Red Light Therapy: Everything You Need To Know

Ok, let’s be honest...most of us want a full, thick head of hair, right? Fellas, can you confidently claim that you can pull off a bald head like, let’s say, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson or Bruce Willis? And ladies, I don’t think I’m alone in that I don’t have the facial features to pull off a shaved Demi Moore look a la G.I. Jane.

While some of us can and choose to rock the shortcut, I think it’s safe to say that most of us want to hold on to our thick locks as long as possible. And when we start to feel unconfident or concerned with hair loss, we start looking for options.

Some of us have been here before. I mean, our precious locks are part of who we are! So, we start to research and go down a rabbit hole of products, solutions, and procedures to help revive our manes.

At iRESTORE, our red light therapy hair growth devices promote thicker, fuller hair...all from the comfort of your home! I know I know, you’re wondering what red light therapy is and if red light therapy for hair loss could be a good option for you. Well, let’s get right to it!

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy is a treatment that helps your skin and muscle tissue heal by subjecting you to low levels of red light. It works by exposing your hair follicles to red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) which assist with promoting regrowth.

Now, for those of us who aren’t scientists, let’s break it down. The part of your cells that generate power (mitochondria) soak up the red light, which can lead to healthier cells and the restoration of skin and muscle tissue. The light creates heat below the skin’s surface, increasing the cells’ activity and leading to faster growth. Hairy cool, right?!

And we’re not talking about those damaging UV rays like when you’re baking in a tanning booth. Red light therapy for hair growth uses very low levels of heat that are not painful or harmful and provides wavelengths that are actually helpful to the skin.

With that said, don’t expect to feel much with red light therapy. Once the light warms up, you will feel some heat on your skin, but most people actually enjoy the treatment and find it quite relaxing!

The red light does not feel hot to touch, however, it creates friction and heat below the skin’s surface. By energizing the cells this way, it increases their activity leading them to reproduce faster, making red laser therapy for hair growth one of the best options on the market.

With red light therapy, each time a skin cell splits from the energy of the red light, it makes a duplicate of itself. Think of it like cloning! Then, as new cells emerge, they replace the old, damaged cells.

The treatments require no downtime but, just like with anything in life, you need to use red light therapy for hair growth on a steady basis to see results. You know what they say.... consistency is key!



How does it Help?

Red light therapy (or red laser therapy) has proven to be effective for many purposes like dementia, dental pain, tendinitis, and even skin wrinkles. But we know why you’re here...for red light therapy for hair growth!

Red light therapy provides a safe and non-invasive way to promote thicker, fuller hair. And studies have shown that men and women with certain hair loss disorders who used a red light helmet grew thicker hair.

A 26-week trial showed that patients with androgenic alopecia who received red laser for hair growth saw a significantly bigger increase in hair density compared to the subjects who used a placebo device. The subjects who used red laser therapy treatment also saw a substantial improvement in overall hair regrowth, along with thicker, shinier, and more manageable hair compared to those who did not.

Another study from 2020 measured data from 10 controlled trials and found red laser therapy for hair growth to be effective for treating the most common type of alopecia in both men and women. All of the people who received treatment saw a significant increase in hair diameter and/or density.

Now, this treatment may not work for everyone. Red light therapy for hair loss is best for people in earlier stages of hair loss. It won’t cure baldness, but it will help prevent further damage if addressed early enough. So, if you’re starting to feel your hair thinning out, or noticing some unwanted changes, get to the issue ASAP!

The ultimate result of red light therapy for hair loss is to create healthier cells, but it has also proven to increase your blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients to your skin’s surface.

Red light therapy penetrates the top layer of skin into the lower levels of skin (the dermis). Again, for our non-scientists, the dermis is where our collagen, elastin, and other important proteins live. Through red light therapy, red light photons are absorbed by our cells and converted to energy. This same energy can then quicken the production of collagen and elastin, creating more energy for your cells.

All of this leads to an increase of oxygen to your skin, an improvement of circulation, and the repairment of damaged tissue.
