Red Light Therapy & Skincare
Red light therapy has been drawing a lot of attention in the world of non-invasive anti-ageing treatment. Instead of undergoing radical methods in correcting and delaying signs of aging, scientists discovered that red light can promote healing and is effective in providing results for various skin concerns, risk-free and naturally.
What is Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses red, low-level wavelengths of light. It produces a biochemical effect that boosts the amount of energy stored in cells. This assists cells to function more efficiently and repair damage – many people use Red Light Therapy to treat scars and wounds until it became known for its efficacy in combating wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, discoloration, and acne.
The results of Red Light Therapy have shown increased levels of hydration, boost in collagen production and improved skin complexion with increased cellular activity
What are the benefits of Red Light Therapy for the skin
People are often unhappy with the appearance of their skin and try to ‘cover’ their skin with cosmetic products or use harsh treatments that have serious side effects. Red Light Therapy has proven to be a non-invasive treatment that increases blood flow to the skin.
• Increased the collagen production – Increase hydration levels in the skin, decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Rapid wound healing - reduced acne, inhibiting scar tissue in the skin, reducing sunburn
• Improves skin conditions such as Rosacea, Eczema, and Psoriasis
• Improved texture and complexion of the skin
• Reverse Hair Loss
This means that even if you're a very healthy 20-year-old woman, red light therapy can improve your beauty without the associated downsides that many commercial cosmetics have. Be it unhealthy skin or a targeted skin concern, the moisture and collagen formation that red light therapy treatment provides, will surprise you in positive ways. The bonus is that you can use Red Light Therapy with the pHformula skin resurfacing homecare and treatments – let’s learn more about how it works.
How does Red Light Therapy work
Red Light Therapy is a treatment that is powered with 120 light bulbs of different spectrum of red lights ranging from amber, yellow, red and infrared. The different hues of light penetrate the skin in different levels to maximise the benefits and healing properties of the red light spectrum.
As the red light penetrates the skin, the natural healing properties of your body are activated at a cellular level. The light stimulates blood circulation, which increases the functioning of the lymphatic system. The activity in the lymphatic system assists to transport white blood cells to areas where the body needs it the most. It is here that the body’s metabolic processes spur the creation of collagen and fibroblasts, and increases cellular clean-up to reduce inflammation.
