Red light therapy (or RLT) is a professional healing treatment designed to help your body heal tissue. Additionally, RLT may decrease inflammation and pain, make you look younger, and grow thicker hair. Red Light Therapy uses low levels of red or near-infrared light, which contains very little heat, does not hurt, and doesn’t expose your skin to any harmful UV rays.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
What about low-level laser therapy (or LLLT)? Low-level laser therapy used to treat hair loss and stimulate hair growth uses light in the red or near-infrared spectrums. Red light therapy is a specific type of low-level laser therapy. It’s also known as photobiomodulation (or PBM) or cold laser therapy. LLLT and RLT are commonly used interchangeably. However, red light therapy is a more precise term. So while there are a variety of words used to describe the same concept, they can all be helpful for healing, growing and thickening hair.
Safe in the hands of experts, red light therapy helps the mitochondria in your cells absorb and create more energy, which your body can then put to use healing itself. Additionally, red light therapy can be great for your skin, helping to heal all sorts of problems like burns, scars, sun damage, psoriasis, stretch marks, and acne. It’s also been studied for its potential benefits on patients suffering from dementia. Finally, RLT has even been used to grow plants in space. So what can it do for your hair, you’re wondering?
What Can Red Light Therapy Do for my Hair?
The most common form of hair loss is an unfortunate genetic condition that affects both women and men, known as androgenetic alopecia. In the U.S. alone, roughly 30 million women and 50 million men suffer from androgenetic alopecia. The good news is that this most common type of hair loss is the type that red light therapy is most effective against.
Imagine the possibilities. Your hair is tissue, like your skin. Therefore, it stands to reason that it can be healed the same way. Plus, RLT can penetrate up to 5 millimeters beneath the surface of your skin. As a result, it can target your roots as well.
Dr. Rodney Sinclair, MD, has spent over 25 years treating over 15,000 women and men suffering from hair loss. According to Sinclair, “there is peer-reviewed clinical evidence published to confirm that red light grows hair.” Additionally, LLLT is an FDA-cleared mechanism for hair growth in humans.
The Power of LEDs
Red light therapy utilizes LEDs to harness and direct safe, saturated, and natural light into your scalp. Remember, there are no harmful UV rays and no excess heat. These are painless treatments that increase the circulation in the affected areas, allowing your cells and hair follicles to get more of the oxygen that is necessary for them to grow and thrive. Red/near-infrared light increases the oxygen absorption of your hair follicles. Oxygen allows your body to produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the human building block of energy), which in turn, allows your body to make more hair.
Simply having more oxygen allows your body to perform more efficiently. Our bodies prioritize how they use our energy, without our permission. If our energy supply runs into problems, like something inhibiting our oxygen absorption, our body prioritizes which systems need it the most in order for us to stay alive. Things like basic functioning and staying awake can easily take priority over maintaining and growing hair.
Where Can I Get RLT?
Keep in mind that while you may be able to find red light devices online, if used incorrectly, you may do more harm than good. You may find an older laser that could be defective.
