Red light therapy can bring back youth to your face – Without botox and surgeries. Red light waves can relieve your pain – Without medication. They can eliminate scars and win the war on acne – Without any side effects.
Facts or fiction?
Red light therapy seems to be gaining enourmous popularity in recent years, and I’m here to seperate facts from fiction and share with you only the science based benefits of red light therapy. Interested? Here we go.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Deep penetrating red (and/or infrared) light therapy is actually a non invasive, unpainful way to bring light in a certain wavelength, felt as heat.
If you are exposed to sunlight every day, than you are exposed to red light too. But NASA has discovered that you can isolate only the red light and leave out UV rays, for example, to only enjoy the positive effects of the sun, without the negative ones.
So..what does red light therapy DO?
The Proven Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Anti-Aging, Skin Rejuvenation
Red light easily penetrates the skin, boosts circulation and brings more blood and nutrients where ever you point it to.
It also stimulates collagen and elastin production – The best friends of the youthful skin. Collagen helps plump the skin, while elastin firms the skin.
The red light energizes and repairs damaged cells, stimulates collagen and elastin production, which results in younger looking skin, rejuvenated and plumped.
This was proven in more than a few studies – You can see some of them in my research and studies page.
Home devices for anti aging include 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:
1. Wrinkles and fine lines
(See my post – Red Light Therapy for Wrinkles – Does it Really Work?)
2. Tightening and firming (non-surgical face lift)
3. Blemishes and redness (by fighting inflammation naturally)
5. Age spots and hyperpigmentation on face, hands, neck
6. Acne scars
If you like what you’re finding here (I sure did when I first found out!), check out my post about the 3 (proven) mind-blowing benefits of red light skin therapy and how you can enjoy them at home – HERE.
Through increased collagen and elastin production, coupled with boosted blood circulation, red light therapy promotes the healing of your skin, so it can be used effectively for a multitude of skin problems - Without medication or chemical lotions and creams.
These benefits were found after discovering the amazing ability of red light waves in healing wounds – Faster and better (while preventing scars too).
When you boost your collagen production it doesn’t only rejuvenate your skin – It repairs any type of skin damage, such as:
- Acne Scars
- Athlete’s foot
Can you imagine all of these things achieved – Without medication? Without the dermatologist? Without chemicals?
You don’t have to imagine anymore.
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 all types of aches and pains.
At first it sounds a little weird: How can light help with chronic back pain, fir example?
Well, it’s quite simple. The infrared light (invisible light) penetrates deep in our body (all the way to the nerves and bones) and repairs/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 and they penetrate to a depth of about 30-40 mm, which makes it an effective pain reliever 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
(To see studies that prove these claims – See my studies page)
