Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy has been proven effective for treating an immense array of conditions and disorders, including skin problems, wounds and muscle tears, chronic pain, hair loss, arthritis, inflammation, injuries and even neurodegenerative brain disorders. Thousands of studies and clinical trials conducted over the past several decades confirm its effectiveness. 

What's all the rage about Red Light Therapy?

Red and near-infrared light therapy is the process of using medical-grade LED lights to deliver concentrated & specific wavelengths of light to our bodies (660-850nm). The cells in our bodies are able to absorb these specific wavelengths of light, using them to stimulate ATP production within the mitochondria which helps our cells produce more energy.

When our cells have more energy, they are able to perform their cellular functions more efficiently and effectively, which leads to the numerous benefits of red and near-infrared light therapy.

When delivered within the optimal wavelengths and energy levels, red and near-infrared light protect your body’s cells from nitric oxide damage, which can otherwise stop the cell’s production of ATP when you’re stressed or ill. Red light photons allow your cells to continue utilizing oxygen effectively by minimizing the absorption of nitric oxide. Only red light can reach all the way into a cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration to improve your appearance, performance, and overall well-being.

Red light therapy works by acting on the “power plant” in your body’s cells called mitochondria. With more energy, other cells can do their work more efficiently, such as repairing skin, boosting new cell growth, and enhancing skin rejuvenation. More specifically, certain cells absorb light wavelengths and are stimulated to work.

Red light therapy may work in skin health to:

  • Stimulate collagen production, which gives skin its structure, strength, and elasticity.

  • Increase fibroblast production, which makes collagen. Collagen is a component of connective tissue that builds skin.

  • Increase blood circulation to the tissue.

  • Reduce inflammation in cells.

Red light therapy is promoted as a treatment for some common skin conditions, including to:

  • Improve wound healing.

  • Reduce stretch marks

  • Reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.

  • Improve facial texture.

  • Improve psoriasisrosacea, and eczema.

  • Improve scars and acne.

  • Improve sun-damaged skin.

  • Improve hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia.

 

Red light therapy is not associated with any side effects, as this therapy is not toxic, not invasive, and not as harsh as some topical skin treatments. Unlike the cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning booths, RLT doesn’t use this type of light. Although overuse can negate the benefits. It is recommended to expose your skin to Red Light between

2-5 times per week for 10-20 minutes each time.  And the more skin that catches the light the better the overall results. Thats why coming in or a full body treatment is the most efficient way to receive the greatest benefits for your investment and time.
