The Beauty and the Beam: the Magic of the Red Light Therapy.
While I was initially skeptical at the 8-minute treatment, after I started to calm my mind, I fell in love with it. From age spots, to dry skin and acne, it cures whatever ails you. Could sound like a magic potion from a princess but is just light therapy. Before you go with the “What the…?” face, it’s only a matter of time before it shows up in most of the celebrities’ social media.
Most of our users describe it as
“warm and relaxing, and allows you to go into a meditative state of mind.”
LED light therapy has an established history of skin uses. The U.S. Navy SEALs began using it in the 1990s to help heal wounds quickly and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues.
Since then, the treatment has been researched for different situations in aesthetics. It’s mainly noted for increasing collagen and tissues.
There are different frequencies, or wavelengths, used with LED light treatment. These include red and blue light frequencies, which don’t contain ultraviolet rays and are readily absorbed into the skin.
Different than daylight
Unlike ultraviolet rays from the sun which damage the DNA of skin cells, “light emitted in this spectrum is perfectly safe,” said Dr. Susan Bard, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City.
That means there’s no tanning or burning when you’re exposed to red light. Its effects happen deep inside at the cellular level. All living things need to make ATP cellular energy to function and survive, and nearly all living things rely on natural light to power this process in our cells every day. Red and near-infrared wavelengths of natural light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells, the powerhouses responsible for taking light, oxygen, and the food we eat — and turning it into usable energy for our bodies through the process of cellular respiration.
Uses of red light
Red light therapy has been used to treat or improve the following:
- tissue regeneration
- autoimmune diseases
- brain disorders
- athletic performance
- cancer therapy side effects
“The number of conditions red light can treat is ‘continuously expanding”
said Michael R. Hamblin, PhD, a principal investigator at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School.
The short version
Light therapy delivers safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light to your skin and cells, with no chemicals, UV rays, or excess heat. These red and near-infrared wavelengths of light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells similar to natural sunlight, reducing oxidative stress, and increasing circulation, so your body is able to make more core energy to power itself.
