How Do Red Light Therapy Machines Work?


Red Light Therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive procedure, that only treats the needed areas while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. Treatment can be performed at home and does not result in downtime whereas more invasive procedures such as IPL or laser resurfacing do. These approaches to skin renewal rely on high-powered coherent light to create heat energy which can result in thermal injury to tissues. LED's signal the body to naturally convert light energy into cell energy without causing undue damage or discomfort.

Specific wavelengths stimulate specific responses in the body. Red wavelengths and certain infrared (non-visible) wavelengths increase cellular activity at the dermal level by targeting underlying hemoglobin. Cellular activity and energy levels fall as we age. With the delivery of the correct wavelengths of LED light, these dermal cells receive a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost from the light energy. This safe, painless, natural healing process converts light energy within skin cells, very similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants.

The thermal (heat) activity generated by LED's enhances blood circulation, helping bring nutrients and cellular growth factors to the treated areas. Red and infrared light stimulate fibroblast and collagen production to strengthen sagging, wrinkled skin. These favorable cellular and metabolic effects can also remove age spots and dark pigmentation, repair broken capillaries, reduce inflammation, help to refine fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin soft, smoothed, refreshed and healthy looking. Photofacial therapy also promotes faster healing of inflammatory acne, rosacea and areas of redness, with less post surgical or post trauma scarring.

Red light therapy is safe for all skin types and ages, there is no down time or recovery time and it is quickly becoming known in the cosmetic industry as one of the most effective and non-invasive ways to help rejuvenate and repair the skin.
