Everyday bites, burns, bruises and stings are most commonly treated with some home remedies. Only more serious conditions (or reactions) need a medical professional’s attention.
Like with so many conditions, Red Light Therapy helps with all these conditions and in some cases offers near instant relief.
Wounds, bruises, burns and splinters usually cause inflammation and pain in response to biological factors like infection from germs and stress.
Red light therapy delivers safe, natural and chemical free concentrated wavelengths of natural light to the skin and cells. These red and near infrared wavelengths of light stimulate those cells and reduce oxidative stress and whole range of beneficial bio-chemical responses, that enable the body to make more usable energy to power itself. This lowers inflammation & pain, increases function and speeds up the healing process.
Here’s how Red Light Therapy reduces the potential damage of cells and helps in healing the various injuries:
An ant, mosquito or any other bite can be treated fairly quickly with a Red Light Therapy device.
We advise washing and cleaning the bitten area before using the device. Take a dose of 10-20 minutes and see how the bite almost magically heals and disappears, continue applying the belt for up to an hour until pain completely subsides. A great way to alleviate the tears and pain of a little one’s misadventure and an event that could otherwise end a lovely day out with the family!
If the bite has caused ongoing pain or shortness of breath, swelling and fever beyond the application of the belt seek advice from a medical professional immediately in case it is an allergic reaction.
Grazes, bruises and/or cuts must be cleaned thoroughly before using the Red Light Therapy device.
We strongly recommend using the therapy prior to putting any topical cream or ointment over the bruise. A bruise is caused by dead (or dying) tissue and blood cells, which the red light regenerates.
See how it looks and feels after a dose of 10-20 minutes, if pain persists then visit a doctor.
Apply cold water on the burn immediately as you would for about 20 minutes. Then use your Red Light Therapy device, for 10-20 minutes to get instant relief.
In some cases the regenerated skin is usually healthier and better looking than the surrounding skin of the burn as Red Light Therapy helps the body to produce more usable energy to power itself, regenerate, and heal.
A bee sting can be quite painful and for instant relief, wash the area and remove the sting if still present then grab your Red Light Therapy device.
A dose of 10-20 minutes on the affected area will not only relieve pain but also reduces the inflammation. Continue the treatment for 2-3 days with a dose a day.
However, if the sting doesn’t look good or pain persists then go and see a doctor.
Red Light Therapy is natural, non-invasive, chemical free, with no side effects.
