What is Red Light Therapy?

Skin Rejuvenation, or Red Light Therapy, is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself.” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to Red Light wavelengths.

Reduce wrinkles and have firmer skin!

Red Light in wavelengths between 630-660 nm (nanometers) hasthe ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, energizing fibroblast cells that make collagen and elastin production. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates the skin’s overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy, such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin , may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement, but it actually is the result of the body healing itself.

Red Light Therapy targets and treats the entire face and body because the treatment is done in a full-sized bed similar to a tanning bed. While the Red Light bed may look like a tanning bed, Red Light Therapy is not dangerous because it produces a wavelength way outside of the UV range. Red Light is often referred to as near infrared light. Why? As demonstrated in the visible light chart, light from 600nm to 750nm is near or close to infrared light. Infrared light is outside of the visual light spectrum, meaning we cannot see this wavelength of light with the human eye.

Other Benefits

Red Light Therapy creates a healthy glow, smooths overall skin tone, builds collagen, reduces wrinkles (including crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles, forehead wrinkles and laugh lines), speeds the healing of blemishes (like acne and rosacea) and wounds, repairs sun damage, reduces redness, flushing, and broken capillaries, fades scars and stretch marks, brings more moisture to your skin, prevents hair loss and stimulates regrowth.
