LED red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses natural red light wavelengths to help weight loss, reduce inflammation, promote healing, and improve skin conditions. It is a popular treatment option in the world of beauty and wellness and for good reason! In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of LED red light therapy and how it can improve your overall well-being.

How does LED red light therapy work?

LED red light therapy works by delivering specific wavelengths of red light to the skin. These wavelengths penetrate the skin past the subcutaneous layer of fat to the muscle tissue and stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy source for cells. This increase in ATP production helps to stimulate the fat-burning hormones called lipolysis and promote healing and reduce inflammation, which can lead to a variety of benefits. So what is the science behind the benefits? Let's discuss....

What are the benefits of LED red light therapy?

1. Reduces inflammation: In peer-reviewed research, LED red light therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, making it a popular treatment for conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, and muscle soreness. In newer studies for fat loss, we are learning inflammation blocks fat-burning hormone receptors making weight loss nearly impossible for some people.

2. Promotes healing: The increased ATP is in every cell of our body. ATP production stimulated by LED red light therapy helps to promote 70% faster healing in the body. This can be especially beneficial for those recovering from injuries or surgery.

3. Improves skin conditions: LED red light therapy has been shown to improve a variety of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and psoriasis. It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles because it stimulates collagen and elastin production.

4. Boosts mood: LED red light therapy has been shown to boost mood and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. This may be due to its ability to stimulate the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is responsible for regulating mood.

5. Improves sleep: LED red light therapy has been shown to improve sleep quality and duration. This may be due to its ability to regulate the body's circadian rhythm, which is responsible for regulating sleep-wake cycles.

How can you incorporate LED red light therapy into your routine?

LED red light therapy can be incorporated into your routine in a variety of ways. Many wellness centers like ours offer LED red light therapy treatments, which typically last between 15-30 minutes. You can also purchase our at-home LED red light therapy devices, which can be used on the face or body.

We recommended adding it to your weight loss routine for burning an additional 400-600 calories per 30-minute treatment. We place our weight loss clients on LED red light therapy 2 -3 times per week to help them lose weight faster and healthier.

In conclusion, LED red light therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions. Whether you are looking to lose weight, reduce inflammation, promote healing, improve your skin, boost your mood, or improve your sleep, LED red light therapy may be worth exploring.
