What Is Red Light Therapy & Is It Right for You?, Stillwater, Oklahoma

Are you worried about fine lines or scarring? The tanning salon might not be the first place that comes to mind for pursuing treatment. Yet, it’s here that a cutting-edge service known as red light therapy has shown promise for addressing these and other skin issues. If you’re wondering about the ability of this remarkable therapy to treat common conditions, discover the basics below. 

A Beginner’s Guide to Red Light Therapy

What Does the Treatment Involve?

Red light therapy exposes individuals to low-level light waves, which are believed to increase collagen and reduce inflammation. Unlike blue light, red light consists of a longer wavelength, which means it’s better able to reach deeper tissues to spur healing. Getting red light therapy is simple: just head to a tanning salon where it’s offered and enjoy brief sessions of lying relaxed in a bed as your body receives the treatment.

What Are Its Benefits?

While there are many potential uses for red light therapy, some of the most promising are those relating to skin issues, such as acne. Since it’s also suspected to spur collagen production, visiting the tanning salon for this treatment could also reduce wrinkles. Overall, red light therapy may improve skin tone, texture, and clarity.

Moreover, persistent inflammation is linked to a number of diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and depression. Thus, combatting inflammation can help to improve health overall. Moreover, the effects of red light therapy occur at the deep, cellular level, but won’t leave the skin tanned or burned. This means it’s perfect even for individuals with sensitive skin.  

How Long Does It Take?

The benefits of red light therapy reveal themselves slowly over time. Improvements such as enhanced skin tone, reduced inflammation, and others can be witnessed within two to three months. While each individual is different, a frequency of two to three visits per week is recommended for most people.
