Does Red Light Therapy Really Work?

Red light therapy, also known as photo rejuvenation, is a technology that uses visible red light with a wavelength of 630-660 nanometers and infrared light with a wavelength of 880 nm to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, where it increases energy within cells and production. 

Collagen and elastin the skin layer absorb light very easily due to its high blood and water content. Photorejuvenation is considered to be one of the safest, fastest and cheapest ways to make dramatic changes against aging skin. You can also get more information about red light therapy via

There are numerous studies spanning over 40 years showing that LEDs (LEDs) in the red and infrared wavelength ranges offer powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. Studies show that LEDs produce at least 24 distinct positive changes at the cellular level, promoting healthier-looking, younger-looking skin cells.

Photorejuvenation has been shown to affect skin problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, rough skin and wrinkles. LEDs effectively and gently cause significant changes to the skin at a deep level, restoring cells, collagen and elastin.

History of red light therapy (LED light therapy)

LED light technology was originally developed for NASA's plant growth experiments and has proven useful in accelerating healing in space. Doctors started experimenting with LEDs to treat wounds in hospitals. They found that red and infrared LEDs increase energy in cells and increase the activity of mitochondria (the powerhouses in cells).
