How it helps improve your skin health:
In 2014, there was a controlled trial to determine the efficacy of red and near-infrared light treatment in patient satisfaction, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, skin roughness, and intradermal collagen density increase.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of two novel light sources for large area and full body application, providing polychromatic, non-thermal photobiomodulation (PBM) for improving skin feeling and appearance.
TThe patients treated with red light experienced significantly improved skin complexion and skin feeling and ultrasonographically measured collagen density. The clinical evaluation of photographs confirmed significant improvement in the intervention groups compared with the control.

In 2004, a study was conducted to see how effective red light therapy was with reducing scars. During the study, it was discovered that 17 out of the 19 patients who had been under red light therapy had less visible scars than those who weren’t. There were no side effects following treatment

In 2016, studies conducted showed that red light quickened the healing process of burns by decreasing inflammation levels and increasing the forming of new tissues. The results suggest that 660 nm and LED 850 nm appear reduced in the inflammatory response and oxidative stress parameters, thus decreasing dermal necrosis and increasing granulation tissue formation, in fact accelerating the repair of burn wounds.
