Whether it’s elective or not, pain and inflammation after surgery is a reality anytime you go under the knife. Inflammation, which is actually an inflammatory response, is a part of the body’s immune response to injury, among other things, and often goes hand in hand with pain. In other words, more inflammation, more pain. But with all the adverse effects of narcotic pain relievers, it’s not surprising that more and more people are opting for natural or non-addictive options to relieve pain and inflammation. One of the best options out there is an FDA-cleared device called LightStim—and it may also make you look younger.
Red light therapy is a key therapeutic treatment for inflammation that works by penetrating the body at the cellular level with specific wavelengths of light, reducing swelling and supporting tissue repair and regeneration. LightStim in particular, combines this therapeutic light energy with patented technology as an inflammation after surgery treatment in an easy-to-use, at home device. It accelerates the body’s recovery process by increasing circulation and is even FDA cleared to relieve pain. When used right after surgery (and beyond), it can help significantly with swelling, bruising and even with post-surgery scarring.
Similarly to how it treats pain, red light therapy also works for wrinkles by penetrating the body at the cellular level with specific wavelengths of light, allowing cells to work more efficiently at repairing skin, boosting new cell growth and enhancing skin rejuvenation. LightStim for Wrinkles in particular, combines this therapeutic light energy with patented technology in an easy-to-use, at home device. It accelerates the body’s rejuvenation process by providing wavelengths of light energy to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, you can help recapture a plump, youthful appearance. Red light therapy has also been shown to
- Stimulate collagen production
- Increase fibroblast production, the building-blocks of collagen
- Increase blood circulation to skin tissue.
- Reduce inflammation in cells.
