The Science

How Does Red Light Therapy Work? Similar to red light therapy, infrared light is absorbed by cells and creates energy to be used for a host of therapeutic benefits. Due to its wavelength, infrared light penetrates deep into the body’s tissues, affecting cellular processes beyond the reach of visible light.[1]

Benefits of Infrared Light Therapy Here are examples of scientifically proven benefits of infrared light therapy [1]: ✔Increases the rate of connective tissue healing and cellular regeneration to reduce inflammation ✔Creates collagen ✔Reduces full-face fine lines and wrinkles ✔Improves appearance of photodamaged skin (dark spots, age spots, sun spots) and skin tone evenness ✔Rejuvenates skin ✔Improves photoaging and wrinkles

How Does Blue Light Therapy Work? Acne can form from bacteria that live on the skin. Blue light’s specific wavelength is absorbed by porphyrins, the compounds produced by the bacteria responsible for creating acne. When porphyrins absorb blue light, they release singlet oxygen molecules that kill the bacteria, effectively reducing acne. Studies show that blue light therapy is beneficial in reducing acne.[2]

Benefits of Blue Light Therapy A scientifically backed benefit of blue light therapy is its effectiveness in treating mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne on the skin’s surface. It can also improve skin conditions like blemishes. Blue light therapy can also be used as a proactive approach to acne management through its ability to control acne and improve the skin’s appearance without harsh chemicals or prescriptions. [2]
