(If you can find a better quality, more powerful, lighter weight Helmet or Cap than the BLOWFISH 1.0, I'll match the price!!)
1. WHAT IS THE BLOWFISH 1.0 LAZER HELMET?
The BLOWFISH 1.0 LAZER HELMET provides Convenient and Powerful Low Level Laser Therapy in an easy to use *Simple Helmet / Cap design.
The BLOWFISH 1.0 uses a combination of 182, 5mw and 10mw, 655nm **Dispersed laser diodes
(equivalent to 300, 5mw diodes in Power).
116 of those lasers are***10mw diodes which are used in the classical Male Pattern Thinning areas: Front, Temples, Top and Crown.
66, ****5mw diodes are used on the sides where hair usually doesn't thin.
The BLOWFISH 1.0 is light weight, weighing on average about 19 ounces (about 540 grams).
The BLOWFISH 1.0 is BATTERY POWERED using a rechargeable Battery pack for convenience.
The BLOWFISH 1.0 has NO EXCESS WIRES.
It is made with light weight aluminum, which is a great heat sink so it NEVER GETS HOT.
Total Power is roughly 1192mw.
Power in Joules is 715 Joules for a 10 minute treatment and 1073 Joules for a 15 minute treatment.
*I've done my best to make an original design, not copying the Official Laser Cap made by Transdermal LLC, so as not to infringe on their patent pending design. The BLOWFISH is not as symmterical as the Official Laser Cap, therefore it may sit a little unsteady on the head. It's a little heavier than the Official Laser Cap. And it doesn't fit under a baseball Cap.
The BLOWFISH does however use Better Quality Laser Diodes than the Official Laser Cap does. The BLOWFISH also uses both 5 and 10mw diodes giving more stimulation to the scalp than the Official Laser Cap does. The BLOWFISH outputs laser energy more closely to the specs than the Official Laser Cap does. It doesn't have a HUGE mark up like the Official Laser Cap. And it doesn't need a doctor's prescription because the BLOWFISH is classified as a Cosmetic device.
**Dispersed means that the laser module has no focusing apparatus so the laser light instantly disperses (spreads out) on exiting the diode aperture. This makes the coverage much better and the lasers much safer if you, by accident, happen to glance directly into the beam.
*** The average 10mw laser diode outputs about 7 to 9mw.
**** The average 5mw laser diode outputs about 3.5 to 4.5mw.
2. HOW EFFECTIVE IS LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS?
LLLT* is a Moderately Effective Treatment for Male Pattern Hair loss. Expect to see a REDUCTION IN HAIR FALLOUT, and THICKENING OF EXISTING HAIR.
*LLLT is best for slowing hair loss and thickening up existing hair than it is for regrowing lost hair. Also, men with male pattern baldness must supplement LLLT with a DHT Blocking agent such as Finisteride or Dutasteride for long term success.
3. WHAT CAUSES MALE PATTERN HAIR LOSS?
DHT (Dihydrotestosterone, a byproduct of testosterone and the enzyme 5~Alpha~ Reductase) in and around the hair follicles causes inflammation, which in turn damages the follicles’ ability to keep producing healthy hair. If this DHT induced inflammation is left unchecked, DHT susceptible follicles become more and more inflamed / damaged, thus producing weaker and finer hairs until, in the final stages of hair loss, the follicles have been damaged so much, that they can no longer produce hair.
All this happens at the cellular level of course. All the balding person really notices, is that his/her hair is thinning, and also maybe the scalp is itchy or overly greasy or basically not like it was when they had a full head of hair.
NOTE: Whether DHT is the only culprit causing hair loss is not really known. Other factors also may be at work here.
4. HOW DOES LLLT WORK WITH REGARDS TO HAIR LOSS?
LLLT works by helping to repair the damage caused by DHT through a process known as Bio~Photo~Stimulation. Light Photons penetrate the effected tissue and cells causing a Photo~chemical reaction. In effect, the photons are re~energizing the tissues and cells causing them to heal themselves thus reducing /reversing the negative effects of inflammation in and around the hair follicles.
5. AREN’T LASERS USED FOR CUTTING, BURNING, HAIR REMOVAL, ETC…?
Yes, certain types of lasers are used for those purposes. But Low Level Lasers fall into a completely different category.
