What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy is a natural, chemical-free approach to improving the condition of your skin. Whether you are showing signs of aging, acne, stretch marks, scaring or side-effects from chemotherapy, Red Light is the treatment for you!

How does it work?

According to selfhacked.com, “most of red light’s effects are through the cells’ mitochondria absorbing light. The cytochrome c oxidase in the mitochondria absorbs red light, which causes it to release nitric oxide, increase ATP and decrease stress. This can then cause a chain reaction in the cells and (positively) affect responses such as cell formation, movement, death, and inflammation.” For more information on ATP, click here: https://www.luminultra.com/what-is-atp-and-what-does-it-do/.

What do I do to start RLT?

Stop by one of our 7 Beaches Tanning Center locations! Set up a session with one of our staff members for up to 12 minutes and step into the Red Light booth as you would
any other tanning bed or stand up. Our trained representatives are here to help you maximize the effectiveness of your treatment. Repeat visits are typically required. Unlimited spa services are available with any Diamond-level Beach Club Membership!

Bonus: At Beaches Tanning Center, we proudly offer “Vibra Shape” in our Red Light booths! This optional feature will enhance your experience by providing “a whole-body approach to beauty and fitness. This is made possible by the vibration plate built into the support frame. This high-quality training equipment was used in several studies by the European Space Agency and today is used mainly in physio treatment. A natural human walk is simulated using patented technology, which means that Vibra Shape, unlike other training equipment, is a 100% physiological training method.” (beauty-angel.eu) In short, this vibrating plate helps you burn calories and tone muscle during treatment sessions. Score!

Fun fact: HealthLine.com shares that in the early 1990s, RLT was used by scientists to help grow plants in space. The scientists found that the intense light from red light- emitting diodes (LEDs) helped promote growth and photosynthesis of plant cells! If this is a possible outcome, imagine what red light can do for your skin’s elasticity!
