Skin issues like acne, rosacea and eczema can negatively affect your sense of well-being and your self-esteem. All these issues are very common problems, experienced by millions of people each year. If you are looking to reduce acne, rosacea, eczema or other skin issues, red light therapy may offer you a natural alternative or a secondary addition to your current treatment protocol.
You may be wondering what is so special about red light that it can reduce acne, rosacea, eczema and more. Here are a few reasons:
- It increases cell energy production. When your skin is exposed to visible red light (610-700nm) produced by the LED bulbs usually used in red light therapy, it penetrates 8 to 10 mm through the top layer of skin cells, where it can actually stimulate the mitochondria of your cells, increasing their energy production and healthy function, leading to natural healing and repair at a cellular level.
- It alleviates redness. Redness in the skin is one of the most challenging problems to solve, but red light can help alleviate this problem and produce a noticeable reduction of skin redness like pimples, swelling and even flaking with as little as 2 minutes per week of exposure.
- It has no known side effects. You have nothing to lose by trying it!
Red light therapy has been shown to reduce acne, rosacea, eczema and other skin issues like facial flushing, persistent redness, bumps, pimples, raised red patches, and even eye irritation. It does not cure challenging skin conditions, but can reduce generalized skin redness effectively and naturally, which is a great feeling for people who have been struggling to control the symptoms of their skin conditions.
