Red light therapy harnesses the power of red and near-infrared light to influence cellular function. Most available research on it has been published in the last 15 years, but it has a longer history of use, in some ways as old as time. In the scientific community, red light therapy is nowadays most usually called photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) or low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT).
While previously the common knowledge in human biology has been that visible light can affect human bodily processes predominantly via the eyes, red light therapy is based on a large body of scientific findings demonstrating that 600-1000 nanometer light can have effects in the irradiated tissues via multiple mechanisms. More than five thousand research articles on red light therapy have been published, and the volume of new research is increasing every year.

660nm & 850nm
Each CytoLED panel emits both 660nm and 850nm wavelengths, two of the most researched wavelengths. 660nm is visible to the human eye, and looks red. 850nm is not visible, but many cameras can pick it up and show it as a purple-ish hue. Of the two, 850nm penetrates deeper. Our lights contain 660nm/850nm in a 1.3/1 ratio, measured by irradiance.
pick your wavelength
Many of our devices (all except the Zero) allow you to select Red only, NIR only, or to have both at the same time.
Red light is most suited for treating more superficial tissues, such as the skin, as it penetrates less deeply.
Near-infrared light is suited for treating deeper tissues, such as muscles, as it penetrates more deeply.

"I've been using the red light for a little over a year now and I just can't go without it. I've experienced palpable benefits to my exercise recovery and general wellbeing, as well as some cosmetic improvements to my skin and hair. I'd recommend it to almost everyone looking to have better health and overall wellbeing."

"It cannot be easier to get the benefits from red light even from a certain distance (~a meter away) ! I use it every morning - when it is not sunny - during my yoga. It's the perfect start of the day 🙂."
"I’ve been using red light therapy for more than 7 months now and I can highly recommend it : my skin, my mood, my sleep and metabolism have increased a lot. I wanted a red light because I’m living in Paris and I was constantly in a bad mood without natural light and sun. My knee was also painful after an injury that required a surgery. I wanted a local and natural therapy to improve my joints/tissues. After a few weeks : my skin is prettier, I have a constant mood and energy all day long even without sun, and with a longer use, I can now say that my knee isn’t as painful as it was. Red light therapy is my daily self care moment and obsession!"
"After trying it at a friend's house, I quickly got my own CytoLED light. I really love the feeling of the light on my skin, there's a little warmth but it doesn't get too hot. One of the benefits I noticed is that it helped me relax which made it easier to fall asleep. I feel like that relaxation also helped my exercise recovery."
"I did a lot of shopping around for red lights and I'm very pleased I bought the One. It's been an integral part of my health regimen for the last 2 months, not only does it make me feel great but it is easy to use and has a nice look. I couldn't find any other companies that offered the same quality therapeutic red lights for a similar price. The light exceeded my expectations, I will consider a larger device in the future to treat my whole body at once. Customer service was great, my questions about usage were answered in great depth by email."
