What is Red Light Therapy (RLT)?
Red Light Therapy (RLT), also referred to as low-level light therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive regenerative treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light energy to the layers of the skin tissue and body’s cell. Depending on the wavelength, the energy from the light is absorbed into the tissues and cells of the skin and body to stimulate collagen production, cell regeneration for faster healing, and reduce inflammation in the body.
The wavelengths found in Red Light Therapy activates the cells in the body to produce a biochemical effect that strengthens the mitochondria (where the cell’s energy is created). By increasing the strength of the mitochondria using RLT, a cell can make more ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate, an energy-carrying molecule found in cells). With more energy, cells can work more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage within the body’s muscles and tissue.
What Does Red Light Therapy Help With?
Here are some of the symptoms RLT can help with.
Promotes healthy weight loss
Lowers inflammation in the body
Reduces joint pain
Reduces damaging effects of oxidative stress
Improves blood flow
Improves mood and sleep
What is TheraLight 360 (RLT) Bed?
The Theralight 360 bed delivers a full-body photobiomodulation treatment with red and near-infrared light. This highly advanced and innovative device is programmed with carefully calibrated infrared light waves to “bathe” the body with therapeutic light, stimulating cell regeneration and enhancing tissue repair.
Fully customizable to clients needs to address a specific outcome or desire.
How Many RLT Sessions are Recommended?
It is recommended to have 2-3 sessions per week at the same Hz settings for the following 2-3 weeks. Each session could range from 10 to 15 minutes.
What can I expect with a Red Light Therapy Session?
A session with a full-body RLT treatment with the TheraLight 360 device, will start with the trained technician selecting the correct Hz setting, based on the client’s treatment objectives. Clients are advised to wear minimal clothing (swimwear attire) for optimal therapy treatment and results.
The Theralight 360 bed is designed with specialized LED lights that do not heat, allowing the 10-15 minute session to be comfortable and relaxing.
CAN RED LIGHT THERAPY HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
Red light therapy has shown clinical benefit with weight loss in multiple small controlled studies, however larger studies are needed. RLT has shown most beneficial at improving body contour and burning difficult to lose fat. At WRK Fitness Studio we use RLT as an adjunct treatment along with regular exercise, healthy diet/nutrition counseling, and proper supplementation.
Our comprehensive weight loss package includes personal training, vitamin injections, LED therapy, meal plans and customized supplementation packages. Medical supervision along with lab work is available. We are ready to make the commitment with you to guarantee your success.
How Can Red Light Therapy Help With Your Skin?
Red Light Therapy (RLT) has wavelengths that penetrate the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and into the middle layer (dermis). The energy from the light stimulates fibroblast cell production- a vital cell that creates collagen in the skin and helps with the natural healing process. The energy to the cells increases the oxygen flow for better blood circulation that promotes self-healing and cell regeneration.
Red Light Therapy doesn’t use ultraviolet light (invisible wavelengths linked to pre-mature aging and sun damage). Instead, the low-level light energy is a heat-free and pain-free treatment that’s safe to use on the skin and body.
And in an article by the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology cited research that found improvements in skin texture from increased collagen production and oxygenation from low-level red light therapy.
Skin Issues Red Light Therapy Can Help
Anti-aging; wrinkles, lines, aging spots, skin laxity
Repairs injuries, wounds, or sun damage
Recurring cold sores or herpes
Reduces inflammation in the skin
