Frequently Asked Questions

Why 660nm red & 850nm infrared light?

Highly energy efficient and tuned to the best red & near-infrared light therapy wavelength, this product’s light output coincides exactly with our cellular absorption in those ranges, ensuring maximum effects in the shortest time possible.

Red for inflammation reduction

How red-light works?

Red and Near Infrared Light Therapy

Numerous studies have proven that light therapy – otherwise known as photobiomodulation – provides great benefits when a device combines the right wavelength of light with the right amount of power. Some of those benefits include:

  • Improved skin tone and complexion [1]
  • Enhanced muscle recover [2]
  • Reduce acne, rosacea, and eczema [1]
  • Improved appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and stretch marks [1]
  • Quicker healing of wounds and injuries [3]
  • Reduced pain and inflammation [4]

Anti-ageing Benefits

  • Increased circulation, via the formation of new capillaries, is responsible for some benefits. Or, in other words, more blood and oxygen helps deliver proper nutrients to damaged areas in the body [3]
  • Enhanced activity within your lymph system leads to a reduction in swelling and inflammation [5]
  • Increased collagen production, which directly relates to the elasticity, firmness, and fullness of your skin [5]

Most of this activity occurs within the mitrochondria, the “powerhouse” of the cell. For the sake of this article, we’ll focus on the last step, oxidative phosphorylation. That’s where light therapy is believed to help the most.

This fourth step of cellular respiration involves an election transport chain. As electrons move down this chain, energy is released and used to pump protons out of a matrix, forming a gradient. Protons flow back into the matrix through an enzyme called ATP synthase, which creates ATP. [6,7]

So where does ATP synthase come from? Well, a certain enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase (CCO) helps oxygen bind with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H) – NADH – to form the necessary hydrogen ions that produce ATP synthase.[8]

If you remember anything, make sure it’s this fact: oxygen plus NADH is a good thing when it comes to healthy cellular function.

Whew! That’s some pretty meaty information. Before we go on, make sure you understand how a healthy cell is supposed to function. Take another look at the paragraphs above if you have to. And remember, oxygen plus NADH is good!

Why Cells aren't healthy?

When we get sick, injured, stressed, etc, mitochondria in our cells can produce excess nitric oxide (NO). To understand the ramification of this, let’s go back to that little enzyme, cythochrome c oxidase.

During the creation of ATP synthase, nitric oxide competes with oxygen and binds to CCO. This, in turn, stops the eventual production of ATP and thereby increases oxidative stress, which can lead to cellular death.[9]

So in summary, stressed cells produce nitric oxide, which binds to cytochrome c oxidase and halts the production of ATP synthase.

How does Red Light Therapy restore Cellular Health?

Remember, nitric oxide competes with oxygen and binds with cytochrome c oxidase, which stops the eventual production of ATP. Well, it might be best to consider red and near infrared light to be heroes when it comes to nitric oxide.

You see, red and near infrared light (with the right wavelengths and intensity) breaks the bond between nitric oxide and cytochrome c oxidase. This allows oxygen to bind to NADH, which restores the normal pathway for hydrogen ions to produce ATP synthase.[8] So in summary, red and near infrared light frees up cytochrome c oxidase to allow for the eventual production of ATP.

By breaking that bond and restoring the production of ATP, normal cellular metabolism can resume. And once our cells are healthy again, we’ll see the following benefits that have been proven time and time again through published clinical literature:

  • Increased collagen production due to stimulated fibroblasts via the release of cytokines[1]
  • Enhanced circulation through the formation of new capillaries[3]
  • Improved anti-inflammatory emissions due to increased lymph system activity[5]
  • Increased muscle recovery, peak athletic performance, and weight loss[10]
  • Enhanced fertility[11]
  • Reduced inflammation and joint pain[4]
  • And believe it or not, a lot more!
Why collagen is so important for enhanced Health?

Collagen is a long-chain amino acid and the most abundant protein in the body. It’s responsible for giving skin elasticity, hair its strength, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything in place. In fact, the collagen protein makes up 30% of the total protein in the body, and 70% of the protein in the skin![12]

While collagen is beneficial to the entire body, it’s most noticeably beneficial to the skin. This is because as a person ages, the epiderms (outer layer of skin) becomes thinner and loses elasticity through a process called elastosis. As this happens, a person tends to show more signs of aging and acquires more wrinkles.

But don’t fear. Red light therapy restores healthy cellular function, stimulating the production of collagen – which is why so many people have reported about the rejuvenating benefits of light therapy!


Red Light Therapy enhances Cellular Performance

By helping to restore natural cellular function, there’s a good chance that the consistent use of light therapy will leave you looking and feeling rejuvenated. But remember, wavelength and intensity are super important factors to consider when choosing a red light therapy device. Make sure you choose a device that delivers red light with the correct wavelength and an optimal amount of power.

How to use it?

A more comprehensive user guide is included with this product, with a specific condition suggestions and how to position the light, but basic treatment is as follows:

  • Distance: Apply from 0 – 2 meters 
  • Session Time: Continue for 2 – 15 minutes, depending on distance
  • Frequency: Do this 2 times to 14 times a week until results are felt
  • Maintenance: Continue using several times a week
How to install?

Door/Wall mounted, hang-able, stand alone

Turn the power on. Just need to switch o and then light work.
