Collagen FAQ


What is a collagen bed?

The Collagen Bed is a full body red light therapy. They naturally stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin in the body and increases circulation by the formulation of new capillaries which speed up the healing process in damaged skin.

What are the benefits of red light therapy?

Red light therapy (sometimes called LLLT or low level laser therapy) involves emitting red, low-light wavelengths through the skin to stimulate cellular rejuvenation, increase blood flow, stimulate collagen and more.

The combination of lamps with red light and UV lamps in RED LIGHT THERAPY TANNING BEDS, will give you the best of both worlds – red-light for collagen repair plus ultraviolet light for vitamin D and other benefits of UV-exposure.

What is Red Light Collagen Therapy?

Originally developed by NASA to improve wound healing and tissue growth in space- as well as helping tired, fatigued astronauts on their return to earth- Red Light Therapy is photo bio stimulation by exposure to lights in the red and infrared wavelength.

How does it work?

At a wavelength of 633nm (nanometers) red light penetrates the skin 8-10mm. This penetration triggers the body to make collagen and elastin, and to generate new capillaries. The result of more collagen and elastin is firmer, tighter-looking skin, and the result of new capillaries is more circulation, which increases wound-healing and scar tissue reducing benefits. Red Light Therapy is fast becoming the safest, fastest, most painless AND most affordable way to achieve a vibrant, younger-looking skin.

Who is it suitable for?

For anti-aging benefits and deep skin rejuvenation, red light exposure therapy is suitable for everyone. It is particularly beneficial for people over the age of 25. At this age, the body gradually loses the ability to make youthful collagen, hence our appearance starts to age.

How long will it take to see results?

Results vary depending on your skin type, and depending on your age, however the following is a guideline for the frequency of exposure and corresponding expected results:

Age Frequency Best Results At Maintenance
25 – 35 2-3 times per week 3-6 weeks 1 per 10 days-2 weeks
35 – 45 2-3 times per week 4-8 weeks 1 per 1-2 weeks
45 – 55 2-3 times per week 6-10 weeks 1 per week
55 + 2-3 times per week 8 weeks + 1-2 times per week

Benefits of Red Light Rejuvenation Collagen Therapy :

Tests on red light exposure have clearly shown at least 24 positive changes at a cellular level. Red Light Therapy is extremely effective for:

  • Anti-aging: stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the dermis gives a visible smoothing effect on wrinkles, plumps the skin and improves skin elasticity, suppleness and firmness
  • Broken capillaries
  • Age Spots
  • Cuts
  • Wounds
  • Scars
  • Joints
  • Bones
  • Deep muscles
  • Acne (reducing inflammation)
