Sunlight is hard on the skin and can make you look older than your actual age, but there is another type of light that can change all that. AuraSpa offers the benefits of light and energy with our LightStim® LED bed. It may sound too good to be true, yet light wave therapy has been used for decades. Even though the UV rays from sunlight can be damaging, there are other light wavelengths that have proven results in healing and rejuvenating skin.
Red Light Therapy
From dermatologist’s offices to workout gyms, red light therapy (RLT) is becoming popular due to its healing abilities and the visible difference it can make in your skin. Skin cells are hit with red light wavelengths, prompting multiple regenerative effects. These can lead to younger-looking skin and diminished scarring. Muscle repair is another benefit of red light therapy.
Professional RLT assures you of getting the correct light wavelengths needed to produce results. The light must penetrate deep enough into the skin, and this can only happen at specific wavelengths. When the proper light is applied, it can help with pain in the joints, muscle recovery and full body health.
The Advantages of RLT
There are several types of minimally invasive treatments to reduce or eliminate crow’s feet and fine lines. There are also treatments available to minimize acne scarring and hypertrophic scars. RLT addresses these issues and more.
RLT helps with skin issues for those who suffer from acne breakouts. It can be used on all skin types and all skin tones with good results. It has anti-inflammatory effects and helps lower oil production naturally. Bacteria levels are also reduced. RLT does all this without the drying effects or harsh chemicals of other skin treatments.
Collagen is one of the main components of sturdier, youthful-looking skin. As we age, collagen levels decrease and skin tone is reduced. RLT not only protects the collagen you have, it also helps stimulate new production, leading to younger-looking skin.
