Light is essential for your health and cellular function. The human body requires natural sunlight, but most people don’t get enough of it. That’s where our Red Light Therapy services come into play.
Red light therapy (RLT) uses a specific range of wavelengths to increase circulation and help heal the skin. Smartphones, tablets, and other device screens emit blue light that is known for damaging skin cells, causing premature wrinkles and loss of firmness.
RLT can help reduce damage to your skin caused by long-term device usage or various skin conditions.
What is Light Therapy?
Light therapy uses light energy to heal and naturally stimulate the cells. The energy helps the cells regenerate faster and produce more natural energy.
It also helps the body produce more ATP to stimulate cell growth for healthier function and enhances cell signaling. The wavelengths from the treatment create a better environment for the skin cells to synthesize and bridge pathways that may have broken down and caused a flare-up in your condition.
Red light is absorbed into the cells through the mitochondria to produce more energy. This helps the cells work more efficiently to repair skin damage, boost cell growth, and enhance rejuvenation.
The specific health benefits depend on why you’re receiving therapy, but the treatment is known for offering these results to people who use RLT:
- Stimulates collagen production to increase skin elasticity and improve its strength
- Increase fibroblast production, which produces collagen
- Increases blood circulation in the tissues
- Reduces cell inflammation
Red light therapy uses a low wavelength of red light to improve the skin’s appearance and treat conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and alopecia.
You can enjoy some of these health benefits associated with RLT without worrying about a reaction commonly produced by alternative treatment methods:
- Shrinks age spots, acne scars, and wrinkles
- Reduces stretch marks
- Stimulates collagen and elastin production
- Speeds muscle recovery
- Reduces joint pain and inflammation
- Speeds injury and wound healing process
- Increases natural melatonin production for better sleep
- Improves hair growth in those with alopecia
- Improves psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea

Red light therapy is non-toxic, non-invasive, and isn’t as harsh as some topical skin treatments. RLT doesn’t use the same type of light found in UV rays from the sun or tanning beds. This treatment is found to be safe and without side effects.
With any medical procedure, visit a dermatologist or qualified cosmetic therapist to guarantee this treatment is beneficial to you.
