Red light therapy at Skin Care Doctors penetrates deep into your skin, where it can help to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote collagen production, stimulating your body’s natural healing processes.
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.
