Red Light Therapy is a new skin care device I have been trying lately and I am ALL for it! It is so easy and is best if you do it 3-5 times a week. Red Light Therapy (RLT) is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) which works to reverse signs of aging, fight stubborn acne, reduce scarring and improve texture. This works by penetrating levels down into the skin unlike face masks or peels that are directly on the skin. These devices are used personally, in spas, skin care clinics and by dermatologists. Red Light Therapy uses two wave lengths – red light at 660nm and near-infrared light (NIR) at 850nm which have the ability to give therapeutic benefits on a cellular level. I have been using my Koze Red Light Therapy device once the kids are down for bed or while we are cuddled up watching a Netflix episode!
4 Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Aid acne and reduce scars
This is one of the top reasons someone chooses this cosmetic therapy! Almost everyone struggles with acne at some point in their life and with maskne being a big problem for even the people with the best skin everyone can benefit from RLT. Other treatments are more invasive on the skin and can work for some types of acne but not others, with LED light therapy it is easy on the skin and involves zero contact. There is no recovery after each session so it is easy to fit in any point in your day and routine. Red light has been show to kill off acne causing bacteria and has anti-inflammatory benefits!
Reverse Aging Skin
Red and near-infrared treatments have shown in studies to be able to reduce fine lines, skin texture and wrinkles. This light therapy helps to increase production of collagen which I talk about with other skin care products that help create that youthful appearance. The regeneration process is hard to restart but with the right product combination you can see crazy results!
Speeds up wound healing
Since this Koze is able to be used anywhere on the body (not just on the face) wound healing can be taken care of. Anything from simple cuts to surgeries (think c-section mamas), just sit with the light near the wound. The collagen production and anti-inflammation helps healing and prevent or reduce scaring. Also can help with the prevention of infection by healing wounds quickly.
Reduce APPEARANCE of stretch marks
Stretch marks can be very defeating to many peoples image of themselves. While I believe everyone and their skin is beautiful, that is not necessarily an outlook I even have on myself some days. As a mama I know how hard it can be to love the body that gave you babies and still hate the stretch marks and want them gone. Since stretch marks do not only come from babies this therapy is for everyone. Let the red light penetrate deep into the layers of skin and start healing from the inside, out!
