Red Light Therapy at Zen Yoga Barre

How Red Light Therapy Works

Red light therapy works its magic by delivering safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light into your skin (up to 10 deep millimeters) where it’s absorbed by your cells. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and fibroblasts. That in turn enhances a little something known as ATP, the source of energy for every cell in the body. Red light therapy also boosts circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to your cells and tissues. 

When your cells are hit with the red light wavelengths, a host of regenerative effects occur, leading to potential benefits like younger-looking skin, enhanced muscle repair, and diminished scarring.Increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries.

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

Some of the major, clinically-proven health benefits of red light therapy include: 

  • Builds collagen and reduces wrinkles

  • Speeds the healing of acne, rosacea and eczema

  • Smooths overall skin tone

  • Repairs sun damage

  •  Fades scars and stretch marks

  • Speeds the healing of wounds and injuries

  • Reduces inflammation

Thousands of peer-reviewed clinical trials and studies on RLT have been conducted over the last few decades and published in major scientific journals. The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of its effectiveness & safety, and the FDA has approved light therapy for the treatment of joint pain, reduction of wrinkles, and many other conditions.

Is Red Light Therapy Safe?

Unlike most conventional treatments, red light therapy is safe, non-invasive, uses no chemicals or drugs, and is not associated with harmful side effects. Red light therapy simply harnesses the natural healing and rejuvenating benefits of a specific range of therapeutic natural light and delivers this targeted energy at a higher rate than the sun—without harmful UV rays. This FDA approved therapy is safe for all skin types and according to dermatologists, and other skin care specialists, one can’t overdo it. Where it does become controversial is how many rays you actually need to soak up to see results—researchers haven't yet nailed down the optimal dose. But in the meantime, you can rest easy knowing there’s proven antiaging benefits and no harmful side effects.
