WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?

Best-Infrared-Light-Therapy-Home-Devices

Red light works by producing a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it’s where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

By increasing the function of the mitochondria using red light therapy, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.

Red light therapy is different from laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies because it doesn’t cause damage to the skin surface. Laser and pulsed light therapies work by causing controlled damage to the outer layer of the skin, which then induces tissue repair. Red light bypasses this harsh step by directly stimulating regeneration of the skin. The light emitted penetrates roughly 5 millimeters below the skin’s surface.
