Red Light Therapy
Ship Shape Tanning now has Red Light Collagen Therapy.

Red Light Collagen Therapy is a natural "anti-aging" skin treatment. 

Red light collagen therapy lamps stimulate cells to produce collagen & elastin. As we age, the collagen & elastin produced by our cells is greatly decreased, causing lines & wrinkles. Stimulating the collagen & elastin production with red light collagen therapy will actually diminish those lines and wrinkles!

Phototherapy using collagen fluorescent lamp technology has numerous benefits to users. Today, people seek to age and fight aging naturally. In the pursuit of youthful skin and attractive appearance, they move away from invasive or painful treatments such as ablative lasers, dermal fillers, chemical peels or face lifts. Not only the costs, but also the risks of these methods are high: lengthy downtimes, pain or other side effects such as erythema, bruising, swelling or transient headaches. The fact that collagen light therapies have no downtime, are safe and effective with consistent results is significant for users.

Red light therapy is characterized by a specific wavelength of visible red light. Studies have shown that this visible red light penetrates to the bottom of the dermis down to the fatty layer to stimulate collagen production.

While red light stimulates the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, it also increases oxygen and nutrients. Red light in the visible light spectra between 600nm and 700nm also stimulates the skin cell’s vitality, moisture retention, and permeability. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow up to 150 to 200% faster and deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue when exposed to certain light wavelengths. Although studies show red light will reduce inflammation and has been known to enhance the wound repair process, we are only using red light for cosmetic benefits. Any other beneficial side effects are not to be considered medical treatment.

There is no UV light associated with red light therapy, therefore the skin does not tan or burn from exposure to red light.

Red Light therapy has shown to have the following benefits:

Based on research, collagen lamps may improve skin tone and texture, control pigmentation spots, help reduce pore size, encourage vibrant looking skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The red light also stimulates blood circulation and repairs elastin fibers within the tissue to help keep the skin firm. Individual results will vary.

People with the following conditions should avoid exposure to collagen red light devices:

• if you are photo-allergic or take medication or use cosmetics that may cause light sensitivity
• if you suffer from porphyria
• if you suffer from epilepsy
• if you take cortisone or steroid injections
