Light Hair Therapy

Light Hair Therapy is based on the established scientific principle that light, even ordinary light, has an effect on cell function. Scientists have been aware of this fact for hundreds of years. We witness this during the summer months when we are exposed to longer days of natural sunlight. During this period, our hair tends to grow faster and often appears thicker. Light, or lack of thereof, influences our moods and light deprivation; it can trigger mood disorders, such as depression.

Light is powerful: it can destroy and it can heal. Remove a plant from the sun’s rays and it withers and dies. Place a newborn infant with jaundice under a “blue light” and the jaundice disappears. Clinical studies have indicated that light therapy may stop the progression of hair loss and it may promote hair regrowth.

The NeoLTS Light Therapy System utilizes patented magnetic induction lighting technology to produce high intensity light at specific therapeutic wavelengths with unique patented green and red light spectrums.

Light therapy may stimulate the tissues of the scalp, significantly increasing the number of red corpuscles that deliver life-giving oxygen and nutrients to the hair bulb. It sets in motion a chain reaction of cellular events, increasing protein synthesis, cell division, tissue regeneration and micro-circulation of the blood supplies. This will sweep debris from the hair shaft, swell the cortex and close the cuticle, and it might potentially increase hair density.

Most evidence in the medical literature regarding light based therapy and hair loss outcomes is observational and although good results do occur, such results are not as consistent as we would like it to be. Prospective randomized case-controlled studies in this subject are lacking.
