RED LIGHT THERAPY TREATMENT AT A GLANCE

WHAT IT DOES: During a red light therapy treatment, the skin is exposed to a lamp, device, or laser-like red light. The light is absorbed by the mitochondria in the cells, enhancing the consumption of oxygen and increasing the level of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a cell’s primary form of energy. This photobiomodulation energy is used by the cells to build new proteins such as collagen and elastin and to assist the process of cellular regeneration. Red light therapy does not contain harmful UV rays and will not burn or damage the skin.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The red light spectrum is broad, and not all wavelengths deliver the same therapeutic benefit. Patients interested in red light therapy devices for home use to complement professional red light therapy treatments should consider equipment in the range of 630-670 nanometers (nm) for skin rejuvenation and healing and a range of 700-950 nm for low-level laser therapy (LLT) for healing and relief of body pain and inflammation.

In addition to wavelength, devices will vary based on the energy output. The output of a red light therapy device is known as irradiance (the flux of radiant energy per unit area) and is measured in terms of mw/cm2. A red light therapy device with a lower irradiance rating, or energy output, will require longer sessions than a device with stronger irradiance. Professional photobiomodulation equipment includes specific training or pre-programmed settings to ensure the proper amount of light energy is absorbed by the tissues. The time that it takes may vary from 5 to 45 minutes.
