Short & Simple: Low Level Light Therapy is a process of using various wavelengths (colors) of cold light to trigger positive reactions in human cells, making them more efficient and productive.
More Involved/technical: Low Level Light Therapy, or “LLLT” for short, describes a means of modifying cellular activity using non-thermal light to increase their function and performance. The process involves exposing the surface of the skin to either visible or invisible (infrared) energy, which is absorbed by photoreceptors in each cell. Once absorbed, the light energy triggers a series of metabolic events which lead to increases in mitochondrial respiration/oxygenation, stimulating the cells’ natural regeneration processes.
LLLT is safe, clinically proven with no known side effects and widely used for mild to moderate acne, pain and inflammation, thinning hair and anti-aging remedies such as encouraging collagen and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
