Laser Hair Cap Myths


1.) Red Light Therapy Side Effects are Harmful to the Brain:

lllt is not harmful to the brain

Low level red light therapy (LLLT) is proven to be safe and effective for human use. For your assurance, Kiierr laser caps are FDA-cleared for safety and effectiveness in both men and women. This light therapy has been proven to achieve positive improvement with depression, Alzheimer’s and more. According to Dr. Greg Hipskind, founder of Functional Brain Imaging, Inc., “light therapy improves cognitive brain function and cerebral blood flow after traumatic brain injury.” Therefore, the irony of this myth is this treatment is actually used on brain injuries to improve symptoms. 


2.) Laser Caps ONLY Work for Men:

6 myths of laser hair caps

One of the most common myths about laser caps is that they are only successfully used by men treating male pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss. This is far from the truth. Laser caps are designed to be used by BOTH men and women looking to improve the health, strength, and thickness of their hair. In fact, some of the best hair growth results we have seen stem from women using the cap to improve their postpartum hair loss after pregnancy.


3.) Laser Caps are Unaffordable:

Laser caps can be very affordable especially when compared to expensive clinical treatments costing thousands of dollars. Kiierr laser caps for hair growth are some of the most affordable hair growth devices available for at home use. Kiierr has also partnered with Affirm, providing monthly payment options for customers not wanting to pay in full. You will have the choice to submit payments on your laser cap over 3, 6, or 12 months.


4.) Laser Caps Must be Prescribed or Purchased From a Doctor:

laser caps do not have to be prescribed by doctor

Laser hair growth caps were once only available through expensive procedures completed by physicians in clinics. However these days,  this therapy can be completed on your own time, in the comfort of your own home. Although you can get approval from your doctor, it is not required. Anyone looking to improve the health of their hair can purchase a laser cap.


5.) Laser Caps are Painful or Cumbersome to Use:

Kiierr’s laser cap is designed for comfortable and hands-free use. The device is completely portable, allowing you to finish your treatment sitting on the couch relaxing, moving around doing household chores, driving, etc. Customers may experience a warm sensation on the scalp towards the end of treatment due to increased blood flow and circulation to the scalp. However, no pain should be felt throughout the treatment therapy.


6.) Laser caps only work for people who are balding:

These devices are not directed for hair thinning customers only. Although the most dramatic before/after results photos may be seen from these candidates, you don’t have to be severely balding to benefit from a laser cap. LLLT is a proven technology that strengthens as well as regenerates hair follicles on the scalp. Laser caps are a great option for those who want to be proactive and catch thinning hair before it increases. Many Kiierr customers use our Laser caps to keep a thick head of hair and avoid thinning/balding altogether.
