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.
"Over the past couple of months, I have been receiving red light treatments 3-4x a week and have already seen improvements physically, mentally, and emotionally. Typically, around this time of year (end of January) I get major seasonal depression, and I'm happy to say that I haven't had any signs of it so far. My skin has also cleared up, especially on my face and back. I have also found myself less stressed and calmer at home and work. Looking forward to continuing my red light therapy sessions :)"
"I'm a professional combat sports athlete, and avid gym rat. Between both activities, I find myself getting hurt fairly frequently, especially as I get older. Normally I just rest or heat the injury, throw on some ointment and keep moving through it. That was until I hurt myself bad enough that I couldn't ignore it any longer. At this point I was referred to Jean and her Red light therapy studio. I came in very skeptical (I typically am of alternative medicine) but I decided to give it a try anyways. Not only was Jean incredibly kind and welcoming but after 3 sessions my injury is already almost completely healed. I look forward to the sessions I have left which will heal me completely. Moving forward this will definitely be a part of my body care and healing process for my given activities."
"I admit I was not exactly sure what to expect. But about 5 minutes into my 14-minute session, I could feel my neck, shoulders, and lower back starting to make me want to fix my posture. It was an interesting experience and bit by bit, after the five-minute mark, I could feel a difference. I left feeling amazing. That is when you realize how bad you were feeling before!"
