You might be surprised to learn nearly half of Americans who deal with hair loss are women. There are not many treatment options for the 40%. Minoxidil, more commonly known as Rogaine, is the only FDA-approved medication for female pattern baldness. However, a common accessory is offering women more choices when it comes to re-growing their hair.

Pharmacist Seema Patel's hair loss made her feel embarrassed around her customers. “No matter what you do, put on makeup, dress up, do whatever you want, but your hair doesn't look right."

Nine months ago, Dr. Vineeta Keswani introduced her to Lasercap LCPRO. It's a battery-operated baseball cap with a special disc inside the dome. Just flip the switch and more than 200 pulsed lights hit the scalp and stimulate hair growth. "It's basically low level laser light, which goes through the scalp and acts on the cells and stimulates the energy factory of the cell so it produces an energy-rich, oxygen-rich environment for the hair follicle,” explains Dr. Keswani who recommends wearing the cap three times a week for 15 minutes. The device has been on the market for six years but was recently FDA-approved to promote hair growth.

Patients can take the cap home instead of visiting their physician's office several times a week for laser therapy. Patel wears it on her drive to work. She combines the treatment with vitamins and other scalp therapies. The 43-year-old says nearly half of her hair has grown back. “People are like 'wow, you look really good today.' So it feels good."
