Red Light Therapy, Kirkland

Look, we all want our skin to be radiant and blemish-free. However, achieving this can lead you down a road of consumer overload. With thousands of products, treatments, and recommendations, you can find yourself more confused than when you started your research. The truth is, most of us aren’t sure what is accurate and what is simply good marketing. If you’ve heard of red light therapy, then I’m sure you’ve seen the at-home laser treatments or heard of its benefits. But what in the world is it, and is it even safe? 

At Northwest Face & Body, we’ll answer your questions and explain why red light therapy may be exactly what your skin needs. The truth is that red light therapy isn’t for everyone, but it is a wonderful solution for certain skin and regeneration needs.

What Is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy focuses on healing, regeneration, and growth in the cells. But how does it do this, and where did this come from? Red light therapy (we’ll refer to it as RLT because acronyms are fun) is exactly what it sounds like. By using lower levels of red and infrared light across your skin, the cells will begin to respond to the wavelengths of light. 

Now, you may be thinking this all sounds great, but what does it have to do with your complexion? Honestly, why put red lights on your face at all? These are all fair questions, and we are happy to answer them. 

Red Light Therapy Benefits

It’s often said, “Maybe it’s magic; maybe it’s red light therapy.” (Okay, no one says that.) Seriously, though, RLT can really help your skin and heal cosmetic and certain medical challenges. You don’t have to take our word for it. Instead, check out these (awesome) benefits reported by patients:

  • Boosts cell growth – It’s like you never suntanned with baby oil!
  • Boosts tissue regeneration – Head up, chin high, skin tight.
  • Calms inflammation -Bye, acne and acne scars!
  • Increases collagen and elastin – “Wow, you haven’t aged at all!”
  • Hair follicle regeneration – Yeah, it’s for more than your skin.

Red light therapy treatment reaches the deepest layer of skin to create true change and regeneration in the cells. It can fight acne, wrinkles, sun damage, and loss of skin elasticity.

Red Light Therapy Machine

At Northwest Face & Body, you can avoid the at-home Halloween masks that offer red light therapy. Instead, you can use our state-of-the-art red light therapy machine. It’s a quick and easy session that may leave you feeling like a new person. However, we’ve been keeping a secret. We know that’s the last thing you want to hear from a medical facility, but we really think you’ll like this one. 

See, our RLT machine doesn’t only do red light therapy treatments. Instead, it offers seven different light therapy treatments that can work for different needs and goals. Different light wavelengths reach different layers of the skin, meaning it can treat specific issues. (Because different layers of your skin hold different skin issues, okay?) 

The Different Light Treatments

If you think red light therapy sounds awesome, but you have different skin needs, there’s no need to worry. Our LED light therapy machine offers seven different lights that help you achieve that gorgeous glow. Or clear complexion. Or a lifted look. Really, we can help with whatever you’re going for. These light therapies include: 

Purple Light Therapy (400-420nm): Purple light therapy treats surface-level issues on the skin. It’s great if you are looking for a deep skin cleansing that reduces surface inflammation and stimulates blood flow for clear skin.


Blue Light Therapy (430-450nm): Blue light therapy reaches the middle layer of surface tissue. It’s perfect if you are struggling with clogged pores, acne, or overly oily skin.


Cyan Light Therapy (500-520nnm): Cyan light therapy works with the lowest level of the surface tissue. If you are looking to balance combination skin, decrease excessive acne, and achieve a smoother texture, cyan light may be right for you.


Yellow Light Therapy (400-700nm): Yellow light therapy reaches the middle layer of the soft tissue. It’s great for getting rid of toxins and increasing collagen production to fight wrinkles, heal wounds, and treat sun damage.


Orange Light Therapy (590-630nm): Orange light reaches the bottom layer of the soft tissue. Orange light can give you a glowy, dewy complexion and fight dull textures.


White Light Therapy (400-700nm): White light therapy hits deeper layers of tissue, but not quite as deep as the red light. However, it can be great if you are looking for tighter skin, decreased skin damage, or a solution to hyperpigmentation. It can also be an excellent mood booster if you need a little pick-me-up.


Red Light Therapy (630-700nm): Red light therapy reaches the deepest layer of the skin. You already know the benefits, but let’s review. It’s great for healing acne, fighting wrinkles, tightening the skin, reversing sun damage, and giving you a lovely glow.
