No matter if you want to return the lost youth to your skin, finally reduce those acne scars or just relieve your aches and pains WITHOUT drugs – There’s a (red) light at the end of the tunnel.
Red light therapy seems to be gaining an enormous amount of popularity in recent years, and for very good reasons. This breakthrough treatment, first discovered by NASA, has so many benefits and uses, and so little (if any) risks and side effects.
Deep penetrating red light therapy is actually a non invasive, cost-effective, and risk-free alternative treatment to all sorts of skin problems, skin appearance and is very effective as a natural pain reliever.
More and more traditional tanning salons now offer red light therapy beds, but the treatments are usually expensive and you have to schedule appointments and drive to the place, which can be very difficult for busy people.
Fortunately, you can now get a red light therapy home device, and enjoy the exact same benefits, but for a fraction of the price. Not to mention comfortable availability of having your own device at home to use when ever you want it or need it.
The Proven Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Red light easily penetrates the skin, boosts circulation and bringing more blood and nutrients to the area. It also stimulates vital collagen and elastin production. Collagen helps plump the skin, while elastin firms the skin. The red light is energizing and repairing damaged cells, stimulating collagen and elastin and giving the skin back its youthful look.
Home devices for skin rejuvenation typically use visible red light at a wavelength of 660 nm – That penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm – Making it more beneficial for treating problems close to the surface of the skin, such as:
- Wrinkles and fine lines (See my post – Red Light Therapy for Wrinkles – Does it Really Work?)
- Tightening and firming (non-surgical face lift alternative,)
- Blemishes and redness
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation on face, hands, neck
- Acne scars

Red Light Therapy for Skin Problems
As I wrote above, red light promotes the healing of the skin and so can be used effectively for many skin problems, without medication (we all know their dangerous side effects), and chemical-loaded lotions and creams.
You can use a home device for these conditions (Warning: Do not use it if you have an active skin infection)
- Acne Scars
- Athlete’s foot
Red Light Therapy for Pain Relief
Red light therapy for pain relief is a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free, and chemical-free alternative that has been shown to reduce and in some cases even eliminate aches and pains.
At first it sounds a little weird: How can light help with my chronic back pain?
Well, it’s quite simple. The infrared light (invisible light) penetrates deeper in our body and repairs or regenerates cell components. The infrared light also activates the production of endorphins and blocks pain-transmitting chemicals.
The home devices for this purpose typically use Infrared light – Deep penetrating light – at 880 nm penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm, which makes it an effective pain relief for:
- Herniated and bulging discs
- Muscle related back pain
- Pulled and strained muscles, Muscle spasms
- Nerve injuries
- Sports injuries – Bone fractures and chips, sprains, tennis elbow etc.
- Neck pain and stiffness
