What is red light therapy?
Can an innovative, space-age treatment really help rejuvenate your skin, assist with injury recovery and even eliminate acne? The answer appears to be yes. Red light tanning therapy, originally developed by NASA, is one of the hottest trends in skin repair.
Red Light Tanning beds produce a wavelength of between 600 to 660 nm (nanometers) which is outside of the range of UV. Red light is also sometimes referred to as infrared because light between 600 – 770 nm is classified as near infrared. Red light is able to penetrate deep into the skin and can work to repair damaged tissue and nerves. It is completely non-invasive and does not contain any harmful UV components. Because red light therapy takes place in a full sized tanning bed it treats the entire body not just the face.
How Long Does Red Light Therapy Take?
In order to see results using Red Light Tanning therapy you will need to commit to 3 to 4 20 minute sessions during the first couple weeks. After this initial period you can usually visit around 2 to 3 times a week in order to see good results.
So if you are looking for a more mild non-aggressive treatment with few side-effects, which still produces excellent results then red light tanning therapy may just be the right solution for you. Also, it is a good idea to gain the best results by applying the Red Light therapy Lotion before and after each session.
