What Is Collagen?

Collagen is a triple-helix-shaped protein that gives strength and vitality to the skin. Collagen, particularly type I collagen, which constitutes approximately 90% of the skin's total collagen content, plays a crucial role in supporting the skin. It is instrumental in preserving the skin's firmness and elasticity. The more collagen in your skin, the stronger and younger it will look. However, in the case of aging, the rate at which cells make collagen also slows down. Therefore, our bodies and skin are prone to collagen loss and deficiency as we age. Collagen deficiency leads to wrinkles and saggy skin.

Red Light Therapy Boosts Collagen Production

Way to Boost Collagen

I am appalled by the false information found on the internet. Collagen is produced in the body, so there is no need to take collagen supplements or drink collagen powder. Don't waste money on expensive skincare products or buy collagen drinks or supplements. These supplements are more likely to be broken down by stomach acid before they can reach the skin or be absorbed by the body. The good news is that there is a scientifically proven way to increase collagen levels in your skin. Red light therapy is the most direct and effective way to stimulate collagen regeneration!

Collagen Boosting Power of Red Light Therapy

We all know that light is life itself and greatly benefits the human body. As early as thousands of years ago, Hippocrates, the father of ancient Greek medicine, used sunlight for disease prevention and treatment. As people's understanding of light deepened, red light therapy also emerged.

"Red light therapy is a phototherapy method of using artificial visible red and near-infrared with a wavelength of 660–850 nm to promote the body's biological functions."

These potent wavelengths of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by cells to stimulate a cascade of biological responses that can benefit health and wellness. Red light therapy has emerged as a cornerstone of modern cosmetology. It originated in the 1980s when NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) used red light technology to care for astronauts' skin damage and restore skin and bone health. A NASA research highlighted that red light of specific wavelengths can be converted into cellular energy and absorbed by mitochondria in human tissue to accelerate enzymatic reactions and cell metabolism. Today, red light therapy is considered a groundbreaking approach in skincare due to its non-invasive collagen-enhancing properties. According to extensive research studies, red light therapy has miraculous effects on the skin:

Red Light Therapy

Promotes Circulation and Collagen Production

If you're interested in skincare, you've probably heard of collagen production. But did you know that red light therapy can actually stimulate this process? It's not just a theory; studies have shown that skin texture improves after regular use of red light therapy masks. The "red light" emitted by the LEDs has therapeutic properties that promote blood circulation while stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production, thereby addressing skin concerns such as wrinkles and fine lines.

Skin Rejuvenation

The benefits of red light therapy extend beyond collagen production; it's also effective in treating rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema by reducing inflammation. After treating these common cosmetic concerns with red light therapy, the skin rejuvenates faster than with topical and oral treatments. In addition, the biochemical effects of red light therapy on the cells trigger immune defenses against acne-forming bacteria. The treatment stimulates optimal collagen production by targeting enzymes associated with collagen breakdown to combat fine lines and wrinkles. When used at the right dose, RLT significantly improves the skin.

This is further supported by a study published by the National Library of Medicine, a controlled trial that determined the efficacy of red and near-infrared light therapy. It showed that red light therapy is a safe, non-ablative photobiomodulation-based treatment for skin tissue and could be a part of anti-aging therapies for patients seeking safe skin rejuvenation.

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

Additional Benefits

The effect of red light on beauty, anti-aging, and health is extremely obvious.
  • It tightens pores and makes the skin smooth and youthful.
  • It has the effects of detoxification and beauty and can improve the skin texture of occlusive blackheads and clear pimples.
  • It can make the mood happy and restore physical strength simultaneously by relieving pain due to diseases like arthritis and maintaining bone collagen production.

How to Apply RLT on the Skin

Before using an RLT, make sure your skin is well-prepared to enhance the effects of light therapy.
  • Deep Cleansing: Use a gentle yet deep cleanser to ensure your skin's surface is free of traces of makeup, oil, etc.
  • Exfoliation: Regular, gentle skin exfoliation helps RLT light penetrate the skin better.
  • Use the Right Skin Care Products: Choose skincare products suitable for RLT therapy and avoid products that can irritate.
  • Usage Duration: Set the frequency and timing of your RLT wisely to ensure the best results without overdoing it. Determine the appropriate frequency of use according to individual skin types and needs. It is generally recommended to use it for 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a week.


Today, there are plenty of anti-aging products available on the market. Staying safe from the fake promises offered by internal collagen-boosting methods such as injection filling, facial scraping, powders, and many more is imperative. If you want to fight aging, you must understand the root cause and improve it from the source. RLT's innovative treatment offers LED light therapy devices at home or red laser therapy machines specifically designed to emit wavelengths that stimulate collagen synthesis. It's making waves in the beauty industry as a method to enhance skin elasticity and firmness without invasive procedures. Try Bestqool red light therapy today to take better care of your skin.
