Hair light therapy is a therapeutic solution based on a technology that progressively reduces hair loss, particularly in cases of androgenetic alopecia. It can stimulate the hair follicles and has no side effects, making it one of the most commonly recommended therapies.
The advantages of hair light therapy
- Stimulates hair growth and increases hair density
- Suitable for both men and women
- Recommended in cases of androgenetic alopecia
- A gentle solution that doesn’t require medication or surgery
- Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States
What is hair light therapy?
Hair light therapy is a non-invasive solution that effectively addresses hair loss problems.
Laser therapy’s goal is to improve the cellular activity of the scalp. This technology applies magnetic, infrared and laser energy to the patient’s scalp. The hair follicles will absorb the light, which will then stimulate their activity and therefore hair growth.
Another effect of light therapy is the normalization of related symptoms such as oily hair, dandruff and itching.
For which patients?
Laser therapy is recommended for both men and women and is often used in cases of androgenetic alopecia. It is particularly recommended in the following cases:
- early hair loss
- reduced rate of hair regrowth
- hair loss
- hair transplants
What are the results?
Many scientific studies indicate that phototherapy can have a positive impact on patients’ hair condition. It has been demonstrated that hair generally grows faster and more densely. In some cases, the patient’s hair condition improves significantly.
What happens during a light therapy session?
Generally, we recommend one light therapy session per week for three months (a total of twelve sessions). Each session lasts 20 minutes.
During these sessions, a helmet is placed a few centimeters from the patient’s scalp and a program defined during the hair diagnosis is carried out. The energies generated by the helmet penetrate the scalp before being transformed into energy by the hair follicles. The follicles’ activity increases, which improves the hair’s condition.
Follow-up examinations such as trichoscopy are done before the treatment and on the 12th session to assess the therapy’s effectiveness. The objective is to measure the diameter and density of the hair.
Photobiomodulation is very similar to photosynthesis: chlorophyll is to the plant what ATP is to the human body, and neither chlorophyll nor ATP can be regenerated without the presence of light.
Photobiomodulation was discovered and developed by Russian space research and NASA to alleviate the poor healing of wounds in space. It is based on a series of biochemical reactions caused by light irradiation of the tissues.

Laser Therapy FAQ
Are the results of a hair light therapy visible quickly?
NO – This is the downside of light therapy. You will have to wait at least ten sessions before you see any visible results. These results vary depending on the patient.
Are the results of light therapy for hair long-lasting?
YES – The results are long lasting if the treatment is performed on a regular basis and according to a specific renewal protocol.
I am sensitive to pain. Is it painful?
NO – Hair light therapy is completely painless, simply because it uses LED lamps that do not generate any heat. There is no risk of burns or even side effects.
Are there any contraindications to light therapy?
YES – Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with epilepsy, diabetes, skin diseases, hemophilia or skin inflammations and infections, and people taking medications or photosensitizing products.
Can I resume normal activity after my light therapy session?
YES – Hair light therapy is a gentle solution. However, sun exposure should be avoided for 24 hours after the treatment.
