Heal & Repair Your Skin
Light Therapy uses red light to heal, renew and rejuvenate. Red light treatments are used in dermatology as an anti-aging and acne therapy, Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, stretch and scar marks. Red light therapy is used to reverse sun damage and improve the moisture balance of your skin. Red light helps increase the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients, reducing cellulite and improving skin's firmness and elasticity over your entire body! Red light waves boost metabolism rate in any live cell its applied to, greatly accelerating the recovery process. Medical studies found that under red light open wounds heal 200% faster! Working similarly to the way that photosynthesis works in plants, the light jump-starts the cellular activity and produces ATP (that transforms energy within cells) which is then carried to cells and tissue to begin rejuvenation. Red light fuels cell renewal, stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone and texture, controls pigmentation spots, reduces wrinkles and encourages vibrant, healthier-looking skin.
Pain & Inflammation Management
The red and far-infrared light spectrum also has amazing anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving qualities, important reasons for its use in the medical field. People with conditions as arthritis, chronic pain, injuries, MS, fibromyalgia, and many others are candidates for this integrative treatment. Light photons penetrate your skin increasing blood circulation, decreasing tension in muscles and muscle spasms. Red light is generally used for inflammatory conditions like bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis and pain control for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, tennis & golfer’s elbow, post-herpetic neuralgia and more. Light therapy is a safe alternative to any medications for pain management. The light together with heat, trigger acupuncture points, stabilizes the nervous system, allergies and even proved to be effective for seasonal affected disorder improving your mood, insomnia and depression.
Repair Of Muscle Tissue and Skin Rejuvenation
Red Light has been found to be useful for promoting wound healing, tissue repair and skin rejuvenation, although it does this through a different mechanism of action compared to many other laser resurfacing treatments. Red light therapy directly stimulates regenerative processes in the skin through increased cellular proliferation, migration and adhesion. Red light therapy has been shown to positively affect skin cells through the regeneration of fibroblasts, keratinocytes and modulation of immune cells (including mast cells, neutrophils and macrophages) all found within skin tissue.
Immunity and Reduced Side Effects of Cancer Treatments
Research done by NASA in conjunction with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital has shown that red light technology can successfully reduce symptoms experienced by cancer patients, including painful side effects caused by radiation or chemotherapy. Using far-red/near-infrared light-emitting diode devices has been shown to release long wavelength energy in the form of photons that stimulate cells to aid in healing.
NASA tested whether red light could treat oral mucositis in cancer patients, a very common and painful side effect of chemotherapy and radiation, and concluded that 96 percent of patients experienced an improvement in pain as a result of the red light treatment. Patients received light therapy by a nurse holding the WARP 75 device, which is roughly the size of an adult human hand. The WARP device was held close to the patient’s face and neck for only 88 seconds daily for 14 days. Researchers stated, “The red light device was well tolerated with no adverse effects to bone marrow and stem cell transplant patients….The red light device can provide cost-effective therapy since the device itself is less expensive than one day at the hospital.”
Similar red light technology is also now being utilized for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors, slow-healing wounds or infections, diabetic skin ulcers, and serious burns.
Reduced Depression and Fatigue
Another way to explain the benefits of red light is through the lens of Eastern medicine. Light therapy helps improve health, immunity and recovery, and can be compared to acupuncture’s mechanism of action:
Light is a form of energy, and our bodies are just big energy systems. Light has the power to stimulate specific meridian points and chakra zones in the human body.
Red is said to stimulate the first chakra because it correlates most strongly with our survival instinct (hence why it gives us energy and makes us act quickly, in order to motivate us to pursue things like money, food, sex, power, etc.).
While acupuncture uses tiny needles to achieve bodily harmony by stimulating certain points in the body’s energy system, light therapy uses focused, visible, red wavelengths in much the same way.
Red light has been shown to be naturally energizing and correlated with improved moods by increasing self-confidence, positivity, joyfulness, laughter, mindfulness, awareness, and sensory stimulation. While results vary from patient to patient, there’s a reason to believe that red light has mental and emotional perks in addition to physical benefits.
