If there is one universal desire, it would be to have flawless skin.
We spend our teenage years desperately trying to hide, cover up or heal acne quicker as our hormones change and then spend our later years attempting to halt signs of aging.
On top of this, the skincare industry was worth over $130 billion in 2020, and is rapidly increasing.
So how can red light therapy contribute to improving skin conditions? This blog has all you need to know.
How does it work?
Red light therapy provides more energy to the mitochondria in our cells, meaning that our cells can function more effectively and efficiently.
For the cells of the skin, this energy boost means faster cellular turnover, faster skin repair and enhancing skin rejuvenation.
Overall skin health is improved by:
Increased fibroblast production – which stimulates collagen production
Improving blood circulation
Improving skin structure, strength and elasticity
Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can also be treated with red light therapy. Psoriasis and eczema affect millions of people worldwide. Recent studies have shown that red light therapy can be effectively used to reduce itchiness and redness as well as reducing inflammation.
Psoriasis is a complex autoimmune disease with no known cure, which means that sufferers can only manage the symptoms of the disease. Creams and ointments show limited effectively and medications used to treat these conditions have shown unwanted risks and side effects.
Lets look at some clinical studies!
In 2010, a clinical trial was performed on psoriasis sufferers, where patients were treated with red light therapy for a period of 4-5 weeks. The findings showed that:
All patients had reduced inflammation
Patients noted a 60% - 100% psoriasis clearance rate
Universal satisfaction of treatment
In 2017, researchers noted that red light therapy was able to reduce allergy-related cells, dead skin cells that build up on the epidermis and reduce skin thickness in mice with eczema. This led to:
Restored skin barriers
Significantly reduced skin lesions
In all clinical studies performed on the treatment of the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, red light therapy has documented a reduction in inflammation, reduction in itching and pain and sped up healing.
Patients report no negative side effects, and found the treatment safe, natural and easy to use. Patients also consistently report that using red light therapy to treat these skin conditions offer larger and more noticeable improvements that prescription drugs and invasive procedures.
