Red Light Therapy

Stimulate healing and regeneration with Red Light Therapy. A combination of near infrared, blue and red light wavelengths give health benefits including reduced pain and inflammation, improved circulation and treatment of common skin conditions.

Red Light Therapy

At Aqua-Tox we offer 20 minute sessions of Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, to promote healing and cell regeneration within the body.

The red light therapy technology that we offer gives the ability to utilise Red light, Blue light and Near Infrared light wavelengths. This technology allows us to treat a wider range of conditions than red light alone. 

This red light therapy can reach all the way into a cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration to help improve your appearance, performance and overall health and well-being.

Blue light therapy penetrates less deeply than red light and therefore is effective in treating many skin conditions.

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

Improves circulation

Dilates blood vessels which increases blood flow in the circulatory system.

Reduces inflammation

Eases symptoms associated with many conditions that cause inflammation including, autoimmune diseases, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries.

Reduces recovery time

Stimulates mitochondria and stem cells for faster recovery and accelerates the muscle repair process.

Improves skin health

Stimulates the production of collagen which increases tissue repair and can help to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scars.

Promotes cellular health

Stimulates cell regeneration and collagen production. This strengthens hair, improves skin elasticity and promotes connective tissue health.

Stimulates hair growth

Activates stem cells in the hair follicle to encourage active hair growth.

Blue Light Therapy Treatments & Benefits

Blue light therapy is a type of phototherapy that uses high-intensity blue light to treat various skin conditions, mood disorders, and sleep disorders.Used in conjunction with red light the therapy works by exposing the skin or the eyes to a certain wavelength of blue light, which triggers a biological response in the body.

Acne Treatment

Treats mild to moderate acne by reducing inflammation and killing acne-causing bacteria. An effective alternative to antibiotics & topical creams.

Precancerous Lesions and Skin Cancer

Studies have shown that blue light therapy can inhibit the growth of melanoma cells in localised areas.

Psoriasis Treatment

Effectively treats psoriasis by slowing down the growth of the skin cells and reducing inflammation.

Eczema Treatment

Treats mild to moderate eczema by inducing an anti-inflammatory effect lessening the symptoms and itching associated with eczema.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Blue light therapy can help alleviate symptoms of seasonal affective disorder by resetting the circadian rhythm and increasing serotonin levels in the brain.

Sleep Disorders Treatment

Treats sleep disorders by helping to regulate circadian rhythms. Blue light interacts with receptors in the eyes to signal the body to wake up and be alert.

Light Therapy FAQs

The red light device emits 5 different wavelengths of red light and infrared wavelengths.

The red light spectrums at 630nm and 660nm work at the skin level and the level just below the skin. This spectrum can help with a number of skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, acne breakouts, hair loss and psoriasis. At this level the red light can also help to reduce swelling, inflammation and fatigue.

The Near Infrared lights at 810nm, 830nm and 850nm work at a deeper level targeting bone and joint health along with having overall neurological benefits.

Near Infrared wavelengths can contribute to improvements in wound healing, bone repair and growth and can also stimulate the production of collagen. Increased collagen production can improve connective tissue health as well as having aesthetic benefits such as reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and cellulite.

Near Infrared wavelengths can also be used to enhance muscle recovery by decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation which can lead to increased muscle mass after training.

Yes, Red Light therapy is safe and the device that we use to emit both red light and near infrared wavelengths has been FDA approved and made in an FDA approved facility. We are dedicated to providing the safest and highest quality treatments within our clinic. Red Light therapy has a number of health benefits and is deemed safe to use as treatment for a variety of health conditions and ailments.

 Blue light therapy uses a wavelength of around 415 nanometers, while red light therapy uses a wavelength of around 660 nanometers.

Blue light therapy is mainly used to treat skin conditions and mood disorders, while red light therapy is used to treat inflammation, pain, and muscle recovery.

Blue light therapy is thought to be most effective when used with red and near infrared light therapy. 

A therapist will introduce you to the therapy devices, ensure you’re comfortable and advise you on the best way to use your treatment time to effectively target any health concerns that you may have. You will then stand in front of the red light panels to receive the treatment. We recommend minimal clothing to ensure that the red light can penetrate your skin and give the full benefits. As the session lasts 20 minutes it is recommended that you turn around after 10 minutes and treat both sides of your body. If you have a specific area that you are looking to target then the therapist will advise on the best way to treat this within the 20 minutes.

No, red light therapy does not damage the skin and does not use damaging UV light like a sunbed.

Many people see and feel the benefits after just one treatment. Initial benefits included improved sleep, brighter complexion and reduced aches and pains. If you wish to use red light therapy regularly then you can make this more cost efficient by booking a course. Red light therapy is also available with our memberships. Please see our memberships page for more details.
For overall benefits we do recommend the combination of both red light and infrared light. However your treatment can be set up to run just with red light wavelengths or just the infrared wavelengths if there is a specific requirement for this. Our therapists will be able to advise on the best course of treatment for you and any specific conditions that you wish to treat.

Unfortunately not. If you are using a topical steroid or eczema cream you will need to wait for 2 weeks after the last application to have red light therapy. 

Young people aged 13 and over can have red light therapy treatment when accompanied by an adult.  

Our Red light therapy is located in a private room in our clinic in Hertfordshire. You will have the option of getting changed in the room as red light is best carried out with minimal clothing.
