It is non-invasive treatment and does not contain ultraviolet rays. Waves from the infrared spectrum to penetrate skin tissue to a depth of up to 10 millimeters.  
 
 This extra energy helps skin cells increase production of new collagen and enhance turnover of collagen and elastin fibers – key components for skin renewal.

The Science

Red Light technology is based on the benefits of exposing the skin to the Sun's renewing Red Rays. Red Light Rays are the highest of the visible Light Rays. Red Light Skin Rejuvenation accelerates skin healing by penetrating the bottom of the skin's dermis layer and into the subcutaneous fatty layers. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin proteins, increasing the skin's metabolism of healthy oxygen and nutritional molecules.

This gentle, yet extremely effective treatment is also very beneficial as an anti-aging and skin rejuvenation tool, aiding in fading sunspots, and hyper pigmentation by stimulating the skin cells vitality and permeability. Red Light Full Body Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin firming alternative, helping maintain elasticity and firmness while refining its texture and smoothing lines and wrinkles.

 By now, you might be wondering if Beauty Angel red light therapy is really suitable for everyone to try. The simple answer is that, yes, this treatment is perfectly fine for every skin type, and it’s considered harmless. However, if you’re pregnant, if you have been diagnosed with low blood pressure, if you have a sensitivity to light, if you are taking medications that make you more sensitive to light, or if you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, red light therapy isn’t appropriate for you.

RLT exposes the body to low wavelength red light.

RLT is a straightforward procedure involving exposing the body to low wavelength red light. Low-level laser light therapy is another name for the process, though RLT may be more common.

This red light is natural and can penetrate deep into the skin, where the cells can absorb and use it.

As a study in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery notes, mitochondria in the skin cells can absorb these light particles. This can help the cells produce more adenosine triphosphate, which is the energy source for all cells.

Many experts attribute the potential positive benefits of RLT to this function. With this extra energy, the cells may be able to respond better to damage and rejuvenate themselves.

WE TRIED Light Lounge LED light therapy facial treatment

WE WENT TO The Facialist, City Works Depot, Auckland

WHAT IT'S FOR Non-invasive skin rejuvenation, anti-ageing and sun damage. According to The Facialist's website it promises to repair and rejuvenate the skin, reduce lines and wrinkles, boost collagen production, improve skin tone and texture, heals wounds faster, treats acne, dermatitis, eczema and rosacea and encourages skin's production of hyaluronic acid (hydration boosting).

SEAL OF APPROVAL Katy Perry, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Kelly Rowland and the Kardashians are all known to regularly use LED light therapy.

* This week we tried: Bespoke facial

 

PREP FACTOR Nothing - on arrival you're left to cream cleanse your skin so it's all clear to receive maximum benefit.

OUR EXPERIENCE It has my vote! Not only was it fast and neither invasive or messy, it was truly relaxing and I left feeling glowing and energised, inside and out.

After cleansing your skin, you settle into a comfy chair, put your feet up, close your eyes and totally relax for 20 minutes while the LED panels do their thing.

PAIN FACTOR Definitely no pain. Your eyes may take a moment to adjust to the very bright light even through closed lids, but after that it's just lovely and warm, something like lying on a tropical beach...

PLEASURE FACTOR As above, it's a bit like taking a mini break on the beach but just for your face and without the evil UV rays. Overall it was just a lovely experience, everything felt clean, fresh, restful and professional.

OUR VERDICT I genuinely felt great and that I could see a change in my skin straight away - a bit of radiance and smoothness, but I was surprised to also feel more energetic and happy.

BOOK IT IN IF You're wanting an immediate pep up for your skin and your mood.

BUT KEEP IN MIND It's most effective with regular use - I felt like the effects from just one initial session probably only lasted about 24 hours, but skin therapist Ashleigh recommends going as often as possible as the benefits grow with each go.

EXPECT TO PAY $75 for a one-off session or $500 for ten sessions to be used within six months. You can also sign up for monthly memberships starting at $225. They're currently running an introductory offer for three sessions at $99, to be used in a two-week period.

YOU CAN VISIT The Facialist, located in Auckland's CityWorks Depot, or find out more online here.

As a study in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery notes, mitochondria in the skin cells can absorb these light particles. This can help the cells produce more adenosine triphosphate, which is the energy source for all cells.  

 If red light therapy can improve someone skin this much, by improving blood flow, would that better bloodflow then not also benefit the brain?

 If you be willing to plump up your skin cells, and it certainly appear to work, when early studies show you can improve bloodflow to brain cells, why not 'plump' up your brain cells as well, particularly if you know they are dying.

If red light therapy is safe for your face, for headaches and sinusitis, why is it so terrifyingly dangerous on your skull?

 Sure your going to get more refraction from bones and tissue in the skull, but some of it is getting through and its only done good things. If brain cells are dying because they don't have enough cellular energy, why not try something that gives those cells an energy boost.

 

Two companies using Near Infra Red light have shown improvements in all the areas listed below, and we happen to have some early evidence that it boosts bloodflow to the brain and reduces AD symptoms, with absolutely no side effects, why are nursing homes refusing to allow patients to try these personal wellness devices?

 

Conditions Treated

There is a long list of conditions that can benefit from MedX PBM Treatment. Research demonstrates that photobiomodulation can be used to effectively treat many conditions.
