Collagen Anti-Aging Red Light Therapy

Breakthrough treatments in Red Light therapy were discovered and researched by NASA, Mayo Clinic, National Institutes of Health, and the US Military. Red Light Therapy is a safe, all-natural process that encourages the body to naturally produce enzymes, elastin fibers and collagen that support the skin’s structure. Numerous benefits are continually unfolding the more and the longer this therapy is being used.

First, the most obvious is skin rejuvenation, especially on the face: wrinkles and fine lines disappear, as well as blemishes and redness, age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation; it also minimizes the size of facial pores and melts acne scars.

Second, Red Light therapy for pain relief is a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free and a chemical-free alternative that has been shown to reduce and in some cases eliminate aches and pains. This deep penetrating light is effective for herniated and bulging discs; muscle related back pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, joint pain, inflammation, nerve and sports injuries, neck pain and stiffness, and wounds. Red Light Therapy is also effective at repairing damaged skin, treating depression, killing bacteria, melting stretch marks and aiding in cancer recovery.

Third, over time, improved oxygenation and detoxification of the skin is achieved as the vascular walls of the skin’s small blood vessels are strengthened, while it also regenerates and stimulates fibroblast cells which create collagen and elastin synthesis, followed by improved natural repair and the creation of healthy skin. Red Light therapy is excellent for treatments of Psoriasis and Eczema and increases circulation throughout the entire body. Red Light Therapy helps damaged skin to heal 200% faster than without intervention.

Fourth, Red Light therapy is absorbed by the mitochondria of cells and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) for enhanced cellular vitality and permeability and improved oxygenation. The treatments are restful and comforting, and one notices more energy, a sense of well-being, and more youthful, smooth and glowing skin. It truly is a lovely anti-aging device and a treatment for anyone of any age.
