Watch as Boston-area hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Robert Leonard, explains how long it takes for a laser cap to work. Dr. Leonard is a member of the Capillus Physicians Network, offering physician-guided laser therapy to patients with the CapillusPro.
I am female, Bosley recommend 14 minutes a day 5 days per week. Is this recommended by capillus too?
Sorry I ment 12 min a day
Hi - Your physician may recommend a regimen other than what Capillus recommends based on each individual patient’s history and response. Capillus does recommend 6 minutes per day or 12 minutes every other day.
If your doctor has recommended 12 minutes per day, we suggest splitting the treatments - 6 minutes in the morning, 6 minutes in the evening.
Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you
Although 6 minutes is recommended, is there any benefit to going beyond that limit?
Hi Thunders4u - We actually have a great article that explains the protocol here: https://support.capillus.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037398534-Why-can-t-I-use-Capillus-for-longer-than-6-minutes-per-day-
Let us know if that answers your question. Thank you
Thank you Alex, I had actually already read that article but I was really more interested in knowing if more than 6 minutes would help a heavy smoker better (a little caveat I forgot to mention.) I do know its more problematic for smokers to regrow hair.
