What kind of light is red light?
Red or near-infrared light is known as photobiomodulation, low-level laser therapy, and other terms. Because it is different from UV light, it doesn’t produce heat, irritate the skin, or cause pain or burning to your skin. When you use red light or near-infrared therapy, your cells get exposed to low levels of laser or LED-generated light penetrating the skin and muscles.
Unlike other types of light, red light has longer wavelengths. That’s important because your body can absorb it deeper and penetrate muscle, tissue, organs, and even bone! 1.2 inches or 3 centimeters of depth can help provide help with muscle aches, chronic pain, and inflammation that usually would interfere with the way your cells should function within your body.
What does it do to my body?
Almost all of the cells in your body have mitochondria. These little “powerhouses” in your body produce the energy to repair and heal your cells. And when the red light stimulates them, it can help them do their jobs more efficiently within your body.
When specific cells absorb the light wavelengths and become stimulated, they can help enhance skin rejuvenation, boost new cell growth, and even repair your skin from within. And because it stimulates your own cells to help your body repair itself, this natural remedy is gaining popularity with each passing day.
Some benefits of Red Light Therapy are:
- Natural collagen production to increase the skin’s firmness and reduce wrinkles, blemishes, and scars, including acne
- Stimulation leads to increased endorphins, which naturally relieve pain within your body
- Bone growth and repair
- Accelerated muscle recovery and healing
- Recovery from or a reduction of symptoms related to traumatic brain injury
Who can benefit from using Red Light Therapy?
The short answer? Anyone!
Even if you have sensitive skin, Red Light Therapy can aid with anti-aging, different skin conditions, and thinning hair. Red Light Therapy can help with their recovery at a cellular level if someone has suffered a stroke or a traumatic brain injury.
Those individuals who struggle with mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression, can see improvements in their well-being. Suppose you’re experiencing chronic pain, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. In that case, Red Light Therapy can help with its anti-inflammatory quality and relieve that pain along with the pain that comes with other degenerative joint issues.
With so many ways to regain the functioning of cells whose natural functions have slowed or come to a halt, Red Light Therapy is worth trying.
