Red Light Panels
Find answers to frequently asked questions about our Red Light Panels.
I assume you have measured the irradiance at different distances, can you provide the measurements and distances?
Irradiance has been measured which is listed in our product page here: https://mitohq.com/product/red-light-panel/
Will Red Light Therapy Hurt?
Red light treatments never hurt. Unlike lasers or microdermabrasion, which makes use of abrasion to change the skin’s appearance, these treatments only use light. Unlike These ablative treatments will often use heat and cause small levels of discomfort or pain. However, red light therapy treatments are non-thermal and non-invasive overall. Clients do not report discomfort during red light therapy treatments. The skin may feel warm due to the intensity of the red light treatment over an extended
How did you lower the flicker rate?
Flicker rate has been measured and is very low (there is a post in this in our FB group called “Mitochondriacs” which goes through this in detail and compares to another brand.
Should I wear Clothes When Doing Red Light Therapy?
The skin that you wish to be treated should be fully exposed to the light, and ideally as much skin as possible should be exposed to the light for maximum mitochondrial repair.
How Does Red Light Therapy Differ from Sunbathing?
"Sunbathing typically involves being exposed to UV during the hours of 9am to 5pm (Depending on your location and time of year). UV light produces Vitamin D and provides a tanning effect. Red light however does not have UVA or UVA and is naturally occuring in sunlight at dawn and dusk. There is no risk of sunburn for an by undergoing red light therapy, as our red light devices do not contain the full spectrum of the sun, which can cause damage to the skin upon prolonged or intense exposure.
How Long Will Treatment Take to See a Desired Result?
"Red light therapy will not produce immediate changes to skin, as the treatments are done in a series to effect noticeable and long-lasting effects. This is done over a period of a few weeks. Everyone reacts differently, as not all skin is the same. In general, the best results will be seen in an 8 to 12 week period, or over a period of several months."
Is Red Light Therapy Safe?
Red light therapy is completely safe for an average healthy individual. According to the FDA, red light used at 633 nm poses a non-significant risk and is also safe for the eyes at that level. Red light goes into the tissue at a depth of 8-10 mm, ensuring that the level of delivery is not only safe but also effective. The results are long-lasting.
What Happens to Our Body During Red light Therapy Treatment?
When red light at 650nm is absorbed at a cellular level by our mitochondria a simulation of intracellular energy transfer occurs. The production of this energy means cell vitality and permeability is increased overall. Production of new collagen, and increased turnover of collagen and elastin occurs during this process, ensuring that the fibers within skin are firm. Scientific studies have also shown that cells grow 150-200% faster upon exposure to certain light wavelengths.
