Multitude of Benefits

The increased energy production helps to improve cellular function resulting in various benefits for the body, such as improved skin health, reduced pain and inflammation, improved muscle recovery, increase collagen production.

What do I wear during Red Light Facial Therapy?

Whatever you want! We recommend something comfy.

While we do encourage you to wash your face before Red Light Therapy treatments, makeup should not interfere with the effects of the LED lights. However, if your foundation or moisturizer contains sunscreen, it will block some of the light waves thereby lessening the effectiveness of the treatment.

The warmth emitted from the Red Light Therapy machine tends to create and overall sense of calm and tranquility. In rare cases, more sensitive skin may experience temporary redness or tightness.
