How Red-Light Therapy Works

Red-Light therapy is used to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, among other conditions.

The “Red Light” of Red-Light Therapy is composed of red and near infrared wavelengths. Your skin is exposed to this combined light for therapeutic benefits. As this light hit’s your skin it facilitates the release of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) The released ATP is critical for the storage of energy in cells and helps improve the bodies cellular functioning, by rejuvenating themselves, and repair damage This process greatly improves your overall health and wellness.

Red-Light Therapy differs from laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies as these therapies cause controlled damage to the skin surface. This damage then stimulates regeneration and repair to the damaged skin surface. Red-Light Therapy does not cause damage to the surface of the skin but penetrates approximately 5mm below the surface of the skin and helps stimualte regeneration.

This treatment has been scientifically proven and is a non-invasive way to treat and prevent many different diseases.

 

5 Benefits of Red-Light Therapy.

1. Facilitates Improved Sleep.

Circadian rhythms:

The natural cycle of physical, mental, and behaviour changes that the body goes through in a 24-hour cycle. Circadian rhythms are mostly affected by light and darkness and are controlled by a small area in the middle of the brain (the hypothalamus). They can affect sleep, body temperature, hormones, appetite, and other body functions. Abnormal circadian rhythms may be linked to obesity, diabetes, depression, bipolar disorder, seasonal effective disorder, and sleep disorders such as insomnia. Circadian rhythm is sometimes called the “body’s clock.” –   NCI Dictionary.

Using red light therapy regularly for a prescribed period of time has been shown to reset the body’s internal clock (circadian rhythms) and significantly improve your quality of sleep and daytime alertness. Reduced sleep is also associated with reduced digestion. With regular red light therapy digestion is improved.

 

2. Facilitates Skin Rejuvenation.

Red-Light therapy is most commonly used on the face for skin rejuvenation and repair but can be used over the entire body.

With the release of more ATP in your cells, the cells subsequently have more energy and this increased cell functionality can reduce skin pigmentation, increase elasticity, and improve complexion. As well as the beauty benefits, red light is also thought to promote cellular repair, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation.

– You will see a reduction in wrinkles and an increase in elasticity.

– The regeneration process will be sped up, leading to healthier skin.

Red -Light therapy is also beneficial in treating acne scarring as it penetrates deep below the skins surface and relieves and repairs the skin tissue. Red Light therapy becomes an activation agent and enhances the use of skincare creams and anti-aging products.

 

3. Helps Relieve Chronic Pain.

By penetrating the skin Red-light Therapy facilitates faster healing of deep tissues and improves the circulation of oxygenated blood in the body thus relieving pain.

Red-Light therapy facilitates improved circulation, reduced tissue inflammation and helps relieve joint stiffness resulting in the reduction of Chronic pain.

 

4. Improves Mental Health.

By stimulating or boosting serotonin and dopamine Red-Light therapy can be used to increase mental wellness during your normal day and especially during stressful periods.

Psychiatric studies have shown that the release of melanopsin, the colour sensitive receptor for red light, has been shown to help lift mood, thus increasing self-esteem.⁠ This is interesting because melanopsin is naturally produced in our brain cells, which is the reason why it has an antidepressant effect – “AB aesthetic bureau”

With the stimulation of melatonin, a sleep hormone, as already discussed Red-Light therapy aides in the promotion of sleep and of course this drastically improves mental wellness.

 

5. Boosts Metabolism

Red-Light Therapy facilitates improved blood circulation within the body, and this stimulates the body’s metabolic system. As the delivery of greater quantities of oxygen to muscles, the oxygen stimulates muscle movement, which activates the body’s metabolic system

Increased circulation provides muscles with more energy, thus you will feel less tired and more energised throughout the day. This will improve your feeling of wellbeing and allow you to achieve more in your day.

Increased movement will help reduce chronic pain.

 


 

Infra-Red Sauna’s

Infra-Red Sauna Flourish Wellness and Care

Saunas are used to warm the body and ultimately make us sweat. Sweating in a comfortable environment releases tension, helps our muscles relax and improves our mental wellbeing.

Traditional saunas heat the surrounding air which warms the body. Raising the body’s core temperature allows us to stimulate healing processes within the body.

As in Red-Light Therapy the infra-red light or wavelength penetrates the skin surface and heats the body without heating the surrounding air.

 

There are many benefits to Infra-Red Saunas: Here are a few examples.

1. Removal of Toxins from the Body

Raising the core temperature causes the body to sweat. This deep sweating can help reduce the levels of Mercury, Zinc, Copper, Lead, Nickel, and chemicals. Flushing these toxins from our body will enhance our health.

 

2. Reduces the Incidence of Illnesses

Raising the body’s core temperature creates white blood cells faster. White blood cells are necessary to kill viruses and help fight illnesses. Allergies, colds, and sinus congestion can also be relieved with the use of a sauna.

 

3. Helps Reduce Stress

Raising the body’s core temperature helps to reset our hormone circadian rhythm.  Relaxing reduces the level of cortisol (Stress hormone) found in our blood during periods of anxiety/stress. Prolonged high levels of cortisol can lead to skin that bruises easily, fast weight gain, muscle weakness, diabetes, lack of sleep and many other immune health issues.

Relaxation stimulates Serotonin (the hormone that regulates happiness, mood and anxiety) which makes us feel good.

 

4. Aids in the Cleansing of our Skin.

Raising the body’s core temperature causes deep sweating, which helps to replace dead skin cells. Sweating flushes bacteria out of the sweat ducks and epidermal layer of the skin. Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve capillary circulation, while giving the skin a healthy glow.

 

5. Aids in the Burning of Calories.

The act of deep sweating uses significant amounts of energy. The body’s use of energy to sweat burns calories.

That energy is derived from the conversion of fat and carbohydrates in a bodily process that burns up calories. According to U.S. Army medical research (Ward Dean, M.D.), “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna in a single session, consuming nearly 300 calories in the process.” The body consumes said calories due to the acceleration of heart activity As heart activity increases and as these processes demand more oxygen, the body begins to convert more calories into usable energy. – “finnleo.com”
