Red light therapy is a holistic medicinal approach that helps the skin tissue, muscle tissue, and other parts heal. In this technique, we provide light energy to improve the healing potential of different body tissues.
Red light therapy exposes you to low levels of red and near-infrared light waves for regular intervals. Infrared is a type of light energy that your eyes can’t see, but you can feel heat energy. However, red light is just like infrared, but you can see it with your eyes.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Red light therapy exposes you to low levels of red and near-infrared light waves emitting from a lamp, laser, or another device. It uses very low levels of light waves that do not damage your skin. However, your skin cells and the internal body cells absorb these light waves. There is an organelle inside the cells, called mitochondria, responsible for the energy generation in the body. Mitochondria are known as the “powerhouse of the cell.”
Light waves emitting from the laser or lamp hit the mitochondria, where they are absorbed. Mitochondria generate more energy by soaking the energy of light waves. Experts and researchers say that this helps the cell heal the damage and become healthier.
WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
Red light therapy has more recently gained the interest from researchers. Therefore, there are not too many studies have been conducted on red light therapy. But a few studies conducted on red light therapy gives us promising results and client satisfaction about the beneficial effects of red-light therapy.
Here are some conditions that red light therapy treats. The list of treatments may increase with time as we dig deeper into this holistic therapy.
Wrinkles and signs of aging: Researches show that it helps improve the skin removing wrinkles, acne, scars, and burns. It also reduces the signs of aging and smoothens your skin.
Dementia: Red light therapy helps people improve their memory and have better sleeps. Red light therapy also makes people calm and less angry.
Dental pain: Red light therapy improves the tenderness and strength of connective tissue. People suffering from temporomandibular dysfunction syndrome can be treated with this therapy. It helps regain the connective tissue strength and function. Furthermore, it reduces the pain.
Hair loss: Red light therapy also improves the strength and thickness of hair. People with hair loss problems can grow thick and strong hair utilizing red light therapy.
Osteoarthritis (OA): Red light therapy reduces OA pain in patients by almost 50%.
Tendinitis: Inflammation of tendons like the Achilles tendon can be reduced with red light therapy. It is effective in reducing inflammation and pain.
Scientists are trying to find further pieces of evidence on how red light therapy works. The high patient satisfaction rates, study results of improvement in skin feeling and complexion, and other studies make us believe that red light therapy does wonders for our bodies. The important aspect of red-light therapy is that it is a non-invasive, pain and drug-free technique with no side effects.
