Red Light Therapy

CollagenForces such as aging, sun exposure, chemicals and toxin causes collagen production to diminish, which is the culprit of tired and older looking skin. One of the latest trends in skin enhancement treatments, Red Light Therapy, was actually developed by NASA. Okay, so it was initially used to grow plants in space, but eventually, NASA used the technology to treat wounds and burns, too. Today, skin care professionals use Red Light Therapy as an anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Visible and relaxing red lights are used to seep through the layers of your skin in wavelengths between 630-660 nanometers. Red light therapy stimulates fibroblasts, which are responsible for creating collagen, resulting in diminished furrows, creases, fine lines and crow’s feet. It also boosts blood circulation in targeted areas to reduce pore size, refine skin texture and heal and revive the skin, and the treatment has been proven to fade blemishes caused by aging, scars and hyper pigmentation.

What you can expect

Red Light Therapy gradually repairs skin damage over time, so it’s not a quick fix. The number of sessions depends on your age, what you are trying to repair and your skin type, but you will need at least 4-5 sessions. Follow-up visits are vital. Your body will be stimulated by the light waves to heal itself, so the results are not instantaneous and will last up to 90 days. This treatment gives you the opportunity to revive your skin without the risks related to surgical procedures. It’s positively safe, painless, non-invasive and therapeutic.

It might be hard to imagine vibrant skin simply by relaxing in the glow of red lights, but if you struggle with wrinkles and have lost an energetic bounce in your skin, then Red Light Therapy encourages the collagen and elastin production that your skin needs to look healthy and youthful.
