Lighting the Way for Quicker, Safer Healing

Originating Technology/ NASA Contribution Who’s to say that a little light can’t go a long way? Tiny light-emitting diode (LED) chips used to grow plants in space are lighting the way for cancer treatment, wound healing, and chronic pain alleviation on Earth. In 1993, Quantum Devices, Inc. (QDI), of Barneveld, Wisconsin, began developing the HEALSContinue reading

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

The main benefits of red light therapy are thought to have come from the energy exchange. The responses of cells and tissues to red light therapy, which does not itself produce much heat, can be comparable to the body’s reaction to heat. Certain wavelengths of red light can penetrate beyond the skin’s surface, where itContinue reading

What Is Red Light Therapy Used For

This means that painful, swollen spots may be reduced in size and the lymphatic system can more efficiently clear away waste products, which could prevent the build-up of spot-causing products within the skin. ItContinue reading

Types of Red Light Therapy

There are a few different ways that you can treat yourself with red light therapy. Some salons offer a tanning bed-style red light therapy machine, which looks very similar to a sunbed.

Red light therapy is generally tolerated very well, although results will vary between people and some conditions will respond better than others. Red Light Therapy Side Effects   ItContinue reading

How does red light therapy work?

Red light is thought to work by producing a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it’s where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP(adenosine triphosphate). By increasing the function of the mitochondriaContinue reading

What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy (RLT) is a controversial therapeutic technique that uses red low-level wavelengths of light to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, among other conditions. In the early 1990s, RLT was used by scientists to help grow plants in space. The scientists found that the intense light from red light-emittingContinue reading
