Red light therapy works on the skin by using specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the skin's natural healing and regeneration processes.

Here are the key ways in which red light operates:

  • Cellular Energy Activation: Red light can penetrate the surface layers of the skin, reaching deeper layers. It primarily targets an enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase in the mitochondria, helping to increase cellular energy production (ATP). Higher ATP production enables cells to function more effectively, including speeding up repair and proliferation.
  • Collagen and Elastin Production: Red light therapy aids in improving skin elasticity and structure by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin appear younger.
  • Anti-inflammatory Effects: Red light therapy has the ability to reduce skin inflammation, which is particularly beneficial for conditions like acne, psoriasis, and lupus erythematosus. It helps reduce redness and irritation by decreasing the activity and number of inflammatory cells.
  • Enhanced Blood Flow: Red light also enhances local blood circulation, which helps better deliver oxygen and nutrients to skin cells while aiding in the removal of waste and toxins.