LLLT lasers are known as Cold Lasers because they produce no heat. This is what differentiates them from lasers that are used for cutting, burning, hair removal, etc. Typically LLLT uses lasers in the range of 1mw up to 500mw per beam. They are either used in continuous~wave mode or pulsed mode. For hair loss, lasers in the red spectrum, wavelength of 635 to 660nm are used. There is debate as to what exact wavelength produces the best results. The majority consensus is 650 to 660nm produce a little better results than do the lower wavelengths. But whichever wavelength is better, it wouldn’t be significantly better.
6. DOES LLLT HAVE ANY NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS?
LLLT has no negative side effects.
7. PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING THE BLOWFISH 1.0
1. DON'T stare directly into the laser beam.
2. DON'T shine it into another person’s eyes.
3. NEVER attempt to repair the BLOWFISH 1.0 yourself.
Doing so VOIDS THE WARRANTY.
4. NEVER open up the BLOWFISH 1.0.
Doing so VOIDS THE WARRANTY.
There are NO USER SERVICABLE parts inside.
5. KEEP the BLOWFISH 1.0 stored when not in use and
out of the reach of children.
8. CAN LLLT BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS TO IMPROVE EFFECTIVENESS?
Yes, it can. There are several other treatments for thinning hair that can be used in men such as Finisteride, Dutasteride, and/or Minoxidil. Using them in combination with LLLT may enhance results. These drugs do have some negative side effects so talk to your doctor before starting them.
9. DOES LLLT CAUSE ANY INITIAL SHEDDING DURING THE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF TREATMENT SIMILAR TO OTHER EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS?
Possibly, yes. Products like Minoxidil, Finisteride, and Dutasteride have been known to cause a small initial shed in some people. LLLT may also have this effect during the first few weeks. This is nothing to be alarmed about. The shedded Telogen hairs (those in the resting phase) are being shed to make way for stronger healthier hair to replace them. It is important to note that men with MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) have more hairs in the resting phase than men who don't have MPB. Actually, shedding is a good sign that the treatment being used is actually having some benefit.
10. WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS USING LLLT?
For those who respond to LLLT treatment, you should start seeing a cessation of hair fallout about 8 to 10 weeks after starting treatment.
At about 12 weeks you should notice that your hair is looking and feeling a little thicker and fuller.
At 16 to 24weeks, you may notice more thickening of your hair.
From 24weeks and onward you should be able to see a noticeable difference compared to when you first started treatment. Again, please note that LLLT is best at slowing / stopping hair fallout, thickening existing hair than it is at growing hair back. That is why it is ESSENTIAL to start LLLT as soon as you notice you are losing hair.
11. WHAT IF THE BLOWFISH 1.0 NEEDS REPAIR?
ALL REPAIRS need to be done by me. Under warranty, repairs are free of charge. You just pay shipping to get it to me, I pay it back. Out of warranty and I usually fix small problems for free and something such as a faulty laser or switch at cost (meaning the cost that I pay to buy the parts).
Please kindly note that the warranty is automatically void if the customer opens or attempts repairs on their own.
12. CAN I EMAIL YOU WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS I MAY HAVE?
YES! You can email me anytime and I can guarantee to reply within 24hours. And remember, when you email me, you are talking to the actual person who manufactured your BLOWFISH 1.0 LAZER HELMET and not some sales person or Chat bot who in most cases has no idea what they are talking about. Remember, any questions about the BLOWFISH 1.0 can best be answered by the person who designed it and assembled it, and that is me.
Please feel free to browse the website. If you have any questions on LLLT or hair loss in general, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks for your kind attention.
In a nut shell, Men who are NORWOOD 2 through NORWOOD 5 are candidates for LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY.
In general, the further you are down the Norwood Scale, the less likely you are to see Positive results from using LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY as a stand alone treatment.
NOTE: MPB IS RELENTLESS. I would advise all men to use LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY in combination with other FDA proven treatments.
NOTE: The BLOWFISH 1.0 LAZER HELMET is NOT a Medical Device and should not be construed as such.
It is a Cosmetic Device for Cosmetic Purposes Only.
The BLOWFISH 1.0 LAZER HELMET is a Class 3A Laser Product.
