How RedRestore Works: The Science of LLLT

Hair loss can have a devastating impact on your life.

Not only does it hit the fast forward button on your looks, but perhaps even more significant is the way it can hijack your life and dominate your thoughts.

From the moment when you first wake up in the morning and see all those freshly shed hairs on your pillowcase or take a shower and experience the trauma of seeing handfuls of hair falling out, your attention is focused on your hair.


We Understand

At RedRestore, we understand that hair loss isn't just another fact of life”

Hair loss doesn't just affect how you look. 

It can affect your confidence, your self-esteem, and rob you of the ability to enjoy your life.

But the good news is that there is a solution.

A New Approach That Works

Using RedRestore you can:

  • hit the brakes on your hair loss
  • thicken your existing hair
  • and stimulate the growth of new hair

RedRestore's FDA-cleared low-level laser treatment is a safe, painless, non-invasive way to treat both male pattern baldness and female baldness with clinically proven technology.

It uses no-drugs, has no known side effects, is totally discreet, and you'll incur no ongoing costs.

So what exactly is Low-Level Laser Therapy?

In the 1960s, scientists discovered that when low-level, low-wavelength lasers are directed at living tissue, a process called photobiostimulation occurs. 

Here, cells absorb this laser light and several biological effects take place, one of which is the regrowing of hair.

Since this discovery, scientists have explored the vast number of biological effects of low-level, low-wavelength red light, such as NASA who used it to stimulate plant growth in space, and an entirely new branch of medicine known as low-level laser therapy (or red light therapy) has emerged.

But, of course, at RedRestore, we're most interested in using low-level lasers to regrow hair.

And numerous clinical studies (including one from Harvard University) confirm that low-level lasers giving off low-wavelength red light in the 630-670 nanometre range (the exact type that we use in our RedRestore cap) are effective at:

  • stopping hair loss
  • thickening existing hair
  • and promoting hair growth

But how exactly does this work?

Well, first we need to take a brief detour into the world of the hair cycle to understand how hair grows.

The Hair Cycle and How it Relates to Hair Loss

Each of the thousands of hair follicles on your scalp goes through a natural three-phase process called the hair cycle. 

  • Anagen - This is the growth phase. For about 2-8 years, strong, healthy hair grows from the root of the hair follicle.
  • Catagen - Also known as the 'transitional' phase, here, hair growth slows and then eventually stops, the hair detaches from the blood supply, and the follicle shrinks. This phase lasts for 4-6 weeks
  • Telogen - Also known as the 'resting' phase, here the old hair strand falls out and the follicle lies dormant for around 2-3 months. Then a new anagen phase begins. 

These three phases repeat over and over again, with each follicle following this cycle according to its own independent clock. 

In the scalp of the average, healthy person, about 90% of hair is in the growth phase, and only about 8-9% in the resting phase, which accounts for the 100 or so hairs the average person loses every day. 

However, if the hair cycle is disrupted, thinning and balding can occur. 


So What Causes Hair Loss?

According to research, the main culprit in both men and women with androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss) is a hormone called DHT.

DHT chokes the life out of your follicles, not only shrinking them but also reducing blood flow and access to important nutrients. This creates a shorter hair life cycle, causes hair to fall out sooner, delays growth of new hair, and makes the hair that does grow thinner, wispier, and shorter than normal. 

Eventually, DHT can even cause follicles to shut down entirely.  




How Low-Level Laser Therapy Can Combat Hair Loss

Clinical studies show that low-level laser red-light:

  • extends the growth (anagen) phase of the hair
  • boosts hair growth during the anagen stage
  • prevents hair from prematurely entering the transition (catagen) stage
  • and gives dormant hair follicles the kiss of life, moving them out of the telogen phase and back into the growth phase

When wearing your RedRestore cap, concentrated red light produced by the 272 medical-grade (1360 mW output), low-wavelength lasers penetrate about 5mm below the surface of the scalp and produce several hair-stimulating effects.

  1. Red Light Fuels Your Follicles - Red-light gives your tired hair follicles a much-needed energy boost by increasing the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the energy source your follicles need to grow hair. With more available fuel, your follicles not only function more efficiently but can even repair the damage they've suffered. 
  2. Red Light Improves Cell Metabolism - This makes your follicles more productive at growing strong, healthy hair.
  3. Red Light Increases Blood Circulation - Like a wilting plant that's brought back to life through careful watering, red-light therapy increases the blood supply to your follicles. This means more nutrients get delivered to your hair cells which helps them stay healthy and encourages the growth of strong hair.
  4. Red Light Helps Reduce and Remove Harmful DHT - Improved blood circulation also helps prevent the buildup of harmful DHT in your scalp by transporting it away. Also, red light reduces the production of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that the body needs to create DHT, which means less DHT is produced.
  5. Red Light Stimulates Your Stem Cells - Clinical studies show that red light stimulates stem cells in your hair follicles and pushes them back into the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle. 
  6. Red Light Reduces Inflammation - DHT-related inflammation quite literally chokes the life out of your hair follicles. Using red-light, you can reduce the inflammation and release your hair from DHT's stranglehold. 


How Quickly Will I See Results?

From the first moment you put on your RedRestore cap, the low-level lasers begin working, but, like all hair stimulation treatments, the results are cumulative. 

This means both that the results are more profound the longer you use RedRestore and that you should expect a small delay before you begin to see the results. 

But in as little as 12 weeks, you can begin to notice that hair shedding has reduced to a healthy rate and that your existing hair looks stronger, healthier, and thicker, and, within the first 6 months, you should start to notice new baby hairs developing. 


Why RedRestore Uses Lasers and NOT LEDs

In the RedRestore cap, we use genuine low-level lasers and not LEDs. 

That's because lasers are:

  • more powerful, which means they can penetrate deeper into your scalp to stimulate hair follicles
  • able to create uniform coverage and bathe your entire scalp in beneficial red light 
  • able to produce 'coherent light' (light that's all the same wavelength), and therefore maintain the 650nm red light that studies show is optimal for growing hair (something that LEDs simply cannot do)

It's for these reasons that nearly all of the research on red-light-powered hair stimulation focuses on more powerful lasers rather than cheap LEDs. It's also why clinics prefer lasers over LEDs.

And it's why we feel you should have access to this same powerful hair restoration technology using RedRestore.
