Red light therapy (RLT) is a non-invasive treatment that uses red or near infrared light to help heal muscles, skin, or other parts of the body. It is different from laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies because it does not damage the surface of the skin. Instead, it sends low-intensity red and near-infrared light to body cells to stimulate healing. The light emitted by the RLT penetrates about 5 millimeters below the surface of the skin.
This red light is natural and can penetrate deep into the skin, where cells can absorb and use it. A part of cells called mitochondria, sometimes called “energy generators” of cells, absorbs it and produces more energy. Some experts believe that this helps cells repair and become healthier.Red light therapy can increase the number of mitochondria and also improve their function in the cell. It is non-invasive, painless and does not use heat.
Many experts believe it can help with problems such as skin conditions, scars and signs of aging, including wrinkles and age spots.A high-quality device such as a Joovv is designed to support healthier sleep, reduce inflammation, healthy skin and improve recovery, among other aspects of a healthy lifestyle. Red light therapy helps soothe and diminish redness, and minimize the production of oil and bacteria in the skin.The Go 2.0 or Mini 3.0 are an incredible option for those who want to use red light therapy at home to target specific areas of the body, while the Joovv Solo 3.0 is larger and can be used to treat a wider area of the body. Joovv has a full line of medical-grade red light therapy devices that are suitable for the home, including The Go 2.0 or Mini 3.0, which are best for smaller, more targeted treatments, and moderate to full body options ranging from the Joovv Solo 3.0, the cornerstone of the modular system, to the light more large therapy configuration, the Joovv Elite 3.0 which is composed of six Solos.Differences t30 − t0 between red light technology (RLT) and energizing light technology (ELT) decrease with increasing reference values. Spectral dose distributions of light sources with energizing light technology (ELT) and red light technology (RLT).
Watch this video to see how a red light therapy treatment impacts cellular function.When using this type of treatment, a person can see the red light and feel the warmth of near-infrared (NIR) light. The use of LED light sources with wavelengths of 590, 633 and 830 nm for photorejuvenation with athermic light has grown rapidly in recent years.Unlike ultraviolet (UV) light that causes cancer from the sun or tanning booths, RLT does not use this type of light. There are no established guidelines for how long or intensity red light therapy should be applied, so there is a slight likelihood of adverse effects.Red Light Therapy is an incredible way to improve your health and wellbeing without any invasive procedures or harsh chemicals. It can help you look younger by reducing wrinkles and age spots while also helping you feel better by reducing inflammation and improving sleep quality.
