Light affects our bodies in many important ways. For instance, we need sunlight to make vitamin D. Plus, sunlight just makes us feel good!
Other wavelengths of light also have very beneficial effects on our bodies! Two of our favorites are red light and infrared light.
What Is Red Light therapy?
Red light LED therapy was originally developed by NASA. It is also known as photobiomodulation or low level light therapy. When red light is applied to the body, it can be absorbed by the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. The red light wavelengths stimulate mitochondrial activity. The increased mitochondrial activity accelerates ATP production, which is the energy needed to power our cells and body. Additionally, these wavelengths stimulate collagen and elastin production. This allows red light therapy to provide powerful results for a wide range of conditions and why we include it with all of our microneedling treatments.
Benefits of red light LED therapy:
- Minimize fine lines & wrinkles
- Reduce active acnes & repair acne scarring
- Improve uneven skin tone
- Increase collagen & ellastin production
- Stimulate hair growth
- Increase circulation
- Decrease inflammation
What Is Infrared Therapy?
Infrared therapy is another wavelength of light that can have powerful effects on our bodies. However, we cannot see infrared light. Instead, we feel infrared as heat.
Infrared wavelengths are longer than red light wavelengths. These longer wavelengths can penetrate more deeply into our bodies. This makes infrared heat a great option for more chronic, internal conditions. For this reason, we mostly use infrared heat for chronic pain conditions, such as arthritis, back pain, neck pain, and knee pain.
Additionally, we love infrared heat for its’ anti-inflammatory benefits. This is another reason why it is great for pain; however, this also makes it a great option for inflammatory or auto-immune conditions, such as endometriosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or IBS.
Benefits of infrared therapy:
- Improve chronic pain
- Manage auto-immune conditions
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase relaxation & reduce stress
- Improve sleep
- Boost immunity
