What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy (RLT) is the safe application of red and near-infrared light that have the ability to penetrate through the skin and aid in the production of cellular energy.

This process is also sometimes referred to as photobiomodulation, biostimulation, LED light therapy or low-level laser therapy (LLLT). 

Unlike sunlight, which contains UV rays that can cause skin damage, red light does not damage or burn our skin. In fact, research so far shows it may benefit our skin.  

RLT is increasingly adopted by doctors, dentists, dermatologists, and treatments may be applied at your doctor’s office, hospital, at-home, physical therapy centers and even dental offices! 

How Does RLT Work?

In essence, RLT helps our body work better.How does it do that?

By activating our mitochondria. Mitochondria is often referred to as the “Power Generators” of our cells. Think of them as the batteries that provide the energy for our cells to function. When our mitochondria don’t work, our cells cannot function.  Many things from our everyday lives can jam up our mitochondria, from inflammatory food to stress, and toxins like mold and pesticides.

Thankfully, it turns out our mitochondria has an affinity for light and has receivers which can absorb light, particularly in the red wavelength range. Multiple independent studies have shown that, when our mitochondria absorb red light, it is activated to trigger cascades of cellular processes that may then aid with:

RLT & Safety

Unlike laser, which MAY damage the skin and needs to be operated by a trained professional, LED based light therapy is generally thought to be safe. 

This is because LED based RLT like LUMEBOX® does not emit any UV rays, which is the damaging part of the light spectrum. It also works without heating the skin, so there are no risks of burns when used as directed.

In fact, one of the main reasons red light therapy is rising in popularity among medical experts and consumers alike is its impeccable safety profile. That said, we still encourage you to consult with your healthcare provider in case you need to be careful or have a contraindication. 

Not all red light therapy units are created equal, that’s why it’s important to make sure you choose a brand that conforms to safety standards.

The Eyes

Please avoid looking directly at the light and do not use the device during the healing period post LASIK eye surgery. At LUMEBOX®, we provide with every purchase and encourage the use of protective eyewear while administering red light therapy.


If you’ve been diagnosed with carcinoma or are in treatment for carcinoma or any cancer related illness, it is important to consult with your doctor prior to treating the site with any RLT or LLLT device.


Do not use the device if pregnant or lactating. Users should consult their physician with any questions.


While RLT and LLLT devices emit low frequency red and infrared light waves, any exposure to LED pulsed light may trigger seizures in photosensitive epileptic patients. Be sure to consult with your healthcare provider before use. 


It is important to consult with your physician if you have a history of photosensitivity reactions triggered by light prior to use of any RLT or LLLT device. Patients using photosensitivity medications such as lithium, melatonin, phenothiazine antipsychotics and certain antibiotics should also discuss RLT therapy with their medical professional prior to use.
