- How to Use Red Light to Treat Eczema or Skin Diseases?
Skin diseases, as a major problem plaguing contemporary youth, have been mentioned repeatedly in recent years. There may be many causes of skin diseases, such as air pollution, eating habits, and staying up all night. These are some of the reasons for the increasing incidence of skin diseases.
According to relevant statistics, at least 300 million people around the world are troubled by skin diseases, and this number is increasing year by year. The symptoms of skin diseases are mostly dermatitis and eczema. The cause of the former is relatively obvious. The specific manifestations are skin redness, swelling, edema, papules, chickenpox, and other phenomena.
The cause of eczema is not obvious, and controlling it by using the method of treating dermatitis is often not very effective. Compared with dermatitis, the causes of eczema are more complex, and it is not an independent disease. Therefore, comprehensive treatment is the best way to deal with eczema.
Red Light Therapy happens to be one of the excellent solutions. Nowadays, many experts and professors from all over the world have led their own teams to research this treatment plan. In major medical journals, there have been special reports describing Red Light Therapy's solution to eczema. This article will also introduce the relevant knowledge of "The Healing Power of Red Light Therapy for Eczema" in detail to help you better choose satisfactory products.
What Is Eczema? What Impact Will It Have?
The clinical manifestations of eczema are mostly itching and erythema. It is a type of skin inflammation, so it is often confused with dermatitis. Eczema is also divided into acute eczema and chronic eczema. In the former, dense chestnut-shaped papules or small blisters will form on the skin, gradually connecting together. The patient will involuntarily scratch the area, and after scratching, small erosions will appear with irregular edges, which can easily lead to secondary infection.
When acute eczema lasts for too long and is not treated, it will gradually turn into chronic eczema; the skin in the affected area will thicken and look different from normal skin, ranging from brown to red or pigmentation, with a rough surface and covered with scales. There may be scabs formed due to scratching.
Eczema is more likely to occur in children and teenagers and can cause great trouble in people's lifestyles. On the one hand, itching recurs at any time, causing trouble in life. On the other hand, it's unsightly, and being covered in clothes still doesn't solve the main problem. To solve this problem, you can take red light therapy as a solution, which has gained wide acceptance.
How to Use Red Light to Treat Eczema or Skin Diseases?
In a previous blog, we mentioned the benefits of red light therapy for pain relief. The treatment of eczema with red light is mainly used to treat acne skin diseases such as pigmentation, acne, papules, pustules, nodules, cysts, and scars caused by various reasons such as sebaceous gland duct obstruction and pore obstruction. The red light class penetrates deep into the dermal layer of the skin, reduces local excessive tightness of the skin, and reduces local hardening of the skin. It can have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin by activating the NF-KB pathway, achieving the effect of relieving eczema.
At the same time, experimental studies have found that sphingosine kinase-1 may be a very promising therapeutic target in red light treatment of skin diseases. Red light treatment of skin diseases has no obvious side effects and has certain safety and effectiveness. It is promising and plays an important role in future clinical treatments.
The research team led by Okjoon Kim, an academician from the Department of Oral Pathology at Chonnam National University in South Korea, recently published a paper. The paper, titled 'Red light-emitting diode irradiation regulates oxidative stress and inflammation through SPHK1/NF-KB activation in human keratinocytes,' features their research results in the authoritative academic journal 'Photochemistry and Photobiology.'
The research conclusion shows that eczema is a form of inflammation in the skin, and red light has significant anti-inflammatory properties. Fibrocytes will continue to be produced under the stimulation of red light, increasing tissue repair and helping wound healing by stimulating oxidative phosphorylation. Red light activates the NF-KB pathway, removes reactive oxygen species, and plays an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory role in the skin.
The biggest advantage of red light therapy is that it affects the whole body at the same time, and eczema happens to be a type of reaction due to internal reasons. The causes of this condition are complex and could be due to a variety of reasons, including digestive system diseases, excessive fatigue, emotional changes, and metabolic disorders, among others. Therefore, using red light therapy as a comprehensive form of treatment often achieves different effects.
Although the manifestations of eczema are not much different from dermatitis, it is more of a reaction to the state of the whole body. When symptoms of eczema appear on the body, it may mean that certain conditions have already occurred in the body. Using appropriate red light therapy to regulate the whole body can better reflect the benefits of red light therapy.
