So if you’re looking for a safe, effective therapy for weight loss, body sculpting, inflammation, skin conditions, and much more, you’ve come to the right place. 

Red Light Therapy is Safe!

Red light therapy is widely considered to be:

  • Natural
  • Safe
  • Well-tolerated 
  • Painless 

The FDA has approved red light therapy for several conditions and is currently looking into more applications of the therapy. It has even been used by NASA. Check out this blog post for the history of red light therapy. 

Side Effects

Unlike salon tanning beds, red light therapy does not use harmful ultraviolet (UV) light that can damage the skin and cause cells to mutate. Because of this, there is typically no risk of side effects from undergoing RLT. However, a novice practitioner or someone who overuses the treatment may cause tissue and cell damage. That’s why Avanti Body offers free consultation to discuss individual needs and proper protocol. 

This 2014 study concluded that “the non-invasive nature and almost complete absence of side-effects encourages further testing in dermatology.” 


If you are taking medications please consult your doctor before adding red light to your health and wellness regimen.
