Red-Light Therapy 
Red-Light Therapy penetrates to the bottom of the skin's dermis layer and into the subcutaneous fatty layer, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin proteins. ​ It increases the skin's metabolism of healthy oxygen and nutritional molecules. This gentle, yet extremely effective treatment is very beneficial as an anti-aging and skin rejuvenation tool and aids in fading sunspots and hyper pigmentation by stimulating the skin cells vitality and permeability. Red-Light Therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical face lift alternative, helping the skin maintain elasticity and firmness, while ​refining texture and smoothing lines and wrin​kles. ​

Additional Information About Red-Light Therapy That May Be Of Interest: 
Can I tan and use Red-Light Therapy the same day?  Yes. It is recommended that Red-Light be used before tanning, since the Red-Light Therapy brings blood to the surface of your skin and produces a better tan through increased oxidation of melanin. It is also recommend to use Red Light Therapy before your Mystic UV-Free Spray tan session to help with the absorption of the sunless solution.

Prescription Drugs: If you are using prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for
possible changes in the drug's effect due to an interaction with infrared energy.

Certain Ailments: According to some authorities, it is considered inadvisable to raise the core
temperature of someone with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis.

Joint Problems: If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours
or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond
poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed
infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.

Pregnancy: In pregnancy or the suspicion of pregnancy, discontinuation of use is recommended.

Surgical Implants: Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect
infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Nevertheless, a person should consult his or
her surgeon before receiving such therapy. Certainly infrared therapy must be discontinued if a person
experiences pain near any implants.

Silicone: Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear
replacement may be warmed by infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees Celsius, it should
not be adversely affected by an infrared heat system, however. It is still advised that a person checks with
his or her surgeon, and possibly a representative of the product manufacturer, to be certain.

Menstruation: Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily
increase menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this is occurring, she can choose to allow herself to
experience this short-term effect without worry. 

Haemorrhage: Haemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to haemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or
any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation that can lead to the tendency to bleed.
Worsened Condition: Should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system, the use of
the system should be discontinued.

Pain: Pain should not be experienced when using an infrared heat system. If one does, the use of radiant
heat is clearly inappropriate for the person at that time.
