiving any laser energy. In my view there are more areas not receiving any laser energy than areas that are. You will also note that in the most common areas of hair loss that people want to treat, the temporal area (sides of the head) and the vertex (‘bald spot’ on the top of the head in back) has very little laser light coverage and therefore leaves much of the scalp untreated.
Additionally, Theradome calculated the power output of their device, by measuring the energy coming from the laser that lands in a 1 square centimeter. Each laser only covers 1-2 square cm and only these specific sized areas are receiving the full amount of laser energy (HOT SPOTS). Those areas outside of the laser beam coverage are not receiving any laser energy (BLANK SPOTS). Therefore, the Theradome does not “deliver laser stimulation to the entire scalp” as Theradome claims in their 510(k) submission.
Based on this information, I believe that Theradome is allegedly attempting to mislead the FDA and general public, by filing their FDA 510K submission to the FDA with false and misleading information. This to me is a very serious situation, as all FDA submissions need to contain truthful and accurate statements signed by a company officer.
