Let's start breaking the stigma—why red light matters and what it can do

Improves Premature Aging: It can visibly reduce the severity of wrinkles and fine lines.  “In a trial on 136 volunteers, red light therapy was found to increase collagen density, thereby visibly reducing wrinkle severity and fading fine lines.”

Anti-Inflammatory: Red Light has the potential for treating conditions like rosacea and psoriasis as well as various types of irritation, wound healing and pain relief. 

Reducing Congestion & Breakouts: Red Light therapy can help breakouts fade more quickly and, over time, can lead to clearer-looking skin.

Hair Loss Improvement: Research has shown significant improvement in hair density after around 4 months of consistent treatments.


Is It Safe To Do A Red Light Often? 

Yes! Absolutely. The best results from using red light therapy usually occur with frequent use. While you don’t have to use it daily, the effects can be more beneficial when used more often.

Is Red Light Therapy Safe?

Yes. With virtually no adverse effects reported, there can be minor risk of headaches or eye-related sensitivities. We also recommend eye protection and seeking advice from your physician before doing treatments that you are unsure of.

Can Red Light Therapy Be Used With Other Services?

Yes! It can be done in conjunction with many different skin treatments, including skincare products that include renewing ingredients, as well as in conjunction with clinical or spa treatments.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Most studies found that red light therapy started showing results within weeks, with maximum benefits showing after several months of continued use. Of course, results depend on the person, their conditions and usage.

What Are The Side Effects?

Most don’t not see any side effects but some studies did show that in “very rare cases, red light therapy could lead to irritation or stinging”.

Is Red Light Therapy Safe For All Skin Types?

Yes! One of the best pros of red light treatments is that it works well for all skin types. Even those with sensitive skin, who normally can’t use other treatment devices, find that red light is effective for them.

What Are The Costs Associated With Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy at Bella Nuova Spa is surprisingly affordable and often, part of certain facials. It can also be added to additional services for a nominal charge.
