Red light therapy is a natural, alternative therapy shown to stimulate fibroblasts which causes an increase in collagen and elastin, restoring the skin to its more supple state.
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 to a depth of about 8 to 10 mm. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level and kicking off a whole series of metabolic events including:
● Stimulate the production of ATP, an important source of energy in body tissues
● Blood circulation, which reduces swelling and inflammation
● Collagen production that builds elasticity in the skin
- White blood cells, that work to repair damaged tissues
Aside from its cosmetic and anti-aging benefits, RED light therapy can provide relief from chronic and acute pain including muscle pain, joint pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, tissue and nerve damage, and can decrease injury healing time.
