Red light therapy involves exposing the body to low levels of red or near-infrared light, stimulating cellular energy production and showing potential benefits in areas such as anti-inflammation, tissue repair, and skin health. It is used for various wellness applications, with the light influencing cellular processes to promote health and healing.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy treatment reduces swelling and inflammation after surgery and can enhance post-op healing. Red light therapy is thought to work by acting on the “power plant” in your body’s cells called mitochondria. With more energy, other cells can work more efficiently to repair the skin, boost new cell growth, and enhance skin rejuvenation.

Red Light Therapy Candidates

Red light therapy is well-suited for individuals seeking non-invasive solutions to boost cellular energy, alleviate inflammation, expedite tissue repair, and enhance overall skin health. It is particularly beneficial for those with musculoskeletal issues, inflammatory conditions, or anyone embracing natural approaches to wellness. 

Ideal candidates may include individuals aiming to:

  • Heal wounds
  • Address facial texture
  • Help with eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis
  • Rejuvenate sun-damaged skin
  • Diminish acne and breakouts

The Red Light Therapy Treatment

Your red light treatment will begin with a technician cleansing your skin and applying the in-office medical-grade device to your treatment area. The red light therapy device will then emit red light wavelengths to the targeted skin areas that you want to improve. Treatment times may vary. The amount of time that the treatment takes will depend on your targeted area, skin condition, and skin goals.

Red Light Therapy Recovery

After red light therapy treatment, you should not feel any physical symptoms. Your results from red light therapy may take some time to gradually develop on the skin. Your collagen and elastin production can take several weeks to naturally increase and make visible skin changes. For the best results, multiple red light therapy sessions are recommended. The number of red light therapy sessions that you require will depend on your skin concerns and your desired results. Your skincare specialist at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery will leave you detailed instructions on how to prepare for treatment and any proper aftercare required to achieve optimal results.
