What is Red Light Therapy and how it works?

Red Light Therapy is a near infrared LED light technology which has wavelengths ranging between 630-660 nm (nanometers). This wavelength is not dangerous because it is way outside of the UV range and is actually very close the infrared light spectrum, which is not visible to the human eye.

Red Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that has both cosmetic and healing effects. It was first developed by NASA to grow plants in space, now they use it to treat muscle and bone atrophy and decreased healing of wounds in astronauts. Leading cancer treatment specialists are also using LED lights to activate light-sensitive cancer treatment pills and having outstanding results in fighting otherwise unreachable brain tumors.

Skin problem treatment

This treatment has the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin stimulating the cells that produce collagen and elastin, it also repairs or regenerates cell components and activates the production of endorphins and blocks pain-transmitting chemicals. Basically, what it does is to activate our body’s natural healing process, resulting in cosmetic and pain relieving effects.

Red Light Therapy is safe and effective for all skin types, has no known side effects, downtime or pain and requires no after care. Some of its many applications are:
