Prepares the scalp before the transplant
Up to a month or so before a scheduled transplant, using photons to strengthen the mitochondrial activity on the scalp is beneficial. Most people who undergo hair transplants suffer from androgenetic alopecia, in which DHT has been causing havoc on each of the hair follicles and compromising them by miniaturizing the hair follicles, making the sebum production unstable, and increasing the epidermal growth factor (i.e. new skin). These negative attributes to the hair follicles are caused by reduced chemical pathways to each of the hair follicles.
Applying photons prior to transplants strengthens the mitochondrial activity. It also assures that any potentially damaged hair follicles during the implantation and extraction process will survive the transplantation.
Immediate relief of inflammation after transplantation
It is recommended that up to 24 to 48 hours after a transplant, the Theradome helmet be used to reduce inflammation from the procedure. Red lasers are used for inflammatory conditions for pain and wound management, as this is no different. Using the Theradome will assure better healing and a greater chance of hair surviving after a transplant.
