Red Light Therapy

One emerging type of anti-aging treatment has recently gained popularity, but has shown amazing results for years. This treatment, developed by NASA and FDA approved, 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.

Red Light Therapy is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and skin problems including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis because infared light promotes collagen growth in skin tissue. RED light therapy has also been shown to provide relief from chronic and acute pain, and also increase injury healing time. Infrared light stimulates blood circulation and releases endorphins to provide a soothing effect.

Infrared light also stimulates the production of ATP, an essential energy source used in body tissues that promotes rapid healing. Because of its amazing benefits, traditional tanning salons have begun using RED light therapy beds as a sort of “reverse tanning bed.” This type of light therapy has become a breakthrough treatment because unlike cosmetic surgery, red light therapy is non invasive, cost-effective, and risk-free alternative to improving skin’s appearance.

Similar to the Sun, infrared light provides a warming effect on the skin, but without the presence of damaging UV Rays. Recommended therapy schedules are 3-4 days per week, for 4-6 weeks. After the initial treatment schedule it is recommended to continue 1-2 days per week. With no damaging effects, only positive results, it’s no surprise that RED light therapy is a great new way to improve your appearance and health.
