Red Light Therapy? Does It Work?
If you’re not familiar with red light therapy and all of the great things it can do, researching the topic may be overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be, though! We will cover some basics about red light therapy in this post that will make the science and the process easier to understand. You don’t have to be an expert to know that this therapy has amazing benefits for people regardless of demographic. Here are the top things to know about red light therapy and how it works.
The Science Behind Red Light Therapy
Without boring you with all of the very technical details, red light therapy works because it uses a specific wavelength of light that penetrates the skin and targets the cells directly. When you have a red light therapy session, you’re looking for maximum safe exposure for your skin. At the right levels, your cell’s mitochondria are firmed up through a purging and healing process. This activity allows the cells to shed the things it doesn’t need. Like what you’ll find at Fit and Trim of Sarasota, professional red light therapy sessions emit a combination of light and heat therapy from light-emitting diodes (LED) that help start the cell healing process.
Not Just Fat Loss Results
Although you’ll see most people talk about the incredible fat loss and weight management results they see with regular red light therapy, there are actually many other benefits. Red light therapy, combined with a healthy lifestyle, provides both physical and mental health perks such as:
- Improved cognitive performance
- Noticeably increased energy
- Boosted sleep quality
- Decreased pain for chronic illnesses
- Lowered inflammation, especially for injuries and inflammatory-related diseases
- Skin tightening and reduced cellulite
And there are many other benefits outside of this list. The possibilities are endless for how your body will react to red light therapy, which is one of the best things about it.
Red Light Therapy Options
If you’re looking to red light therapy, there are a ton of options on the market, from at-home spot treatments to those in dermatologist offices, weight loss clinics, and spas. The issue with those, though, is that they don’t always have the best equipment. You need to have full-body exposure with the proper light emittance levels to see widespread success. Full-body red light therapy is the best way to activate your cell’s natural mitochondrial processes for purging what it doesn’t need to keep your body alive, like fat. Specifically, at Fit and Trim of Sarasota, we use a zero-gravity bed that offers full-body sessions proven to give the best results. Don’t waste time with spot treatments. Oftentimes, equipment such as that doesn’t even have the levels needed to penetrate the light into the cell correctly.
