Red light therapy (RLT) aims to solve skin issues by using low wavelength red light. Many experts believe that it can help with issues such as skin conditions, scarring, and signs of aging - including wrinkles and age spots.

How it works?

RLT is a straightforward procedure involving exposing the body to low wavelength red light. Low-level laser light therapy is another name for the process, though RLT may be more common.

This red light is natural and can penetrate deep into the skin, where the cells can absorb and use it.

This can help the cells produce more adenosine triphosphate, which is the energy source for all cells.

Many experts attribute the potential positive benefits of RLT to this function. With this extra energy, the cells may be able to respond better to damage and rejuvenate themselves.

Improving skin health

Most people show interest in RLT as a possible way to improve skin health.

The potential for using RLT as a way to rejuvenate the skin has led to a large number of studies. RLT may help rejuvenate the skin by:

  • increasing collagen production in the skin, which gives the skin its elasticity
  • increasing fibroblast production, which helps produce collagen and other tissue fibers
  • increasing circulation between blood and tissue cells
  • protecting cells from damage
  • increasing mRNA in the cells, which helps stimulate the cell
  • improving facial texture
  • reducing fine lines
  • reducing wrinkle severity

Researchers found that these light therapies do the following:

How many sessions are needed for improvement?

Minimum of 6 RLT sessions are required to achieve the desired levels of rejuvenations no longer than 48 hours upart. Each RLT session should not be longer than 15 minutes. To maintain and increase the effect of RLT additional treatments should be done once per week.
