Red Light Therapy + Safe Tanning for Skin Rejuvenation.
Does the fear of wrinkles and premature aging of your skin
keep you away from indoor tanning?
Red Light Therapy tanning combines
safe, controlled UVB lamps and Red Light Therapy lamps
which gives you a soft, gentle tan as well as vitamin D,
while the red light rebuilds collagen and rejuvenates your skin.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Research has shown that certain skin cells when engaged by a process of applied red light waves at precisely 633 nanometers can be encouraged to produce enzymes, elastin and collagen that support the skin’s structure. Red light at 633nm is absorbed by the mitochondria of cells and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) for enhanced cell vitality and permeability, increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers, production of new collagen, and improved oxygenation.
Initial Results (First 4 weeks):
Initially, you will notice fine lines start to diminish. Your skin will have a much smoother feeling to it, pigmentation will start to even out, and any blemishes or acne will start diminishing.
Long Term Results (4-12 weeks):
Over time, improved oxygenation and detoxification of the skin is achieved as the vascular walls of the skin’s small blood vessels are strengthened, followed by improved natural repair and creation of healthy skin. This will help restore and firm up tired looking skin, decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks, diminish freckles, age spots, eliminate acne, even out pigmentation, minimize the size of facial pores, improve the appearance of sun weathered skin, and stimulate collagen synthesis. Overall, improving the skin’s underlying supportive structure and making you look and feel years younger.
Recommended Session Lengths:
Maximum time – 10 Minutes
Weeks 1-4: 10 minutes, 3-5 times a week
Weeks 5-12: 10 minutes, 2-3 times a week
Weeks 12+: 10 minutes, 1-2 times a week
Discontinuing the red light therapy typically results in the gradual loss of results over the course of time, as with normal skin aging.
The maximum time allowed is 10 minutes.
10 minutes offers a controlled, safer level of UVB for a soft, gentle tan while getting enough exposure for vitamin D and avoiding the risk of getting a burn.
What can I expect from Red Light Therapy tanning?
Tanning using red light will improve skin tone and texture, control pigmentation spots, help reduce pore size, encourage vibrant, healthier looking skin, and reduce fine lines. Anti-aging red light therapy stimulates circulation and repairs the elastin fibers within tissue to help keep skin firm. Over time improved oxygenation & detoxification is achieved as the vascular walls of the skins small blood cells are strengthened, followed by improved natural repair and creation of healthy skin. Skin cells grow by 150% to 200% when exposed to red light therapy. Skin texture and moisture level is also improved with this skin healing process. Overall you will look and feel younger.
When will I see results?
The anti-aging effect is dependent on the skin condition, age as well as number. Everyone reacts differently. Research has shown that many people report noticeable results, including clearer skin tone, reduction in pore size and the diminished appearance of age spots with the first 30-60 days of scheduled use. We strongly recommend 3 to 5 sessions per week for the first 4 weeks and 2 to 3 sessions for weeks 5-12.
After your first 12 weeks, we recommend 1-2 sessions per week thereafter.
Skin rejuvenation is a dynamic process. If treatments are discontinued, natural expression lines will gradually return over the course of time, at which point re-treatment can be put in place.
Can I use Red Light therapy the same day I tan?
Red light therapy tanning combines UVB tanning. The Red light penetrates deep into the skin and causes a heating effect. The increased blood circulation from the red light is beneficial for the skin, but even more so in combination with the UVB tanning. It brings more oxygen and antioxidants from the blood into the process of tanning and skin rejuvenation, which produces a better tan through increased oxidation of melanin.
ALWAYS protect your skin when exposed to the outside UVA/UVB rays by using use a broad spectrum sunscreen.
Are red lights safe?
According to the FDA, red light at 633nm has a “non-significant risk” status and is completely safe. Red light penetrates tissue to a depth of 8-10mm, delivering energy to stimulate a response from the body to heal itself.
How does Rejuvenessence “Collagen Plus” red lights work?
Red light at 633nm is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) production for enhanced cell vitality and permeability, increased production of new collagen, and increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150 – 200 percent faster when exposed to certain light wavelengths, and research has shown red light delivers powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue.
Does red light produce the same light as from the sun? Can it damage my skin?
Rejuvenessence “Collagen Plus” red light lamps utilize the visible spectra of light at 633nm (red), but contain no UVA or UVB rays.
How soon do results become noticeable?
There are few immediate changes to skin, as change occurs naturally over a period of weeks. Everyone reacts differently, depending on their age and the condition of their skin. In general, best results are achieved over a 4 to 12 week period.
Does Rejuvenessence “Collagen Plus” red lights treat acne, age spots, and sun damage?
Red light helps remove the bacteria that causes acne, and generates cellular activity that deals with age spots and sun damage. Anti-aging red light therapy brightens skin and reduces the formation of pigmentation marks.
Does red light treat cellulite?
