To this day I’m still amazed by the incredible (and proven!) benefits and uses of red light therapy
A 100% natural, painless technology you can use at home whenever you need it.
When I purchased my first red light therapy home device, it was only to fight new wrinkles, lines, and skin sagging that was bothering me.
But since then, I’ve discovered so many more jaw-dropping uses for red light therapy that I only wish I knew about years before.
What Is the Red Light Therapy?
Red light rays are part of the sun’s light spectrum. Red light rays are visible, while infrared rays are invisible and felt as heat.
Red light therapy uses wavelengths of light between 620 nm and 800 nm.
Regardless of claims of only “specific wavelengths” being effective. The whole range of visible red light wavelengths is effective and beneficial. Many devices today are including two or three of them instead of one.
Red light therapy is a natural, alternative therapy with a long list of benefits and uses and no known adverse side effects were in the last 14 years.
Below you’ll discover how you can use a simple red light therapy home device. And how to make you look younger, heal your skin, relieve your pain and even detox your entire body.
The Proven Benefits of Red & Infrared Light
Since NASA’s “accidental” discovery about the wound-healing abilities of red light therapy. Many studies emerged, proving the awesome benefits of red light therapy, including:
- Faster and Better Collagen Production
Red light rays proved to boost collagen production – Responsible for the elasticity, firmness, and fullness of your skin.
More than a few studies have proven that red light therapy reduces wrinkles and fine lines, evens and tones your skin and makes it firmer.
- Increased Blood Circulation and the formation of new capillaries
This has a powerful effect on both skin problems and pain relief!
It can bring an immediate healthy glow to the skin and the circulation boosts the healing of muscle and nerve pain.
- Increases lymph activity
Boosting lymph activity can reduce swelling and puffiness.
- Promotes the release of ATP
This provides energy to the cells to make the most of the added blood flow with oxygen and nutrients. This allows for better detoxification and cell repair.
Some Incredible Uses for Red Light Therapy at Home
Here are the many versatile uses for your home red light therapy device (or infrared heat pad):
Red Light Therapy for the Skin
- Acne and Acne Scars
Red light therapy proves to reduce facial redness, caused by acne blemishes and Rosacea.
One of the best benefits of red light therapy is wound healing and reducing inflammation. Which makes it an effective natural method to reduce acne scars
(For this purpose, a high-quality handheld device will be enough.)
- Anti-Aging and Wrinkle Reduction
If you feel that the crow feet near your eyes and the fine lines on your forehead don’t seem to vanish even after prolonged use of the newest anti-aging cream. You should consider showing your wrinkles the red light, literally!
Red light skin therapy proves to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by promoting collagen and fibroblasts production.
The result is clearer, brighter, and firmer skin, while in the long-term the skin is able to revitalize its texture, tone, and natural glow.
For wrinkles and anti-aging, I would recommend the Popular DPL Light Therapy Device.
- Eczema & Psoriasis
The anti-inflammation properties of low-level laser therapy make it beneficial for reducing the appearance of Eczema and Psoriasis.
- Athlete’s Foot
- Stretch Marks
Though red light rays can’t drop stretch marks completely. They are capable of eliminating the skin redness around them when they first appear.
- Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation
Red light therapy can even your skin and repair sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
- Herpes & Cold sores
Infra-red light therapy – three minutes, twice a day for three days, has proved to drop a cold sore.
The wavelength improves the cells’ ability to withstand the virus and prevents damage to the DNA of the affected cells.
- Wound Healing
Many studies have shown that Red light rays can heal a wound 200% faster. This is especially important for diabetics. Red light therapy can close even a chronic wound.
Depending on a few factors, it can take about 4-8 weeks of consistent treatment to close a non-healing wound, without any side effects.
But think of the small cuts, scrapes, bruises, insect bites, or burns you might encounter on any given summer day. The faster you can close an open wound the less chance you have of a potential infection.
Some more uses for red light skin therapy
- Dermal Ulcers
- Oral Lesions
- Surgical Wounds
- Pressure ulcers
- Oral Mucositis
Red Light Therapy for Pain
The proven ability of infrared light therapy to relieve pain (no matter the cause!) is stunning.
Having your own infrared light therapy device at home can replace your use for pain killers – No matter if it’s muscle pain, nerve pain, or joint pain.
Infrared light proves to reduce inflammation, and block pain caused by nerve problems.
Low-level laser therapy causes the smaller arteries and lymph vessels in your body to increase in size (vasodilation). This allows for natural clearing of inflammation, swelling, and edema to be cleared away from the injury site.
- The benefits seem to be cumulative
It may take several treatments (treatment is about 30 minutes, no recovery time) with the best-infrared home device for the results to become evident.
Notice that if you need red light therapy for pain. I would suggest getting an infrared heating pad. Instead of a handheld device, which won’t cover a big area like your back or legs.
