Real People Helping Real People Heal Their Hair
Talking about hair loss isn’t easy. Even after all this time, a certain awkwardness or embarrassment associated with hair loss tends to linger. But talking about the possibilities of hair growth is quite exciting - and that’s the story that I’m here to recount to you now.
The reality is that hair loss is nothing to be ashamed of. On the one hand, no one chooses to begin involuntarily shedding hair. And on the other, we live in a time when legitimate treatments for hair restoration abound (more on this in a moment).
For me, hair loss has been a conscious reality from very early on. Even before experiencing the effects of hair loss for myself, I watched my father (and his father before him) go bald. Needless to say, neither of them was any version of excited about it.
I knew that, genetically, hair loss was going to be a problem for me. I tried preempting its affects by taking supplements and using special shampoos and conditioners, but experienced only limited results. By my late 20’s, my hairline had already begun to recede.
This was especially challenging for me as a man since, leading up to this point, I had learned to depend heavily on my thick, curly hair as a source of confidence - especially around women, who would often comment on it and even run their hands through it out of the blue!
When I realized that my meager attempts to forestall the onset of hair loss had proven inadequate on their own, I began to take the problem more seriously. I knew that I didn’t want to be bald and, frankly, I knew that I didn’t want to become bitter like my father.
So I began to research my options. There was definitely plenty of “quackery”, as my wife liked to call it, but very little of proven value outside of some extraordinarily expensive surgery centers. It was around this time that I discovered LLLT.
At the time, LLLT was only available through high-cost specialty laser clinics. Shortly after I began taking LLLT seriously, a close friend of mine introduced me to the idea of a “laser helmet”, which was a very rudimentary version of our Laser Cap.
I was skeptical at first but, after several weeks of putting one to regular use, I was sold on the credibility of LLLT as a hair growth treatment. I found that countless studies had already been performed to test and approve the validity of this technology.
I learned that the technology had also been proven for various other forms of noninvasive medical treatment and was especially excited to learn that it had virtually NO contraindications, which meant that I could use it in tandem with my supplement regimen.
(Speaking of that supplement regimen, many years of research had accumulated to comprise what, for me, became a very carefully curated supplement treatment regimen and LLLT was known to not only not-impede but in fact enhance its effectiveness!)
A little over a year into treatments, my hair had begun to grow back and I was ecstatic.
While there was plenty to appreciate about the laser helmet, there was also plenty to complain about: it was clunky, embarrassing to be seen in, used low-tech lasers that often had to be replaced, and so on. I decided I could do better.
SIDE NOTE (and this is a true story): I used to put a homemade laser helmet on my head during my “testing phase”. The positive and negative ends of the battery had a bad habit of touching… which caused it to catch fire!!
In the time since, technology has changed. A lot. The basic concept behind LLLT remains the same, but all of the elements that create its effect have been massively upgraded. The lasers, the cap materials and design, the batteries… all improved.
What these improvements mean for us in application is a product that is more convenient, more affordable, and more accessible overall. The illumiflow brand and the one-of- a-kind Laser Cap that you see now is the end result of much effort and experimentation.
As you already know, we even took the product one big step further this year by getting it cleared by the FDA for Over-the-Counter (OTC) use for both Men and Women (this was not an easy process, but was so very well worth the time it took).
At the end of the day, the illumiflow Laser Cap is the treatment solution that I personally use and will continue to use every other day. It is the solution I would recommend to my own son. My wife even uses it (sshhh - don’t tell her I told you, though).
The Laser Cap is just brilliant - technology at its very finest. I love it, and so will you. Of course, if you have any lingering questions, please don’t hesitate to contact my team any time. We can’t wait to serve you.
THE EASY CHOICE
Laser Clinic vs. The Laser Cap
The illumiflow Laser Cap features the exact same technology currently being used in high-tech, high-dollar laser clinics all across the US. The technology itself is a no-brainer: it’s safe, it’s painless, and it’s proven.
But the cost associated with receiving treatments at a laser clinic is prohibitive for most, which means that the question of whether to purchase a Laser Cap or go to a clinic becomes a no-brainer, too.
Taking It A Step Further
But there’s something that matters perhaps even more than cost. And that’s convenience. Tag onto that factors such as long-term dependable access… portability… discretion… and what you get is a solution that’s pretty much impossible to ignore.
The illumiflow Laser Cap has been designed with all of this in mind: truly developed from the ground up to present a solution for the every-man (and woman) that not only works, but is also affordable. It just makes sense.
P.S. - Watch Out For Frauds
As a final note here, we want to advocate and applaud smart shopping. This is more than just your hair we’re talking about here - this is your image, your self-confidence, your life. Unfortunately, there are some companies that prey on that reality.
One of the most popular ways of “cheating the system”, so to speak, is by offering a product that has not been cleared by the FDA. Many “knock-off brands” sell low-grade laser products under the FDA radar at low-ball price points.
Unfortunately, this always hurts the customer most of all. So be sure to double-check that products are officially FDA-Cleared through the FDA website. This is especially important when considering a medical device like the Laser Cap. Safety and transparency must be your #1 priority.

Be on the lookout for scam products that use red LED lights rather than actual lasers. We address this elsewhere on the site, but LEDs are just complete junk - utterly useless - when it comes to treating hair loss. The color is right, but that’s about it.
Watch out for “laser combs” and the like which limit coverage and exhaust your arms. Beware of “laser helmets” that are bulky or heavy as these can cause unnecessary neck and back strain. Give devices notorious for overheating a wide berth.
