Frequently Asked Questions - Science

What is Targeted Light Therapy?

Targeted Light Therapy (TLT) is a therapeutic technique that uses specific wavelengths of light to treat various skin issues, promote wound healing, reduce inflammation, and offer pain relief. The area of treatment is concentrated to make it more convenient to integrate into personal wellness routines without wasted time or energy. It is a non-invasive treatment, which means no chemicals, drugs, or incisions are involved.

How does Red Light Therapy differ from Blue and NIR light therapy?
  • Red Light Therapy (RLT): Primarily used for skin health, inflammation reduction, and collagen production. Penetrates superficial layers of the skin.
  • Blue Light Therapy : Used to treat acne, by targeting the bacteria that cause acne outbreaks. It is effective on the skin's surface.
  • Near-Infrared (NIR) Light Therapy: Penetrates deeper than both red and blue light, reaching muscles, joints, and even bones. It's mainly used for pain relief, muscle healing, and reducing inflammation in deeper tissues.
What makes Red, Blue, and NIR light therapy effective?
  • Red Light: Red light stimulates cellular mitochondria, enhancing the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) – the energy currency of cells. This results in increased cellular function and health, promoting faster healing, and producing collagen.
  • Blue Light: Blue light's primary function is its antibacterial properties. It's effective against the specific strains of bacteria that cause acne.
  • NIR Light: Near-Infrared penetrates deeper into tissues, reaching muscles and bones. It can enhance circulation, promote healing, and offer pain relief.
Are there any side effects of using Targeted (Red & NIR) Light Therapy devices?

T(R)LT is generally considered safe with minimal side effects. However, long term direct exposure to the eye can be harmful, especially with Blue Light. Always follow the device's instructions. If any skin irritation or unexpected symptoms occur, discontinue use and consult a medical professional.

When can I expect to see results?

Consistency is key; regular sessions will yield better results. Many users report feeling better immediately after a session, but visible results like improved skin quality might take a few weeks.

Is light therapy suitable for everyone?

While light therapy is safe for most people, those with specific photosensitivity disorders or on medications that increase light sensitivity should consult with a healthcare provider before use. Also those who are pregnant or have cancerous regions should consult a medical provider before using.

Is light therapy safe for all skin types?

Yes, light therapy is generally safe for all skin types. However, individual reactions can vary, so it's essential to start with shorter sessions and monitor any skin reactions.

Can I use light therapy in conjunction with other treatments?

Generally, yes. Light therapy can be used alongside most treatments, from skincare regimens to physical therapies. However, always consult with a healthcare provider when combining treatments.

Are there any age restrictions for using light therapy devices?

Light therapy is safe for all age groups. However, for minors, it's recommended to have responsible adult supervision during sessions.
