Red light is completely safe for the eyes. Red light penetrates tissue to a depth of 8 – 10 mm, delivering energy to stimulate a response from the body to heal itself.
Red Light therapy enchances cell vitality and permeability, increased production of new collagen, and increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibres. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150 – 200 percent faster when exposed to certain light wavelengths, and research has shown red light delivers powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue.
No. These wavelengths are safe for humans, and the specific treatment wavelengths have been shown to actually “mend” the cellular damage done by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
Red light therapy does not cut, burn, or break the skin as with laser treatments. Lasers use heat and concentrated light to vaporize or remove tissue. Red light lamps produce no vaporization or burning of tissue, and therefore no inflammation or erythema. Red light therapy is one of the few non-invasive tools available that can reverse the appearance of aging skin, such as wrinkles and mottled skin tone.
There are few immediate changes to skin, as change occurs naturally over a period of weeks. Everyone reacts differently, depending on their age and the condition of their skin. In general, best results are achieved over an 8 – 12 week period.
Yes. Maintenance treatments are important in order to maintain your visible results. Usually a once a month treatment is recommended, unless otherwise determined by your skin care specialist.
Red light treatment helps remove the bacteria that causes acne, and generates cellular activity that deals with age spots and sun damage. Anti-aging red light therapy brightens skin and reduces the formation of pigmentation marks.
