Red Light Therapy for Anti-Aging, Skin Rejuvenation, Collagen Production and Overall Skin Health

Posted February 17, 2020

Men and women of all ages are always looking for ways to "age gracefully" or even turn back the hands of time.

A growing body of scientific evidence is demonstrating how red light therapy can aid in rejuvenating skin, anti-aging and overall skin health.

Red light therapy is one of the safest and most effective natural skin treatments available. Red light therapy is increasingly being used by dermatologists [1], spas, salons and beauty experts all over the world.

But now you no longer have to pay to have red light therapy sessions in a spa, salon or office. With Mito Red Light Therapy devices, you can enjoy daily red light therapy sessions in the comfort of your own home at a fraction of the cost.

A recent meta-review of randomized control trials stated [2]:

"LEDs represent an emerging modality to alter skin biology and change the paradigm of managing skin conditions."

The researchers cited acne vulgaris [3,4], herpes simplex and zoster, and acute wound healing as the most promising (based on the research so far). But red light therapy has been shown to have numerous skin-specific benefits:

Red Light Therapy has been shown to increase natural production of collagen [5,6], have an anti-aging effect on human skin cells [7] and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. [8]

Red Light Therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation. This may be (in part) why it is helpful for inflammatory skin issues such as acne. [9]

Red Light Therapy has been shown to improve wound healing and the healing of scars. [10,11]

So far we have received numerous pieces of encouraging customer feedback citing improved skin after use of Mito Red Light devices. One example is this review from Kim:

"I’ve been battling a skin issue (3 years) triggered by a bad reaction to medicine. The only regret I have is not purchasing sooner because in just 10 days my skin issue is obviously healing & healthier. I would recommend this product without hesitation."

Another example is this review from Chelsea A.

Fabulous! Real results.

Mito Red has been incorporated into my mediation in the morning. I see results in my energy, skin texture, and complexion."

Red light therapy is a cost effective and easy to implement strategy to help maintain excellent skin health. For the cost of a MitoMIN a MitoMOD 300 or a MitoPRO 300 you can implement a proven skin rejuvenation strategy for the cost of 1-2 months supply of many lotions / creams that are on the market. Red light therapy really is a no-brainer!
