Cutting to the Chase: Does this Therapy Work? This, of course, is the first question people ask when hearing about red light therapy. There are innumerable personal anecdotes saying that it absolutely does work—but even more powerful is an incredible body of research. When a therapy is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed studies and clinical trials, and when these studies show that red light therapy is a safe and effective therapy, the choice to use it becomes clearer. Here is a sampling of studies on the efficacy of red light therapy for a variety of conditions: Younger looking skin: LLLT helps reverse signs of aging by increasing collagen and elastin production. It also stimulates the growth of capillaries under the skin, which will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore youthful skin thickness, firmness, and elasticity. Brain health: Red light is a neuroprotector, meaning it protects neurons (brain cells) from neurodegenerative disorders, and also accelerates healing from traumatic brain injury. It works partly by reducing oxidative stress, which is linked to Alzheimer’s disease and non-seasonal depressive disorders, and partly by stimulating normal healthy growth of neurons. Eye health: Red light can protect vision and treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and eye injuries. Hair regrowth: LLLT increases blood flow to the scalp, boosts collagen production, and stimulates activity in dormant hair follicles. Restoring healthy thyroid function: This relieves symptoms of underactive thyroid, such weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, and muscle weakness. Better sleep: Red light stimulates melatonin production and helps regulate the circadian rhythm (natural sleep/wake cycles). Male sexual and reproductive health: LLLT stimulates energy production in testosterone-producing Leydig cells; and improves sperm motility, which can improve chances of conception. Chronic skin disorders: Red light therapy minimizes symptoms and treats inflammation that contributes to (and aggravates) acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. Physical performance: Red light has been shown to decrease muscle fatigue, increase muscle mass, and minimize delayed onset muscle soreness. Immunity: Red light boosts production of stem cells. These key elements of the immune system are unspecialized cells that transform into specialized cells as needed, at the site of wounds or disease.
