Now that the weather is warm, spending time outdoors is a given for most people. Other than applying an effective sunscreen, there are other preventative measures you can take to protect yourself from the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays. If your skin suffers from sun damage such as spots, sunburns or wrinkles, there is help in the form of red light therapy. Here are a few ways in which red light therapy can help heal your skin from sun damage.
It not only helps address wrinkles associated with sun damage – The powerful wavelengths of red and infrared LED lights (which – BTW are not UVA or UVB rays) offer a safe and powerful two-in-one treatment to help fade sun and aging spots and repair and prevent wrinkles. These scientifically proven wavelengths of light can also address other aging areas of the body, such as repairing the damaged collagen associated with cellulite on the arms and legs and stretch marks on the tummy. It also helps to quickly heal wounds and inflammation associated with burns (such as sunburns) or pain such as lower back pain or arthritis.
It does not use harsh chemicals – While there are chemical options to fade spots, Retin A, for example, costs about $175 a tube. It also entails medical lasers which require downtime and cost thousands of dollars. Why not invest in an FDA-approved Red Light Therapy medical device for home or office use? It’s safe, has no side effects and is far more cost-effective than lasers and retinoids.
