New FDA Clinical Trial for Female Hair Loss Sufferers

Lasercap hair loss Women suffering from hair loss or hair thinning have a rare opportunity to participate in an FDA clinical trial under the direct supervision of Alan J. Bauman, M.D., one of the nation’s leading hair restoration physicians.

Dr. Bauman is conducting this clinical trial on behalf of LaserCap and is seeking women between the ages of 40 and 60, who may be noticing thinner, wispier hair, a smaller ponytail volume, decreasing scalp coverage, a wider part-line or excessive shedding hair in their brush or sink.

Men are also invited to participate.




Invented by Dr. Michael Rabin of Transdermal Cap, Inc., LaserCap provides low level laser therapy to the scalp in a powerful, portable, rechargeable, discreet hands-free device that fits completely under a standard baseball hat. Low level laser therapy has been used in the United States for more than 20 years in the treatment of hair loss with numerous devices achieving FDA clearance for hair growth in recent years.

Transdermal Cap, Inc. has engaged the services of the Bauman Medical Consulting Division to perform this double blind, randomized, IRB-reviewed and approved research trial on behalf of the company.

The LaserCap trial will be performed with IRB-approved protocols in the pursuit of an FDA 510(k) clearance for the safe and effective use of LaserCap for the treatment of female androgenetic alopecia, hereditary hair loss.

The Bauman Medical Consulting Division conducts clinical trials for some of the world’s largest companies, including most recently Procter & Gamble, regarding their new over-the-counter cosmetic “hair thickening treatment.” That research study resulted in the worldwide launch in 2013 of a P&G product under Pantene’s Expert Collection line (also known as Clinicare in Asia), called “AgeDefy Hair Thickening Treatment” that is presently available in retail stores nationwide.

Dr. Bauman was designated a Chief Medical Spokesperson for P&G when launching the Pantene “AgeDefy Daily Hair Thickening Treatment” product globally and presented his research in launch events in Beijing, São Paulo, Edinburgh, Boca Raton, New York, and others.

Dr. Bauman has also served on the prestigious international Pantene-ProV Hair Research Institute. Click here for more info about the Bauman Medical Group Consulting Division; click here to learn more about Pantene Expert Collection “AgeDefy” Hair Thickening Treatment.

LaserCap Eligibility:

Eligible candidates will receive a LaserCap* which is up to three times more powerful than a commercial-grade in office unit and up to 40 times more powerful than other consumer lasers.

The LaserCap is embedded with more than 220 light emitting diodes that bathe the entire scalp in light, potentially stimulating hair growth and preserving hair follicles through a process called photobiomodulation, increasing blood flow and cellular energy production encouraging hair follicles to produce thicker, shinier, fuller looking hair.

The trial requires two office visits, once to receive the LaserCap and the second time 16 weeks later at the conclusion of the trial. At the end of the trial, all participants will receive a brand new LaserCap (a $2,999 value) at no cost.

Women, or men, interested in participating in the LaserCap clinical trial can find more information at or call, 844-Get-Hair.

(*note: during the trial some participants may receive a non-working, “placebo” device)
