What Is Red Light Therapy?

Over the course of the last few years, we’ve seen a parade of different strategies, methods, and formulas come into the mainstream to help with a number of different ailments. Some of them work, and some of them don’t, but the end goal is always simple - to provide you with a better quality of life. In our view, there’s a clear distinction between the best and the rest, and the answer is red light therapy.

Throughout this article, our goal and our aim is to convince you that red light therapy is the way to go with any nagging problems that you may have. Yes, we know, it’s easy to promise the world and then fail to deliver, but our track record of happy customers combined with our top-of-the-line products should give you the peace of mind that you’ve been looking for.

Today, we want to take you through several different rhymes and reasons as to why we’re so confident in red light therapy. That includes running down the actual definition, diving deep into the benefits of red light therapy, and working through the best way to utilize your products in the comfort of your own home.

Get ready, folks, because we’re about to take you on a journey that’ll really open your eyes.

What is the definition of red light therapy?

A lot of people can find the idea of red light therapy alone quite frightening, and we can’t say that we’re overly surprised by that. It’s pretty popular these days to dismiss a new, trendy product or idea without actually reading too much into it, but in reality, that doesn’t even represent 1% of the story. Yes, exposing your skin to a device, lamp or laser doesn’t feel natural, but with the passage of time and experience comes the understanding that it’s a truly wonderful creation.

In essence, you’re using wavelengths that are being transmitted to parts of your body that aren’t functioning as well as they could - or are outright injured. From there, red light therapy helps to improve the circulation of oxygen-laden blood in your body and can make you feel like a brand-new person. That may sound like an exaggeration, but trust us, it’s true.

You can conduct faster healing of deep tissue concerns, improve your physical standing and generally operate at a much higher level in all aspects of life. It’s a type of photomedicine that is unparalleled when compared to others, and it’s not hard to understand why there’s such a passion behind it.

The benefits of red light therapy

Now that we’ve ironed out some of the more specific details, let’s focus on the really good stuff. If you’ve read this far, then that probably means you’ve got an investment in finding out why red light therapy is so great and how it can help you both day-to-day and in the long term. If that’s the case, then keep on reading, because we’ve got a lot to tell you.

P.S: We’re only just scratching the surface!

Reducing wrinkles

There are very few people out there who can actively say that they enjoy the process of getting older and, in turn, getting wrinkles. Sure, it’s a look that people can pull off if they are so inclined, but it’s not exactly going to be your first choice - or even your second. So, instead of going down the expensive surgery route, why not opt for something slightly more feasible?

We are, as you’ve probably guessed, talking about red light therapy. You can stimulate the DNA and the ATP in your body to help activate the production of collagen, which is something that often stops around the age of 30. That extends to our elastin, which improves the overall texture of our skin, and hey presto, you’re already looking and feeling much younger.

Fixing joint pain

Every single movement you make and breath you take (pardon the 80s reference) is critical, regardless of what it is you’re trying to achieve. So, it goes without saying that you want to do everything in your power to make that far less invasive and difficult. If such simple aspects of your physical well-being are obstructed or put in jeopardy, then that should serve as an immediate red flag.

In a study conducted many years ago, it was revealed that low-level laser therapy (with the correct dosage) can reduce pain in chronic joint disorders. Yes, that’s right, chronic. That could be the difference between waking up with a smile on your face and waking up in agony, and as you begin to age, these are commodities that you cannot take for granted.

Helping the whole family

In red light therapy, the target audience can often be seen as those who are entering middle age. We understand why that’s the case, given that some of the conditions we’ve discussed are more likely to impact you when the gray hairs start appearing. However, we shouldn’t get away from the fact that all members of your family have the ability to benefit from this.

Firstly, there’s no telling when signs of early arthritis or other general health problems may begin, meaning you can share the love with your better half, younger siblings, and even children. Plus, in a study conducted almost a decade ago, it was noted that around 20% of veterinary clinics are now using red light therapy too, meaning your furry friends can also benefit!

