The Answer to Healthy Hair & Skin? Whole-Body Red Light Therapy

To keep hair and skin healthy, start by incorporating the basics: drink enough water, sleep enough hours, and eat a healthy low-inflammatory diet. With today’s technology innovations, you can take it one step further by incorporating whole-body red light therapy into your weekly routine to reverse the effects of aging and rejuvenate the cells that keep skin, hair and your entire body healthy. 

A study published by the National Institute of Health observed the results of a control group that used red light therapy (RLT) for aesthetics i.e. wrinkles, dark spots, scarring, and more. This study concluded that red light therapy is a “large-area and full-body treatment modalities for skin rejuvenation and improvements in skin feeling and skin complexion…RLT can extend the spectrum of anti-aging treatment options available to patients looking for mild, non-invasive and using light-only skin rejuvenation.” There have also been a number of studies done which show the benefits of hair growth from red light application. Why invest in a red light cap or numerous targeted RLT devices when you can benefit head-to-toe with a Prism Light Pod?

HAIR

According to Practical Dermatology, red light therapy increases the number of hair follicles and hair strength by stimulating circulation, reducing inflammation and increasing cellular energy in the form of adenosine triphosphatase (ATP). 

This is especially beneficial for those who suffer from hair loss, hair thinning and pre-patterned baldness. Hair loss affects 50% of males and females with age, often correlated to genetic factors. 

Life Cycle of Hair

Each hair develops from a follicle — a narrow pocket in the skin — and goes through three phases throughout its lifecycle: 

  • Anagen (A), the active growth phase, lasts two to seven years
  • Catagen (B), the transition phase, lasts about two weeks
  • Telogen (C), the resting phase, lasts around three months and results in the shedding of hair

 

Red light therapy has demonstrated the ability to actually extend the anagen phase and prevent premature catagen. This has made it the most promising natural means to hair growth. With Medical Grade LEDS at an irradiance ranging from 630nm-660nm, men and women have shown dramatic improvements in hair regrowth when compared to placebo groups. 

SKIN

Healthy skin is one of the most highly sought after standards of beauty. With the ability to virtually reverse signs of aging and relieve skin conditions, red light therapy is one of the most versatile natural health solutions of our time.

Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern, especially in the summer months when we are tempted to be outside and expose ourselves to harmful UV rays. Hyperpigmentation appears as dark spots on the skin known as age spots or sun spots.

They arise from sun exposure and are found mostly on areas of the skin frequently exposed like the face, neck, hands and arms. Red light therapy increases collagen and promotes the regeneration of healthy cells for a clear and vibrant complexion, without the use of harmful UV rays. 

In case you have any upcoming aesthetic procedures to help enhance your beauty, be sure to incorporate red light therapy into your recovery regimen. It will significantly reduce redness, inflammation, pain and accelerate the healing process. Red light therapy promotes a renewed/supple look by increasing blood flow from capillaries, oxygen inflow then increases, causing skin to repair more quickly.
