Light Therapy 101

Red light therapy has been proven to be safe in over 15 years of use by NASA, thousands of physicians and hundreds of thousands of consumers. As a general rule, if you can tolerate 20 minutes in the sun, then you can tolerate 20 minutes under Red Light Therapy. There are some exceptions to that rule though. If you have a photosensitive skin condition (such as lupus), then you should consult with your physician before starting red light therapy.

Eye protection should be used when near-infrared mode is active. We provide eyewear with every Vital Red Light purchase. You should not shine a red light device directly in your eyes - just as you would never look directly towards the sun. We recommend initially using the product in a well-lit room to allow your eyes to become accustomed to the light. You may see a blue/green tint after first use (this is completely normal as your eyes are adjusting to the bright light).

Our general rule of thumb is that if it is safe and tolerable for a person to be outside in the sun for 20 minutes, then it is probably also safe for that person to have 20 minute exposure to Red Light Therapy. Red light therapy products are approved for all skin types, ages, and even your pets! Read our complete guide to red light therapy here.

Red light therapy is becoming a top choice for people seeking relief from chronic skin conditions, muscle and joint pain, and those who want to reduce the visible signs of aging. Read our complete guide to red light therapy here to explore the benefits.

 

Products

All Vital Red Light devices come with a 30-day return period as well as a 2-year limited warranty.  To obtain warranty service, please contact our Customer Experience Team at support@vitalredlight.com and we will respond via email to provide support. Please include your order number, as well as a description of what is wrong with your device. 

Vital Red Light is on of the first red light therapy companies to take extra steps to reduce the light flicker to as low as possible. Just like EMFs, our environments are surrounded by high-flicker technology; from fluorescent lights to cell phones, TVs, tablets, etc. This seemingly innocuous high-flicker cannot be perceived with the naked eyes, but over time it causes cellular degradation — especially to the eyes and brain that leads to headaches, migraines, mood and behavioral disorders and more.

While we understand the appeal of combining sauna time with Vital Red Light therapy, we recommend you don't use your Vital device in a sauna for your safety. As our devices require a lot of power, they may get very hot while in use—and the hot temperatures may pose an electrical safety risk. 

 

However, we must note that using your Vital light before or after your sauna session can be very beneficial. Red lights and saunas complement each other exceptionally well. As saunas deliver energy in different near infrared vs far infrared wavelengths, there is no effective overlap between the two therapies.
