Red light therapy (RLT) is a treatment that can help skin, muscle tissue, and other parts of your body heal. It exposes you to low levels of red (or near-infrared) light. Infrared light is a type of energy your eyes can’t see, but your body can feel. Red light is similar to infrared, but you can see it.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
With red light therapy, you expose your skin to a lamp, device, or laser with a red light. The mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cells, soaks it up to make more energy. Experts say this helps cells repair themselves and become healthier. This spurs healing in skin and muscle tissue.
Red light therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. This red light is natural and can penetrate deep into the skin, where the cells can absorb and use it. It’s not the same type of light used in tanning booths and it doesn’t expose your skin to damaging UV rays.
