Devices for Red and/or Infrared Light Therapy
Red light therapy devices work by boosting overall cellular energy, increasing the production of collagen, elastin, which at the same time results in more microcirculation. Red and Infrared light are therefore quite suitable to apply at areas of pain. That's why people also talk about it as a LED pain reliever.
High energy beams of red LED light are emitted for a fractional phototherapy effect. The red light penetrates the skin and optimizes the level of natural collagen resulting in plumper, firmer skin. The gentle warming on the skin, generated by the light, prepares your skin for increased absorption of lotions and creams that you will apply after the treatment. See here red light therapy devices for skin and anti-aging.
There are devices mainly for pain relief such as TenDlite, Beurer, RubyLux, KS-9800, Quell, LightStim, LumiWave, and there are also infrared heat therapy mats/pads UTK, providing negative ion therapy with typenames such as Belt25, Belt28 , Jade100.
Infrared light treatment can be quite effective for example significantly reducing chronic back pain, as shown in controlled trial, registered in the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
There are also devices claiming to combine pain relief as well as skin care.
Here and there you may see the abbreviation DTP mentioned. It means "electromagnetic spectrum" and stands for Diancibo Teding Pu.
