What is red light therapy? Skin experts explain all


“What is red light therapy?” is a frequently asked question for beauty editors and dermatologists alike. An emerging beauty treatment, LED light therapy (including red) has been touted as a skincare savior that can help tackle many major concerns from hyperpigmentation and acne to fine lines and dullness. 

And, thanks to new home-use devices, red light therapy is more easily available in our skincare routine than ever before. “LED light therapy has been used for over 30 years to help accelerate wound healing as well as to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin,” says Dr Maryam Zamani, founder of MZ Skin. It was first developed by NASA to help astronauts with tissue healing and repair in space, “and has evolved to also help skin cells absorb topical skincare products more effectively,” explains Dr Zamani.
