Red Light Therapy is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and skin problems including acne, eczema, psoriasis and inflammation.
What is Red Light Therapy?
One emerging type of anti-aging treatment has recently gained popularity, but has shown amazing results for years. This treatment, discovered by NASA, is called Red light therapy. Red light therapy is characterized by infrared light, which is a unique type of light that has a stronger wavelength than other types of light. This enables it to penetrate deeper into the skin and provide many therapeutic benefits including improvement in the skin’s appearance and structure as well as relief from pain. There is NO UV light associated with Red light therapy.
What are the benefits of Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy helps to reduce pain & swelling, increases lymphatic activity, strengthens the immune system, accelerates cell regeneration, increases circulation, increases anti-viral properties, encourages collagen production, and can decrease injury healing time. Originally discovered by NASA, Red light therapy is now used by professionals to promote healing with powerful results.
Infrared light penetrates below the surface of skin to speed up healing time. Red light has the ability to stimulate the production of ATP, an important source of energy in body tissues. This allows ATP to promote rapid action by the body’s defenses. ATP helps to increase blood circulation, which reduces swelling and inflammation. Red light activated ATP stimulates white blood cells that work to repair damaged tissues, and increases collagen production that builds elasticity in the skin and can aid in wound healing. ATP also activates endorphins that provide soothing relief from chronic and acute pain.
Because Red light therapy triggers the body’s own defenses, it actually treats the sources of pain and doesn’t just mask the symptoms. Red light therapy provides relief from pain and discomfort without the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs or surgery.
Red light therapy is a safe, natural, non-invasive way to promote healing by allowing the body’s tissue to absorb red light at a cellular level, converting it to cellular energy. Many studies have shown that this energy accelerates activity in the mitochondria (the part of the cell that generates protein, collagen, and healing materials) as well as improving blood flow in the area being treated, speeding healing and minimizing pain.
