What should you expect when you get NIR red light therapy?


Since NIR red light therapy is a specialized type of red light therapy, it utilizes what is called near-infrared (NIR) red light. Through the use of red light, it stimulates the skin at a cellular level by stimulating ATP and cellular energy transport. Through this process, it allows the cells to move necessary hormones and peptides more quickly, improving the appearance of the skin and giving it a more youthful appearance. Some effects clients can expect after receiving NIR red light therapy include improving skin consistency and smoothing the area of fine lines or wrinkles; reducing inflammation, which can be beneficial for those with acne or who frequently experience puffiness in the face or other parts of the body; improving hair growth in those with androgenetic alopecia; and it can also be used to improve injuries not related to the skin, such as recovering from sports injuries, as it improves the healing.

Do you feel anything during NIR red light therapy?


Since NIR red light therapy involves the use of light, clients will not feel anything besides a slight warming sensation in the area of treatment during the procedure. Since the light is different than the lights used in tanning beds or stand-up tanning beds, you will not have to worry about burning the skin and have no risk of feeling any pain.  Since it is near-infrared red light, it is still visible to the naked eye, and you will be given glasses during your procedure so that there is no risk of damage to the eyes. There are NIR red light therapy lasers that do have a cooling effect, and it is worth discussing before treatment the specific type of laser being used for your treatment so you know what to expect during the procedure.

How do you look after NIR red light therapy?


Since everyone’s skin is unique, your results may vary, and this can also be based on the depth that the red light travels. Most clients who have used NIR red light therapy note that they can see improvement in fine lines after their first procedure, with wrinkles improving in appearance over a few treatments. Those with acne also report that after a few days following their procedure, the skin has become less irritated, and inflammation from the acne has been greatly reduced. You may also notice some redness in the treatment area, and this is normal and should not be a concern. Some clients may also have some minor itching in the area as well. Both of these symptoms should dissipate over a few hours. If you experience long-term irritation extending over a few days, it is important to discuss this with the specialist who did your treatment, as NIR red light therapy may not be the best treatment for your skin concerns.  

Since NIR red light therapy involves light going directly into the skin, you may also have some photosensitivity after your treatment, and it is recommended to avoid direct sunlight for a few weeks following your treatment. If it cannot be avoided, make sure you use a high SPF sunscreen on the treated area or areas.

How long does it take to see the benefits of NIR red light therapy?


Some clients may notice results after their first treatment over the few days following, and those with greater concerns may benefit from multiple treatments to get the best overall outcome. Most will see improvement over a longer period, as multiple treatments help with cell regeneration and cellular energy transport, and create more long-term results. It is important to have your NIR red light therapy done in a medical setting since the technology being used has been studied for safety, whereas at-home devices may not be created with the same safety in mind and regulations as medical devices, which in turn can cause burning of the skin and create the potential to damage the skin rather than improve its appearance.
