An Introduction to the Theradome LH80 Laser Helmet

We all have our insecurities, we are only human after all. There is always going to be something that we aren't happy with, be it our weight or even our shoe size. Some things are just completely out of our control and we just have to accept them as being part of who we are. A quirk, a blemish, a flaw in the make up that makes you, you and me, me. If we were all perfect, the world would be a very boring place to be don't you think?

You will have virtually met my other half Luke over the years, as he has popped up here and there on this here blog. This blog post is actually all about him. Luke has given me the go ahead to talk to you today about his personal insecurity. It is something that he has tried to brush under the carpet for years, but truth be told it's something that he is actually quite self conscious about, and that is his thinning hair.

If I was to cast my mind back, I personally cannot put my finger on when Luke's hair started to thin. In fact it wasn't something that I noticed, it was only when Luke presented a older photo alongside a more recent one that I really saw the difference. Of course Luke was very aware as to what was happening, especially when he noticed that his hair would come out in clumps as he washed it, or even ran his fingers through it. It was a sore subject for Luke, but it just seemed to be something that was going to happen regardless, and there didn't seem to be anything he could do aside from getting on with it and trying to accept that it was just part and parcel of getting older.

You could say that Leo and I have subsequently helped Daddy pull his hair out over the years (Some may say literally!). We don't really know what has caused Luke's hair to thin and fall out over recent years, stress? Age? Something else? Having seen Luke going through this though, having seen him looking into the cost of hair transplants, I did wonder if there was anything at all that could be done to help him. If he was over weight he would be able to diet and lose a few lbs, if he had a cough he could get some medicine, so there must be something to help him?

A few weeks back I had a very interesting email land in my inbox, and as I read through it I became a little excited. There was an opportunity that would just be PERFECT for Luke. Theradome the makers of the LH80 Laser Helmet that specialises in the promotion of hair growth and reduction of hair loss were looking for testers. The device is suitable for both men and women and can be used in the comfort of your very own home, and each treatment cycle consists of only 20 minutes per sitting.

I sent in some shots of Luke's hair to demonstrate it's current condition and awaited to hear whether he would be a suitable candidate. When it was confirmed that Luke would be the perfect candidate I was so pleased, as it meant that I could actually help him, or at least try to. Having seen some of the results from reviews online, I feel optimistic that he will see results using the Theradome Helmet over time. 

Luke began using the helmet on the 7th April 2015, and for the first month he will be using it every other day. He has had around 5 or 6 treatments at this point, and we both know that we won't see any difference straight away. It is going to be a ongoing process that takes time, and over the next year we will be sharing with you his treatment and the progress that he makes. I have taken a number of photos and even video footage so that we can keep a real eye on any developments. 

The helmet is light to hold and comes equipped with velcro pads that can be popped inside to make it comfier to wear. Luke has been wearing the helmet in a evening when we sit down to watch some TV. It's the perfect time to do it as he can quite happily just sit down, relax and treat his hair at the same time without having to lift a finger.

Theradome is the only wearable clinical-strength laser treatment people can use at home, the treatment takes place over a course of 20 minutes where the helmet fires cool lasers at the scalp. The lasers target follicles and stimulate hair growth and development which is exactly what we are hoping it will do for Luke. As you can see from the photos he does have some apparent thinning, but if our expectations are confirmed, he may be able to benefit favorably from the Theradome Helmet. I expect it will be around 6 months before any real visual change is detected, but we have made a start.

It works by increasing the blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles in order to allow cellular repair, and stimulating the microcirculation for improving cellular metabolism and protein synthesis. It reduces the protein blocking enzymes so that it can promote hair thickness and density.

Hair loss can have a huge impact on a person's confidence, bigger than you would think. Luke really has looked into so many different avenues when it comes to this particular issue, but it is also something that he tries to shrug off, and to the rest of the world he will come across as though it doesn't bother him. Behind closed doors this is a different story, so I am really looking forward to pushing forward with the Theradome Helmet. For Luke to halt his hair loss, and help re-build hair growth, it would be like all of his Christmases had come at once, and I know that it would do wonders for his confidence.

I will be giving an update as to how Luke is getting on in August, but in the mean time you can keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter where we will be sharing further content.
