Red light therapy is an extremely effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions with a great deal of science backing it. Once only used by NASA, the US Navy, doctors, and dermatologists it’s now available in spas, chiropractor’s offices, as well as in the home.

Specific wavelengths have the unique ability to penetrate deep into skin and tissue. As the light permeates the cells it fires up numerous reactions such as increasing collagen and elastin production, boosting cellular energy, igniting reparative and healing properties, increasing the production of endorphins, reducing inflammation, and increasing circulation. Whew! That’s a lot of positive reactions going on inside the body. As these responses are set in motion, a number of impressive benefits fall into place creating vast improvements. Whether it improves your skin or finally offers serious pain relief this therapy changes, enhances, and improves lives.

Red Light Therapy for Skin Rejuvenation and Skin Conditions

When combined with infrared, yellow, or amber wavelengths this therapy offers remarkable benefits to the skin. These wavelengths easily penetrate into the many layers of the skin where they promote healing, repair, collagen and elastin synthesis, and better circulation which drives more oxygen to the surface of the skin.

This therapy has been shown to improve the following issues:

Premature aging
Wrinkles and fine lines
Age spots
Pore size
Texture of the skin
Tone of the skin

It’s a non-invasive, drug-free, pain-free alternative to treating the skin and encouraging a more youthful and healthy complexion.

Red Light Therapy for Pain Relief

Red and infrared LEDs (light emitting diodes) are able to relieve pain and accelerate healing easily and comfortably. Wavelengths ranging from 660 nanometers (red) to 880+ nanometers (infrared) penetrate into skin, tissue, joints, and bones where they gently ease pain and promote healing. These powerful LEDs increase circulation, increase the production of endorphins, block pain transmitting chemicals, and reduce inflammation.

The combination of red and infrared light therapy helps with the following conditions:

Lower back pain
Tennis elbow
Golfer’s elbow
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Plantar fasciitis
Muscle pain
Ligament tears
Tendon problems
Sports injuries

Treating your conditions will help to gently ease the pain, inflammation, and tenderness. It feels warm and soothing as the LEDs permeate and get to work on improving your condition and getting you back to enjoying life.

With technological advancements you can now do this therapy at home and expect results that are comparable to those you would receive in a professional setting. The convenience of doing it at home helps you to be more consistent with treatments which yield much more successful results in the long run.
