Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy (RLT) is an FDA approved therapy. The original research for modern red light therapy came from NASA. Red light devices were used to limit bone and muscle loss in space. Red light produces 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 RLT, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.
RLT also directly stimulates regeneration of the skin. The light emitted by RLT penetrates roughly 5 millimeters below the skin's surface. Unlike lasers and Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL), there are no side effects other than a rosy glow.
Evidence has shown that RLT has the following benefits:
