Red Light Therapy | Salt Lake City
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is a natural, non-invasive treatment that uses low-level wavelengths of red light to stimulate the body's natural processes and promote healing. It has been used for a wide range of health conditions, including skin conditions, muscle and joint pain, and wound healing.
How Does Red Light Therapy Help?
Red light therapy works by penetrating the skin's surface and stimulating the mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell. This increased cellular activity can improve the function of the cells, leading to a range of potential health benefits. Red light therapy has been shown to increase collagen production, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation to tissues in the body.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Improved skin health
Red light therapy has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. It can also help to reduce inflammation and redness, making it useful for conditions such as acne and rosacea. Stretch marks can improve along with the overall texture of the skin.
Red light therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing muscle and joint pain, including conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. It can also be helpful in reducing inflammation and promoting healing after an injury.
Red light therapy has been shown to improve the healing of wounds and reduce scarring. It can be used to help heal cuts, scrapes, and surgical incisions.
Red light therapy has been shown to improve sleep quality and help with insomnia. It can also improve the symptoms of conditions such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Is red light therapy safe?
Red light therapy appears to be safe and is not associated with any side effects, at least if used short-term and as directed. This therapy is not toxic and not invasive. Unlike the cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning booths, RLT doesn’t use this type of light.
