Red light therapy is a safe form of hair growth therapy that’s being used more and more to treat the genetic forms of hair loss (androgenetic alopecia or pattern balding) common in men and women over 30.
The benefits of red light: Red light between 600-700nm offers benefits for skin texture and tone, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, promoting collagen production and generally rejuvenating the appearance of skin and hair.
The benefits of near-infrared light: Near-infrared light (NIR) 700nm - 1100nm. penetrates deeper into the tissues to assist with wound healing, muscle recovery, nerve injury and joint pain

Red light boosts cellular energy production
The most well studied mechanism of action surrounding red and near infrared light therapy is increased mi energy production in the cells. mitochondria are tiny organelles that are the energy power plants of all the cells in our body. Red and near infrared light therapy helps the mitochondria create more of that energy. The specific photons found in red and near infrared light interact with a photoreceptor within our cells called cytochrome c oxidase.
This interaction stimulates the mitochondria in our cells to use oxygen more efficiently, which allows the mitochondria to produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Adenosine triphosphate is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g. muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis. Found in all forms of life, ATP is often referred to as the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer. When our cells have more energy, they simply perform better and the body follows suit!
What is Red and Near-Infrared Light Therapy?
Red and near-infrared light therapy are one of the biggest break-through discoveries in health in the last half century. Scientists have quietly accumulated thousands of studies on the power of red and near-infrared light to enhance human health for the past several decades. Red and near-infrared light are the electromagnetic spectrum, and more specifically part of the spectrum of light emitted by the sun. The photo below demonstrates the type of light that affect the function of our cells.The red and near-infrared wavelengths have amazing affects on our bodies. Most research showing, benefits of red and near-infrared light has used wavelengths in the narrow ranges of 630-680nm and 800-880nm
