The Medlight and Red Light Therapy For Skin Care

We tell those seeking relief from muscle and joint pain that they should try the Medlight 630Pro because it is safe, effective, and affordable. Sometimes people tell us to start over and explain what “the Medlight” is in the first place. That is fair, we should probably define our terms before we start telling you all the great things this red light therapy device can do for you.

NASA-Developed Technology

With that in mind, let us explain to you what the Medlight actually is. The Medlight is a revolutionary new red light pain therapy device (also called an LED therapy device) that has been formulated by NASA-inspired technology which was developed over forty years ago. Interestingly enough, NASA was researching methods of plant growth, and Light Emitting Diode (LED) therapy was found to have the convenient secondary effect of also repairing skin cells and increasing circulation within humans in space, in addition to aiding plant growth.

This discovery was significant for multiple reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, the NASA discovery has had and continues to have a profound impact on how people can treat arthritis, skin issues, and even muscle soreness and pain. Secondly, the NASA-observed cell repair occurred in space, which is noteworthy because cell repair, growth, and natural healing occurs at a much slower rate in a zero gravity environment. Red light therapy has been proven to stimulate growth and healing in muscle, bone, and skin.

Therefore, the Medlight, utilizing infrared muscle therapy, is one of the most affordable methods to take advantage of these findings. So whether you are looking for a remedy for muscle cramps or an alternative way to treat joint pain and arthritis stiffness, the Medlight is certainly an options worth considering.

Earlier, we said that the Medlight is safe, effective, and affordable. Let’s dive into some specifics.

The Medlight Is Safe

As opposed to potentially harmful pharmaceutical drugs, the Medlight is guaranteed to be safe. The energy that interacts with your tissue is without side-effects, and won’t damage the tissue at all. Because the results are cumulative, we encourage our customers to use the Medlight as much as possible. It’s why we say you can imagine a life without pain.

The Medlight Is Effective

Pain and simple; the Medlight works. With 48 joules of pain relieving energy released during every four minute session, the Medlight can increase your range of motion by reducing inflammation and relaxing affected muscle tissue. The severity of your pain will determine how often you need to use the Medlight, which increases circulation to stop pain in its tracks.

The Medlight Is Affordable

When you compare bills for physical therapy or look at monthly receipts for those over-the-counter pain relievers, a one-time purchase of $199.99 seems more manageable. Being made in the USA, you can shop with the confidence that this is a high-quality product made with care.

Red Light Therapy For Skin Care

Let’s talk about skin care and rejuvenation specifically (it is what this post is titled, after all). One of the most popular and exciting uses of infrared light therapy (or LED, or red light therapy, or photofacial therapy; they all work) is that it is a non-invasive alternative skin treatment method which specifically targets unhealthy areas during the treatment. As opposed to other painful methods of facial treatment, photofacial treatments are gentle on the skin. That is exactly why it is quite possibly the fastest growing form of facial treatment in recent memory.

How It Works

The LED energy interacts with the cells to convert light energy into cell energy (a simplified but true explanation, we warrant) without any risk of adverse effects. A more complex explanation is as follows. Cell activity decreases as we age, and we see the results of that phenomenon as unhealthy or wrinkly skin. The Medlight counteracts this natural occurrence by using infrared light therapy and its wavelengths to increase cellular activity at the dermal level. Hence, those tired cells get a sort of boost from the LED technology. If you are familiar with photosynthesis, it can be helpful to think of the process of a plant converting sunlight into nutritious energy as a similar process.

Do They Work?

All that science might sound well and good, but you might be asking yourself if the Medlight or LED light facials really work. Dr. R. Glen Calderhead, a leading mind in photosurgery and phototherapy, agrees with us. In a recent study he posited that “Low-level light therapy (LLLT) with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is emerging from the mists of black magic as a solid medico-scientific modality, with a substantial buildup of corroborative bodies of evidence for its efficacy and elucidation of the modes of action. Reports are appearing from many different specialties; however, of particular interest to plastic surgeons treating the aging face is the proven action of LED-LLLT on skin cells in both the epidermis and dermis and enhanced blood flow. Thus, LED-LLLT is a safe and effective stand-alone therapy for patients who are prepared to wait until the final effect is perceived.”

Take it from the word of a highly regarded researcher and clinician. This kind of therapy really works, but not all at once. Like we mentioned above, the results are cumulative. So the more you do it, the more it works! One more takeaway from Dr. Calderhead’s quote is that the Medlight is a one-time purchase. Going to a specialist to get a weekly LED light facial might sound fun at first, but after a few months of getting a weekly bill of a few hundred dollars or so, you might realize you could have bought your entire extended family a Medlight or two for the same price as a year’s worth of LED facial treatments (light facials on average cost between $50-$300 per session). Do with that blurb of financial advice as you will.

Red Light Therapy Benefits

We’ve written about the general effects that the Medlight can have on your joints, muscles, and skin. We’ve outlined specific physiological phenomena occurring on the cellular level when it comes to skin rejuvenation as well. But what about the practical, tangible benefits of red light therapy for the skin?

Like we’ve noted before, an immediate and obvious advantage over other kinds of facials is that infrared light therapy is gentle, safe, and non-invasive. That’s a good starting point when you consider the possibly damaging short and long-term effects of treatments like chemical peels, botox injections, and laser resurfacing. And that is without even mentioning plastic surgery.

The skin-related benefits to red light therapy include the following:

  • Acne redness control and reduction of effects caused by Rosacea and Eczema
  • Accelerated bruise healing (increase of circulation)
  • Scar appearance reduction
  • Uneven skin tone is addressed
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Helps dry skin
  • Helps hair loss
  • Improves the firmness of your skin
  • Positively alters sun-damaged skin
  • Promotes a radiant, smooth, and even complexion

There are many more benefits that the Medlight has to offer. Among those reported are protection from harmful free radicals, promotion of digestive health, activating the immune system, and even stimulating the DNA/RNA process of synthesis. Those topics are beyond the reach of today’s post, but are certainly worth looking into on your own time. Who knows, those sound like good ideas for future posts, too.

Although each person’s body can react in their own way to both pain and healing methods, it’s easy to see why more and more people are giving LED technology and the Medlight a chance.

When you compare it to your alternatives and read the science behind the promises, you can begin to imagine a pain-free life. If you are ready to experience real relief from arthritis stiffness, joint soreness, muscle spasms, and unhealthy skin, give the Medlight a try.
