How Laser Hair Growth Works
The Capillus272 uses a special type of laser light that is known to improve circulation and stimulate cellular metabolism within and around the hair follicles of the scalp. Unlike the lasers used for aesthetic skin treatments and tattoo removal, Capillus does not ablate or damage the cells of your skin. Instead, hair restoration is performed with low level lasers that are cool-to-the-touch. Step 1: Dr. Bishara Recommends Capillus First, Dr. Bishara recommends treatment with the Capillus hair loss laser to reverse the signs of thinning, shedding, or balding. Treatment recommendations vary, but might include 30-minute sessions every other day. Step 2: Laser Therapy Becomes Part of Your Routine In order to be effective, laser therapy must be incorporated into your daily routine. This is where laser caps like Capillus outshine other treatment options, like in-office domes and laser combs. The wearable and portable design of the Capillus enables comfortable, convenient, and consistent treatment for superior results. Step 3: Hair Follicles Receive Low Level Laser Stimulation The Capillus272 provides safe exposure to low-level laser light on a regular basis. Exposure is non-invasive and the lasers are cool, creating a hair loss treatment experience with absolutely no pain or discomfort. Step 4: Circulation and Metabolism Improve Across the Scalp Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is known to improve circulation and cellular metabolism across the scalp. This nourishes hair follicles along the front, top, and sides of the head—even the ones that no longer produce hair. Step 5: Newer, Fuller Hair Grows Naturally LLLT continues to improve circulation and cellular metabolism, delivering more blood, nutrients, and oxygen to each hair follicle. Over time, consistent use of the Capillus272 has been shown to increase hair growth by up to 51%.*
Benefits of Capillus Laser Cap
Capillus is continually recommended by world-renowned physicians as a safe, proven, and effective method of non-surgical hair restoration. Below are just a few of the benefits offered only by Capillus. Discrete. Capillus272 is a flexible dome-like insert that fits securely within your favorite baseball cap or hat. Simply insert, wear, and enjoy the benefits of laser hair restoration with complete discretion. Portable. Capillus272 is powered by a portable battery pack, enabling you to take your hair loss treatment anywhere. Powerful. With 272 lasers, the Capillus272 is capable of greater energy output than any other available laser cap. Greater output delivers a higher degree of hair follicle stimulation, which can ultimately lead to better results. Effective. In premarketing study for FDA clearance, the Capillus272 demonstrated the ability to effectively promote hair regrowth when compared to a placebo device. On average, patients experienced a 51% increase in hair counts.* Safe. Capillus272 has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenic alopecia, or hair loss.

Although platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for many years in other medical specialties, including orthopedics, it has only recently become one of the latest techniques with hair restoration. PRP is used for all Hair Restoration/Hair Loss patients, including patients who have Robotic Hair Transplants. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic treatment for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. The use of PRP for the treatment of alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male or female hair loss) is available from Dr. Mark Bishara’s office. While PRP is in the early stages of scientific research in hair restoration, PRP is not meant to replace current FDA approved therapies such as DHT blockers and Minoxidil. but it is a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss. What is PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma? PRP Platelet Rich Plasma is the use of a person’s own blood platelets to enhance hair growth as a stand-alone treatment or to improve the recovery and results of hair transplant surgery. In the field of cell therapy and tissue regeneration, research is continuing to progress regarding the use of PRP’s ability to stimulate stem cells, improve wound healing, and rejuvenate skin and hair follicles. PRP is done in 3 month intervals Growth Factors The human growth hormone (hGH), insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF or FGF-2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB)- levels are significantly elevated after PRP injection, supporting a possible ergogenic effect of PRP. What is LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) The LaserCap® using Low Level Laser Technology (LLLT) can help men and women of all ages who suffer from hair loss by emitting pulses of laser light energy to the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles and improve blood circulation in the area, encouraging hair growth once again. Men and women being treated for hair loss sit comfortably under the lasers as it gently delivers the phototherapy to the scalp. Most of our patients read a magazine during treatments. There is no pain or discomfort from the therapy–some patients do report some “scalp-tingling.” The laser cap is much more successful and effective in hair restoration then hand held devices that are available on the market. The usual treatments occur 2-3 times per week. The laser cap is available to have treatments done in our office, or can be purchased and take home with you. For more information on PRP, LLLT and other hair restoration treatments, please call our office at (817) 473-2120. Please come in and get evaluated with an endocrine testing panel, that tests your thyroid, testosterone, iron, and serotonin levels, to name a few. We also refer out for scalp biopsies for female patients, to determine the causes of hair loss.

