Light therapy is a groundbreaking technology used by dermatologists to support the skin’s natural healing processes
Red light therapy (RLT) aims to solve skin issues by using low wavelength red light. Many experts believe that it can help with issues such as skin conditions, scarring and signs of aging — including wrinkles and age spots.
Red light therapy is a popular treatment offered in dermatologic clinics to reverse signs of skin aging. Red Light therapy helps excite the cells at different levels to help stimulate blood circulation and production of collagen and elastin. It also helps lessen redness, repair damaged cells and speed up healing of inflamed skin.
Turn back the hands of time and look ageless and glowing
As we age, we produce less collagen and elastin. Other factors such as too much sun exposure can also contribute to premature skin aging. These results in fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, skin discoloration or uneven skin tone.
In just 10 to 15 minutes, a minimum of 3 days per week, you are stimulating your skin cells to repair themselves and correct the damage from the inside out.

10-15 Minute Treatment Times:
10-minute treatment is optimal. 15-20 minutes for symptomatic areas may be beneficial, but beyond that, the evidence points to diminishing returns (your cells can only absorb so much light at once). For this reason, we recommend you allow at least 6 hours between treatments of the same area.
Daily Use is Optimal:
To get the most out of your Red Light Therapy, consistency is key. We recommend treatment 3 days per week but daily use, may be beneficial for symptomatic areas. If you have to miss some days, we suggest a treatment at least twice a week. Sporadic treatments are similar to sporadic workouts; you may benefit that day, but for longer-term, full-body health effects, you need to be consistent.
Any Time of Day:
Use our treatment when it works best for you. Some people love how it feels in the morning and say it perks them up for the day. Others wait until before or after a workout for maximum energy and recovery. Many prefer an early evening treatment. The important thing is fitting red light therapy into your daily routine, regardless of what time.
You can still benefit from treatments while wearing makeup, but for optimal use, we recommend removing it and cleaning your skin so more natural light can reach your cells.
Many clients using our full-body devices prefer to do so in the nude. Delivering natural light to more surface area of your body leads to better light therapy outcomes, but full nudity is not necessarily required for effective, full-body use. Lighter garments like underwear, bras, shorts, and socks may be worn without hampering a treatment, though the covered areas not exposed directly to the light will not receive any benefits.
Targeting Problem Areas:
Many of the health benefits from red light therapy can be attained by consistent, full-body use. For example, you don’t need to target your thyroid gland to treat symptoms of thyroid disorders. However, it can be beneficial to target specific physical problem areas like sore joints or burns. In those cases, direct treatments for 10-20 minutes allows natural light to penetrate deeper into tissue for greater effect.
For an effective treatment, the area of your body that you’re treating needs to be exposed directly to the light. Clothing prevents the red and near infrared light from reaching your cells, so be sure to remove any garments from the part of your body you’re treating.
Eyes / Glasses:
You may safely remove your eyeglasses and contacts for treatments. Red light therapy has been shown in numerous clinical trials to support eye health and vision. However, the LED lights can be quite bright, so we don’t recommend looking at them directly. If it’s too bright, we recommend closing your eyes until it’s comfortable to open them. You may also wear sunglasses. Special protective glasses are provided without charge by our treatment center. See our FAQs TAB for LASIK questions. Water: Dry yourself after showering, bathing or swimming before starting a treatment.
