Red Light Therapy
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy and Photobiomodulation, is a therapeutic technique that uses red and near infrared wavelengths of light to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, as well as other conditions such as joint, tendon and muscle discomfort.
There are many different types of red light therapy. Our ROUGE red light device help reduce cosmetic skin issues, such as stretch marks and wrinkles. They are also used to treat more serious conditions, psoriasis, slow-healing wounds, and even the side effects of chemotherapy.
How does it work?
Red light produces a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it’s where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
By increasing the function of the mitochondria using red light therapy, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.

Note: Red light therapy is generally considered to be very safe and there are no known side effects. However, there are some considerations where you should avoid using red light or at least discuss it with your physician.
If you are sensitive to light, we recommend speaking to your doctor prior to using Rouge. If you are pregnant, have cancerous or potentially cancerous lesions, or if you are taking medication such as Tetracycline, Digoxin, Retin A, or any other photosensitizing drug, you should speak to your healthcare provider before using Rouge. Also, you should not use Rouge on infants.