Getting rid of blemishes

We all like to take pride in our personal appearance, and beyond that, it can do some real damage to our self-esteem if blemishes begin to arise. When it comes to actual conditions, one of the most common that is suffered around the world is eczema, with people suffering from many different types. As those individuals will know, it’s not the easiest thing to treat, either.

Alas, thanks to red light therapy, the whole thing has gotten a little bit simpler. The use of red light can help to reduce the level of irritation, and with no extra side effects, this is one hell of a first step towards feeling like yourself again. Your skin is going to be better off for it but in your own self, you can move forward in a direction that doesn’t feel nearly as worrisome.

Encouraging physical exercise

One of the most aggravating elements of being injured, or hurt in any kind of long-term way, is that you’re restricted in what you can do. You may not be a marathon runner or even someone who particularly enjoys exercise, but once you have that option taken away from you entirely, it can feel as if you’re drowning with no way of reaching the surface.

Through red light therapy, you can gain an entirely new perspective to go alongside a body that feels almost brand new. There are endless doctors out there who will confirm that physical exercise, in whatever form you desire, is good for you. It can help to get the blood flowing, help you lose weight, and help prevent or stave off any relapses in pain you experience in the future.

How to use red light therapy at home

As we’ve already alluded to, there are several ways in which red light therapy can make you feel better within yourself both mentally and physically - but we’d argue that the best points are yet to come. After all, we all want to be able to relax in a safe environment, and that’s why we feel the need to lay out the game plan for using red light therapy at home.

Whether you’re on vacation or sitting on the sofa, you can find a solution wherever you look!

Start at a slow pace

As is the case with any new activity or treatment, it’s better to start slow and ease your way into the process. Sure, you can read every single great review in the book, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be an overnight fix. If you follow this line of thinking, or you’d like to do so, then we’re going to offer up a way to operate that won’t put you too far out of your comfort zone.

You can kickstart by using your new NovaaLab product or device for just five minutes, giving you the chance to suss it out and feel what all the hype is really about. If you started that on a Monday, then throughout the remainder of the week you can begin to work your way up to 20 minutes instead of five, building a platform that is consistent and won’t let you get too carried away.

Get a routine

The majority of people out there have a routine when they wake up in the morning. You’ll want to shower, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, get ready, walk the dog, work a full day, eat dinner, and get up to any number of other activities. As such, finding a place for red light therapy in that sort of environment can quickly become overwhelming.

That’s why you need structure. It’s about carving out time and setting alarms to remember when to use your red light therapy, making sure you avoid distractions throughout. That might sound like an obvious thing to do, but this isn’t a lifestyle you want to rush. Don’t throw two sessions together in the morning back-to-back - spread it out, give yourself time to adjust, and work out what suits your body.

Know when to stop

At NovaaLab, we’ve worked incredibly hard to fine-tune our devices in the kind of way that leaves our customers feeling happy and satisfied. So, we thought it was wise to talk about knowing when to stop with red light therapy. It can be tempting to go over the top and really push the limits of what’s possible with this new setup, but we’d strongly advise against that.

During a specific session, you’re able to decrease the amount of time that it takes to finish up when it feels like you’ve had the proper amount of exposure. As well as that, you can also take some time off if you begin to notice redness on your skin, which is a problem that can be easily treated by having a break. There’s no need to push the tempo, especially if you want this to help for many years to come.

NovaaLab is here to help

Whether you’re in a dull job, an exciting job, or something that just helps you make a bit of cash, the end game in all circumstances should be to make a difference - at least, that’s how we look at it. We hope that we’ve given you a pretty solid insight into why red light therapy can change your life, but if you need a little bit more convincing, then why not visualize it for yourself?

The NovaaLab family is just that - a family. Instead of making products for money, we’re doing it because we care. We’re doing it because we’ve seen a gap in the market that will allow customers all over the world to see steady, positive results. They say it can often take a village, but in this industry and in this team, we fully believe that we’ve developed a system that can change everything.

Anyone out there who feels stressed, anxious, or in pain can knock on our door, and we’ll always be happy to answer. Whether it be because you have a question, you’re intrigued by the promise of red light therapy, or you just don’t know where to start with all of our available products, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you’re taking a leap of faith with us and for that, we’re eternally grateful.
