How to Use Red Light Therapy at Home


Red light therapy is becoming the first choice for people seeking relief from chronic skin conditions, muscle and joint pain, and those who want to reduce the visible signs of aging. If you’re wondering how often you should use red light therapy, we’re here to provide some structure for implementing it into your wellness routine. This guide should be read carefully before starting your RLT journey.

How does red light therapy work

Light therapy devices are an easy way to get a healthy dose of natural light every day. Just use the SGROW red light therapy device for 10 minutes a day to get the dose of light your body needs. The SGROW Red Light device uses red and near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths of light to treat your body, delivered directly to your skin and body. This is like the light wavelengths of natural sunlight your body needs, but without the heat or UV rays that cause sun damage. When your cells begin to absorb natural light, the way you look and feel begins to change. The SGROW Red Light device uses red and near-infrared light to provide a dual therapeutic experience. You may be wondering; what is the difference between red light and near-infrared light? We will discuss this issue next.


What is the difference between red light and near-infrared light

Red light is visible light (630-700nm), and near-infrared light is invisible light (700-1200nm). Because near-infrared light emits a longer wavelength, this allows infrared light to penetrate deeper into the body than red light. Those are really the only two differences. It should be noted that since the two light therapies have different wavelengths, this will affect their therapeutic effects.

The difference between the two is that red light is clearly visible to the naked eye, while 660nm red light is absorbed from the outside by skin tissue, thereby increasing collagen production and speeding up skin healing. Near-infrared light is 850nm and is invisible to the human eye. It penetrates deeper into tissue to promote muscle recovery, joint pain reduction and energy production. In short:

660nm red light: Best for targeting the skin directly. Works to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, balance skin tone, and enhance collagen production. 660nm light penetrates the skin at meaningful levels to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin tone.

850nm near-infrared light: can penetrate deeper tissues, muscles, organs, brain, and even bones. Near-infrared light acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, enhances muscle recovery, improves blood flow and circulation, and stimulates energy production at the cellular level.

Key tips for using red light therapy

When it comes to red light therapy, consistency is key. Incorporating red light into existing health habits such as yoga, meditation, morning coffee, reading, stretching, or exercise can lead to success.

Eyes: Goggles should be used when near-infrared mode is enabled. Please take normal precautions when using any light therapy product. You should never shine a red light device directly into your eyes, just like you should never look directly into the sun. We recommend initially using this product in a well-lit room to allow your eyes to adjust to the light.

Check any medications carefully: Red light does not include ultraviolet light, but to be safe, you should ask your doctor if you are taking any medications that may make your skin sensitive to light before starting treatment.

Continue with your usual beauty routine: Even when using red light therapy, it’s important to cleanse and moisturize. Make sure the products you use won’t clog your pores (especially if you’re treating spots or acne). Red light won’t replace your skin care regimen, but it can certainly enhance it!

Clothing: In order to use Vital Red Light effectively, the area of the body you are treating needs to be directly exposed to the light. Clothing can prevent red and near-infrared light from reaching your cells, so be sure to remove all clothing from the area of your body being treated.


Results and expectations of using red light therapy

The time it takes to pursue benefits and improvements depends on the individual. The cellular health benefits of red light therapy have been proven thousands of times in clinical studies, so trust that your body will benefit from every treatment. There are many factors that affect how quickly you experience improvements. For some people, results are immediate, while for others it takes 8 to 12 weeks of continued use. By using your device every day, you can maximize the speed of your body’s recovery.


Are there any side effects

Everyone is different, and although the red side effects of near-infrared light therapy are not numerous, there is always the chance that one person may experience problems that others do not. Therefore, when starting any type of light therapy, you should start slowly and always perform an initial patch test to confirm that no negative reactions are occurring. Some people are sensitive to bright light, and some people don’t know this until they try a bright light therapy device. This is very rare, but possible. Those taking any medications that may expose them to light should avoid any type of light therapy. People who have migraines caused by exposure to bright light should also avoid any type of light therapy, as should anyone whose seizures are triggered by light.
