What to know about Red Light Therapy
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.
Anyone who is uncertain about whether or not RLT is right for them should talk to their doctor.
How it works
Improving skin health
RLT may help rejuvenate the skin by:
increasing collagen production in the skin, which gives the skin its elasticity
increasing fibroblast production, which helps produce collagen and other tissue fibers
increasing circulation between blood and tissue cells
protecting cells from damage
increasing mRNA in the cells, which helps stimulate the cell
improving facial texture
reducing fine lines
reducing wrinkle severity
The researchers found that these light therapies could:
rejuvenate the skin
improve the complexion
improve the feeling of the skin
These results show the potential for the therapy but are not conclusive evidence that it will work in every case.
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 highlights the fact that light therapy may help wound healing in a few ways, such as by:
reducing inflammation in the cells
stimulating new blood vessels to form, which doctors call angiogenesis
increasing helpful fibroblasts in the skin
increasing collagen production in the skin
More studies in humans can help confirm these results.
As research in the journal AIMS BiophysicsTrusted Source notes, many of the conditions that RLT treats have their roots in inflammation.
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 may help with chronic inflammatory issues such as:
type 2 diabetes
autoimmune thyroiditis, or inflammation of the thyroid
tendinitis, or inflammation of the tendons
Again, the research is still preliminary. However, the anti-inflammatory effect of RLT is very promising.
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.
