On Red Light Therapy

Your red light session will depend on how close you are to the unit. If you are within 6" of the red light, we recommend a 15-20 minute session per treatment area. If you are 12"+  from the red light, we recommend a 20-30 minute session per treatment area. You can't really overdo it, but sessions longer than noted above may not bring you additional benefits.

Unlike most competitors' lights that have a fixed angle lens, Clearlight's exclusive Variable Optic Lenses provide maximum  skin coverage and the most benefits in the shortest time.

No, special eye protection is not necessary. Clearlight Red Light Therapy can be used without eye protection, and standard sunglasses provide adequate protection. We include optional goggles with our products for added comfort during the adjustment period.

There are no known side effects to red light therapy when used as directed.

*Red Light Therapy Contraindications
If you have a serious health issue or chronic illness, consult your doctor or pharmacist before starting Red Light Therapy to address any concerns or medication interactions.
• Red Light Therapy is generally safe and pain-free, with no severe side effects reported. However,
some users have experienced minor side effects such as headaches, irritability, and eye strain.
• Consult your doctor if you have bipolar disorder, as rare cases of Red Light Therapy causing mania in
bipolar patients have been reported.
• To avoid potential risks, protect your eyes during Red Light Therapy sessions and refrain from
staring directly into the light.
• If you have photo-sensitivity conditions like lupus or are on medications that make you
photosensitive, it’s best to avoid red light therapy.
• Trust your instincts and if you notice any changes during Red light therapy speak to your doctor
promptly to address any concerns. Your well-being is our top priority.

Red light therapy is less invasive and operates at lower energy levels, making it suitable for regular use and targeting a wider range of wellness applications compared to laser therapy.

Red light therapy has shown promising benefits in wound healing. However, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional for specific guidance on using red light therapy for fresh wounds or injuries. They can provide personalized advice based on your condition and the stage of healing.
