Red Light Therapy


Red Light Therapy is a safe and natural way to take control of your health and appearance. The inherent healing properties in light are clinically proven to improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, smooth and even skin tone, and diminish sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Red Light Therapy can also improve inflammatory conditions like rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis and has the ability to speed up wound recovery.

Red Light Therapy has been used by NASA scientists for decades. It has been used to regulate astronauts’ circadian rhythms while in space – improving sleep and overall mood. Red light has even helped plants grow in space by promoting photosynthesis of plant cells.

Red light technology involves a complete mind-body-skin connection. Light and color therapy affect our mental health, which is deeply connected to our skin health. Red Light makes you feel good while restoring a youthful glow.

We use POLY Red Light Therapy because it is FDA-approved at 633 nanometers. This means that the red light has a long enough wavelength to penetrate the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) and reach the dermis (the middle layer of the skin). When a red light wavelength hits the skin, it encourages skin rejuvenation by boosting collagen production and producing a biochemical effect in cells that strengthen the mitochondria.

The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it is where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). By increasing the function of the mitochondria using Red Light Therapy, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage. Through targeted red light wavelengths, true biological change in the skin is achieved.

How long is a Red Light Therapy session?

A typical red light session is 20-30 minutes but it can be used up to 60 minutes every 24 hours based on patient needs.

Is there any downtime after treatment?

There is absolutely no downtime after a red light therapy session and patients can return to their normal lives immediately.

Can Red Light Therapy be combined with other treatments?

Yes. Red light integrates well with almost any other skincare treatment. It is great for reducing redness and inflammation after Microchanneling or a chemical peel.

Does red light need any special serums to work?

No. Red light also works well as a standalone treatment.

Is POLY Red Light Therapy FDA-approved?

POLY is FDA-cleared for the treatment of red light at 633nm.

What is the difference between Red Light Therapy and Lasers?

Red Light Therapy uses LED (light emitting diodes) technology at specific wavelengths to produce a variety of beneficial effects on the skin or body. Lasers operate similarly, however, do so using a focused beam of light. This means that lasers do not scatter and reach higher power outputs and temperatures. Lasers can only operate at one specific wavelength and cannot treat the full face or body.

Can treatments be done through clothing?

Yes, they can – but for maximum efficacy, we recommend leaving the treatment area bare for best results.

How close should the light be to the skin?

For best results, keep the POLY treatment head within six inches of the treatment area.
