Red Light Therapy

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy Image: What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy is a proven method of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, backed by numerous research and clinical studies. In aesthetic applications, red light is often emitted through LEDs (light emitting diodes) which produce light energy with very little heat, providing a non-invasive, comfortable experience for the client. It is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to naturally reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve their overall appearance. Optimal red light therapy results are achieved with regular use, with the most noticeable reduction of fine lines and wrinkles occurring at 6-8 weeks of treatment.

Origin of Red Light Therapy 

In an effort to find a solution for growing plants and feeding astronauts in space, NASA enlisted the expertise of plant biologists, who in seeking the answers looked to LED lights. Once LEDs proved to be successful in plant growth, NASA investigated the use of LED therapy in tissue healing and found positive results, also.  This research fueled the development of innovative and powerful LEDs that are now used in a variety of aesthetic applications.

How Does Red Light Therapy Work?

Each color of light naturally possesses a different wavelength that penetrates the skin at a specific depth. Light in the color wavelengths of red, amber and infrared light can penetrate the dermal layer, which is the layer responsible for collagen and elastin production. Similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, light can trigger natural, intracellular reactions within our skin layers. Skin damage that results in fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of our skin also occurs in the dermal layer, therefore red light therapy is a very effective treatment for addressing those concerns. Learn more about our NuFACE Trinity Wrinkle Reducer which uses red light therapy.
