Improved skin health is one of the most popular uses for red light therapy. The skin is the body’s biggest organ and plays a critical role in overall health. It’s the barrier that protects your body from the outside world.

The potential for using red light therapy as a way to rejuvenate the skin has led to a large number of studies. As the review in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery notes, red light therapy may help rejuvenate the skin by:

  • Increasing collagen production in the skin, which gives the skin its elasticity
  • Increasing fibroblast production, which helps produce collagen and other tissue fibers
  • Increasing circulation between blood and tissue cells
  • Protecting cells from damage
  • Increasing mRNA in the cells, which helps stimulate the cell
  • Improving Mitochondrial function
  • Improving facial texture
  • Reducing fine lines
  • Reducing wrinkle severity

Red light therapy is a safe, natural, non invasive, alternative to drugs and chemical treatments.
