Red Light Therapy: A Rejuvenating Gadget that Really Works Is Red Light Therapy really the holy grail of age-defying and pain healing. Used by NASA, it’s becoming the go to for many. BY LOUISA GRAVES
Red Light Therapy has been used by NASA and clinical trials have proven the benefits.
“ The combination of red and infrared LED’s and the wavelengths of the lights are the key to its rejuvenating and pain management effects.”
So often a new beauty gadget comes along that makes bold statements, but is nothing more than the subject of a slick infomercial. Red Light Therapy is not that. In fact, Red Light Therapy is a technology developed by NASA for plant growth on shuttle missions when it was discovered there are many more benefits. It is a highly effective age-proofing device that's non-invasive and can be performed in the privacy of your own home. Many beauty professionals and doctors use these actual devices. The results you will achieve are outstanding.
Red Light Therapy – For Skin Rejuvenation & Pain Management
The skin rejuvenation and pain-relieving benefits of Red Light Therapy has been clinically proven and documented for decades. It is now being recognized as a proven, age-defying device by many famous TV doctors, including Dr. Oz, dermatologist Dr. Eva Shamban, Dr. Ordon and many others.
Red Light Therapy is used on the face, neck, hands, arms and body and is scientifically proven to be one of the most non-invasive, economical and effective methods of rejuvenating and plumping wrinkles and fine lines, refining pores, fading age-spots, reducing inflammation, and much more. Red Light Therapy can also be used on the body to reduce pain, speed heal wounds, incisions, burns, sprains, pulled muscles and even help broken bones mend faster and better.
How does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red and infrared diodes emit wavelengths of light that enhance the body’s ability to repair tissue and damaged cells. This light also stimulates collagen production resulting in plumper, more youthful-looking skin. In just 10 weeks, wrinkles smooth, pores become more refined, age spots fade and much more. The combination of red and infrared LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) and the wavelengths of the lights are the key to its rejuvenating and pain management effects.
For Rejuvenation: The combination of both red and infrared diodes emit specific wavelengths of light that penetrate deep down to the dermis, increasing blood flow to the skin and stimulating the production of collagen to repair damaged cells, refine and smooth wrinkles, plump sagging skin, reduce inflammation and redness, dark spots, enlarged pores and more.
For Pain Management and Reducing Inflammation: The combination of red and infrared diodes of Red Light Therapy are also scientifically proven to reduce pain and inflammation in the muscles, back, knees, hands, shoulders, hips and more. Red Light Therapy can relieve painful arthritis, fibromyalgia, and aching joints, help speed heal torn muscles, ligaments, sprains, burns, wounds and post-surgical incisions faster and better. Lay the panels on wrists to address carpal tunnel syndrome. To stimulate collagen and reduce the look of cellulite, lay the panels on thighs and tummy or strap them around the arms. When applied to the tops of hands, Red Light Therapy can relieve painful arthritis and rejuvenate hands by fading age spots.
How to Choose an Effective Red Light Therapy Device
An effective Red Light Therapy device must combine both red and infrared LEDs. For maximum results, the red LEDs should emit wavelengths that are 660 nanometers and the infrareds should emit wavelengths at 880 nanometers. These are the exact specifications used by NASA when they discovered that Red Light Therapy not only rejuvenates, smoothes and plumps wrinkled skin, it even helped heal diabetic wounds very quickly.
The Holy Grail of Red Light Therapy Units: The size of the Red Light Therapy device should also be a factor when choosing a system. This is why I don’t recommend handheld units any longer. They are too small, therefore, take far more time to complete a treatment and many on the market do not offer the correct wavelengths of light. I suggest a larger 2-panel system (9” by 7” panels), which will cover the entire face, and complete the treatment in far less time. In addition, the high number and combination of 174 red and infrared LED light diodes offer the proven 660-880 nanometer wavelengths—the same specs as used by NASA. This unit can be used at home or in a professional office, both providing the results you want.
