Red Light Therapy for Psoriasis
It is defined as a chronic skin condition that leads to rapid turnover of the skin cells. Normally, people with psoriasis have silvery scales called plaques, which can cause painful irritation, and are located on various parts of their bodies.
There are a ton of treatments available, many involving steroid creams and medication. However, Red Light Therapy is emerging as a simple yet highly effective one. The beauty of this form of treatment is it does not just reduce symptoms, it helps you become blemish free naturally.
The proven efficacy of Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy penetrates deep into the skin and cells, which then aids in the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), boosting cellular energy. ATP is pertinent in repairing the body from any forms of damage and promotes rejuvenation.
With regards to the effectiveness of Red Light Therapy, many studies prove its efficacy. In 2010, a study showcased that if red light therapy were used consistently for a few weeks, it would reduce the brevity of Psoriasis; this is precisely what occurred within a month of its implementation on a few patients.
Additionally, in 2011, a study was conducted to see whether this therapy is efficacious in aiding those with Psoriasis. There were 10 participants included in this study, and each of them was given exposure to the Red Light three times a week to exhibit results. In the end, the red light did prove to help treat scaling and itchiness.
