PLEASANTON, CA - July 28, 2014 -  Theradome™, manufacturer of the first and only FDA cleared, over-the-counter hair restoration device, Theradome™ LH80 PRO laser helmet, announced today that their hair-loss treatment device is now available to consumers via a monthly payment plan. The company has partnered with Affirm, a new consumer finance service that offers the power of installment payments to consumers at the point of sale, through their Split Pay service. Using Split Pay, online shoppers can make a purchase and pay across multiple months with simple, clear financing fees at a fraction of credit card interest rates.

“Our mission at Theradome™ has always been to provide the safest and most effective hair restoration treatment that is convenient to use at an affordable price,” says Tamim Hamid, founder and CEO of Theradome. “The availability of our product on Affirm is another step toward making Theradome™ LH80 PRO more accessible and affordable to the public.”

Theradome™ LH80 PRO laser helmet, FDA cleared and launched last year, uses 80 proprietary lasers packaged into a wearable helmet that deliver Low Laser Light Therapy (LLLT). LLLT has demonstrated in many clinical trials to reduce hair loss, add volume, luster and length to hair and promote new hair growth. The device marks a major technological breakthrough in hair restoration because, unlike previously available forms of LLLT which required hefty payments and multiple visits to a clinic, consumers can conveniently use Theradome™ LH80 PRO in the comfort of their home at a fraction of the costs of in-clinic treatments.

Availability of Theradome™ LH80 PRO via Affirm has reduced consumer costs even further by reducing finance charges associated with credit card transactions. With Affirm, there are no exorbitant interest rates, convoluted terms in small type, or surprises. Instead, Affirm charges consumers fees as low as 6 percent depending on their payment history and dollar amount being financed. The finance fees are clearly built into every payment notice. 

According to an Affirm spokesperson, “We're excited to work with Theradome™. The benefits they provide are incredibly important to customers, and we hope Affirm can help anyone interested get a Theradome™ device for hair restoration treatment.”

For those opting to use Affirm services, approvals are fast and simple. Affirm uses the power of big data to make better, faster financing decisions about shoppers at the point of purchase. The only information a first-time user provides is top-of-mind facts such as his/her name, mobile phone number, email address, the last four digits of a social security number and birth date. Once approved, there is no user name or password to remember for future use.

“We’ve received many inquiries about payment plans from interested customers,” says Hamid. “The option to conveniently purchase Theradome™ over time at costs much less than those associated with a credit card will allow more people to benefit from next-generation hair restoration therapy.”

Theradome Laser Helmet Reaches Indiegogo Funding Goal In First 24 Hours


Crowdfunding Campaign Substantiates Tremendous Need for First-Ever Clinical Strength Laser Technology Developed for At-Home Treatment of Hair Loss

PLEASANTON, Calif.-- August 14, 2013-- Theradome™, a medical device company focused on bringing clinical-strength technologies to the consumer market, captured mass audiences with the launch of its Theradome Laser Helmet through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, reaching its funding goal in less than 24 hours and doubling the initial goal within five days of the campaign launch.

Theradome™ recently announced its FDA-clearance for the first clinical-strength home laser therapy device for women experiencing hair loss- a very emotional experience for females and, not surprisingly, something that most prefer to deal with in the privacy of their own home. Pledges for pre-orders of the Laser Helmet skyrocketed from women in the first 24 hours, who primarily ordered anonymously. Men, who make up more than one third of the pre-orders to date, have been inclined to be less concerned about anonymity when purchasing the hair loss and hair health product. Theradome™ is currently offering early adopters introductory pricing significantly below retail cost through the Indiegogo campaign.

“Our first day out to market proved that there is obviously a significant demand for this at-home laser treatment. Being a need-based product, it is astonishing to see the response we received through crowdfunding but the substantial number of incoming requests are being clearly reflected through this platform,” stated Theradome founder/CEO, Tamim Hamid. Seeking a solution for his own hair loss at the early age of thirty-two, Tamim, a former NASA scientist with extensive biomedical engineering experience, developed the Laser Helmet not only because he wanted a more effective way to treat hair loss and avoid the use of medications, but also because he believed it was important to make clinical-strength laser technology available for personal use in the privacy of one’s home.

Laser Light Therapy (LLT) has been an effective treatment for growing hair and improving hair health for decades. Extensive research has addressed the efficacy of LLT but, until now, true cold laser therapy was only available through costly visits to a hair restoration clinic. Theradome uses specially developed, high efficiency lasers that produce virtually no heat but still allow the maximum amount of therapeutic light to be delivered. Additionally, the Laser Helmet can be used in conjunction with other hair restoration therapies and as a post-chemotherapy hair loss treatment.

