Frequently Asked Questions
Infrared and red light is an innovative therapy that has been trialed clinically for the management of patients with acute or chronic pain and many other conditions. Essentially the therapy uses two particular wavelengths of light that are delivered to sites of the body that require healing. Infrared and red light therapy provides power to your cells by creating ATP. A light therapy device like an Infraredi device delivers red & near infrared wavelengths directly to your body with LEDs. These wavelengths of light are “bioactive” in humans. Which means these types of light have a positive affect on the function of our mitochondria. Essentially providing a boost of energy production and regeneration.
Red Light therapy works by enhancing ATP energy production which increases collagen, reduces oxidative stress, increases muscle recovery, speeds up healing and reduces inflammation. Please check out our blog posts to see how it can help you!
The difference between the two is that red light is clearly visible to the eye and at 660nm is absorbed externally by skin tissue, leading to increased collagen production and faster skin healing. Near infrared light is 850nm and is invisible to the human eye. It penetrates deeper into tissue, leading to increased muscle recovery, reduced joint pain and energy production.
Yes and no. Red Light therapy does not penetrate through clothing or bandages as it visible to the eye. However near infrared light, which is invisible to the eye, will penetrate through clothes and many bandages and dressings.
This depends on the condition you are treating and whether you are using infrared or red light therapy. For most conditions, daily use for at least four weeks is recommended. Please head to our blog for a more in depth answer.
Eye protection is not necessary, goggles just make the sessions comfortable for you. Red light has never been shown to be harmful to eyes.
No, there is no UV in red or near infrared light therapy. Infact, red light therapy is quite beneficial in healing a sunburn.
