Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy helps your body naturally produce enzymes, elastin fibers, and collagen, creating healthy, firm skin. Red light penetrates the skin and stimulates circulation, bringing more blood and nutrients to the area. It also helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As collagen plumps the skin, elastin firms it. Red light energizes and repairs damaged cells, stimulating collagen and elastin and giving your skin a youthful appearance. Red Light Therapy is harmless and suitable for all skin types and is proven to repair and rejuvenate skin.
Red Light Therapy has many benefits, including:
- Reduces pore size
- Repairs sun-damaged skin
- Reduces wrinkles & fine lines
- Treats acne
- Lightens age spots & under-eye circles
- Relieves joint pain
- Reduces stretch marks & scars

Red light therapy (RLT) involves the use of low-frequency red light to improve your skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles, scars, redness, and acne.
On average, the treatment should last between 10 and 20 minutes. Treatments lasting 20 minutes yield the best results. We recommend a 48-hour break between treatments.
While you may see some results quickly, you will continue to see the full effects over the next three to six months.
People react differently to red light treatments depending on their skin type and age. Generally, the best results are obtained after 8 – 12 weeks. During the first 1-4 weeks, it is recommended to do Red Light Therapy at least 3-5 times per week for 15 minutes, the maximum time on our bed.
