The Science of Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level red and near-infrared light to penetrate deep into the skin and tissues. This therapy has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its numerous health benefits and its ability to provide relief from a variety of conditions, including skin issues, muscle and joint pain, enhance performance, improve sleep and blood circulation.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy works by using low-level light waves to penetrate the skin and stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the primary energy source for cells. This increased energy production leads to an increase in blood flow, which in turn provides more oxygen and nutrients to the cells. As a result, the cells are able to regenerate and repair themselves more effectively, leading to improved overall health and well-being. In addition to increasing ATP production, red light therapy also triggers the release of nitric oxide, a molecule that plays an important role in regulating blood flow and reducing inflammation. This makes red light therapy an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including acne, rosacea, and psoriasis, as well as for reducing pain and swelling in joints and muscles.
