Red Light Therapy also known as Collagen Light Therapy
From our late 20’s onwards, collagen diminshes in our bodies at a rate of about 1.5% a year. Once this process starts, the signs of ageing begin to appear – wrinkles, aches and pains that are often unexplained. All these are indicators of a depletion of collagen in our bodies.
Temporary treatments such as collagen enhanced creams are available, but they only penetrate the top few layers of skin. As we naturally shed skin everyday, we loose the benefit of the cream quite quickly.
Red light therapy penetrates the skin by 8 – 10 mm, thus having a deeper and consequently longer lasting effect. It encourages the formation of new capillaries in the skin, which then aid with the removal of toxins and help damage skin, speeding up the healing process. It also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a protein with a high elasticity level. This helps keep the skin supple and gives a rejuvenated youthful look.
These lamps do not produce UV Light and will not produce a tan.
