Red light therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses red, low-level wavelengths of light. When exposed to red light therapy, the body produces a biochemical effect that boosts the amount of energy stored in cells, explains Z. Paul Lorenc, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon. This helps cells to function more efficiently and repair damage, which is why it’s been used to treat scars and wounds. But red light therapy really took off in popularity for its efficacy in combating wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, discoloration, and other signs of less-than-stellar skin health.

We all have had skin issues in our lifetime. There are expensive creams, supplements and sprays. But are any of these options really healthy for the skin? There is another alternative for skin care and that is red light therapy for skin health. Light therapy is an effective treatment that can help a wide variety of skin conditions and is backed by alot of clinical evidence.Let’s look at some clear benefits from the leading minds in the field.

Studies Show Red Light Therapy Assists in Skin Health

So we all know that the sun damages our skin. Why is that, well it is from the UV rays. So what does that have to do with red light therapy? Red light therapy does not emit UV rays, rather a positive red light wavelength the skin uses the energy from that light to stimulate new skin cells.

So red light can assist in the bodies natural production of new skin cells to help renew you skin. Cell growth by red light is the most natural way studies show to assist in skin health.

Collagen what?

Dr. Lorenc has commented on the clear benefits of red light therapy and collagen production. Studies related to the effects of red light therapy and skin care.

“Your complexion will be more lifted, toned, and improved—resulting in younger-looking, smoother skin by increasing healthy cellular activity,” says Vargas. In addition to helping to hydrate and heal the skin, it’s also great for anti-aging because it protects existing collagen and elastin, while also stimulating new collagen production, she says.[2]

Dr. Lorenc backs up its anti-aging powers: “I’ve worked extensively with red light therapy and the skin and find it to be effective at both boosting collagen production and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,” he says.

And since the wavelengths penetrate deeply, they’re more efficacious than say, a wrinkle-reducing serum. Use the two in tandem, though, and you’ll see results that are (unscientifically speaking) twice as nice.

The answer is clear, Red Light Therapy 

Adding red light therapy 5 minutes a day can help your skin in so many ways. Find your benefits with Solas red light therapy today.
