Red light therapy is a wellness treatment that uses low-wavelength infrared LED light. The goal of red light therapy is to stimulate healing in the body. This non-invasive procedure is painless.
Red light therapy works by affecting the mitochondria in your cells. Mitochondria are known as cell energy generators. Mitochondria are responsible for generating energy, which is stored as the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Over time, our mitochondria produce less ATP due to changes related to aging, illness, and lifestyle factors. Exposure to red light can also activate the cells to speed up the production of antioxidants. This results in lower levels of inflammation.
LED does not produce heat and doesn't cause topical burns to the skin.
While I always suggest caution, there is no evidence that the red light harms the eyes. With that being said the LED lights are very bright and googles MUST be worn to protect your eyes.
Always consult your doctor if you have eye concerns.
There are no UV rays in the Mito light devices. You get the benefits without the harmful rays!
Near Infrared Light Therapy is very safe. There are over 3,000 clinical studies that have found no known negative side effects. Overusing will not necessarily amplify your results.
