Red Light Therapy for Anti Aging

Light therapy (also known as photobiomodulation) is the application of light with specific wavelengths to the body for the purposes of influencing biology. The most common form of light therapy uses red light, which is visible as the color red, and/or near infrared light, which is not visible but can be felt as heat. Blue light is also often used in light therapy for skin conditions. Different colors of light have different depths of skin penetration, with red light and near infrared light penetrating the deepest. 

Light therapy can support skin health in a variety of different ways. Through its effects on mitochondria, light therapy can increase cellular energy production and modulate oxidative stress. In the skin, this increased energy can be used to support normal processes such as collagen and elastin production. And by modulating ROS production and oxidative stress, there is a shift towards skin rejuvenation rather than skin breakdown.

The anti-aging effects of light therapy are often referred to as “skin rejuvenation”. This includes outcomes like increased collagen synthesis, increased elastin production, extracellular matrix regeneration, regulation of oil production, and regulation of the pigment producing cells of the skin. Clinically, these manifest as reduced wrinkles, improved skin appearance, and improved skin pigmentation. Studies show results such as smoother skin, wrinkle reduction and improved skin elasticity, and normalization of skin pigmentation. The effect of red light therapy on wrinkles can be quite dramatic, with one study showing a 30% decrease in eye wrinkle volume. Most skin rejuvenation studies use both red and near infrared light.

Importantly, the use of light therapy to regenerate skin is gentle and “non-ablative”, which means that it doesn’t harm the epidermis of the skin and require downtime for healing. This contrasts with many popular anti-aging treatments such as microneedling, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, which stimulative collagen synthesis and improve appearance by damaging and resurfacing the outer layer of the skin. 

At Fringe, we view aging as something to be embraced and supported using natural therapies, which is why we developed  the Fringe red light face mask. Our mask is hands free, wireless, and uses 234 hard working LED light chips to deliver red and near infrared light to the entire face. It also has the option to deliver blue light if blemishes are a problem. Use the healing power of light and treat yourself to healthy, radiant looking skin in the comfort of your own home!

Dr. Genevieve Newton, DC, PhD  spent close to 20 years as a researcher and educator in the field of nutritional sciences before joining Fringe as its Scientific Director. Gen’s job is to “bring the science” that supports Fringe’s products and education. She is passionate about all things Fringe, and is a deep believer in healing body, mind and spirit using the gifts of the natural world.
