Non-invasive, safe and effective with proven scientific studies:

  • Numerous studies show NIR Red Light therapy doesn’t just treat symptoms of PAIN and INFLAMMATION (2, 3); it HEALS inflammation, which is the underlying cause of many conditions. NIR light therapy is effective at reducing chronic inflammatory pain including carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain due to osteoarthritis, and acute and chronic low back pain(10,11)
  • REVERSE skin aging(7,8), reduce fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots. Increases collagen production(9), restores firmness and elasticity(6), and reduces acne(14). Most studies show about 6 to 12 weeks of consistent therapy for optimal results in skin rejuvenation
  • It promotes a healthy circadian rhythm (natural sleep/wake cycle). The hypothalamus, which is responsible for circadian rhythm, is highly photosensitive. NIR RED Light STIMULATES MELATONIN production, which aids in getting quality sleep
  • NIR Red Light has neuroprotective effects on BRAIN CELLS. It reduces oxidative stress (which is linked to neurodegenerative disorders like ALZHEIMER’s disease(12,13)), and stimulates normal neurogenesis (birth of new brain cells), which aids in healing from traumatic brain injury
  • It boosts MALE SEXUAL and reproductive health. It has been shown to stimulate energy production in Leydig cells, which produce TESTOSTERONE
  • NIR light therapy promotes WOUND HEALING(1) through increased transient inflammation (the healthy temporary immune response to injury), increased blood flow, and regulated collagen production that encourages growth of normal tissue rather than scar tissue(4).
  • It can regulate BONE GROWTH and accelerate BONE REPAIR (5). It also activates stem cells, which are crucial to the immune response as well as to healthy wound healing
  • REGROWS HAIR in those with androgenic alopecia, red light grows new, thicker, denser hair by stimulating follicles[9].

 

The shortest wavelength the human eye can detect in the spectrum of visible light is around 380 nanometers (nm), which our brains perceive as the color violet.

Red and NIR light therapy involves shining concentrated wavelengths of light between 620nm to 850nm onto bare skin. The treatment relies on light photons interacting with light-sensitive molecules within each cell. This (through ATP production) energizes all cells irradiated by the light. Cell-protecting factors such as antioxidants are released to counteract cell degeneration from inflammation. Thus the other cells are able to perform their functions more efficiently, including repair and regeneration. This heightened functionality has anti-aging benefits as well as the ability to treat the underlying causes of many diseases and disorders!

NIR light therapy is very safe. It doesn't emit enough heat to be dangerous to humans. Infrared saunas, for example, are safe since they use NIR light. They are pleasantly warm, but do not generate heat that could damage cells. Low-level light therapy set in the NIR range likewise does not generate heat that causes damage. You may feel slight warmth during treatment, but it’s a pleasant.

Low-level light therapy is safe and no studies have shown adverse effects from short- OR long-term use.
