How Does Red-Light Therapy Benefit Neurochemicals?
Red light therapy is a 100% natural, drug free, chemical free, non-invasive, non-ablative (doesn't damage the skin), and painless treatment. It's safe for all skin types and all ages with no adverse side effects. And yes, it works!
It has been proven effective for a wide range of healing and rejuvenating uses including anti-aging, hair loss prevention & regrowth, skin conditions, wound care, pain relief, and much more.
So how does Red-Light Therapy benefit neurochemicals?
Visible red light is capable of penetrating the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 mm. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level and kicking off a whole series of metabolic events.
Red-Light Therapy stimulates mitochondria within the cell, increasing production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) causing damaged cells to accept nutrients and eliminate toxins faster. ATP is an energy-bearing molecule found in all living cells. Formation of nucleic acids, transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, and many other energy-consuming reactions of metabolism are made possible by the energy in ATP molecules.
As we age we produce less collagen (the building block of skin structure) which results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red-light therapy penetrates deep into the dermis layer, stimulating cells that produce collagen. New collagen moves to the surface of the skin to smooth and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Red-Light Therapy increases lymphatic system activity. Research shows that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of Red-Light Therapy.
Lastly Red-Light Therapy increases Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide is an important signaling molecule known to signal every cell in the body to "do it's job", protect against cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes, improve blood flow, fight infection, and reduce lactic acid build up.
