The Bioscience of Red Light,
Your Cells, and Rosacea
It shouldn’t be a surprise that our bodies are affected by light, or that light can have a beneficial effect on our bodily systems. Granted, plants are much better than people at utilizing light energy through photosynthesis. But consider this: for much of human history, the primary source of Vitamin D—an absolutely essential nutrient—was exposure to sunlight (not fortified milk).
How does this work?
The light photons in sunlight act in a specific way on the cells in our bodies, stimulating them to produce Vitamin D, which we then use to support our immune systems and bones. Kind of impressive when you think about it.
The light energy emitted by your Soothing Rain™ Light Unit also acts in a specific way to stimulate a beneficial cellular response.
However, the sun produces very broad spectrum light—it contains a lot of infrared (invisible) heat energy and also the damaging UV rays that cause skin burns. These are two things those of us with sensitive rosacea skin are keen to avoid.
So when the Soothing Rain™ Light Unit was designed, the specific wavelength of light was carefully chosen to maximize the biostimulatory effect—its positive action on cellular function—while having zero UV and heat-producing light. It’s totally gentle while being maximally effective.
But don’t take our word for it!
Below are several peer-reviewed clinical studies documenting the benefits of low-level red light therapy for treating disease and promoting healthier, younger-looking skin.
