Red Light Therapy 4U
Frequently Asked Questions
IS RED LIGHT SAFE?
There are a number of clinical studies that demonstrate the safety findings of red light therapy. These studies on red light therapy continue to indicate an absence of adverse effects while helping users enjoy the many benefits of red and near infrared light energy.
DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
Yes, it does. Red light therapy is actually a true science with decades of research behind it.
WHAT DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY DO?
Also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and photobiomodulation (PBM), red light therapy stimulates the cells by exposing the body to red and near-infrared (NIR) light. People who receive red light therapy typically stand, sit or lie down in front of panels equipped with light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs. This non-invasive treatment is safe and effective.
Thousands of studies and scientific reviews have been conducted to investigate the physiological effects of red light therapy. The main areas of therapeutic benefit include skin health, collagen production, repair and recovery of muscles, stress and anxiety, hair growth, sleep and relief from symptoms of illnesses that stem from some type of inflammatory response.
HOW DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
Red/infrared LED lights use ranges of wavelengths that penetrate the outer layer of the skin, providing the cells with usable energy.
WHAT ELSE DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY BENEFIT?
Beyond skincare and muscle repair, the stimulation of mitochondria through red light therapy yields a myriad of other positive results, including those that address pressing health issues.
DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY HELP TREAT WOUNDS?
Using red light therapy is an effective approach to wound healing since it can successfully fade skin discoloration in a relatively short period of time. This has been shown in research by the way skin affected by rosacea, sun damage, and scars respond to treatment with red light. When tissue absorbs red light, this creates oxygen and nutrients that enhance wound healing.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR RED LIGHT THERAPY TO WORK?
It is not an immediate miracle transformation that will occur overnight, but it will provide you with ongoing improvements that you will begin to see in anywhere from 24 hours to 2 months. Time varies depending on each client.
DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK THROUGH CLOTHES, BANDAGES OR DRESSINGS?
No. The good thing about red light is that you can see it. Shine the light at your clothes and see if it comes out the other side. The color will be absorbed by the fabric. Only red light that you can see reaching your skin can be absorbed by your skin.
DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK FOR EVERYBODY?
Yes, it should. Red light therapy will work for the minimization of scarring, inflammation, fine lines, and several other skin conditions.
CAN I STILL USE MY REGULAR SKIN CARE PRODUCTS WHILE I’M USING RED LIGHT THERAPY?
Absolutely. If you are happy with the skin care products that you are currently using, then there is no reason to change them.
