Red LED Therapy Terminology :
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a form of medicine that applies low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the surface of the body.
Red Light Therapy History :
Red light LEDs were used by NASA to grow lights for plants in space in the 1990s. The LEDs were ten times brighter than the sun, so they sped up plant cell metabolism and photosynthesis. In the late 1990s, NASA tried red LEDs on human skin. Wounds heal slowly in space, and that’s a big problem for astronauts.
Sure, enough NASA scientists discovered that red light helped human cells grow faster. Led light was tested as a treatment for damaged and irritated skin caused by acne, rosacea, psoriasis, age spots, wrinkles, and even cancer.
What does red light therapy do?
NASA, scientists, and dermatologists find that red light therapy works. Red light therapy speeds up the healing of wounds. It penetrates deeper into the skin than other visible colors of light. The skin cells absorb the red light, and it makes them grow a lot faster—like up to 200% faster! Led light penetration stimulates collagen and elastin production, and it makes our skin look and feel younger, form more quickly. Skin regenerates rapidly with red light treatment. Red light therapy can help clear up eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and other skin problems. Red light therapy truly is a holistic healing approach.
Are there side effects with red light therapy?
Some users have complained that their acne flared up right after they began light therapy; it is an expected occurrence. The best bet is to continue treatment since it will accelerate the healing process.
How does red light therapy work?
Red light LEDs are usually combined with infrared and amber light LEDs in a device made for treating the skin. Infrared isn’t visible to the human eye. Red, amber, and infrared light waves are longer than other colors and penetrate deeper into the skin. Red, amber, light reaches about 1/3 of an inch deep, and infrared goes about an inch down into the tissue. Infrared light penetrates through the epidermis and into the dermis to reach the collagen fibers.
These lights stimulate skin cells to grow faster; skin rejuvenates, looking younger, and feeling softer to the touch after treatment. Collagen and elastin production speeds up, so your skin fills out and feels more elastic and firmer. Redness and swelling decrease because your skin circulates more blood.
Can red light therapy cure acne?
Red light therapy is often used together with blue light therapy to treat acne. Blue light kills acne bacteria, and red light helps the skin heal. For best results against acne, combine the two types of treatment.
