Looking younger is on many people’s minds. In the past, people turned to expensive, invasive plastic surgery to reduce the appearance of aging, and the surgery didn’t always come out so great. We can all tell which celebrities have had extensive plastic surgery. However, there’s no need for plastic surgery any longer because of a technology actually developed by NASA. Red light therapy was designed to heal astronauts in space. There are no ultraviolet lights so it’s perfectly safe on the skin. These factors alone make it a better option than plastic surgery. So what is red light therapy and how can you use it to look younger? Read on to find out.
Red Light Therapy Explained
Red light therapy uses ultraviolet LED lights to send wavelengths of light to your skin. These powerful wavelengths are measured in nanometers. The light works to “supercharge” your skin cells and erase the signs of aging, such as age spots, wrinkles, crows feet, and more. It is also used to treat acne, blemishes, and large pores. All in all, it works to create more collagen, what your skin needs to appear young and healthy.
Can Red Light Therapy be Used at Home?
Yes. There are a number of red light therapy products on the market, such as face masks. Alternatively, you can go to a medspa for treatment. Our providers have options to target one area or you can choose being completely encapsulated in the Envy Light Capsule where your skin is improved from head to toe. This allows you to have your body treated at the same time as your face.
Can Anyone Use Red Light Therapy?
Pretty much, yes. The only individuals who shouldn’t are those taking certain medications and those who use products that cause sensitivity to light. Otherwise, anyone can use red light therapy to reduce inflammation, the appearance of scars, and other skin conditions.
How Often Can I Use Red Light Therapy?
To get the full effects of this treatment, it’s recommended to use it often. Going to a medspa instead of putting up money for the expensive equipment will mean that the staff will help you come up with a schedule that works for you. Maintaining this schedule and making it a part of your regular routine will give you a clear complexion that lasts for months.