Also effective as a beauty regime for women simply wanting fuller and healthier hair, the Laser Helmet is proven to provide cleaner and more manageable hair with improved body and luster within two to three months of twice weekly, twenty-minute treatments. In addition to decreased oiliness and generating larger hair shafts, users experience a noticeable difference with substantially less hair found fallen out in the shower or on pillows. After twenty-six treatments, users have thicker and longer hair with a healthier scalp. After fifty-two treatments, the hairs on the vertex, hairline and temple area start filling in- resulting in fuller, thicker hair with continued use.

Key Theradome™ features.

  • The world’s most powerful in-home solution to treat hair loss.
  • Produces results with just two 20-minute treatments each week.
  • Utilizes 80 proprietary lasers to generate over 440 joules and treats the full scalp area.
  • Delivers the optimum wavelength of light for hair growth (678 nanometers).
  • Hands-free operation allows the user to carry out other tasks during the therapy.

Key Theradome™ clinical trial results.

  • Proven to grow hair in 98 percent of users.
  • Hair thickness, volume and density increased by 200% within six weeks.

Theradome™, Inc. Announces FDA Clearance and Launch of Clinical Strength Laser Hair Therapy Device for Home Hair Growth.

New FDA Cleared Solution for Hair Loss Targets Women with a Clinical Strength Laser Treatment To Promote Hair Growth and Thicker Hair.

August 6, 2013 (Silicon Valley, CA)--Theradome™, a medical device company focused on bringing clinical-strength technologies to the consumer market, announces the release of its LH80 laser helmet to treat hair loss. This system, recently cleared by the FDA, was designed by world leading experts in hair loss, dermatological health, and biomedical engineering. The system offers clinical strength hair growth therapy, previously found only in hair restoration clinics, in the comfort of one’s own home for a fraction of the usual cost.

  • Theradome™ is the first and only FDA Over-The-Counter cleared wearable laser treatment for use in the home.
  • Theradome™ offers clinical results without the clinical price tag.
  • Theradome™ is taking specially discounted advance orders via Indiegogo.com.

Tamim Hamid, founder and CEO of Theradome™, has personal experience with hair loss. “I had struggled with hair loss since I was thirty-two years old,” he says. “I come from a family of physicians, I tried all the latest prescription drugs, but none of them worked for me. As a NASA scientist and with my doctoral work in biomedical engineering, I knew there had to be a better solution. So I began working on a way to get rid of my medications and effectively regain my hair.”

The Theradome will initially be available on Indiegogo for a low introductory price. Theradome™ is also actively pursuing additional distribution channels to bring the device to every market across the globe.

In the United States, roughly 80 million people suffer from hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia, including approximately 40 million women. Traditionally, therapies for meaningful female hair growth have only been available in clinical settings and typically cost thousands of dollars. Less expensive, non-clinical options deliver much less therapeutic light (typically under 5 percent of a clinical option) than clinical devices and in most cases have not been cleared by the FDA. The Theradome brings clinical strength hair restoration therapy to the home at a fraction of the price, and it has been cleared for both safety and efficacy by the FDA.

Sara Wasserbauer, M.D. and head surgeon at California Hair Restoration explains some key characteristics of a home use laser hair therapy device, “My advice to patients is to look for a device that is a laser, not an LED. Patients should also look for a device that is easy to use, like one that has hands free operation and a wavelength in the 670 nm range. This might seem like a technical detail, but according to the most recent scientific studies lasers in this wavelength are the ones that have proven effectiveness.” The Theradome™ has all these essential features and more.

Key Theradome™ features.

  • The world’s most powerful in-home solution to treat hair loss.
  • Produces results with just two 20 minute treatments each week.
  • Utilizes 80 proprietary lasers to generate over 440 joules and treats the full scalp area.
  • Delivers the optimum wavelength of light for hair growth (678 nanometers).
  • Hands-free operation allows the user to carry out other tasks during the therapy.

Key Theradome™clinical trial results.

  • Proven to grow hair in 98 percent of users.
  • Hair thickness, volume and density increased by 200% within six weeks.

Ms. Ghazal Gill, Miss Millennium 2013 and an early user of the Theradome™, has experienced the full benefit of the therapy, “With my crazy beauty-pageant contestant lifestyle my hair had begun to fall out and had thinned, which wasn’t helping my career. I knew I had to do something about it and do it fast. When this opportunity came along I found it was easy to use the Theradome™, and I got astonishing results. My confidence is back, I have a full head of long hair and I don’t need extensions.”

Theradome™ is a medical device company located in Silicon Valley focused on laser-based hair restoration therapies. The Company is committed to bringing therapies previously only available in a clinical setting into the home. Theradome™ stops hair loss, thickens existing hair and grows new hair for a fraction of the price of a visit to a clinic.
