Stimulate Cellular Renewal

Red light therapy devices are becoming increasingly popular as a non-invasive treatment for various conditions. These devices emit red light with wavelengths ranging from 620 to 700 nanometers, penetrating the skin and stimulating cellular activity. Red light therapy is a non-invasive alternative to more invasive treatments, and it is suitable for people of all ages and skin types.

What Is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy uses low-level wavelengths of red light to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. Red light therapy uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and is absorbed by the skin and underlying tissues. It works by penetrating the skin at a depth of about 5 millimeters, where the mitochondria of the cells absorb it. Once absorbed, red light energy is converted into cellular energy, which the cells use to repair and regenerate themselves. Known as photobiomodulation, this process has a wide range of therapeutic benefits. Red light therapy can increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote collagen and elastin production, which are essential for healthy skin. It can also increase the production of ATP, the cell's primary energy source.

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

Increased Circulation

Red light therapy can improve blood flow and circulation in the body, which can help with conditions such as high blood pressure and poor circulation.

Pain Relief

Red light therapy has been proven to reduce pain in the body, which can be beneficial for conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic pain.

Red light therapy can help improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Red Light Therapy: What to Expect

During a red light therapy treatment, you can expect to feel relaxed and comfortable. You will likely be asked to lie down or sit in front of a red light therapy device emitting a gentle, warm light. You may be given protective goggles to shield your eyes from the light. 

The duration of the treatment will depend on the specific therapy you are receiving, but most sessions last between 10 and 30 minutes. During the treatment, you may feel a slight warming sensation on your skin, but it should not be uncomfortable or painful. Some people report feeling relaxed or even a mild euphoria during the treatment.

After the treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Some people experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treated area, but this is usually temporary and should subside within a few hours. Overall, the treatment is safe and gentle and can benefit the body and mind.
