Red Light Therapy

The science behind the beauty.

Safe and effective red light therapy—a revolution for any skincare routine.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy is a treatment that helps skin, muscle tissue, and other parts of your body heal. It exposes you to low levels of red or near-infrared light that is a proven method of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, backed by numerous research and clinical studies.

In aesthetic applications, red light is often emitted through LEDs (light emitting diodes) which produce light energy with very little heat, providing a non-invasive, comfortable experience for the client. It is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to naturally reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles, while improving the overall appearance of the skin.

Optimal red light therapy results are achieved with regular use, with the most noticeable reduction of fine lines and wrinkles occurring at 6 to 8 weeks of treatment.

How can red light therapy improve your skin?

By emitting a precise 620-nanometer wavelength, our red light therapy gently penetrates the skin, promoting collagen production and enhancing overall skin vitality. This non-invasive, safe approach revitalizes your skin's appearance, offering a radiant, youthful glow without downtime or side effects.

Origin of Red Light Therapy

To find a solution for growing plants and feeding astronauts in space, NASA enlisted the expertise of plant biologists, who looked to LED lights for the answer. Once LEDs proved to be successful in plant growth, NASA investigated the use of LED therapy in tissue healing and found positive results. This research fueled the development of innovative and powerful LEDs that are now used in a variety of medical and aesthetic applications.

How Does Light Therapy Work?

Just as plants harness sunlight through chlorophyll to bloom and thrive, our skin too has the incredible ability to absorb different wavelengths of light, triggering a cascade of rejuvenating cellular activities. Each hue in the light spectrum is a key to unlock specific skin benefits:

  • Infrared Light: Invisible yet powerful, this wavelength dives deep into your skin, awakening fibroblasts to ramp up collagen and elastin production. It enhances circulation, refining your skin's texture and reducing the appearance of pores for a smooth, flawless finish.
  • Red Light: A true skin revitalizer, red light works at the cellular level to boost your skin's natural healing powers. It stimulates collagen and elastin, supercharges cell energy, and combats inflammation, reversing the signs of aging and environmental damage for a youthful, vibrant glow.
  • Amber Light: The calming whisper in the light spectrum, amber light gently soothes your skin, diminishing the look of tired, dull complexions. It's the touch of tranquility your skin craves for serene, balanced beauty.
  • Green Light: An expert in color correction, green light targets pigmentation issues, easing inflammation and aiding in the repair of broken capillaries. It's your solution to even-toned, harmonious skin radiance.
  • Blue Light: The bane of acne-causing bacteria, blue light delves into the pores to purify and regulate oil production. It's a soothing balm that calms your skin, making it an ally in your quest for clear, serene skin.

Are there risks?

LED light therapy is widely recognized for its safety, particularly as it doesn't involve harmful UV rays or heat, minimizing the risk of thermal damage.

Moreover, this therapy doesn't require recovery time, unlike more aggressive treatments. However, it's important to note that certain conditions may increase sensitivity to light therapy.

Individuals using medications causing light sensitivity or topical treatments like Retin A may experience heightened skin sensitivity. Reactions are possible under these circumstances, so consulting with a skincare professional before starting LED light therapy is advisable.

This technology, effective across all skin types, offers a non-invasive option to address various skin concerns and enhance overall skin health.
