What is Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself.” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to Red Light wavelengths.
Red Light in wavelengths between 630-660 nm (nanometers) has the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, energizing fibroblast cells that make collagen and elastin production. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates the skin’s overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement, but it actually is the result of the body healing itself. Red Light Therapy targets and treats the entire face and body because the treatment is done in a full-sized bed similar to a tanning bed. While the Red Light bed may look like a tanning bed, Red Light Therapy is not dangerous because it produces a wavelength way outside of the UV range.
