Red Light Therapy is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself.” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to red light wavelengths.
Red light travels in wavelengths between 630-660 nanometers (nm) and has the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, energizing fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates its overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement or an anti-aging treatment, but it actually is the result of the body healing itself. Red Light Therapy targets and treats the entire face and body because the treatment is done in a full-sized bed similar to a tanning bed.
At Beach Beauty Health Spa, we see teenagers self-treating their acne in our red light bed, mature women erasing age marks from hands, and middle aged folks reversing sun damage and erasing scars and crows feet off their faces.
Red Light Therapy has a few other applications as well: it is currently being used to treat cancer patients’ pain from chemotherapy and radiation. In northern countries where there is no sun for half the year, Red Light Therapy is used to treat depression and promote a sense of well-being.
In Miami Beach, where we all want to stay young and healthy, there is an option that does not involve pills, injections or surgery. Red Light Therapy is a great alternative if you’re looking for effective anti-aging treatments or simply want to improve the overall health of your skin. Try it yourself at Beach Beauty Health Spa! First session is on the house for local residents.
