Red light therapy initiates a complex series of cascading bio-chemical and physiological events. The cells in the body react to the light energy by increasing their level of activity, releasing nitric oxide, and stimulating blood flow and circulation. Through this process, new collagen is created, healing aging skin.Collagen is the primary building block of the skin. But as we age, the amount of collagen and elastin produced in our skin starts to slow down and cause wrinkles. This means the key to anti-aging is bringing collagen and elastin back into the dermis.
Red light therapy is based on technology developed by NASA to heal wounds. In several decades of independent research worldwide, particularly in Russia and Europe, intense red and infrared light therapy has shown powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues. In fact, research shows that red light therapy is also effective in treating age spots, hair loss, weak nails, muscle strain, inflammation, mild pain and more.
The depth of the red light wavelengths allows for greater penetration and the delivery of more photons to the cells. Once in the cells, photons are absorbed by the mitochondria, the organelle responsible for respiration and energy production. This light energy increases cellular metabolism, leading to the production of collagen and elastin.
Quasar Bio-Tech’s red light therapy devices emit red light at four wavelengths using 65 milliwatts of energy, which more joules of light than any other skin care tool. The combination of red, amber and infrared light stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The device also harnesses Quasar’s breakthrough C-Factor pulse modulation technology to further increase collagen in the skin.
