Is red light therapy safe?


Yes. Hundreds of research studies have shown red light therapy to be safe and effective. The light that is used falls within a safe parameter (660nm and 850nm) where it does not have the capability to cause any damage. Red light therapy is also known as Photobiomodulation Therapy (PMT). PMT is non-invasive, non-toxic and non-thermal. Unlike other forms of radiation, red and infrared light is beneficial rather than harmful to tissue.


Will red light therapy help my skin?


Yes. Red light therapy can reduce wrinkles and fine lines, eliminate sun spots, fade scars and stretch marks and heal blemishes in many cases. You will not get a tan from red light therapy, nor does it expose you to damaging UV rays.


Do I need to wear eye protection while using red light therapy? 


No. It is not required that you wear eye protection but the light is very bright and may be uncomfortable for some individuals, especially those that have light sensitivities. It is recommended to not look directly into the light diodes, just like any light.


How much does red light therapy cost?


We have a range of light therapy panels to suit most budgets. 


What is the best red light therapy panel for me?


If you are looking to heal a specific area such as treating your face daily a smaller panel will work for you. A full body panel is the ideal way to treat your whole body head to toe. Top of the line wellness studios will have 360 degree coverage for very fast and powerful whole body sessions.


How do I use red light therapy?


Easy. Just turn it on and expose the treatment area approximately 6” away from the light. You will want bare skin exposed. This means that if you are doing a whole body session you will want to be naked.


How often can I use red light therapy?


Daily. For a whole body session do 10 mins facing the panel and 10 mins with your back to the panel. For specific problem areas, do treatments up to 20 mins.
