Running through the gears to redline frequently will increase wear on the engine, but the redline is intended as a safe maximum speed for it to run, some would even say continuously. The ECU is well equipped to protect from all but mechanical over-rev (such as you would incur if you selected a too-low gear on a manual transmission and engage the clutch (= boom...)).

Have fun.
