Face yoga is one of the best methods for tightening and firming up the skin of the face. If you were to add red light therapy on top of your face yoga sessions, you can really accelerate the entire process and thus get much better results. An ideal way to think about it is to think of it like a LED facial. Face yoga is responsible for facial muscle tone and red light therapy is known to increase the production of collagen in the body. When you combine these two things together, the results will get you a youthful appearance. This can all be achieved without having to spend tons of money and you also do not have to worry about any risks like you would have to with face-lifts.
Red light is also part of the natural light spectrum that is radiated by the sun. Also, owing to the fact that these lights do not have any ultraviolet light in them, it means that red light will not cause any damage to the skin. What this means is that this is a type of therapy that is completely safe and natural, and it is one that is effective without posing any dangerous side effects.
The use of red light in order to improve the health of the skin and also to minimize any signs of aging has long been documented. This type of therapy is also known as photobiomodulation and/or low-level laser light therapy.
There are literally thousands of people worldwide who are utilizing this type of therapy in order to reduce the signs of aging and to also minimize the appearance of wrinkles. If you were to combine this therapy model with a few face yoga sessions, it really does have the potential to do absolute wonders in terms of restoring an appearance that is healthy and youthful. Let us take a closer look at how that is achieved.
Red light works by a method that is known as mitochondrial photostimulation. This method has a type of bioactive effect on the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the energy centers of the cells of the body. The process is very much similar to how photosynthesis works in plants. When a person undergoes red light therapy, the light interacts with the mitochondria. This has the result of stimulating the production of ATP molecules which serve as the main fuel for the cells of the body. When these cells are energized, they become cells that are much more high-functioning. They are more effective and are also more resistant.
Red light also has the ability to enhance the proliferation of cells. What this means is that it will lead to a much more efficient life cycle of the cells. This really does have a lot of rejuvenating effect on the largest organ of the body which happens to be the skin.
Red light therapy also has the ability to stimulate the production of newer capillaries in the bloodstream. This is really beneficial for us as it increases the circulation of blood in the body and it also has the ability to reduce inflammation which is the main reason for the poor health of the skin.
Red light therapy also has the ability to boost the production of collagen within the body. Collagen is the main structural protein located in the connective tissues of the body and it is also one of the primary building blocks for our skin. Collagen levels decrease as people start to age and this can cause the skin to become very thin and also kind of papery. Red light has the ability to reverse this process and, as mentioned before, increase the production levels and also the density levels of collagen.
Elastin is yet another protein that is found in the connective tissues and it is found especially in the skin. The main function of this is to maintain the elasticity of the skin. What this does is that it allows a lot of the tissues within the body to get back to their normal shape after they get stretched. This includes some of the main tissues in the body such as ligaments and tendons, and also the skin. Skin that is aged and sun-damaged can quite often become a lot less elastic and it may not bounce back to its original form after it has been stretched. What this results in is skin that is sagging completely. Red light has the ability to fight this issue by increasing the level of production of elastin within the body and thus, it can really help the skin in maintaining the youthful appearance it has.
