Improve Your Health with Red Light Therapy

Although your body is constantly aging, it’s also constantly renewing itself. The cells that make up your blood, muscles, bones, and skin multiply, divide, and die off to make room for new cells. This happens at a different pace for each type of cell, and some struggle in the middle of their life cycles if they become damaged by disease, injury, or environmental factors. When this happens, it shows in your dry, wrinkly skin, and you feel it in your achy joints and muscles.

At Harmony Aesthetics Center in Los Angeles, California, we’re helping women and men fight the aging process and optimize their overall health by rejuvenating their bodies at the cellular level with red light therapy. Here’s how it works.

The science behind red light therapy

About 30 years ago, when astronauts learned they could grow plants in space with the help of red light, researchers began to explore what this intense light could do for the human body. It turns out, red light stimulates a biological reaction inside your cells. More specifically, it triggers a reaction in the mitochondria, which is the organelle inside each cell that generates energy. 

This boost of energy helps your cells function more efficiently and repair any damage they’ve sustained. That means fresher-looking skin, faster healing, and less pain.

Red light is safe for your skin. It doesn’t burn, and it doesn’t expose you to harmful UV rays like the sun or a tanning bed. But it does penetrate the layers of your skin to target certain cells, depending on your needs.

Our team of experienced health care professionals skillfully adjusts the wavelengths of the red light therapy in your treatment to address various surface issues, such as acne, age spots, scars, or textural issues like dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. But the benefits of red light therapy can go even deeper.

How red light therapy affects your overall health

What short wavelengths (650 nanometers) of red light does for your skin, longer wavelengths (850 nanometers) does for tissues that lie deeper within, like your muscles, joints, and bones. While large-scale studies are still investigating the scope of what red light can do, evidence suggests that the therapy is promising and may be able to treat or improve:

At Harmony Aesthetics Center, our goal is to help you achieve total wellness and balance, and red light therapy is one of the most effective ways to do that. Red light therapy allows you to address cosmetic issues that may be affecting your confidence and self-esteem, and it also offers physical relief from chronic pain, slow-healing wounds, and inflammation. No other therapy can deliver such comprehensive care in a safe, noninvasive treatment.
