Want to know everything about red light therapy and its benefits

Red light therapy (RLT) is the most popular therapeutic technique which actually uses the red low-level wavelengths of light in order to treat many skin problems such as scars, wrinkles, and also persistent wounds. In the early 1990s, scientists had been used this red light therapy to help to grow plants in space. After a few years, they found that intense light from red LED (Light Emitting Diode) helped promote the photosynthesis and growth of the plant cells.

Red light therapy for humans:

After a lot of studies, the red light started using for its potential application in the medical field, and more particularly it can be used to increase the energy inside the human cells. Using light therapy is definitely the best way to treat bone density issues, muscle atrophy, and also slow wound healing caused by weightlessness throughout the space level. Red light therapy can also be called as follows such as,

  • Low-level light therapy (LLLT)
  • Photobiomodulation (PBM)
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Soft laser therapy
  • Biostimulation
  • Low power laser therapy (LPLT)
  • Photonic stimulation

There are various types of red light therapy currently available in the market. When it comes to the red light beds, they can be found at salons in order to reduce cosmetic skin problems like wrinkles and stretch marks. This kind of therapeutic treatment can also be used in any clinic setting to also treat some other serious conditions such as slow healing wounds, psoriasis, and also the side effects of chemotherapy. This red light therapy treatment can also help to heal your muscle tissues, skin, and several other parts of your body.

How does Red Light Therapy (RLT) work?

Red light is actually used to work by producing the biochemical effect in the human cells in order to strengthen the mitochondria. The mitochondria are actually providing the real power and energy to your body cells because it contains energy-carrying molecules for your healthy living and well being. With the use of the red light therapy device, it can be greatly possible to increase the function of these mitochondria which can increase the energy of the cells which can function highly efficiently, repair damage, and also rejuvenate themselves. Don’t confuse with intense pulsed light (IPL) or laser light with RLT therapy because it will not cause any damage to your surface of the skin. Pulsed light and laser therapies work by causing limited damage to the skin outer portion then it tempts the tissue repair. When it comes to red light therapy, it avoids this harsh step by directly stimulating skin regeneration. The LED light emitted by this red light therapy device actually enters roughly 5 mm below the surface of your skin. It will give a lot of benefits such as improve hair growth, promotes tissue repair and wound healing, stimulates healing of slow-healing wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, reduces side effects of cancer treatments, and more.
