How Red Light Therapy Works - SGROW


What is Red Light Wellness Therapy?

When you expose your entire body to red and near-infrared light, a part of your cells called the mitochondria, or the “powerhouse” of your cells, soak it up and make more energy, also known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). By increasing the function of the mitochondria using Red Light Wellness, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.

Red and near-infrared light occupy the “long end” of the visible spectrum with wavelengths of 630nm-940nm. Red and near-infrared light is effective for use on the skin’s surface and penetrates up to two inches into the body affecting the cells, tissues, blood, nerves, the brain, and bone.

Use The Power Of Red/Infrared Light


Blue Light therapy is one area of light therapy that is quickly gaining recognition for some of its amazing benefits especially when used in conjunction with red and NIR light therapy.



Blue light used with a photosensitizing agent has been found effective in treating actinic keratoses or precancerous lesions caused by sun damage. Treating an individual actinic keratosis lesion can prevent skin cancer. This effective treatment only targets diseased cells with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.



Blue light treatment has come to the forefront in skincare as an effective treatment of mild to moderate acne. Propionibacterium acnes, the acne-causing bacteria, emits a photosensitizer which makes the bacteria exceptionally sensitive to light and vulnerable to damage by specific wavelengths.



Good circulation is vital for skin health and skin wound healing. Blue light stimulates the release of nitric oxide (NO), a vasodilator which increases circulation to deliver oxygen, immune cells, and nutrients to the treatment area. Along with the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of blue light, this effect can result in faster wound healing and better skin health.


The 630nm wavelength is ideal for targeting all manner of skin concerns.



In one study, the 630nm wavelength was combined with other beauty treatments such as microneedling to create a statistically significant improvement in photodamage, fine lines and sagging.



Red light therapy containing the 630nm wavelength has been proven to be a safe and effective method of stimulating hair growth in both men and women



The 630nm wavelength has also been shown to help reduce inflammation and breakouts.


Penetrating just a little deeper than the 630nm wavelength, the 660nm reaches into the entire range of the skin tissue to promote healing and regeneration.


Reduced training fatigue:

The 660nm wavelength teamed with the 830nm near-infrared wavelength has been proven to delay the development of fatigue in the muscles, and enhance skeletal muscle performance. (Athletes, take note.)+


Reduced inflammation:

In a study investigating the effects of red light therapy on pleurisy, the 660nm wavelength was found to induce an anti-inflammatory effect.


Improved bone healing:

The 660nm wavelength encourages resorption and formation in the bone cells around the location where repair is needed, without causing any change to the bone structure.


Reduced swelling following injury:

In one study, the 660 nm wavelength was found to reduce both inflammation and swelling by reducing the number of inflammatory cells which lead to the formation of swelling.


Reduced neuropathic pain:

A study investigating sciatic nerve pain in rats found that the 660 nm wavelength significantly helped to reduce pain.


Accelerated wound healing:

The 660 nm wavelength has been proven to increase the formation of new blood vessels and enhance collagen deposition to help in the healing of wounds.


With an ability to extend through the skull into the brain, the 810nm wavelength offers a unique array of neurological benefits. Many forward-thinking scientists are of the belief that light therapy for brain disorders will become a prominent medical treatment in the near future. Expect to reap the following benefits from the 810nm wavelength:


Improved healing and recovery:

A study of soccer players showed that the 810nm wavelength applied before activity enhanced muscular performance and post-exercise recovery.

Accelerated wound healing:

810nm wavelengths have been shown to help expedite wound healing, helping the tissue to granulate more rapidly.

Improved recovery from stroke in certain patients:

One study conducted among stroke patients showed that wavelengths of 810nm provided neuroprotective benefits and improved recovery among sufferers of moderate to severe strokes. Five days after the stroke, there was significant improvement among those who had been treated with the 810nm light therapy, compared to those who hadn’t. Ninety days post-stroke, 70% of the treated patients had a successful outcome, compared with only 51% of the control group.

Improved recovery from traumatic brain injury:

810nm has been proven in animal models to be particularly effective in fostering recovery from traumatic brain injuries, and reducing long-term neurological damage.

Improvement in psychiatric disorders:

Prescription drugs for psychiatric conditions have long been recognized as having a limited ability to assist individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions. What’s more, pharmacotherapeutic medication often carries a host of unwanted side effects, while near-infrared light therapy doesn’t. 810nm wavelengths applied to the forehead have been shown to assist patients suffering from major depression and anxiety.

Hair growth:

Studies have shown the 810nm wavelength can encourage significant hair growth in patients with androgenetic alopecia.


The 830nm wavelength is not as readily absorbed by the body, therefore it is able to penetrate deeper through skin and tissue and into the bone. A greater quantity of photons are delivered into the tissue with the 830nm wavelength. The incorporation of the 830nm wavelength into the BIOMAX delivers the following advantages:

Accelerated healing and reduced infection:

Like the 810nm wavelength, 830nm accelerates healing in wounds of different severity and helps to ward off infection.

Improved aesthetic outcomes following plastic surgery:

Swift exposure to 830nm wavelengths after aesthetic surgery hastens recovery, reduces downtime and enhances the results of surgery by reducing swelling, infection, bruising and pain, therefore leading to greater patient satisfaction.

Increased “feel-good” endorphins:

830nm wavelengths increases the release of endorphins. Endorphins are peptides which promote feelings of wellness.

Improved bone repair and growth:

An animal study demonstrated that 830nm light therapy improved bone repair by stimulating new bone growth.

Improvement in psychiatric disorders:

Prescription drugs for psychiatric conditions have long been recognized as having a limited ability to assist individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions. What’s more, pharmacotherapeutic medication often carries a host of unwanted side effects, while near-infrared light therapy doesn’t. 810nm wavelengths applied to the forehead have been shown to assist patients suffering from major depression and anxiety.


Faster return-to-play after injury:

The ability to return-to-play as swiftly as possible after injury or trauma is a key concern for any amateur or professional athlete. 830nm LED light therapy has been proven to significantly and safely reduce the wait time before injured athletes can return to play.


The 850nm wavelength is the signature PlatinumLED near infra-red wavelength and constitutes 80% of the BIOMAX spectral range. In many cases, the 850nm amplifies the benefits provided by the 810nm and 830nm wavelengths. This wavelength has a range of therapeutic applications such as:

Anti-inflammatory benefits:

850nm wavelengths can help to reduce joint and muscle pain and diminish general inflammation in the body.

Enhanced muscle recovery:

A study observed the use of 850nm wavelengths on athletes, and found that usage of the near-infrared light increased muscle mass after training, and decreased inflammation and oxidative stress in muscle biopsies.

Healing of wounds in the skin:

Lesions in the skin heal faster when exposed to 850nm wavelength light therapy.

Reduction of lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation:

850nm can support the production of collagen, assisting with plumper, more radiant-looking skin, and a more uniform texture.

Orthodontics and tooth alignment:

The use of the 850nm wavelength can foster the speedy realignment of teeth for patients undergoing orthodontics.
