Red Light Therapy (RLT)

Red Light Therapy works using the natural healing power of light to treat numerous skin issues utilizing the latest LED technology. Red Light Therapy emits the correct wavelengths and has a high enough power density to reap the benefits that RLT is known for. Exposing light to the skin surface activates the skins photoreceptors and lets the cells absorb its energy. It accelerates cell biochemical circulation and stimulates the production of collagen. 

Red Light Therapy (RLT)

RLT decreases skin inflammation, smooths skin tone, repairs sun damage, fades scars and stretch marks, builds collagen in the skin.

These wavelengths do not damage the skin and are thought to be absorbed by the skin up to 10 millimeters.. a lot deeper than creams or serums. It works by stimulating the mitochondria in our skin cells. Mitochondria are the power plants of your cells that turn food and oxygen into energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Stimulated mitochondria are thought to produce more ATP, and thus helps generate cell function, regenerate and repair themselves more efficiently. Stem cells may also be activated by RLT which promotes tissue repair and healing.

RLT consultations are recommended and complimentary.

Although Z Cosmetic Design, LLC incorporates RLT into facials and MicroNeedling to enhance collagen induction therapy there are many other benefits to Red Light Therapy. 

The Healthline Newsletter states that additional research suggest that RLT professionals report the following benefits:

  •  promotes wound healing and tissue repair
  • improves hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia
  • help the short term treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • stimulates healing of slow-healing wounds, like diabetic foot ulcers
  • reduces psoriasis lesions
  • aids in short-term relief from pain and stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis
  • reduces some of the side effects of cancer treatments, including oral mucositis
  • Improves skin complexion and builds collagen to diminish wrinkles
  • prevents recurring cold sores from herpes simplex virus infections
  • improves the health of joints in people with degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee
  • relieves pain and inflammation in people with pain in the Archilles tendons
