Infraredi: Red Light Therapy

An effective, safe & non-invasive treatment to reduce pain & inflammation

Red light therapy is fast becoming the treatment of choice for people struggling with acute or chronic pain. It provides a natural, non-invasive and safe treatment for people of all ages.

Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, uses medical grade LED’s which emit red and near-infrared wavelengths of light. The wavelengths, which range from 630nm to 850nm, penetrate the body at different depths, which allows them to target different tissues, from the surface of the skin to muscles and bones.

The technology used in modern red light therapy devices was developed by NASA exactly three decades ago. Initially, the space agency experimented with red light to see whether it would boost plant growth, but soon they noticed that it also helped their scientists’ wounds and injuries heal faster.

In the thirty years since this discovery, red light therapy has become a well-established form of therapy for various conditions. As of now, there are over 6000 clinical trials researching the use and benefits of red and near-infrared light for numerous health problems. In the USA, red light therapy has been FDA-approved since 2002.

When it comes to pain relief, red light therapy helps through several mechanisms. Penetrating under the skin, red light improves blood circulation, leading to better oxygenation of tissue and greater mobility and distribution of immune system cells. It also improves the drainage of fluids from the affected tissue. When combined, all of these factors help reduce swelling and inflammation.

On a cellular level, red light has been shown to stimulate mitochondrial proliferation, boost ATP-energy production, and promote cell homeostasis. This gives the cells the energy and oxygen they need to heal damaged tissue faster.

Apart from its healing properties, red light therapy also acts as an analgesic. Research shows that red light therapy treatments elevate levels of both beta-endorphins and ACTH (Adrenocorticotropin) in plasma, leading to a significant reduction in pain levels.

Many people suffering from intense pain also experience insomnia. Treatments with red light simulate the natural wavelengths of the light present at sunset. This triggers the release of melatonin and regulates other hormones involved in the Circadian rhythm. The optimal balance of these hormones ensures that a healthy sleep-wake pattern is established. Not only does this bring relief to patients, especially those who suffer from chronic pain, but it can also speed up the healing process, providing the body with the necessary time to recover.

Red light therapy has come a long way since its discovery. Modern red light therapy devices are used globally by numerous clinics and health professionals as the preferred form of treatment for pain relief and healing.

Apart from its efficacy, one of the many reasons for the popularity of red light treatments is that they are completely non-invasive, and there are no known adverse effects. Red and near-infrared light do not produce heat or cause burns, irritation, or redness. There is no damage to the skin nor an increased risk of skin cancer. In fact, numerous studies have shown that red light is beneficial to the skin and can be used to improve intradermal collagen production and even to treat and alleviate the symptoms of uncomfortable conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.

A proudly Australian company, Infraredi leads the way when it comes to premium red light therapy devices for personal and clinical use. All Infraredi products are made from high-quality materials and employ innovative, science-backed technology.

The new Infraredi Pro range uses powerful, dual lense LED’s that offer an irradiance of over 200mW/cm2, which allows for shorter, more effective treatments. The superior intensity, along with the modular design, ensures that the devices can be used both for targeted treatments as well as for full-body set-ups. The devices in this range also have a fully adjustable pulsing mode, which is the preferred method of therapy for conditions such as osteoarthritis. With a large number of easily adjustable settings, Infraredi devices are perfect for various conditions, and equally effective for local injuries and more general pain associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia.

All Infraredi Pro devices use the new Multi- Wavelength technology which incorporates the four most bioactive wavelengths of 630nm, 660nm, 830nm and 850nm.
