Red Light Therapy at Hydrology Wellness

Rejuvenate Your Skin and Boost Your Mood

The first thing you notice when looking at a young person is their glowing skin. From how they look to how they act, there’s an air of youthfulness that seems so out of reach for older folks. What’s behind that youthful glow? While there are many factors involved, red light therapy is one way you can boost your beauty and feel younger.

What is red light therapy?

For a Younger Appearance

Red light therapy, also known as lightbox therapy, is a low-intensity red LED light that offers benefits ranging from wrinkles and hair loss to pain relief. One of these benefits is healing, in which sunlight triggers cells in our skin to produce collagen, red light therapy mimics these effects with non-UV rays that are safely absorbed by your skin. Consistent exposure to red light causes your body to produce more blood vessels (hence increased blood flow), improving overall circulation. Increased circulation helps stimulate new cell growth and reduce inflammation throughout your body. This can be especially helpful for people who suffer from arthritis or tendinitis, among others.

What are the benefits of red light therapy?

Eliminate Pain And Boost Productivity

At Hydrology Wellness we strive to deliver the best red light therapy Miami has to offer so red light therapy is used to address several common skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, acne, and melasma. Red light therapy can also help rejuvenate dry or prematurely aging skin by stimulating collagen production. An additional topical antioxidant serum may be applied to increase effectiveness to benefit your skin during treatment further. Other therapeutic benefits from red light therapy range from improved blood circulation and reduced inflammation to better moods due to increased serotonin levels.

For A More Beautiful You

With red light therapy, aging skin, joint pain, muscle soreness, and chronic pain can all be effectively treated. Red light therapy has been used for years to treat psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions. The treatment is also effective for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal disc degeneration, or herniated discs. It’s now being researched as a possible treatment for dementia.

Your Red Light Therapy Procedure

Boost Your Skin Care Regimen

First, you will enter the red light chamber. After five minutes of processing, you can begin your daily routine depending on your needs. You must take care of yourself after red light therapy, so to reduce irritation or excessive itching (cool compresses should suffice), hydrate with water and drink something refreshing. Eating some healthy fruit for breakfast is an excellent way to start and add antioxidants (like vitamin C) into your diet and skincare routine.

First Time? What To Expect:

Service Duration: 10-20 minutes
Frequency: 3-5 weekly sessions

Red Light Therapy Results

Keep Your Skin Healthy

The results of your Miami red light therapy can vary significantly from person to person. Still, some expected benefits include increased energy levels, better skin tone, improved mood, and reduced pain. Red light therapy doesn’t treat illness or disease but instead boosts your body’s ability to heal itself through increased blood flow. Using it consistently can help reduce stress hormones and boost your natural production of endorphins for a feeling of overall well-being.

The Science Behind Hydrology's Red Light Therapy

Red Light Therapy: Is it Right for You?


Red light therapy presents a fresh strategy for tackling numerous health issues. Widely accepted in diverse medical realms, it furnishes customized treatments for those pursuing non-invasive remedies. The goals of red light therapy include fostering tissue repair, diminishing inflammation, easing pain, and boosting overall well-being. This article explores the diverse applications of red light therapy, shedding light on its efficacy for treating various health concerns and underlining its growing relevance in modern healthcare.


  1. Tissue Healing

Red light therapy aids tissue healing by boosting cellular repair. As red light reaches the skin, it's absorbed by mitochondria, fueling an increase in ATP production. This energy surge enhances cellular metabolism, speeding up tissue repair and regeneration, facilitating wound healing.


The study by Chaves et al. (2014) suggests that red light therapy assists in tissue healing by stimulating cellular processes. While there's debate over how red light is absorbed by mitochondria and cell membrane proteins, both pathways trigger the same response. Despite previous belief in the importance of coherence for therapeutic benefits, recent findings show that both LED and LASER therapies have similar effects. These effects include reduced inflammation, increased fibroblast proliferation, stimulation of angiogenesis, granulation tissue formation, and collagen synthesis. Thus, whether using LED or LASER, red light therapy effectively promotes skin wound healing, underscoring the need for precise treatment protocols based on wavelength and dose.

  1. Inflammation Reduction

Red light therapy combats inflammation by regulating immune responses and decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokines. This helps alleviate inflammation in diverse tissues and organs, addressing conditions like arthritis and inflammatory skin disorders. By reducing inflammation, red light therapy not only eases pain but also fosters tissue recovery and enhances overall function.


From the study conducted by Avci et al. (2014), red light therapy aids in reducing inflammation, making it beneficial for various conditions requiring healing stimulation and inflammation reduction. While low-level laser therapy (LLLT) demonstrates potential in addressing dermatological issues like pigmentation disorders, the optimal wavelength for specific applications remains uncertain. 

  1. Pain Relief

Red light therapy acts as a natural pain reliever, targeting both acute and chronic pain. The therapeutic wavelengths penetrate deep into tissues, triggering the release of endorphins, the body's pain-relieving chemicals. Furthermore, red light therapy blocks pain signals sent by nerve fibers, lowering pain perception. This analgesic effect makes it effective in managing various pain conditions, including musculoskeletal pain and migraines, offering a safe and non-invasive alternative to pharmaceuticals.


The study by Quisi et al. (2023) shows that red light therapy helps alleviate pain in patients with myofascial temporomandibular disorders (TMD). In this double-blind clinical trial, three groups received different treatments, including red LED light therapy and low-level laser therapy (LLLT). Both group B (LED light) and group C (LLLT) saw significant pain reduction compared to group A (placebo). Moreover, both treatment groups experienced a decrease in trigger points, indicating the effectiveness of red light therapy for TMD pain relief. The study concludes that both LED light and LLLT effectively relieve pain in myogenic TMD, with LED therapy offering advantages in safety and cost-effectiveness over LLLT.


In sum, red light therapy proves to be a versatile method for tackling diverse health issues, offering tailored treatments across medical fields. Its goals, including tissue healing, inflammation reduction, and pain relief, underscore its importance in modern healthcare. Studies like those by Chaves et al. (2014) and Avci et al. (2014) provide evidence supporting red light therapy's effectiveness in tissue repair and inflammation reduction, respectively. Moreover, research such as that by Quisi et al. (2023) demonstrates its ability to alleviate pain in temporomandibular disorders. These findings highlight red light therapy's potential as a safe, non-invasive, and cost-effective treatment, calling for further investigation and precise treatment guidelines to maximize its therapeutic impact in clinical settings.
