Coming in June! Green light upgrade to Red Light & Near Infrared bed

Green light therapy, like all LED therapies, leverages the power of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to deliver specific wavelengths of light to your skin.

But why green light? Well, the magic lies in its unique wavelength.

Green light, typically around 520 nanometers, penetrates the skin to a shallow depth, targeting the skin’s surface layers. While it doesn’t go as deep as red or near-infrared light, it doesn’t need to! Green light works right where it’s most effective — in the skin’s outer layer, also known as the epidermis.

Unlike more high-energy light forms like UV rays, green light doesn’t harm the skin. Instead, it’s believed to influence the cells’ behaviors in the skin’s upper layers. When you’re dealing with complexion concerns around blemishes, scarring, or dark spots, this is exactly what you want.

Green light, with its calming properties, has been associated with wellness benefits beyond skin health, too.

Research has suggested that exposure to green light might help support overall mood, cognition, and migraine relief. These studies propose that green light could potentially help support relaxation — the calming effects could even extend to your bedtime routine, possibly supporting your sleep quality, too.

Wellness-focused clients may find that incorporating green light therapy into their wellness routines complements their health-oriented lifestyles and brings a new dimension to their self-care.
