Red Light Therapy: Could This Be A Way Out Of Your Hair Loss Issues?

Red Light Therapy: Could This Be A Way Out Of Your Hair Loss Issues?

Posted on: 2020-11-09 || Posted by: Nina Ross

While medications are a common go-to for hair loss, there are many options available in today’s hair loss treatment landscape. One of such approaches is the Red Light therapy.

What Is Red Light Therapy?

It’s completely normal to shed about 100 strands daily. For most people, this hair loss is temporary and grows back. 

For others, it’s a different ballgame and due to genetics, age, medical conditions/treatments, or hormonal imbalances, the hair might not regrow.

As such, people who experience hair loss are left to find a treatment solution that best meets their individual needs.

Red light therapy for hair loss [also known as low laser therapy] is a safe and non-invasive technique that uses low heat on your scalp tissue. 

The photons get absorbed by weak cells to encourage healthy hair growth. This form of laser therapy boosts blood circulation and awakens dormant hair follicles for hair production.

Who Is Red Light Therapy For?

Although your results may vary, men and women can benefit from red light therapy for hair loss. 

According to a study, low-level laser therapy stimulates hair follicles to produce positive results in women who experience hair loss due to chemotherapy-induced alopecia and alopecia areata.

Another research study proves that red light therapy is promising if you’re suffering from androgenetic alopecia as it boosts hair regrowth and thickness.

The Benefits of Using Red Light Therapy for Hair Loss

We have already highlighted hair regrowth and thickness as two outstanding benefits of red light therapy. 

Other benefits associated with using red light therapy include:

  • Collagen production
  • Formation of new vessels
  • Healing for wounds
  • A reduction in cell inflammation 

But, Are There Any Side Effects?

Red light therapy is relatively safe as there are very few side effects. These could be:

  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability

Too much light damages your scalp and too little light won’t have the therapeutic effect you want.

You want to ensure that you work with a professional who is experienced with red light therapy as it reduces your risk of side effects or injury.

When Can You Expect To See Results From Red Light Therapy Treatments?

Results will vary from person to person. However, there’s a small chance that you’ll see some results after the first session. 

This treatment generally requires an upward of 10 sessions to see desirable results.

Final Thoughts

Red light therapy for hair loss is useful for stimulating follicles to produce healthy, thick hair. 

It’s an excellent way to promote healing and help reduce inflammation that causes hair loss.
