Three Main Red Light Therapy Benefits

Red light therapy is non-invasive and penetrates far into the skin’s layers without causing UV damage. It basically sets the body’s own healing process in motion, delivering light energy as nourishment to every cell of the body much like plants absorb energy from the sun’s rays. 

Relax and soak in the calming vibes while enjoying this gentle and restorative treatment. Here are our top suggestions for getting the most benefits from red light therapy:

Skin Health

Red light therapy can help remedy many of our most frustrating and concerning skin problems. It has been proven beneficial to skin of all ages for aging woes like fine lines and wrinkles, to acne, rosacea, eczema, and redness. Red light therapy for the face allows the mitochondria of the cell to soak in the light and produce more energy. As a result, cells are able to become healthier and repair themselves offering tremendous anti-aging skin benefits. Healthy glowing skin is on the way!

  • Research shows that red light therapy for the face helps smooth the skin, improve facial texture and complexion, and enhance overall clarity, tone, and radiance. It helps diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of skin aging and skin damage. It also helps increase collagen density which strengthens the skin’s elasticity and adds moisture! Red light therapy for the face? FTW!
  • Red light therapy helps reduce cellulite and stretch marks as well as the reduction of scarring, burns, acne scars, and signs of UV sun damage. You won’t have to hide your skin anymore!
  • Red light therapy has also been shown as a potentially effective treatment for acne. The light appears to penetrate deep into the skin and affect sebum production while also reducing inflammation and irritation. Smile wide, kids!

Cellular Repair

Did you know that studies have shown that DNA production slows by 5 to 10% per decade starting at the age of 18? Wait, what?! Fear not, we have you covered.

On a cellular level, red light therapy helps produce ATP or cellular energy. This leads to vital cell filtration, tissue oxygenation, and cellular synthesis of DNA and RNA. Get ready to see those energy levels rise!

Red light therapy nourishes the cell from the inside out — infusing the cells with that highly beneficial “sunlight” energy that helps our DNA and RNA repair themselves. This increases the cell’s ability to create energy, improving cellular function. That glow will be streaming out you!

Within the LightStim bed at Scher Natural Wellness, santa fe there are 18.420 LED lights that penetrate the body with this nourishing healing energy. The four wavelengths of light directly improve physiological function by increasing cellular repair of DNA, RNA, mitochondria function, and nitric oxide flow. The flow of nitric oxide is essential for the body’s optimal expression of health. Nitric oxide is a messenger molecule that triggers healing processes in the body. Red light therapy benefits also include:

  • Improves blood flow in circulation
  • Helps the body restore homeostasis 
  • Increases oxygenation of the blood

Inflammation and Pain Relief

The aging process is directly linked to inflammation – it is an immune system response to infection or irritation. Both the internal and external factors which create inflammation in the body are linked to aging. Chronic inflammation is associated with all skin conditions including aging. By increasing the production of nitric oxide, infrared, red and blue LED light therapy increases circulation, speeds healing and relieves pain. Red light therapy benefits also include the kinds of pain associated with inflammation:

  • Aids in the reduction of systemic inflammation 
  • Accelerates healing and helps relieve pain 
  • Reduces joint pain and inflammation due to arthritis
  • Enhances muscle recovery

Overall, it is a completely natural process. It exposes the skin to the benefits of sunlight, encouraging optimal skin function — without harmful UV light from the sun. You will experience the immediate and cumulative health and beauty benefits of red light therapy.
