Infrared Light Therapy has grown in popularity in the past few years. The cool thing about beauty is the next best thing is always popping up, so the excitement never ceases. Infrared Light Therapy promises to fight acne and signs of aging with the use of light technology. Infrared Light stimulates collagen and elastin. Infrared light is most commonly used to promote circulation, your skin responds by building, strengthening, and maximizing cellular structure. It is also believed to target oil glands to reduce cytokines, which cause inflammation and play a role in chronic acne.
Using safe, healing red and infrared light to stimulate your body’s own regenerative metabolism at the cellular level, light therapy accelerates the production of collagen and elastin and improves the appearance of the skin. LED (light emitting diodes) produces the same light frequencies as lasers but without the intense heat and tissue damage. Infrared Light Therapy definitely doesn’t hurt. It is FDA approved, gentle, painless, safe, completely non-invasive and non-abrasive and yet the red light penetrates deeply into skin tissue to produce a holistic treatment with no downtime.
Calming and relaxing, Infrared Light Therapy treatments create a warming sensation while specific wavelengths and frequencies penetrate the skin to reverse damage and encourage repair at the cellular level. In addition, the emitting diodes (LED) encourage the skins metabolism, resulting in gentle lifting and tightening. Light Therapy treatments are completely painless and are effective for a variety of skin conditions. 8-10 treatments are recommended twice per week for the first 4 weeks and maintenance can be monthly or at clients choice.
The heat and light boost blood circulation, bringing more blood and nutrients to all skin types. Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared light therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
People turn to Infrared Light Therapy to fix skin problems such as acne or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you decide to go get this treatment along with a massage or facial at a spa, you really don’t have to do much but lie there and relax. After facial treatment, we place Infrared Light panels a few inches away from the patient’s face. Eye protection is also placed as the lights are quite bright. We treat the skin for about 15-20 minutes. At first, it feels warm, but patients report really liking the feeling of relaxation. The light doesn’t cause any burns or skin damage. It’s pretty much painless. It’s important to understand that red light therapy needs your commitment. All drug-free skin treatments do not work after only a few sessions or when done occasionally. It’s recommended to have at least 3 weekly sessions in a professional spa. Don’t do more than 5 LED facials per week, to allow the skin to regenerate and activate collagen and elastin production.
Depending on which area of the body the red light is used, this can easily affect all skin layers, reaching into blood vessels, lymph pathways, nerves, and hair follicles. Infrared light therapy is able to affect very positive reactions in your body on a cellular level, and is now being used by many doctors for the treatment of many different health conditions.
