Capillus® Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

Capillus® is a non-surgical, FDA cleared, hair restoration option for men and women who suffer from thinning, shedding, or balding hair. Capillus® is designed to reawaken dormant hair follicles and spur newer, fuller hair growth with comprehensive LLLT exposure to the entire scalp. Over the years, studies have shown the effectiveness of laser light therapy for hair regrowth. Low-Level Light Therapy has been demonstrated to increase cell metabolism and the health of blood vessels in the scalp for thicker, more supple, and more durable hair shafts. It has also been shown to stimulate the sebaceous glands for silkier-looking hair. Capillus® has 272 low-level laser diodes and compact under-the-cap construction. The laser cap can be used alongside other methods used by a hair restoration professional, including topical solutions, prescription medication, and even hair restoration surgery.

Low –level light therapy has never been more convenient

Low-level light therapy works under a cap while you go about your everyday activities. The cap is powered by a mobile battery pack so it can be worn around the home, running errands, or even while working. Capillus® is recommended for 30 minutes every other day. It is a very user-friendly device that is simple to use. You can wear it during your daily routine anytime, anywhere – home or office.

Your Evaluation

At your consultation, Andrew J. Kaufman, M.D., evaluates the quantity of lost hair and assesses the condition of your hair, skin, and scalp. Factors including age, degree of hair loss, type of hair (color and texture), and available donor hair allow Dr. Kaufman to determine if underlying environmental causes or other reasons are impacting hair loss or breakage. For many patients, also taken into account are expectations – and how well a particular option fits in with your lifestyle. Capillus® fits many lifestyles and may be a good option to decrease hair loss and stimulate hair growth. To learn more about Capillus®, contact us, or please call our office today at 805 497-1694.

Dr. Kaufman was outstanding! So professional and reassuring. The nurses were so kind! I had BCC removed through Mohs surgery. I have seen doctors around the world and this was the best medical experience I have ever had. READ MORE



Dr. Kaufman and his crew were awesome. I felt comfortable during surgery, and the nurses were amazing. Dr. Kaufman is intelligent, highly skilled, attentive to details, and his dry sense of humor is funny. READ MORE
