Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy (RLT), sometimes called cold laser therapy, is used to treat many cosmetic issues such as wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Additionally, it has applications such as treating psoriasis, slow-healing wounds, and the side effects of chemotherapy.
RLT is different from lasers or intense pulsated light (IPL) because it doesn’t cause damage to the skin. Light from red, low-level wavelengths emitted from light-emitting diodes (LEDs) work by creating a biochemical effect within cells, which strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are where each cell generates its energy. Thus, by increasing the mitochondria’s strength, we can improve the overall energy output of each cell treated with RLT. This gently stimulates regeneration only a few millimeters below the skin’s surface.
