Red Light Therapy (photobiomodulation)

Red Light Therapy

Forty years of independent research has shown that Light Therapy has powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. In the 1960s researchers in Europe noticed that certain single wavelengths had excellent therapeutic effects on the treatment of tissues through a process called photo-stimulation. One example is the practice of “light-treating” babies for jaundice, a common condition of newborns.

More recently, researchers have noted that it stimulated skin tissue to regenerate and improve the appearance of the skin. Red Light Therapy helps to increase blood and oxygen flow to the skin and capillaries, therefore increasing cellular metabolism and strengthening the capillary walls. Circulation is increased, and collagen production and healing are promoted. It stimulates gradual healing by increasing blood circulation and lymphatic activity. This effect has produced very positive results in the treatment of rosacea, anti-aging and sun damage.

In space, the weightless environment slows cellular growth, in part because it depends on gravity. NASA research examined the use of light to penetrate deep into tissues and found it stimulated cell growth and promoted healing in zero-G environments.

Today, LED Light Therapy is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that is gentle, painless, safe and effective. Treatments are non-invasive and non-abrasive

Empower Wellness Studio offers 20 minute Red Light Therapy sessions in a red light bed.

Recommended protocol is 3 to 4 sessions per week for the first 12 weeks. Continuous use accelerates cellular activity and fuels the collagen and elastin production. After your first 12 weeks, we recommend 1-2 sessions per week thereafter.
