Will red light therapy help with muscle recovery?
Light therapy increases the cell's energy production, each cell within the treated area begins producing new cells to replace the cells of the injured tissue. When ATP production increases, so does a cell's production of fibroblasts. These cells provide the building blocks of the body's connective tissue, which in turn repair damaged tissue.
What is the difference between red and near infrared light?
Red light is visible and is most effective for use on the surface of the skin. Red light occupies the “long end” of the visible spectrum with wavelengths of 630nm-700nm.
Infrared light is invisible and is effective for use on the surface of the skin as well as deeper penetration into the body. Infrared sits right next to red light on the electromagnetic spectrum at 700nm to 1 millimeter and is effective for muscle and joint pain.
Why do some of my lights look like they're not working?
Our devices use a 1:1 ratio of red and near infrared LED's, when you power on your device the light you're able to see is the red 660 wavelengths while the near infrared 850 wavelengths are not visible.
Should I wear eye protection while using red light therapy?
