Red Light Therapy

From speeding up healing to building skin-improving collagen, red light therapy has the power to put your body’s own healing abilities to work. 

What is Red Light Therapy?

Also known as LED light therapy or low level light therapy (LLLT), red light therapy emits light close to the infrared range. This wavelength of energy alerts  your cells to activate their metabolism and enter healing mode. Red light stimulation produces beneficial results with no harmful effects.

How Does Red Light or LED Light Therapy Work?

Red light therapy uses LED lights that emit wavelengths of red light that enter the body and stimulate cells to build collagen and put more energy into healing. This can improve conditions all over the body, from rejuvenating the face to easing joint soreness. 

Red light affects the mitochondria, the small bodies inside cells that make energy. The mitochondria begin to produce extra energy, which the cell then uses for rebuilding and repairing. 

Effects of red light or LED light therapy include:

  • Improved wound healing
  • Less pain and soreness
  • Decrease in signs of aging
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Increased hair growth

 

Used on the face, red light therapy has powerful anti-aging effects by stimulating collagen, which smooths wrinkles and tightens skin. Used on areas of thinning hair, it can stimulate the sleeping hair follicles to start making hair again. 

What is Red Light Therapy Like?

LED lights close to the skin will emit red light. Your skin absorbs this light to a depth of approximately 5 millimeters, allowing it to reach deeper layers of skin where new growth and energy production occur. 

You will not feel any discomfort, although the light may feel warm. The length of treatment varies widely depending on the area to be treated, the results desired, and your provider’s treatment plan. 

Red light therapy uses wavelengths of light safe for all skin types, so most people are good candidates

You can resume your usual activities immediately. You may look flushed for a few hours, but this resolves by itself. 

If you came for aesthetic improvements to your face, you can expect to see results develop over several weeks as your body builds new collagen. This strengthens and tightens the appearance of your skin. 

For those looking to relieve pain or heal stubborn wounds, you can expect to see decreased pain and better wound healing. Joint pain may resolve due to increased collagen cushioning. 

For people looking to regrow thinning hair, you can expect to see more hair regrowing over the following weeks and months. Hair has natural cycles, so the increased energy triggers hair follicles to rejoin the other hairs in their growth pattern.
