While the world has been turned upside down, there’s one thing that’s been growing steadily with popularity: light therapy products. Perhaps you’ve tried out an infrared sauna or had an LED facial before, but haven’t dabbled in red light therapy products because of the assumed barrier to entry.
Whether it’s a light therapy face mask or a light therapy panel, these products are designed to emit red and infrared light to penetrate deeply into the skin and heal the body from the inside out. And this is why big brands are prioritizing light therapy products - they do what your skin serums and creams, and even more invasive and pharmaceutical products cannot.
Red light therapy devices are able to focus on specific parts of the body, like the face, or provide full-body healing as they treat inflammation, hair loss, arthritis, wrinkles, joint pain, wounds, and much more. Red light therapy can address root problems rather than just the symptoms, by treating conditions from the inside out.
While the global light therapy market was valued at $874 million last year, it’s expected to increase at least 5% more by 2027. The light therapy market is gaining in popularity for mental health treatment and many other physical ailments. However, the skincare industry is jumping on the opportunity to finally give customers the perfect skin they’ve been hoping for.
Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro has gained huge recognition as 97% of users of the mask participated in a clinical study saying that it showed overall improvement in acne after 2 weeks and overall improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and acne after 10 weeks.
While most topical anti-aging products like creams and serums take a significant amount of time to show results, red light therapy research shows incredible results within the first couple of weeks of treatment. In addition, red light therapy products are proving to maintain long-term results without invasive and harmful procedures. Therefore, it’s a popular form of anti-aging therapy for those looking to increase collagen production and reduce fine lines and wrinkles - fast.
Consumers are looking for natural health, wellness, and anti-aging solutions without the hefty short- and long-term side effects. Another reason for red light therapy’s increasing popularity is due to its healing properties and low-cost technology. One device has the power to deliver the right amount of red and infrared light to penetrate through the body’s tissues and heal from the inside out. The technological advances in the industry improved safety and made it an affordable treatment. In addition, red light therapy treatments can be received from the comfort of one’s home, lasting an average of 10 minutes per treatment.
Celebrities are also jumping on this beauty trend, with stars like Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian using red light therapy masks as a part of their skincare routine. Kourtney Kardashian regularly uses red and blue light, with red light treating stimulating collagen production and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, while blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria and decreases scarring.
For the first time, there’s a non-invasive, powerful skincare product on the market - and it actually works. These treatments not only produce results, but do so without investing hours per day and thousands of dollars. It’s quick, efficient, and provides long-term results.
