What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is a non-invasive method of hair restoration that uses a low-level laser to stimulate hair growth. This treatment is a great way for patients with thinning hair and pattern baldness to correct their hair loss and stimulate the growth of new hair. This procedure can also be used to boost the effectiveness of more severe hair restoration treatments.
How Does it Work?
During treatment, red light is concentrated for a short amount of time at areas of the hair that are thinning or balding. This light passes through the uppermost layers of the skin and is absorbed by an enzyme within the hair follicles called cytochrome c. Once this enzyme absorbs the red light, it begins to send signals to the hair follicle that stimulate the biological processes necessary for hair growth. Over time, these signals repair the hair follicle and help it create new healthy and full hair.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Each treatment area takes less than a minute to complete — the total length of a red light therapy session can vary depending on how many areas each patient needs to be treated. Following treatment, patients experience absolutely no downtime or discomfort. Because the process of healing within the hair follicles can take time, patients should allow two or three months to pass before they expect to see significant changes.
Am I a Candidate for Red Light Therapy for Hair Restoration?
While red light therapy for hair restoration is safe enough to be used on nearly anyone, this treatment is typically most beneficial for patients that are experiencing mild to moderate amounts of hair loss. This includes people who have begun to lose hair due to stress, medical side effects, surgery, or other conditions.
