Is Red Light Therapy at Home Effective?

Home red light therapy with LED is an incredibly effective option for skin rejuvenation. In a therapeutic setting, red light was initially investigated as a wound-healing therapy, because of its stimulating and soothing abilities. It was later discovered that its effects can also have cosmetic benefits!

With age, the skin produces less collagen, which is the main protein responsible for firmness. That’s why we develop fine lines and sagginess as we get older. Thankfully, red light is able to reduce wrinkles and firm the skin by helping to reverse that aspect of the aging process! Research shows that red light is able to penetrate through the skin and stimulate fibroblast activity, for an increased production of collagen.

Red light also has a powerful soothing effect that helps to heal and soothe the skin, making it a phenomenal option even for those with sensitive skin. Those soothing effects can also help fade blemishes and breakouts since acne in itself is an inflammatory condition.

Targeting Skin Concerns with Red Light Therapy at Home

If you’d like to add at-home red light therapy to your routine, here are some of the potential skin concerns you can expect it to target!

  • Premature aging: Red light therapy helps fade fine lines and increase overall skin firmness, for a significantly more youthful look.
  • Sensitive skin: Because red light treatments are gentle and non-invasive, they’re appropriate for sensitive skin. In fact, they can even help fade redness and even out the skin tone through a soothing and reparative effect.
  • Acne-prone skin: You can undergo red light treatments even if you have acne-prone skin, and their soothing effect can help visibly fade blemishes for clearer skin.

How To Do Red Light Therapy At Home: Expert tips 

Here’s how to use red light therapy at home, and ensure you achieve the best results!

  • Always start with clean skin. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser that’ll remove sebum and other debris from your skin, and make sure to rinse it away well.
  • Consider also exfoliating your skin to eliminate dead skin cells and help the light reach even deeper.
  • Next, apply a water-based, hydrating serum (hyaluronic acid serums are excellent).
  • Finally, use your LED light device. With a tool like the Evertone Infrawave wand, you can simply turn the device on, and glide it over your skin. Always massage upwards and outwards to give your skin more of a lift.
  • Don’t forget to use your red light device over other body parts where you have specific concerns, like your chest or neck.
  • Once you’re done, finish off your skincare routine with the rest of your products, and don’t forget to apply moisturizer.
  • If you’ve used your device in the daytime, make sure to also use sunscreen. 

Picking The right Red Light Therapy Device

If you’d like to introduce red light therapy into your daily care routine, all you need to do is pick up a device! Nowadays, there are many options available, including masks, glasses, and wands.

 At Evertone, we developed a 4-in-1 red light therapy Infrawave wand that rejuvenates the skin, with the addition of vibrational massage and microcurrent stimulation. This combination of effects gives the skin a serious boost. With a regular 5-minute session you can fade fine lines, reduce puffiness, firm your skin, and clear away blemishes! The best part? It’s an incredibly affordable option that costs about half the price of a red light facial at a salon!

FAQs about How To Use Red Light Therapy At Home

How often should you use red light therapy on your face?


For the best results, use your home red LED light device at least three to four times a week. You don’t need to worry about overdoing red light therapy, so if you have more time, you can even use it on a daily basis either in the morning or at night.

Are there any contraindications or precautions?


Home red light therapy devices are a very safe option for almost everyone. That said, if you have epilepsy, eye conditions that impact your sight, or you take medications that cause photosensitivity, you may want to speak to your doctor before undergoing red light therapy.

What are the potential side effects of red light therapy?

There are no serious side effects associated with the gentle red light therapy devices used at home. Stronger machines may lead to some skin irritation or cause eye strain, especially when it comes to masks, but wands are a particularly safe choice.

Can red light therapy be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

Pregnancy is generally not considered a contraindication for red light therapy. In fact, dim red light has been studied as a potential treatment for depressive symptoms during pregnancy. Even so, we highly recommend that you speak to your doctor before undergoing red light treatments if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
