First researched by NASA for use in the Space Program, deep penetrating red light therapy can help reverse and control the visible signs of aging – while also effectively treating minor muscle and joint aches. All-natural RED light and infrared light penetrates and absorbs deep into tissue, activating the production of endorphins, blocking pain-transmitting chemicals and stimulating cellular regeneration for both wrinkle reduction and pain relief. Just nine minutes a day can bring relief from a long list of health issues with no known negative side effects. Simple to use; comes with a Velcro strap for attaching to affected areas or mount to its stand for facial use. 20-page information booklet included. FDA approved/cleared (510(k) is K081570) USA.

Benefits of RED Light Therapy Treatments

Stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site.

Stimulate fibroblastic activity, which aids in the repair process. Fibroblasts are present in connective tissue and are capable of forming collagen fibers.

Increase vascularity (circulation). Circulation is increased by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen as well as more nutrients needed for healing and they can also carry more waste products away.

Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reaction of the cell. It is the body’s fuel.

Increase lymphatic system activity. Edema, which is the swelling or natural splinting process of the body, has two basic components. The first is a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system, and the second is comprised of the proteins, which have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of light therapy. The venous diameter and the arterial diameters can also be increased. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.

Increase RNA and DNA synthesis. This helps damaged cells to be replaced more promptly. Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue. The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to the area being treated. These ions assist in firing the nerves thereby relieving pain.

Increase phagocytes, which is the process of scavenging for and ingesting dead or degenerated cells by phagocyte cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.

Induce a thermal like effect in the tissue. The light raises the temperature of the cells although there is no heat produced from the diodes themselves.

FDA cleared (510(k) is K081570) Frequently Asked Questions:

How often and how long should I use the RED Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device?
The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is designed to run for nine (9) minutes per treatment. We recommend taking two (2) treatments daily for the first month and then two treatments a week after that. If you miss a treatment, don’t worry; just extend the daily treatments for the lost days.

How long until I see results?

Everyone’s skin varies, but most people feel and see a difference in about four treatments. Because of differences in damaged skin, some people will see the benefits almost immediately and others will need more treatments. Typically within a few uses, people feel a tingling in their skin, a slight warmth and a tightening of their skin. Then users start seeing the fine lines and wrinkles start to disappear as their skin plumps up. Because treatments are progressive, we recommend treatments for at least ten (10) weeks, for best results.

Does Deep Penetrating Light Therapy work on everyone?
The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is proven to work on all skin types. There is over a 90% success rate for people using our system correctly. The most difficult skin to help is people who (1) have had sever sun damage, (2) are or have been smokers, and (3) are very thin.

Can this hurt my eyes?
No studies have been found showing any harmful effects to the eyes when using our product correctly. However, we recommend not staring directly into our LEDs.

Why can’t I see light from some of the LEDs?
These LEDs (880 nanometers) are on and working properly. You cannot see them because they are in the infrared spectrum, which is not visible to the human eye. Some digital cameras and camcorders will display the infrared lights.

Can I combine Deep Penetrating Light Therapy with other skin care?
Yes. Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device can be used alone or with other skin care treatments. Many physicians have found Deep Penetrating Light Therapy to complement other treatments.

Will Deep Penetrating Light Therapy hurt?
No. Unlike lasers or other ablative (skin harming) treatments, Deep Penetrating Light Therapy is non-thermal, non-ablative, and non-invasive. Clients report no discomfort or pain associated with Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device treatments.

I have high blood pressure – will using this hurt me?
There is no evidence using the Deep Penetrating Light Therapy will increase blood pressure, but if you are concerned we recommend you always consult your physician.

Where is the product made?
The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is made in the USA (Colorado).

What is the difference between LASERS and LEDs (or the Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device)?
Lasers are more powerful than LEDs and they hurt the skin in order to heal the skin and grow collagen. The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device doesn’t hurt the skin; but penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate fibroblasts which creates collagen and elastin.

What is the Wattage of the system?
The most important question is that the DPL™ System produces 4 Joules per centimeter squared. Our product meets the NASA specifications. The DPL™ System produces 30 Watts of power.

Do I need to take off my makeup before using the system?
You Do Not have to remove makeup for the treatments to be effective. Because there is some slight warmth felt on the face during the treatments you might want to remove your makeup for comfort reasons.

How long has it been out?
The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device has commercially available out for over 3 years, but the technology and use in Dermatologist offices has been available for several years.

How do you use it?
Turn unit on and place your face about ¼ to ½ inch from the middle of the system. The system will turn off at the end of nine (9) minutes.

How does it help pimples and blemishes?
The LED lights help fight bacteria and the increased blood circulation the LEDs produce helps heal wounds with new cells.

Is it FDA Approved?
No. The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is a cosmetic device and not a medical device and does not need FDA approval.

How long will the LEDs last?
The LEDs are rated for 2,500 hours and with normal use should last many years. LEDs are not like light bulbs with filaments, but have solid state chips inside.

Will the Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device help any other issues?
YES, the same LED design and power will help with minor pain and inflammation and has been shown to help with pimples and blemishes. Some people have reported that it helped reduce scars. 9”L x 11½”W x 16¾”H; 4 lbs.

The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device produces 4 Joules per centimeter squared. The product meets the NASA specifications, and produces 30 Watts of power.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light therapy works I have been using this product for two years. I was lucky to get it on a sale day. At first I used it on my face for wrinkles. Then I shifted to working on muscle aches and strains. Now I am using it also for arthritis on my knee. It really helps and on days I skip my "session" of at least 17 minutes I do feel the difference. It is a little clumsy to use. I never use the stand. I often put it on my body directly and my face and never use the stand. I would highly recommend it. September 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by DPL I started to use the DPL about a week and a half ago and have not missed anytreatment sessions. I'm starting to a few slight changes in facial appeearance along with some dark spot reduction. will let you know more at the end of ten weeks. October 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING DEVICE I was skeptical when I bought this but the reviews were so positive. I thought I would give it a chance. This therapy device works! I have a chronic skin condition that I have struggled with for years - even the dermatologist has run out of ideas to help. Within 2 weeks of using this, I am noticing positive changes. Even friends are commenting on how much better my skin looks! I am delighted! August 1, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Awkward to Use After a lot of research about light and infrared therapy, we purchased the light therapy device from Gaiam. We needed a device that would relieve back pain and promote health to other areas, such as knees and arms. The paddles were very awkward to use, and would not stay in place. We give the device 2 stars, because it did heat up extremely well, and it was rejuvenating for the face, but not what we needed it for long-term. Overall Pros . Heats up very well . Great for face only Cons . Awkward . Next to impossible to use anywhere, except for the face . Too hot when placed directly on skin Was able to return the device with ease. Great customer service and return policy! June 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Anti-Aging System...Period I can't tell you how much I LOVE this system. It is so easy and relaxing to use. My skin looks better now in my forties than it did in my thirties and possibly even my twenties! I also love that this tool relieves pain so my entire family can benefit from it's healing lights. I highly recommend this to EVERYONE! December 30, 2011

NASA made seminal discoveries showing that "near infrared light" has important health benefits.  Does this device generate near infrared?  If so, at what wavelengths and how much power.  The supplier  could easily  calculate this from specs supplied by manufacturer of the LEDs that are used in the unit.

Answer: 
You will want to avoid any open sores when using the Deep Penetrating Red Light Therapy Device. The system will increase circulation and stimulate which could increase bleeding. Wait a few days until the sore heals and then introduce Light Therapy. It will help with the recovery.