Hair restoration includes the surgical and non-surgical methods used to counteract or slow symptoms of hair loss in men and women. Methods may be used individually or in combination to produce the desired results depending on a person’s needs. Finding the right hair restoration solution can be difficult. It’s an important decision that can improve your life in unimaginable ways. But one size does not fit all types of hair loss.
Getting straight answers about hair loss treatments for men can be almost as frustrating as losing your hair. Some guys are great candidates for hair transplant surgery, others prefer the lifestyle advantages of the hair replacement process, and some simply want to prevent their existing hair from thinning any further. No matter what kind of hair loss you have, it’s an ongoing process that changes over time. Dr. Mark Bishara’s office offers a variety of treatment options, including non-surgical and surgical.
Millions of women suffer from hair loss, more than 30 million in the U.S. alone. And while most treatments available today seem to be designed with men in mind, the good news is that there are safe, proven treatments designed especially for women. Women’s hair–and women’s experiences with hair loss–are very different. That’s why Dr. Bishara will first assess why you are having hair loss and what option we can do to help you.
HAIR RESTORATION OPTIONS:
PROPECIA® is available by prescription from Dr. Mark Bishara and is a once-a-day pill developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss, a hereditary condition that causes receding hairlines, thinning and/or balding on the top and front of the scalp. This product is proven effective for treating hair loss in MEN ONLY. Some women are candidates for Propecia (finasteride).
LOW LEVEL LASER TECHNOLOGY (LLLT)
The low- level laser therapy treatment is also known as “The Cold Laser”. The laser light generated by low-powered (cold) lasers has recently come into use as a non-surgical hair restoration treatment for patten hair loss. The LaserCap® using Low Level Laser Technology (LLLT) can help men and women of all ages who suffer from hair loss by emitting pulses of laser light energy to the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles and improve blood circulation in the area, encouraging hair growth once again.
ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANTS- THE ARTAS SYSTEM
Dr. Bishara uses the ARTAS System, which is an interactive, computer assisted equipment employs image guidance to enhance the quality of hair follicle harvesting. Performed in both of Dr. Bishara’s offices (Mansfield & Southlake), FUE robotic hair transplant moves healthy, functioning follicles to the areas of the patient’s scalp most impacted by baldness. The implanted hairs develop their own blood supply, begin to grow and new hairs are seen a few months after the procedure has taken place. New hair continues to grow over the course of a full year, making the change in the patient’s appearance gradually noticeable to others. Healing time is short, and there is no resultant linear scar as happens with other methods of hair restoration, because there is no incision. This procedure is done on men and women. Hair loss is a condition that occurs as a result of a side-effect of medication, aging, genetics, and traumatic injury to the scalp with scarring. Hair loss affects both men and women of all ages. This condition may cause pattern baldness, patchy spots or thinned hair. Dr. Mark Bishara offers a wide range of comprehensive hair restoration procedures, which are highly effective. The best treatment option for each patient depends on the location, cause, and extent of hair loss. We will take the time to evaluate each patient, discuss his/her individual goals and together develop a personalized treatment plan using one of our many successful hair loss treatment options.

Low level laser therapy is a safe form of light treatment (a type of ) under investigation for a variety of health indications. It is being used to treat the genetic forms of hair loss common in men and women, androgenetic alopecia or pattern balding. Low level laser therapy is also called red light therapy, cold laser, soft laser, biostimulation and photobiomodulation.
Low level laser therapy for pattern balding
Laser therapy used for hair loss treatment depends on devices that emit a light that can penetrate the scalp. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) uses devices with diodes that emit red light (wavelength 630-670 nanometers
Who are the best candidates for low level laser therapy for hair loss?
Low level laser therapy is intended for men and women with thinning hair or pattern baldness caused by a hereditary condition.
How is laser hair therapy supposed to work?
The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: growth (anagen phase), resting (telogen phase) and shedding (catagen phase). Hair loss in androgenetic alopecia depends on a testosterone derivative in the skin, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Low level laser therapy is believed to increase blood flow in the scalp and stimulate metabolism in catagen or telogen follicles, resulting in the production of anagen hair. In theory:
The photons of light act on cytochrome C oxidase leading to the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This is converted to cyclic AMP in the hair follicle cells, releasing energy and stimulating metabolic processes necessary for hair growth.
Release of nitric oxide from cells leads to increased vascularisation to the scalp distributing nutrients and oxygen to the hair roots.
Excessive build-up of DHT is prevented.
What is the clinical evidence to show laser hair therapy is effective?
Physicians have varying views on whether or not low level laser therapy is effective. While some physicians reject its use entirely, others believe that low level laser therapy can provide benefit for some men and women suffering from androgenic alopecia (genetic baldness). It has also been suggested that it may assist a hair transplant patient’s postoperative wound healing process and expedite hair growth. Benefits of laser therapy for hair loss
Low level laser thereapy can be used in both men and women
No adverse effects have been reported
It is clean and painless
Low level laser hair therapy is relatively inexpensive
It requires minimal time commitment
Some low level laser therapy devices are portable
Hair growth may occur on the top of the head/crown and along the hairline of forehead
Improvement is reported in at least some users after 12 to 26 weeks of use, with reduced hair fall and noticeable hair growth.
How is low level laser hair therapy administered ?
Two to three times weekly treatments are typically recommended, and consist of a 8 to 15-minute exposure of the scalp to light-emitting diodes under a head cap. Scalp treatment and massages that promote blood circulation may be used additionally as part of the program. Proprietors of low level laser therapy services speak about the importance of regularity, which includes frequent appointments (twice a week, more or less) over a long duration (typically one year).
