Red Light Therapy Before After

WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?

Red light therapy is a popular therapeutic technique that uses red, low-level (non-invasive) wavelengths of light.  When our skin is exposed to red light, it produces a biochemical effect that boosts the energy stored in skin cells and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently and eventually help you restore younger wrinkles-free skin.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RED LIGHT THERAPY?

Reduce signs of aging:

Many of the most popular benefits of red light therapy involve treating signs of aging. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of:

  •       Wrinkles
  •       Dark spots
  •       Crow’s feet

Improve acne:

Another common application of red light therapy is as a supplemental treatment for acne. Red light therapy helps to soothe and calm skin cells, reduce inflammation, and balance oil production on the skin.  

Improve hair loss:

Red light therapy is also widely used as a non-invasive and clinically proven treatment to reawaken your scalp. It delivers nourishing laser light energy directly to your hair follicles to help reduce hair loss while helping naturally grow stronger, thicker, and shinier hair.

Increase wound healing process:

Red light therapy promotes tissue repair through increased fibroblast and collagen production, which helps to reduce inflammation and increase the wound healing process. Additionally, red light therapy has been shown to reduce and even repair scar tissue as it helps boost blood circulation and brings more oxygen to the area.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Red light therapy is considered safe and non-invasive, so no recovery time is required. You should be able to see an instant glow in your face after the treatment, however, it will not correct the wrinkles and fine lines overnight. Collagen production will take time and you should begin to see visible improvements with regular treatments after 4-8 weeks. It means the red light therapy needs consistent care, please be patient, your body is doing its work to reverse the hands of time.😊  

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR FIRST RED LIGHT THERAPY TREATMENT

-        People who are sensitive to light may not be suitable for red light therapy. Before having your treatment, we recommend starting with a patch test on your forearm to identify any sensitivity before using it regularly.

-        If you are currently using products derived from vitamin A which increases your skin’s sensitivity to light, please consult your dermatologist before having treatment.

THE COST : PROFESSIONAL VS. AT-HOME

If you are receiving a professional red light therapy treatment, the cost of a single session could range anywhere from $25 facial add-on to $150 for individual treatment, depending on your area of the country. Remember, many aestheticians recommend a minimum of 10 sessions to receive optimal results, so we should factor that total cost into our budget.  

Home devices, on the other hand, are much more cost-efficient. You can easily DIY your treatment at home and experience a more customized facial routine. The results per at-home treatment may not be as dramatic as professional treatment, however, consistency is the key, you’ll glow forth with healthier, bouncier, and clearer skin with adequate time spent under the light for continuous periods of several weeks.
