For example, when light therapy is used to promote muscle recovery, infrared is a more appropriate environment because it penetrates deep into the muscle however using red light is still beneficial as it is absorbed by more superficial skin cells that stimulate collagen production.

How to maximize results from at home red light therapy?

Consistency is key. We suggest doing red light therapy everyday or every other day. If you have a niggling or painful issue, every day is best. We find incorporating red light into a routine is very important when forming a habit.

What is the difference between red light and laser therapy?

Both laser and LED therapies deliver an adequate amount of energy to the target tissue however they do have their differences. Red light therapy is different from laser or IPL because it doesn’t cause damage to the skin surface. Laser and pulsed light therapies are designed to cause mior controlled damage to the skin, which then induces tissue repair. Red light bypasses this harsh step by directly stimulating regeneration of the skin. Red Light also is dispersed more vastly across the skin, whereas lasers are much more targeted.
