How to Calculate a Red Light Therapy Dose

How to Calculate a Red Light Therapy Dose

A dose of red light therapy is a quantity of energy measured in joules from light with a wavelength of 600 to 1200 nanometers.

A dose of red light therapy is a quantity of energy measured in joules from light with a wavelength of 600 to 1200 nanometers. Whether the dose we just defined is actually helpful to the body depends on the wavelength being the right one for the target treatment, and
the energy quantity being sufficient to kick off energy-creation and healing cascades of events.

Red Light Therapy for Neuropathy: Diabetic or Idiopathic

Red Light Therapy for Neuropathy: Diabetic or Idiopathic

Neuropathy is damage, dysfunction, or degeneration of peripheral nerves that transmit signals between the central nervous system and the body. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, and loss of sensation.

The best Novaa Lab devices for neuropathy pain relief are the Healing Pad and the Extra Strength Laser. They have the advantage of directly contacting the skin which allows for full photon delivery to the affected nerves.

Does Red Light Therapy Work for Wrinkles? Study Achieves 31.6% Reduction

The scientifically proven benefits of red light therapy for wrinkle reduction include SPF-15 sunscreen level of UV protection, collagen production without wounds (as compared to microdermabrasion and chemical peels), tighter skin from new collagen, reduced sagging from new elastin, reduced blood vessel overgrowth, reduced inflammation, reduced redness, and increased blood flow to nourish tissue health.

Red Light Therapy for Muscle Recovery: No More DOMS

Red Light Therapy for Muscle Recovery: No More DOMS

Using red light therapy for muscle pain reduces delayed onset muscle soreness by increasing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), increasing short burst reactive oxygen species (ROS), decreasing oxidizing ROS, and signaling the cell to reduce inflammation. Studies show that an effective dose of red light therapy reduces the inflammatory cytokines and the DOMS-based creatine kinase, effectively reducing the muscle pain.
