Red Light Therapy Q&A

What is red-light therapy?

Red-light therapy is an integrative technique that uses low-level wavelengths of red light to promote natural processes, like healing, within your body.

During treatment, you lie on your back under a special red light. The light emits low-level wavelengths, which penetrate your skin, strengthening the mitochondria in your cells. Strengthening your cells’ mitochondria –– the place where their energy is created –– helps them repair damage, rejuvenate, and fight off invaders.

What health problems can benefit from red-light therapy?

Desert Moon Wellness uses red-light therapy to:

  • Promote wound healing
  • Improve hair growth
  • Repair sun damage
  • Diminish scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and fine lines
  • Relieve pain and inflammation
  • Build collagen and tighten skin
  • Treat overuse injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome and Achilles tendinitis

Red-light therapy can complement your weight loss efforts. Targeted light energy can eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

Am I a candidate for red-light therapy?

Your Desert Moon Wellness provider reviews your medical records, asks about your symptoms and treatment goals, and completes a physical exam.

If you want smoother, younger-looking skin or have chronic pain that hasn’t improved with other treatments, you qualify for red-light therapy.

What does red-light therapy involve?

Red-light therapy is an outpatient procedure that takes 15-30 minutes.

On the day of your appointment, you change into a hospital gown and lie on an exam table. Your Desert Moon Wellness provider positions an infrared light over the table, pointing it at the area of your body being treated.

You wear protective eyewear to prevent exposure to the light’s infrared rays. They then turn on the red light and leave the room. The red light penetrates your skin and energizes the mitochondria in the targeted cells, triggering your body’s healing process.

At the end of the session, your provider turns off the red light and schedules your next treatment.

Does red-light therapy take more than one treatment?

Red-light therapy is a cumulative treatment, so it takes several sessions to experience the maximum benefits. Desert Moon Wellness typically recommends a series of at least three 5-10 minute treatments* spaced a week or two apart.
