At Chiltonic, we specialize in helping our clients look and feel better. As a result, we have chosen a very effective red light delivery system - a full body red light therapy bed. The bed exposes the entire body to this therapy and is especially beneficial for people whose health concerns are not limited to the face.
Red light therapy is a type of treatment that uses low-level wavelengths of red or near-infrared light to improve the appearance of the skin and promote healing. It is also known as photobiomodulation or low-level light therapy.
Many of our treatments utilize temperature or compression to help you recover after intense physical activity. Whether you are aware of it or not, each time you stress your body with physical activity, your muscles develop micro tears that need repairing. This is the muscular growth process, and red light therapy is thought to accelerate and improve your body’s natural response to stressors.
How Does It Work?
The light is absorbed by the skin and can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and other molecules that are important for healthy skin. It can also help to reduce inflammation and promote blood flow, which can aid in the healing process.
Some people use red light therapy to reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and cellulite, as well as to improve hair growth.
Red Light therapy is usually administered in a series of sessions, with each session lasting anywhere from a few minutes to hours, depending on the specific treatment being used.
How Red Light Therapy Can Help You
While often used to inspire skin and wrinkle repair, red light therapy is also able to stimulate bone growth and recovery as well as soft tissue repair. If you are an athlete looking to strengthen your body or someone looking to improve physical performance overall, red light therapy in San Diego may be for you! It may also be a good choice for certain types of injuries to help trigger your body to heal. For more information, reach out to us today!
