Red Light Therapy and Collagen Production

Collagen is a type of protein found in our bodies to help build healthy bones, skin, hair, tendons, and connective tissues. As we age, our ability to produce collagen slowly declines. Red light therapy is especially popular for the production of collagen as the nanometers needed for this process is in the 700nm range. Red light in this range also enhances cellular processes in the skin by regenerating fibroblasts, keratinocytes, and skin tissue.⠀

Wunsch & Matuschka (2014) conducted a study to see the changes in skin complexion and feeling with RLT in the 570-850nm range. Their study was conducted over 30 treatments in the span of 10 weeks. Results showed that RLT significantly improved “skin complexion, skin feeling, collagen intensity score, skin roughness, and wrinkle status”.⠀

Orion uses the most effective red light (660nm) to be readily absorbed by the skin for improved skin health and collagen production. We recommend daily 10-15 minute targeted-treatments at the face for the best results.⠀
