Light therapy harnesses the healing power of natural light and works at the cellular level. Through a scientific process of photobiomodulation, photons of red and near infrared light are absorbed at the mitochondrial level to produce more ATP energy and enhance cell signaling. Routine exposure to specific therapeutic wavelengths increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy produced during cellular respiration to power your cells, resulting in more energy and healthier function. When the light energy is absorbed by photoreceptors, targeted energy is delivered at a higher rate than the sun without harmful UV rays or side effects. Blood flow, oxygen and nutrients increase thereby activating intracellular signaling pathways, increasing protein synthesis, and enhancing cell cycle progression.
A wide range of clinically-documented health benefits have been published on Red Light Therapy. For inflammatory pain, red light stops cytokine production which causes inflammation. Routine exposure is reported to eliminate inflammatory pain associated with joint pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia. Studies also show red light can reduce the lethargy and weakness associated with Hypothyroidism and even reverse the effects of the illness. Red light also aids in wound control by increasing circulation and forming new capillaries to initiate and maintain the healing process. By providing energy to the damaged and surrounding cells, the underlying tissue is healed which expedites wound and infection recovery.
For the skin, studies show the low levels of red light will improve skin tone and even reverse skin damage. Red light stimulates the production of fibroblasts to synthesize collagen and elastin and stimulate the production of collagen. When the skin absorbs the red light, new cells are stimulated and grow, which repair existing damage and increase the skin’s ability to protect against new damage. This has helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Analysis also show improvement in skin conditions such Psoriasis, Rosacea, age spots and discolored pigmentation caused by Vitiligo Disorder where traditional treatments have failed. For the treatment of acne, red light therapy reduces the production of sebum, an enzyme contributing to acne outbreaks.
The FDA approved Joovv® Whole Body Red Light uses a scientifically proven combination of red and near infrared wavelengths in the natural light spectrum (660nm to 850nm), the range shown to be highly beneficial at the cellular level by a wealth of clinical research.
