Red Light Therapy or LED Light therapy is the fastest-growing body treatment in the world. Experience the power of red light to treat chronic skin conditions and improve health while receiving luxurious service in our spa room.
Red light therapy has been used for decades for various therapeutic benefits. Red light therapy is also known as photomodulation (PBMT). It uses light in the red or near-infrared region. Red light has a wave length of 630 nm-700nm and we can see the color red.
It is most often used on the surface of the skin. Far Infrared has a wavelength of 700-800nm and it can not be seen but it can be felt in the way of warmth. They are similar because this wavelength range best penetrates through tissue and is more easily absorbed. They are both also safe and natural.
Red light stimulates Mitochondria to generate ATP which is the chemical energy of the cell; otherwise called the powerhouse of the cell. It also stimulates the production and density of collagen eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Illness or lifestyle choices can lower mitochondria ATP production which would result is sluggish cell functions. Red light therapy triggers a reaction that helps reduce this decline.
Red light therapy is a safe, effective treatment for skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Clinical studies have shown that it helps alleviate symptoms of inflammation, reduces itchiness and scaling, improves skin quality, and even helps reduce scarring. What’s more, red light can help alleviate other chronic health issues like seasonal allergies and muscle pain.
Red light therapy can also be used before work outs and/or after work outs to accelerate recovery from exercising.
Red Light Therapy Benefits
Also referred to as Far Infra-red light, or FIR, is a spa service that treats chronic skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Also called phototherapy or biotherapy, FAR infra-red produces heat through non-thermal light waves that are non-ionizing and have no known adverse effects on humans.
The benefits include improved circulation in the skin and muscles to improve oxygenation. This helps reduce inflammation and relieve pain – as well as increased healing time due to faster cell regeneration. No side effects or downtime associated with this treatment means you can enjoy the results immediately after each session.

With the use of Far Infra-red light, heating the body and raising the core temperature is a good way to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which can help fight off bacteria and viruses. It promotes your body’s natural defense system. That reaction is why your body produces a fever when you are ill.
The benefits of a far infrared sauna treatment is that it heats the core temperature more quickly by penetrating with in the body rather than heating the temperature of the room. When the rays penetrate, they break up fats and toxins that are trapped in water molecules allowing us to sweat it out to naturally detoxify the body. It increase circulation and blood flow, improves heart health, improves weight loss, boosts metabolism, relaxation and improved sleep.
The red light therapy treatment delivers visible light at a specific wavelength to activate collagen in the skin by increasing blood flow. This is the same process that occurs naturally when you are in sunlight, but in this case it happens on your own terms.
Light Therapy For Skin

I serve on and support several community charity committees as I believe it’s important to give back to the communities that have supported Complexions Spa for many years.. In my spare time I love spending time outdoors connecting with nature by kayaking and hiking in the Adirondacks, equestrian sports and thoroughbreds, skiing, golf, and traveling. I also love early mornings in the gym exercising, pilates, my dog, cooking, and sharing time with my husband, our children, grandchildren, good friends and family.
