Red Light Therapy Q & A

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy (LLLT) offers a dual wavelength of infrared and red light that your skin absorbs. This red laser light is of a longer wavelength than visible light, but it’s contained in sunlight. In fact, red laser light makes up 70% of the light from the sun that heats the earth with the other 30% being visible light.

The energy heats your skin and stimulates a cellular response that includes increased production of collagen, a skin-strengthening compound, and ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a cellular energy source. The accelerated production of ATP increases your metabolism, facilitating weight loss.

The light-emitting diodes (LEDs) used are concentrated sources of light that produce therapeutic wavelengths that don’t cause damage to your skin.

What types of conditions benefit from Red Light Therapy?

A variety of health issues that show up close to the surface of the skin respond well to Red Light Therapy. These include:

  • Stretch marks
  • Scarring

What are the benefits of Red Light Therapy?
