What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is a treatment option for the skin which uses low-level wavelengths of light from red LEDs. This technology was first developed to allow scientists to grow plants in space before being studied for use in medicine. Researchers have found that just as these red LEDs help plants grow, they can be used to increase energy in human cells and cell turnover. This means that patients who undergo red light therapy will see improved new skin cell growth and a more youthful appearance overall.
At Nouveau Health and Wellness, we offer several treatment options that utilize red light therapy. These include NovoTHOR as well as Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT), which is also referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). Each of these services uses the same red light technology for varying purposes. During a consultation, the best treatment option for you can be determined.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy can improve a range of skin conditions or signs of aging. Some conditions or concerns that can be improved using red light therapy include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Rough or uneven texture
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Sun spots and sun damage
- Hair loss
Additional research and study is needed to understand the full range of conditions that red light therapy can treat. Some anecdotal evidence shows that red light therapy may also be beneficial for:
- Weight loss
During your consultation, you can discuss whether red light therapy would be beneficial for your concerns and reasonable expectations with your technician.
The Red Light Therapy Procedure
The red light therapy procedure is relatively simple and can be completed quickly. During the treatment, your provider will either instruct you to lie directly below red LED lights or direct LED light wands to the treatment area. You will experience a warming sensation, but the treatment is not painful whatsoever. On average, a red light therapy treatment can be completed in about 20 minutes.
Most patients will require multiple red light therapy sessions to achieve their desired results, with up to ten sessions total. These treatments will be scheduled about a week apart, with results gradually improving as you receive additional sessions.
What to Expect After Red Light Therapy
One of the benefits of red light therapy is that no downtime or recovery is required. You can return to your normal, everyday activities immediately after the treatment. You will see some minor results soon after your first red light therapy session, but results will gradually improve as you complete subsequent treatments.
Results from red light therapy are not permanent, so it is usually recommended to schedule routine maintenance treatments every few months. This is because cell turn over will continue, so signs of aging due to collagen loss will gradually emerge again. Your red light therapy provider at Nouveau Health and Wellness can recommend a long-term treatment plan that will allow you to enjoy your results over time.
