How does Red light therapy work?

Red light therapy is used in conjunction with invisible Infrared light for skin rejuvenation and more. LIGHTWAVE therapy is also used for acne scar reduction by combing Red light therapy with Blue light therapy (which can also be used to activate photodynamic therapy, or phototherapy).

Essentially what Red light therapy does – in combination with Infrared light – is stimulate the skin so as to promote skin rejuvenation for:

  • Anti aging
  • Sun spots
  • Flaccid skin
  • Acne scar reduction

This therapy can also help reduce wrinkles. As for Blue light therapy, it intensifies the immune functions in the skin and can also be used for photodynamic therapy, or phototherapy.

Determining the right formula for each person’s treatment simply depends on the type of skin rejuvenation desired – from facial rejuvenation to acne scar reduction. For instance, the role it plays in boosting immunity in the skin makes Blue light therapy ideal for killing the bacteria that cause blemishes in the first place. Of course, it is always used with Red light therapy (and infrared light) for its anti-inflammatory effect.

Best of all, Red light therapy (and Blue light therapy) are natural, pain-free and affordable phototherapy alternatives to more expensive, invasive treatments.
