Red Light Help Wrinkle Reduction

WOW. When I got Red Light therapy for the office, I was blown away by all of the amazing benefits that all come from this easy, affordable, and proven-to-work therapy. It can help you lose fat, reduce acne, help your thyroid, treat diabetes, help with depression/anxiety, and improve sleep. With so many applications, you may be wondering can Red Light help wrinkle reduction? And the answer is YES! Numerous studies have shown that Red Light can help reduce wrinkles and improve skin health.

Why does it work?

There are several things that make red and near infrared (NIR) light special. The first is that red and NIR light stimulates the mitochondria in your cells, an essential part of producing energy and maintaining cell health. This helps reduce cell death. It also boosts collagen, elasticity, and reduces inflammation and hyperpigmentation (like age spots)

Red and NIR light penetrates more deeply than shorter light wavelengths of light like blue and green light. As you can see in the graphic below different wavelengths of light penetrate the body at different levels. Even different colors of red light penetrate at different levels. The Mito Red light panels we use and recommend have Red and Near Infrared (NIR) lights with wavelengths of 630, 660, 810 and 850 nm wavelengths. This simply means that the panels we have in-office and available for purchase are the real deal!

The Studies Show…

The proof is there! There are many studies on Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), aka Red Light therapy, that show physical changes as well as internal changes in the body.

One study treated just half of a subject’s face with red light, the skin appeared younger-looking on the PBMT treated side compared with the untreated side. This study went on to find: the skin elasticity increased by 56% on the side treated with PBMT and 17% on the side not directly treated with PBMT. This is important! It shows that even if a body part is not immediately being exposed to the light, it still can improve to some degree. The power of these lights is real! And after the study, the subjects’ self-improvement scores were good/excellent in 83% of intervention sides and 26% of control sides.

For dermatology, another study stated: PBMT has beneficial effects on wrinkles, acne scars, hypertrophic scars, and healing of burns. It can also reduce UV damage both as a treatment and as a preventative measure. In pigmentary disorders such as vitiligo, PBMT can increase pigmentation by stimulating melanocyte proliferation and reduce depigmentation by inhibiting autoimmunity. Inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and acne can also be managed. The noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects encourage further testing in dermatology.

A study on At-Home PBMT devices shows: “…a clinical study assessed the safety and efficacy of a daily treatment with the home-use device for 28 days. A significant increases in skin density and radiance while reducing the wrinkles was obtained with no side effects.”

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
