Red light therapy has become incredibly popular with both celebrities and regular women like you and me. But what is red light therapy and does it really work?
The appearance of your skin is effected by numerous factors such as sun exposure, gravity, pollution, smoke, harsh soaps, free radicals, and poor diet. All of these things break down your collagen and elastin causing wrinkles, large pores, rough skin, uneven skin tone, and age spots.
Red light therapy is a technology that combines red light wavelengths from 630-660 nm and infrared light wavelengths at 880nm to penetrate safely and deeply into the layers of your skin where they repair damage by stimulating collagen and elastin production. The layers of your skin have a high content of blood and water which makes it easy for your skin to absorb light.
So, does red light therapy work? There has been much research done that shows that red light therapy delivers powerful benefits to living tissue. Studies have shown that it effects at least 24 positive changes at a cellular level promoting healthier and younger skin as well as speeding up the healing process and relieving pain.
It has been proven to repair damage and treat numerous skin conditions such as fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, age spots, large pores, and rough skin. Red and infrared light wavelengths gently and effectively repair cells, collagen, and elastin at a deep level without causing pain, irritation, or down time.
Wikipedia describes the benefits of light therapy as: “So far, what we’ve seen in patients and what we’ve seen in laboratory cell cultures, all point to one conclusion,” said Dr. Harry Whelan, professor of pediatric neurology and director of hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “The near-infrared light emitted by these LEDs seems to be perfect for increasing energy inside cells. This means whether you’re on Earth in a hospital, working in a submarine under the sea or on your way to Mars inside a spaceship, the LEDs boost energy to the cells and accelerate healing.”
The results are not as dramatic as a surgical procedure but they are significant and encourage younger looking and acting skin. You will look like you only better, you only younger. It rejuvenates the skin without the tight and sometimes fake look of plastic surgery.
The DPL® Therapy System is the most powerful and advanced system on the market. It’s FDA cleared for home use, hands-free, and shown to significantly improve the appearance of the skin and relive pain throughout the body.
