What Is Red Light Therapy?
Research has shown that certain skin cells when engaged by a process of applied red light waves at precisely 633 nanometers can be encouraged to produce enzymes, elastin, and collagen that support the skin’s structure. Red light at 633nm is absorbed by the mitochondria of cells and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) for en- hanced cell vitality and permeability, increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers, production of new collagen, and improved oxygenation.
Initial Results (First 4 weeks):
Initially, you will notice fine lines start to diminish. Your skin will have a much smoother feeling to it, pigmentation will start to even out, and any blemishes or acne will start diminishing.
Long Term Results (4-12 weeks):
Over time, improved oxygenation and detoxification of the skin is achieved as the vascular walls of the skin’s small blood vessels are strengthened, followed by improved natural repair and creation of healthy skin. This will help re- store and firm up tired looking skin, decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks, diminish freckles, age spots, eliminate acne, even out pigmentation, minimize the size of facial pores, improve the appearance of sun weathered skin, and stimulate collagen synthesis. Overall, improving the skin’s underlying supportive structure and making you look and feel years younger!
Recommended Session Lengths:
Weeks 1-4: 15 minutes, 3-5 times a week Weeks 4-12: 15 minutes, 2-3 times a week Weeks 12+: 15 minutes, 1-2 times a week
Discontinuing the red light therapy typically results in the gradual loss of results over the course of time, as with nor- mal skin aging.
