Red Light Therapy

What is Red Light Therapy and How Does it Work?

Red light therapy is the use of infrared light that easily and deeply penetrates skin moving dormant blood cells and boosting blood circulation while distributing nutrients throughout the body. It also helps promote collagen and elastin production at a higher rate than normal. Red light therapy is becoming more commonly prescribed by doctors every day for a variety of reasons and a wide range of ailments. Red light therapy has no known negative side effects and is a pain free, noninvasive form of therapy.

If you're looking for skin rejuvenation:

Light easily passes through your skin and wakes up dormant blood cells. When those cells get moving again, more collagen and elastin are produced and help to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Red light therapy can also help fade cellulite and stretch marks by evenly distributing the increased amounts of collagen and elastin. It can help with acne, cleaning your skin from the deepest layers and pushing toxins out without using harsh chemicals or products with negative side effects. *As with most acne treatments, your acne may get worse before it gets better because the moving blood cells are trying to clean out your pores first before healing your skin.

If you're looking for skin treatments:

Red light therapy can help with many different skin treatments such as rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema. It can also help fade acne scarring and regular scars from cuts and burns. Again, the boosted circulation of blood cells increases opportunity for your body to heal. Your body wants to heal on its own, but no two bodies are made up the same way. When your blood cells slow down, most skin issues occur, with red light therapy penetrating the skin at a deep level and fast rate, you're giving your skin the opportunity to catch up on the healing process without harming your skin.

If you're looking for pain relief:

Red light therapy is not only helpful with cosmetic problems, it can also help if you have any joint or muscle pain. The light penetrates deeply enough into our bodies that it can help repair and regenerate blood cells. It can also send out feel good endorphins throughout our body and block pain transmitting chemicals from reaching our brain. Doctors have used red light therapy for each of the following: arthritis, herniated discs, muscle pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia, nerve injuries, back pain, bone fractures and chips, and much more. Red light therapy has also been known to be helpful with Seasonal Affective Disorder and relieving migraines. Getting that dose of infrared light releases positive endorphins and helps relieve tension throughout the body, often lessening the pressure of a migraine.

*Despite having no known side effects, we suggest wearing eye protection as it is a very bright light close to your eyes.
