Everyone wants to feel confident in their skin. From a more even tone and texture to minimizing the appearance of discolorations, we all have something that we’d like to change about our outer appearance.
Tired of over-the-counter topical products that don’t provide the results you want? One option you probably haven’t considered is red light therapy. There’s a growing amount of scientific evidence that has shown just how beneficial red light therapy is, especially for the skin.
Keep reading to learn about red light therapy and how you can use it to improve the appearance and health of your skin.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy uses red light-emitting diodes (LEDs). When directed towards the skin, the light causes a biochemical effect in the cells. This effect strengthens the mitochondria, which is where all the cell’s energy is created.
Using red light therapy increases mitochondrial function. In turn, cells create higher amounts of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP carries energy throughout the cells.
With more energy, cells are not only able to work more effectively, they have the energy needed to repair and rejuvenate more quickly.
Red Light Therapy Skin Benefits
There is a growing amount of evidence that shows just how effective red light therapy is in rejuvenating the skin while also offering anti-aging properties. Red light therapy is also beneficial for someone who is simply trying to improve their overall skin health. It's also worth noting that daily infrared sauna use is also a key strategy to improve the health of your skin.
The best part is that red light therapy is not only effective, but it’s safe and non-invasive. Today, the therapy is offered by dermatologists, salons, spas, beauty experts, and of course, Sun Home!
Here are some of the top benefits of red light therapy.
Tightens the Skin
Loose skin can occur for many reasons. For some it’s caused by aging while others have loose skin due to weight loss. Whatever the cause, red light therapy tightens the skin, leaving it firmer and more supple.
But how does red light therapy help tighten the skin? It’s all thanks to the light’s ability to promote collagen production. The therapy helps your skin heal from the inside out.
Increased cellular energy boosts collagen production. Collagen is a protein that makes up more than 80% of the skin. Red light therapy also increases elastin levels, which also plays a role in the skin's ability to stretch and bounce back.
To restore firmness and elasticity to your skin, healthy collage production is a must.
Wrinkles are an evitable part of aging, but that doesn't mean that they must be part of your reality. Red light therapy penetrates the skin, like natural sunlight, except instead of aging the skin, it can make it look more youthful. Once inside of the cells, red light increases energy as well as collagen production.
Collagen is what keeps the skin firm and supple. Using red light therapy for collagen production is a great way to prevent the common signs of aging. It can even be used to reverse existing fine lines and wrinkles!
Red light therapy also increases circulation, which is an important part ensuring oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the cells. When the skin has the oxygen and nutrients it needs, it looks and feels healthier.
According to a study conducted in 2014, red light therapy stimulates “increased tissue repair and healing.” The study also found that red light therapy has a positive effect on fine lines and wrinkles.
Helps With Common Skin Problems
Millions of people struggle with common skin problems, including rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and acne. Though there are many different topical treatments that can be used to minimize symptoms, red light therapy may be a more effective treatment alternative.
Because red light therapy penetrates below the skin's surface, it stimulates and improves cellular function. The cells produce more collagen, form new capillaries, and deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Red light therapy also stimulates the lymphatic system, which removes toxins and other harmful compounds from the body.
After just a few sessions, you should notice a huge improvement in your skin. You should see a decrease in:
- Bumps and lesions
- Swelling and tenderness
- Flare ups
No matter what type of skin problems you have, the benefits of red light therapy work to keep symptoms at bay.
Reduces Appearance of Scars
Scars can cause you to feel embarrassed and insecure. Scars can also be painful and may even restrict movement, depending on where they're located. Instead of wasting money on expensive creams or home remedies, try red light therapy instead.
Whether you have acne, surgical, pitted, or keloid scars, red light can help. Red light improves tissue repair and generation. It also boosts collagen and elastin production while improving the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells.
