How Joovv Light Therapy Works
Without getting too far into the weeds, our cells are essentially given an energy boost when they absorb light, specifically red wavelengths at 660 nm and near infrared wavelengths at 850 nm. Studies have shown these specific wavelengths enable our cells to perform critical functions at a higher level – leading to enhanced ATP production, reduced oxidative stress, enhanced immune system function, increased collagen production, faster muscle recovery, and a whole lot more.
What is the difference between red and near-infrared light?
Both red light at 660 nm and near-infrared light at 850 nm have been proven to enhance cellular function. The main difference is that red light at 660 nm is readily absorbed by skin tissue leading to improved skin health and collagen production. Near-infrared light at 850 nm is invisible to the human eye and penetrates into deeper tissue, leading to benefits like increased muscle recovery and decreased joint pain.
Do I need to wear eye protection during my treatment?
There has been a significant amount of research conducted using photobiomodulation (PBM) for eye health benefits. Essentially, the specific wavelengths we use are effective at boosting cellular function, including cells in the retina. Many studies have shown how PBM can repair damaged retinal function. For this reason, we recommend letting your eyes be exposed to the light.
Can I wear clothes when using the Joovv light?
You can wear clothes or you can be nude, whatever you prefer. Just make sure the area of your body you’re treating with the Joovv Light is fully exposed to the light. Here at GSO Cryo, we have a locking door to ensure your complete privacy during your Joovv light treatment.
How soon can I expect results from the Joovv light?
It’s well-documented that red and near-infrared light provides cellular health benefits but the time required will depend on your desired health outcomes. Most people will see benefits like increased muscle recovery, pain relief, and wound healing fairly quickly, some as soon as after the first session. However, enhanced skin health, like reducing wrinkles and scars, can sometimes take 8-12 weeks.
