Red Light Therapy
Red + Infrared LED Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy, or Photobiomodulation, is an FDA-approved treatment originally discovered by NASA. Using specific wavelengths of light, we can stimulate the bottom layer of the skin’s dermis to boost the production of collagen and heal tissue.
Red Light Therapy is most commonly known in wellness for its anti–aging properties. Red Light causes the body to produce its own collagen at the dermal level reconstructing the skin and renewing it back to its younger state all on its own. It rehydrates the cell reducing inflammation naturally and improving healing time. It is like the fountain of youth is beaming down on you.
How does red + infrared light therapy work?
Red Light activated ATP stimulates white blood cells that work to repair damaged tissues, and increases collagen production that builds elasticity in the skin and can aid in wound healing. ATP also activates endorphins that provide soothing relief from chronic and acute pain.
Red Light has become the ‘Magic Pill’ for many who have experienced first hand the benefits of infrared and it continues to grow as more and more people discover these incredible benefits.
