Dr. Dy and Dy Dermatology Center are excited to introduce a new hair growth technology with proven efficacy – The CAPILLUS.

With over 80 million American men and women experiencing pattern baldness and hair loss, there’s never been a better time for prevention and restoring natural growth. Dr. Lady Dy of Dy Dermatology Center in Glenview, Illinois, is an expert in diagnosing and treating hair loss. Her services have benefited her patients through fuller heads of hair and improved self-image. Dr. Dy understands that hair loss not only affects our physical appearance, but carries emotional implications as well. Therefore, Dr. Dy always seeks out the best and most advanced technologies and treatment options for restoring hair.

Meet Capillus

This is an FDA approved Laser Light Hair Therapy (LLHT) that has been clinically tested to regrow hair. There are many devices that use Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) in the market, but only a few that have been studied and proven to regrow hair. The one we have chosen to provide is called CapillusRxTM and CapillusOfficePROTM. It’s the best in the market because it uses laser light over LED lights, has the most number of diode lights (over 300 laser bulbs), and delivers the appropriate power density and irradiation time to the scalp. This optimal balance of the key laser light properties makes it one of the most effective low level laser treatments available. The laser device is safe, non-invasive, completely painless, and has been used medically since the 1960’s. It targets dormant follicles to stop the progression of hair loss while encouraging regrowth. In independent clinical trials, Capillus was shown to be effective in over 95% of the study patients, resulting in an increase in hair count by an average of 51 percent over a 17-week period.

The Capillus laser light device is available as a flexible cap that can be used in your home at your convenience or obtained as a scalp treatment at Dy Dermatology Center. The Capillus has a soft silicon lining that comfortably fits everyone. The medical-grade home use device is referred to as CapillusRx™ while the in-office device is referred to as CapillusOfficePROTM .

Laser Light Therapy for Hair Regrowth

The precise mechanism of action on how laser light therapy works for hair regrowth is not well understood. But strong evidence suggests that Laser light therapy revitalizes hair follicles by the following mechanisms:

  • It increases cell metabolism for greater protein production to increase hair shaft diameter
  • It increases blood flow to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the hair bulb
  • It decreases inflammation around the follicles
  • It stimulates the sebaceous glands for silkier-looking hair
  • It Increases melanin production in the hair follicles, darkening gray hair

Easy Treatments, In-Office or Even At Home

Dy Dermatology Center now offers CapillusOfficePROTM , an in-office, low level hair laser treatment to any patients who want healthy hair. This treatment can be used to treat active hair loss or to prevent hair loss. The in-office treatment only requires twice-weekly visits of about 24 minutes for each session.

You may also purchase your own home use CapillusRx™ device which requires only a 6-minute daily treatment. It is a baseball cap with a portable battery pack that you can conveniently and discreetly wear around the house while you proceed with your daily routine.
