Red Light Therapy
What is Red light therapy?
Red light therapy is an artificial light, which is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation. Red light therapy uses low light wavelengths of red and near-infrared light that penetrates through our skin to heal our body. This therapy works on a cellular level, stimulating mitochondria – (our body’s own powerhouse responsible for making ATP Adenosine Triphosphate) As mitochondria soaks up the light, it increases production of ATP, making the cells better function, repair and regenerate. Wavelengths are measured in nanometers.
Is Red light therapy safe?
Thousands of peer-reviewed studies have been conducted on Red light therapy, and none have found any safety issues with short-term or long-term Red light therapy use. For more information please visit https://platinumtherapylights.com/blogs/news

There are no evidence showing any harmful effects from Red light therapy. Red light therapy should not be confused with UVA or UVB therapy because, they do carry risks.
