Red light therapy tightens skin and improves skin’s elasticity by using visible light in the 633nm region. The wavelength activates and speeds up the production of collagen and elastin – two vital skin ingredients responsible for achieving an anti-wrinkle effect.
How does it work?
Red light at 620nm is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) production for enhanced cell vitality and permeability, increased production of new collagen, and increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150 – 200 percent faster when exposed to certain light wavelengths, and research has shown red light delivers powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue.
Does red light therapy produce the same light as from the sun? Can it damage my skin?
Too much sunlight can affect the skin due to the emission of broad spectrum ultraviolet energy through the atmosphere. Red light lamps utilize the visible spectra of light at 633nm (red), but contain no UVA or UVB rays.
How does red light therapy differ from laser treatments?
Red light therapy does not cut, burn, or break the skin as with laser treatments. Lasers use heat and concentrated light to vaporize or remove tissue. Red light lamps produce no vaporization or burning of tissue, and therefore no inflammation or erythema. Red light therapy is one of the few non-invasive tools available that can reverse the appearance of aging skin, such as wrinkles and mottled skin tone.
How soon will I see results?
There are few immediate changes to skin, as change occurs naturally over a period of weeks. Everyone reacts differently, depending on age and the condition of skin. In general, best results are achieved over a 4 – 6 week period of 3 sessions per week.
Will this treat acne, age spots, and sun damage?
Red light helps remove the bacteria that causes acne, and generates cellular activity that deals with age spots and sun damage.
Does red light help with cellulite?
Yes. It will help smooth and reduce cellulite deposits.
Does red light therapy work equally well on all skin types?
Red light therapy is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. The main prerequisite is that skin be clean and free of makeup for effective light transmission.
How long will the results last?
Results depend on the length of treatment and the original conditions being treated. Skin rejuvenation is a dynamic process. If maintenance treatments are discontinued, natural expression lines will gradually return over the course of time, at which point re-treatment can be implemented.
