Another week of Theradome usage. No news to report. We have four months left of this laser helmet experiment. Hair is getting to the length where progress photos are difficult to judge.
You're scalp does seem less visable, I don't see how it would be getting worse.
Good, bad or indifferent.....I call them as I see them.
weeks 1-16...I thought Dome/Blog had regressed and I gave specific reasons why.
weeks 17-32...I thought Dome/Blog hair "quality" had improved greatly......not necessarily new regrowth.
weeks 33-36...to me it seems he is going thru another typical cycle phase as it appears his hair has thinned in the last three weeks. This will happen many times.....especially since he never used any other treatments prior to the radome and nizoral.
In the end, it does not matter what I or any one else says.......the proof in the pudding will be in the 1 year progress pictures.
Unlike minoxidil... "Proper" LLT therapy is more of a healing/rebuilding treatment and for many this will be a longer journey...but also with more lasting results.
Hey weebly, I'd give it more time and I concur with Stevo's comments. I saw a YouTube post of someone on your weebly blog and he has had very good results so far. Some golfer guy.
I have to say I am very impressed with my results so far considering I used a 300 diode helmet before.
You mentioned several times that many aren't seeing results.
It is deceiving as the majority of people who like a product regardless of what it is or does don't review online. The majority of people who are online complain so you only see the negative online. This can be for anything like an iPhone or whatever. The truth is when someone is happy with something they move on with their life and don't have a need to post. OMG even told me this when I asked for reviews on the laser messiah and it makes a lot of sense to me. I am so impressed with laser therapy especially the Theradome that I may provide a testimonial in some more months with pictures if I can since it is something that is working for me and I wish the company success because of that.
I don't know if my hair improvement is accelerating now that I am technically beyond the year mark of LLLT in general or if it's because now I am using Theradome. I believe it's a combination of the two since the wavelength is optimal without over stimulating. Also, I started taking better care of my scalp condition since starting theradome, i.e. alternating medicated shampoos, derma rolling once a week and now applying emu to moisten my scalp. Although I started seeing results with just the helmet and shampoos. I post here and on hair loss help as I never thought I'd be able to get my hair back since I don't take propecia or use rogaine. I want others to know that proper laser therapy works and I want others to be helped because hair loss sucks and you don't know until you go through it. It is strange seeing my friends now starting to lose their hair (I started 10 years ago and they were making jokes about my hair then) and now my hair loss is actually starting reverse. I hope a day comes in the near future where they ask me how and I'll gladly tell them. I appreciate your blog and I'll continue to hope that you see results. It is a painfully slow process but I'll wait as I can't wait for the day where I just need to maintain and not have to think about my thin hair.
I've been reading up on other sites that the helmet/battery solution is not going to work as there is insufficient power in the batteries to drive the lasers hard enough to be effective. The inference is that it requires a mains powered system to get any real benefit. Not surprisingly this is from a competing products website..
Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this? I'm not an electrical expert but it seems to me that 80 x 5 mw lasers would'nt require that much power. Can anyone do the math to confirm if batteries should reasonably be able to provide sufficient power for the helmet?
Assuming the wiring is in parallel, all diodes get the same voltage. One AA battery has about 2 Amps (2000 mAmp) per hour discharge for example. The laser messiah uses diodes that require about 30mAmp and uses a 9Amp (9000mAmp) power supply. 9000/30 equals 300 diodes. 80 lasers in the theradome divided by 300 lasers in the messiah equals approximately 0.267. Multiply the .267 times 9000 and you get 2400mAmp. That means you'll need 2400mAmp in 20 min or 7200mAmp in one hour. So 3 AA could do that I believe. Depending on the laser diode requirements and battery, it is definitely feasible.
I can completely see the changes! From your first photos to here, your hair looks HEALTHY, so much fuller, thicker, less stringy, so much less scalp showing through. Don't you don't see it?
Congrats and keep going :) Your hair looks great
