How Does Red Light Therapy Work?

Sunlight consists of the entire spectrum of light, both visible & invisible. Too much exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) Light wavelengths can have harmful effects on our skin, for which we should be applying sunscreen. But red & NIR wavelengths are safe; they will not tan or burn your skin.

When applied in an isolated form, at therapeutic intensities, red & NIR light can have amazing health benefits. These effects were first noticed by NASA scientists and have been studied over the last 30 years. Only recently is the technology advanced enough to make it more available to individuals.

Our light panel from PlatinumLED is an FDA-approved Class II Medical Device. It emits 5 wavelengths of red & NIR light: 630, 660, 810, 830 & 850nm. Each wavelength penetrates through the body tissues to a specific depth and has its own special benefits.

Is Red Light Therapy Safe?

Yes. Red light in the range of 600-1000nm allows us to enjoy many of the health benefits of sunlight, without the risks of cellular damage, such as sunburn. The main caution is to protect your eyes from the intensely bright LED bulbs. Eye protection will be provided during treatment.

Those who should not receive red & NIR Light therapy, out of an abundance of caution, are those who are pregnant; or those with epilepsy, an implanted electronic device, malignant cancer or severe hyperpigmentation.
