Red Light Therapy for the Face

Red light therapy has been used in dermatologist and esthetician offices for years. With new tools on the market, the benefits of red light can be obtained anywhere. Red light therapy is a technique that uses low-level wavelengths of visible red LEDs to rejuvenate the skin – with no harmful rays.

Red light therapy helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, inflammation, and sun damage. It also promotes the production of collagen, extremely important in anti-aging. It’s non-invasive, pain free and does not cause any downtime due to peeling or other side effects, consistency is key. By encouraging your guests to use these tools at home as well as benefiting from professional treatments, results will be achieved much quicker.

The closer the light is to your skin, the better the results will be. We recommend at least 5 minutes a day, but you can safely use the red light for 20 minutes to really boost your results. Slowly move the light in an upward motion around the cheeks, forehead, eyes, jawline and neck – 3 to 5 times a week is recommended.

The SolaWave Advanced Skincare Wand uses visible red light with a centroid wavelength of 660 nanometers, optimal to improve the skin’s appearance. In addition to red light therapy, the wand also delivers microcurrent, therapeutic warmth and a facial massage to increase the skin’s glow.
