Infra red light - seizure cause?

Two weeks ago when I was at the beauty shop, the woman in the chair next to me had an infra red light on her hair.  No other seats were available and next morning when exercising, I blacked out while getting off the bike.  These "black outs" come with very little warning, so all I can do is to realx my body.  Could the infra red light have triggered this seizure?
