Red Light Therapy

Red Light is FDA approved! It is proven to simulate both collagen and elastin production in skin while activating the lymphatic system for potentially improving detoxification. The light penetrates roughly 5 mm below the skin surface creating promising results.


What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy (RLT) is a controversial therapeutic technique that uses red low-level wavelengths of light to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, among other conditions. In the early 1990s, RLT was used by scientists to help grow plants in space. The scientists found that the intense light from red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) helped promote growth and photosynthesis of plant cells. Red light was then studied for its potential application in medicine, more specifically to find out if RLT could increase energy inside human cells. The researchers hoped that RLT could be an effective way to treat the muscle atrophy, slow wound healing, and bone density issues caused by weightlessness during space travel.

What Are Some Of The Benefits?

Additional clinical research is needed to prove that RLT is effective. At the moment, however, there’s some evidence to suggest that RLT may have the following benefits:

  1. promotes wound healing and tissue repair
  2. improves hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia
  3. help for the short-term treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
  4. stimulates healing of slow-healing wounds, like diabetic foot ulcers
  5. reduces psoriasis lesions
  6. aids with short-term relief of pain and morning stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis
  7. reduces some of the side effects of cancer treatments, including oral mucositisTrusted Source
  8. improves skin complexion and builds collagenTrusted Source to diminish wrinkles
  9. helps to mend sun damageTrusted Source
  10. prevents recurring cold sores from herpes simplex virus infections
  11. improves the health of jointsTrusted Source in people with degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee
  12. helps diminish scars
  13. relieves pain and inflammationTrusted Source in people with pain in the Achilles tendons
