Red Light Therapy
We all know that sunlight is bad for our skin, but did you know there is good light too? UV free red light therapy can produce dramatic results in the health and appearance of your skin after just a few treatments.
Sunlight damages our skin because of ultraviolet rays. This is light which occurs beyond the end of the visible spectrum. It reaches deep in to our skin and causes damage, which not only ages our skin but can eventually result in cancer. Red Light Therapy also sends light rays deep in to our skin, but from the opposite end of the light spectrum, the infrared wavelength. Infrared rays are beneficial and can stimulate circulation, boost collagen and elastin production and enhance our skin’s natural ability to heal and renew. In addition, red light therapy causes your cells to produce more ATP. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the fuel supply for our cells. This means more active cellular activity, which is why red light therapy can speed healing and cell regeneration. The result is a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, fewer imperfections and moister, more youthful skin.
A red light facial treatment is relaxing, completely non-invasive and beneficial for anyone seeking healthier skin. Those suffering from acne may find these treatments especially beneficial, as the heat from the treatment warms the skin, causing a flushing of the sebaceous glands, the oils from which are the cause of acne. This, combined with the benefits of the red light therapy itself, can result in less acne and less likelihood of developing acne scarring.
As a final added benefit, some patients experience a mood lift with these treatments, especially during the winter months when there is less sunlight.
