Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation or low-level light therapy (LLLT), works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes at the cellular level. The process uses LEDs to emit concentrated red and near-infrared light to be absorbed through the bare skin. From there, light photons are absorbed in the tissues and stimulates energy-producing “organelles” known as mitochondria inside cells. This creates key health benefits to the body and has been very successful.
Red light therapy (RLT) is a pain-free procedure unlike other similar therapies such as laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies. Laser and IPL therapies are invasive treatments that induces cell damage to promote a healing or reparative effect. Red light therapy doesn’t use invasive, harmful radiation. Simply saying, you are in no danger of being exposed to harmful radiation because red light is in the visible light level.
The photosynthesis-boosting potential of red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were discovered as far back as the 1990’s by NASA. Most of us have heard of RLT, but until now, mostly celebrities and famous individuals were able to access this new light therapy. Today, we have both the Poly-Light and our total body red light bed.
For most applications, it’s recommended that treatment process be within two to three sessions per week, for 10 to 20 minutes over a three month period. Each individual is different and the number of sessions and time can vary. Results vary depending on the condition of treatments. In many cases, results can be expected as early as three weeks! RLT is not an overnight solution. It takes time and consistency to see improvement.
There are a variety of benefits with RLT. Below are the many we have discovered with this breakthrough treatment
As we grow older, our skin is damaged by many environmental factors as is internal factors. Things such as sunlight, pollution, poor nutrition and stress can affect the way one ages. Let’s not forget, genetics also plays a role. And while we would like to believe that top-shelf anti-aging moisturizer is going to do the trick, the truth is, it cannot treat your skin at the cellular level. Many of our clients using our POLY Light have discovered tighter more firm skin with ongoing treatment.
Skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, and even scarring have seen very positive results from using ongoing RLT. Red light therapy has been able to push many of these skin conditions into remission. With RLT a part of your daily self-care routine, you can keep these conditions from coming back. Oh, and did we tell you RLT helps with hair loss?!
As with other conditions, RLT treats the underlying cause of acute & chronic pain. From short-term acute pain like a back injury from picking up something too heavy, osteoarthritis pain. We are learning that those with degenerative joint disease are also finding relief by using ongoing red light therapy treatment.
RLT is very popular with athletes and fitness coaches. We are learning that red light therapy promotes faster recovery from exercise injury and also helps those avoid delayed-onset muscle soreness. In addition, red light therapy has help many lose weight. With a healthy diet and exercise, RLT has become a great addition a weight loss plan. Many have dropped inches by just adding RLT on an ongoing basis, but the fat-burning results vary from person to person.
One of the most exciting uses for RLT is treating disorders of the nervous system, such as diabetic neuropathy. With ongoing treatment, individuals are discovering relief as it improves damaged nerves to reconnect. And to take that a step further, RLT can assist those with affective disorders, seasonal depression, and simply improve mood!
