Red light therapy is a non-invasive holistic treatment that uses red light to rejuvenate and heal the skin. Red light therapy has been used in Europe for years to treat acne, psoriasis and other skin conditions. The science behind red light therapy is based upon the fact that when applied to the skin, it promotes cellular turnover and improved healing of wounds.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy works by penetrating into the upper layers of your skin where it stimulates collagen production, increasing circulation to promote healing and repair damaged tissue. It also helps reduce inflammation and kill bacteria in the wound site, which helps prevent infection or scarring from forming.
Red light therapy uses a specific wavelength of red light (600-670 nanometers) that has been shown to have positive effects on our bodies. This wavelength is absorbed by cells in the body and converted into energy. The energy travels through your body to the parts that need it most, stimulating your cells to speed up their natural processes. This can mean faster recovery from an injury or quicker healing from an infection like a cold or flu.
What Conditions Can Be Treated With Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is most commonly used for treating acne lesions and mild sun damage like wrinkles, brown spots and age spots on the face or body. It’s also used to treat scars resulting from trauma or surgery as well as stretch marks caused by pregnancy or weight gain/loss.
Red light therapy isn’t new. It’s been used for decades to treat skin conditions, such as acne and psoriasis. But it’s only recently become popular among people who want to improve their overall health and wellbeing, including athletes, beauty enthusiasts and those looking to lose weight.
Studies show that red light therapy can help with pain relief and healing of injuries. Red light therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that can be used to treat a wide range of skin conditions. It’s been used in the medical field to treat acne, rosacea and psoriasis.
The treatment targets specific wavelengths of light that can be absorbed by the skin. These wavelengths stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins which give your skin its elasticity and strength.Red light therapy has also been shown to treat wrinkles, age spots, scarring and stretch marks by increasing the production of fibroblasts (cells responsible for the production of collagen).
There are many red light therapy lamps and products on the market depending on what part of the body you are wanting to use it for.
