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 in wavelengths between 630-660 nm (nanometers) has the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, energizing fibroblast cells that make collagen and elastin production. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates the skin’s overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement, 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, as well as mature women erasing age marks from hands, and middle aged folks reversing sun damage, erasing scars and crows feet off their faces.
Red Light Therapy 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. First session is on the house for local residents.
