What is Light Therapy?
Hollywood stars and Harvard researchers agree: light therapy is great for your skin! Light therapy harnesses the healing power of natural light to rejuvenate your skin cells, boost collagen production, and diminish signs of aging. A-List Hollywood estheticians like Shani Darden insist on red light for their superstar clients. Leading researchers at Harvard and elsewhere have documented light therapy’s ability to lessen wrinkles, lines, and spots, and improve skin tone & complexion. There are no drugs or notable side effects, and all you have to do is expose your skin to healing red light for 10 minutes a day.
How Does Light Therapy Work?
Light therapy works at the cellular level. Photons of therapeutic red and near infrared light are absorbed by the mitochondria in your cells, producing 2 major effects:
• More ATP energy: Light therapy increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy produced during cellular respiration that powers your cells (and indeed, all life on earth). More ATP means more energy and healthier function.
• Enhanced cell signaling: Speciﬁc wavelengths of light help to create a better oxidative environment in your cells. This results in the activation of numerous intracellular signaling pathways, increased protein synthesis, and enhanced cell cycle progression.
The Right Wavelengths Make All the Difference
Red and near infrared light therapy uses a very speciﬁc range of wavelengths within the natural light spectrum (660nm to 850nm). A wealth of clinical research shows this range of light is highly beneﬁcial at the cellular level. Light therapy delivers these therapeutic wavelengths without harmful heat or UV rays.
Safe, Non-Invasive, Chemical & Drug Free
Light therapy is safe, non-invasive, uses no chemicals or drugs, and is not associated with harmful side effects. It simply harnesses the natural healing and rejuvenating beneﬁts of a speciﬁc range of therapeutic light and delivers this targeted energy at a higher rate than the sun—without harmful UV rays. A major 2013 study conducted by Harvard and MIT researchers praised light therapy for its “noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects.”
Clinically-Proven Health Beneﬁts
Light therapy has been studied extensively. There’s a wealth of clinical research that shows numerous health beneﬁts, with virtually no side effects. Here’s a sampling of documented beneﬁts:
• Improved skin tone, clarity, & complexion
• Diminishes age spots, ﬁne lines, & wrinkles
• Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
• Increases blood circulation
• Speeds muscle recovery to boost training & athletic performance
• Reduces joint pain & inﬂammation
• Speeds healing of wounds & injuries
• Boosts natural melatonin production & promotes healthy sleep
• Increases testosterone production in men
• Enhances mood, cognitive function, & mental clarity
