Red Light Therapy
Although NASA is typically charged with missions exploring space on behalf of the United States, many of their discoveries – like Red Light Therapy – benefit thousands of people right here on Earth.
How does Red Light Therapy work?
Red Light Therapy penetrates deeper into skin to improve skin’s appearance and structure.
What can Red Light Therapy do for me?
Red Light Therapy can address a host of concerns, including:
- Healing sun-damaged skin
- Condition and appearance of skin impacted by eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis
- Fading of scars, surgical wounds, and stretch marks
- Facial pore size
- Wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots
- Facial skin tone, acne blemishes, and facial texture
Is this treatment safe for my skin?
Absolutely! Red Light Therapy uses light that is near the infrared band of the spectrum. This is on the OPPOSITE side of the visible light spectrum from damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. However, to determine the proper amount of exposure during Red Light Therapy and how many visits are appropriate, it’s best to have a medspa medical professional oversee and deliver your course of Red Light Therapy. Scottsdale is outstandingly represented in this area by The Skin Clinic!
