We’ve talked a lot about the anti-aging benefits that red light therapy can provide for your skin— but the truth is it can heal a whole host of other skin issues as well. Your skin is vitally important. It’s the largest organ of the body, it’s your first line of defense against harmful bacteria and viruses, and it protects you against the sun’s harmful rays. But on top of all that, it also plays a huge role in your self-esteem and confidence. Anyone who’s had skin issues knows this all too well. At Avanti Body in Vacaville, CA, we care about the health of your skin. If you’re looking for an effective treatment for skin issues, we can help!
Studies have shown red and near-infrared light to be effective for treating acne. Red light therapy works below the surface of your skin on a cellular level, repairing tissue—unlike creams and face washes. Red light affects the production of a substance called sebum, which contributes to the production of acne. It also controls cytokines, which are proteins produced by the cells that are responsible for the skin inflammation and redness associated with bad acne. Red light therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing scarring associated with acne, as well. If your acne is caused by a chronic skin condition, red light therapy might be the right treatment option for you.
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated skin disorder that is characterized by bumpy, red patches covered with white scales. These patches can grow anywhere on the body, but are most common on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. While there isn’t a cure for psoriasis yet, you can find some relief with the right combination of treatments. Red light therapy is one tool you can use for finding psoriasis relief. Of course, before trying any new treatments, it’s best to consult with your physician first.
