3 Important Checks Before Buying an RLT Device
The Right Wavelength For Your Condition
It is important to know wavelengths that are best for you. Skin conditions that are nearer to the skin's surface are best treated by red light wavelengths in the range of 630nm to 660nm whereas conditions requiring deeper stimulation of the mitochondria will benefit from devices using near infrared light wavelengths between 800nm and 855nm. Choose your device based on red light therapy benefits you're looking for.
Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF)
Sustained exposure to high EMF is harmful. It is therefore important to know the EMF levels of the red light therapy device that you're going to buy. Most red light therapy devices come with safe usage instructions and pose no threat or harmful effects. Find the EMF before you buy a device to enjoy the rejuvenating and restorative benefits of red light therapy in the comfort of your own home without safety concerns.
Power Density or Irradiance (mW/cm²)
Irradiance and wavelength (in conjunction) are the two most important considerations in selecting a red light therapy device. Light irradiance is the power density of red light over a given area. Its the number of photons that are flowing through a certain area and are available for absorption into your cells. With a red light therapy device with low power density, you won't get the benefits that you should.

Red Light Therapy at Home by RLT Home
Red light therapy is a skin/body treatment therapy that uses Light-Emitting Diode (LED) to send concentrated red light wavelengths into the cells through the skin.
In addition, whenever the body cells are treated using the Red Light Therapy, many repairment effects can occur, inducing health benefits like increased collagen production that makes the skin look younger, improved skin tone, and reduction in inflammation/ redness of the skin.
The depth of penetration of the light into the skin intensifies as the light wavelength increases. The red light is absorbed by the skin receptors and then used to create a bio-effect. The level of light penetration is a determining factor.
This doesn't mean that any red-colored light bulb can do a therapeutic job on your skin. The significant effects and benefits depend primarily on the level of energy of red light concentrated therein. This is emphasized should you intend to perform the red-light therapy from home.
Ensuring that light of a certain "wavelength and intensity" is important. Every wavelength is proven to provide a certain set of benefits.
With modern technology and our world-class red light therapy devices, such red or infrared light capable of achieving the desired benefit can be availed from home.
The LED red-light therapy devices are now part of the latest skincare trend rather applied at homes than seeing the dermatologist.
The red-light therapy from home, can, with the push of a button, cure fine lines and wrinkles, signs of aging, acne, hair loss, sore muscles, skin redness, help with weight loss, improve vision, treat eye conditions, treat anxiety and depression, all with the effectiveness of this intense red-light emission.
While it's easy, it is erroneous to think red-light is synonymous with infrared light, it is noteworthy to know that light across the visible spectrum are blue, yellow, amber, and red light. Light beyond the visible spectrum is infrared. Infrared light comes after red light; it is of a longer wavelength and invisible to the naked human eye.
Red light wavelengths vary from 600 to 750 nanometers and Infrared light varies from 750 to 880 nanometers. Our state of the art devices are specifically designed to emit these wavelengths.
630nm wavelength (red light) is known to be beneficial for conditions of the skin - in particular lines, wrinkles, signs of ageing, psoriasis, superficial skin cancers and acne. This wavelength also helps hair growth according to various recent studies.
The 660nm wavelength (red light) is known to help with: reduction in training fatigue & inflammation, bone health, swelling reduction following an injury and even quicker wound healing and nerve pain treatment.
The 810nm wavelength (Near-infrared Light) helps with recovery and fast healing, brain function, depression & anxiety and hair re-growth.
The 830nm Wavelength (Near-infrared Light) helps with fighting infections, reduction in swelling, bruising and is particularly useful for athletes in assisting with rapid recovery.
The 850nm wavelength (Near-infrared Light) helps with muscle pain, muscle gain and enhanced muscle repair after workouts. The 850nm wavelength is also known to enhance the benefits of all the above-mentioned wavelengths.
Regarding their respective benefits, infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin, which is often used in combination with the red light.
However, infrared's deeper penetration into the skin doesn't necessarily imply that it's better than red light. They're just different wavelengths producing different bio-effects.
They work perfectly together, which is why RLT Home devices are specially designed to provide all beneficial red and infrared wavelengths at the same time, helping in enhanced and quicker results.
What you seek to achieve determines which light therapy you choose: to reduce the signs of ageing, go for red light or combination with infrared. Or are you more interested in muscle recovery?
How it has become easy and affordable to self-help with RLT at home because of modern-day RLT home devices.
In popular culture, notable celebrities like Jessica Alba have hopped on the trend and added to its widespread popularity, appeal, and public acceptance, as is the case with most home-friendly, high-tech beauty creations.
And it's for good reason. In the last couple of years there have been over 65 studies that have proved with little doubt that red light therapy is real and it's effects are life-changing.
Our FDA approved devices are the best in class devices to use at home for safety and effectiveness. RLT Home is a name you can trust and we back this claim with 2+ years of guarantee on each of our products.
Our blog contains a collection of credible resources that prove that RLT is real and very beneficial - science-backed.
Healing Red Light Therapy
Intensity of the Light is as Important as the Wavelength
The red light is likely to touch the skin surface at 630 nanometers. Yet, reaching up to 680 nanometers means you're now going deeper into the dermis. This is where you're mostly able to treat collagen, elastin production and the like. Only when you create a certain level of red light energy that these therapeutic benefits are achieved. That's why not just the wavelengths, but the power with which the light is supplied is of great importance.
In short, don't just purchase a red light bulb and expect to achieve a dermatological impact. These therapeutic goodies are only derived by creating a certain level of red light energy.
That's why at RLT Home, our devices lead the world in power levels with low EMFs (electric and magnetic fields), negligible flicker percentages, and are tested to bring out the benefits RLT and Infrared light is supposed to.
What Does Red Light Therapy Treat?
Originally, the red-light therapy has been used since the 1960s after NASA developed it to help repair and heal astronauts' tissue. Conversely, it seems to be regarded as a new trend.
So far, researches have shown that red-light therapy can provide numerous benefits to the body head-to-toe. One of the most popular of them is its ability to treat skin issues such as sores, acne, and wrinkles.
1. Collagen Production: Stimulation of collagen production is one of the effects of red-light therapy.
(Collagen is a protein that thickens and firms the skin, preventing wrinkles and fine lines).
2. Redness & Inflammation: With this, the red-light therapy speeds up the natural healing process.
3. Hair loss: This can also be treated with the therapy. Red light stimulates hair growth.
4. Wound healing: With the stimulation of the skin proteins, the therapy helps to heal wounds fast.
5. Acne & Dark Spots: As said earlier, acne (and dark spots) are also treated with red-light therapy.
6. Muscle recovery: It also aids in connective tissue healing and muscle recovery.
7. Anxiety and Depression - Studies show significant benefits of red light and near red infrared light therapy on mental health conditions such as depression.
This shows that ageing isn't the only skin issue red light therapy from home seeks to remediate.
