FAQ

Got questions? so do a lot of people when they first discover the awesome power of red light therapy. We've gathered the most common questions people have about red light therapy and wanted to put them here.

What is low level light therapy?

Low-level-light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Patients or clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.

2

Are there any harmful side effects to low-level light therapy?

LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended.

3

Does Light therapy hurt?

No. Light therapy is non-invasive and is painless when used as intended.

4

How safe is light therapy?

Low-level-light therapy is based on light emitting diode (LED) technology developed for NASA-manned space flight experiments. In comparison to lasers, the patented LED technology generates negligible amounts of heat and is not considered a significant risk device.

5

Does light therapy utilize UV light?

No. ReGen pods utilize a combination of red, and near-infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light emitting diodes (LEDs) only.

6

How long does a pod session last?

15 to 20 minutes

7

Are there any special preparations required before using the pods?

Skin should be free of clothing or anything else that may deflect light away from the skin. Be well hydrated and have a small amount of food in your stomach.

6

Who can use ReGen whole body pods?

It is a safe method of wellness for all ages. We have the ability to adjust power setting to meet any need. We always recommend consulting with your medical professional before using any form of treatment. 

6

Are there any contraindications?

The science based identified contraindication is for someone on immunosuppressants as the lights create immunity.
