So What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy, also known as low-level light therapy or laser therapy, was first discovered by NASA in the 1980s as they explored the therapeutic effects that these natural wavelengths had on the human body. Since the discovery by NASA, red light therapy has been studied in hundreds of clinical trials with overwhelming positive results. It is no wonder why red light therapy is popping up in your local salon and spa. It is only a matter of time until this new, cutting-edge treatment modality makes its way into the mainstream.
How Red Light Therapy Works for Better Skin
Red light therapy is 100% natural, chemical-free and drug-free medium to combat the signs of aging and solve a whole host of other skin issues. Unlike most creams, serums, and procedures, red light therapy works with your body on a cellular level to bring about long-lasting and natural healing. Red light therapy penetrates different levels of the skin to excite cellular activity and increase blood supply to the skin's surface. Increased blood flow to the area means more nutrients and oxygen to nourish the skin cells. This also leads to the production of fibroblasts and collagen that aids in the correction and prevention of certain skin issues. Your skin and tissues are made up of a few different types of cells, namely fibroblasts, collagen, keratinocytes, and immune cells, all of which are important for regeneration. According to the latest scientific research, specific wavelengths of LED light can stimulate all of these cells – boosting collagen production and elastin. Additionally, red light is used across many other health issues to resolve the underlying cause of disease, irritation, and cellular dysfunction by stimulating energy production in the form of ATP. Enhanced ATP levels, otherwise known as your cellular energy source, leads to an increase in circulation and better-functioning skin.
5 Main Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Better Skin
1. Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
Red light therapy boosts collagen in the skin and promotes blood flow, leading to diminished fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet naturally.
2. Promotes faster skin healing and rejuvenation
Red light therapy promotes the formation of new blood vessels and tissue in the skin, leading to faster healing across the board for all kinds of wounds, injuries, scars, and acne.
3. Reduces scarring and balances skin tone
Red light therapy enhances collagen and elastin levels in order to heal old, stubborn scars. Red light also balances the melanin hormone level in your skin to improve the appearance of dark spots
4. Helps to get rid of acne
Red light therapy has been tested as an alternative acne treatment because it reduces the sebum (aka oil) production and changes some of the cellular behavior that causes acne.
5. Reduces Inflammation
Red light therapy tackles the root cause of most skin-related issues and redness – inflammation. Red light therapy works because it reduces oxidative stress which is responsible for inflammation and redness.
