Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?
Red light therapy is a treatment designed to promote cell regeneration and strengthening. The treatment involves exposing sections of your body to low levels of red or near-infrared light. Even though our eyes are not able to see this light frequency, our bodies can feel it and benefit from it.
Since LED Red Light Therapy can trigger cellular activity to carry out healing and rejuvenation to damaged areas, it has been used to help repair skin and muscle injuries, dental issues, arthritis, and more recently also Hair Loss.
In Hair treatments, Red Light Therapy can increase local blood flow, reduce inflammation, and carry nutrients directly to your scalp follicles, promoting new hair growth.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RED LIGHT THERAPY FOR HAIR GROWTH?
Red light therapy not only helps your hair grow longer, but it also helps improve the hair texture and the folicle’s health, while making your locs thicker and stronger.
All of this being a minimally invasive procedure, completely safe and painless, with no side effects.
Additionally, by promoting blood flow and circulation to the scalp Red Light Therapy regenerates the skin in the site, making it more healthy and resilient. With that, it helps reduce and prevent any scalp inflammation that might hinder hair growth.
HOW LONG DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY TAKE TO WORK?
While results vary significantly from person to person, most patients start to notice improvements within 3 to 4 months of treatment.
For better and faster results, it’s recommended that you commit to 1-2 sessions between 10 and 20 minutes per day or at least 3 to 4 times per week for 3 to 4 months.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Red light therapy with LED Technology has not been associated with any negative side effects or pain when the devices are used accordingly. Is a non-invasive treatment that poses no risk of burning since light-energy doesn’t actually heat up the skin. And because of that, it offers no risk of thermal damage, scarring or discoloration. Red Light Therapy also requires no downtime, so you can return to normal routine straight after the treatment.
WILL RED LIGHT THERAPY CAUSE HAIR GROWTH IN UNWANTED PLACES?
Red light therapy doesn’t promote unwanted hair growth because it can’t cause hair to grow in places where it has never existed. The treatment was designed to encourage healthier hair growth and to stimulate follicles that have stopped producing hair or that have been growing very weak, thin hairs.
So rest assured that it will not lead to hair growth where no hair was previously present.
ARE THERE CASES WHERE RED LIGHT DOES NOT WORK?
Red light therapy does not work in cases where baldness has already existed for longer periods. It cannot cause hair growth in areas where there are no hair follicles to stimulate. So, Red Light therapy only works on active hair follicles and does not affect hair follicles that are already dead.
DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK FOR WOMEN?
Red light therapy has been approved by the FDA as a hair loss treatment for both men and women. It is mainly used to treat androgenetic alopecia and promote hair regrowth to any gender patients who experience male or female pattern-baldness.
