    Default too much red light therapy may cause wrinkles ??

    just read this on a website...

    'There can be too much light therapy. As the cells are excited and activated to produce more ATP, there is also an increase in oxidation. So long-term high-dose light therapy can cause aging by oxidation. Anti-oxidants in food are well know to be very helpful and excessive oxidation can use up these nutrients. '

    This seems odd as many of those selling rlt are claiming it has anti ageing properties.

    Hello

    Well I have been using RLT since 1998 and I am wrinkle free. Cough cough maybe it's only the girls that get wrinkles

    Seriously red light is renowned for helping the skin remain very soft and smooth and I have seen or heard nothing to the contrary.

    Thanks

    Peter

    perhpas the person who wrote this has made it up. I have never seen this written anywhere else either.

    Do you think the red light therapy has prevented wrinkles for you Peter?? do you look young for your age??

    Hello moomy

    I thought it was a recognised fact that red light in many cases does make the skin very smooth and soft for those that use it regularly. Well I'm not aware of having wrinkles but being a great big bully ( :evil: ) it doesn't concern me whether I have or not, providing rosacea stays away.

    I hope I don't look my age .

    I have heard rumours that bullys don't get wrinkles (eg Anne Robinson). But it is hard to verify this.

    Are you an prolific bully or a occasional bully??

    i wouldnt take this to seriously. theres alot of nonsense on the internet. i remember reading an article where it said that retinol thins skin when in fact it does the complete opposite(according to serious medical journals). im no expert but i don't get how anything that increases collagen synthesis can give one wrinkles.

    Hello moomy

    Well hopefully I'm not considered to really be a bully in most peoples eyes. I don't really have time anyway because I am too busy (along with others) being a drama Queen - well that's what I have been told I am whenever I try and find out the truth.

    As far as RLT is concerned, well I think it really does help prevent wrinkles and keeps the skin looking young. I did hear once that a famous model uses it for that very reason and the guys at Dermalux told me that the women in their office, used to use a lamp during their lunch hour to help their skin. Suppose the only way people can test the theory is to try it themselves.

    Bye

    Peter
