The Science Behind the Theradome LH80 PRO

In 1965, a Hungarian physician named Dr. Endre Mester accidentally discovered that shining low-level laser light on shaven mice grew their fur back quicker. Little did he know that his unintended findings would one day become the core of a worldwide laser hair therapy phenomenon.

Yes, it was due to a failed experiment and a confused lab assistant that Dr. Mester paved the foundation for the best hair growth treatment out on the market today– the Theradome LH80 PRO laser helmet. Unlike other hair loss treatment medication, which can have harmful side effects, laser hair therapy is a perfectly natural solution to hair loss.

The Theradome LH80 PRO is the first OTC (Over-the-Counter) FDA-cleared device of its kind. Not only is it the most powerful, but it has been clinically proven to restore hair safely, effectively, and all in the privacy of your home. How, you ask? How do we go from shining laser light on shaven mice to growing back human hair?

Developed by a brilliant, former NASA scientist and biomedical engineer, the Theradome laser helmet relies solely on science and cutting edge technology to regrow hair. There are four crucial scientific principles involved in our optimal laser hair therapy helmet, which together encourage a decrease of shedding, an increase of hair shaft diameter, and plenty of new hair growth.

When a hair follicle dies, its connection to nutrient-carrying blood vessels is essentially cut off. Causes of death vary from genetics to medical reasons, but in most cases, an overproduction of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is involved when it comes to hair loss in both genders. This results in hair follicle miniaturization. No one wants “miniature hair”, so this is where powerful laser hair therapy comes into play.

Rather than minimize the production of DHT, as some medications do, the Theradome LH80 PRO opens a new pathway to nourish malnourished hair follicles in desperate need of energy. We call this pathway the “photonic pathway”, derived from the word “photon”– which was coined by the Great Albert Einstein and can be translated as “bundle of light”. To simplify things, think of a photon as an oscillating particle of light, and forget about Einstein’s crazy hairdo.

By energizing the base of hair follicles with laser light, the Theradome applies the First Law of Photochemistry to perfection. This law states that “Light must be absorbed for a photochemical reaction to occur. If light is not absorbed by the cell, it will not be stimulated.” Yes, it’s the base of a hair follicle that must absorb laser energy, which will then be converted to chemical energy under the right circumstances.


Well, all human cells are fueled by mitochondria, often called “the powerhouse of the cell”. Once laser light stimulates mitochondria, it produces energy that can then be used by a hair follicle. Simple, right?

This law, by the way, was formulated in 1818 by Chemists Theodor Grotthus and John William Draper, should this help you out during your next night out playing trivia.

So if you don’t treat hair loss at a cellular level (a.k.a.– by targeting the base of hair follicles buried 3 – 5 mm under the scalp), please do yourself a favor and throw out whatever so-called laser hair therapy unit you might be using.

Now that you’ve accepted that “it’s all about the base”, how does the Theradome ensure its powerful coherent light zips through 3 – 5 mm of obstacles buried under the scalp? We doubt this question would ever be included in your next trivia round, but actually, we’ve just answered part of the riddle.

The Theradome LH80 PRO only uses lasers, since they produce coherent light and can penetrate the scalp at the required depth. The term “coherence” implies the photons that make up a wave of energy are all traveling in synchronicity. This means that they will never lose power once they reach their destination. Other types of light sources, such as LEDs, lose most of their power output as their photons travel, simply because their light waves aren’t aligned.

So once again, if you’ve bought an LED hair growth treatment device, please do yourself a favor and get rid of it now.

Next comes the wavelength. Different wavelengths of light stimulate different parts of the body. Tanning beds, for instance, emit UV light that stimulates human skin (and no, we are not advocating the use of tanning beds). So which wavelength of light is best to use for hair growth? Throughout the years, TheradomeTM happens to have thoroughly done its homework and has narrowed this wavelength down to 678 ± 8 nm.

This specific wavelength corresponds to red light. Not convinced? Recalling that white light is composed of all visible colors, try shining a flashlight on one of your fingers. Your finger will light up with a glowing red color (just like E.T. the Extraterrestrial) because only red light manages to go through human tissue. And E.T. also happened to use his glowing finger for healing purposes before phoning home and leaving Earth. A mere coincidence...?

So we’ve got coherence, we’ve got the wavelength...what else is missing?

Hair growth treatment sessions with the Theradome only last 20 minutes. Why? Simply because that’s how long it takes for our glowing, healing, coherent laser beams to deliver an optimal energy dosage to the base of your hair follicles. Think of a proper energy dosage as you think of medication. You would never take a different dose of medication than otherwise prescribed by your physician– well, at least, we hope not.

So the exact time required to deliver an optimal dose of energy for stimulation is 20 minutes. And forget about brushing your hair with a laser comb during a 20-minute treatment window. As you impatiently comb your hair, rushing through your treatment and wishing for the nth time that your hair would poof! just grow back, you’ll be targeting different areas of your scalp for approximately 4 – 30 seconds. So no area gets treated with the correct energy dosage while using a laser comb.

For the third (and last) time, do yourself a favor if you’ve purchased one of these­ deceptive devices– get rid of it, or sell it to someone who hasn’t read this eye-opening article.

To summarize everything, the Theradome LH80 PRO uses 80 proprietary lasers that penetrate the scalp and reach the base of hair follicles. Should you forget everything else in this article, please at least remember this part. The most important concept of laser hair therapy is that coherent laser light must reach the base of hair follicles for effective stimulation. The Theradome helmet ensures this is achieved with an optimized wavelength, an optimal energy dosage and with the proper treatment time.

    I can attest to the efficacy of the Theradome helmet. I purchased one for salon use late last year and have been using it as prescribed. A couple of months ago, the stylist who cuts my hair noticed my hair has become thicker and she can see some new growth as well.
