Red light therapy is a treatment that uses a low-level laser, also called a cold laser, to enhance your skin. Many people turn to red light therapy to get youthful skin by minimizing common signs of aging.
There are a few ways red light therapy rejuvenates your skin. During the treatment, the red light stimulates the mitochondria within your cells. Mitochondria provide energy to your cells to keep them functional. When mitochondria in skin cells produce more energy, new cell growth, and repair increases.
Red light therapy also stimulates the production of collagen, a fibrous structural protein in your skin that keeps it firm. Additionally, the treatment lowers inflammation.

Certain products can affect how red light penetrates your skin or how it affects the cells. Specifically, sunscreens and other products with a sun protection factor (SPF) can block some of the red light. You should also avoid putting retinol products on your skin before a red light therapy treatment, as they can interact and cause irritation.
Restoria also advises you to treat your skin gently before red light therapy. Avoid exfoliants, sunburns, and anything else that causes skin irritation.
