Light therapy Science

How anti-aging red light therapy works

Niels Ryberg Finsen won a Nobel Prize in medicine for his studies around light therapy in 1903.  He discovered that light therapy could aid in treating tuberculosis lupus, which is skin lesions around the face and neck.

While Finsen's discovery was largely ignored at first due to the onset of antibiotics, it became an essential part of modern medicine and is still used in hospitals worldwide to help people with various ailments and conditions.

In the 1980s, NASA needed to find a light that didn't"t consume much energy or emit any heat yet still promoted healthy plant growth, and it worked.  NASA then started using light therapy to prevent muscle atrophy and wound healing in astronauts on long missions.  

After a few years, light therapy started to be used by hospitals around the world to treat a variety of skin conditions.  It is pretty amazing how light therapy products like our Kandyway Eternal Glow MD have on the human body in a natural and non-evasive way.

What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy or Photomodulation is a type of treatment that uses low-level wavelengths of non-invasive light to improve the appearance of the skin and promote healing. Devices that use red + near-infrared light can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, redness, and pigmentation. In addition, this combination will help improve the overall skin tone.

Red light therapy can be administered in clinics or with Kandway purchased a clinical grade device that can be used at home. Some people find that red light therapy can help to reduce inflammation and redness and may also help to improve circulation and boost the production of collagen.

Our skin breaks down as we age

As we get older, collagen elastin and hyaluronic acid break down, which causes our skin to wrinkle, thin out, and look like it has an uneven texture. In addition, pigmentation and age spots often occur due to too much exposure to UV rays from the sun. The results of these changes is a dull complexion with fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Red + Infrared is what defines clinical grade light therapy.

Red light 630nm: a visible light that reduces pigmentation, redness, and inflammation. This results in a more radiant complexion and even skin tone;

Near-infrared light 830nm: an invisible light that penetrates deeper into the tissues stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The result is firmer, more youthful skin with fewer wrinkles.
