What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy harnesses the power of specific wavelengths of light to penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating cellular regeneration and enhancing collagen production. This non-invasive treatment has been shown to improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote overall skin health.1 In addition to rejuvenating the skin, red light therapy can have wide-ranging effects on overall health, including reducing inflammation, repairing damaged muscles, promoting wound healing, and increasing blood flow.

How Red Light Therapy Works

During a red light therapy session, targeted wavelengths of light are emitted from specialized LED panels and absorbed by the skin’s cells. This stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy source for cellular processes, leading to increased collagen and elastin production, improved blood circulation, and faster tissue repair.

Preparing for Red Light Therapy

Preparing for a red light therapy session is simple. Just ensure you are well-hydrated and your skin is clean and free of makeup or skincare products. You’ll relax in a comfortable reclined position during the treatment while the gentle red light works its magic beneath your skin.

The Red Light Therapy Session

A red light therapy session typically lasts around 8-15 minutes, during which you’ll experience a warm, soothing sensation on your skin. Many patients find the experience relaxing and rejuvenating, often comparing it to basking in the warmth of natural sunlight. We recommend that our patients come in for red light therapy treatments 2-3 times a week for optimal results.
