Using technology developed by NASA and supported by over 40 years of independent, scientific research it has now been concluded that there are many benefits gained from exposing your body to intense red light therapy. Because of its amazing benefits, traditional tanning salons have begun using red light therapy beds as a sort of “reverse tanning bed.” This type of light therapy has become a breakthrough treatment because unlike cosmetic surgery, red light therapy is non invasive, cost-effective, and risk-free alternative to improving skin’s appearance.

Red Light Therapy FAQ
Q. Do I need to make an appointment to use the red light bed?
A. No, we do not take appointments for the red light bed. This is a walk-in only service. We also cannot "reserve" the red light bed because that isn't fair to other customers who would like to come in and use it. You may call in advance and see if there is a wait if you would like.
Q. What is red light therapy and how does it work?
A. Red light can penetrate tissue because it's not blocked by blood or water as much as other wavelengths. The body’s tissue can absorb this type of light at a cellular level, converting it to cellular energy (known as ATP). Many studies have shown that this energy accelerates activity in the mitochondria (the part of the cell that generates protein, collagen, and healing materials) as well as improving blood flow in the area being treated, speeding healing and minimizing pain. The brain receives signals to release endorphins (natural pain killers) and serotonin into the body.
Q. Can I use Red Light Therapy with a spray tan?
A. Yes! We actually recommend using Red Light Therapy before your Sunless Spray session to help with the absorption of the sunless solution.
Q. How long is the Red Light Therapy bed?
A. Our bed has a maximum time of 15 minutes.
Q. Is Red Light Therapy safe?
A. There’s absolutely no pain or discomfort during treatment, no medical risk, and no recovery time. Why? Unlike many other treatments – like IPL (Intense Pulsed Light laser), microdermabrasion and chemical peels – there is no initial ‘controlled damage’ done to your skin. Red Light Therapy does not cut, burn, or break the skin as with laser treatments. Long recognized by European dermatologists, FDA-approved as safe. It’s one of the latest and most advanced anti-aging treatments to look younger and better without surgery.
Q. How often do I have to use red light therapy to see results?
A. Everyone reacts differently, depending on their age and the condition of their skin. There are a few immediate changes to the skin, such as cleaner, brighter and a tighter feeling.Recommended therapy schedules are 3-4 days per week, for 4-6 weeks. After the initial treatment schedule it is recommended to continue 1-2 days per week.
Q. How can I further the effects of red light therapy?
A. Use a vitamin C serum daily to help build collagen and eliminate age spots. Use a good sunscreen. Drink plenty of water daily. Get proper amounts of sleep. If you smoke: smoking robs your body of vitamin C that your skin needs to produce collagen, and robs your skin of oxygen. Keep your skin moisturized with a nutrient-rich moisturizer.
Q. Does the red light bed tan?
A. No. The red light therapy lamps do not transmit any UV light. This bed is actually reffered to as the "reverse tanning bed".
Q. How long will my results last after treatment?
A. Results depend on the length of treatment and the original conditions being treated. Skin rejuvenation is a dynamic process. If maintenance treatments are discontinued, a gradual loss of results will occur over time, as with normal skin aging.
Q. Is a waiver required and where can I review it?
A. Yes, a waiver is required. You can view it here.

How Red Light Therapy Works:
“Red Light Therapy is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to Red Light Wavelengths” — Tammy Thompson, Women's Journal
