Here is what happens under Red Light
Our skin is the first organ that any light waves meet when encountering our body. It protects us as well as utilizes light waves for our benefit in many ways. One of the most important is replenishing our body's essential surplus of Vitamin D.
What our skin does when red light waves are introduced is amazing. Collagen and elastin, the framework for our skin's integrity and vitality, are both stimulated and start to replicate more rapidly. This increased production of collagen and elastin helps to repair the damages caused by UV light and other injuries.
What Happens on a Cellular Level:
Collagen synthesis is stimulated, and fibroblasts become more prolific (another important building block for the skin). Red light also reduces inflammation, which is a common occurrence in skin for many reasons. The reduction of inflammation, when combined with the increase of essential molecules allows for more vital energy sources to be produced in the skin.
How Does Red Light Therapy Benefit my Skin Health?
Our skin is quite literally our body's armor. This large organ is so incredibly important to our overall health, including our confidence and mental well-being. Red light therapy reduces signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines that may have accumulated by harmful UV rays over the years. Reversing years of sun damage and turning back the clock on the appearance of your skin will give you a unique confidence boost and will have you glowing from the inside out.
Studies have shown very promising results with red light therapy, which is now used to treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, hyperpigmentation, vitiligo and more. All of these are incredibly common skin conditions that can have a significant impact on a person's physical and mental state of health. Red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment with little to no side effects. It has the ability to turn back your skin's clock significantly and promote both healing and overall vitality for the future. The Red/Blue light combination has also shown good success for specific skin issues such as acne, psoriasis, eczema.

What Science is Telling Us:
"In theory, red light could help to reverse some of the signs related to photoaging in the skin, says Dr. Buzney. In addition, some studies show that red light may help to restore hair for those with androgenetic alopecia, or male- and female-pattern hair loss, she says."

"The photons are absorbed by mitochondrial chromophores in skin cells. Consequently, electron transport, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) nitric oxide release, blood flow, reactive oxygen species increase, and diverse signaling pathways get activated. Stem cells can be activated allowing increased tissue repair and healing." Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4126803/
"The proposed underlying mechanisms include the photostimulation of terminal molecules in the electron transport chain and the subsequent adenosine triphosphate (ATP) concentration increase, along with the selective light-driven activation of water molecules,19 thereby enhancing metabolic exchange and influencing the ion transporter systems found in cellular membranes."
