Red Light Therapy is dose dependent. One can easily overdose as well as underdose. Doing so will not necessarily hurt the user as the slide effects are minimal, but overdosing can actually reduce the benefits of the system.
More in light therapy is not better. Right is right. We don’t take the entire bottle of aspirin – we take two.
ARRC LED suggests 2 sessions per week with sessions targeting pain relief to be approximately twice as long as sessions targeting performance.
The answer to how much Red Light Therapy sessions are needed to achieve the desired results is complex and different for every patient. In every wellness center, you would be in the hands of professionals who will make you a therapy plan tailored to the individuality of each patient.
ARRC LED sees photobiomodulation as a life enhancing wellness and performance modality. In testing we are seeing increases in phase angle for users which is a biomarker for longevity and fragility. If we can increase phase angle we live longer, with less fragility and less diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Look up Phase Angle in the NIH Pubmed website to learn more.
While many see PBMt as a treatment for an illness, we see PBMt as a pathway to a longer and better life. You feel better, think better, look better and perform better. That’s compelling.
How often should you do Red Light Therapy for skin care?
RLT is a new approach for people seeking non-thermal and pain-free skin care. Furthermore, researchers suggest that RLT increases microcirculation and vascular perfusion in the skin, alters platelet-derived growth factors, transforms growth factors, and inhibits apoptosis.
How often should you do Red Light Therapy for skin rejuvenation?
Recently, LED light sources for non-thermal light-only treatment for skin photorejuvenation have increased. In one multicenter clinical trial, 90 patients received 8 Red Light Therapy treatments over four weeks. The outcome of this study showed very favorable results, with over 90% of patients improving by at least one photoaging category and 65% of patients demonstrating global improvement in facial texture, fine lines, background erythema, and pigmentation. The results peaked at 4 to 6 months following completion of 8 treatments.
How often should you do Red Light Therapy to reduce wrinkles?
As a person’s skin ages, its cells divide more slowly, and the skin’s inner layer, called the dermis, begins to thin. That starts to undo the skin’s stretchiness and structure and loses its ability to hold on to moisture. It makes less oil and is slower to heal. That all contributes to the wrinkling process. Other things that cause wrinkles are:
- Skin type
- Sun exposure
- Repeated facial expressions
In a study about the possible positive effects of Red Light Therapy on wrinkles, each participant was assigned to one of four groups. Group 5 was mainly recruited without randomization and served as the control. Groups 1–4 were treated twice weekly, with 30 treatments starting in January. The data acquisition at baseline was completed after one month, and all volunteers finished treatment 30 in June.
Frequency of Red Light Therapy for Acne Treatment
Several studies suggested that Photobiomodulation in the red to the near-infrared spectral range and non-thermal power alone or in combination with other treatment modalities may be an effective treatment for acne vulgaris. One of these studies demonstrated a significant reduction in active acne lesions after 12 sessions twice weekly in conjunction with 2% topical clindamycin.
How Many Times a Week Should You Do Red Light Therapy for Weight Loss?
Red Light Therapy for weight loss is a new innovative technology that uses a special therapeutic light. According to research, this light can open up, penetrate fat cells, and liquefy the fat to make it easier to remove and burn as energy. The therapy takes approximately 20 minutes, and when it comes to the number of sessions you need, this will depend on several factors, such as:
- Eating habits
- Desired result
- Exercise habits
- Body fat percentage
- Area of concern
A standard RLT treatment course takes approximately 12 sessions over four to six weeks. After each session, you will probably have a fat loss of anywhere from half an inch to two and a half inches.
