Red Light Therapy Affordability
1. Light is light. Red light therapy can be accomplished with any light source including incandescent, fluorescent, LED and (cold, soft, low-intensity) Laser. There are benefits and drawbacks of each, but ineffectiveness is not one of them. For certain applications, especially on specific surface areas of the skin, a $50 red reverse filter incandescent floodlight will do the same thing as a $350 red LED panel array. At the Solar Noon Salon we offer a number of options and devices for Red Light Therapy.
2. Red is Red. With the exception of lens colored disco light. The whole range of red light, from about 620 nm – 680 nm does essentially the same thing. Don’t get roped into spending more for one red light that might be 30 nm different than the one you can afford just because they say their “specific wavelength” is better. Super luminous LED’s (the ones we sell) provide significantly more photons then the old LED devices that you may see on ebay or Amazon. The treatment time required to get results, using the cheap devices, is generally much longer.
3. Intensity is relevant but it does not necessarily equal effectiveness. Be careful buying a very expensive red light therapy device based on claims of intensity. They all work when used as directed. That said there are nevertheless certain ranges of effectiveness based on wave frequency, the number of diodes, and other variables that light engineers consider. I think you will discover that our devices are simply the highest quality, most effective, and best value found anywhere.
4. With today’s super luminous devices, the treatment time for most targeted red light therapy applications is between 1 and 3 minutes per specific area. Research has shown longer treatment times are not necessarily better. Remember, treatment time is based on proximity of the light emitting device and the amount of lumins to the tissue being treated. Sometimes it’s better to do treatments twice or three times per week instead of daily. Resist the urge to over do it, and be patient as your results are revealed. Considering bulb life time (50,000 hours !!) and the durability of our LED devices, we are confident our bulbs stand head and shoulders above everything else on the market. There is some junk out there so be careful what you buy!! Our bulbs will provide a lifetime of value AND effectiveness. With a life of 50,000 hours that is equivalent to running a bulb 8 hours a day, for 17 years !! You will see that our bulbs and their housings are quality, and built to last.
