Red light therapy (RLT) aims to solve skin issues by using low wavelength red light. Many experts believe that it can help with issues such as skin conditions, scarring, and signs of aging — including wrinkles and age spots.There is some evidence to back up many of these claims, but RLT is no miracle cure.
RLT is a straightforward procedure involving exposing the body to low wavelength red light. Low-level laser light therapy is another name for the process, though RLT may be more common.This red light is natural and can penetrate deep into the skin, where the cells can absorb and use it.
As a study in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery notes, mitochondria in the skin cells can absorb these light particles. This can help the cells produce more adenosine triphosphate, which is the energy source for all cells.
Many experts attribute the potential positive benefits of RLT to this function. With this extra energy, the cells may be able to respond better to damage and rejuvenate themselves.

There are several potential benefits of RLT, find out more below!
Most people show interest in RLT as a possible way to improve skin health. The potential for using RLT as a way to rejuvenate the skin has led to a large number of studies. As the review in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery notes, RLT may help rejuvenate the skin by:
As the review in Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery also notes, forms of light therapy are potential alternatives for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
RLT, either alone or in combination with other treatments such as blue light therapy, is a potentially effective treatment for acne vulgaris. The light appears to penetrate deep into the skin and affect sebum production while also reducing inflammation and irritation in the area.
Red light may also be helpful in speeding up wound healing. Research in the journal Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia highlights the fact that light therapy may help wound healing in a few ways, such as by:
A small study in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy explored the effect of low-level light on people with alopecia.
The study revealed that people who received RLT had improved hair density, compared with those in a control group.
The authors note that the effect was beneficial when people applied light in wavelengths of both 665 nanometres (nm) and 808 nm. However, this was a smaller study, and more extensive clinical studies will help give backing to these claims.
RLT may also be an effective treatment for pain in people with certain conditions.
A review in the European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine compiled the results of many studies surrounding RLT and musculoskeletal disorders.
The research indicated that RLT could effectively reduce pain in adults with different musculoskeletal disorders. The researchers note that practitioners who stick to the specific dosage recommendations seem to increase the effectiveness of the therapy.
A review in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology examines the potential for RLT in treating facial bone defects. The researchers’ results indicate that RLT may help accelerate healing after treatment for facial bone defects. The review also notes that the therapy helped reduce inflammation and pain during the process.
However, the researchers did call for a more standardized approach to determine whether or not the therapy is effective.
As research in the journal AIMS Biophysics notes, many of the conditions that RLT treats have their roots in inflammation.
Although the exact reason is not yet clear, RLT has significant anti-inflammatory effects in the body. These effects are both local, where practitioners apply the light, and systemic, in other tissues and organs in the body.
The researchers explain that the helpful anti-inflammatory effects of RLT, and the potential uses for this therapy, are abundant.
Further research may help us understand if it can help with chronic inflammatory issues such as:
Again, the research is still preliminary. However, the anti-inflammatory effect of RLT is very promising.
The researchers explain that the helpful anti-inflammatory Potential side effects. RLT is a completely natural process. It exposes the skin to levels of light that are not harmful — unlike UV light coming from the sun. Because of this, there is virtually no risk of side effects from undergoing RLT. However, a practitioner with little experience or people who expose themselves to too much of the treatment may cause tissue and cell damage.
Products for use at home may also lead to misuse, causing damage to the skin, burns, or damage to unprotected eyes.

Cupping is like a reverse massage – instead of pushing into the tissue, it pulls. Treatment involves placing cups onto the skin to create a vacuum which helps to increase blood and Qi flow, loosen fascia, stimulate healing and remove toxins.The detoxifying effect on skin and circulatory system is also significant, with a visible improvement in skin color. Cupping removes toxins and improves blood flow through the veins and arteries. Especially useful for athletes is cupping’s potential to relieve muscle spasms.Learn More
By releasing sonic energy, an ultrasonic cavitation handpiece allows for the disruption of cellular membranes in adipocytes, or fat cells. The high pressure of the ultrasound waves upon the adipocytes causes a collapse in the cells, and the fatty contents of the cells subsequently leak out into the spaces between cells.Learn More
Crystal healing is an energy-based system. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when this becomes stagnant, unbalanced, or blocked, it can cause illness. The premise is that crystals help unblock, balance, and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way.Learn More
