HOW IT WORKS
Collagen Red Light Anti-Aging Phototherapy works by penetrating a calming and relaxing red light at 633 nanometers on the skin to a depth of 8-10mm. The light rays stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, proteins with a high elasticity level that is used to repair damaged tissue, diminish lines, creases, furrows and crow’s feet. Red light therapy also increases circulation by relaxing the blood vessels in the treated areas allowing the blood to flow more easily. This further helps to prevent and treat wrinkles as increased circulation encourages the production of new skin cells. The light also refines pore size and skin texture without painful peels, surgery or injections and has been proven to fade age spots, scars, and control melasma and hyper pigmentation. Sapphire Tans’ RED LIGHT THERAPY SKIN REJUVENATION BOOTHS are set up entirely with red light collagen lamps specifically designed for full body red light therapy. They are at the salon now so come on in and try a session soon!
RECOMMENDED TREATMENT PLAN
Four (4) 15 minute sessions per week for 4 weeks, then 2-3 sessions per week until desired results are achieved. Thereafter, maintain with 1-2 sessions each week. You will see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial blemishes and crow’s feet. Because the success of red light therapy depends on the frequency that it is used it is important to maintain a consistent treatment schedule in order to continue seeing results.
Treatments using red light will improve skin tone and texture, control pigmentation spots, help reduce pore size, encourage vibrant, healthier-looking skin, and reduce wrinkles. Anti-aging red light therapy stimulates circulation and repairs the elastin fibers within tissue to help keep skin firm.
According to the FDA, red light at 633nm has a “non-significant risk” status and is completely safe. Red light penetrates tissue to a depth of 8 – 10 mm, delivering energy to stimulate a response from the body to heal itself. Use of eye protection wear is recommended.
Red light at 633nm is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) production for enhanced cell vitality and permeability, increased production of new collagen, and increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150 – 200 percent faster when exposed to certain light wavelengths, and research has shown red light delivers powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue.
Too much sunlight can affect the skin due to the emission of broad spectrum ultraviolet energy through the atmosphere. Red Light treatment bed lamps utilize the visible spectra of light at 633nm (red), but contain no UVA or UVB rays.
Red Light Therapy does not cut, burn, or break the skin as with laser treatments. Lasers use heat and concentrated light to vaporize or remove tissue. Red Light Therapy bed lamps produce no vaporization or burning of tissue, and therefore no inflammation or erythema. Red Light Therapy is one of the few non-invasive tools available that can reverse the appearance of aging skin, such as wrinkles and mottled skin tone.
There are few immediate changes to skin, as change occurs naturally over a period of weeks. Everyone reacts differently, depending on their age and the condition of their skin. In general, best results are achieved over an 8 – 12 week period.
Red Light helps remove the bacteria that causes acne, and generates cellular activity that deals with age spots and sun damage. Anti-aging Red Light Therapy brightens skin and reduces the formation of pigmentation marks.
Yes, studies show that the appearance of cellulite is reduced with red light therapy.
To ensure the best possible results of the red light treatment, it’s beneficial to cleanse the skin thoroughly beforehand. No other preparation is necessary. The use of special skin care products designed specifically for red light therapy, may dramatically improve the results experienced.
Please be aware that makeup may reduce or block the effectiveness of the light. The skin’s permeability increases during the session, which improves the effectiveness of red light skin care products and allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper. For best results we recommend removing all makeup prior to use.
The Collagen Red Light Therapy is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. The main prerequisite is that skin be clean for effective light transmission.
Results depend on the length of treatment and the original conditions being treated. Skin rejuvenation is a dynamic process. If maintenance treatments are discontinued, natural expression lines will gradually return over the course of time, at which point re-treatment can be put in place.
