Why does your body need red light therapy?
Red light therapy can provide skin and cells with natural light in therapeutic wavelengths and can also be seen as nourishment for the body. The body needs certain wavelengths of light. The body produces important elements by absorbing specific wavelengths of light. Red light and near-infrared light promote the production of important elements such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which boosts the energy of cells and drives many processes in the body. Using RLT regularly, we are able to artificially power cells in the body. Not only is it safe, but it also offers a range of health benefits.
What are the benefits of red light for the skin?
The benefits of red light therapy have been researched for many years, and the results of these studies have been incredibly positive - the benefits of red light therapy for the skin are second to none and completely non-invasive! The results of these studies show that regular red light therapy can improve collagen production, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin tone and smoothness. This treatment is effective on both the face and body, and can improve skin problems caused by sun damage and premature aging.
Red light therapy can also be effective in treating inflamed, painful skin problems. This dermatologist-conducted study found that inflammation in psoriasis can be cured by 60-100% after just four months! They also found that red light therapy was able to reduce the average number of skin lesions by 81% after 12 weeks, Red light therapy is a safe treatment for a variety of skin problems.
Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, uses specific wavelengths of light to increase mitochondrial function and increase ATP production.
ATP is the body's source of energy, and we can't function properly without it - so increased ATP production means more energy and better bodily function.
Red light therapy has had successful therapeutic applications in several countries and is FDA-approved for the treatment of chronic joint pain, slow-healing wounds, hair loss, premature aging, acne, and several other evidence-based benefits attributed to red light therapy, iincluding to:
Improve wound healing.
Reduce stretch marks
Reduce wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
Improve facial texture.
Improve psoriasis, rosacea and eczema.
Improve sun-damaged skin.
Improve hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia.
How do red light therapy pads work?
During red light exposure, photoreceptors in the skin -- the chromophore -- absorb red and near-infrared light. This light is converted to adenine triphosphate (ATP) in our mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy factories of our body and ATP is the fuel of our cells. By converting red and near-infrared light into ATP, it can increase energy in cells. Among other things, it can be used to make new proteins like collagen and elastin, and help cells regenerate.
Do I need eye protection when using a red light?
When using UTK red light pads, the intense light may be uncomfortable for your eyes. You can use the protective goggles we have provided for you.
When first starting up, the eyes need to adapt to the strong light output. It is recommended that you look away or close your eyes and open them slowly so your eyes can adjust. It is not recommended to directly look at the LED lights.
