Red Light Therapy

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

How does LED Therapy Work? Numerous studies have concluded the following effects of LED Therapy.

  • LED’s at specific wavelengths are reported to increase circulation by increasing the formation of new capillaries. This allows more blood supply - hence more oxygen and vital nutrients to reach tissues. This increased circulation also allows for the faster removal of metabolic wastes.

  • Studies site that LED Therapy stimulates the production of collagen.Collagen is an essential protein for repair to damaged tissue, including ageing skin and scars.

  • LED Therapy reportedly stimulates the release of ATP – Adenosine triphosphate. ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Increases in cellular ATP levels allow the cells to function more effectively and get rid of wastes faster.

  • LED Therapy increases the activity of the lymphatic system thus promoting a faster elimination of swelling – oedema in tissues.

  • LED Therapy reduces the excitability of nervous tissue by stimulating the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain fighting chemicals.

  • LED Therapy increases the synthesis of RNA and DNA. This helps damaged cells to be replaced more quickly.

  • LED Therapy increases phagocytic activity hence helps fight infections. Phagocytes help to destroy and mop up dead or degenerated cells.

  • LED Therapy stimulates tissue granulation which is an important part of tissue repair.

  • LED Therapy stimulates trigger points and acupuncture points.

  • LED Therapy helps to relax muscles.
