How does red light therapy work?
Concentrated wavelengths of red light are distributed onto your skin which then penetrates deep into your tissue and is absorbed by your cells. This encourages the production of elastin, fibroblasts, and collagen which will reduce the thinning of your skin and prevent wrinkles. It also boosts circulation which brings more nutrients to your cells and tissues. This causes many regenerative effects on the cells of your body and helps to promote healing of the tissue.
