How do Red Light Therapy Beds Work?

RLT beds are lined with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that produce specific wavelengths of visible and near-infrared light.

Research suggests that the light penetrates deeply into the body. ARRC LED targets 3 absorption points or chromophores. The primary target for RLT or photobiomodulation is the energy centers of the cell the mitochondria. Mitochondria produce ATP which the cells use to energize the tissues, organs and systems.

Mitochondria get damaged by free radicals. Light knocks the free radicals that block the ‘assembly line’ that produces ATP, restarting the energy process. That ATP energy accelerates the process of cell repair, resulting in skin that’s smoother, firmer, and less prone to acne, shingles, psoriasis, eczema and irregular pigmentation. It slows cell death, reduces inflammation, detoxifies waste and free radicals and improves circulation of blood, lymph and neurotransmitters.

What are the skin-related benefits of Red Light Therapy Beds?

A Red Light Therapy Bed can improve skin in several ways. And because they expose the entire body to low-level light, they’re especially beneficial for people whose skin concerns aren’t limited to the face. Research suggests that red light therapy can accelerate wound healing, alleviate muscle soreness and reverse hair loss. Skin issues are often a sign of deeper issues that surface onto the skin. By healing the entire system, everything gets better. We feel, think, look and perform better.

Skin-related benefits might include:

  • Fights signs of aging
  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Pigmentation
  • Graying, thinning hair
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Excema

How safe are Red Light Therapy beds?

These devices are considered safe and have virtually no side effects. It’s recommended to wear eye protection but even the eyes benefit from red light therapy.

Contraindications include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Epilepsy
  • Pacemaker
  • Low blood pressure (monitor sessions)
  • Photosensitive medications
  • Cancer (we predict this will change)

How often can you use Red Light Therapy beds?

There is no established time for undergoing the treatment. Undergoing sessions 10–15 minutes in length 2-3 times per week is generally recommended when you’re first starting. After several weeks, you can switch to weekly maintenance sessions.

Red Light Therapy beds on the market vary considerably in quality and cost.
