When shopping for Red Light Therapy panels, the most prominent feature is becoming the Watts (W). Many red light panel companies are now simply naming their panels by the number of Watts.  Should you get the 45W, 300W, 450W, 600W, 900W, or 1500W model from certain brands? What are Watts and what does it mean?  Is a panel with 5 Watt LEDs better than one with 3 Watt LEDs? Lets first understand the meaning of Watts in red light therapy, and then how to choose the right amount of Watts. What is a Watt? A Watt is a unit of...

Most red light panel brands are stating something like “no EMFs at 6 inches away.” Or “zero EMF exposure at treatment distance”. Why is that statement there? What are EMFs, and why do nearly all brands mention it? What happens if you ARE exposed to those EMFs?   EMFs are Electromagnetic Frequencies, which we defined in a previous blog about what they are and how they are generated in red light panels. In this blog, we dig up the original reasons why many brands still talk about EMF, and look into the scientific literature to see if there is any...

How long should you use red light therapy? We know that the amount of time is connected to the dose of photobiomoduation. Which is critical to proper use and effectiveness. But we think that time plays a much bigger role in effectiveness than you are being told. A quick recap, here is the simple formula for red light therapy dosing. Dose (J/cm^2) = Intensity (mW/cm^2) ÷ 1000 * Time (Seconds) Theoretically, we could just focus what we call the dose. Two-Dimensional Dosing Theory: The dose relates to the biological effect of red light therapy. Too little dose gets no response....
