How Red Light Therapy Works
Red light therapy works by stimulating the mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of our cells. The mitochondria convert the energy from the red and near-infrared light into ATP, which is the primary source of energy for our cells. This increase in ATP production helps to improve cellular function and promote healing.
Red light therapy also promotes the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity. By increasing collagen production, red light therapy can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and promote healing of wounds and scars.

Additionally, red light therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation, which is a key factor in many chronic health conditions. By reducing inflammation, red light therapy can help to alleviate pain and improve overall health and well-being.
Overall, the science behind red light therapy suggests that it can be a safe and effective treatment for a variety of health conditions, including skin problems, chronic pain, and inflammation.
Red Light Therapy is visible to the human eye and is best used for superficial conditions, it is great for the skin and 2cm beneath. Wavelength is 630 nm – 700nm. Near Infrared and Infrared Light Therapy is NOT visible to the human eye, penetrates all tissue from the skin to 1.5 inches below the skin. Wavelength 800 nm – 1000 nm.
Our Red Light Bed can be adjusted to expose the patient to wavelengths 660 nm to 850 nm, so it is both Red Light and Near Infrared Light
