Red light therapy or Info Red, also known as cold laser, soft laser, and Low-Level Laser Therapy, is a safe form of light treatment 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.

How is the action process of Info Red Therapy?

Growth (Anagen Phase)

Resting (Catagen Phase)

Shedding (Telogen Effluvium Phase)

Red light therapy has been found to increase blood flow (microcirculation) in the scalp and stimulate metabolism in catagen or telogen effluvium follicles.

The result is an accelerated production of anagen hair – new hair (stimulation of epidermal stem cells in the hair follicle bulge and shifting the follicles into anagen phase).


Both red light therapy and near infrared light therapy have been known to stop hair loss and promote regrowth of fuller thicker hair. Sometimes light therapies are called by other names such as laser soft laser low-level light therapy, photo bio-modulation (or PBM for short).

Whatever they are called, red light therapy is a safe light-based treatment becoming popular as a method to stop hair loss, including genetic forms, which are a very common problem for men and women over age 35.

Red light therapy for hair loss typically uses LED lights, which emit a red light in a specific range of wavelengths (630-670 nm), that have been established effective at causing hair to grow.

For men, the most common balding pattern involves a receding hairline and hair loss at the crown of the head, while for women hair loss more often involves diffuse thinning of the hair all over the head. Either way, red light therapy can help.


What benefits does Info Red therapy has?

  • Low-level light therapy (LLLT) using red or near infrared light is scientifically proven to treat genetic forms of hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).
  • Red light therapy has been shown to cause hair to regrow the crown area and along the hairline, the most common places that men tend to lose their hair.
  • Neither red nor infrared light therapy is known to have serious side effects. The treatment is painless, safe and easy to get access too.
  • In most cases hair regrowth has been seen after 12 to 26 weeks using red light therapy, including loss of less hair each day and a noticeable improvement for hairs growing on the head.

If the Red Light Therapy (Info Red Laser) is combined with the application of Platelet Rich Plasma or Capillary Mesotherapy, results can be obtained in just a few weeks.

Are there any side effects of Info Red therapy?

Everyone is different, and although there are no studies or any reports of negative side effects or pain, it’s always possible an individual could experience problems that no one else does. Therefore, when beginning with any type of light therapy the patient should look for the advice of a specialist. 

Will Info Red Thera`y cause hair to grow in other unwanted places?

Red light therapy can stimulate hair growth but it cannot grow hair in places where it has never existed. It can improve the quality of the hair that grows by increasing the blood supply to the area, making sure that the growing hair is getting the nutrients it needs to be healthy.

Red light therapy has many other benefits including increasing the production of collagen as an anti-aging defense.

Will Info Red Therapy work for all types or causes of hair loss?

Depending on the cause of hair loss, the mode of treatment will vary as well. No known therapy will work for all forms of hair loss, as there is no one-size fits all treatment for it. For example, if you are having hair loss because of a certain medication, you will not stop losing your hair unless you stop using that specific medication. Moreover, the earlier treatment is started, the better the chances of success through its use. There isn’t much that can be done to resurrect a hair follicle once it has died, much like when brain cells die. Therefore, it is suggested that when using any treatment for hair loss, beginning early will be critical to optimal success. The primary target of Low-Level Laser Therapy and red light hair loss therapies are people who have temporarily lost their hair due to issues such as emotional and physical stress, medication side effects, or other conditions, such as male pattern baldness or menopause.

How fast can I see results?

Significant results can be seen after the fourth month. Although hair cells typically divide and generate fast, it will not be an overnight process. You did not lose your hair overnight, so it is not going to grow back overnight either.

How long do I need to be under the red light?

This will depend on the type of device you use, it is important to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Longer treatment times do not necessarily mean that it will give better results. It is not necessary to spend an hour in the light with the hope that your hair will grow faster.
