Poly Red Light Therapy is the release of anti-aging red light wavelengths through the skin. This kindles cellular rejuvenation by increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen and elastin. It also stimulates the skin by reaching out to the mitochondria (the cell’s powerhouse). It is here that the energy of the cell is generated. Once inside the mitochondria, it triggers the skin to improve the appearance of the skin.
POLY stands for Polychromatic Light Therapy System. It is the latest development in LED light therapy. It is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, chiropractors, and estheticians. It is FDA-approved and has a proven track record for skin rejuvenation. It removes acne scars, reduces lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenates skin, which makes you look younger.
Red light easily enters the skin, which increases circulation, and provides nutrients in the area. Stimulation of collagen and elastin helps the skin to become plump and firm. POLY energizes the skin and repairs damaged cells, bringing back the skin’s youthful look.
Other names for Red Light Therapy are:
Low-level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Soft Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy
Low-power Laser Therapy (LPLT)
Red-light beds found at salons like BR SunSpa help reduce cosmetic skin issues, like wrinkles and stretch marks. In medicine, it is used to treat more serious conditions like psoriasis, slow-healing wounds, and chemotherapy side effects.
POLY Red Light Therapy is different from other laser or IPL (Intense Pulse Light) therapies since it doesn’t damage the skin’s surface. It directly stimulates the regeneration of the skin by penetrating around 5mm below the surface.

POLY RLT is usually not covered by your health insurance. Verify with your insurance first before treatment.
This is not a one-time treatment. You might be treated one-three times a week for weeks or months.
Results will vary for each individual. Everyone’s skin is different. It will also depend on how the wavelength penetrates your skin.
See your doctor first to get a diagnosis and discuss apt treatment options.
Based on current scientific research, RLT is a good tool to add to your skincare regimen. Be mindful to check with your doctor to start something new. You can buy RLT devices online, but it is best to get your doctor’s opinion before trying to self-treat.
