Red light therapy uses infrared light, which has a longer wavelength than visible light. This enables it to penetrate deeper into the skin and provide many therapeutic benefits, including improvement of the skin's appearance and structure as well as relief from pain. There is no UV light associated with red light therapy.
Red light therapy can provide relief from chronic and acute pain including muscle pain, joint pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, tissue and nerve damage, and it can minimize injury healing time. The infrared light penetrates below the surface of the skin to speed up the healing process. It also stimulates the production of ATP which helps increase blood circulation, reducing swelling and inflammation. ATP also stimulates white blood cells that work to repair damaged tissues, and increases collagen production that builds elasticity in the skin and can aid in wound healing.
Because red light therapy triggers the body's own defenses, it actually treats the source of the pain and doesn't just mask the symptoms. This therapy provides relief from pain and discomfort without the side effects of drugs or surgery.

The initial effect is clearer, brighter & tighter skin. The long-term effect is improved skin clarity, tone & texture. Fine lines & wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes are reduced, while the effects of environmental damage and chronological aging are minimized. You will experience healing benefits as well.
There are few immediate changes to skin, as change occurs naturally over a period of weeks. Everyone reacts differently depending on their age and the condition of their skin. In general, the best results are achieved over a 12 week period.
Results depend on the length of time of treatment and the original conditions being treated. Skin rejuvenation is a dynamic process. If maintenance treatments are discontinued, a gradual loss of results will occur over time, as with normal skin aging.
