The benefits of light exposure to the skin have been known for millennia, the healing and rejuvenating benefits of red light therapy are just surfacing. Red light therapy is a non-invasive method to help combat a variety of medical conditions painlessly while reducing inflammation and cell death.
Light’s therapeutic power starts by giving skin a healthy look and feel and extends to wound healing, reduced inflammation, wrinkle reduction, and treatment of medical conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo.
Red and near infrared light penetrates more deeply than other light waves allowing their benefits to extend into the dermis, affecting soft tissues, blood vessels and nerves. The skin care benefits of red light therapy are vast but can be summarized as promoting healing, reducing inflammation, rejuvenating skin and reducing cell death.
Other therapies such as laser treatments and acids intentionally damage the skin before encouraging new growth, whereas the unique approach offered by red and infrared light therapy bypasses those destructive steps and immediately stimulates regenerative processes. Red light therapy combats medical conditions, inflammation, aging, and more without pain.
