How to get the most out of your red light therapy device
Red light therapy has been used for centuries to treat a variety of health issues. This type of treatment is especially popular in the natural wellness community, but there are many skeptics out there who question whether it's actually effective in treating anything at all. Well, I'm here to tell you that red light therapy can be incredibly beneficial if used correctly! If you're interested in giving this treatment method a try, here are some tips on how to get started:
Before using your device, do a patch test to make sure you're not allergic to the light.
Before using your red light therapy device, it is important to do a patch test. This will ensure that you are not allergic to the light.
If you have sensitive skin, we recommend doing a patch test 24 hours before using your device for the first time. If there's no reaction after 24 hours, then proceed with regular use of your red light therapy device.
How To Do A Patch Test:
Place one drop of water on an area of clean skin on your inner forearm (or shoulder).
Hold still while it dries completely; this may take up to 10 minutes depending on how humid it is where you live! Don't move around too much because this will make sure that the water doesn't run down into any other areas where it could cause irritation later on if left unchecked by gravity's pull during this period in time when everything seems so normal...
Make sure your device is set at the correct time and power level.
Your red light therapy device should be set at the correct time and power level. If it's not, you won't get the most out of your treatment.
Don't set your device too low or too high: A setting that is too low will not give you any benefit, but one that is too high may damage your skin. If you're using a new device for the first time, start with a lower intensity setting and work up from there if needed.
Don't leave it on for too long: The recommended length of treatment varies depending on which product and manufacturer you're using--but generally speaking, 10-20 minutes per day should suffice for most people (and no more than 30). The more often you use this kind of technology (especially if it involves heat), the more likely it is to cause irritation or burn marks over time; thus many experts recommend keeping sessions short while still getting all their benefits!
Use the device in an area with good airflow if possible.
While red light therapy is a great option for keeping your skin healthy and glowing, it's not a replacement for sunscreen. Be sure to apply sunscreen as directed by your dermatologist.
If possible, use the device in an area with good airflow (that means not in the middle of a humid room). This will help keep your skin dry and prevent irritation.
Avoid using the device on acne-prone areas of your face such as around the nose or mouth--it could make matters worse!
Choose a device that's comfortable for you to use.
When choosing a red light therapy device, it's important to think about how you'll be using it. If you have arthritis or other joint pain, for example, choose a model with a light head that's easy for you to hold. If you have small hands and prefer smaller devices, look for one with a smaller-sized head--or even consider looking at glasses models instead of those designed as hand-helds.
Don't use the device on broken or damaged skin.
You should also avoid using the device on broken or damaged skin, as well as if you have a sunburn.
Red light therapy devices are not recommended for use in conjunction with acne treatments, open wounds and eczema.
Make sure to use sun protection while using your red light therapy device.
While red light therapy is a great way to rejuvenate your skin, it's important to make sure that you are protecting yourself from the sun. Red light devices do not provide UV protection and should not be used as a stand-in for sunscreen or other forms of sun protection.
Sunscreen should be applied liberally before using a red light device and reapplied every two hours if you're spending time outdoors. If possible, wear long sleeves and pants when outside during peak hours (10 AM - 2 PM). If this isn't an option for you, consider using an umbrella or hat to shield your face from direct sunlight as much as possible during those hours.
Red light therapy can be beneficial if used correctly
Red light therapy is a type of light therapy that uses red light to treat skin conditions. It can be used on its own or with other treatments such as laser therapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT), and intense pulsed light (IPL).
Red light has been shown to help with acne, wrinkles, hair loss and more. If you're interested in knowing more about how red light works and whether it might be right for you--or if you just want some tips on getting the most out of your device--read on!
The bottom line is that you should use your red light therapy device as directed by the manufacturer, and make sure that you're getting the most out of it. If you have any questions or concerns about using your device, please contact us at [email protected].
