Treatment for thinning of hair in women

Diode emits light of wavelength 630-670 nanometers (red light) or infrared radiation is put into use to activate the dormant hair roots or follicles to grow new hair. Other scalp treatment and head massages that encourage blood circulation are also part of the therapy.
